The most difficult review I have had to write on TA. The resort is neither poor nor average but somewhere in between. On the one hand the resort is old, rundown and in need of a revamp and on the other hand the staff did all they could to make up for the short comings, especially the assistant manager who...

We spent two nights there to relax after the trip and stayed in the room close to the spa that are supposed to be nicer. Rooms are old, dark and noisy. The food is pretty bad and the only nice thing about the restaurant is the view of the one on the water. The pool is ok but impossible to...

I'd definitely take a room with the beachfront again. Best room is with the look straight for the beach, at the beach. You step out and you are at the beach! :) I loved it! The sand was white and very clear. One thing, if you go there for swimming in the sea, you are wrong! This one is more...

Credit has to be given to the hotels marketing team for the production of the website and other publications which elevate the hotel far too high for the unexpecting tourist/customer! The positives coming from my visit - 21:28 December 2012 would be: - staff friendliness, - Cleaning staff were excellent - nice beach and pools - food was above average...

Following a full day of travelling from Australia to Manila to Cebu, we arrived at the front of the resort and was greeted by beautiful staff who offered us a lemongrass cold drink which was just lovely.

The pickup and drop off were above average. Front office staff were very welcoming but was expecting the welcome drink and the hot/cold towels which were never offered. The room was a bit torn out; in closet had no safe; the wall had cracks; Lisa asked for a better room. The main food outlet was almost busy all the time....
