Friendly but not worth the price
friendly staff, water sports access, cleanliness of facilities.
Like most Philippine properties a real rip off for the price. Room very small with no chair or desk--compared to other Asian bach properites this is truley a 3rd world hotel in picturesque setting with very friendly staff.

The place was so beautiful and quite. Nice beach.
the place was beautiful and quite and ideal for honeymooners. the malipano island was great and the white sandy beaches was so nice. I love the place.

A bit of luxury in paradise.
Room. location, atmosphere
Really nice stay in a beautiful room in a good location. Food was served in a temporary but nice place on the beach. A few modernisation works but ok.

quite overrated
close to the beach, fish feeding allowed and outdoor movie.
this resort is overrated. the samal house that we booked was not as nice as i expected it to be. we had to transfer to a mandala house which was bigger.. rooms arent well maintained. i think they forgot to clean our room before we checked in.. i noticed thick dust over the tables and chairs. service was quite slow. we had to wait for like 15 mins to get a golf cart to be able to go to the reception area and restaurants.

Not worth the money spent. Too expensive.
clear water by the samal suite
I did not feel safe. The mandaya rooms had an adjacent room which were used for those who went on day tours. Some of them were lingering in our balcony. Some mandaya rooms were renovated but the one given to us was the old one. We asked that we be given the renovated one, they declined because they were all occupied. However, because of the incident with the day tour guests, we were upgraded to a samal suite. The samal suite although beautifully situated still felt old. Over all, i think they need to renovate their rooms. Buffet did not look appetizing and did not have a much selection. The dinning staff were friendly though.
