No beach, tidal flats, poor activities

Food, cleanliness, friendliness
5.3
Afraid we were disappointed. Claims a white sand beach but it's a narrow coral and dirt frontage to a tidal coral area, filled with spiny sea urchins. No chance to just laze off the beach in welcoming water here. Sports equipment was limited and timed (30 minutes only) with no safety watch (for those who need it). Location is more than 20 minutes walk (inland - no path on coast) from the real beach on Panglao Island, meaning from all the restaurants, shops etc. So fine if you want to be away from it all (and they can organise tours) but no good if you just want to walk and swim and show your family around. No free shuttles either - they charge 75 pesos a head to get there. Service was super friendly - maybe too much so. You can't move without being asked something, sometimes several times the same thing by different people leading to confusion and/or annoyance. Building and pools are fine. The food (except breakfast) was really good. Was quiet and clean.

Real gem near(ish) to the bustle of Alona Beach

Friendly staff, quiet environment, clean well designed rooms

Very pleasant stay in this quiet hotel. Recommended for family get away. Has good activities, great pools, and very friendly and attentive staff. Food is fairly reasonable by Philippine standards. Rooms well designed and clean. Piping hot showers, but could be a bit more powerful! Shuttle bus to Alona is infrequent, but a tricycle will only be 100PHP. Brilliant place to chill out and dive from.

The Room was good, large bathroom, everything was clean. The bad thing was that the Resort did not have any real beach, no possibility to swim. The price for the rooms too expensive compared to other hotels in area. location out of centre and Alona Beach.

Nice view. This hotel was known for the view, how accommodating their staff were. They are really doing their best to serve their guest.

Everything was fine, just the restaurant its So-So. The staff is very friendly good installations. If you travel in December, the gala diner is a Total Fiasco, really cheap food and expensive.

Relaxing time in a nice hotel

We only have two things to critisise: the beach is under construction. At the moment, there is no beach at this hotel!! The sea in front of the hotel is not nice, lots of seagrass, water is not clear. Second, the restaurant is overpriced. The food is average only, but the prices were the highest we had on Panglao. Also, many meals are not available. Breakfast buffet is ok, but for European taste limited variety. But overall, a very nice place if you are looking for relaxation.
