Allright, good for swimming and diving

Situated on the beach, diving center, snorkeling just 2 steps out of your room

Not fun, not comfortable

Nice beach location -- that's it
This hotel is in a nice location, and at one time was probably very nice. However, it's now run-down, and badly understaffed: Only 2 people were working there during our stay, and they were working 18-hour shifts. (The foreign owner was present, but never lifted a finger to help or even say hello.) The room had lots of problems: rock-hard bed, intermittent hot water, mosquitoes, cockroaches, and no TV reception. The breakfasts were OK, but other meals were mediocre. Plus, be aware that from the point on the road where your van or taxi drops you off, there are 177 steps down to the registration and dining area -- and, good luck finding anyone to help you with your luggage. If you want to go out to dinner, you'll have to climb those 177 steps. Returning, you'll have to descend them again, this time in the dark. (Take a flashlight with you.) The only redeeming characteristic of this place is the nice, private beach -- but during our stay it was very windy and cool, so we couldn't even enjoy that.

Quiet and serene

Materials, fixtures & furnitures used are of high standard. Personalized staff services. We enjoyed kayaking for almost an hour ( my first time to do it that long & that far distance.
The first day was discouraging. We transferred room from booked standard with porch due to non working faucet to adjacent room, but the hallway is dark due to non working light, so we had to transfer to ground floor. Unfortunately, the bath room is so smelly with leaks on pipe causing wet flooring due to non maintenance of the plumbing system. There was a dead rat on shower room near the jacuzzi. The pool was dirty, perhaps it was due to rains the day before. The staff should be wearing uniform whether we were the only guests or not. These are all constructive criticisms which they have to consider seriously. Once done, the place can level up & be more competitive to attract more guests.

Nice Hotel & Restaurant
The place were kinda isolated which brings quietness and stillness, Great for travelers who just want to relax and unwind.. Great beachfront also, clear waters... Nice staff, very accomodating.

Nice & Cozy place

Big, Nice, & Clean rooms
The hotel was nice, the staff are very friendly and accommodating. So many things you can do like billiards & kayaking... The price of the food is a bit high but it compliments with the taste.

Depends upon your needs

Beautiful view and location
I brought my family to stay for 4 days over Christmas. The rooms are fine, the restaurant and bar area quite nice, the pool is lovely, the view is great and there is a nice small beach. But the jet ski is broken, the hobie cat is broken, the speedboat is broken and the ultra lite is broken. There is no banana boat. So the pictures on the website are misleading. As a dive resort I suppose it would be good, and the social time at the resto-bar is very good indeed, with nice music, friendly people and quite enjoyable. But, for a family vacation with the kids clamoring to go out on the jet ski etc...well, sorry, but I cannot recommend.

Very good hotel and good location

The stunning views.Good service.Big rooms.Bar area very good
The hotel is in a great location overlooking the bay.Views from the balcony are stunning.The hotel is not for the faint hearted because there are many steps to climb to the road if you want a tricycle depending of course which floor you are situated on.It has a well stocked bar if you want to look over the bay for a evening of relaxation.The staff and owner were very helpful in giving us a lot of information on places to visit and how to get there.Great jacuzzi and pools.Very clean in fact the afore mentioned.I would stay at this hotel again.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: A must is the Tamaraw Falls and the Tukuran Falls.
