Wonderful Paradise Garden, view and service

View is awesome from attic windows, Attic room comfort excellent, service excellent with private attendant with excellent food with large choice of menu and fresh fruit juice, garden so beautiful and clean and paradisiac,nice kayak available with some local small coral reef
We truly enjoyed these 4 days in a little paradise. I highly recommend for everyone who enjoys nature, trees, plants, flowers, birds, mountain and sea view. Very quiet and contemplative. Ideal for couple who wants live romantic adventure. Points to improve would be internet in room (now only in the wharf) and better beach area.

Nice view but not much to do

View, friendly staff
The hotel was ok. Room was comfortable. It was quiet and relaxing. Had a lot of fruit bearing trees which I think is awesome. Farm animals are free to roam around. The place just needs to be landscaped well. They had a lot of great plants but it looks messy. The food tastes good but you have to wait roughly about 30mins. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful

Calm-Isolated Hotel

Good service-Expensive beverages and food.
If you choose this hotel, you must stay there like a prison.Nowhere to go.Nice view, but the beach frankly not good and the swimming pool small with chlorine.The people working are good , the food very good but very expensive.If you like Isolation is perfect.Gil

rooms are clean and okay but without TV/LCD inside

narra everywhere, mini zoo
Staffs are friendly and hospitable. I thought Chalet room reservations will be good for us as we would like to challenge the 217 steps going there. Its quite hard but fun. Very relaxing place with a nice view of the sea. My daughter and I appreciated those animals in the area. Looks like a mini zoo for us.! It would be convenience to all the guest if Wifi access is available in all areas in the resort. Thank you for the warm welcome.........
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Food menu are expensive better if you could bring your "baon" on your stay....

Nice hotel

NIce beach
. I have been upgraded.You can a pick from the next vallage to visit the city. The best time to swim is from 5 to 10 AM. Do not take the challe otherwise you need to walk for 200 steps. The hotel will try to have any additional chage from you. You have to take the hotel boat from Davao to Samal there is no car drive. Even if there is a car, there is no car roud to the hotel. You have to take the hotel boat to reach form Davao to the hotel. Last boat from Davao is 14:30. Last boat from Samal is at 13:00. The trip will take 1 hour in the see. There is no phone in the room. The is a bill you will ring it and they will come. There some ducks and chicken in the garden which is around the rooms.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: The next vallage people are very nice muslims.

rustic but lovely in every way

next door to pearl island
stay was a last-minute overnight fluke, and i loved it. here is itinerary: 1, hour boat ride to island; cocktail on private balcony of bungalow, fresh-caught dinner at beach, short hike up to jungle/"chalet", snorkel, fresh-caught lunch and boat-ride to mainland. flowers and cool birds everywhere.

A bad experience

Nice little Island but better/easier places to see
Booked only 1 night just to see what the place was like. The hotel will never answer the phone so we could not find out where to get picked up for free boat to hotel. Ended up costing 1600 peso just to get there and is not a fun trip. The hotel is average and has locals living right there in it. The food was good but pricey and we were told that we would have to stay an extra night because it was too windy to get the boat ride back to Davao. We were also told that the ferries would not be running either due to the mild wind. We didn't believe this and took motorbikes back to the ferries which were indeed operating all day.
Travel tip: Don't bother ! Head to Boracay or Palawan

nice nice nice..

a place to go to for adventure seekers and nature lovers.. the 217 steps to the room can be tiring but the view is wonderful.. dont book your return flight on the same day as your check out though.. the rain might be a problem..
