Nice resort but not worth the money”
After staying over 2 weeks in the Philippines this resort was nice but definitely not worth the money that we spent. We only stayed one night to be close to the airport for our departures the next day. Check in was fine and our bellman was great. We went to the beach shortly after check in but there were not enough lounge chairs for everyone that wanted to be at the beach. The walls of the room are paper thin so you can hear everything and we had a loud group outside our room until about 11:00 pm when we had to get up at 3am. The bathroom also smelled of sewage. We didn’t feel the need to complain since we were only there for one night and if we were paying a 3rd of the price it would be fine but I just felt it was necessary to write this review given the high price we paid.
Exceptional Staff, facility needs maintenance.”
Like stated in many other reviews, the rooms are indeed spacious. The staff here are truly a caring group and Understand customer service. Our room's hot water did not work and they were responsive, moving us to a room with great hot water. AND the house keeping staff brought my shoes (that I forgot) to our new room.... See - Exceptional. Now, the physical plant could use some maintenance. I blame the leadership for this. You charge for the room and then charge an additional ~20% resort fee. So, my expectation is you improve your infrastructure. There is lousy water pressure, a few lightbulbs out, and your WiFi, while pretty decent by Philippine standards is SLOW. This is what our second stay at the facility. We'll be back I'm sure. Note: ARC Hospital is about 1.5Km away. Brand New facility. Had to go there after some bad streetside food (my fault). Excellent doctor!
Underwhelmed by the beach but loved the staff”
I used to love going here because of how clean and beautiful the place is so husband and I decided to celebrate our anniversary here. However, the beach was very dirty. Not swimmable at all esp considering the sand under water, it was very slimy. I loved how the staff were so warm though and their nightly performances were really prepared for. Food is also good :)
- Breakfast was good. - Dinner was also good and came with entertainment. The dancing was somewhat traditional. - Walking distance to a supermarket/grocery store. - We stayed at one of the premier deluxe rooms in front of the ocean. I highly recommend staying in these rooms. - This is a big resort, and there are golf buggies available to drop you to your room. Note - if you are a smoker, you are not allowed to smoke anywhere inside the resort (even on your balcony/veranda) and only at the designated smoking area located at the front of the resort. This is one of the biggest drawbacks for a couple who are smokers. The hotel advises this is due to the Philippines President. We stayed at Henann in Bohol who have a number of smoking areas within their resort (pool bar, areas within the hotel vicinity). This needs certainly needs to be reviewed. Overall stay at hotel was enjoyable.
Best resort ever!”
Me and my husband stayed here for labor day weekend, and our trip was nothing short of AMAZING! the staff treats you like you are literally the only one there! every staff mbr we had a encounter with they spoke to us no matter if they seen us 3 times earlier, the breakfast buffet is amazingggg! OMG i wish we could go back. we tried extending a extra night just because we loved it that much but the hotel was booked to capacity :( also there is so much to do on the private island. we did the island hopping tour on saturday through the hotel, and also requested for whaleshark on sunday which topped off our weekend! thanks Mimi (manager) for catering to us while we stayed at your resort
Pool needs cleaning ”
Pool needs cleaning many dried leaves on it and also the prices at the restaurant had some hidden charges. It could be more amazing if they'll included the taxes and service charge at the prices menu. Overall the resorts is amazing.
Stayed for the last two days of our vacation just to chill and do nothing. Beach front room, very very clean, huge bathroom which is very a bliss after staying in 3 stars hotels for days, shower hot enough unlike other hotels in Cebu WiFi working in most places of the resort. Beach was very nice, big enough. Pool seems a bit small though but we stayed on beach area most of the time. Food of course a bit over-priced but not too bad. Breakfast was quite good with a range of different selections.
My husband and I were hotel and resort hopping .We been to Shangri - La Mactan resort, J park , Marco Polo hotel.Inn our last days,we decided to stay in Bluewater ,Maribago for 2 days even we heard so many bad reviews . Reason for our stay was Bluewater was one of the resorts we plan to hold our college reunion on 2019. We were in room 270. The room was comfortable, clean. The bathroom was clean. The shower/tub combo was not safe friendly. The glass partition was covering half of the shower so water spilled into the floor.Was slippery. The worst is the no visitor after 10 pm rule. My guest could not even go back to my room to use the restroom because we were told by the front desk that we will be charge if there was guest after 10 pm. The outside restroom were locked up. We cannot call a taxi from inside the resort.Had to walk a block with our luggage. We were encouraged to utilized the shuttle for 300 pesos per person.Too expensive.Beach sand was muddy & water smells.
Luxury by our private beach”
The place is wonderful, only caution is that some rooms are closer and some rooms are further from the beach. If you'd like your stay in relaxation, take the spa suites. If you'd like your stay to be beach sun-kissed, better to get a room with beach views. Breakfast is awesome variety and very tasty
Upon arrival, we were greeted by courteous staff and served with iced cold refreshments. Sheena was very attentive to our needs and requests. The room is spacious, clean and with a very homey design. We really enjoyed our stay here. Kudos to all the staff and to the hotel management.
It was great!!”
I've been there during my summer holiday. It was nothing better than that but small beach along with. There are 3 swimming pools and they're all satisfied. The scenery is also good for me. I could stay there relaxed.
This is the place which only I wanna have ”
15to20mins from airport, have private beach, kind staff, clean room and 3 pools, reasonable price!!! This is my 7th times visit. And I will come again. And Kristen in the reception , Nica in the restaurant is very nice staff. Already miss their smile~
Get there before 1pm and you possibly get room upgrade for 2000php. Absolutely lovely place. Check out Cove Seafood Restaurant, we had the place to ourselves and sat under the stars after our meal on a couch on the walkway to the restaurant. They have live bands on in evening on the little separate island. All in all lots to do and sea and eat! Of course it's not the cheapest but i still think very good value for money and the bathroom in seaview cottage is bigger than most rooms i stayed in. Tryed to book a second night and couldn't as it was fully booked. That says it all.
Stay with tranquility”
Very quiet place. As I was the one who was looking for indoor quiet stay, I think this hotel was best choice. Have many choices for morning buffet, dinner buffet, faster wifi connection compared to other hotels in cebu/mactan. There should be only one effort,... that is, hot water!!
Great place, great food and great staff ”
I stayed for the first time at the resort and I have been very pleasantly surprised with the quality of the staff, the nice and big rooms with super bathroom as well as the food. The food was especially good at the cove, the live seafood restaurant. I'd definitely recommend this resort!
Great stay, very good ambience for R & R”
Great stay for R & R, clean & well maintained resort. So lucky to have been upgraded to super deluxe room accommodation for free, no additional cost for me. The room is excellent, very clean & spacious. The toilet and bath's design is very good, but it would be better if the owner will have plan to provide bidet. We like the sumptous breakfast, especially the freshly bake bread. The food in their restaurant is too pricey, but the taste is very good. Hotel transportation services is also pricey, better to book grab taxi or you may request the security guard to call a cab for the hotel guest. If you are a beach lover, this is not meant for you, it's low tide when we were there, not so clean beach & the white sand is not real, it came from nearby provinces, good for photo ops only & not for swimming, better use the big pools to enjoy swimming. Overall the resort is good for R & R :)
Lovely upgrade to Spa wing”
We had to upgrade to a room in the spa wing because it was a busy weekend but I couldn't have been happier. The room was excellent in a quiet, private wing. The beds were spacious, as was the bathroom. The bathtub was the highlight! Really beautiful.
Clean, Big, Nice”
Well, I was not as impressed by the resort as I was by the pictures. First of all, as beautiful the bathroom is shown in the pictures, the bathtub is not functional just decorative. There is just not enough warm water supply to fill up the bathtub. You pretty much sit in cold water once the bathtub is filled up. So you better stick to the shower. My room also did not have any window but it did not bother me too much. There was a safe in the room, which is very important for me. The air condition is not too noisy. Otherwise it s a nice big resort with three pools where you can spend some time during the day. There is a beach but you can't swim. The water is too shallow and I doubt any other resorts close by have a beach where you can swim. The staff is very friendly and outside the resort are some cute restaurants and massage places in walkable distance. Overall it was not as good as I hoped but still felt a very relaxing place. Good for family with children. There was also wifi at my room. Not too fast to watch videos but good enough for emails or low bandwith activities. You not suppose to have visitors after 10pm but it's always easy to sneak someone in. The resort also offers massages but they are much more pricy than outside the resort.
Super comfort room and staff make you feel at home”
We go to this hotel about twice a year, even if we don't stay there, we have dinner there. The staff are very friendly and always make you feel very welcome. For the price you pay, the rooms are big and offer you all the things you need.
