Great choice
The staff are friendly and very responsive to guests needs. The booked room was not available and they've upgraded my reservation to a suite. The ambience is very suitable for relaxation. there are multiple swimming pools, water sports and diving center as well. Breakfast is awesome, plenty of food varieties. The price is reasonable for such hotel with great facilities.

Policy issue
#1 - visitors of guests not allowed to be entertained in the room only at the lobby - I understand policy however it is inconvenient especially on our situation that we wanted to bond with family during our short visit. What is the issue there so long visitors never use any of the amenities??? Really disappointing #2 - Staff delivery of message about not allowing visitors to go to the room was unsatisfactory. She could have said, how I'd love to however based on policy not allowed and should have asked me if it was explained to me clearly especially that I booked in Agoda, frontdesk staff should be proactive. Also since I further asked favor, if I did not ask for a manager, she wouldn't do it, but she could have been proactive in checking so I did not have to haggle. I never had this kind of experience in any of the 5 star hotels in Cebu, reason the experience was very disappointing #3 during checkout, staff were not attentive. My husband handed them the keycard but they could not find it. #4 our IDs were not returned upon check-in and we noticed only when got to the airport that we didn't have our IDs ... so bad. Called the hotel and confirmed its at the frontdesk. We ask to send to suggested address. the following day we made a follow-up, the staff on duty said, the night shift staff did not indicate any instructions to send the IDs and also ask who should pay!?! See how huge the hassle and inconvenient! To make it short, we asked our relative to get the IDs from the hotel and send to us. # Agoda, please ensure that policies are stipulated clearly so I could have avoided White Sands but thanks for the experience and lesson

Superb place to stay but need to improve services
We really enjoyed the hotel. They upgraded our room for free and got a really spacious room. Breakfast is delicious and have lots of choices. There are so many flies though, and they cannot do something about it. Would be better if they have an option for guests to dine-in an air conditioned room. What really disappointed us was their security in-charge of recording the details of taxi requested by their guests. My husband lost his wallet in the taxi and they gave us the WRONG taxi company and plate number (they assured me it's the right one.) Fortunately, the security on the next hotel where we went got the correct details and helped us contact the driver and we were able to retrieved the wallet.
