So nice..quite pricy
Dec 2018 visit”
We went here for a double birthday celebration of my son and my in-law. The place was quite and huge with lots of instagramable spots and there were just another 2 couples when we checked in so it feels like we had the place to ourselves. A few problems we encountered are: weak water pressure both in rooms and public toilets. Big hungry mosquitoes! Slippery pool tiles (my in law slipped). Hard to climb stairs to go to the nearby beach which is not even worth visiting because of the rocky shore you can't swim in. And the climb back is just a torture especially in our case with a senior and a 3 yr old kid. Oh they have DVD players in our room, and we were allowed to borrow CDs for free but CDs are overused and just full of scratch the movies skipped or stopped playing. No internet at that time, cant remember but no signal as well I think(?) Still recommend it for the quiet escape it could provide those who wants that type of vacation.
A Nice, Off the Beaten Path, Family Vacation Spot”
We booked 2 Family Superior Rooms at this resort. The price of the rooms were a bit pricey but because the reviews were "Very Good", we tried to spend our family bonding there. I used Google Maps to navigate, although the place was easy to locate due to the adequate signage. The receptionist was very pleasant and helpful. Our rooms were located near the covered court and swimming pool. The rooms were quite small with 2 double beds, side tables, and 2 chairs. The rooms were adequately air-conditioned (split-type) with 2 additional wall fans. It has a 32-inch flat screen TV with cable channels, a personal ref and a safety deposit box. The towels and linens were quite old, but fresh. There is no hot and cold shower, but the water flowing out of the shower was very warm. We were given free basic toiletries. Near our building was a large covered court with a basketball court, a ping-pong table, and a badminton court. The balls and rackets can be borrowed free of charge.
cons no mobile signal and internet
Quiet and relaxing place, but needs improvement”
+ quiet and relaxing with lots of plants and trees. Rooms are big and comfortable, though not all are easily accessible (for seniors and pwd's). There really is no network signal or wifi, but that was clearly specified in the property details. Staff are nice and friendly, though some are not too quick to respond (i'm assuming they are still under training as they're in white uniforms) - upon check-in I was informed that they are only serving the buffet for dinner, no ala carte orders. It was like forced into us since it's not easy to get in and out of the resort to buy food from elsewhere. Also limited food selection. And if you want the beach, this is not the place for you.
If you want to stay off the grid, this place is the place! No cell service, no land line. ”
No cell service, no landline either! Not good for seniors or those who have mobility issues. Stairs everywhere! Pool is hot! And cloudy. No water filtration system. There were were 5 adults and 1 child sharing 1 bathroom. Staff were helpful trying to accommodate us. Tour to 100 islands was good
A nice retreat from all the busy-ness of life.”
This is a hidden gem in Pangasinan. The view of the sea is wonderful. There are also a lot of trees in the area. It was relaxing being one with nature and the sounds of different birds during twilight was very peaceful. The room we got was massive. The decoration was rustic and they had a lot of antiques. There was also a pool with warm water and a jacuzzi. They also have a movie theater, a game area, and sports area. They also offer other activities such as biking and boating. The food is also tasty. The only downside is that it's really far. There's about a 500m rough road to the resort. The other downside is that it requires to trek down to go to the beach area and the beach is not suitable to swin in.
This isn’t for kids & elders. Going to beach requires long walks or 395 steps from a steep hill. ”
Pros - Scenic views of the ocean. Quiet place to rest as you’re in the middle of forest. Cons- 1) The stairs are not kid & elder friendly. 2) You only have two options Going to the beach - either you take 395 steps from a steep heel, Or ask their van to drop you off in a plaza that’s 10-15 mins walk from the beach. 3) The beach is really rocky, and far from the resort. 4) The Pool area is slippery. 5) Food’s more expensive than manila. 6) Travel is too long , with dangerous cliffs, you need to travel at least 1hr to get a decent restaurant outside the resort. Overall, expensive considering these factors. But if you need to tune out of the digital world, stay here bec there’s no network.
Overall resort was nice however the first room that we checked-in had problem with the safe and telephone however they upgraded us and staff was helpful, manager was attentive to us and would like to say thank you.
We loved our stay in Salamagui Casita. It's very spacious, clean and recently renovated, close to the Cafe and the path to the beach. We were all five when we went there, 3 adults and 2 kids ages 4 and 9. Our kids enjoyed the pool, the beach is 395 steps down the property. We loved the island hopping tour, please don't miss it, its truly worth it.
We loved and enjoyed our stay. Don't miss the chance to book their island tour, the experience was nice the kids loved polipol and surip beaches however our boatmen that day were not able to let us swim in Patar beach as they said the way is too rocky for their boat to reach, the manager said maybe the boatmen who brought us were not yet familiar with the route but its a must see as they say its the Boracay of the North.
Disconnect to Rceonnect”
as the receptionist said you have to disconnect to the outside world to reconnect with your loved ones. that is what happened during our stay since there is barely a flicker of network signal nor wifi, we are left without a choice but to enjoy ourselves and everything Oldwoods have to offer. The beach is nearly private as the shore is hared by I think only three properties and u can have it to your own since its quite a steep climb back most guest prefer to stay within the close amenities. I would love the beach house (owners unoccupied private beach house to be converted to either accommodation or a small restaurant to cater to their beach goer which gives it a great private beach/resort vibe. not much of guest on a weekend since location is a little isolated but for me its the selling factor. rooms are very spacious. would definitely return! oh I should mention that THE STAFF ARE REALLY GREAT. they never seem to get tired and is very much willing to help even before you ask!
Very pricey for what they have to offer”
Little things that needs improvement. Lots of bugs. No transportation
Very good place to bond”
Due to lack of network (phone and net) it gives the visitors time to bond. They have movie theatre, badminton court and table tennis. A lot of outdoor tables .. Pool is child safe. Beach area is clean and a lot of marine life activities (live starfish, school of fishes of different kinds and sizes)😻 what could improve though is the breakfast buffet.. limited options and would appreciate if it is more Filipino cuisine to complete the package - nature and culture
stressfree vacay away from the city”
if you are a nature lover, a perfect place to relax. spending day in a stressfree environment. no signals in all networks.
Rainy Bani weekend”
We went there on a rainy / stormy day in June 2018. The kids still enjoyed the pool, they enjoyed the rain forest views despite the long ride to the hotel. The views are nice. on the downside, we did not get to the beach. The nearby beach has residents and a small community. I hope the LGU would have means to clean up the bay side. Garbage is accummulating in the area since the community doesnt have a solid waste collection in place due to the area being a remote one.
Greenery surrounding, fresh air, clean sheets and spacious room”
Clean rooms, fresh smelling sheets, delicious meals but a bit spicy. Friendly and accommodating staff. Very helpful. Downside: No WiFi No cellphone signal
The place is sooo gorgeous and very relaxing, the sea view is just breath-taking. I didn't miss being online AT ALL. (There's no Wifi connection in the resort and phone signal can be weak.) It's the perfect escape! All the staff are really lovely and they really took care of us during our stay. Their service is one of the best. Food is tasty and the rooms are clean. Water is very clear but the beach is not as good as other beaches like for example the white sand beaches of Bolinao. Nevertheless, everything else is p.e.r.f.e.c.t.! Will definitely go back.
Jewel by the Sea”
The staffs are really friendly. It's an amazing place for your social media detox. The place can be quite hard to find so make sure to be very careful especially at night.
perfect for soul searching. very nice place but the downside is no net, signal, etc.
