    Very good. Hope they finish the beach soon. The road to hotel is terrible though. They have to do something about that.

    sole problem was unedible food, the chef cooks with massive amounts of oil for some reason, pancit canton choking with oil, not the best meal to eat

        I was there for an event so i didnt get to utilize their amenities in full but the place is beautiful and i will definitely come back! The only thing i dont like are the hotel security soliciting 100 pesos from grab/taxi drivers. Not sure if management new about that but that isnt a faur practice

        the facilities are ok but was so hi tech,i didn’t know how to operate like the flat iron,the casing was so complicated and there is no adoptor,the sink had no instruction were to locate the push button,the vault was also complicated to operate and all of that things was so annoying.i suggest also to clean under the bed because it was dusty,my child was playing hide and seek under the bed,though im perfectionist.and lastly,the staff i encountered when were about to check-in was so annoying,when i presented my ticket to the girl with a long curly hair ,she told me that my room was on side building,and so i went there bringing all my heavy things with my kid,and when i reached on the other building,the staff told me that my room was on the other building which we came from,and we went there again with all my heavy things.my excitement was gone because of what happened.and i waited so long for almost an hour just to enter our room.

        Place was nice. Breakfast was great, room was perfect for romantic getaways but the pool was meh. All the while I thought the place had a nice beach front where we could swim. I hope they develop that further because what they have right now is not "swimmable" at all.

        Mediocre service for an overpriced resort”
        Stayed at Solea on 22 Dec 2018. I arrived an hour earlier, and was told that check-in time was 3PM which I obliged. I came back to the lobby at exactly 3PM and only to be told that room isnt available yet and check-in late at 3:30PM. At that time their is only one front desk/receptionist handling multiple guests. ROOM: clean and tidy SWIMMING POOL: unsanitary, you could see dead floating insects and debris from palm trees. RESTAURANT: just so-so, no wow factor, less variety from their buffet and you only get free water as your drink. for a price of 1,200pesos, you can have more options from Yakimix or from Harrolds Hotel or any buffet in midtown or uptown ayala BEACH: dont even bother, the sand looks like its being quarry from other resort or town to blend with the black sand. WELL I REBOOK IT: hell no!

        The system and the staff are not the same.”
        The staff gives a misleading info that will benefit us so we grab it considering that info is reliable but however they charged us in the end. The system is clear but the staff are not or might be hiding some to mislead us and then we're charged? The staff should be a black and white towards the customers, as we are the one who will pay. The staff said that we can use also the Solea as they have the same management. When we went to Solea to use the pool, the staff keep following us and tell us that we cannot use the Solea pool since we stay in the sandbar. Only if we stay in Solea we can use the Sandbar amenities. At first i doubted on the reviews ive read but now I double conclude the negative reviews. There's an ocean but u are not allowed to swim. The sandbar view we can see in the site is not the same as the actual view.

        Think twice before coming here!”
        The amount that we've paid is not worth it! Elevators are not working?! We have to go through the stairs all the way to the 5th floor with small kids!!! They did not even bother to compensate the inconvenience that we experienced. Upon checking in, the Front Desk Staff was on the phone for too long not even acknowledging the guest, I think she can do some chitchat at the back office. The Airconditioning and the toilet flush is not working properly. The food is not bad. Overall experience is very disappointing considering we are locals how much more with other nationalities.

        a big disappointment........”
        The hotel is made by chinese investors and has extremely low quality, it does not reflect the standards i expected, basically the quality of the hotel construction and the details are very low quality and the price we had to pay was 5 times more as it was worth in real..... I stayed 2 nights, but had 3 rooms during this stay, they were not able to assign me a King Bed room as booked, the first one had twin beds and was next to construction works, since the hotel is not ready yet..... The second room was more quiet, but again twin beds, even when the reservation systems said it was King Bed... The third room was finally King bed (second night), but looked over the construction next to the building..... The safety box did not work and was not mounted into the cupboard, so everybody could take it easily.... the fire alarm system was not working, they still had the orange covers on the sensors, so officially you are not allowed to run a hotel without this safety devices running....... Several pools were not finished and under construction. The staff was friendly and did their best, but they admitted the hotel was bad quality and not ready at all...... but they pushed the opening..... The room was not clean at all, the dust and dirt from the construction was everywhere.... In total it could be a nice place to stay, but the overall quality of the hotel is very bad..... and does not meet any western standards you might expect with a Best Western Hotel! I cannot imagine how you can get this hotel in good shape the way the overall quality of the building is..... I will contact Agoda for a refund, also to protect other from choosing this hotel, they had prices like Shangri-La Mactan, but only quality of a 2 star budget hotel... The view from the hotel towards the pool area and the seaside can be nice when all is finally finished, but more for Korean and Chinese tourists i guess.

        Someday, perhaps this will be a decent resort. Right now it is absurdly overpriced and noisy. There is construction going on all over the place and at all hours of the day and night. They were pouring concrete at 0200!! Between that and Koreans checking out at 0300 and banging on doors, my GF and I got very little sleep the one night we stayed. It's a comfortable place with a couple of nice pools. In a few years or so.... who knows? I might eat my words here.

        Clean nice room, with nice view on garden and seaside ...
        When I checked in at New Year's Eve, I did not feel welcomed by the reception staff. The stay for one night included a mandatory New Year's Eve diner, price 240 euro... this was much too expensive for the simple buffet offered at the diner. The other guests did not enjoy that evening very much, because most of them left the garden diner before midnight. The music and singers did their best to give a nice New Year's Eve, but that is actually all I can say about positive experience ... I don't think I will stay in that hotel again.

        Good / attentive staff, quiet location and clean rooms.
        We had a great stay in this hotel. It was obviously a new hotel coz some areas in the property are not yet finished. But the room that we stayed was properly cleaned and staffs were attentive when we informed them that our bed is not balance and very shaky and requested for a higher floor. They responded immediately to our requests. Swimming pool is nice too but i believe that it is open to the public as well, would've been better if it is only exclusive to the hotel's guests to maintain privacy of their guests and the crowd in the pool since its not too big to accommodate many people. We didnt tried the beach coz its low tide when we went there. Breakfast should have more variety of foods. And wifi keeps on disconnecting when we were inside if the room. Overall i still enjoyed our stay in this hotel and would like to come back and recommend it to our friends.

        It was nice. The Hotel is a little remote, and there is only one shuttle per day. The Hotel itself is great, but, it is not easy to get transportation to and from the Hotel. If you are looking to stay at a Nice Hotel and relax, this is the place. They don't have any small store, so, you need to go shopping and stock up your room with snacks and drink.

        Newish hotel, clean and reasonably priced, restaurant is also reasonably priced but basic menu. Nice pool which is child friendly. Think there are about 60 rooms so the pool didn't get too crowded and that also accounts for my comment on the restaurant. In general a good 3star hotel and facilities for the price paid.
