Top Resort”

We arrived at the resort around 8:30 am and was given welcome drinks as we checked in. Upon inquiry the front desk personnel gave us a number for their Islas de Gigantes tour tie up. When we got back around 4pm we took a golf cart driven by their staff going to our cabin and was impressed by the facilities around the resort. Walked down to the pool and beach area and found the place very pleasant. Pool water was warm and calming. Dinner came and we scanned the menu and found it very affordable. We then booked a massage for 2 and was very happy and satisfied with our therapists. I would recommend this resort to my friends and would love to come back again in the near future.

The best hotel in the area”

We explored Isla de Gigantes in northern Iloilo and this is the only decent hotel in the area. Staff in the restaurant is excellent. Booked the island hopping tour with the hotel and they provided an excellent guide. However, due to some unknown reasons the front desk failed to arrange the return transport in a timely fashion and we have to wait for an hour at the port. Aside from this, the hotel is great.

One of the Best”

The place is very quiet and relaxing. Everything that you need for an ideal vacation is in Solina. All staff are very friendly. Rooms, pool, restaurant, surrounding - everything are clean. I love their pool jacuzzi. Their hawaiian pizza is the best i have tasted so far because tje mozzarella cheese is sooo generous. Trees and plants are all over. Room rates are very reasonable vis a vis the amenities and service. They are using metal straw for their drinks in the restaurant which is good for the environment. Staying in Solina will complete your Gigantes Island getaway. Highly recommended. The long travel from Manila is worth it.

Nice stay”

Overall, we had a good time at Solina. Phone signal is a little scarce. Data is close to zero. Good thing there's wifi at the restaurant. It's not really a big deal though. Room is great. Bed, pillows, and blanket were comfy. It's not far from the city. An overnight stay is enough to relax and unplug.

The resort is a nice jump off if you would like to see the Giganted Islands. You can experience glamping in this resort and you would still feel very much comfortable while connecting with nature.

One of the best in Carles, Iloilo”

Pros: Nice and unique design/ Clean rooms; Love the Architecture; Most of the staff are friendly and accommodating (except for: see cons) esp the gentleman who showed us to our room upon arrival, he welcomed us warmly. Transport around the location is prompt and very convenient. Cons: While I was waiting patiently for my room key in the restaurant lobby, I decided to go directly in the counter rather than raising my hand for the menu, to order refreshment, the female restaurant desk officer was the only one who notice me and asked me "How can I help you ma'am?". I asked if there are available drinks

Good for one time visit only”

The location is very good because it is only a few minutes away from the port going to Gigantes. Rooms are very comfortable especially the villas. The cabin though much smaller is a very good value for money. All the staff in the dining area were nice (except for one named Rodney). Housekeeping service is very, very, very slow, we had to call at least 3 times whenever we requested for something. The biggest deterrent for me to recommend this place (especially for the out of own visitors who do not have immediate access to a vehicle) would be the quality of the food. We stayed for 3 nights and tried almost half of the dishes on the menu but found 95% of the food lacking in taste. At the most though, a one night stay is more than enough (that is if you want to stay overnight in the Carles area to be closer to the Gigantes islands)

Nice resort if touring Islas de Gigantes”

Nice family friendly resort. We visited during holy week and they can improve more on management of anticipated guests, as they seem to be rattled in the restaurant. Food took a long wait, only to be told it's no longer available. Rooms are nice, but the bathroom tends to absorb so much heat during the day because of the sun roof. Overall still a nice place to retreat from city life.

The resort is clean and staffs are approachable. The swimming pool is big enough and it even has kiddie pool. The restaurant serves faster. The buffet breakfast is okay. nothing fancy. The rooms (pods) are surprisingly small for its price. The AC is cold which is very important due to the hot weather. there are few insects esp during our dinner but overall the resort is great and recommendable to stay.

Great front desk staff but restaurant personnel should improve. Also, it’s ok for the room and the breakfast to be a bit pricey but make sure you refill your breakfast menu while it is still breakfast service time, we are on vacation so we would like to wake up a bit late but when we took our breakfast at 9am, no more food in most of the containers and sadly no more refill also... considering 10am is the cut-off.

Great for Families and Big Groups”

We stayed as a group of 8 with 4 people staying per room. Each “Kamalig” room was set up as a large tent with an AC. It was fixed with four single beds and a bathroom. It was in a respectable set-up. It had a nice out-doorsy feel to it. The resort was quite big and golf carts were necessary to transport the guests from one area to another. The food is not too good, but most resort food taste basic. So there’s no surprise there. The staff is incredibly friendly. This is on top of the fact that the Ilonggos are known to be very courteous and “malambing”. They have snorkelling activities and a beautiful home reef which you can enjoy by booking through their front desk a day in advance. It will require a 5-minute boat ride from their beach.
