This was one of the best places we stayed in the Philippines apart from the so called "Tropical Beach". The water was warm and murky and surrounded by concrete piers looking out to cargo ships. However the resort itself was gorgeous! After island hopping around Palawan, Coron and Cebu it was nice to just relax by the pool and enjoy...

We stayed here for just one night before a long haul flight home. We were really impressed with check in, as we got a welcome drink and also an upgrade to a better room. Our room was huge, over looking the pool and the bathroom was so clean and spacious. The only let down with the room was not having...

Daer kjrbeck33, What a wonderful compliment, thank you! How great it is to hear that ours was the best menu among the 7 hotels that you have tried. Our food is one of our greatest strengths. Majority of our rooms have bathtubs. There are guests though who prefer shower instead. Do visit us again soon to enjoy the sunny weather...

Dear Susan M, Thank you for staying with us. We regret to hear though that we did not meet your expectations as a lot of guests have raving reviews about our place. The seawall protects the sand on the beach and prevents coastal erosion. In the evening it serves as a relaxing promenade that guests enjoy. We have rooms with...

Great resort, unlike other resorts in mactan this one has a filipino touch with lots of plants beautifully landscaped through out the resort. Not very crowded which is good. They have enough sun loungers by the beach some are also under shaded areas. We had one of the superior cottages which was quite during our whole stay since it's located...

This resort has everything on offer the restaurant offers a huge range of food including vegetarian. The bar is modern and happy hour means more delicious cocktails. The hotel organises day trips at your request or you could just lounge by one of the 2 pools or private beach .
