Moneys worth in terms of accomodation and meals. The place was pretty well kept compared to resorts in the area. The only turn off was the amount of floating garbage along the coast. Would have been great if there was a pool.

I've come back to this place a couple of times over the years. It's a nice, quiet and relaxed place that is never crowded. I really appreciate the food (I always look forward to the soup after diving!) and truly enjoy the view of the sunset. The spotter/guide is quite good and on one dive, I was able to tick... More

Thank you for taking the time to providing us with some valuable feedback. Indeed we are fortunate to have a very wide beachfront (about 2,000 sq m beachfront) providing each guest with lots of private and uncrowded space to hang around and dine. We are glad our dive guide/spotter helped you find 2 critters in your wish list. We hope... More

A wonderful to be: Oversee the sea at sunset, enjoy dives immaculate and rest superior - what a great place to have been to! Aside from great rooms, there is a wonderful terrace, loungers on the terrace and a great dining area - an offer of superb food to top te feeling of being welcome.

The resort has potential but misses on service and the food. The resort could probably use a facelift as well. The all inclusive concept and buffet style eating is not my thing and quality of ingredients sub par. It has a nice location and nice view but really value for money is not there.

Overall not great value for the money... but more specifically on our diving experience: -Dive 'guide' (could not remember his own dive master number) never asked our certification level; -Dive 'guide' did not interact much with us and check on how dive went during surface interval; -Equipment was very old and not great quality and depth guage did not work;...

We made it last weekend to the resort, stayed 2 days and enjoyed it the whole time. The place is cozy and homey. The food, while prepared with absolute simplicity, always tasted very good and provided good nutritional balance with a selection of local vegetables and fruits always available at the table. The room we stayed in was aptly spaced,... More

Food was good but the over-all efficiency of the staff was lacking. No one helped us with our baggages when we cheked out (it was 200+ steps going up the parking!). The guard had to go all the way down to get them; and we were the only guests at that time. It's as if they didn't mind our presence.... More

Staffs are attentive although not everyone can speak English. They are always smiling and made us feel very welcome. When we check out at 4am in the morning, they actually prepared us yummy sandwiches to eat during our journey. During rainy days, they sent us umbrella so that we don't get wet on our way to the dining area. We... More

First off, for those who love to lay on the beach, on soft, white and fine sand, the Boracay "type" of people who wants to party and show off their bikinis and perfect bodies while perpetually posing for selfies, this resort is not for you, so move on to another location. I stayed there overnight with the family. We arrived... More

“Ask for a room with no tuko! Ours had one and we were kept awake by it! Though we wouldn't have minded it had the service been more attentive because we know it's unavoidable and we wouldn't want them to kill the poor creature.”
