We very much enjoyed our dinner there and the spa was amazing. A little pricy for the area, but worth it.

This is only a restaurant review. Wanted to stay, but was fully booked in advance. Bar and restaurant deck overlooks sae and Cadlao Island, so nice sunsets. Menu is varies and interesting and portions bid and quality good. Drinks, especially wine, are reasonable for the location. Go there when you want a nice meal in a quiet and picturesque setting.

Delicious food and the staff was really friendly. They were also grateful for us wanting to eat there even though we were not guests of the resort, so no... More

Stayed 3 nights. Staff are excellent. Food we had in restaurant is some of the best filipino food we've had. Lovely stay and would come back. Lovely setting and location. We had Swedish massages they were not great.

Great food and a lovely restaurant. A little hard to find – our trike dropped us off about 7 mins from the restaurant because to drive here required tight and rocky paths – but this was fine, we were happy to walk. After experiencing a few days of not so good food in El Nido – we were ecstatic to... More

Food was good but expensive, the drinks were very over priced. Would recommend somewhere cheaper in Corong Corong for same quality, better beach and quieter and cleaner area.

We were just there from December 19-22 last month .. I would say that we had a great time. It was a little bit pricey but everything is pricey nowadays . I mean if you want a nice, decent , quiet place to stay, you have to pay the price. The resort is clean, they keep it clean, I mean... More
