“Family Friendliness”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

Spent 3 nights in Sumilon last April 7-10 with my husband and our 2 kids. I must say this is really a good place to relax and recharge. The package we got included full board meals and the 3-course meal they served as part of it was super good. We love that secluded almost private beach at the far end of their beach facilities. We had the whole beach all to ourselves almost the whole day. The room we got was also nice. Simple and clean. The room service though took a while as our room was a bit far from the central pavilion. Given another chance, I will definitely go back.

The whaleshark diving area in Oslob is just a 10 minute boat ride away.

Sumilon Island which houses Sumilon Bluewater Resort is part of Oslob municpality, located in the southeastern part of Cebu, which is 2-3 hours travel from the city. Sumilon Bluwater Resort can also be accessed from Dumaguete city and a 20 min ferry ride to reach LILOAN port in Santander, and will bring you to Oslob town in 15 mins.

Spent my Christmas break con birthday in this beautiful, tranquil and relaxing place.
Indeed a respite from the busy city life in Manila.

There are a lot of activities you can do to rejuvenate yourself once here. You can go trekking the island for 45 mins depending on your pace see the lighthouse and enjoy a magnificent view of the mainland Cebu, Negros Oriental and Siquijor. You can also bask yourself to the shifting sandbar as you enjoy the clear waters around it. You may opt to to just soak in its infinity pool. A tour to whale shark watching should not be skipped. As you get the chance to swim and have a close encounter with the Gentle Giants. Cap this with an enchanting visit to Tumalog Falls where you will be enchanted by its natural beauty.

Facilities provided by the resort are at par with other high end resorts. Plus I get the chance to stay in their newly constructed one Bedroom villa.

Food overall is acceptable though can be greatly improved. If there is any downside, its inconsistency in their service, Front liners should be well trained. There is nothing that last but First impression. Its a good thing other staffs like my butler stepped up so I can forgive the front liners lapses.

Room Tip: If you Love space...Stay in the One bedroom Villa

We passed 2 nights at "Blue Water" in Sumilon Island.
"Deluxe" bedrooms are really large, tidy, clean, confortable, as the bathroom.
Staff was always available, smiling.
Choice of menu and drinks of the restaurant was a little bit light, but very well cooked.
The island was really nice, structures and activities proposed interesting.
A dive center was available with a pleasant staff, but the equipment was very old.
Dive spots were amazing !
One negative point : students landed for a day and took possession of the place, leaving no space and calm for residents.

Our family and friends were in Oslob and went on a day-trip to the resort. The fee was good for the boat transfer, buffet lunch, use of facilities (pool, beach, showers, changing rooms, mangrove kayak, trekking, snorkel gear, towels, life vest). Relaxing huts and cabanas! Beautiful sand bar! Service was excellent, staff was very friendly and helpful. A great place for a holiday. Lunch during day trip may be plate service if there aren't too any guests. Hope to go back and stay in the villas one day!

The sandbar itself is naturally enough for us to be amazed on how stunning the island of Sumilon is. The warm accommodation, well-appointed amenities and friendly staff are significant add ons to feel the convenience and luxury of staying in an island resort. Truly, Bluewater Sumilon Island Resort let us experience how to embrace the charm of island living. Our island getaway in Sumilon Island resort is a desirable prelude to summer, letting us feel that there are still a lot more of getaways to enjoy.
