During a conference in Naga City, I stayed here overnight to try wakeboarding. It's a little far from Naga City, so if your hotel is there you might need to rent out a car or pay a hefty amount for taxi. I don't know if commuting is an option since it's also a long way from the complex entrance to the main hall. Luckily, I had car service when I was there.
Watersports: I tried out kneeboarding, the relatively more basic watersport in the complex. It does not require a lot of balance, but it does require a lot of upper body strength and stamina. Be prepared to ache those biceps and triceps. I moved on to wakeboarding and was surprised that it was the opposite, takes a lot of balance and little strength, and ended up falling several times. It helps if you have friends to laugh with when that happens. Falling off would mean you will have to walk again to the take-off area, so if you fell on the opposite side of the pond then that is a lot of walking under the sun. The fee is reasonable. The place is hot, and there are no trees around the boarding areas, so expect some sunburn. It would be best to bring along sunblock. I would recommend that you come here with full of energy.
Cabin: Checked in the main hall at around 6:00PM, took a little while (around 20-30 minutes) before I was shown the way to my cabin. And I was surprised at how far the cabins were from the main hall. I walked for about 200 meters to find my cabin, which was very cozy. AC, but the cable didn't work, with really clean and spacious toilet and bath. The cabins look identical, so you can easily lose your way to yours, just be sure to take note of your cabin number and find a path that you can take and memorize. At night, the ambiance was romantic, and serene, and air was cool. Too bad I was alone. But I would recommend it for couples or a family, who want to experience nature in a laid back and relaxed way.
