We had a wonderful stay at this resort. The place is so nice and very clean. The waiters/staffs are all attentive, friendly and accommodating.
We arrived before lunch and wasn't really expecting that they will allow us to check-in early (I read that check-in is strictly at 2pm). The lady attendant got all our things and proceeded to the cabana assigned to us. We can't help but admire the place...our room is so nice, very spacious.
Only complaint of my son is the TV cable, reception is not that good.
Food is delicious. No need to bring in food because their food is affordable. Price of breakfast ranges from Php150-170 only, it includes garlic rice and egg. Lunch ala carte price ranges Php150-250. Mango shake Php60.00only. Try their special halohalo which costs Php120.00 (it's yummy). Mineral water is P26.oo.
When I read the comments here, I pictured the owner as the bad guy, masungit but I was wrong. He welcomed us when we got there and he even saw the big mineral water that we brought. My aunt even offered to just pay for corkage and leave our pasalubongs like langka yema, durian candy (coz that's what we read here that he's rude and all) but he politely said, "no need, it's okay."
During our stay, I even asked the manang waitress (my bad i didn't ask her name) who attended to us if the owner is really rude and if the owner knows that other people are bashing him, saying negative comments about him. She said, that the owner is aware but he just shrugs it off. What is important is he is very nice to his employees...he treats them well.
