After researching for a decent beach resort, I came across Oceana Beach Resort. The general manager, Jenny, was SO helpful from beginning to end. I had a group of 11 people that I needed to take care of and Jenny really helped me to transport all of us from Manila to their place with ease. She also upgraded our whole group from the garden cottages to the beachfront ones for FREE! So let me break down the different things:
Service: Service did not waver one bit even though it was just the 11 of us at the resort. The personalized attention and hospitality of ALL the workers was amazing. The owner, Peter, was also around to make us feel at home. Our rooms were cleaned on the second day, and although the toiletries (shampoo and toilet paper) weren't restocked, they were promptly given when I asked for them at the front.
Location: This place is away from the loud, touristy White Beach area. You should definitely come here if you are looking for a quiet, secluded place away from vendors and loud music. It's a small island so it's not far from White Beach if you want to go for the day.
Rooms: The beachfront cottages were really clean and simple. The towels were so big and fluffy and there was HOT water! The little balcony was awesome to sit, relax, and stare at the ocean, which was a stone's throw away.
Food: AWESOME! Can't go wrong with anything they serve. Try the icy, corn drink. I'm not sure what was in it, but it was so good.
Grounds & equipment: Beautifully landscaped. You'll see occasional frogs jumping around. The pool was fun. They only had 1 usable kayak at the time which was fun, but it would've been nice if they had more because we had a group of 11.
All in all, I would definitely come back to this place if I ever go back to the Philippines. The location, service, PRICE and people were just so great. Thanks Oceana for a wonderful time!
