POSITIVES: Beautiful, uniquely designed property and spacious very generous suites, feels like you are staying in a house. GINORMOUS bathroom and balcony :-). Breakfast service was adequate with a good mix of international/western dishes with your staple Filipino "power breakfast" favorites! Ate dinner at the facility for two out of the three nights, and ate at a resto in Station 2 beach are near D Mall. It is kind of a ways from the main tourist areas which is good and bad, but there is a frequent shuttle bus that goes to and from that is exclusive to Asya guests. If you want to come and go as you please, there are tricycle taxis which I recommend riding at least once during your stay. You can also walk to the DMall/Station 2 area via the beach, but it's a good hike, maybe 30-60 min depending on your pace. Service and courtesy with a smile/greeting everywhere you go on the property. NOTE: There is some construction in the area as they are building more units, but is in no way intrusive of your overall experience.
NEGATIVES: Not too many, but just nitpicking here. The breakfast service we had daily was a little inconsistent, on some days our servers were spot on and on a few occasions, not as attentive, For example most of my table's glasses of water were empty, and no attempt to refill until one of the servers had to be nudged by a supervisor to refill our glasses. I know it's a small detail, but at a resort where good money is being spent, you would expect this. And there was the occasional banter/chit chat behind the counter and laughing which one can construe as unprofessional.
Overall, a great experience and facility, recommend for honeymoon or anniversary couples or families with older children, probably at least 8-10 years old. It's not quite "kiddy enough" and more for the mature crowd as it has no activity center/daycare for kids. There is a decent exercise room with 2 treadmills, 1 elliptical machine, a rack with several dumbbells and a bench/mat area. It would have been nice if the gym room had a view of the ocean (it would be nice if they included moving the fitness center to get a view like this along with their new construction plans).
Miscellaneous note for travelling: I don't recommending flying via Calibo airport. It's a long ride from there to the resort. You will want to fly into and out of Caticlan (trust me). Cebu Pacific seems to have the most consistent service. PAL Express is mixed (that's another story).
