“Good local food in waterfront setting”
Reviewed 11 April 2014 via mobile

Food was good in pleasant waterfront setting. Service was good and attentive.
Very reasonably priced for fresh local food.
Willing to make dishes not on menu, their special fried chicken was crispy and good.
Worth the stop if going by nice ocean breeze

Stayed April 2014, travelled with friends

We went here last weekend just to unwind from our busy schedule. I brought my family with me to enjoy. Below are my observation with this place. Not bad if you are not too picky with resorts and you just wanna enjoy with your family.

Pros:
* 1 hr drive from the cebu city
* Place is accessible as you can see the resort on the main road and you can even ride a PUV if you don't have private car
* Well trained and attentive staff
* Wide variety of food to chose from in the resto
* Well maintained gardens and a decent place to relax
* Not too expensive services eg massage, food
* Decent room and CR

Cons:
* Pool is a bit dirty and you can smell the strong scent of chlorine while swimming
* Place can be cramped up especially on weekdays since a lot of day trippers visits this place to take a dip and enjoy (much better to take a swim in the morning so it's not too overcrowded)
* They charge 10% if you want to eat and have your food served at your room
* Beach is nothing to be excited about. Not fully develop but still you can relax within the area.

Room Tip: tAke room away from the pool area as it can be quite noisy.

Room was really small with the smallest double bed on the market. If you're both large people, the Economy room beds are unlikely to be big enough.

The combined Shower room and toilet room was very small making it difficult to open and close the door. Plenty of dirt and a feather on the floor from where it hadn't been cleaned properly.

The gardens are well maintained and they do have a small private beach.

The restaurant customer service was poor with the lead waiter really sloppy and not interested in customers. Several items were not available on the menu. The coffee was terrible. My wife asked for the egg to be well cooked and the mess that came out would never have been served by a restaurant with any customer focus. They got 2 items wrong out of the six we ordered at breakfast. These staff really need customer training and if you eat there you ill probably need to be patient and understanding!

Now, as sun sets, we arrived in this resort. We were helped by the Concierge buddies even only with our hand-carry big bags and were greeted warmly by the staffs.My Family and I stayed for an overnight at Elsalvador. All the staff are very cordial and friendly. We stayed at Family room it is clean and spacious that will fit five to six people. Pool area is nice and well maintained by the Housekeeping. Kudos to the Front Desk Agent which are Paul and Chera who are very helpful.

Generally, this short but worthy 'staycation' has carved a curve in me. It was really remarkable. With the people I dealt in this resort, they extended a heartfelt hospitality. Me, my family will really come back in this haven






Would we go back?....Definately!

Stayed for 4 nights for work. Just to manage expectations, this resort cannot be compared to the 5-star resorts in Mactan. However, for a 3-star resort this is very good value for money.

The room we stayed in was big with a ref, flat screen TV, water kettle and a round dining table with 4 chairs and directly in front one of the pools. There was free wireless internet in the function rooms and in some areas of the resort.

There is no beach/shoreline. There are steps which lead to the clear water. They have 2 pools and a very small playground. They have a gym on top of their spa and their spa has 2 rooms and a couple's room. Spa rates very reasonable for a resort plus you get a 20% discount if you have your treatment in the spa rather than in your room. Again, spa service was unexpectedly good.

You have a choice to eat in their alfresco restaurant or in the well-manicured garden or under a tent facing the water. Food at the restaurant was good and very good value also. Glass of fresh pineapple juice was only P65!

The resort staff is their biggest and best asset. They were always ready to help and very accommodating even with last minute changes.

The only drawback is the resort's distance to Cebu downtown and if you book a car through the hotel, the cost is P1200 during the day for an hour's trip and an additional P200 in the evening. Taking a cab from Cebu will cost around P800 which is double the meter because the cab will have to travel empty back to Cebu.
