“"First Time Luxury Experience with a Wedding Proposal"”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

My girlfriend (my fiancee now) and I booked for 4d3n stay in this wonderful hotel. It is our first time to have a luxury trip. That's why I made this trip very special and my girlfriend did not know what was coming. What I love in this hotel is they accomodated my request for assistance in my wedding proposal. Thanks to Ms. Celean Ortega for arranging everything for us.

As for the review, I strongly recommend to book a long stay here so that guests can really experience the great services offered by the hotel. Staffs are courteous, they always great you with a smile. As for us, they keep greeting us congratulations because of our engagement. Foods are well-presented and very appetizing. The serving is big that one rice meal can be split into two. If you cannot consume everything in one seating, just have it take-out and request to reheat it on your next meal. We love the breakfast buffet. You can choose from breads, salads, fruits, cereals, rice meals, siopao and siomai, cold and hot drinks, and etc. Rooms are spacious. Housekeeping always do a good job in keeping our room clean. View from the veranda is relaxing. You can just sit, relax and have a perfect view of the sea. We travel by commuting and we recommend to book an advance ticket in Partas to experience a Deluxe Bus. This type of buses have a lazy boy type of seats which makes travelling really comfortable. This trip has less stops and travels thru NLex, SCTex and TPLex which makes travel time faster. We left Cubao at around 11PM and reached the hotel at 5AM. Lastly, for couples who will celebrate something special in this hotel, I recommend you avail of romantic dinner package. You will be having dinner in a cabana with love songs in the background. Dinner includes a wine and a complete meal from soup, salad, steak and dessert.

For travellers who want to experience a luxurious vacation, I recommend this hotel. The hotel might be a bit pricey but the experience is well worth.

if you want to try something new aside from the usual batangas beach resorts, this is a perfect spot. it's not crowded and it's good for the ultimate relaxation. this place is perfect for sight seeing, beach is not good for swimming but it's okay because we didn't intend to swim in the first place.

everyday you'll hear the hotel staff ringing the doorbell for room service. complimentary bottled water is replenished everyday and it comes with some hershey's kisses.

bed & pillows are uber soft so i had a great time sleeping. the huge unused space in the bathroom should be changed to something more useful.

buffet breakfast is just okay. hotel staff are courteous. kudos!

Pros: nice view & exterior of the resort, additional 2 bottles of water & 4 kisses chocolate in the evening.

Cons: no duvets in the room, unlike what is shown on their website, proper swimwear not enforced in the swimming pool which gave the resort a poor image, poor quality of towels in the room, no hand towels or wash cloth, broken tv remote, broken outlet near the bed, rain shower in bathroom is leaking on the sides, lack of organization in buffet breakfast & guests have to search for tables where they can just put some extra tables & chairs to accommodate all guests, slow service during breakfast, poor quality of breakfast.

I expected more but I was disappointed. I will not recommend it to others unless they will improve their service & food.

We visited this place for a quick lunch and tour of the area.

It's a long 5-6 hour drive from Manila given the numerous ongoing road construction works. When we finally got there, we found the view breathtaking and worth the trip.

Unfortunately, I didn't like the overall design and implementation. I feel that the developer could have made this more luxurious taking advantage of its great location.

We ate lunch at Olive's Restaurant. Ordered pizza and pasta. The pizza is average. The pasta lacks salt and pepper. The food was underwhelming and overpriced. They should improve on this further. However, service in the restaurant is very good.

This is where I greatly recommend everyone looking for a truly gateway paradise. The infinite view of sea and the stunning sunset view atop a cliff adds to the perfect astounding view of the horizon and beyond.
A very romantic and breathtaking place to honeymooners. The restaurant offers superb foods worth the price.
All I can say positively reflected my enjoyable stay.
All thumbs up.

Room Tip: Choose a room on ocean view
