All the reviews about the resort itself is spot on. Full facilities, refurbished rooms (only in the main wing, ocean wing has older rooms but bigger in size), fully trained and super courteous staff. The room prices were very reasonable but be prepared for Philippine taxes! The food at Tides (buffet) was pretty bad, in my opinion, but both Italian and Chinese restaurants were good.
The beach was nice but the water was not as clear or abundant with sea life. Probably too many tourists have destroyed most of the shallow water corals. Consider bringing aqua shoes as the beach has many sharp rocks.
A good selection of pools to choose from but many are children oriented, my kids enjoyed the mini water park with sprinklers and slides but it does get really loud with families. I would say the cleanliness of the pool waters are questionable.
The Adventure Zone (kids club) is a good option to park your kids incase you need a bit of quiet time. That was a plus.
Overall, great resort with clean, new rooms, lots of great entertainment for the kids but food was average.
