Stumbled across this place by accident on Google when staying in another hotel in Tacloban.
I went by tricycle (1hr), but would say get a taxi will be there in half the time!
It looks like Palawan in places and is in a beautiful location. Apart from the resort there is nothing really to do but I stayed for 3 days and found it very relaxing.
There is a good clean swimming pool which the kids were never out of but they stay at the shallow end playing, so you can have a quiet relaxing swim and watch the sun go down.
We were in one of the ground floor family rooms which was perfect for popping in and out without having to go up down stairs or via reception.
We hired a two kayaks (pedalos were broken) and explored the bay which is stunning and you get a free tour by boat as part of your room rate if you don't fancy rowing yourself.
Restaurant was good and well stalked. the wee huts next to the beech are lovely for having your breakfast and meals, until the mosquitos come out at night and try to eat you. The rooms were nicely finished, cool and the air con worked well as did the TV, Shower etc.
The fish ponds kept the kids amused for a while as they fed them bread, and the beech has nice sand and tiny crabs for the kids to chase and make sand castles etc. There is a small manicured garden which is nice to look out at and go a wander round.
Overall very nice hotel, and made us very welcome, would be a romantic place if you went as a couple. I shall return as some point.
