Decided on booking the expensive villa/casita (around $280/night) for our wedding anniversary. We requested for the farthest casita from the main area to get a corner view and to have the quietest holiday as much as possible.
It was a joy. The casita was awesome. It was huge and had a really huge soft bed. And the bathroom was huge too, with complete amenities, his and hers sink, and a nice tub with a separate shower area. The balcony was amazing as the casita sits right on the beachfront (you would even think the villa would just decide to sail away).
We did not bother to explore the place nor go swimming. The beach was a bit rocky and the infinity pool was far from our place. All we wanted to do was to laze away all day and night in the villa doing nothing. All I did was lie down on the minibeds out on the balcony, with an iPod and mini speaker, and just stared out into the sea, with jazz music, the waves and water ripples playing in the background. Just heavenly and perfect. We availed of room service and had all our meals out in the balcony.
Downside: Food was utterly disappointing. Been reading some posts here saying the same thing. They seriously need to replace their head chef and menu right away.
Another downside was the massage service. Coming with an P850 price tag, one would expect a very unique massage. But sorry, there was nothing different about it. I could get the same kind of massage for less than half the price in Manila.
Overall, I would say the casita was totally a joy to stay in.Would make sure to stay there again.
