The room I got was for backpackers - P800/night. It was a cute nipa hut, had a wall fan, no t&b, big bed, just 1 window. I like the resort because its very "native" plus it has a swimming pool, billboards table (free use) and free brekky with unlimited coffee and juice! But what I didn't like about is that the common CR wasn't cleaned regularly. And I didn't find a broom inside my nipa hut. Broom is necessary for keeping your hut clean and free from sand, right? And you couldn't find hotel staff anytime you needed them. I don't know why :(
You had to walk I think less than 10mins to get to bounty beach because this isn't beach front.
They offer diving lessons but I didn't try. Thought its expensive
You can stay here for practical reasons but don't expect 5star services. You get what you paid for. Okay for just 1 night.
