Let me first start off by saying this place is really nice. My husband and I loved it. Staff can not do enough for you. The hotel has free use of kayaks and even a motorbike. It’s in a wonderful, beautiful and picturesque location. The pool overlooks the ocean. Cottages are of a good size with all the amenities.
As noted, by others, the owner is there all day,but he is a non entity when it comes to customer service as noted above as the staff is at your beckon call. The food is good, but expensive Walk up to Ronaldo RestoBar, where food cost is literally about half as much as it is as Romantic Villas. The worst mango shake we ever had, repeat ever had, in the Philippines was at Romantic and cost twice as much as the nearby Ronaldo’s. My husband and I never said a word to them as they were so nice we did not want to upset them.
It is on beach, very nice for walking, not a big beach though and really no sand per se for sitting. It’s hard to pass some areas at high tide. Water is Boracay quality if not more beautiful and clearer. Pool is much smaller than the photos appear on the net, but still nice. Some cottages face the ocean.
We had power outages and the generator never came on a few times, but sure enough, the electric saws, grinders etc were turned on at 730 am, adding to the lack of power frustration for the rest of us. It seems the generator was used for the construction only. A staff member also told us they did not buy fuel.
The bed only has small cover sheets big enough to cover one person. This was very uncomfortable. The shower is open meaning everything in the CR gets wet when using it.
All and all, I can go on and on about how great the island is and in fact this place is wonderful, but the construction at 730 AM going all day was too much at times to handle. We were amazed that no one else who reviewed this place mentioned it. Wait till they have finished their new rooms, and then go enjoy or go now and ask for a discounted rate. My husband and I had a great time but the noise started to unnerve us. We will go back again though for sure after we get back from Norway.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The resort is located directly on the beach with white fabulously fine sand which runs into a shallow lagoon protected from the rough Pacific Ocean by a coral barrier. The turquoise water in the lagoon is crystal clear and can be as warm as 35°C so you may feel at times as if staying in a spa resort. We offer accommodation in spacious, nicely equipped and neat villa-like bungalows. All of them are provided with air-conditioning and powerful fans (selection possible), fridge, hot water shower, large veranda with an ocean view and a panoramic front sliding wall.Resort has a new infinity swimming pool with amazing view on Pacific Ocean. ... more less
