Dedon Island is an amazing place, words and our photos can not do this resort or the team justice.
It's was one of the best holidays we have had and was made so special by Morag, Matt and the team. The location is out of this world and the villas/grounds are simply stunning.
The pick up from the airport was superb with Ryan and James meeting us on arrival and whisking us off in a super Phillipino luxury mini bus. The ride to the resort is about 45 mins long and you certainly travel in style, as bus is fitted with Dedon sofas. We all enjoyed taking in the view and waving back to all the locals.
When we arrived at the resort everybody was there to welcome us at the entrance and we were shown straight to our rooms.No stressful check in!!! The villas have everything you need and the furnishings are very plush. Laundry is also included - no extra charge. Housekeeping was excellent.
The food was divine and we were overwhelmed by the variety and choice. It was all so fresh and full of flavor. They even catered special meals and snacks for our kids. We are all having croissant withdrawal symptoms - they were yummy and dough was from Paul bakery in France. Each mealtime we ate in a different area or table in resort.
The kids enjoyed making and eating the cookies. They also enjoyed Ernie the dog and loved both James and Ryan, who were just amazing with the kids. Every morning Our toddler is calling for Ernie. I think if we ever get a dog, he will have to be a male and we will have to name him Ernie. The garden swing, trampoline and all the games were a huge hit with the kids. Along with the kayaking in the mangrovesa and the swimming pool.
Sean made our day trips around the island very special. A major highlight was the rock pools at Pilar.....I mean it couldn't have got any better on that day. The other islands we visited had beautiful beaches with clear blue sea that was safe for kids to swim and also allowed the adults to do some snorkeling. The team brought beach chairs, snacks, drinks, towels, beach toys etc - everything was taken care off.
We had some lovely relaxing massages which you could have in the comfort of your own room.
The team at Dedon were very friendly and were genuine with their exceptional service. We have certainly been sharing our experience with our friends but I do have to say we would like to have kept it our secret. We will definitely be back.
