Definitely one of the nicest resorts I have visited in the Philippines. The accomodation is spread around the attractive gardens, together with games facilities and a swimming pool. The island location (easily reached by pump boat from San Carlos) creates a relaxing away-from-it-all atmosphere. Our deluxe room had no TV, reinforcing that feeling, but there is free wifi for those... More

The only down point is the beach area as it is surrounded by mangroves. We went for a swim in other area. Restaurant is good but... More

We took our friends here for a quick get-away and were not disappointed. The food and service were great. The rooms were comfortable. The setting was beautiful. We enjoyed relaxing in the hammocks, snorkeling among the corral and just resting on the porch.

My friends and I decided to have a quick escape from the city and enjoy basking in the summer sun and this place is a good recommendation. Personally, I might visit again in the future as the place is beautiful and so chill!

Horrible experience for my wife and family - Hotel does not want local guests they just want foreigners. European Management Rude, Racist and Sexist - Cash only accepted and nothing can be charged to hotel room. Although a beautiful place to visit - Not Filipino friendly !

If you want a totally relaxing time, then this is the place. Stefan and his staff will make you more than welcome and will really look after you. The resort is right on the coast, with Cebu on the horizon, with wonderful snorkelling and swimming. If this is too much, then just relax by the salt water swimming pool. The... More
