This is my second time to stay in this beach resort. I've been here last feb 2002 for our annual assembly of our coop. Nothing has change on the facilities and amenities. It's been 12 years and no improvement, nothing new to entice guest to come back again. The complimentary set breakfast was tasteless. The room was so spacious but... More

Hotel food was very good. Staff was great. Our unit was overlooking beach, 10 steps from water. Very quiet. Bathroom had natural grotto rocks. Was interesting. Room furnished simply. Wifi worked better near lobby, not too well in room.

Been here for quite several times already but up to now, for me its still worth coming back. Its a great place to relax and unwind with friends and family. Everything is great: food, place and staff. I'm glad Medina has this gem in their place.

We loved the place then, and still we love then now.... We were hesitant to come back at first because of the not so impressive reviews we read here on tripadvisor.. But we were suprised upon arriving that its still the same old place, although we noticed minimal changes, it didnt deter us and the kids from spending 1 night... More

This is the 3rd time my family has visited the resort. And definitely not impressive & could be the last. To start with, the room bed sheets were not as clean as you expect it to be. Unlike the first time, it smelled fresh and clean. The electric fan was broken & we had to ask for a replacement, being... More

I have visited the place several times, but got to stay overnight just recently. These are my observations: A) the white sand is now mixed with plenty of black; B) am still amazed by the view of the sunrise & sunsets; C) food and accommodation seemed overpriced; D) a lot of rooms to choose from -- from expensive villas to...

This was my 2nd time here but I enjoyed more our latest visit. It was a company outing of my husband and families were also invited. More than anything I love the beach. It was perhaps of the timing of a very good weather and not so crowded that time. The sea water is warm not so salty. You can... More

I brought a team of 24 ministers from Manila to conduct a Worship seminar for three days in Gingoog City. The schedule was very tight but the results were overwhelming.
