Went there for an overnight stay . After the welcome drinks we got to check in. The veranda facing pool family room was spacious. Comfortable beds. AC just fine, it was scorching hot outside and I guess that will do. Toilet had poor exhaust but it has amenities and there is a bidet. Water amply provided but cable Cignal Tv was erratic. Wifi provision was really ok. What I liked is the beachfront availability, and the 2 pools , the older one and the infinity. Letdown was the restaurant though , they lost my spouses reservation , but we still had dinner there. . Breakfast was slow , but they should thoroughly consider making it a buffet set up since other resorts offer better morning meal choices. Staff are generally more of the good than the bad. Loved it when some of the housekeeping would say “Awesome morning “ !
What gets me excited is that they are constructing a huge hotel facing the ocean. The main lobby and the infinity pool is already being utilised. Views from many of the rooms promise to be fantastic. Now that is something “Awesome” to look forward to.

You can’t really beat the view here at sunset with the infinity pool. It’s lovely. The beach, the waves, and the water were all pretty nice too.

Service was good. Everyone was very friendly. My reservation came with free breakfast. There’s a set menu you choose from, but all the choices were good. I got the continental, there was a Filipino breakfast choice (rice, protein, egg), and other selections. I also ordered a salmon Benedict off the menu and the prices are very reasonable.

The room was ok, and could have been better. I felt like we were in the “old” section of the hotel that was renovated, seeing as the rest of the hotel was under construction. I couldn’t see the environment controls in the room very well since the display was too faint, so I didn’t know if the AC was on or if it was just the fan. This led to a very humid night since I couldn’t find a bathroom fan either, a tall window was propped open.

Overall a pleasant stay.

We are a group of Australian women who had a 5-night luxury getaway at this extremely comfortable, modern hotel sharing a three-bedroom apartment with balconies looking out to the sea.

The rooms and facilities are clean, spacious and well serviced. The staff are welcoming, polite and well trained. The restaurant has an excellent al a carte menu for lunch and dinner plus an extensive smorgasbord breakfast.

A fabulous view of the infinity pool and ocean greets you as you walk in the front door and the foyer café has a great selection of treats with hot and cold drinks.

We enjoyed many cocktails in the Sports Bar and relaxing daily in the pool.

The ocean is just a few steps away with warm water and when the surf is up, great for the keen surfers.

AND……….We highly recommend the inhouse massage by Rose and her team of experts to top off a memorable holiday.

I would like to commend the staff, they were so accommodating, warm and nice. Most especially, the receptionist named, Apple. She‘s so nice and very warm for welcoming us upon arrival.

Although, upon arrival we haven’t received any welcome drinks which is included in our package. And, I also paid for 5 persons but we’re only receiving 4 toiletries and 4 bottled water.

When it comes to food, a bit okay. I’ll be giving 3 stars for that. Menu and food must be improve. Dinakdakan is a must try!

When it comes to rooms, the Hotel rooms were clean and their air conditioner is perfectly working. However, their ROOMS were NOT SOUNDPROOF most specially, if your room was located near the poolside. Although, there are some things to be improve overall our experienced of staying here in the Hotel were Awesome. Thank you for the very accommodating staff we totally enjoyed our stay.

Suggestion:

try to extend the restaurant into the garden, if the guest/s will be allowed to have their lunch served in front of the beach it will be good view (lunch + beach view = 😍 only if the weather is good ha.) since the place is not crowded. And, the live band should also be located in the garden para mas masaya at madaming tao. Make the rooms near the poolside sound proof, please! And, also try to put up some spa services so we can avail it after a long tiring road trip.

I’m hoping for a well-improved facilities and food (menu) when we come back. Thank you.

Hotel has a strict no outside food and drinks policy. We were stopped by the guard who insisted we stop by the reception. Reception would not let us through even though we said we were going to pack the items into our luggages. How else were we to pack the food we bought into our luggage if we did not bring it up to the room?! Reception then called their manager, Joseph who came out looking very condescending. He took 1 look at us and then gestured in our faces while saying in mandarin 'nothing!' That was extremely rude! We may look Chinese but we are from Singapore and speak English perfectly well. We didn't ask a question, he came out, took one look and profiled us and said probably the only mandarin words he knew. He then stood there just staring down at us condescendingly. Since the incident, the receptionist seemed to be very free, staring at us each time we went in and out of the property as if she had nothing better to do. Hotel also charges a ridiculous corkage fee if you want to bring in drinks and snacks. How can you charge corkage when there is no one serving me the food and drinks that i have purchased? Will never stay here again.

First visit at the sports bar for a lovely sunset experience after being warned about higher prices to be expected from a local and from our four meals two were excellent and two were poor. The poor ones were the the Beef Salpicao and the Beef Rendang where the meat was not tender but tough and gristly and lacked authentic flavour. In contrast the shredded beef obviously was much better in the Thai Basil Beef (Pad Gra Prow) and the Pork Adobo Overload was great AND the meat was so tender and tasty. Perhaps could have had less belly fat for me but that’s the best part according to my wife. Drinks good.

Attracted by the live band music next door , we had traditional desserts at PM Final Option which set up for a nice walk back to base along the beautiful beach under a full moon.

ps Awesome - you should review having staff smoking in the bar when it’s primarily used by guests having dinner.

This was not our first choice when we planned the trip because of the bigger waves at hindi swimmable yung beach as others say, but it’s way, way better than that in San Fernando! This is indeed a 4-star hotel! 👍 👍 👍 👍 The beach is cleaner and safe to walk kahit bigger waves. But of course, mag-ingat pa rin kasi malakas talaga yung current.

We had a smooth checkin and everyone had a great time right away! 🙂 We love the spacious room, it’s cleanliness, good water pressure in the bathroom, plus those digital toilets hahaha! and even the food was great! 😀 Grateful the chef made a special meal for my son's favorites: nilaga and tinola. Sarap!

The pool is not heated but there’s a small jacuzzi area for those tito/tita/lolo/lola haha! Bitin kami so we’ll definitely go back!

Went here with friends for lunch but stayed a bit to look at the rooms. The food was good and the rooms are clean and honestly looked better than where we we're staying ( Aureo ). Getting here from the main highway was also easier. I'd rate this hotel higher but they need to seriously rename this resort. Try translating "awesome" or "sunset beach" to ilokano and they'll probably increase their online reservations ten-fold.

I found it to be overpriced but not worth its quality. The rooms were quite mediocre. To make matters worse, the food at the hotel was a letdown as well. I also tried the nasi goreng, it tasted very bland and didn't have any hint of peanut flavor as expected. I was very disappointed with the tasteless food. However, the concierge staff were very helpful during my stay and the pool was okay.
