    Fabulous

    The staff were superb, efficient and very friendly and keen to please. The location is superb, with fantastic scenery and good waters for Booked.neting and water sports. The trips on offer look superb and I will definitely return to take advantage of them.

    Only being there for one night I can report that I enjoyed every aspect of the resort. Perhaps if I was there for longer than a week it might need a little more to offer.

    Superb

    Excellent staff and offsite excursions.

    While buffet was plentiful the choices were limited and became monotonous over time

    Superb

    This resort has a wonderful location that feels quite remote. The rooms are large and comfortable. I believe they all have air conditioning. The pool, bar on the pier and spa services make it a great place to hang out.

    The reef at the end of the dock is nice, but not as well preserved as others. A friend with whom we were travelling found it challenging to make arrangements for diving. It sounds like there were not many other divers at this resort so they had a hard time putting together groups to reduce costs.

    Superb

    Great, idyllic, quiet location. Very effective and flexible hotel management. Cute and clean pool. Privacy (in the "casa" rooms). In general, it's a great place to relax and you can rest assured that management will take care of what you need.

    Wifi is supposedly available in the restaurant, but during our 5-day-stay it only worked twice (for a couple of hours). I was prepared for this after having read similar reviews, but it's still a very irritating fact, especially for the price one pays to stay here. Also, not all of the staff are polite, especially "security", who don't even respond to a simple "hello" (this is not terrible, but high prices bring high expectations).

    Very good

    Local feel of the resort within a natural environment - day trips gave the opportunity to really appreciate the area. The resort was quiet and peaceful, and there were plenty of places to settle for the day with a book with relative privacy. Staff were accomodating and food was enjoyable.

    Additional cost to use watersports equipment and poor condition of other leisure options ie billards table and board games. Cost of watersports equipment and food was on par with advanced western countries but not comparable at all with the general prices in The Philipinnes.

    Really good place, safe, friendly staff, good food, a bit expansive for Philippines, but anyway - really good experience. Good excursion around Coron island.

    The staffs are friendly accomodating and the beach is very accessible.

    No in room tv and house phone, mouse at the restaurant area and sometime can't find the attending staff at the reception.

    Good

    The food is really good. The location is beautiful.

    The food is really good. The location is beautiful. Prices of offered activities exceed the value ; same for the alcohol. We also experienced some ''cleanliness'' issues : once, they gave us drinking water that smell like shit, we also found pooh on the table and they only wiped it with a toilet paper (not been cleaned and sanitezed). For that kind of luxury resort, it is not acceptable.
