We recently stayed here for four days/three nights (Aug 2018). The entire experience was to die for. The roads around Busuanga are really bumpy, mostly due to rain. But once we go to the resort from the airport, everything just melted away. Jen, the front desk manager, checked us in, and went over our activities, which we booked as part of our all-inclusive package. I had chosen to dive three dives on one day, and my wife and I went on the city tour and the island hopping tour on the third day. There were only about 10 people in the resort the first and second day, and we had the place to ourselves the third day.
The rooms are spacious. Some of them are individual, and they have three buildings with four rooms each. We had the last one on the last building. It was comfortable, with two beds downstairs and one up in a loft. I only climbed the ladder to look at the loft, but it looks comfortable. We slept in one bed and used the other for our luggage, as well as the luggage rack. The room gets cool quickly, and you can turn down the air conditioner. I actually turned it off two nights. TV was good, but we were out and about most of the time.
Our meals were part of the plan, and all we needed to do was tell them any dietary restrictions and what time we wanted to eat. Food was excellent-the chef goes to market every day to choose the meals for meal-plan diners. There is an a la carte menu as well. We always had plenty to eat. The wait staff is always smiling and helpful. There's this huge root ball from a hundred year old tree that was knocked down by Typhoon Hiyan, which is the base of a table. The only issue with the outdoor dining was the attracted flies, but it's nature, you know? Food was simple, tasty, and hot. Desserts were fruit. The owner is from Pampanga, which is a region known for its great cooks.
All our activities were private. The van took us to town for our city tour, which included a natural salt water hot spring, and a hike up a tall hill (720 steps), and the rest of it was just a ride around town. The town seems kind of crowded, but at the same time it sprawls all around the south coast of the island. I believe that, had there been more people doing the same tour, we would have all been in the same van, but since there was just us, it was only us. I was booked to dive with Sea Dive Resort, which is a resort in its own rite, but didn't look very impressive. The dive boat and crew were excellent, and there were only myself and one other diver. We wanted to see corals and sea life, so we didn't do the wrecks. The third day, my wife and I did the island hopping tour, again, it was just the two of us. Again, I think that, had there been more of us doing the same tour, there would have been more on the boat, but we got such great service. The guide, Albert, from the resort, pulled my wife around the reefs as I snorkeled, a very nice touch. We were grateful for the crew and the guide from the resort.
I would say this is the best resort I saw on this island. All the places in town don't look so nice as this one. The owner takes pride in her grounds and the bungalows, and obviously takes care of her staff. The wifi doesn't work in the room, you have to be outside or in the dining pavilion.
