750 PHP you have to pay for a transfer to that nice island. It takes about 15 min to get there. But at the island you have nothing except a beach of 50 m left side and 50 m right side and a nice view from the rocks. The further way is private and costs about 2.000 PHP extra. Toilet costs 20 extra. For a 5 hours tour to the islands and a free lunch you pay on Boracay 600 PHP. So that price is not worth to pay.
It was good experience, I suggest you go there in weekdays if you really want the exclusivity of the island and you can go overnight coz you can do all things in one day because its not to big of a place, View is nice and the hidden beach is pretty okay. Food is nice also.
This is a beautiful Island. Now we didn't stay at the resort but traveled to the beach on Sumilo Island. I can tell you it's incredible. The waters of the ocean are breathtaking. You catch a small vessel across to the island. Then you have plenty of time to swim and enjoy the beach. Now be careful about the weather and how hot it gets. There is shade close to the beach. But it's limited. Above the beach is places to relax and sit in the shade. Food is allowed but not on the beach. Worth the ride out to discover something new.
I booked this resort because of the location and expectation it would be quiet and blissful. I was aware that the sandbar gets day trippers but did not realise that the hotel also allows (for a fee) day visitors to use the pool and hotel facilities. Oh my what an awful, loud, overcrowded place this is. The weekends are worse. I cut my stay short and I left after 24 hours as I could not handle it. It was dreadful. The island is incredible and the water Cristal clear but you can not get a sun lounger by the pool neither can you relax. This for me is also a huge security risk because you can not leave anything lying around due to potential theft. I really despise hotels that allow day visitors. I have stayed at a few and promptly left. It takes away the point on staying for a premium in such a resort when anyone can use the facilities. Sumilon is very pretty so clear people will take advantage. Just stay on the mainland and get the first boat across in the morning. More in general. The rooms are nice and well appointed. Privacy is an issue as most rooms open up on to the sea which is amazing view wise but the main path walks by the front of your room. The food is dreadful and I got a very bad stomach after eating in the hotel and still suffering 3 days later. They also run out of favourites (probably due to day visitors) the menu is extremely limited. The final warning. For anyone who is mobility restricted should avoid as well. Very steep stairs. I regretted booking this property. If you want to visit Sumilon do a day trip.…
Sumilon Island Blue water resort is overrated and the boat feels not safe for kids and old people. We paid P11,800 for 12 adults and 3 kids . We were told that 9k+ will be consumable for food and drinks. Upon arriving we were advised that it’s a buffet style instead of ala carte order. We were disappointed because the menu was not even Cebu’s famous dish. No seafood, no menu for kids and there was no variety options for drinks. Multiple saucy viands were on the table which were meagre and subclass for a resort that caters local and international visitors. Skipping this from your itinerary is highly recommended. This island will just waste your time and money.
My family spent our Christmas for 3 days including Christmas eve. I would like to thanks the management of bluewater resort for showing Hospitality at its best even if we were the only guests in the island. They never abandoned us, Superb services, Very hard working crew, even during difficult times and holidays. And most of all, I would like to mention and thanks and commend Mr. Arnel Barreta and chef Rex Firmalino for giving us a superb services and professionalism and specially spending Christmas with us in the island. They deserve commendation. Good job guys. Regards from my family.
Went to Sumilon last March of 2019 for a day tour. The experience was great. They have an exclusive parking area for your car. Going to the island was about 15 minutes boat ride. Clean place, safe lockers, fresh towels, clean shower area. We also enjoyed pedal boating. I really wished we could have stayed longer. Will definitely be back soon with my family.
No escape, you have to eat the expensive food there. worst place ever, overpriced, bottle water cost 200.- !! food not good, service bad, we book including breakfast and dinner, they cheating us, on check out we have to pay for all extra 3300.- the rooms is really dirty the minibar they offer on booking same like the dinner and breakfast simple empty, staff not helpful! stay away you get much better Place for this big amount of money!!
My visit to this island started with bad impressions, but as I arrived and as the days of my stay passed I realized I was so wrong. Everything was great! If you are a hardworking person with duties in the head 24/7, this is the right place for you. A moment to actually be with yourself in a place of wonder. The service here is exceptional as is the food. And the beach- a few paddles from the shore you can already witness a well-maintained reef environment with all sorts of marine animals. This was a time of great memoir for me!
100% sure that my money was intact inside my wallet before I went to sleep; I was counting and separating bills for payment the next day. I even went to the Front Desk to have my Php 1,000.00 bill in smaller bills. When we woke up the next day, since the restaurant does not serve breakfast until 7AM, we went for a swim and came back to the room to find that some cash was missing. The Front Desk and management were very dismissive of my concern, and I had to request to review the CCTV (active word "had", they did not bother to offer to do it) and even requested for them to do a room search to prove that I was not making this up. All they did were "interviews" with very deflective and victim blaming questions such as "Did you just leave your things in the room?", "Why did you not bring it with you?". The mood while staying in a resort should be a relaxed one; they should not expect people to be on edge and on their toes should they lose items INSIDE THEIR OWN ROOMS!!! The Front Desk Agent even had the nerve to tell me to kindly vacate the room as it was already the standard check out time. Mind you, we had no intention of staying a minute longer in that resort but to have the room vacated while there was an ongoing investigation? I'm not sure what standards they follow, if they even have one. They reviewed the CCTV and found that no one came in and out of our room. My point was the entry levels on the side and fronting our rooms were not covered by CCTV, but they just shrugged it as "all their staff are honest". I could not complain in detail as the boat was already leaving and they were pressuring us to board it. All I can say is you have a thief in your staff and one of these days you will be caught! Aside from the ridiculously priced food (pricier than even Crimson Mactan and JPark) and underwhelming facilities and room (in dire need of renovation), nothing from this stay was worth it. Any of you thinking of booking this resort, think again! The photos they show on social media and on their website are seriously outdated. NEVER AGAIN!!!!!…
