I went to Dumaguette primarily for a getaway and to indulge in my favourite past time- snorkeling. My plan was to visit Apo Island to see the turtles. First, after searching the net for possible boat companies, I was not convinced about the quality of services available. But KAVs arranged Aqua Dive and wow....it was fantastic from the word go. Resort pickup, all snorkel and dive gear provided, lunch prepared in a generous tupperware box and boat crew who were amazingly helpful. But KAVS itself was a real getaway. The only fault... but not really a fault...is that its at least 35 min by bus from the city. But the bonus is that it has that secluded feeling, nice beach, great pool and great home-made beer ( i think the owner is dutch or German). Rooms were super clean and cosy. Food at the restaurant was reasonably priced and very tasty. Will I go back? Yes, in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Any room is great. Rooms look like bungalows with their own verandah.

We really enjoyed our stay at this quiet beach resort away from the city. Enjoyed the swim at the pool. Rooms are cleaned everyday and very tidy. Staff was incredibly nice and pleasant to talk to. Food is great too. I enjoyed my pancake breakfast with pineapple juice. We just walked at the beach in the evening. This resort is quite far from the city so you will need a bus or jeepney. We stayed here for 4 days and really had a relaxing time. Suitable for couples :)

Oh yes u can bring your own shower cap if you like and also small red ants so avoid keeping sweet stuff in your room.

We stayed 5 nights at Kav's Beach Resort which is 28 kilometres from Dumaguete city...too far from everywhere (I didn't know this when I booked our villa). It's a nice little resort with 7 villas and 1 shared dormitory. Our room was small but clean, cosy and comfortable. The room was made up everyday and they gave us 2 bottles of water each day. Towels were clean. They gave us only one very small bar of soap and one small tube of shampoo. We took our own soap and everything else so it did not matter. The restaurant was the only place that had wifi and this resort astonishingly uses only a pocket wifi to accommodate its guests. Not impressive as you have several guests all connecting to that one pocket wifi which was rather very poor. The restaurant food was not too bad and the portions were generous. The spaghetti and carbonara dishes were a bit oily though. The tuna sandwich is very nice. Menu price is very reasonable. The girls at the restaurant are helpful and friendly. The afternoon shift girls at the restaurant like to play loud disco music and my husband had to tell them twice to turn down the volume and if they could play some nice easy listening music instead of the head banging stuff. They did change the music after that. They don't seem to understand that guests staying at the resort go there to relax and chill and enjoy the peace and don't want to listen to loud bumping music. Cherlyn, the receptionist was very helpful and found me all the information I wanted for our trip to Lake Balanan. She even gave me a map of Negros Oriental which I wanted. The driver Paco was a very patient, careful and skilled driver. He took extra care when we did the trip up the mountain to Lake Balanan. If you are thinking of chilling and relaxing, NEVER EVER go to this resort on the weekends. Our second and third nights coincided with the weekend and it was completely ruined and we were very disappointed by the noise caused by the local people who "walked-in" to spend the day in and outside the swimming pool. I had the impression that the locals treat this resort as their weekend picnic place as it is affordable. One group had like 10 or even more come in and spend their time on the lawns and in the pool. No one supervised the screaming kids who were disturbing the paying guests. Half of the restaurant was all wet with water from children walking in and out with wet dripping swimsuits. Nobody cared to mop up the place until I asked one of the girls to as I could not enter the restaurant and risk a bad fall (again) and hurt my injured operated knee. None of the parents of these kids bothered and could not care about the guests staying there. Suggestion: it would be great if the resort has a sign saying that entry into restaurant is not permitted if you are wet. A little consideration goes a long way. Because it's so far away from everywhere, you have to depend on the resort's transport which is 900 pesos (about USD$20) each trip one way. I had a 1 hour full body massage in the room for 600 pesos (USD$15). Overall, we had a pleasant stay at Kav's Beach Resort except on the weekend. We will not be going back to this resort for 2 reasons: too noisy with kids on the weekends, and too far from everywhere.

Location is great, facilities are clean and appealing. The restaurant was not good for the western dishes that I ate as well as the couple joining us. The front desk made it quite clear that check out was at 12. No late check out. No putting our bags in our car and using the facilities. (which was a good thing based on the food) in all fairness our wives enjoyed the food they had which was local dishes. My friend and I are not new to the Philippines. I have lived here 5 years and he has been here 10. We have been to many resorts on various islands including the one we live on. We stayed at the resort next door 1 month ago and it was excellent. I really wanted this place to be as good. Unfortunately I was disappointed and never felt welcome at all.

This place is nice with clean rooms and a peaceful atmosphere. Unfortunately; it's hard to get to and well away from the city/town and the service is really really bad.

The built in restaurant is way way overpriced and the service is abysmal. You order for 2 with 2 other tables and it took over an hr on multiple occasions. The other option is next door and similarly priced with no other good options within walking distance.

Very bad !! Really boring place and you can’t do anything in the near. The staff looks like people who hates their life and just sitting behind the bar with their phones!!! Sooo slowly to make food and then it was really bad every single day. The staff really need a serious talk from Kasper (the owner)

The Kavs Beach resort was very nice , relaxing and quiet . It had a nice atmosphere for relaxation . I had an In room mani / pedi which was really nice , special mention to Rena who did a great job . The resort staff were very courteous and helpful . Their pool was clean and nice . I did not like the beach area in front of their resort because the view on either side did not add to the charm of the place . The food was good , I liked the Spaghetti Carbonara ... The sweet and sour fish could have been bigger portion for the price and probably needed to be a fish fillet instead of the fish with bones , the fruit platter was a little disappointing . Wifi wasnt too fast but alright .

Kav’s was quiet and relaxing! You had use of the pool but it’s also on the beach although unless you have suitable aqua shoes you’re not going to be able to swim in the sea. We booked this hotel to go to Apo Island to snorkel with the turtles and if this is your aim I would highly recommend booking a tour through the hotel as it was only P3000 for both of us and that included pick up and a full day snorkelling in three locations and lunch, the cheapest we managed to find. If you’re looking for relaxation you can also book a selection of items such as full body massage for P600 or manicure or pedicure for P300 (you just need to give reception 3 hours notice) the restaurant serves food most of the day until 10pm (last orders are 9.30) food is average, home made and reasonably priced. We opted for the bungalow option when booking which left us with an enormous room containing one double and one king sized bed, rooms were clean, shower hot and powerful, air con icy cold and the mini bar well stocked and cheap. Everything you could want from a room! it’s a fair treck from the ferry port, we were given a variety of options for our transfer but opted for the private transfer the hotel organised, it was P1000 for both of us each way, in my opinion worth every penny but it depends on your individual budget as public transport or a trike would be considerably cheaper, but much longer.

Super nice resort in front of the beach where you can sweeming and snorkel. Beautiful garden and amazing sunsets. Dorms are cheap but the rooms and huts expensive. Very nice staff, helpful and welcoming. Highly recommend this place!
