Stayed for 2 nights in this hotel. A good 3hrs 30mins drive from the city on a good day. We got the deluxe room, good for 3 pax. Room was very big and had an exclusive outdoor seating. One king sized bed and a single bed was perfect to sleep a family of 3. Room amenities was complete from toiletries, to robes, slippers and umbrella. As for the food (breakfast), we will make a different review for their Kusina Restaurant. Cons: - Some walkways were not well lit during the night. - Salty tap/shower water. - We saw dog poop when we arrived near the steps, it was still there when we left. - Pool lights not enough. - Resort food was disappointing.

Kandaya is a place to unwind away from the city. It has a very nice white sand beach. Its shoreline is long wherein you can walk liesurely. If one needs to relax, this is definitely one of the place where you can. It is quiet and peaceful. When it comes to the staff, all are friendly an helpful. My family and I definitely felt relaxed, and recharged after stressful weeks. PS: The sunrise and sunset is a plus.

Nice resort but over priced. The rooms are great the wifi good and the views wow. Restaurant food not so great and way too expensive and not so great. Even the local beer is $P300 😡. The price paid for the rooms should be all inclusive. Beach is not so clean and the only nice thing is the gym and the infinity pool

We stayed at an ocean view suite at the main hotel. The room was huge and very beautiful. The veranda was large and the furniture was elegant but a bit dusty. The area is clean but some areas had cockroaches and doors did not work as well as we hoped. The good thing is that the place is really safe. Since we reserved 2 rooms, there was an incident in the other but they recovered by moving our colleagues to another room immediately. This was a fast move and a good one. Regarding amenities, their kids playground is safe and clean. They have a game room (arcade games, table tennis, pool table), gym, bikes, tennis, basketball, paddle boat, water tricycle, jetski, kayak, island hopping, and horse riding. The attendant in the game room area is amazingly very nice and very accommodating. About the rooms, the rooms located in the main hotel give you close access to the restaurant, pool, beach, and game room. Ocean villas give you very close access to the beach. Family rooms are a bit far from all other amenities offered by the resort but are good for 9 pax. One thing I appreciate at the place is their staff. Everyone seems to be well trained in terms of customer service. A shoutout to the manager of the animal stable who was very accommodating to my brother who was a person with disability. One disappointing thing about the hotel is their food. Food outside of the resort is way better. I think they could do something better about this. Also, just to mention, phone number 661 or was that 611 doesn't seem to work and that is what all the flyers in the room say to call when there is a problem. Overall, I'm giving them 3 stars because our stay was generally nice and smooth from arrival to check out. The use of their facilities were a breeze, and I was able to try almost all that they could offer in a 2 day stay. From table tennis, tennis, basketball, arcade games, paddle boarding, kayaking, and biking around, customer service was excellent! The place is relatively quiet and safe. Staff are there to assist you in anything that you need.

If you want exclusivity, then Kandaya is the perfect resort to be in Cebu. Pros: - scenic views - spacious rooms - clean resort - courteous staff - good food selection - offers a variety of activities for kids and adults Cons: - not so many trees that will give you shade near the pool and restaurant area - food taste is so-so Kandaya is a must visit resort!

Hi Kandaya Restaurant, I am writing this honest review during our stay last Feb 13-14 of this year 2022. It was our first time in your resort and outstandingly it was beautiful. Service/crew: 5/5 special shoutout to our attendant in the restaurant named Leizl Amenties: 4.5/5 it's understandable that the place is still in further renovation, but I'd appreciate it would be cleaner than it looks. Room: 5/5 nice modern asian interior design, no problem with the fixtures, water and electricity is good. Room is also clean. Food: 2/5 very poor taste in food. I got discouraged since its not tasty at all. The food is bland. We tried a lot in your menu and no offense but the bbq outside Kandaya tastes better. Please improve or hire a filipino chef instead of a foreign one who doesn't have an idea about filipino taste/filipino dishes. overall, was a nice getaway from the city. Would definitely comeback next time. Thanks

Very beautiful place. My family love it here. It is now my family's new favorite. The vila with private pool was very perfect not only for fsmily but for couples. They also offer horse riding and my kids luv it. Vila 805 will be missed. Good memories were made.

We enjoyed the scenic beach front. It’s a place for romantic getaway. A place where I can feel that I’m enjoying the serenity. The view is spectacular! Though, there were some issues with the internet connection during our stay. Also the food was not that satisfying but still we enjoyed our stay. There’s a lot of activities like horseback riding, cycling, tennis, combat fit training, kayaking , cat sailing, and etc. We’re trying to experience all the activities but 2 nights’ stay is not enough, hopefully we can stay longer next time.

We had an extended stay here in October 2021. This place is so out of this world pretty the rest is a bonus. They have the five star amenities part down. Great bath towels and plenty of them, nice beach towels and ok spa products in bathrooms ( need to figure out better system for the cartridges ). No towel police. Restaurant is ok. Typical for the Philippines we had an awesome off menu fresh caught tuna one day..fine dining at its best. Then last night there got served a cold entree. Do not expect prompt service in the restaurant, the food is good quality and varied menu, nothing to wow you, most entrees were tasty and decent quality. The only bad meal we had aside from the cold one was the ribs were hideous. Great coffee in the AM and a consistently good burger were a plus. The rum mango drink on the bar drink menu was exceptional. This place is everything you want or need in paradise. Every day I watched a team sweep up the beach rake leaves etc. they need to clean daily as well the hanging swings that are around the property otherwise the place is immaculately maintained. The staff polite and almost too attentive. The stables the mini zoo the playgrounds pool and beach activities all made this a lovely family get away. It is aging and as my title says could use some refreshing if it wishes to be called 5 star but in actuality who cares ? you are in paradise. You just cannot be bad this place is so pretty so nice just don’t screw up and they do a good job at not screwing up. There were a few blemishes but our family loved our stay here. We would recommend this to anybody. It is not quite Four Seasons quality five star but close for half the price.
