Pearl Farm Resort has an amazing post card view with its ethic and intimate interiors and wonderful facilities. They serve delicious and varied food in their buffets that will surely satisfy you. Everything is perfect in our stay but what’s really commendable are their warm and professional staffs who really made our stay unforgettable. Everybody is so nice from the front desk, servers porters, shuttle driver Jerson and kitchen staff at the buffet .

We stayed overnight (not our first time) and the whole family had fun. People at the resort were very accommodating, attentive, and enthusiastic. I had a bit of an issue with the sale representative, though. All went well, eventually. Highly recommended.

Very well maintained and charming resort & facilities. The rooms are very spacious and well appointed. Very friendly staff and with the full board set up you wont go hungry. We are usually not fans of buffets but the buffet at Pearl Farm is very high quality. Make sure to get some free wine, beer or cocktails during the sunset hours. Kids enjoyed the beach and pool. I understand how families keep going back to this place for years.

You can't say it's a 5 star hotel when there is not a fine dining option, the chefs are nothing more than buffet cooks. We stayed in this resort 5 years ago, we had a great experience that's why we returned but very disappointed this time. With the kind of money we paid we felt robbed. We are vegans, we were served the same dinner 3X in a row ( pasta and meatballs). They need to hire a more imaginative chefs, it was not a great.. We will never return.

We had an awesome experience at Pearl Farm. From the time I stepped foot on the resort, I was greeted with warm smiles and genuine hospitality. One of the highlights of my stay was the exceptional service. The staff members went above and beyond to ensure that my every need was met. My sister had abdominal pain (later on we found out it was premenstrual cramps) and their nurse paid her a visit to check on her. They provided her with medicine and checked her from time to time. They were always there with a smile and a willingness to assist. Speaking of food, the dining experience at Pearl Farm was a culinary delight. The restaurant offered a delectable array of dishes. Can’t wait to come back here soon!

In terms of the resort’s physical set up, nothing much has changed since the last time I was here nearly 20 years ago. I can’t believe their 2 swimming pools are still NOT heated compared to the newer five star resorts, Discovery Samal and Lubi Plantation. Their beach area is not swimmable during low tide. As expected, our standard room was basic. The only thing I like about our stay here was the full board service. The foods were so delicious, unlimited soft drinks, San Mig beer & other alcohol drinks, etc. The friendly and polite staff were all lovely. Prior to check in, I received an email giving me option to have my credit card charged before or upon check in date. I opted to have it charged before the check in date. I was surprised that the staff who attended my check in was about to charge me again. Had I not showed to her the proof of payment, I would have been charged twice. I did not expect this inconvenience to happen in a five star resort. Overall, we find this resort average.

Dear dabawenyo, Mabuhay! We appreciate you taking the time to provide feedback on your experience with us. It will always be our pleasure to give you an all-inclusive luxury getaway. We are delighted that you are pleased with not just our service but also with our meals. We always take pride in what we offer you and ensure that the food is of the highest quality. We also acknowledge that we fell short in terms of some of our amenities. We are currently working on some big renovations; in fact, since 2013, we have renovated all rooms, restaurants, parola, gym, we built a convention center, a boutique, and the front office, among other facilities. We also have a new swimming pool in Malipano, which you might want to consider when you come back. On the other hand, we will examine the circumstances that occurred with your payment with our relevant departments and take urgent action to ensure that we only provide the finest to our guests. Nonetheless, we appreciate your candid evaluation, and we look forward to your return and having an even better time than you did before. Daghang salamat! Sincerely, Vince Mor D.
