Been here twice and both times I was disappointed. Although beachside, the dark grey sand doesn't look very clean or inviting. First time we were here, the food servings were so small, each viand seemed like measured by teaspoons. The last visit, at least 5 of us were stricken down by tummyaches, vomiting and diarrhea. Wont recommend this unless there's nowhere else to stay and if you are simply interested in the red light district.

It was a family room accomodation. Beachfront location, clean and huge room with 1 queen size bed, 1double bed on the floor ( no bed frame). With mini ref, no coffee/tea maker, no oven. With 4 complimentary bottled water, toiletries and 2 free breakfast. Toilet with water heater and bidet but no cleaning rags in front door and toilet. Room price a bit expensive for me coz its lacking some items for a hotel room. They have restaurant but a bit pricey, though food was good. There are many eateries outside the establishment, 7-11 and Divimart supermarket are nearby the location. Swimming pool-small and dirty. We opted to swim in the beach, which is clean and clear. Hotel and restaurant staff- all accomodating. Clean surroundings, safe and very peaceful at night.

The resort have improved from previous years because of the new building and rooms are very promising. The room rate is somehow average and the resto meal prices are reasonable. The shore was clean and neat. There is a good space for car parking. There are still some renovation ongoing and i hope they continue to improve especially their service in the future. Here are some of the few things we observed and i hope they improve more. 1. Toiletries is somehow lacking. 2. No floor mat or rag which cause toilet or room to flood when wet. 3. No kettle for hot water. 4. No complimentary coffee or tea. 5. Majority of the towels are dated. I hope they have matresses compare to the thin linen. 6. No elevator. It will be a burden for old peeps if you are located at the 3rd floor. 7. No rack to hang wet clothes or at least a toilet wire hanger. 8. Resto breakfast is limited 9. Food serving need to improve. 10. No visible life guard. 11. No one offer or even assisted for our luggages when we arrived and checked out. I hope service crew smile sometimes. Overall, the hotel at their current rate is decent and fair. We will continue to come to this place because the location is good and accessible to many options. Im hoping they made some adjustment because they are just few improvements away to deserve a five point rating.

Would quickly have the understanding on the difference between being greedy and having a business. The owner would obviously care less about your experience since you're already checked in (oooops! Too late.) paid for a room enough for 4 persons, ended up with a double sized bed along with a single floor mattress; i had to basically accommodate my family first and ended up sleeping in the car due to shortage. To add, i had to prep the floor mattress by myself since the old guy who worked there just gave and left me with it. Breakfast came, was on a good mood since bfast was included but the place wont disappoint with disappointments, (lol), had to sit, wait, and be ignored for over an hour. Whats more frustrating and sad is, i got skipped as i see new visitors coming in, and not to rain down on guests esp our good foreign friends but, its just sad as filipinos have this mentality of ignoring their own once they see them foreigners coming. Got this negative profiling attitude. Point is, beach area is not that well taken care of, room is not worth it, food is edible at least, and place is terribly understaffed. Their staff somehow managed to compensate on all the inadequacies of the resort. Sad; im not going in for the third time.
