I've never stayed at a resort in which the guests failed to greet each other. It's a small resort so its impossible to not come in contact with other guests. While the Filipino staff were very friendly and accommodating, the owner should learn from the staff's hospitality!

The Swiss owner Arthur and his wife Evelyn have spent 20 years building this hotel in Sipalay from scratch and they have done a wonderful job. It's a great hotel in a beautiful tranquil setting, reasonably priced. My wife is Filipina and from the local area. We spend many

Hi, I can't really say anything about the pricing for a group like the one you will be bringing. If you contact the resort via email, I'm sure they will get right back to you. I don't know how you will be getting around, but know that it is about a 4 hour drive from Bacolad to Sipalay. The resort is actually about 9 km from Sipalay. I can tell you that the prices are very reasonable and the rooms are immaculate and the food is excellent.
