We didn’t stay and we won’t ever. Today, 22nd March 2020 we were in the reception of this hotel to ask for a staying. We had a horrible experience at reception desk, where we have been treated like two uneducated outsiders. The Lady had no patience at all, when we asked her to repeat what she said (she is wearing a face mask and speaking broken English) she started to raise her voice on us in A really bad way. If it is how this hotel treat a possible guests I wish them good luck.

Stayed here for 5 nights with my wife and 4 year old son. The pictures on the Internet don't do this place justice it was beautiful. The pool and outside sitting area where fabulous plenty of relaxing sun beds to go around for everybody. The cottage was lovely and clean and had everything you could need in it,it was cleaned every day and mini bar restocked. The staff all lovely and friendly especially to my son. The place is a bargain for what you pay. A quick word on panagsama beach the place was exactly what we where looking for nice and chilled out with plenty of restaurant and bars over looking the sea. A nice chilled out vibe. Not your average Asian seaside resort with busy roads and loads of people trying to sell you trips etc.after staying in panglao I'd lost a bit of faith in the Philippines but this place was beautiful just what we wanted. Anyway thanks marcosas for your beautiful resort and looking after us wish I could stay longer. Hopefully be back some day.

We didn't have the best experience here. It wasn't awful but really, some of the staff let it down. The highlights are the pool is great, me and my daughter loved the slide, also the breakfast is not bad. The lows were, even though we booked 2 adults and my daughter, my daughter apparently doesn't qualify for breakfast. Say that to any parent and it generally goes down like a lead balloon. I mean, that's ridiculous. When I complained they just smiled and said, you booked through Agoda. Ummm....and?.... The other point is the travel operator there is useless. I emailed multiple times about the kawasan falls trip, she never replied, when I eventually did get a reply I was told I was definately booked on to the trip. When she eventually decided to show up at the hotel she was inning and err-ing a lot saying yes, you are going tomorrow. Next day, I was up early and I got a note from another staff that the trio was cancelled. I had. This feeling the whole time she would let me down, so my advice is book trips outside of the hotel. I hired a moped and drove to the falls myself and there were canyoning trips going on there so it felt like she was just too lazy to deal with just one person rather than a group. Overall it felt like everything was annoying to them. Asking for towels for the pool seemed a chore, we didn't feel very welcome. You can have a great hotel, but if the staff don't have enthusiasm it really can spoil your time. Location wise, it was at the further side of town from the action, but we preferred this end of town. I can only give 2 stars at best because we liked the pool, let down by the service

Edith and staff provide a German owned scrupulously clean set of bungalows and rooms which remind me of Bali before the fall. I personally love thatched bungalows with enough mod cons to be comfortable and very functional and these fit the bill . My bed was roomy and comfortable , good aircon and ceiling fans and pleasant gardens . Clean bathrooms but only adequate water pressure( there is a water shortage) I stayed in 2 rooms over 9 days ;up the back, elevated was my preference and further away from the not very intrusive ‘doof doof’ from the small nightlife strip further along this small ‘resort’ . Breakfast was limited in choice but fine . A good selection of English cable tv channels. No WiFi in rooms but aPhilippine sim sorted my phone . Clean but narrow beach and clean seawater . Nice poolGood spa/ massage .Lots of snorkelling, diving and sea creature viewing available. A reasonable number of nice Chinese , German and Dutch family groups and couples in town - Chinese for CNY who kept busy with activities....roads don’t permit big bus loads of tourists so that’s a plus too. You have to come by bus or hotel van along pretty ordinary roads for 3 to 4 hours from Cebu airport which is very new and impressive . Minuses? Food in the various restaurants was pretty ordinary but like everything, except the accommodation price at Marcosas , very very cheap. A very relaxing holiday.

It is at the southern end of Pagansama Beach but it’s still only a leisurely 5 minute walk to the centre of the action. Great rooms, amazing pool, awesome breakfast and lovely staff. Only negative for me was poor wifi but welcome to the Philippines. I would definitely stay here again. Plenty of restaurants and shops for supplies in the area.
