Had a blast here! They really went out of their way to give excellent service to the customer. Even to the extent of marketing & providing healthy food & drinks for diabetics like me. Before you can even ask for anything like free coffee, or even icecold water, they’re ready to give it to you with the sincerest of smiles & greetings! Anilao may not have a shoreline but Philip Ann Resort makes up for it by offering free kayak, snorkelling gear & huge float so you can enjoy the sea water to the max. You dont even have to pay even for the use of the gym, use of the steamroom, videoke room , billiards & games, & they do have a bubbly jacuzzi & pool with floats for kids & adults, by the sea. With their facing-the-sea balconies pumped up with sofas, hammocks, sunchairs to enjoy the great sunrise/sunset/starry views in comfort, or while having your meals set up in the balconies, these all make up for whatever you may find lacking in your room or stay. Ours was a quick break from worklife & when free tequila or buy one take one margaritas was offered, it clinched our resolve that this is one of the resorts we’d go back to in the near future. Never mind beach walks when everything else you need is available with solicitous staff making your stay memorable, and the salo salo meals, their version of boodle, are great for 6 hungry peeps, with extras to boot, in their restobar with a view of the sea. Their descending steps are good for exercise, but if you’ve problems descending or ascending, they’ve an army to help you manage this, even if they’ve to carry you up or down (i believe), the way they get hold of your baggages whether small or big, even from the parking area, a few meters away. The response also to your queries is super fast. Rooms, though small, are clean and smell good. Thank you Philip Ann for setting the bar when it comes to excellent Filipino customer service.
