Reservations: Fast via website booking
Location: An hour from city proper.
Room (Two-bedroom suite/villa): modern design; very spacious rooms and bathrooms (bedroom 1 has 2 cubicles for toilet and shower and a separate bathtub; bedroom 2 has bathtub with shower and toilet plus own mini kitchen with microwave,sink, etc); has a mini sala with daybed; has dining table; and had mini kitchen with induction cooker, refrigerator, sink, pot and pan, set of utensils, chopping board. In short, the villa is your own beach house.
Amenities: Pool is awesome. Has mini golf and playgrounds in front of the beach and beside the mini golf, free use of kayak and bicycles. The resort has standby volleyball net in placed. The waterpark is approximately 5 minutes from resort (check if resort rates are inclusive of entrance to waterpark).
Staff: Attentive to needs but somewhat understaffed in room service area (had to ask for additional towels 4 times before having it sent in villa). Pool attendants are friendly and prompt.
Food: Buffet breakfast was a let down- don't have the usual breakfast staple like longanisa, tocino, dried fish, instead served fried chicken, mixed vegetables, pork adobo; but have good choice of breads and spreads. Room service food was right on time and delivered hot.
Beach: Resort is next to the sea but there is no "real shore" like in other beaches. My kids got disappointed 'cause they cannot make "sandcastles". The "sand" looks like mud and some area has a foul smell.
Overall: This is a great resort that offers above average accommodation. The resort amenities make up for the lack of a real "beach." The resort is also undergoing expansion and construction in some areas.
TIP: If you're going to avail of a two-bedroom villa, it's also good to bring some baon with you to save money as you can cook in your villa. There are also stores located just across the entrance of the resort to buy your needs, which we did.
