The resort had an awesome vibe! Everyone talks to each other and shares their experiences of the activities they did; makes planning your day easier. Bill, the manager, was an awesome host and really made our stay worthwhile. He created a fun atmosphere and was extremely accomodating. Scuba diving just off the resort was safe with loads of corals and marine life. We also met the owner, Michael, who was very friendly and hospitable. The rooms are large with great views and the food menu was filled with options to cater for all. Definitely worth staying here! **TIP: Book the activities directly at the resort and not through other companies. You'll be in much smaller groups (2 - 4 people compared to 10 - 15 people). Do the CANYONEERING. This was such an experience. Also, the Sardine Run is only a 7 minute motor bike ride (you can hire this at the resort).
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our beautiful, private, seaside resort accommodation is tucked away in a secluded corner of Mac Payong, just 30 meters from the 2km White Beach. Just a short drive away from Moalboal and Panagsama, it offers a quiet, idyllic setting for your holiday. The location couldn't get any better for diving as one of the best reefs in the area is directly in front of your ocean view room. The reef is perfect for beginner divers, and also for snorkelers. However the step walls make an exhilarating dive for seasoned advanced divers. The resort's architecture is a blend of Mediterranean and native styles incorporating local stone and thatched roof with white arches and Spanish tiles. Each room has either a large arched doorway or huge glass sliding doors to provide guests with amazing ocean views. Fall asleep after a hard day's dive to the sound of gentle waves and the wind gently blowing through the yucca trees. Office hours: 8am to 8pm Email to arrange airport pickup with a minimum of 24 hour notice. Check -ins are to be arranged in advance if past or before normal office hours. ... more less
