Great Stay

Review of Fantasy Lodge
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Nov 19, 2023via mobile
Great stay, we had the Dome Room which was amazing, although it could be quite noisy from the room underneith us.

The tiling outside could be quite slippery at times too.

Food was good and atmosphere was good.

Would recommend and would stay again.

      We booked ‘The Dome’ or the Deluxe Suite with an incredible sea view: one of the most special rooms I’ve ever stayed in. Pool was great, restaurant was good, nice list of activities. Easy hop on to and off from Ceres bus liner.

      Sea was rough and beach very rocky, so not great if you are looking for a beach resort destination. Lodge is build to be out a and explore. Location quite remote, but perfect for a pit stop if you’re traveling around Cebu island.

      Room tip: Quite remote, so I would book it as a pit stop on your trip around the island rather than an individual multiple night stay

      Fantasy Lodge is a cute hotel in Samboan built on the side of a cliff with gorgeous views of the sea and a beautiful swimming pool. It is famous for their Kawa bath which only costs ₱500 per person for an hour experience soaking in a large wood fire heated cauldron of water with aromatic oils and fresh flowers from their gardens. The guy in charge of the Kawa bath is also a wonderful photographer and take amazing photos.

      Fantasy is a good name for the resort because everything about redefines paradise.

      The bungalow suite had a working jacuzzi which made a very comfortable bath and steam sauna which was ideal for me to relax in.

      The kawa baths were my favorite as we watched the sunset while in such relaxing and hot water.

      The messages were nice and hope someday they will make a dedicated room just for that feature instead of it being in the rooms.

      The staff were all very friendly and worked with me online when though my schedule kept changing even ending transportation for me and all of my Filipino family that joined.

      I would highly recommend staying at this resort and it made my family bonding time absolutely magical.

      Very nice location.

      We stayed in the Bungalow with sauna and jacuzzi the most expensive couple room:

      ALL the soaps were thin like water. The staff must refill it with water since months. Not even a tiny bit of foam came out. No toiletries as well. In all corners, windows and lampshades were dirt and dead mosquitos all in all very dirty. The Jacuzzi was not plugged in, nobody told us so. The plugin is above the cliff and kind of dangerous to reach. The door nob and lock was actually damaged, only after 15 min. we were able to lock.

      Breakfast/Restaurant: coffee had only powdered creamer mixed with water as milksalternative. Food was not special at all and hard to recommend.

      Pool and view was very nice. Although the whole location was a bit rocked down.

      We saw buildings going on do we guess they already working on maintanace.

      This place is great! It’s located on a steep hill with an incredible view of the ocean and islands in the distance. The food is good, the staff friendly and the atmosphere very chill. There is a nice little pool to cool off in. Also a small coral covered beach with kayaks. This is a great spot to stay if you want to see the less crowded waterfalls of southern Cebu. Many are a short tricycle ride away. You do not need tours. You can just stand out front and catch a ride. Fantasy Lodge can arrange everything you need for tours as well. They also help you book onward transportation if needed. Get a massage while here. It’s cheap and the gazebo on the edge of the hill is the perfect spot for it.
      My only (and very small) annoyance is the keycard for power in the room. Although this is common in smaller places I just wish we could have the power on sometimes when leaving the room. The rooms were west facing and very warm in the evening but the air conditioning goes off whenever you leave. Once you are used to the heat this is not a problem but it was the start of our trip coming from Canadian winter so we had not acclimatized yet.
      Overall great stay though.
