  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Quiet hotel, it offers excellent tours to nearby islands, good filipino food

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

It was a great place to spend the night and be the first to see the Secret Lagoon in private and avoid the crowd. There are lots of activities and everything is included except alcohol and spa services. It's pretty quiet at night with no transport to or from the resort after 2pm and El Nido is about 45mins away by boat. All meals are served buffet style. Staff is extremely helpful and grounds are well maintained.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

They all about getting your money and when you ask them something they act like they don’t understand English. We were told that transports to and from the island was free but charged us for going back 200 US dollars because we left 10 min early because we had a flight to catch ....

Decent stay

The hotel had great tasting food but it was all buffer style for breafast, lunch and dinner. Views from the pool / beach was beautiful and the resort is great for families that wish to do activities like visiting the big / small lagoon etc. One thing that we disliked was that the beach did not have chairs for us to lay by the beach and we had to lay by the pool only.
