Truth in advertising

The resort is truly paradise. If you have never stayed in Metro Manila or residential Philippines, you may not fully appreciate the peaceful and quiet atmosphere at BIP. The facilities could use some minor upgrades, but it is a very comfortable place to stay. The staff goes above and beyond. Shuttle van at the airport waiting for us. Upon check in the front desk, they took my travel itinerary and I didn't have to give a thought to anything for the rest of my stay. They made all the arrangements and gave us reminders about our schedule. At check out, I asked Cel at the front desk for my itinerary. She said it was in the envelope that she gave me with my receipts. (I never checked) Later at the airport, who shows up with my itinerary, but Cel? She made the 20 minute one way trip to give me the itinerary that I didn't actually need. The rest of the staff is equally helpful and courteous. The complimentary breakfast was good, but lacked variety. Understandable since there were never more than a dozen people there during our stay. As for the restaurant, we tried a different dish at every meal, and without exception, every single dish was delicious. They handle all of the planning for tourist activities, and they do a great job of accommodating your needs and wants.
