Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
It’s a massive property with security guards 24/7 so ones safety and privacy are ensured. If you want peace and quiet this place is for you. Staff are friendly and helpful. The beach wasn’t that great, it’s quite muddy. We had the beach villa. Our private pool’s tiling looked old and needs attention. The hanging couch by a tree outside our room looked dirty so there was no point relaxing there. On our 2nd day, the tap leaked all over the floor seeping through the bathroom tiles. Again, poor tiling. The food in our restaurant was ok. Not the one that I expected from a supposedly five star hotel. All in all, our stay was average. It was not worth the expensive money for sure.

Relax, quality time with my wife
The hotel is high end, nice designed resort, design rooms. Everything is well maintained. The place is large and has a nice, quite, white beach and clean water. The vues are nices. Everyone of the staff is highly accomodating, polite, patient and friendly. The food is very good. I love this place and i am happy i did not stay at Mactan Island, but took the 3 hours drive to the resort. It is a great value for money, as this resort deserves his 5 stars.
