Positive Reviews

Top-notch dining and drinking venues

This hotel's restaurant and two on-site bars garner plenty of praise in reviews. The laid-back restaurant, guests say, offers a great range of meals and wines, and has a lovely setting by the ocean. Visitors also note the Point Bar is a very convivial place to wind down at the end of the day, and that sundowners at the Barrel Bar (on the pier) are a highlight too.

Exceptional hospitality and service

The crew who keep this hotel resort ticking over receive a lot of positive feedback from visitors. According to reviewers, the (mainly Filipino) customer service operatives, with their unfailingly helpful attitude and cheerful outlook, are a perfect advert for Pinoy hospitality. The instructors and boat staff who look after the diving side of things frequently get rave reviews too.

Wonderful views to savour

The vistas on hand here of clear tropical seas and swaying palm trees tend to go down very well with visiting guests. Hypnotised travellers say this spot is so beautiful it could be paradise. Evidently, watching the sun come up here is pretty special.

Negative Reviews

Be prepared for lots of steps

It has been noted that moving from A to B at this resort invariably involves negotiating lots of steps and stairs. Concerned visitors say some of them are quite steep and/or slippery.
