My wife and I took our three young kids (younger than 7) to this resort. We enjoyed our stay. The staff were helpful and they had a baby crib they moved into the room. The restaurant also had a high chair which was helpful. The pools with waterslides were the big hit along with the splash park.
Few things to keep in mind:
- The owner owns Solea resort which has combined grounds with Best Western. When we checked in, the receptionist initially mentioned we would have to pay to use the other pools that are more on the Solea side. I said that was ridiculous! After I disputed this, she rechecked the reservation and said we could use them.
- Key thing to note though, the owner seems to be putting more focus and resources into the Solea resort
- Beach. They have a beach and when the tide goes out you see a lot of seaweed. It's not a swimming beach, but the kids had a lot of fun playing with the hermit crabs and they saw a sea cucumber.
- There's a small island off the beach a fisherman built and charges people to go to. It is unaffiliated with the resort and wouldn't recommend going.
- Food is good, but the resort caters principally to Koreans so lots of Korean food. Synthetic juices - nothing fresh and no fresh mangoes even though you're in Cebu!
Recommendations for the Owner:
- Don't "nickel and dime" people. We had a good time because we weren't "nickel and dimed"
- The floors in the dining area are "oily" recommend some way to keep them clean
- Don't charge people to use the obstacle course. Looked like fun, but the price was too steep so we didn't try it.
- Include mangoes on the fruit menu. It's Cebu for crying out loud - no mangoes?! less
