The location is absolutely wonderful. Our villa was right on the beach and breathtaking. There was a lovely pool and massage cabins on the beach which were excellent.
Breakfast was very good. However, despite many things on offer, yogurt was basic and sweetened and there was no honey the first day. Not what I would really expect from a hotel at this level. There was a mix up with one of my massage bookings and the reception staff blamed the masseuse which was unreasonable of them. The most disappointing fact was that there were loungers all over the beach, but none of them had any kind of mattresses on them. As I have a bad back, this meant that none of them were usable. There were also loungers a bit like short bean bags, but again with a bad back, no support for the head and neck or long legs. The furniture was also very shabby and looked as though it badly needed replacing. This is not what I expect at a beach resort of this calibre. We also felt that the concierge and his support team were wearing uniforms which weren't clean and also looked very shabby. Considering the amazing location of this hotel, this is all very easy to remedy, but a great shame that the management haven't done something about it earlier.
The breakfast was good with sufficient variety. Transfer arrangement from and to the Tagbilaran city port was seamless even though I had to move up our arrival time. I initially advised I would be taking a different speedboat and the property was proactive to confirm that there is no such boat arriving on that day so they wanted to confirm I would not get stranded without pickup if I arrive earlier or later. I had confirmation minutes before the boat departed Cebu City so my entire ride to Bohol I was relaxed knowing the driver will be there to greet us.
If you want beach for swimming, don't stay on the west side of the resort otherwise you will have to walk far to the premium beach adjacent to the Bohol Beach Club. Watch out for sea urchins, they are indeed present there, so swim shoes are highly advisable.
Great beachfront location with excellent facilities and service
A bit isolated so you have to travel a bit to eat if you want to try something else
See full of star fish.
See is to shallow for swimming.
The service is exceptional and location is perfect. Not crowded.
