Had a great time here, good location and staff. Did my laundry with them and they lost all my underwear leaving me with 3 pairs for the next 2 weeks so there’s that. For expensive laundry you’d think it would be safe but oh well.

Very comfortable and clean rooms! The staff are phenomenal, really trying to know your name and interact with you. The pool area is lovely in a beautiful setting. It’s affordable considering the Philippines isn’t cheap (compared to other parts of SECAsia). There are a few things to make it even more social, moving some of the tables away from the bar at night to create a dance floor. Some of the activities are quite expensive and it puts people off joining.

This place is amazing. I was in Bohol for a 2 night quick and fun adventure and this place adds up to make it a great one. I loved the atmosphere, vibe and set up of the place. Will definitely comeback and bring my friends with me.
