      Relaxing and quiet”

      Location, pool, view

      This is an interesting place. It was practically empty when we stayed but we were unable to upgrade to a nicer room for reasons that were unclear. The hotel has lovely grounds right on a private beach and the pool is lovely. You can get a massage right by the pool, which is nice. The resort is kind of a ways out from town, but the staff will give you a ride in for a reasonable price. The standard rooms are really basic shacks and they really could do more with the place considering it's amazing view and nice pool and gardens. The staff is friendly but they always seemed surprised when we asked for anything (such as lunch!) The price is reasonable and I'd stay again.

      Quiet hammocks with a view

      Stayed here five nights and really enjoyed having the place almost to ourselves. Lovely private beach, beautiful views of the bay, comfortable hammocks and seating area and clean rooms. The food was okay with large portions, but all dishes priced P200 and above, with a fairly limited menu. Most things too salty or oily for us. Staff were friendly and helpful.

      Private beach, quiet environment and dinner menu

      No service on arrival, the owner was there but did not give a smile or even said hello. Service is bad if you are not japanase clients or divers. The hotel itself is very cool, nice pool (not really clean),private pristine beach, quiet environnement. Location is a bit outside of Alona, so better to get a motorbike to go out for dinners and arounds. It is a a dive resort for japanese costumers. kids are not really welcome and not recommanded for no-japanese costumers. Luckily, we were the only one in ther esort during 5 nights. Location : 4-5kms from Alona - 1kms of dirt road

      너무좋아요 오션뷰는 헤난보다 조아요”

      한적하고 좋은곳. 일본인이 운영하기 때문에 일본인이 대부분이고 직원들도 친절해요. 아침밥은 200페소 내면 먹을 수 있는데 필리핀와서 먹은 아침밥 중에 제일 맛있어요 조용한곳 좋아하시는분 오토바이 빌려서 다니실분 추천합니다. 저희는 오토바이 빌려서 다니기 편했는데 트라이시클 타고 다니실분들 좀 불편할거에요 메인도로에서 많이 안쪽이라서 불편해요. 아마 리조트에 말하면 짚으로 알로나 비치까지 태워주는거같던데 저희는 그냥 오토바이타고 다녔어요 조용하고 리조트 너무이쁘게 꾸며놓았고 리조트 앞바다도 들어가면 그냥 물고기있어요 ㅋㅋ
