      Individual guest reviews

      • Older travelers
        6.2

        the staff were friendly and helpful.. the room was spacious.. lovely bathroom

        the lagoon area was tired and needs upgrading. the hotel was expensive ..the food was expensive.. 15 pounds each for breakfast was extortionate as it was not a 5* hotel by any stretch of the imagination. we were not aware that July to November was the rainy season.. the weather was dull.(.not the hotel's fault obviously), but we were bored a lot of the time and the entertainment was ruined every evening by the rain!!

      • Group of friends
        5.8

        I like the nature and the swimming pools and walk ways ..and in somehow I like the "no tipping" policy although its weard and I like the staff smile and help and the quick response of any request.

        1- its terrible transportation to the city of cebu or the malls or anywhere. 2- the food policy is very bad .. you cant walk around for food and the food inside the hotel are overpriced against the quality. 3- all restaurants are closed by 11 pm or 12 which make no place to go out for fun at all :-( I hope they can make a club where resedence can network and enjoy the fun that the place provide

      • Family with children
        5.8

        The place is nicely designed although I find it not cozy at times because of lack of transportation around the area. A good train style could add up to the thrills of family staying in the hotel even just for an overnight. We could have enjoyed the place better if access and info on the facilities to enjoy are publicly announced. The lagoon needs refurbishing and extensive clean up. Suggest a more guest-oriented approach to create a more friendly ambiance.

      • Family with children
        5.8

        it was cool place...and most of staff quiet freindly..

        i think there's some problem their on line systme..even thogh I booked throgh Booked.net..they could'nt reconized my booking!! and it's pretty hard to going out to city..too remoted place..

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        For a 5 star location the food & beverage was very very expensive and as for quality it was poor. Well below the standard to be expected.

      • Family with children
        7.0

        Really friendly staff, a lot of activities to do.

        Drinks (non alcoholic) was to expensive, more than 6 times outside the resort.

      • Family with children
        7.8

        Availability of beach towels was an annoying issue you will not expect from such 5-star, expensive resort

      • Family with children
        4.6

        The design of the hotel is nice and the stuff was always friendly and helpful. Butler service is really helpful in case you have young children and need a baby sitter for couple of hours.

        Hotel is really far from everything, so in case you need to go shopping or dinning outside you need to take taxi for at least 20-30 minutes and the surroundings area doesn't look safe at all. Food and drinks inside the hotel are 5-10 times more expensive then outside. They provide only 1l of bottled water per day per room and the extra one costs 2 euros (in the outside Mall 10 l bottled water has cheaper price then 1 l in the hotel). Butler service is useful if you need to leave someone with your kids, but you can't do it for long time, since baby sitters are not experienced and they can't handle babies well. The natural beach in the resort is really small and ugly and there is no any other beach closer to the resort, so the only option you have is to stay at the pool or inside lagoons.

      • Family with children
        7.8

        I liked the overall surrounding- the trees, the quiet place and the lagoons. It is a very nice place to relax in. I liked the no tip policy.

        I didnt like the fact that the door knob going into the patio of our room was defective.

      • Family with children
        7.0

        All the staff is pleasant; The resort's facilities are very conducive for rest and recreation. Will come back soon.

        Will appreciate if the staff is well briefed/knowledgeable about everything that Cebu has to offer: food, spots to visit (historical and non), new places/attraction. For Cebu people: Terrible taxi drivers with bad attitude. They are rude, reckless and opportunists to both tourists and co-Pinoys. A very bad image for Cebu.

      • Family with children

        I like the most their landscape and scenery ...relaxing environment as well!

        Perhaps the non inclusive of their breakfast....hehe

        The hotel personnel are courteous, warm, and always ready to assist the guests. I like the "No tipping policy" as it does not give so much stress to the visitors. Keep it up.

        So far, nothing. The price may be a little bit high, but I guess it's worth spending for the kind of relaxation and recreation that we got from that stay in Plantation Bay. Indeed, the joy that we had experienced during the stay is priceless.
