We scouted the area before deciding to go with this resort. Beach swimming and activities were not a priority for us as we just wanted to lounge around and relax on a weekday. We went ahead with this resort because 1.) Reviews was quite good and says it has a great view of the coastline. 2.) That sunset view.
This resort is perched above a hill and is quite secluded (a plus for me). It was in the middle of a weekday when we went there so we were the only guest of the resort for that day. Upon inquiring, we were quite dismayed thought that they were only currently accepting cash. As we have already chosen this resort, we had to go back to Calatagan town proper to withdraw money for our stay. Nevertheless, no biggie for us as we used that opportunity to buy a few items and snacks at the town grocery store. Room was ok, we occupied the Cecilia villa. Food was ok as well with good serving portions. But the highlighted of our stay is definitely the sunset view. We just stayed around the pool area while watching the sunset. We had dinner after and capped off the day with some drinks on the high view deck overlooking the coastline and the islands of Mindoro and Lubang. There a few things they can improve with regards to the service and facilities but overall we had a great stay.
