10/10 Exceptional

We love the peace and quiet of the place. The resort is well-maintained and very clean. The towels and sheets are new, still fluffy and white. We love the hospitality and friendliness of all the staff, they gave a warm welcome upon our arrival and a goodbye song to the guests leaving. Checking in was very smooth and hassle-free. We arrived at the resort at 9:30am and while our room was not ready, Eds (Supervisor) gave us a nice room to freshen up and rest while waiting for our water cottage. Their activity coordinator planned our tours and activities according to the duration of our stay. She even arranged a trip to Miniloc on our last day so we could experience feeding the jackfishes. A four-day trip is definitely not enough and we'd love to go back!

10/10 Exceptional

Overall a really nice place to stay for a quiet island holiday. The full board option was quite nice, served buffet style food (local and western) and quality was very good. Staff was extremely friendly (like almost everywhere in Philippines as it seems) and they accommodated our requests swiftly. The location itself is great and the resort is lovely. Would say that compared to Miniloc it’s a bit more off the grid, as Miniloc has its own reef and is closer to most sights. However the tours Lagen offers (for free if you like!!!) are great. We did two private tours and the service was great. Our guide Joe was excellent and knew what tourists value. Acted as a “hobby photographer” at all times to capture our experience. The went all out for us, we truly loved the service. The speed boat takes about 20 min to get to most places, though it’s a rough ride if the sea is choppy. Overall improvement was the WiFi quality in the room. However they delivered a portable WiFi when we raised it. This one worked well. In General the Resort seems slightly dated and could use a bit of a touch up here and there (smart TV, update of paths, etc.). However, critique only marginal here. In General the condition was good and we would definitely come back.

Booked this for my parents. They had the time of their lives! This resort went above and beyond for them as they celebrated their anniversary - messages on the bed in palm leaves & flowers, special dessert for dinner, and there was a live musician who dedicated a song to them. The resort is absolutely stunning, the sand so soft, the water beautiful turquoise, the staff were so welcoming and they felt very safe their entire time. They stayed in a water cottage which was an amazing experience and worth the extra money. Many excursions and activities to do like snorkelling over coral and lagoon kayaking. Staff were also very easy to communicate with via email. Now I want to go! Thank you for a wonderful vacation!

From start to finish my honeymoon here was amazing! You receive a welcome song and a good-bye song when you go. Staff are very friendly, always smiling, and accommodating. The scenery is breathtaking and waters are pristine. The area is private so its a romantic spot. The manager, Sanders, prepared a romantic complimentary dinner for my husband and I on our last night on the dock with our own server, Leo, who was also great! There is a private beach around the corner from the resort that you can kayak to, or take a speed boat, or hike to. There are rocks there so I would recommend someone wear their water shoes. You can also snorkel at this beach! The waters are so clear at the resort that you can see all kinds of fish swimming around already,especially if you try the paddle boarding there! Definitely would recommend this place if you are looking for a relaxing vacation!

8/10 Very Good

Great staff, great location, nice welcome, quiet and relaxing resort. A bit pricey though. Getting the complete package only for full days when you can do the tours and have all 3 meals is worth it but not on partial days like day of arrival and day of departure. Surprised us with a two for 1 dinner buffet and an anniversary dessert plate. Two for one happy hour is great.

8/10 Very Good

Beautiful setting! Good facility. Great service!
Amazing setting and natural beauty. The facilities are a bit run down and in need of refurbishing. The hotel is clean and well maintained but it has aged and is rundown. Time for some capital expenditures by Ayala. The staff is well trained and provided great personalized service. The food, served mostly in a buffet setting, is good. The daily catch was especially good. The island hopping and snorkeling were outstanding.
