Camp holiday is okay it has a good view. But i dont like the pool because it doesnt have an adult pool, the comfort room is smelly and dirty. The entrance fee is so expensive plus the corkages. It is not good for family outings.

Stayed in a family room with group of friends last year 2016. It wasn't hard to find the resort as it is just walking distance from the Samal port. Location: 5/5 🌟 It is very near the Samal port and a convenience store outside. However, some of the food stores outside closes at 9pm. If you need to transport elsewhere,...

We arrived at Samal about 11.30am and having a ton of bags with us and a cranky toddler, we just wanted to get comfy, sit down, maybe sleep inside our room. To our dismay, we were told that the rooms are NOT available until 3pm. We didn't have any place to leave our luggages with but the open cottages which...

Value for money - The price is reasonable. Their room is spacious. I liked their room. Location - It is easy to find because it's just outside the ferry terminal. There's a convenience store outside. Cleanliness - I can say that the resort is quite clean itself. Even our room was clean. Staff - Their receptionists and guards were accommodating...

Staying in these spacious camp grounds was a delight for our family. Our kids did not want to get away anymore from the mini-olympic kiddie pool and alternating with the white sanded beach. Then, there is also the playground which was just beside the kiddie pool so after swimming, they relaxed in these child-friendly amenity. There was also an infinity...

A surprise to find this so near this resort so near ferry terminal. Only 50 meter walk It's very easy to go here. Boat from Davao to Babak cost 10 pesos and take 10 min only If you have low budget go with Bus from Ecoland bus terminal. Bus going to Tagum. Ask driver or conductor to stop near ferry...

Been here many times. The place has some nice pools and room is great with good quality beds, also tv, but no phone. Restaurant is good if your pinoy, but no foreigner foods. We ordered 3 rooms for 3 couples for 2 nights before we go there. But resort has own rules in reception. When check in the rooms we...
