Lovely place with a wonderful view of the ocean. Excellent rooms (we had a Deluxe Seaview), friendly and helpful staff. Transfer to/from Cebu City ran safely and with clockwork precision. Just a few points that prevents me from giving the highest rating: * A fair bit of traffic noise, as the place is overlooking the main highway. Not bothersome inside...

Thanks for your review. It is stunning fort me that you give a rating for services you didn´t use. But this seems to be normal at Tripadvisor-it helps psychological sick person to feel important. If you come to the Philippines to eat burger all is clear for me. Since 14 years we are well known for our special delicacies and...

I have been here many times with my wife and friends. Food is great!. Rooms are quiet and clean. Nice swimmingpool. Owners Inge and Alex are very nice people. The staff is also great. Close at tinko beach and only 45 min from the whalesharks. We will come again for sure. Alex and Inge: keep up the good work.

We were there only to have a meal, so I cannot comment on the hotel. The view is gorgeous--the restaurant is on a hilltop and has a wrap-around balcony with a great view of the ocean. The setting is rustic and peaceful. However, the service is really slow and it was hard to explain our order to the waitstaff (we...

Hi from BBB. Thanks for your review. All in all it is a hotel review page and not a restaurant page. So I wonder that Tripadvisor is publishing a review like this. But let´s talk about your content.

Reviewed 10 February 2016

The place is located on a hilltop overlooking Bohol Sea and with clear views of Siquijor, Panglao and Bohol Islands. The reception office is located at the back and one has to walk some distance (carrying your bags as there is no one to ask for help except for the lone guard). Food service in the restaurant is so slow.

Hi from BBB. We are sorry for the inconveniences you experienced. Please understand: We are famous and it is hard to get bad reviews for our big success. There are lots of guests coming to us and that means waiting time. Please understand we cannot kick out our regular Restaurant Visitors to satisfy Resort Guests only. Thanks for understanding.

The restaurant was so slow we had to amuse ourselves playing pool... The other groups that came before us were served first. These groups were with a local tourist guide...it's unfair that the servers do not observe the first come first serve basis. It took us more than hour of waiting before we could satisfy our hungry stomachs. I think...

“We stayed in a double room with air conditioning (room 8), well worth the extra. on the oposite side of the swiming pool but everything is close enough. If you have any requirements just let the owners know and I am sure they will sort it for you. Room furniture follows the resort name, bamboo, but still confortable. Maybe some of the equipment could use a bit of modernization. Can't comment on TV as it was never switched on. I don't usually travel 30 hours on a plane to watch tv.”
