I agree that the location is idyllic, with fantastic views. The beach is black sand and, unfortunately it is a little dirty as the staff does not bother to clean it. The resort would be great if they limited the number of people as it has a nice pool and relaxing sea. On one hand, they allow day visitors who...

It's not your 5 star white sand beach resort, but if you're looking for a place to lounge in on weekends to catch a tan, it's a good place to relax in... Blue sea, clean beach, good food, big cottages with wide benches u can sleep on.... Stayed for about 2 hours for lunch and rest, didn't see their rooms....

Employees have no customer service, not accomodating and as if you owe them your visit. If you are only for the island hopping then might as...

I asked their staff nicely to turn it on for just a few minutes to make us relax since we travelled from cebu by land , but still they did...

My stay at caluwayan was spent by climbing the big rock formation and which are just seen nearby the beach. Place was excellent, staff are all nice, feels like im at home with a quiet place. Going there is easy and only take an hour.
