Review by Traveloka users

3 Traveloka customers have stayed in this hotel and given reviews:

Our stay was generally good. Staff were really nice and accommodating. Inclusions were very minimal, we stayed in the cabin for 8pax. but toiletries, water, etc. were very limited. Restaurant, did not have available drinking water so you would have to purchase bottled water every time! Food was also expensive for such small servings.
great service and nice cabanas. the beach though is full of garbage in the afternoon, not advisable for swimming
Nothing to do jn the resort. Too expensive. I recommend travellers to look for another hotel instead. Beach is not clean.

Wonderful Service, Kind and attentive
In order to get to the resort you must take a 10 minute boat ride from The Waterfront Insular Hotel. We have a daughter with multiple disabilities and the care and concern shown for us was just wonderful. From getting on the boat to helping us with luggage to our villa, each staff member was there to help us. It was obvious that they actually wanted to help us. Yes, the food and accommodations were wonderful too.

too secluded, very quiet and completely private
it was a good place I think, the staff were very attentive. The thing is, you'll feel so alone, you can't bring in food nor drinks, whatever you want to consume, you buy it from them but their choices are very limited. you can't even drink coffee beside the sea. It is chema's by the sea alright, you just can't do anything by the sea. it would be good for couples who want to be completely alone. I saw just one couple. The neighboring resorts were teeming with families except this place. Maybe because it's expensive or people just know, you can't have fun beside the beach, except swimming.

The most relaxing trip I had especially with the full support of the Chema's Staff, I can never ask for anything else. With the flick of a little bell you can get service and ask for anything you need that is within their menu. You can even ask for your meals to be set up anywhere within their property especially the one fronting the sea. Billing is also seamless and you will be given all the details once you check out. The MOST convenient part, they offer cash and credit card payment! If you want a land tour of Samal Island, you can also arrange for it. No need to talk to alot of people, just flick a bell and one of their friendly staff will come to you and ask what you need. Special mention to Macey and Jen for taking care of our needs also to kuya Edgar and Ray for helping us out on our land tour.

Food (Filipino style!) average. The main problem: it takes time to be severed by not well trained staff. Not to be recommended.

Good Food, Reasonable Prices
Surprisingly, the food is good for the price points. They have a wide variety of Filipino dishes. Service can take a bit long especially if you sit as a big group. But overall, restaurant experience is satisfactory.
