The hotel's vicinity is quiet, perfect for taking a break from all the stressors of city life, away from noise, water and air-polluted places such as Metro Manila. The hotel staffs are friendly and very accommodating. I didn't like my room in the pictures displayed online but I fell in love with its simplicity and relaxing, inviting feel once I stepped into it and lied down in my bed, my eyes fixed onto the thatched high ceilings(it was high enough; it could accommodate a second story). And with the help of the chirping birds outside, soft breeze, and the soothing sound of the sea, I was immediately lulled to sleep. You are not allowed to play music on your speaker phone, as per the hotel. This is to keep the serenity of the place and allow the guests to enjoy the sound of nature. Nowhere to party at night, but seriously, if you want to party, just go to Boracay. This place is for the ones who like peace and quiet. The place is very romantic by itself; I fell in love with just everything about it especially at night that if I had a bf, I would feel as if I was being unfaithful because of how deeply I adored the place. I had the chance to speak briefly with the manager of the property—he was decent, however I didn't think he spoke to me in a polite manner. Maybe he had been polite but I didn't feel that as a guest, I was welcome, appreciated, or special. Though, it didn't really affect my over-all experience. It is also possible that I just misinterpreted the way he spoke. But in my personal opinion, he doesn't seem very friendly or accommodating. It's worth noting that there's no real beach in the island or at least the kind of beach I have in mind. There's one they call South Beach which is a good 10-15min walk from the resort and you would have to pass through the woods to get there. When I went to that remote area, I was the only person on the beach. It's about less than a kilometer stretch of off white sand beach, overlooking the twin island I'd been hearing about from the staffs. The South beach is a lot better at high tide, because the sea extends to the sandy beach. At low tide, the water only reaches up to the area of sea grass which makes the water look dark, and I'm not really comfortable swimming in murky waters or the feel of grass when I stepped on them underwater. You also won't want to swim in the South beach until late in the afternoon as it would be difficult to follow the trail in the woods back to the resort when the sun starts to set. The lack of an ideal beach spot isn't really a turn off for me as you could visit the other islands and go swimming there. Palawan has a lot to offer, you just need a boat! Besides, the front of the hotel, by the pier, is a really good diving and snorkeling spot.
