Came with family, stayed at the Premier and Junior Suites. Rooms were great, but service needs serious upgrade especially at the Restaurant and office. Food at the resto was really good, but the kitchen system as well as the serving and billing was a mess....More

i'm not sure if they have kayaks. maybe, snorkeling. not sure either coz they just have this floating bar where you can swim around the boat but it's quite deep out there. Floating bar was at P200 or 250.
