Have heard so much about Chema's by the Sea through friends who had visited the place. Apparently a private resort but have been opened to the public only a couple of years. Their booking sites seemed just aesthetics as nobody even bothered to reply the booking inquiry. If you want to book, go to their FB page and send a...

If you want to experience serenity, this is the exact place you should go. We went to this place for a day tour on a weekday and it feels like we rented the entire resort. Quite pricey going here though.

We visited for one night as a treat for my wife's birthday and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The staff were attentive and nothing was too much trouble for them. The facilities are very clean and usable unlike some other resorts. All of the buildings are very nicely designed and fit in nicely with the surroundings. The food was very good especially...

We couldn't wait to visit Chema's as the website showed really great pictures of the resort. It also seemed like people had a wonderful thing to say about the place, however, our experience wasn't what we expected. We brought our own vehicle and took the barge via DavSam. Everything went smoothly until we reached Samal Island. The first problem was...
