Unfortunately, Kahuna has great packaging and marketing but they must improve on CUSTOMER SERVICE. I certainly didn't feel welcome as I got to this resort. The front desk did not make the effort to make me feel welcome. They even demanded that we pay for the balance of our stay the moment we checked in even if we have paid... More

We booked the Kahuna apartment's weekday promo rate. The unit is clean and spacious. The place is perfect for a family get-away. Kahuna staff were courteous and accommodating when it comes to hotel needs. Food is pricey. It has pool and swim up bar (swim up bar doesn't work, though :P ) Parking for those booked in apartments was a... More

Anyway, we decided to walk-in in Kahuna. When i was inquiring for the availability and price, the front officer i approached was so unpleasant, 1 question... More

Stayed there May 20-2, 2016. Chose Kahuna because of the good reviews in here however, turned out a completely overrated resort. The ambience is nice but one would expect a friendly Front Desk but Kahuna offers you unfriendly front desk who would make you feel unwelcome and that you are bothering them. Their answers to our questions were short, unfriendly... More

The Kahuna is consistently good across the board, and this place is good if you are a family, a surfer or just looking to relax on the beach/by the pool and enjoy the fresh air. The beach has nice waves for the surfers - and there is also a surf school if you like to learn. The pool is kept... More

For me, it's the best spot for families, nice rooms, ample toilet space and toiletries with zen like ambiance, infinity pool overlooking west philippine sea, courteous, accommodating staff and attentive staff, sports bar and pool bar, restaurant food has big servings, has minimart besides it, but take note, no pets allowed. :-)

Decided to stay in this hotel as recommended by a good friend. Upon checkin, front desk agent doesn't know how to explain clearly the extra bed thing that caused an argument among us. Not even accomodating. Went to the room which is nice with a nice garden view too! Internet service is SO SLOW. Bathroom has an open glass window... More
