You need to give Kuting Reef Management credit for trying to spice-up the cultural scene (that doesn't otherwise exist) in the Municipality of Macrohon, So. Leyte. Here, the only entertainment is do it yourself. That's right, the dreaded Kareoke!
So this reviewer wants to encourage Kuting Reef, while giving a useful and realistic review for the paying potential visitor. Look at this review from the perspective of one already committed to Padre Burgos for the fantastic scuba diving, and looking for a touch of cuisine and entertainment in the area.
From this perspective, Kuting Reef saves the day. There is no other entertainment offered within 20km of Padre Burgos (from Malitbog to Macrohon). So a new act each week for Fridays and Saturdays is very welcome. This reviewer has attended two nights and has really enjoyed the evening.
Kuting Reef is a beautiful 4-Star Resort, seemingly mostly empty. It can equally accommodate large business groups, private functions or romantic couples in a world class seaside renvionment. The site measures up to Bohol or Mactan resorts. But it's in the middle of nowhere.
Anyway, great facility, quite good one-man entertainment; but a lack of clientele needed to make it an "evening".
The food menu is extensive, reasonably priced for a Resort, with most items claimed to be available. But it seems to be hit and miss on quality. Pizza is with sweet Filipino style tomato sauce. Crispy Pata includes an undercooked shank bone. Spicy Gambas is not really spicy. You get the idea.
Service is friendly and helpful and suprisingly well trained.
If you are in So. Leyte, do pay a visit to Kuting Reef on a Friday or Saturday night and do your best to have a good time. Because it will be, without a doubt, the best night out you will have during your visit!
