Friendly staff at the front desk
If you get the Deluxe Poolside room, well, the pool is literally just a few steps away. 😀
Baroto Poolside Bar on the other end
We got a Deluxe Poolview room at the second floor.
There are a total of 54 rooms with 46 Deluxe Rooms (21 Poolside and 21 Poolview), 4 Family Lofts, 3 Honeymoon Villas and 1 Family Villa.
Family Loft: A two-storey accommodation with bedroom loft (inset). Ideal for families of 4 persons.
If you want more space and privacy, they have 3 Honeymoon Villas with its own dipping pool and a Family Pool Villa; 2 bedrooms (1 room with 1 king-sized bed and 1 room with 2 queen-sized beds), both with its own freestanding tub with TV, and a dipping pool and sundeck at the middle!
Clockwise: 2 queen-sized beds, freestanding tub with TV and private dipping pool and sun deck
The restaurant is a bit of a walk from the rooms, but the golf cart can always take you there if you’re too lazy. It’s just a 2-3 minute leisurely walk anyway. A nice way to burn off some calories after every meal. 😉
Lush foliage add to the serenity of the resort
Unlike in Maribago, there’s no in-house spa, but you can have a massage at one of two cottages or request for an in-room massage.
While it’s true the resort does not have its own beach, they have a marine sanctuary where you can snorkel and/or ride the glass-bottom boat. They also have a free scheduled shuttle service that can bring/fetch you to and from Alona Beach which is just 10-15 minutes away. Additionally, you can sign up for their stand up paddle board lessons. Too bad we were not able to try these activities because of the bad weather brought about by the typhoon.
If you’ve already seen the countryside, you can also try the variety of free and paid activities the resort offers like exploring Panglao island by bicycle or go on an offroad adventure by ATV/Quad Bikes. Kids will enjoy the Arts & Crafts lessons and moms can learn new dishes through their Cook With the Chef sessions. Surely, there is always something for everyone.
Sit back and relax at these loungers facing the sea
Access to the marine sanctuary at low tide
More than the facilities and activities, what we loved most was the excellent service. Everyone was very nice and friendly, and is always genuinely interested if we’re having a good time. We really felt at home here.
