Zamboanguita|9.27km from downtownWe came here spontaneously, as boats couldn't go to Apo Island (were we intended to stay) due to typhoon warning. Once I arrived I read some of the mixed reviews (english and german) and was curious at how it would be. Let me tell you, all the negative points that were mentioned seem to be fixed. We had a great time and I'm going to go into the different points, which in hindsight seem laughable and way off: - the staff was very friendly - there were no rules/fines for not bringing drinks or food from outside. Also, they provide you with free water, so you can fill up your bottles. - the owner was very nice. Greeted us everytime, updated us about the typhoon status and asked about our plans to make sure if there's something he could do for us. Hence, he organized that we could join other guests, that were going to Apo on a daytrip, to make the one-way trip there more convenient and affordable for us. - also said owner did not eat dinner at the same time as the guests. So there's no truth (anymore?) to the story that you're not able to sit at 'his table'. - a german review mentioned that there are only 4 sun loungers to lay on. Now there are 8. - same german review mentioned that you're getting massaged on those sun loungers. We didn't have a massage, but other guests did. Don't know where, but definitely not on the sun loungers. - another german review mentioned that it's getting hot in the rooms... There's a fan on the ceiling (if you don't want to use the aircon). The resort is as well equiped to ensure a comfortable night, as no other we've stayed at (in 2 months in the Philippines). - Someone complained about the "slums" next door. First off all, I despise such a dismissive term. It's a normal fisher settling and there's no need to be afraid. If you're afraid of such 'slums', don't come to the Philippines. If you're still concerned, don't be. Now there's a security guard with a shotgun patroling in the evening and at night. - also, the karaoke, roosters and dogs are something you'll encounter pretty much anywhere. We didn't notice it nearly as much here, as we did on other places. Again, if you can't handle it, don't come to the Philippines.
