The service and stay was overall amazing. It was a honeymoon and they stayed at one of the villas. They were treated like VIP’s. Good job!

Very nice and beautiful place. wish we could stay more than 1 night there. However, due to nature environment, there's a lot of insects so bring your insect repellent along

This is a breathtaking resort on a breathtaking island with breathtaking views. I realize I sound like a snake oil salesman, however I am not exaggerating. If it's within budget, you will not regret a single night - but preferably at least 2-3 - spent on this island. By far the most mesmerizing island in all of the Visayas. Bluewater Resort owns the island and their service and attention to guests is fantastic. Their rooms are spacious and modern as are their bathrooms. The view from the room is unforgettable. The resort offers a lot of activities from snorkeling in 3 different areas, diving, trekking with 4 different treks with varying difficulties, free bike rentals for a bike trek track, fishing, kayaking, infiniti pool, and much more. Their breakfast and dinner buffets were great and though most would find their nightly price steep, if you consider all of which is included and the locale of where you are staying, it really isn't that much. The experience and luxury supercedes any concerns about the worthiness of the cost. Not to mention, it's a SUPER CONVENIENT place for whale shark watching. They arranged literally everything. Thanks guys!!!

Beautiful place but a bit overpriced for the Philippines. The room was clean but we did have a cockroach and huge spider in the room. The staff was great, and responded immediately to take care of the spider and sprayed the room for us. The food is good, the property is beautiful. They do a great job at making sure the day trippers stay out of the infinity pool and areas they are not supposed to be. There are security standing buy all day to keep the people who are not staying at the resort out of the areas that are for in house guests only. It is a bit frustrating that the day trippers are at the sandbar ALL day long (from 7am to 5pm,) but we knew that before we booked. We needed to change our dates on a nonrefundable booking and the resort was gracious enough to allow us a change with no fee. I would recommend this hotel, and stay here again, just be aware the sandbar is almost always occupied. BUT, the infinity pool is fabulous and has an amazing view. THANK YOU BLUEWATER SUMILON for a great trip. Your staff is professional, friendly, and always wanting to help for anything you need.

Good 6,0
Great place for a family and younger people. Beach is nice when high tide,staff really tries hard to make you happy. Plenty of things to do for kids. This place is not good if you have a heart or lung condition, you have to climb many steps to get everywhere and no handicapped accessibility. Disappointed on the massage, did not offer tea or water afterwards. I think its overrated and very expensive for what you pay for, breakfast and dinner have few selections
