my wife and myself stayed there , for 6 nights, begin january 2013.
obviously, the first reason to go there is diving; and this one is very good ( healthy corals, lot of marine life; for those who like that, a very nice muck dive just in front of the resort ).
the dive center has for the moment 2 boats and will bring you everywhere in Anilao, according to what you want to see , and following your own schedule; if needed, you can rent an equipment perfectly maintained.
this, only 2h30 min by car from Manila; no domestic airplane to take.
the road has now been repaired; so that the trip is very pleasant; if asked, the hotel will provide you the transfer in a nice van, for a fair fee.
now,…why sea’s spring resort?
the resort is located at sea level; you don’t have to go up and down many steps, what is the case for many other hotels in Anilao.
the rooms are large, all with nice seaview, and have TV, fridge and airco.
greens and pools are correctly maintained.
you see many children here: they appreciate the slides and the large pools; for this reason, this place is very convenient for families.
last, I ‘ve rarely seen a crew reacting so quickly to what you ask; whatever you wish, the employees try to respond to it immediately and efficiently.
then, ok, all is not perfect in the hotel.
it should improve some points, mainly related to the food; breakfast is not the best; and menu could be more ” occidental ” oriented;…but, if you ask something not being on the menu, they will do it for you, when possible; for example, we asked to add schrimps and mangos to the salad they have on the menu; it gave us an excellent lunch, because the food is totally fresh.
also, they are ready to listen to your suggestions, and take them into account: I told them it was not very good to have only coffee in powder; the day after,…real coffee was present for breakfast!
so, to summarize, this resort gives you a very good quality for the price asked.
Room Tip: all rooms have seaview and are close to the parking.
