Summer Cruise has only 6 rooms and this is why it is necessary to book in advance. You can stay in a tent or you can have a room. Personally, I liked the second-floor room where you can wake up with a spectacular view of the ocean without getting out of bed. It’s awesome! But since it was a full packed weekend, we were assigned to a tent near the kitchen.
Different rooms are additionally accessible on the ground floor which I likewise like as a result of the creativity and the detail they bring to each room. Other rooms have their very own washroom and bath, while others have a common restroom.
A vacation is never complete without checking out the food. They would normally put up a board in the common area in which the menu of the day is written.

I highly recommend you order from their eatery! Why? Since they are delightfully arranged and have a decent gourmet expert who can transform a typical dish into a throbbing artful culmination! Every one of their dinners is likewise presented with soup as a side dish. On the off chance that there are numerous visitors in the resort, rather than placing order individually, you can likewise make the most of their buffet lunch for Php 350.00.
They have drinks in the resort but no alcohol. You can bring it along with you though and enjoy the night with it.
