Very Good8.0
Excellent Service and Location
Excellent service! The only concern i had was pool was also available and were used by all those who purchased a day pass to be at the resort. Aa a result, us paying guests couldn’t even enjoy this ammenity because they were full of the all day pass people :(

Magnificent view and Relaxing Experience
Overall, this is a beautiful resort and definitely the best thing to wake up to. The view is just amazing and the service is great. The mango shakes here are great too. We stayed in a deluxe room and it is very big. The room is beautiful and I love the big bathroom and shower. Great infinity pool and great food. We really enjoyed our stay. The only complaints I have is the sand bar beach gets too crowded from the people who are here for only the day. I wish there was a part of the beach that can be exclusive to guests only. Also, if you head over to the other side of the island, there's another beach area but the ocean current is very strong so have to be careful. The workers on this part of the island gives uncomfortable stares to my girlfriend though. All the workers everywhere else on the island don't really stare. We saw the glamping site and honestly, the tent is like a regular big tent. Usually, glamping is a fancier tent so we are glad we did the deluxe room.

Worth the trip to Oslob/Bluewater Sumilon
We had an amazing time at Bluewater Sumilon! We loved the boutique resort atmosphere with only 31 guestrooms, the tranquility on the island, the turquoise blue water surrounding the island. We thoroughly enjoyed snorkelling at their Marine Sanctuary, the mountain bike riding and just enjoying the beautiful scenery from their infinity pool. The service was very good and staff were very attentive to our needs. The only negative feedback is the day tours... people come to the island and use facilities which are meant to be just for in-house guests. It's a bit annoying especially when the price difference between in-house guests and day tours is massive. Overall, a little bit expensive but worth it and we recommend it! We will be back! Oh and the whaleshark watching is so close!! But we recommend you take a special boat trip early in the morning as it was already packed when we took the 9am boat and had to wait hours!

Beautiful island, overpriced resort
Such an amazing beautiful island, a refreshing getaway from the city life. The resort is the entire island so expect to be nurtured by nature. Staff is amazing, from the checkin to the dining to the bar - Cebuano hospitality at its best. I must say however, that the resort is highly overpriced. It's not intended for the locals hence mostly foreigners stay as in house guests and locals will avail of the day use. We booked for their Premium Deluxe Room which says up to 4 pax can stay. On the day we arrived, I brought along another friend but was told they would charge PHP 4,500 for extra person. I wish booking sites would specify these details. Nothing much to do at the resort though but that's exactly the point of being away from the usual grind. Will do day tour next time as the island is usually the next destination after you swim with the whalesharks in Oslob. Amazing staff - shoutout to the bartenders who gave us free mojito drinks on the house.
