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.

Great place for quiet, not great for anything else
The location is great to avoid the crowds. Hard for supplies such as food for a full menu. When the first 2 things I wanted to order were not available, I started by sending them to the kitchen to let me know what was not available. I had a long commute to get to the island, so I was a little sick. May have something to do with my irritation. I would avoid going there after a storm because all the trails are blocked by fallen trees. Being on an island makes everything more expensive, be warned about damaging the room key that has a wooden key tag. Remove it when you get there or you could pay 1500 for a replacement. but I guess all places these days are in it for the money anyways. the food costs more than the actual room did. if you are going to Oslob for the whale sharks and staying here, pay when you get to the hotel it will save you money.

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.

Relaxing & Adventureful Island Resort
It was a series of unfortunate events for us at the start... service-wise, it was truly disappointing! But as I am a travel adviser & reviewer, I know I should not give up easily (though I wanted to!). I therefore made sure to talk to the resort manager so he is aware of what was happening in the island resort. Our family vacation-con-birthday-weekend-getaway was as it should be after that...BLISSFULLY RELAXING & MOST ENJOYABLY HITCH-FREE! Kudos to Mr. EJ Barretto, resident overall resort manager, you did a fine great job in making your guests feel secure, cared for & COMFORTABLE! I MUST also give special mention to the DINING STAFF... THEY WERE SUPERB!!! A truly lovely Birthday treat for me! :) I highly recommend this island resort especially with their ongoing project of separating areas & activities of their staying guests from their day tour guests. Not that it mattered to me & my family...we practically had the island to ourselves and the day tourists were pleasant people with relaxation in mind like us! More power to Management of Sumilon Bluewater Island Resort!

Great for luxury relax
Food is not amazing as expected. Hotel could help arrange the Oslob tour. The picking up from island to island, airport to hotel is very helpful. The beverage in mini bar is almost 2x to the other hotels.
