San Remigio maybe three hours away from Cebu City, and it is one of the visited towns in Central Visayas — in addition to this, Elegant Beach Resort, one of the most popular and preferred resorts in northern Cebu.
Why Elegant Beach Resort?
Elegant Beach Resort was featured in sugbo.ph, with promising reviews, my team was captivated with the resort experience. However, this contradicts on what’s being advertised.
Disclaimer. This is my honest review for Elegant Beach Resort and my intentions are bringing awareness to its owners and to their future guest.
How to get there?
If you wish to take public transportation, go to North Bus Terminal, then look for a bus going to San Remigio. Your drop off point should be in a school in Brgy. Tambongon near Aqua Water Refilling Station.
Bus fare is PHP150-160 and from there, ride a motorbike going to the Elegant Beach Resort, with a PHP30-40 per person.
- Air-conditioned rooms.
- Swimming pool.
- Children’s Playground.
- Parking lot.
- Common kitchen.
How was the Customer Service?
Staffs were not accommodating as expected, no short explanation where their amenities are, or how we can get them if we need their support. Clearly, they are not trained yet.
Why do this matter?
— Simply, your business won’t last if you don’t have any customers, and the first impression matters as advertised.
We had 3 rooms reserved and all of them are fully air-conditioned. Here is the price sheet below:
Double Room: PHP 1,960 per night, good for 2pax
Triple Room: PHP 2,185 per night, good for 3pax
Dorm Type 1: PHP 4,000 per night, good for 8pax
Dorm Type 2: PHP 5,000 per night, good for 10pax
— Excess charge is PHP 350 per pax per night
— Check-in: 2PM / Check-out: 12NN
Swimming pool and Jacuzzi.
Clean and relaxing pool, until 10 PM use only.
You have a lot of space for your car, this will not be a problem for sure.
Spacious kitchen, with these price range below:
10 pax below: PHP 1,000 per day
11-20 pax below: PHP 1,500 per day
21 pax above: PHP 3,000 per day
Mini Watch Tower
How was the beach expectation?
If you have seen sugbo.ph photos, you should be familiar with these two:
Promising right? However, these were not the case, here are the shots we had along the shoreline.
As I walked along the shore with disappointments, I found a stream, and this might be the culprit for that garbage washed along the beach line. Here are the photos below:
How was the entire experience?
— Elegant Beach Resort has potential, it just happened staffs were not trained for Customer Service yet and no dedicated maintenance on their beach line. I hope this review will help both resort owners and their future guest.
For the Resort owner of Elegant Beach Resort, it would be best if you could listen to your previous guest Google Reviews, here are some entry below:
