We were escorted to our room using a mini cab; we checked out the room, turned the A/C and TV on. The bathroom was the 1st “failure” we encountered (yeah there’s more). The faucet near the sink is leaking and the toilet is also busted, water keeps flowing even when not flushed. We called for assistance so we could transfer to another room but the person in the front desk told us that they would just send someone to check the leak. 2nd failure came when we asked 2 extra towels, toiletries and linens since there were 4 of us. It took them more than an hour to do all those things.
We wanted to stroll and take pictures but we didn’t know where we were headed to. They didn’t have a brochure or a map inside the room, and so we went back to the front desk to ask for one. dang!
How about trying surfing lessons, pool basketball, golf lessons, wall climbing, rappeling, and zip? Exciting huh? That’s ACCORDING TO THE BROCHURE… But hey! We couldn’t find them. We asked the guard and one guy who watches the kayak and they said it’s not available yet… probably it’s for summer 2010. boo hoo!
We went kayaking and swimming and that’s it… no wave pool because they only operate at a certain schedule. The buzzy river is closed for repainting. haizzz!
One thing I liked about CME is that you can place your order and have your food delivered anytime you want except after 9pm when the kitchen is already closed. This is nice, especially that the villas are not so near the restaurants.
We had tinolang manok, lechon kawali, chicken and pork adobo, sinigang na baboy. My friend ordered sweet and sour fish fillet but they brought fish fillet steak tagalog. When asked about what happened to the sweet and sour fish we ordered, the staff said it wasn’t available. ok? so… they decided to bring another fish dish anyways. Was that good or bad?
Food was oily and salty but bearable, just drink lots of water. hahaha… we had dessert to have something sweet in our palate. Thumbs up for the fruit salad and almond lychee. Good thing there’s still something enjoyable about this place.
I don’t think there’ll be a 2nd time here in CME. Spending Php3300 for 2, plus Php700 for each additional person for a lousy service is like watching your money go down the drain.
