Villa Amparo Garden Beach Resort - Newest Attraction in Samal Island

Samal Island is very famous and if you're from Davao City, it's usually the first destination for family and friends outdoor trips. Spending weekend with my friends, we decided to try Villa Amparo Garden Beach Resort.

I was amazed with the photos I saw and according to many, Villa Amparo Garden Beach Resort is a very nice, elegant and modern type resort. Upon seeing from my very eye, Villa Amparo Garden Beach Resort is indeed a great and elegant resort. The islet they have was like with the Pearl Farm Beach Resort

What we did was first made a reservation just to be sure that they will accommodate us when we get there. The security is good, they have a guard at the entrance. We stroll around and found many nice spots for picture taking. They have many amenities that you could enjoy.

I like the Boardwalk most and the upper deck view. The Boardwalk is a man-made islet and up in the deck, you can see the whole view of the resort. It's overlooking.

They have a bar & restaurant with videoke machine. Videoke is 150.00 per hour. They also have a Japanese garden, boat dock, they have the Pavilion, function rooms for conference and big gathering events, they have kids’ sand box, grill area, fishing area, water sports facilities, and a camp site.

You can experience unlimited use of water sports for only 150.00. Vest is already included. Vest only for rent is also available for 50.00.

The closed rooms are very nice and clean. With clean bedding, TV inside each rooms. Closed cottages are vary from non air conditioned to air conditioned rooms. The comfort and shower rooms are also very clean. Looks like it was just recently opened but they were already open to public since last year 2011.

Additional points to security because they have a lot of CCTV cameras. From the outside of each cottages, the bar and resto and up to the boardwalk.

villa amparo is a nice place relaxing, wala akong masabi sa place, but for the information of the manager or the owner please you have to visit your resort from time to time so that you will know how your supervisor run your business.imagine even we want to order something then nasa reception area sila sasabihan ka na close na, mga around 10pm pa yun, that your service is 24 hrs, then may another guest dumating mga 12 midnight sabi ng supervisor they will not entertain dahil wala daw house keeping, madali lang naman ang maglinis at dapat before dumating ang guest ninyo booked or not yet booked your rooms are ready.and you should have the welcome drinks.hindi ko kayo sinisiraan this is to improve your service if you will listen.and then we want to have an early breakfast but what happen they will not serve you kase 7am pa daw sila mag serve, that is not right.dapat isipin nyo ang mga guest ninyo should be treated well at walang masabi sa inyo kase they will advertise your resort.kaya nga nag business kayo para kumita kaso what happen sa stay namin in your resort is parang ayaw nyo kumita ng pera.wala din kayong drinking water sa mga rooms ninyo.mga tv nyo sira, sabihan pa kami ng receptionist wag daw pindutpindotin ang remote for what purpose ang remote na binigay nyo?ang place nyo super sayang but the service you rendered very poor, remember your business is service, so it should be the best service para yung customer yung mag advertise and they will come back.i hope next time i come back may improvement na sa service ninyo.

I'm dying to go to Villa Amparo Garden Beach Resort! I can go there alone and have my alone time. My problem is where to park my car in Sasa wharf. I don't want to bring the cars since I'll be paying 270 one way. And the parking area there is exclusive for Holiday resort only! Sigh..
