Despite its inclusions, several netizens were still complaining about its expensive price.
“Matindi ang presyo, abroad ba to?half a million pesos for 2 days!!!ano kaya meron sa resorts nato, tama yung comment nung isa- may fountain of youth daw sa loob ng resorts,” netizen Dennis said.
However, some netizens said that not everyone could afford to rent the whole resort and the business was targeting a different market.
“I’ve had reactions like some people here about how high prices of some resorts are. But then after a while, I’ve come to realize, if I react in such a manner then I am not their target market. People who can’t afford it are simply not their market. We have to accept that reality, instead if making negative comments. Not unless, the resort looks so ordinary, then that’s another story,” netizen Winn commented.
The resort was also offering accommodation for smaller groups, including a room family room for 2 adults and 2 children for P8,100-22,9500 a night,
