Food prices are reasonable. Each cottage has own private helper, who are very friendly and very willing to make your stay memorable. Not crowded, we had the beach all to our selves for most of the day.

Chema's was an excellent resort. The beach area was a bit small, but the pool was an infinity pool overlooking the sea. The staff, the service, and the food were all excellent. I would stay here again.

We were looking for a very chill place and Chemas was just that. The food was good. The staff was great & I loved our little cottage overlooking the beach. It is a perfect place for a very laid back and relaxing vacation.

The place is simple, laid back and worth the trip. It has a very private vibe, with a personal touch as the staff are always ready to help or assist with whatever you need. The facilities, room and food are also fabulous. I'm already planning my next trip there.

      Relaxing your brain, body and soul in an place with your family”
      Lovely people ready to serve you at your room. Amazing place with nice facilities and a beach for you. You can see refs and fishes in a light blue ocean. You can eat nice Filipino food and have a massage to relax your body. The sunset is a paradise view to reflect about yourself. Only suggestion is that transfer to resort would be more clear at time you book as they have a boat connecting Davao mainland to Samal Islsnd.

      Okay for 1 Night”
      Journey from Port to Hotel very exhausting, better try the hotel shuttle boat. The hotel is on a small hill surrounded by trees so walking from the room to the beach is always a bit exhausting too. The hotel beach is very small and not enough space for swimming but the water is clean unlike the pool. The hotel offers no WiFi and during our stay they didn't cleaned the room. The food was nice and you can order from the room by ringing a bell which is a little bit antique in my opinion. If you decide to stay there, bring lot's of insect spray! So on a scale of 5 I give the hotel 3 points.

      Still a Memorable Stay”
      The location is just so perfect, ambiance is awesome. It will make you want to go back for more. With the food we tried so far everything taste good. The staff is just so outrageously wonderful, they are so accommodating, knowledgeable of the location and will pamper you all throughout the entire stay. Although, the accommodation rate may not be pricey, but you will realize it once you get there. There is no free drinking water, yet there is a corkage fee charged if you’ll buy and bring drinking water from outside. The food itself is good, but a little expensive as well. But overall, it is still a memorable experience. I will recommend this place to those people who have more budget to spend for their getaway.

      THE BEST!!!”
      i super enjoyed our stay in Chema’s.. location is convenient from city to samal island and they have their own boat service picking you up in waterfront hotel straight to chema’s, fare is enough for boat maintenance. Our cabana is the best, we dis enjoy the set up, the interior, the room, the bathroom and especially the little cabana where we can stay and chill outside the bedroom. The food is great, you know food resort cost something but it is worth it. The facilities of the resort is perfect, beach front, swimming pool which use sea water, those chairs and beach bed in front of the sea is relaxing. We did enjoy our stay. Just want to mention that staff in Chema’s, they are so nice and approachable. They have this positive vibe that shows respect to their guest and they are friendly. Shout out to Jenny, who welcome us in the boat deck. Shout out to Harold, who take our orders and drinks by the sea. To Irene, who serve our dinner and the pusit request, thank you so much. And of course to the person in charge in our Cabana for 2 night, thank you so much Lalang for the warm welcome, for all the request and query we asked, for the food and for assisting us until our last stay in the resort. I will recommend this to my friends, its kind of pricey if you will stay alone, better bring a group to enjoy the resort. I will be back and definitely come back to Chema’s... SOON!!!

Service was great, food was tasty especially their tinolang manok which my boyfriend loves so much. Thumbs up for their reliable and quick service.

      Mid range wonderful beach resort in samal!”
      We stayed with my family at cabana 2 (cabana with 2 bedrooms). We were so impressed with its bali-inspired rooms. :) we were almost by the beach. Quiet, serene, and private. Wouldn’t recommend the pool though, not only that the water was too cold, it’s also not child-friendly. In addition to that, we saw spits everywhere (which is gross). Value of food is okay. Slightly overpriced but delicious! Good portions as well. Rina, who was in charge with us, was prompt and kind. Overall experience was superb! Will definitely refer to family and friends when they visit Samal. :)

      Our stay was good with Chema’s. Their place is so relaxing because it is surrounded by plants/trees. Their staff is very accomodating. Their food is great too! It’s kind of expensive because it serves 1 to 2 people only but nonetheless, the taste is very good. Their bar and pool is 24/7 - which I like the most!!

      ONE with NATURE”
      they should include complimentary breakfast and free wifi during your stay. apart from that, it's all good. i like that the location is set within the heart of the forest/jungle. it's incorporated throughout the entire venue. there's a lot of areas where you can lounge and enjoy the ocean, sun rise / sunset and be with loved one, family and friends. if you're a couple, this will be perfect for you as the entire place at night is lit up with chinese lantern like bulbs that closely resemble a wedding reception. the staff service is remarkable; friendly accommodating and genuinely concerned that you enjoy your stay. be warned though, the menu can get pricey if you're a solo traveler. however, if you're a group, i think that you guys can manage. if you're the kind of traveler that likes to vlog and take IG worthy pictures, there's a lot for you to gravitate towards. there's something for everyone... as for activities, ask the staff and they'll offer activities you can do

      Great service and hospitality - wonderful surrounding - some possibilities to be better (no chance to use hangers for shirts!), but not so important. For two weeks it has been a relaxing and overhelming stay. Special thanks to Monite, our 'butler' - she has been wonderful! And be sure that we will come back.

      Beautiful and Peaceful Place BUT OVERPRICED”
      We are a total of 6 adults and 1 young child (2 years old). I booked 2 rooms for all of us and had tried to eat their restaurants from breakfast, lunch, coffee break, and dinner. CONS: The price and food QUANTITY IS EXTREMELY AWFUL. The total amount we spent on EACH meal time good for 6 adults is around P1300. Given that the price is expensive I would have expected it to be WORTH IT. Unfortunately, no. I understand that the hotel resort doesn't allow outside food but at least we would be treated to a VALUE OF OUR MONEY. Taste is good for a Filipino food. It's just all about the serving quantity and the value for it. PROS: A Bali and Thailand vibes. It's beautiful and peaceful. The BED IS AMAZING, it keeps enticing you to sleep lol. Design and architecture reflect the beauty of nature. All is perfect except for food.

      Super cool, charming, cozy, resort. Staff are great and attentive. It's hard to go around the area because it's too far, they tend to ask for a higher price. Food was not that bad. Their corkage was ridiculous! They are asking for 1,000php for a 300php bottle of whiskey. All in all it was a relaxing stay.

      Great Environment for a Relaxing Break”
      We found the locations and setting of Chema's to be great, surrounded by mature gardens and greenery, the accommodation was great, service was excellent. The number of visitors each day is limited and this keeps the resort from being too busy and crowded - it maintains the level of privacy. The only downside is the cost of the return ferry to/from the resort and if you stay overnight and want to stay past 1pm the following day you have to pay an additional day visitor rate which I think is over the top. Overall I would go back again........

      Great for a quiet escape”
      The resort is well-maintained, and staff was friendly and accomodating. TV channels are limited and no wifi provided. Our room was clean and housekeeping was efficient. They also provided extra blankets for free. Pool was relatively clean, although could be improved. Beach area was small but clean, and good for swimming. However, it can be a bit crowded on weekends as they also have day tours. In terms of food, it was a bit pricey as expected. Breakfast (coffee and drinks not included) and combo meals were good, but skip the pica picas. Also, they provide bottled water everyday to checked-in guests, but do not provide service water at their restaurants which is a con. Boat service to/from Waterfront hotel is also fairly efficient but is a separate charge. Overall, a great relaxing stay.
