Can't tell if it's really good or bad
Caylabne was very isolated, which is in itself, a good and bad point in one. Travel was so not 90 minutes, it took us about 4 hours one way. But it was good in that the hustle and bustle of the city was definitely not there. It was relatively peaceful (not very, because we chanced upon the days when there were bagillions of people checked-in).
The facilities were not top-notch, considering the steep price of everything. The showers were muddy and dirty, the fixtures were broken. Even the tents were dilapidated and ripped. Admittedly, the front desk was impressive, but of what use is a pretty front desk if everything else behind it is run-down?
The water in the infinity pool was somewhat.. green. Not exactly the kind of water I would like to step into. But the deeper pool, whatever its name may be, had nice warm water that appeared to be quite clean.
Also, the beach. Black sand. I'm thinking it's not because it's naturally black but because of oil. Ick. And the green water! I couldn't see a foot into the water! We were there during the high tide, so 5 steps in and I was already waist-deep. And I'm not exactly short. And though they had a lifeguard chair, there was no one in it. Unless you count the 3-year old kid who climbed up.
The food I loved. As well as the service. Considering the droves of people in the area, the waiter was able to cater to us sufficiently. Servings were big, and flavor was wow. Sadly, the price was also... WOW. Expensive! A can of soda which sells for 18 pesos outside sold for 85 inside! But you have no choice because the nearest alternative food service is hours away. Past mountains, a military station, a wildlife reserve.
