Aside from the good service and picturesque landscape, another thing I appreciated about Bluewater Sumilon Island Resort is the satisfactory food it prepares for guests.
Breakfast is included in the room rate and we got to choose from a Japanese, American, or Filipino plate. Best value of the lot, we feel, is the Japanese meal of grilled fish, rice, and eggs as it includes a cup of miso soup.
When we arrived at Bluewater, we were hungry and tired so we ordered from room service. The pizza and burgers were good and filling while everybody loved the lechon kawali. We also made sure to try the famous banana bread recommended by friends but it was average at best.

For dinner, we ate at The Pavilion which houses the restaurant of Bluewater Sumilon Island Resort and had a feast of mainly Filipino classics. The succulent lechon kawali from room service was such a hit that we reordered it. If there's one dish to avoid, it's the grilled tanigue because it was overcooked and not fresh.

To those wondering, pricing of food is reasonable for an exclusive island resort. Be prepared to pay Manila rates.
