We'e stayed there for more than a week. Reasons why me and my family hates the hotel because: 1.) When they cooked adobong manok for breakfast, we saw the chicken as hilaw. As in raw food. The outer part looks like cooked just because of the toyo. It still has bloods (color red and black) which means it ain't well... More

As I was here for a forum, I got to see the whole hotel. Yes, it was still undergoing renovations, but I find their renovations slow, as the lobby, toilets, and several others remain partially fixed. What they could have done was to completely fix it by phase, not having an incomplete makeover all over the place. The conference room... More

We stayed for the weekend & tried this hotel while we're in Surigao City. It happened to be under renovation at the moment. But it shouldn't be the reason why the tiles was not "shiny" upon entering. Anyway, I asked to check their room choices before deciding to pick Executive Matrimonial. The only available was in the 3rd floor and... More

After my flight was cancelled and getting stranded in Surigao due to a level 1 typhoon warning, I checked into what appeared to be a nice hotel. Quickly learned the Wifi did not work on the 2nd floor, so I needed to go to the lobby for internet access. Then after returning to my room I needed to contact the... More

Well, approaching two years since my previously listed review of the Gateway and with changes afoot I feel it time to post a further review as much for the benefit of the Gateway management, if they actually care that is, as well as the travelling public. Firstly the new restaurant, compared to the old one, is stunning and with new... More

Have stayed here before and it was OK - but with the renovations at present its a nightmare. Overpriced for suite at 3000 PHP - view was scaffolding, balcony covered in concrete debris, pool dirty and strewn with building materials - you can watch a health and safety nightmare from your window with the constructions going on - aircon works...

This was our tenth visit. The hotel is undergoing large extensions and the surrounding grounds certainly show it. We were in the suite room which compared to Butuan was certainly over priced. It was however huge and even accommodated our extended family. Amenities in the room were sparse and the air conditioner while good couldn't be adjusted, mind you the... More

Stayed here for 3D/2N (Nov 29-Dec1), few days before typhoon Pablo unleashed it's fury on this province. First of all, this hotel is very close (5 mins.) to Surigao Airport. Getting here is not a problem, they have free van transfer to/from the airport. We were checked in a standard room because all other rooms were occupied because there was... More
