Been here for our company outing last year and it was awesome! May 2014 (don't mind the date of travel…. no option for May 2013) - Service - excellent! they will attend to you quickly and excellently. - Food - not that extravagant but taste really good. And serving was unlimited! - Accommodation - was so simple but very clean.... More

It's a long, but enjoyable boat ride from Davao to where Hof Gorei is located on Samal Island. Once there we were greeted with a drink and shown to our cottage. Our cottage was clean, private and very comfortable. The pool was crystal clear and set in a romantic setting. Our butler Raymond was very good, he set up a... More

Where do I start? First, you are assigned your butler, who brings breakfast, lunch and dinner for you. You have a bell to ring if you ever need his/her assistance. Our butler was very accommodating and very polite to us. We stayed for two days. Him and a fellow co-worker were even nice enough to take us on the bikes... More

Late review. My partner and I stayed March, 2014 and it was a blast! The right place to be if you're looking for a great place to relax away from the city life. Our butler Hannah was very helpful all throughout our stay there. However, on our arrival we noticed that there were seaweeds along the shore and it was... More

My fiance and I booked a beach front bungalow. Woke up with someone in the room in the middle of the night and chased him out. They robbed us and the hotels sentiments are we should have had the door locked. The food made me sick, its very sub par. I'm wondering who labeled this a three star resort? Maybe... More

We only stayed overnight with my parents but we had a good stay overall. If there's one thing that sets this apart from the other resorts in Samal Island, they assign you a personal butler the moment you arrive at the dock. Check-in and check-out are all handled by your assigned butler so no need to go to a front... More

Being in an island, you already are captive, but with this hotel, you are even more so since access is only via the sea, so be prepared to really laze away the day inside the resort if you don't plan to do any of the activities that they offer (which you have to pay for extra). The personal butler assigned... More

This is the place to really enjoy getting away from it all with that special someone. The Personal Assistant makes it so nice!!! No noise other than that you want. Nature smiled upon this place. It was worth traveling 20,000 miles (round trip) twice so far!!! Not super fancy but very adequate. Fantastic!!!

This is the ideal place for people who want a relaxing vacation, without the "party crowd". We stayed here last December 2013 for 2 nights and I really enjoyed my stay. If I'm not mistaken we paid 5,700 php for our 2 night-stay. The room was clean, the view from our room was beautiful, we had a personal butler/customer-service assistant... More

i went to Davao last 2011 and it was really beautiful. We stayed at Hof Gorei in Samal Island. This beach resort is heaven! My friends and I were joking that we want to have dinner with candle light by the beach - they granted our request by surprise. The owner and the staff are very accommodating. There are lots... More
