There is a complimentary round trip Ferry ride from Davao Sta. Ana Wharf to Hof Gorei. I like the personalized Butler Service. However, going out of the resort to get around Samal Island by land is only recommended for the Adventurous type (ride at the back of motorbike. Otherwise, you will have to take the hotel tours via boat ride... More

My boyfriend and I decided to book for this resort instead of Secdea since I have read some bad reviews about that particular resort. The transportation was alright we were not late and it, staff was friendly, our butler was very accommodating, food was scrumptious and at its decent price the place is simply breathtaking. I have no complaints so... More

Prices are not really low. Place is not overwhelming. Rooms are okay. Service was more then average - but foods themselves not so. Friends of mine checked websites photos first and really got disappointed.

It was a very expensive resort given the place was really bad. It didn't look like any resort ive been to. It just looks crappy and not appealing. I wasn't even sure if the place was not yet done or already rotting. The inside of our room was OKAY. It was clean and well maintained. To be fair, If not... More

I normally stay at Pearl Farm, which is just up the coast from Hof Gorei, but this time due to Holy Week PF was booked so I tried Hof Gorei instead. Hof is a well done alternative to PF, more rustic but with nice touches such as dinner on the beach from friendly and competent staff. If you go, walk... More

My gf and I chose Hof Gorei for a romantic weekend getaway and were not disappointed. It is very romantic, secluded, and beautiful. We took over 200 photos; they have beautiful plants and flowers, animals roaming around, a pond and a beautiful pool. The view from the Chalet was breathtaking. The staff were very attentive and always available. The resort... More

While this place not be right for some, it was perfect for me. With the geese, turkeys and other animals on the resort it was just paradise. I find it interesting that someone would compare prices here with those in Davao City. How can you compare a city hotel with this resort? It isn't even apples to apples. There is... More

To begin my visit to Hof Gorei Beach Resort, we were met at Santa Ana Wharf in Davao City by the Hof Gorei outrigger boat which took us on a 50 minute ride to the resort on Samal Island. The location is remote and quiet, palm trees everywhere and the friendliest staff you can imagine. Each room has their own... More
