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

We chose hof gorei given its promo rate in agoda. Location wise, it is remote but has a homey feel to it. Facilities are a bit wanting for repair but they make it up with kind, friendly and well trained staff. We enjoyed that they can setup your meals anywhere in their resort. The only downside is the price of... More

I chose this resort because of the great reviews I saw and they did not disappoint. I received the best service from this resort. First they gave me a free cottage upgrade, then I was assigned my personal butler who catered to my every needs. The food is a bit expensive, but then it's a resort and the portions are... More

I've seen a review of this establishment before going. It wasn't the best review, the person complained about not having all the modern, and newer amenities. This place is a paradise as far as I'm concerned. You will have to climb some hillside steps. The housing is not the newest, but more then comfortable. I can only describe it as... More

You can't bring your own food here and their menu prices are extremely expensive. I hope that the prices could be more reasonable.Although, the place and the rooms are relaxing but it's not that special.

We went to Hof Gorei for a quick R&R. I and my friend wanted to go to somewhere near the beach and some people said that Samal Island is the place to go. Since we were on a budget trip, we looked for a nice place which had value for money. We got the Leaning Hut which is very near... More
