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

Overall is a nice and good place to stay. Not over priced and really quiet. The beach is not so good especially at low tide and not always clean. The proximity of a small village does not help indeed. The pool is nice but definitely this is not a infinity pool at all. Also there is no shallow area for... More

Stayed for 3 days and 2 nights with family. Spend my fiance's birthday in this resort. Its a great stay with family. The staff we're very good in surprising my fiance and our little boy with balloons and cake. The island hopping and lunch was superb, great way to relax in the beach. The resort will pick you up in... More

Without a doubt the best part is the butler...unpretentious,friendly, excellent service. The island is really best for those living in Davao and want a get away. Compared to the rest of the Phillipines there is little worth going here for. The resort is isolated, so you are stuck here unless you do their very expensive excursions. I was uncomfortable with...

I had an overnight stay here with my friend dated October 19-20, 2014. Let me share our experience: Booking - was efficient, did it through Agoda, received an email confirmation and was contacted right away by their reservations manager regarding the boat transfer from Sta. Ana Wharf to the resort. Transfer - was done efficiently, we didnt have to wait.... 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
