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

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
