On my 2nd day at the resort I already knew I wanted to extend (had booked for 2 nights only, but alas, I could not rebook my return flight. So I'll just return, hopefully sooner, and will stay longer next time!). The resort is down-to-earth paradise, the best place to unwind, to quiet a frazzled mind and recover from stress.... More

This place was a perfect island getaway - your own cottage in the middle of trees and more trees, no wifi, your own personal butler. They also have an amazing chef; everything on the menu was just lovely. The highlight of our stay would have to be the friendly hornbill, which usually pops out of nowhere when you're eating. The...

We stayed here for a few days to celebrate our anniversary. The scenery of the island is stunning and mostly untouched nature. This hotel is just gorgeous. It is the only time the picture I had of my holiday in my head matched up to the real thing. We were greeted in our beach hut by our butler, Darrell, who... More

It's a very romantic hotel perfect for couples. I wouldn't recommend it for family stay. The beach is not good, but ask them to serve the perfect food directly on the beach recommendable. You have to like going on a boat trip, it was around one hour and even in mild wind the waves where making the small boat roll.... More

I went there with my husband, my parents and my sisters with their young children. As the barge approaches, we already noticed that the resort isn't the same as it was in the pictures. It was very ugly. The beach is dirty. The resort itself is upside down. There were even people doing their laundry like they're living there and... More

Excellent service. The place is cutoff from everything else - we had spotty phone signal and depending on which hut you are staying (the resort is on a hillside) you may have to walk some before you get connected to the outside world - no wifi in the room. I guess like in all the other resorts in the area... More

I've been staying at hof since 09. Love to see how it has improved over the years without becoming "corporate" This place offers unique nature setting and the staff always does all to accommodate your needs or wishes. I wish to thank Sir Reniel/ Ms. Ging x2 (surprised me with a b-day cake and all friends who sang) and Chef... More

Very quiet and peaceful place for relaxation. My partner and I availed the 3D2N package which includes a Hillside Room and Island Hopping with Snorkeling at Talikub Island and a Personal Assistant who took care of us on our stay there. Food is quite expensive, but other than that everything was amazing. Strongly recommended for couples who wanted a relaxing... More

Me and my family went there for an outing. We missed the free boat scheduled trip as my flight was a little latter than their schedule, which costs a bit expensive (2500 pesos for one way only). We were greeted by our personal Butler (Lalang), who is so accommodating, active and friendly. The watermelon juice (i supposed got it right)... More

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
