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

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
