Pro: Great pool, great food and friendly staff and owner, good value. Con: Location (where are we?), old spooky room, outdated building. Overall, if you want to have just a quick hotel to sleep at night cause you spent most of your time travel around (or like us island hopping), then I would recommend this hotel. It was nothing fancy,... More

It's a place with a combination of outdated premises, excellent food, room buildings placed with their back to the swimming pool witch doesn't give good impression, beautiful around 30 m long swimming pool, very bad management never replying any emails and very bad ar organising tours. Don't believe the information on their website. At the same time very helpful staff.... More

This hotel I think is fine if you just need a night to stay in between travels, or to catch an early morning flight. The rooms are ok, nothing flash, but comfortable. The suite villas are big and can sleep up to 6 people since they have three queen sized beds. The location of the hotel isn't great. It is... More

The photos they posted on trip advisor and their website are just deceiving! This is just the worst hotel we've ever been. The rooms are disgusting, old and smelly! The beds were uncomfortable and the toilet was horrible! The staff were all clueless! They even charge you for the airport transpo to and fro, where in other hotels are offering... More

I booked their deluxe room over two months ago via Agoda. Then I get an email yesterday (a litle bit more than a week before our trip) from Agoda saying that my reservation has been canceled...with no explanation as to why. To make things worst, the Royal Oberai thinks they are making a good professional move by putting me in... More

This review has been a long time coming. Sorry for the late review. We spent 2 nights in this resort hotel April 2013 and we've been gushing to our friends about this place ever since. The owner and her husband made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. So friendly and easy to talk with that we never... More

This hotel is well suited for those who wish to relax and do absolutely nothing. My wife and I spent two days there before heading to El Nido. The staff are good and the food although not wonderful is good to eat. What makes this place is the pool, it is well maintained and clean and sitting in the water... More
