Although is hotel is currently undergoing a major rebuilt it also needs to retrain all of its staff as well. The menus and wine list also need a major revamp. Noise from function held at this hotel reverberate thought this establishment with little regard for it guests that may be staying for reasons other than functions.

We recently held our wedding reception at Hotel Pontefino Batangas City. Food was excellent on food tasting but the actual food they served on the reception was terrible. They don't even know how to serve champagne! I mean seriously, who serves warm champagne??? Room accommodation is good but a bit pricy. Receptionists are slow and rude. Booked the rooms months...

That's what they say it is and I really think so too, although that's not saying a lot given the limited number of hotels in the city. We stayed here with my family, but my husband and I had a room for ourselves. We stayed at the 1st floor, which is one floor BELOW the hotel lobby. I believe this... More

Back again after a few months and stayed for one week. Disappointing that there was not even anyone to welcome you at the lobby or at least open the door. No welcome drinks unlike before. Noticed however that there is now an ATM machine next to the lift doors and a security guard to keep out unwanted visitors. Breakfast is... More

I have been here several times already for luncheon or dinner, but my first time to check-in with my wife and 3 kids, early this month. Staff - friendly and courteous. We are checked in fast since we have reservation already. Lobby - this is what I like, ambiance is good, sofa is nice. Room - clean, huge, average interior,... More

I spent a single night at the hotel and was asured by colleagues that it's the best place in town. The room was clean, remarkable large with regular basic furniture. Due to some traffic restrictions the hotel is slightly remote located and if caught in rush hour traffic or rain an hour from city center is easily passed. Breakfast is... More

Stayed overnight with my family in two adjoining rooms. The people at the door and the front desk were nice and very helpful. The room is generally ok and so was the decor though the position of the tv set was weird. The bathroom, however, is hideous. The metal fixtures could really use a lot of scrubbing; the vent/exhaust was... More

The Pontefino is situated in Batangas and due to a bridge being taken out throughout the last typhoon has caused chaos with the traffic. I was working at the Port of Batangas and the trip to work took about 10 minutes (no traffic) the return trip took up to an hour and a half. Aside that, the rooms are large... More

Stayed here a few times for work. Large rooms (but request non-smoking to get a NS room, otherwise a good chance your room will stink of old smoke) but average decor. Staff very friendly and helpful, good security. Breakfast buffet is a joke and not worth paying for (Management please take note!) It really comes down to the friendliness and... More
