By far the best place to be in calgayog. The ceriaco is nice but costly. Staff is excellant and the pool clean. food is good but gets boring after a long stay. Although close to lots of good restaurants.

The room and the service were ok but they would not accept credit cards. I paid around PHP 3,000 per night and would not recommend to travel with a lot of cash in your pocket in a country like the Philippines. The pool was crowded with guests from outside and we felt like in a cage. You have to pay... More

Their rooms are a jawdropping cheap cost. The rooms cost from 250-2000.00 per night. They also has swimming pool and you can also go kayaking. If you are renting their rooms you do not need to pay for the entrance to the pool and if you are an outsider then you need to pay 50.00 plus 100.00 for the cottage.... More

We have been many times guests at Marju, but this time we found it not so good anymore. Sure the rooms are still good value (1100 php for room 6 in the court) and the service is caring. But the pool's cleanliness really was not good, as if the filtration system was not working. Also the restaurant food was so-so... More

Having viewed other travellers comments, I chose Marju Krisel over the Ciriaco hotel in Calbayog for my first couple of nights. I was a first time visitor to the region having travelled from London and was wanting somewhere pre-booked. The 1500 pesos a night for room 37 was reasonable but I found it a rude awakening to learn the hotel... More

We stayed for 2 nights, the room was lovely, very clean, big and modern with aircon, cable tv and wifi. There is a range of rooms to suit all budgets. The resort is very quiet with a large swimming pool and excellent restaurant, which is very reasonable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The resort is on the river,... More

Our friend recommended us Marju Krisel and although we have passed it countless times, we have never been staying here before. Now we thought we give it a try and we do not regret it. As soon as our Grand Tours van turned in from the gates, there were two guys carrying our bags to the reception. In the reception... More

This property,has an excellent restaurant with delicious food at reasonable,prices. Rooms average but reasonably maintained. Swimming pool had a lot,of dirt in one section. Good ambience although located a few kilometres out of town. Compared with what is available in Calbayog this hotel is a good choice.
