I booked an Executive room facing the ocean thinking that it's really executive :) What a mistake! It overlooks a very busy and very noisy street full of tri-cycles (the only trasport in the city). Curtains had smudges of black in them. A wooden and very small room. I cancelled the same day and left!

Location is great! The hotel is right in front of the sea 'with its beautiful sunrise'. Other than this, the hotel is terrible. 1. Small room. Little space to move about. No table even for your lap top. 2. Small bathroom. Always wet, because there is very little 'covering' between shower room and the other part of the bathroom. 3.... More

The hotel is right in the middle of the seaside walk way. Very clean and safe. You feel you are in a classy hotel. Price is excellent for central location. The bar and restaurant are low cost. Friendly check in desk. Very important. Privacy. Enjoy Dumaguete!! Wonderful city.

When we started planning our trip to Dumaguete, we thought of getting a hotel closer to the airport. But a friend suggested that we book a hotel along Rizal Blvd. La Residencia Al Mar has great location, right along Rizal Blvd. If you are coming from the Dumaguete Port, the hotel is within walking distance or a very short pedicab...

La Residencia Almar is perfectly located on the boulevard offering sea views if you score a room in the front. We were lucky enough to have scored one of these while our friend had a room with no windows. Room was very small but nicely fitted. Bathroom ample space with rain shower and hot water. Outside dinning area was great... More

Upon check in we were not asked for identification, so thatmade me think of hotel security. There was no safety box in room, but we were given one upon request.We were given a room at the back near the fire escape, which was just an open gate. The rooms were clean, although very small. Water was slow in bathroom and... More

La Residencia Almar is a small hotel that gives you good value for your money. The hotel has been newly renovated. It provides good service with the staff being very friendly and always try to accommodate whatever little requests. Best of all is its located at Dumaguete's happening place - the Rizal Boulevard. I always go back to this hotel... More

Staying there a month for biz Small hotel, old house converted to about 10 hotel rooms. It's right on the boulevard, so it can be loud if there's a parade (and there's always a parade, there' must be 72 holidays in the Philippines). Clean, well-kept, and the staff is very courteous. Pedro M's comments are correct, if the room is... More

Do NOT stay in any rooms away from the front of the hotel that overlook the boulevard. They are tiny with no windows, poor design (no end tables or benches upon which to stow your luggage), and a bathroom shower with no door/curtain which means water all over the floor the first time you use the shower. Did I mention... More
