The link to the official website of the 34th Annual 2016 Philippines AA National Convention in Dumaguete City on February 5, 6, and 7 is http://aaphilconv2016.weebly.com/ . The venue is the Bethel Guest House, right on the waterfront at the lovely Rizal boulevard. Besides being a great hotel at a super location, they have been very supportive and generous towards...

This is a cheerful, clean guest house and located right next t the main promenade. We turned up and found 2 rooms which was handy. Friendly staff and clean room. Not very lavish but it was very cheap.

I agree that there are some maintenance issues, this being an "old" hotel compared to the newer high rises in Dumaguete. But these are trumped by the excellent service they provide - from the bellhops, front desk, service crew and the waiters. There is nothing you ask them that they cannot provide. Our trip to Apo Island was cancelled because... More

Clean but bath room is lousy no bath tub and small. Food at the cafe downstairs is great especially for breakfast There is no bar here and seems kind of old fashioned and needs upgrading but staff are pleasant and location is good

A nice hotel in a good location which even dispite the no alcohol policy was a good place to stay. However I found on my last visit that the refrigerator did not cool and the hot water was tepid on the 5th floor premium room I had. Maintenance tried to cover up and said that the 8KW water heater was... More

The hotel is right across the sea and one can enjoy the sea breeze from the boulevard at all times of the day. During the early mornings, one can join the locals jogging or dancing zumba. At night, one can visit Dumaguete's restaurant strip on which the hotel is located. The hotel is very clean and eco-friendly. Guests are given... More

A good place to dine in @ Cafe Filomena, hotel's restaurant. It is a straightforward kind of dining where you will just choose the dish you want that is offered, no waiting time needed. I went there with my sister and parents. It is practical to dine in especially if you have food restrictions, any time of the day they... More

I couldn't not agree more with previous reviews that Bethel Guest House is very clean (and looks like a hospital - in a good way!). We heard that food in the in-house restaurant is good and cheap but we were not able to try and eat there as we were more inclined to try other "popular" restos in Dumaguete such... More

The salient or saleable point of this hotel is location. Its near the boulevard, the center of activities in Dumaguete. Aside from that its all average to below average. From the stern/strict staff to the hospital set up of the rooms, all average. Thus only 3 stars.

Good location because guest house is just infront of rizal blvd, walking distance to market, sans rival bistro and 10-15mins walk to pier. Room has wifi but a bit slow during our stay but place was clean and they have comfortable beds. What i like best about this guest house is their food in their cafe. Affordable but all the... More
