Stayed here a couple of nights in beautiful Aklan Province. The rooms had nice AC and was very cold for the Westerner I am. The breakfast was ok and limited, however the experience within the walls is what matters. The pool was a nice hangout and a break from visiting family in the area. Will visit again, Night time with... More

Stayed for one night with my family to see the Ati-atihan festival and attend an organized reunion at Kalibo. Apart for those who have Christmas in their hearts all year round, this hotel is great for group leisure gatherings, for a restful sleep after experiencing high energies at the festival, and for children to play. My father and his friends... More

Nice museum. Me and my friends enjoyed the various displays of dolls and figurines. They also have models of late president Cory Aquino and her husband Senator Ninoy Aquino. The place also has a great view of the sea. So nice to spend a romantic time there, I guess.

It's a pity that we came to this place with vestiges of the destructive super typhoon Yolanda still very visible. Nonetheless, we can not help but appreciate the uniqueness of this hotel. The Pros: 1. If you're one of the many who feels sad everytime Christmas comes to pass, then you must swing by this unique place where Christmas seems... More

The place is big with museum and pool. Good for family and business. I was there with my fellow university professors who also like the place. Some structures though are dilapidated and needing repair especially their butterfly garden their front park near the sea front. Attractions especially the doll museum is a must see for the whole family. Good side... More

We stopped here overnight to break up the journey to Boracay with two very young children. It was fun. The hotel is situated in lovely big grounds, with a fabulous pool area, and many different garden areas right on the ocean. There is a christmas museum and other sites. I would have loved to have come in its heyday when... More

We stayed overnight before proceeding to Caticlan (Boracay) so my kids could see the “Christmas Village” and doll figurines as advertised in their website. First impression: A bit strange when we got there at 9:00 pm. because the lights and trimmings for the Christmas Cottage were off and the giant Xmas tree which is the center piece, has no lights...

It was a good 20-30min drive from the center of Kalibo. It was just a quick pit stop but an awesome experience. Generally, the resort is old but it doesn't make it any less interesting or worth visiting. I have always adored those teardrop-eye faces of the Precious Moments and been an avid fan! Really loved the place adorned with... More

Unique experience because of the Precious Moment and Christmas theme. The reception area welcomes guests with big Christmas trees, a huge wreath and an assortment of angel decor, makes for a very pleasant welcome experience. The Standard room we got was very spacious (two double beds) with cable tv, free mineral water, bathroom with bathtub and strong airconditioning and fully... More

My daughter has a great time in this Hotel. From the Swimming Pool, to the Christmas Tree Building (I don't know what they called that building). I always love hotels offering Buffet Breakfast. Just remember that this place is move on happenings outside so don't expect something great inside your room.
