I'll start by saying the property is beautiful. It's by far the nicest place in Ormoc. However, the service is TERRIBLE. Like some hot water to make a tea? There's a charge... no problem. Two phone calls and 45 mins later you might get your hot water. The restaurant has lots of staff giggling and standing around, but no one... More

We arrived at the resort at around 10PM and the receiving area (lounging) is pretty enough to impress first-time visitors and guests. The room service seemed too long to respond and the food is not well-served. On the other hand, the ambiance is still perfect for family and friends who want to have a night out.

The Sabin is a great venue to stay but the restaurant continues going backwards. Meals sometimes take nearly 80 minutes to serve and served cold where a meal should be served hot! The service is slow even though there maybe only a hand full of people waiting. I have stayed there now on 4 occasions and they always run out... More

Room prices are reasonable. No internet service in the rooms though. Only in the lobby is there access. If Internet is a must for business this is a problem. A small refrigerator would have been also nice in the room. The reasturant is decently priced and tasty with a large selection. However if you are on a time schedule I... More

Sabin Hotel The good news? It's the best hotel in Ormoc. The bad news? It's the best hotel in Ormoc. Staff are friendly, except for the folks at reception. Many need improvement in their ability to carry out their duties. TV remote not working? Called the desk. "OK", the response. No one ever showed up. Well, to be fair, a... More

I booked here for 1 night just for the debut of my friend's daughter being held there. Rooms are big but somewhat gloomy. Interiors are dark as most are made out of wood. But perhaps it's the hotel's theme. Beds are big, pillows are soft, A/C works well and bathroom is also very spacious. TV has only 3 channels. Pool... More

For 2 yrs. going back to ormoc we always chose this hotel. We love the ambiance, the relaxing atmosphere, but in the recent stay we had, it was terrible. Let's start in our room. The toilet was leaking, we reported it but no actions, I dont understand why the housekeeping don't notice it every time they clean that room. Holes... More

Compared to other resorts, in the Philippines, it is not the greatest. But, it is, by far, the best resort in Ormoc. It is not far from the ferry, so, it's convenient. It is on the ocean with a nice view, and they pool is great. They don't have a beach, but, a nice view. The rooms are so so.... More

Although the property is very good, much is left to be desired. The property is beautifully appointed with hardwood trim & floors that are rock solid. The grounds are lovely. The restaurant was good & the prices very fair. We stayed in the Presidential Suite the first night. The first thing you notice is how large & well-appointed the room... More

First time visit to this resort and I was thoroughly satisfied with the 2 days I stayed here. Beautiful on-the-water resort close to downtown Ormoc with everything you need for a relaxing stay. The site has a large swimming pool with restaurant and beach access. The site is still recovering from Typhoon Yolinda so the restaurant is slightly open aired---one... More
