The grounds at the back of the hotel facing the ocean was really nice, clean and well maintained. Beautiful pool, the children in our party were reluctant to quit swimming. The restaurant staff were very efficient, reserving dinner for 30 with only two hours notice was not even an issue. Rooms were spacious and clean. The view, if you have... More

The public areas are all open air with dark wood trim and floors. There is a on site open air restaurant. They have no beach. There is a public “beach” next to the resort. It looked very rocky, not a nice sandy beach. You have to leave the hotel grounds to get to it. We thought we had reserved the... More

They will over charge you if you are a foreigner, but if you push them they will come down some. So don't just except their first price. Keep in mind that this seemed to be the best place in the area. Happy Travels, ExploreTraveler

Been here last holiday season with my brothers and their family, so we just stayed in just one room and just added an extra bed. So this place is a cab away from the city proper of Ormoc. You will see the sign Sabin Resort along the way and just follow the direction. Most driver will know this so you... More

A little off the road outside of Ormoc town proper, this quiant resort is nestled beside the ormoc bay on the west . The winding pool that highlights the resort grounds is always a great Dip for the weary traveller like myself. The main Al fresco resto at the corner of the property serves a mix of Filipino and continental... More

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
