Upon arrival at the airport a driver with a bright smile brought us to the hotel, which is located only a few minutes away. Welcome drinks served by a very alert staff at the lobby. You feel at home from the first moment. Our room was furnished with a Rattan Canopy Bed and a unique Rattan Ceiling. Matress was so comfortable, that my boyfriend didn't want to get up in the morning.
The bathroom was a dream. Very unique shape and all needed items like Rasor Mirror, Hairdryer, Towelholder at the right place. The toilet paperroll within reach, if You're sitting on the bowl.Toilet Seatcover fixed, You won't fall off like in some other hotels. I enjoyed the Bidet,which You usually cannot find in other hotels in the Philippines. Seems like the German owner sets great value upon maintenance, which results that everything is functioning.
The Garden Restaurant is the meeting point of all the guests. Seafood was great, but also Italian dishes like "Spaghetti Alio Olio" tasted as well as in a good Italian Restaurant in Europe. Just ask the accomodating waiter about, what's not on the Menu, and You will be surprised, what appetizing dishes the cooks could create for You.
Pool was very clean and nobody bothers, if You want to use the pool at 2 am in the morning.
Our tours to Underground River, Honda Bay and within the City were well organized by Ms. Lut.
One night we had a romantic candlelight dinner near the Grotto beside the pool.
After all I must say, that You get good value for Your money. You feel welcomed from the first moment until check out. All the staff is so friendly, alert and accomodating.
We surely will stay at Dolce Vita Hotel again during our next visit to Palawan.
