A crenellated castle in Anglo-Teutonic style (Anglo: The sword Excalibur sticking out of a rock; Teutonic: Gothic stained glass windows) this is the last thing you would expect in the Philippines. But here it is: The public areas of the Lingganay Resort - even with a swim-in gothic chapel. Eurodisney has arrived on these shores!
The vast gardens of the resort are meticulously maintained. There are two large pools, one supposedly for the exclusive use of adults (ignored by some of the guests - and not enforced by the management...).
The appartments are very spacious and, obviously, the whole construction of the resort was not done on a budget - there is local marble wherever you look.
Unfortunately, this is where it ends.
The appartment I stayed in bore no resemblance to the official pictures posted on tripadvisor (p.ex. there where no paintings on the wall, no table lamps in the lounge, no curtains, etc.).
Pitty, that the bedlinen is synthetic and the pool towels (available at reception) are completely inadequate, both in size and quality.
Being fully aware that my stay is only a few months after the typhoon, I would have preferred the management to cancel my reservation as my appartment was cleary unfit for occupancy and rent: Widespread fungus and mould on the whole bathroom ceiling; lamps not working to the extent that unsecured electricity wires were sticking out of the wall, etc.
Unfortunately, just to vigorously spray heavy scents in such an environement, does not do the job. Mould is a severe health hazard. When the stench from the mould got too terrible (and also too dangerous to my respiratory system) I repeatedly asked to get moved to another unit. The request was not granted by the resort...
