We booked an executive deluxe room with them through a popular online hotel reservation site and got a good deal.
The room has its own semi private (as it is shared with the adjacent room) pool but it was not filled with water. We did not bother to ask the staff to fill it up since we won't be using it anyway. The room also has a balcony although the view is the next building.
Room is okay and can accommodate only up to four or else it can get crowded.
They did not provide bottles of drinking water though as what you would normally find in other hotels.
The bathroom has a tub and hot and cold shower. Although we stayed here for 3 nights the bathroom supplies - tissue, soap, shampoo were not replenished. The towels were not also changed. The room was not cleaned as it is their policy that the staff cannot clean the room unless a guest would remain inside during cleaning.
The hotel has lots of guests even during low season and security is not tight so everyone can just go in and out.
The breakfast that came with the room is served buffet style albeit the taste was mediocre at its best.
They have 2 swimming pools but both can get crowded.
Our room was on the 3rd floor and it was a pain seeing the oldies use the stairs! The elevator had an old looking sign saying that it is not working.
Staff were accommodating.
Our room is located at the executive wing so you'd walk roughly 2 minutes to get to the beach.
The hotel asked for a deposit of Php2000 during check in but we were able to refund it during check out.
Would I stay here again: Maybe no. There are other cheaper alternatives that are beach front albeit without pool. We only used the pool once anyway.
Would I recommend this to others: sure, if you want a cheap beach front accommodation with swimming pool at white beach.
