“Good Enough”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2006

Situated near SM City Mall in Batangas City. The hotel is a little bit old but it is a good place to stay if you are in that place. The room is cozy but needs improvement in its neatness specially the bathroom. Very good karaoke room but the sound system needs be upgraded. Billiard and pingpong tables must be replaced. Badminton court and the gym are the best facilities they have. swimming pool is clean but from the top view you would see that some of the tiles are not original anymore. The smell in the corridor needs a spray of lysol. Food is fine, not so great but not so bad. Staff are great. Great view of SM Mall.

Such a great hotel! The service is wonderful and the staff is very attentive. Hotel ambiance is relaxed but very organized.

We've been there twice and we'd love to return there soon.

Highly recommended!

  • Liked — Room accomodation and location. Not too far from Manila but not too near also. We loved the drive to the hotel!
  • Disliked — Direct view of the hotel of a really hideous shopping mall.
  • Tips/Secrets — the pool and pingpong tables are free for guests to use ! Take advantage of booking a room with breakfast coupons only, the buffet is so great you'll surely be still full till the late afternoons.

As a young business traveller, I value my experiences with Hotel Pontefino in Batangas City, travelling all over the Philippines, I have every year stayed in this hotel for a span of three weeks due to business. The food is delectable, the service although not that exceptional but very promising (especially as how the beautiful front desk receptionists diffuse our concerns in case we're not satisfied). They leave notes about activities in the tent that may disturb the hotel guest's rest (a plus for being considerate), notes about power outages etc. There was this one time that they forgot to shuttle us back to the hotel and we pointed that out, they were apologetic and gave a complimentary fruit plate to show their regret. These little things make me us think that "hey, it's good that we are treated very well, and I hope it's not just because we are staying for three weeks every year here." But I bet they treat all of their guests as valued patrons. Very commendable. If there's a so-called Barako of all Coffee, Hotel Pontefino is the barako for Batangas Hotels. -Francis O.Fernandez (Directory Sales & Services Corp., Digitel Directory Publisher)----
