This hotel was the choice of my former classmates who came home for a class reunion. We booked three deluxe rooms with twin beds each. My group got so nostalgic when we entered Montebello's premises because it brought back many happy memories . Disappointment and sadness immediately took over our joy when we saw our rooms. Truly this hotel needs a major rehab. The beds were not comfy, there was no fridge in our room (online though they said there is one), no bulb in a lamp, leaking faucet and no hot water when we took our shower. Management said their water heater was busted that day (??).There were also plenty black ants in the toilet. It's time for them to fumigate the rooms too because at night there were plenty mosquitoes. They also have to clean thoroughly the dust and dust mites from the draperies.
We enjoyed the daily breakfast buffet though and had fun swimming in the big pool - water was clean. The hotel staff always greets you with a smile and willing and able to answer the many queries of my friends. The lovely garden is well maintained and flowers a bloom.
Montebello needs a major renovation on its rooms.What more can you ask when you are staying in a 3-star hotel for budget conscious ladies like us, who came home more for bonding and fun with our old dear classmates.
