“It's still the best place to stay in Bacolod:-)Princess v...ur awesome! U sold me that extra night!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

I plan to stay only for a night but felt so relaxed with the place i have to extend.i am a balikbayan from the u.s.a visiting relatives.
This is the best place in Bacolod to recover from jetlag:-) food is good.price is ok...the best part of this is the people in their frontline...receptionists! Princess v. Here's one of the many reasons y...
My Tito and Tita visited me, they brought with them their lovely dog.the bellboys and assistants was so abrupt " no u cannot have ur dog here" without even knowing if really they staying or just looking around....but princess v. Just calmly say its ok, leash the dog and walk around d vicinity. I mean this may sound petty but its a big deal for pet lovers if they hear their pets not treated right.
Shes calm and compose despite the challenging,demanding guests in front of her:-) thanks princess.

D jacuzzi guy is probably tired.we are already on our swimsuit attire ready for jacuzzi since it one of the perks booking a certain suite rm...wud not let us in until we go talk to the front desk ourselves which is a block away..he has in his hand a hand held radio to call and verify...but no he did not.unnecessary inconvenience for a guest. For that delay..we haven't use the jacuzzi coz it rain:-(
But overall ...had a good stay..minus the li'l setbacks/-)

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Pros: clean (suite) rooms, generally well-maintained facilities, nice and hospitable staff.
Cons: far from major road and public transportation, could get over-crowded as the pool is open to non-staying guests.

Was there for a wedding. The place was very nice for such an event. The pools are well-maintained but the jacuzzi's seemed to be not working well i.e., wasn't warm enough. Although wifi is available, availability in the rooms keeps on dropping or no service at all. Called the staff and I was told just to go outside the room or by the lobby. It was hot and humid and late at night so spending outside just to browse was not a pleasant option. If you're a fitness buff as what they say in their website, don't count on the fitness room as they have only a room (more like a storage room) without proper ventilation and few sets of dumb-bells. I almost fell in one of their work-out bench when I tried to do a bench press because the bench was not screwed at all. The men's comfort room by the main lobby is really stinky. These are just some of the bad things that I noticed. But in general, I like the place for a decent weekend get-away.

This place really has excellent service and facilities. I have been here quite a few time but now they have rennovated the place making it more wonderful. Its definitely a plus that it is with in the city considering that most resort hotel are far (or maybe none at all within the city). The staff was accomodating and always mindful of details.

Well it is typical for me to stay mostly in the hotel room where it's cool and has wifi but at PDM it's a must to venture out, because the ambience by the beach and the paradise feel makes it irresistble.. The kids stayed mostly in the water-- they have three great pools to choose from.

They have an outdoor bar set up beside the pool for those who wanted to drink and mingle while watching the sunset or just listen to kids frolic in the water.

So whenever we are in Bacolod this is the place to be.

I stayed in this resort when I attended my 35th High School Reunion. The price was reasonable with all the amenities the resort had to offer. My husband and I enjoyed the hospitality of the staff. Most of all we enjoyed having our transportation arranged through the hotel. Having been away from Bacolod for many years, Fred guided is through our stay. The staff were all courteous and respectful. The room was fully air-conditioned and really frigid - nice refuge if you come from the outside which felt like almost 100 degrees as in Texas! I recommend this for families taking a long vacation in bacolod City.

I stayed in Palmas del Mar several times and it was always an EXPERIENCE. Its a gem within the city. Bacolod has become a very progressive city, far from the city i grew up in. Back after 15 years away, bacolod has so much to offer and so is negros with its many destination for vacations, leisure, sports and great scenery but within a the city is a resort hotel that takes you away from the hustle and bustle of the city. If you want FUN, you can have it at Palmas del Mar with its many activities for family bonding, friends and even corporate activities, if you want PEACE, QUIET SOLTITUDE, YOU CAN HAVE IT AT PALMAS DEL MAR, IF YOU WANT TO COMMUNE WITH NATURE, ITS PALMAS DEL MAR. Fresh sea air, beautiful trees, fishing spots, swimming pools. You wake up to unpolluted fresh sea air that is HEALTHY FOR YOU. Rooms are spacious, verandas for peaceful thinking or for entertaining. most importantly security is tight, you can sleep well knowing you are safe. Palmas del Mar is an EXPERIENCE for people vacationing and for people of bacolod, one doesnt need to go through long trips out of town for a vacation. Its an EXPERIENCE.

My sister's family and I checked in at this hotel for three days before the Holy week. We enjoyed our three days stay. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The Villa Cavana (room which we stayed ) was clean. The place was generally peaceful . I would love to go back and check in at this resort in the near future.

Room Tip: Villa Cavanas are good for family accomodation

This is the best hotel in Bacolod if your looking for a peaceful rest its on the bay so it has a nice breeze and 2 nice pools.The Philippine food is good so stick with that the cheeseburger I got was about as bad as it can get prices are a little high but not too bad on most food.The rooms were ok.

Room Tip: Dont get the more expensive rooms they are not worth the extra money.
