“Not so many choices in Roxas City”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

We stayed in this hotel last year for an overnight stay after a vacation in Boracay.
We arrived in the hotel at around 8PM and the staff did not even bother to help us with our bags even though they already saw us coming (the reception is a few minutes walk away from the entrance).
The hotel grounds is very big with a number of amenities, some are free and others are not.

The room we got was dirty. There were hair on our beds and even a piece of gum/sticky material on the wall with hair on it. It was really disgusting.
The room we were transferred to was not as dirty but definitely not clean either.
We opted to lay down our towels on the bed before sleeping.

The breakfast we had in the morning was good.
The swimming pool was small and was only around 4ft at its deepest side.
Another bad thing about the hotel is the seemingly lack of security for such a big place.
There are a number of entrances in the hotel premises and we saw a number of people who freely came in and out as there were no security at some entrances.
Unfortunately, there aren't many hotels in Roxas City but I would gladly try a different one.

The resort has nice amenities - an area to play bowling/billiards, swimming pool & man-made lake (though i was not able to personally try them as i was always outside exploring the rest of Capiz). I really liked the resort's ambiance, and the staff were all warm and friendly. It's actually ideal for family outings (the resort also has a kiddie playground). What I like most is its location: it's just about 20 minutes from the airport, it's near the city center, and most of all, it's just right across Baybay beach, where you can find stalls selling fresh seafood or just simply lounge by the sea. Oh, and I got a 10% discount on my second night when i settled my bill during check-out (i was too happy, i didn't get to ask why), which is another reason why i'll choose this place when I go back to Capiz. :)

To be honest, i didnt have high expectations of the resort. We had to book there because of a family reunion happening just after Christmas.
But I was pleasantly surprised. The resort was nicely located across from the beach. It was clean and the rooms were spacious. The pool was very nice and the view of the manmade lagoon was beautiful.
The food was ok. The staff were wonderful (we found this to be true everywhere we went in the Philippines).
So, overall, if I was to go to Roxas City again, I would certainly consider San Antonio again.
PS
we arranged pick-up with the hotel's shuttle from Catiklan. it was 4500php and it was worth the money not having to worry about taking public transportation with many luggages on one hand and a young child on the other.

Room Tip: the Lagoon rooms had the best views (though you may find yourself facing more mosquitos). The Garde...

I stayed there for a week with my sister. We had the lagoon room for the first two nights, but moved to their deluxe rooms because we were between two very noisy groups having parties until 4:00 a.m. The room was fine, but sink plumbing was leaking so badly that water leaked straight down the floor. It took three different "plumbers" three different times to fix it.We went to Ilo-Ilo city overnight, came back the next day to find out my sister's luggage was soaking wet, all of her clothes got wet because their A/C unit could not withstand the heavy rain the night before that caused the leak. Also, someone who works in the hotel slashed open my new carry-on luggage and stole my iPhone and charger. I say it's an inside job because workers have access to rooms and a small iPhone can be easily concealed. I will never go back to that hotel again nor will I recommend it to anyone else.

This resort is big, you have many room choices for accommodation. Cheapest is 800 pesos (equivalent to about $20) already airconditioned. Good service, from the lady guards to bellboys. Just outside are many restaurants that sells fresh seafoods, and u can have them cooked to your liking. Overall a nice place to stay.

staff needs more energy when greeting thier guest.. place is great but lacks in costumer service.. i wouldnt book here if it wasnt for the pool and the manmade lagoon.. rates to go kayaking 25-40-60php per hour. the pool is 5ft, 3ft and 1 ft.. infinity pool. the rooms are common.. theres too many mosquitoes at night.

Stayed there on a visit to Roxas City to attend a friend's wedding. Stayed in the Deluxe rooms, found it pretty basic. The beds were not that comfortable n the beach was across the main road. Food at the hotel was very poor. The pool was nice but the artificial lake was really a total let down. Wifi is only available at the lobby which can be very far from the rooms. Location of course was a distance from the city proper. Bottom line the hotel is a basic property that is overpriced for a small town like Roxas City

Room Tip: Stay closer to the lobby or be prepared to walk a fair distance to the beach
