“Well worth the money !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2009

I am an American, my bride is Filipina

Over all experience of our three night stay was very good. Well worth the price ! ( bring cash ! no Atm or bank for hours drive).
Hotel rooms in great shape, staff very very good.
Food from the adjacent restaurant very good, same owner as hotel.

We arrived after a storm, but our weather there was great. Our beach front was cleaned while adjacent beaches remained messy from the storm.
If your viewing Venere.com about this hotel you will experience some inacuracies. While we were there the sand was not white and the surf was not crystal clear blue. Maybe the storm was a factor? There is'nt an outdoor pool but they have a seawater hydro massage Jacuzzi. better to call the hotel directly for new improvements. They were very, very nice people.

We could see white sand beaches on the adjacent island, the hotel can take you there for extra fee.
Safety: As anal american, I felt safe there, the neighbors are british, american, australian, german and filipinos.

If you truly want to think about your safety consider your method of travel, you can request for a van with seatbelts but most jeepneys/buses and vans don't. the roads are well paved but the route is through the mountainside with very steep ravines...exciting but scary at the same time. The 2.5 hour-ride back felt much safer because we were in a fullsize bus. Maybe because the driver was slower and it wasn't raining in the mountain section.

I must tell you about the woman grooming her daughter for lice. Fortunately her son was between us. If any if this rattles you, consider getting a van. no cabbies there.

We might go back next year and defititely visit st.paul's island!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2008

After I read the honest reviews from this page, I decided to reserve a room by calling the owner who was extremely kind and helpful.
What a time it was indeed! The first-rate staff, beautiful rooms with ample space, the superb garden, pool and the fact the beach is only 10 yards away make this place an abolute must when vacationing in Philippines.

you can work quietly on your tan while relaxing to the sound of the waves, the restaurant who delivers food for the hotel is only a few yards away and has an excellent menu.

While I was there the owner even let me use his motorcycle to run errands dowtown hinunangan, I just kept the tank full.

I strongly suggest anyone planning for a great vacation time to consider this hotel first, highly recommended for quality and value.

We enjoyed our stay in the hotel and loved the garden view. I called it "Tropical Paradise". The staff were great and friendly. I would recommend this hotel to our family and friends and will give a rating of perfect 10.
