“Nice location, friendly staff, mediocre stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

I transferred here from Camila 2 which i found overpriced... By recommendation i came here, however despite their effort to add class to the place, it never makes it above average judged by international standards... and a newly build boardwalk strip mall blocks all view to the ocean and has replaced it with a very uncharming view into walls and roof sides... Rooftop restaurant has cockroaches running around and i takes them 40 mins to serve food... Wifi is really good, no complaints at all as the only thing above average...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Antonio's Pension House provides a simple and comfortable accommodation that is near to the city center. With the rates that it offers, it certainly provides good value for money. They also have a spa and a cafe-restaurant upstairs. The cafe provides a perfect view of the Dipolog Boulevard (which is a favorite hang-out place for the locals and tourists alike as it allows them a wonderful view of the setting sun every day).

I must stress that this is typically a pension house but what sets it apart from other inns in its category is its attention to providing some regard to aesthetics. Its interiors (seen in the lobby, corridors, cafe, and spa) are inspired by Asian/Balinese and Filipino arts.

As it is near some bars and restaurants, just be prepared to hear loud music on some nights. It is better to request the reception staff to assign a room that is not very near the bar on one side of the building.

My hubby and I had a nice time in this hotel so I recommend it for people who want to stay near the Boulevard and are not expecting too much of the frills that other more pricey hotels offer.

Room Tip: Request for a room that is not on the side of the bar/restaurant next door.

good location, some rooms have seaview, but the comfort is for filipinos, not for foreigners small and hard bed, small room too; pension have cable tv, good recent aircon and free wifi; only deluxe room have hot water;
restaurant with terrasse on 2nd floor (seaview), food and drinks are corretly pricing with good quality and attentive service;
many restaurants around and nice walking for sunset on the sea mall
for the price paid (550 to 950 php) it may be a good alternative for dipolog hotels;

Room Tip: ask for discount if you stay 1 week no taxi at arrival airport, just tricycle, negociate at 50 php...
