“Each hotel has disadvantages, like this... But I really liked it.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2010

Disadvantages:
1) really you should check all your bills. It seems a big problem for that hotel as I am not the first one who notices it. Strange that Andreas (owner) still didn't fix it inside his staff. The problem for me was that several times the girls-waitresses calculated wrongly the bill for the food and it was really unpleasantly. After first time I had to check the bills each time, but they continued doing mistakes. Once she did it wrong twice in a row for the same bill after I showed her the first mistake! I think they are really bad in arithmetics, this made me thinking like this one case when one of the bills was calculated even in my favor.
2) very high prices on any kind of excursions (like boat or land tours), usually u have to pay min 2000 PHP for person to take a part there. In Alona beach where I was few days before tour prices were cheaper.
3) staff there quite lazy - I had to remind almost every day to clean my room.

Anyway, I really liked staying at this hotel, despite of these 3 disadvantages, it was really nice time there. Andreas appeared to be a nice person, he did a really good proposal to me: first he allowed me to move to another cottage with same ocean view but for much cheaper price, and he did a really good discount for our company for the package of water equipment renting, which I appreciated a lot.
Also this hotel has really nice place, near to GL and next door to Cherinicole, a huge choice of food and any activities, it's own boats and surf boards.

So finally I recommend to stay there, as infrastructure of this hotel is one of the best there. But there are still things to improve there.

A great place to stay just be careful with your money....the owner claims to run an orphanage no one has ever seen but accepts donations...claims to run a foundation to help the poorand accepts donations but no such foundation appears to exist...never signs a receipt in his own hand writng by the way since he is always "out of " them...being sued 9 ways to sunday but people who feel the have been wronged financially on the island....anyway nice place just remember what George Carlin said about god..." nice guy just don't give him any money "

the Cottages are small and relatively old...
When power cut they don't have generator and food in fridge is getting at "risk"...

They are very "commercial" if not to say demanding with their policies...When checking out there is an "invented Tax added to the bill on all items of 5% in my case...That is criminal! Because no Tax would apply from Government side...

I will not go back as there are plenty of alternatives to stay in neighborhood...

Andreas is amazingly helpful and overly friendly...he went out
of his way to help us in every aspect of our time with him...including helping us with hopper flights, boats , scheduling,advice, etc... His accommodations were simple and clean and fairly priced, and we felt very comfortable... the places are basically on the water for less than $39 US per night....what else could you want! We were not looking for the backpacking/hostel type situation...but he did also offer camping sites for very little...He offered the convience of food
prepared by the kitchen... that was great...after a day on the water.
Patricks is also quite close...less than 3k from Cloud-Nine,Cemetary,and Daku (directly in front of his place by boat)
We had, and still have No complaints...Patricks is a great- mello
place to wind down.

  • Liked — straight forward simple and clean.
