I chose islands view inn because of the great reviews in tripadvisor and it did live up to my expectations. The room is not as grand as the rooms in other hotels but it has everything that we needed to make our stay pleasant and comfortable. The staff has good customer service skills, they are very courteous and attentive to our needs and I really grew fond of them. On our first daY at the hotel, i did not notice that I dropped my envelope containing our tickets for our flight back to manila. Fortunately, one of the staffs found it and slid it under our room's door. This saved us from a lot of hassle. Also, when I was at the lobby, i overheard the receptionist instructing another staff to inform one of the guests not to worry about the lost cellphone because the guard found it
The quality and quantity of the breakfast is fine. I was able to try their tapsilog, dangitsilog, american and continental breakfast and all of it were delicious. However, the quantity of bacon which was included in the american breakfast was too little and was not enough to fill our stomachs. Also, it would have been better if they included vegetables in their menu.
Lastly, the hotel has tours which are significantly more expensive than what travel agencies offer. The reason behind this is unlike with the travel agencies where in you have to share the van, the tour and the guide with strangers, the tours that the hotel offer is just exclusive for your group. In our case, we arranged our tour package and hotel accomodation with calamian travels and since its not peak season, we just shared our tour with a few people and we had a wonderful time for less amount of money.
*Pls include free shampoo and room slippers
add vegetables to the menu
*pls ask the crew from the jasmines hotel (the hotel right beside islands view owned by the same family) not to hang their clothes in the rooftop next to the hotel's restaurant
*add telephone inside the rooms so the guests dont have to go out for heir requests
* one of the hotel rules is they are not liable for anyblost belongings left inside the room. In that case , pls add a vault. This will make guests feel more secured.
