Stayed here for just 1 night with girlfriend and her relatives. The family room was just a deluxe and standard room combined into one, and was spacious enough to accommodate 9 of us for the evening. Staff were friendly and all, but they seem to lack communication with their colleagues. The breakfast buffet was also not that varied given the... More

Well, we had a hut for ourselves, which was nice. Decent sized room, porch, aircon, good mattress. Negative to the room are the paper thin walls that let u hear everything that's said and done outside and vice versa. They play music from speakers that lasts until late and starts again at maybe 5:30 morning when the garden workers arrive.... More

Location is nice at the beach, there is also a swimming pool for the guests of the hotel (give your voucher to the guard). Behind the wall near the beach are all kinds of huts which people can rent for a day and enjoy there with the family. Rooms are very simple, small and quite expensive. 1200p per night. Rooms...

The Dolores Tropicana is a semi-traditional Filipino family beach resort on the edge of Sarangani Bay about 15 - 20 minutes drive from General Santos City Airport. I say "semi-traditional" because in addition to the hundred or more open "cottages" crammed along the beach, there are also 20 or so private chalets (the "Hotel") in a gated area set back... More

It looked so nice from the pictures and the near by beach is also very nice. However, hearing the constant blah blah blah from the speakers about beach and hotel not responsible for accidents every about hour, was extremely annoying!! Plus we could hear EVERYTHING the ppl in the next room of the cabin were saying/doing. I could not believe... More

I have been there in march 2015 because I have been in the other resort (Dolores Farm in Polomolok) and I was imaging it was similar. Unfortunately it is not so nice.

General Santos is a bustling city, but it is not exactly a destination known for it beaches. The beach at the Dolores Tropicana is a letdown-the sand is dark and grimy, and the water not clear at all. This is a resort for the locals-where they can swim, eat and party, but people who have been to Boracay, Palawan or... More
