OK, so we arrived at La Vista in the worst possible weather without a formal reservation. I was not expecting a welcome reception but our reception was quite odd. The staff, who appeared to be more like caretakers were very surprised to see us and did not know what to do with us. The place looked pretty much closed which is understandable considering the typhoon which had just passed through but I would have thought there would have been at least one staff member with some hospitality skills.
Staff issues aside the room was immaculately clean and the view from the balcony superb. The storm surge presented us with a very angry surf which buffeted the hotel wall at times.
The staff were relieved to hear we were heading into town to eat, however we were surprised to learn there was no breakfast provided (this was not a budget priced hotel). During our many visits to the Philippines this is the first time we have not been provided a breakfast, not very impressed.
The room was lovely and I am sure at any other time the hotel would be better serviced but suggest to make a reservation before arriving.More
