1. a tour coordinator had booked our boat rides but apparently one of the staffers at the inn was under the impression that we would be taking her husband’s boat. when she learned we weren’t, she was totally complaining the whole time and – dig this – didn’t buy food for our dinner, which she claimed was a mix up, but i heard her and her cronies talking about it, so i have proof that it was out of spite.
2. when we were about to have dinner (she finally bought the food), the staff brought up a pot of sinigang with no serving spoon or ladle. when we asked for one, they pretty much ordered one of us to go down and get it.
3. we asked them to heat our leftover lunch rice for dinner and when they brought it up, the pot was full of ants (very warm ants i should think). when we brought it up with the owner, she said “but there were already ants when we heated it.” meaning, they knew there were ants but made absolutely no effort to get rid of them and knowingly served us ant-y rice.
4. when clean up time after dinner came, the staff just totally refused to come up and get the dishes, forcing us to bring them down instead. and to think those were their dishes.
if the place were self-service, then maybe we wouldn’t mind. but no, there was a staff whose job it was to take care of the guests and they did it with such bad humor. our room was beside the kitchen and we could hear them constantly arguing and griping – totally upset at the work they had to do. and it wasn’t just us. we could hear the other guests complaining too (and discussing if they should blog about their bad experience. i hope they did.)
now anawangin and capones are definitely worth visiting. but whatever happens, do not ever ever stay at the wild rose inn. there are lots of other places to stay in and in all honesty i can’t imagine how any of them could have worse service than this place.
