“stay far far away from wild rose inn. anywhere but here”
Reviewed May 18, 2009

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.

we heard a lot of this place pundaquit jumped off to the islands of capones etc... we stayed (with a lot of regrets) in this place...this is what happened we want to have a relax vaction reason why we did our advance booking for 9 pax at this place..we followed all the procedures and called 3 times just to complete the reservation..we did the usual down payment deposit on time.. we are told tha twe will be having our two rooms and are available for check in at 2pm well and good and I am talking to "MAMA THESS" already which happens to be the english speaking owner of the place..then our date arrived we went there 7 am and we travelled for 2 hrs from pampanga... and we all know that we cannot check in until 2pm because we did our island hopping first, but before going I already met with "MAMA THESS" to confirm our reservation and check in at 2pm and its all settled...until 2 pm arrived NO ROOMS ARE AVAILABLE because the group that supposed to check out at 12 did not...and who are to be blamed US??? until 3pm no rooms are still available imagine we did reservations etc... we talked to MAMA THESS again and we are demanding that rooms should now be provided and THIS IS WHAT SHE TOLD US>>SHE IS TIRED BECAUSE SHE IS THE ONLY ONE DOING ALL THIS THINGS ETC AND IF WE WANT TO JUST GO IF WE WANT SHE DOES NOT TO BE PUSHED TO THE WALL THAT WE CANNOT BE PROVIDED WITH THE ROOMS WE ARE ASKING... imagine that???? iNSTEAD OF SOLVING THERE MISTAKES SHE EVEN HAVE THE COURAGE OF JUST SAYING WILL JUST GO. And after that she told us that we will just be check in to a bigger room ( i cannot imagine what will be that smaller room because the "bigger" room is not that big as u think) just to rest we did accept the what she called a bigger room and pay extra.. We expect that will be the last well its just the start..after a heavy down pour our rooms are leaking..we told her that we just want to have our wet beddings change and she told us that we need to transfer to a smaller room etc.. even blaming the engineers because of the leaked..my Gf then is sleeping and she wake her up to be told that we need to transfer to a smaller rooms because they are now available...and worse our beddings will be carried to the room were we will be transferred etc... they did not make good with the reservation and they are blaming all others...ok then i taugh it will be it..imagine this there is an additionan pay of P50 for the pool ok then but she wanted to charge us this way we are 9 in our group even if only one of us will be using the pool we need to pay for the equivalent of 9 persons thats P450 imagine the logic? 1 use pays all hehe..to end everything the real problem of this resort is the owner dont even try to imagine dealing with her unless you will have a very long sense of tolerance..because our next group of friends that did the reservation with this resort experience even worse and they dont have the same tolerance...we came to know that we are not the only group that experience these..a group from SSS olongapo has even worse experience same problem the OWNER..the place pundaquit is good especially the three main islands but we advice that dont check inn in this resort wild rose for you to have a relax and best vacation... WE WILL NEVER CHECK IN WITH THIS PLACE ANYMORE!!! BUT WE WILL DEFINITELY COME BACK TO CAPONES, ANAWANGIN AT CAMARA!!! I DONT USUALLY POST REVIEWS BUT OUR EXPERIENCE IN THIS RESORT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE TO A HARD WORKING PEOPLE WHO WANTS TO HAVE A HARD EARNED NAD WELL DESERVE VACATION TO RELAX. UNLESS THE PLACE IS RUN PROFESSIOANLLY AND THE OWNER WILL NOT CHANGE FORGET WILD ROSE RESORT SHE IS NOT THE ONLY RESORT IN PUNDAQUIT.

The website seemed promising but I immediately didnt set a high expectation. The rooms featured in the hotel, of course were different from what we got. We had room "R". The room is so small that two people cant walk at the same time. The shower area is really small that only your body can fit. The sink is filled with rust and the bowl doesnt flush.
They dont have a reception area, they were checking us in by the gate and all of us were standing and there were no seats offered for us. (i didnt even see any chairs that were vacant for us to use)
The stairs were wet, since they have a pool, guests can just walk to their room even when theyre dripping, they dont provide mats on the floor or shouldve even indicated a sign "do not enter when wet" because kids can slide and hit the floor. i told the receptionist (who checked us in) that the floor was wet and needed wiping and she said that she just mopped it and told her to look again because its wet, and told me "itll get dry" . FYI, there is an additional fee to use the pool.
The owner is a Filipina who lives in Canada, shes quite friendly and talks a lot. Welcomed every body in the morning using the microphone and would really wake you up.
There was no food, they provide catering from the resort in front called Jimz resort- we ordered our food at 630PM and it was deliverd at 9PM!!!!
What i liked about it was the lighthouse, it offered a nice view of the beach and the mountains.
Overall, I will not stay in this hotel again and will only recommend it to "backpackers" or to those who really want to save.
