“Great vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

I stayed there for three nights and four days. It's a nice beach property with a good pool. The rooms are decent and good for two people. Since its built close to nature and has lots of trees around, there are a lot of bugs and mosquitos. The hotel staff does provide coils for protection though. The food at the property is good but it's quite expensive as compared to the usual Philippine standards. The hotel staff s pleasant to deal with. The room that we had was right on the beach so the view outside is simply amazing. Overall, a good stay.

Room Tip: Get the rooms right behind the beach villas, they are cheaper and yet right on the beach.

The service was good, after some confusion on check it, it seemed they couldn't find our reservation. That was cleared up and we had two double fan rooms. The price was a lot cheaper than other hotels along the beach.
The pool was nice, but a little shady, could do with some more loungers. We only ate in the restaurant for one breakfast but it was tasty and reasonably priced.
For the value and location, within easy walking distance of the lively parts of the beach I would stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in a room with a fan, it was pretty hot on the first night, but we got used to it on the s...

At a first glance a wonderful hotel with a wonderful garden - but they keep monkeys and hawks in small cages...the hawks cannot even spread their wings and the monkeys can hardly jump and have but one little branch inside their cage...it's horrible. I cancelled my reservation as soon as I saw how they treat the animals although the hotel is quite nice. My advice: Tell the people at the reception why you don't stay and write a mail - because as soon as they make the cages bigger the resort will be really worthwile staying!

Beachfront. Quiet place. perfect for people who wants to relax. The room is simple, native style and comfortable but not convenient. The rooms doesn't have telephone and refrigerator. The food in the restaurant was okay but not that good. Price is affordable.

Well maintained swimming pool , very clean and no heavy chlorine smell. Hotels / cottage rooms I do not like, because the native "sawali" walls looked dingy and hides a lot of insects, bathroom have molds and water pressure is on the low side so heater does not work well. The Aircon though left "on" the hole day, it is not cool . But the staff are friendly and friendly, superb team. I will try another resort if I Coe back to Hotel

very nice place. we stayed at a poolside suite.. a great place for a barkada(group of friends) bonding. it has a room with two queen size bed. very comfy pillows, and comforters. a fridge, water heater. it has a walk in closet and a bathtub. nice beach. friendly staffs.. the only hassle we experienced is that, the water line were damaged and they need to shut it off so that they can fix it.. we waited for about an hour to take a shower from swimming.. nevertheless will absolutely go back to this resort and definitely better than dumaluan beach resort.
