“Overpriced”
Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

The location wasn't bad ( but in caramoan you gonna need transportation because things are very spread).
The staff was really nice and gentle but the service wasn't very good we stayed 3 nights and our room was never cleaned.
Besides, we had to go out for dinner twice coz they wouldn't serve us dinner. They said that their stocks wasn't good enough but we had dinner one night and it was very good, so we don't know.
The room is not bad but it's surely overpriced.

It was rainy the whole time in Caramoan its a good thing La Casa Rosa was a comfy place with a lot of room to hang out both indoor and outdoor, nice rooms and bathrooms and great service from the staff who you could ask to help book trips around the area (and order great lecheflan next door!)

The only thing difficult here was having to look for a bank to make the 50% downpayment I hope in the future they'll allow bookings by credit card.

We stayed at la cosa roa from 4th march to 15th march. Everything was ok until 6th when there was a group of people who decided to rent a videoke machine . We wereassured by the owner ramon perez that it would be quiet before booking our stay. The people were allowed to paly the videoke to about 1.30 am and although asking him to turn it down we were angry that he seemed to think that the many outweighed the few so our requests were ignored and we did not sleep til about 3am. WE had to get up for the tour package at about 7am and were not in a fit condition to do it. Although the food was good and the staff courteous we think the owner behaved irresponsibly. If you don't mind noise until the early hours it is ok. We were dissapointed overall mainly due to the owners attitude towards us regarding the noise.

Room Tip: The rooms here do not have any noise insulation because the walls are partitions. You here everythin...

"NOISE AT THE HOTEL" Ramon F. Perez, the owner of La Casa Roa Hostel has already personally apologized to the guest who had complained. The management did consider the request of the group to use their rented karaoke only before 12 midnight. However, without the knowledge of the management the group continued after 12 midnight and they were reprimanded on the next day. La Casa Roa Hostel does its best to accommodate personal request from guest/s on certain conditions. However, there are guest who breaks the conditions Again, I would like to extend our sincere apology to our guest for the noise at the hotel caused by the karaoke. Lastly, the managment is now very strict with the use of Karaoke inside the hotel.

Moving from Rex Tourist Inn to La Casa Roa Hostel proved to be a good move for me. The room was quite pricey though but comfortable enough for a good night's sleep. Room was spotlessly clean, hot water, cable TV, quality towels, couch, vanity table with mirror and chair. There is a restaurant on the ground floor and a terrace on the second floor. It is once a residential house of a prominent doctor and well maintained. The room rates are quite pricey compared to other hotels, inns and lodges nearby. I was not give any discount at all even if it was low season. Centrally located in Centro, hotel rooms are spacious.

Hi everyone, Caramoan is beautiful place...people are friendly, food is great, everything is affordable and priced accordingly except for this hotel.
Stayed for a couple of nights, had 2 rooms ... food was good, service was friendly and without question the hotel is clean as compared to other inns and hotels in this sleepy little town but when we got the bill, wow it was expensive!!! c'mon our stay @ the Shangri-La in Manila was not even as expensive as the bill we got from these people...it's all because they knew we were balikbayans (filipino tourists)! Wake UP Owners of La Casa Roa, don't overcharge your fellow countrymen just because were tourists! i would not stay here again and i wouldn't recommend this to anyone!
TO OTHER TOURISTS - Do your research prior to coming here and you may also want to check out private residences as they also offer rooms for rent...some are with aircondition and they do take care of you and feed you well. A better option than this La Casa Roa!

human error in business processes is always a constant factor as what happened regarding the so-called "overcharging" incident. Although this is the first and only incident, we will never tolerate this to happen again. Our sincere apology to our guest who complained about this overcharging in this website instead of addressing it directly to us. It is never our policy to overcharge or shortchanged our guests. The rates of our hostel may be pricey but they are commensurate to the qualities of our amenities and services.
