The hotel offer free shuttle to and from the airport which is a nice feature. It's about 15 minutes from the airport to the hotel. Check in was easy. A buffet breakfast came with the room, and we elected to take it at check in as we were leaving early the following and would not be able to take the buffet the next day. The Buffet is located in a large open area, no window or doors, and the they have kind of the standard buffet fare, egg station, a couple of different meats, rice, cereal, fruit and breads. One thing that bothered me was since the buffet was in an open area, there was an abundance of flies and the Sparrows flew in and pecked on the spoons that is used for getting your food.
To get to the room, you take a golf cart from the check in area, it would be a long walk if dragging bags. The room was large but rather basic, no carpet, tile floor, two double beds, and the only amenities were a refrigerator, with some drinks inside, and a flat screen cable tv. No room safe, no coffee service (water heater), but many mosquitos. The door was a sliding glass door that was somewhat hard to lock and it did not have an inside security lock. WIFI was available. The room has towels but no wash cloths, soap, but didn't see any shampoo.
When we were leaving for our business meeting with computer, LCD, and other stuff, we could not get any answer at the front desk on the phone, so we had to carry all the stuff up to the lobby ourselves which was a task. There is apparently no taxi service in Butuan as we had requested a taxi to take us to the event and a gentleman showed up in old car to take us for a fee.
The hotel has a large pool, which we did not use, and i'm not sure of any other features.
All in all, it was an experience, but not one that I would want to do again.
