Almont Inland Resort
Ranked #9 of 9 Hotels in Butuan
Reviewed November 20, 2013

Butuan is a small city in northeastern Mindanao. Except for the zipline, which was under repair during my stay, the city has nothing for tourists. Yet, the hotel has a high occupancy rate, no doubt because of the business travelers, really friendly staff (hi, Alex, Nick) who go out of their way to help. I have never seen so many sincere smiles!
Room rates seem to be determined by its proximity to the great swimming pool. The lowest rates are for rooms farthest from the pool. The physical facilities are simple but clean. And they have a great cook who make simple dishes taste good.

Room Tip: Rooms 10 to 25 are in front of the fish pond. Rooms 10 to 17 get the afternoon sun. Rooms 18 to 15 g...

Good value for money, probably the best place to stay in Butuan. Rooms are fine, they have swimming pool and the location is pretty good, close to the mall. If you stay here (or anywhere in Butuan) don't miss the 1.3 kilometer zip-line at the Delta Discovery park!

staff was pleasant and very friendly, check in was easy, room was large and clean, restaurant service was very slow and meals was fair but pricy, due to the disco next door it never got quite enough to fall to asleep till after 3am that made it pretty rough when you need to be at the airport at 6am.....

Room Tip: don't pan on any sleep due to the very loud disco next door, they stop playing music at 3am..

I came her very often through the last 12 years. My wife is from this town. The hotel staff are all very friendly and helpful, the rooms large and the service so good. The swimming pool is a must for kids from 1 to 100 years old, and the restaurant serves fine food incl. specialities from Butuan.

I will always come back to this nice hotel/resort in the middle of the town where smiles is a trade mark and relaxation is reality.

Room Tip: You can get nice rooms right out to the big, big swimming pool, and eat your breakfast right outside...

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.

I had my wedding reception in one of their ballrooms. It was magical and solemn. Spent a night or two after the wedding, it was a peaceful stay with my husband. I enjoyed the late night deep at the pool with chilled red wine.

Staffs are warm but needs to show more care to guests. The rooms that are beside the pool are lovely and romantic. Suits family affairs as well.

Went here for a business conference and the hall was huge although the sound system was a mess. We could hear the adjacent hall's activity. The rooms are good though way far from the conference hall but has the necessities i.e. soap, towels, ref with drinks, cable tv, etc. however the entry to my room was only a sliding glass door just like any veranda doors with a view of a stagnant man made pond. Surprisingly no mosquitoes though. Service is good they have this golf cart car that transports you to your rooms. Food is average and cost is just alright.
