“Staying at Red Palm was a pleasant experience.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

The place was not that hard to find, thanks to Google Maps. It was off Butuan's main strip, but not too far. Reception was courteous and quick. The room was simple, comfortable and clean. The bathroom was spotless. Free breakfast had various choices and was good. Staff was willing to serve and very hospitable. Will definitely return again.

One thing I mainly consider whether or not the hotel/resto had hit its mark is its people. Red Palm has the best staff - Polite, quick, and accommodating.
My most recent trip was just last week (Jan 16-18). True enough, it was a business/official trip but Red Palm was able to provide the rest and relaxation we all deserved when it's time to retire to our rooms.
I wouldn't call it negative or minus points but rather "areas for improvement". Red Palm's resto is quite little. You have to be careful when moving around coz you might bump into another customer. They also don't have a rack where they sell personal items which travelers forgot (read: toiletries, etc)

Plus side:
- secured parking lot
- good food
- clean and comfortable rooms

What I like about this place is that it is cozy and the amenities are new for a good price. The singke room where I stayed is very spacious and the bathroom is clean. It is safe for your car as well as you can park it in front of your room. I would love to stay here again. Though it's quite hard to look for initially, the price and quality makes up for it. I will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Call in advance.

If you had a car and wished that it would be parked near your room and be safe the whole night-this is the place to go to. You can basically park right in front of your door. The room is simple. The cafe is the better accessory to this establishment with surprisingly good food and service. The cafe can be a nice meeting place to see your buyers or suppliers.

Butuan is the capital city of Agusan del Norte, a heritage province found in Northern Mindanao. You’d know you’re in Butuan when every corner you turn to, you’d see a Balanghay (boat) icon. Various museums are dedicated for this cultural icon. Butuan claims that this is where the Spaniards first landed, not in the Cebu the way our textbooks say!
Now, what can vacationers do in less popular destination like Butuan? A lot! If museums, with highly knowledgeable tour guides, aren’t your cup of tea, you may go ziplining, ride an ATV, hit the beach, or do some mountain climbing.

Butuan is where I found my soundest sleep in months! I checked in at Red Palm Suites and Restaurant in November for 2 nights and in December for another 3 nights! I’m telling you: THE BEST SLEEP EVER.
I’ve had 2 different rooms for my 2 separate visits. But both rooms gave me THE BEST SLEEP EVER!

The beddings are new. They provide only 1 pillow, and when you request for another one, they will deliver it to your doorstep – wrapped in its plastic casing! I guess it gives you the illusion that it’s clean and fresh but that illusion works well with me. The pillows are the best features of this hotel. It’s PLUSH. It’s just so huggable! BEST. SLEEP. EVER.

The hotel is located not in the city center but within a residential area that’s why maybe it’s quiet around here. The neighborhood then gives you a homey feel, you kind of feel at home and secured. But don’t you worry, there are tricycles (in interesting configuration) that ferry people from this area to the city center. No taxis or cabs around. Estimated travel time is about 10 minutes. Some of the roads are a bit rough but it’s no toughy. It’s located just near the Provincial Capitol and the mall.

Another plus point of this hotel is their huge table where you can just type away and work… or do Facebook. Either way, it’s awesome. It’s also got a huge mirror by its wall so you may also use this as your boudoir – this is just my illusion as this is commonly found by the bathroom door anyway.

And for travelers like me who’s got a lot to plug-in/recharge, the room’s got plenty of electrical outlets to choose from: by the bed, near the table/mirror, wall at the far side.
They’ve got complimentary breakfast too. But you know what I don’t get here? When you order coffee or anything from the cafeteria and have it room serviced, they charge you extra for it… when they just have to walk a few meters! The hotel, well it’s more like bed and breakfast, is just one storey, with less than 30 rooms. It’s nothing big and fancy so I don’t see the point of charging me extra for my coffee. So what I did was I’d call the cafeteria a couple of minutes ahead, walk right across from my room(through their 20 cars-or-so parking area), pick up my coffee and go walk back. I’ve exercised and saved a few bucks!
Their bathroom is OK, nothing exceptional – clean toilet, hot and cold shower, clean towel. But some of my colleagues commented that it’s not the regular water, they thought it’s deepwell water. It’s got aftertaste when you brush your teeth. Oh well.

But overall, Red Palm Suites and Restaurant in Villa Kananga is one of the most value-for-money hotel I’ve ever stayed in. The staff are really friendly and helpful. Their very cheerful too, I just don’t know why.
