“Hof Gorei Was Excellent!”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

The resort is very quiet and is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the serenity! The butler Ging Ging catered to our every need and was a delight to talk to. The food was excellent! Fresh and Very Reasonable for the quality and portions! When you are here you wouldn't even know the resort had any other guests. We swam in the beautiful pool every day and there was only one time another group was in the pool. At high tide the water is fine to walk in right off of the beach. A few rocks here and there, but not a problem at all! The beach dinner was the highlight! Some complaints here about a lack of a restaurant....Why do you need one! You get served anywhere you want on the property! We had a Hillside Hut and LOVED IT! The walk up the steps was not a problem. Good exercise! We cannot wait to return! Thank You Ging Ging and Miss April! Miss April - Thanks for the ride and Apo View Hotel, we had a blast!! Dave and Angie!!

Room Tip: Hill Side Hut is very quiet and overlooks the resort!!

We didn't get the value for money spent in this resort. They have a rocky beach that no one dare to swin, they don't have a lifeguard too. The food is really expensive more than double compare to others. Animals (cats,chicken, ducks, goose and turkeys) roam the resort whole day. I regret having a vacation in this resort.

The resort is about an hour by boat from the city wharf.The resort facilities are fine. It's just that you are stuck in the resort when you are there coz the resort is the only place you can see. The other resorts are far from each other unlike other places where resorts are near each other. There is no restaurant, just a bar, so you always have to order a room service and of course they will charge you for the room service.

Room Tip: The room we stayed is a family room for 4 which is a good room.

We spent 5 days over the New Year, we liked the ambiance of the place, easy access to the beach, we had a good time snorkeling in the clear blue sea. Beware of the hidden charges, no restaurant, all room service only and you have to pay the 10% service charge. Our room attendant was not helpful and not forthcoming, we had to talk to the owner who replaced the room attendant with someone who knew how to deal with the guests at the resort. The food was bad and I would not go back there again. You're better off going to Pearl Farm and paying a bit extra for the excellent facilities there.

Room Tip: Go for the beach front rooms otherwise you've got a long walk uphill.

Its a wonderful relaxing place to be. The stuff is wonderful, you have your personal butler. The garden is amazing, explore the plants and animals ... and dinner on the beach very romantic. The german/english speaking owner April helps in every way. Nice pool, very good restaurant ... The Hillside Round Hut is very nice, just have to walk some steps up on the hill. Enjoyed the stay!

Room Tip: The Hillside Round Huts are wonderful

We stayed in Hof Gorei with my man for 3 nights there,We choose the room infront of the beach.It was really beautiful although its a long drive of boat when we went there compare to the other beaches which is just close to davao city. But despite of the long sailing it was Beautiful and Perfect for me and for my partner. This place is just lovely with beautiful view in the jacuzzi pool upstairs of their conventional room upstairs when you finally reach of the top you can see the beautiful view there it was overwhelming view.This resort is well managed but the only thing is not so good there is the connection of the wifi. They don't have wifi before I hope they have put now. The beach is clean and their pool is just cute and especially the big one pool. They also have some animals around the beach which is very perfect.Its quiet beautiful in Hof gorei that we experienced the room is just perfect but their bathroom has to be mordenized as we are modern now but it was okey. The most features of this resort is their own butler that will served you anytime and anywhere their butler is nice and polite our butler before was Moman the moreno guy there he is good he can understand well and follows direction. During night you will amazed if you will be having your dinner in your balcony you will be amazed with the lightning bugs who is flying everywhere it seems you are in Palawan perfect and just memorable. We can't forget our wonderful escaped in this resort. Everything is just wonderful the prices of their food is just worth to the taste of the food they served you. I will highly recommend this beautiful resort to those lovers in Paris. It's perfect especially if you know how to appreciate nature beauties. Good luck and happy planning.

Room Tip: Choose a front beach room
