“12 Nights of Bliss”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

My wife and I spent 12 nights at the Shacene in February 2013. We stayed in their best 'luxury room' for P1500 per night. The room was in great shape in a newer building next to the main complex. (They also have several buildings across the street where their cheaper rooms are located.) Our room had an ocean view and we heard relaxing sound of waves crashing on the sea wall the entire trip. The staff at the hotel are friendly and welcoming. Internet is available in the main lobby and restaurant area. Bathroom and shower worked okay with the exception of the shower's hot water heater, which was finicky and maintenance had to repair 3 times during our stay. The food at the hotel is higher priced but we loved the taste of everything we ordered and there was always lots and lots of food on the plate! Overall we had a great stay here and would happily go back there. Located within walking distance of main street and gracery store is just a 5 minute walk. This is a hotel in a rural area(not cebu or metro manila) and one should not be expecting 5 star amenities. We did see ants in the room, but that is typical in this area - nothing to be alarmed about. I would stay here again without hesitation.

I've stayed here a few times now on my trips to Tandag. There's a reasonably nice restaurant with good food. Staff can be friendly if you are friendly with them. There's a newer section about 18 months old now (Feb 22/13) but a little pricier rooms and in my opinion not as nice because they are smaller and don't have as good a view. In the original section, I stay on the second floor, medium size room, bed not so good but has an absolutely magnificent view of the ocean from the small veranda. You must ask to have your sheets changed - fairly standard for less expensive hotels- There is no wifi to speak of although they do claim they have it in the restaurant, I've never been able to connect for more than a few minutes. They have a small pier over the ocean where you can have dinner, nice to watch the sun set. All in all probably the 2nd best place in town since the Villa Maria opened up but half the price or less.

Room Tip: Rooms on the second floor towards the ocean have a small balcony and excellent view!

Although cheap, facilities are somewhat old and rundown. Definitely pension house level service. Food at the restaurant is average. Limited amenities. Food in the adjacent restaurant is reasonably priced although average. Does not internet service.
