I agree to wizofwall and colindmdl that you will be greeted at the port upon arrival if you will call the hotel prior to your arrival because we were greeted too. But the person who greeted us is not their staff. He is a tour guide offering boat ride, scuba diving etc etc. I bought my voucher from cashcashpinoy where the deal posted that the rate for family room is 48% discount. I paid 2,592.00 which should be the discounted rate of 48%. But only to find out that the rack rate for family room upon my arrival is only 2,600.00 inclusive of breakfast. Again, just like john a said, the breakfast is just a coffee and juice.

Very nice. Greeted at port (texting ahead), good food, quiet, nice view, A/C + fan good, nice pool, nice staff,....considering it is Philippines and the rate we paid, it was great compared with our stay in Sabang last year in a different place.

Re the previous comments from the disappointed reviewer (john a). You expected to be greeted at the port upon arrival like all the others? You might find that they, just as I do, call the hotel prior to arrival, either from the banka (boat) or from Batangas whilst waiting to board. Advice I gave in a previous review.

Sabang Hill Resort was not my choice this year for a couple of reasons. This being low season, few hotels would ever reach capacity, hotels are desperate for guests.

I sent the hotel numerous emails trying to clarify costs and possible discounts, they never replied to the discount requests for a booking in excess of 7 days, when they did reply they quoted a price of 2200PHP or $52 a night for the superior room ( a price increase of 10% on 2011).

Sabang Hill then requested a 50% payment of the total stay price upfront, to be sent via CHAPS international bank transfer, thus adding to the costs because of bank charges. Last year the hotel accepted PAYPAL which did not have these added costs or surcharges.

This hotel has become overpriced for the quality and services offered. I stayed elsewhere in Sabang this year for $50 a night, receiving a full breakfast, wifi in the room, 1kg of washing per day, met at the port etc etc

My advice is to search online the hotels in PG, ask for discounts and compare what you are getting for your money. If all else fails you can wait until you arrive and walk into the hotel, ask for best prices. At Batangas Port in the passenger waiting area there are several desks located, these are staffed with ladies touting for the Sabang hotels.

Arriving exhausted and very hot at the port from our 4 hour bus/boat journey we expected to be greeted and helped from someone at the resort like all the other guests at their respective resorts.. but not us... so we are dripping in sweat wandering around looking for our resort.. after walkign about 1/4 mile dragging our luggage we finally find the alleyway leading to sabang hill and proceed up the equivelant of 4 stories of stairs... ready to pass out finally reaching the lobby the several staff members happily greeted me by name revealing that they knew i was coming... so why they didnt help us at the port? now they practically fight over each other to help me with my luggage for the last 15 yards so they can get a tip.. i refused to let them and was in nearly a tug-of-war over one of them on my luggage. We booked the supreme room which the pictures shows has romantic lighting etc.. those lights were broken in our room. and even one of the electric bedside torches didnt have a cord long enough to reach an outlet... so disappointing on that too.. Price included "free" continental breakfast which was only juice and coffee? anything else was extra !! what a ripoff ! we checked the breakfast menus in the other places and all their continental breakfast were standard fare including eggs, toast etc, but not sabang hill ! so we refused to eat at sabang hill. we left the room a few times for short time and came back to find the tv on and the aircon off ! they watched us and decided on their own when to come and turn our ac off to save them money. so we are roasting all over again starting from scratch trying to cool the room.. the shower produced only a trickle.. super hard to use it with so little water pressure. if you have kids or elders or anybody less than completely healthy in your party then dont book this resort as you could wind up walking the equivelant of 7 stories of stairs to get to your room. overall dissatisfied.. will never go back to that place again. and in case you need wifi it only works in the lounge/lobby.. doesnt work in the room. additinally, the only thing remotely close to a 'fitness' center is the walking up the stairs you will do.

Walk in rate was a little bit more expensive than Agoda. We had a standard room which overlooked the pool area and had a sea view. Room had everything we needed, safe, tv, fridge, aircon/fan and balcony. Room was clean and was serviced everyday. Breakfast was included which was toast/tea/coffee or orange juie and then you paid extra if you wanted egg or bacon. Staff were friendly and helpful when offering advice on things to do. Would highly recommend and would stay again.

A fitness gym is important to me while on holiday, but there is none here, and the staff had no clue what I was on about, you will be faced with a 6km treck to the nearest gym, so i will not be staying here again. That said, the local staff were very nice and friendly and the rooms with views are very good indeed, but it is a wee bit over priced for what you get. If mobility is an issue, forget staying here, the winding steep access up the steps is challenging for those with issues.

Room Tip: I stayed in room 20, great view of the bay here.
