We were very happy with this hotel the first time we stayed there last May 23. They only provided the very basic amenities (bed, aircon, TV with cable, soap and shampoo, towel, bathroom with hot water) but that was OK with our family. We paid an extra P10.00 to get a thermos of hot water for our coffee in the morning. There was a nearby grocery store and a bakery where we got bottled mineral water for drinking.
Our family got the Barkada Room, which is good for 4 people, for Php 1,298.00. The place was clean. Because of these, we decided to stay here again after our trip to Bohol. Unfortunately, there were no more Barkada rooms nor Family Executive rooms (their most expensive room because of the presence of a refrigerator; good for 4 people; costs Php 1,398.00) left for May 25 so we agreed to reserve a Family Standard Room, which is good for 3 people and only costs Php 1,198.00. We left for Bohol thinking that the hotel would not be charging us for the extra person in the room anymore.
We were surprised when we got back to find that they were charging us Php 1,598.00 for the Family Standard Room! There was a Php 200.00 charge for the extra person and another Php 200.00 for the extra mattress. Luckily, my dad knows how to speak Cebuano so he and the manager were able to talk to each other about how unfair pricing seemed to be. We would be paying more than what they charged for their more expensive room. In the end, it was settled that we would be charged at the same rate as the Family Executive Room (Php 1,398.00) and that an extra mattress will be provided for our room. My mom and I were a bit miffed about the pricing. We still thought that we should have been charged P1,298.00 only because our room did not have a refrigerator. Oh well, after settling these issues, we decided to put those things behind us and enjoy the rest of our trip in Cebu.
