I'd like to preface this review by stating that at first glance the hotel pics complete with pool, garden etc had me really pleased so I promptly booked a room there through The Agoda website. Soon thereafter I had my very first uh oh moment.....
About one hour after my receipt of my confirmatory booking/receipt I got another email from Agoda Customer service informing me of a......er problem. Aparently despite completing the booking process (and my cash) the hotel I saw on the website did NOT exist! The hotel was sold but the owner offered accomodations at another sister hotel which was also owned by him. I then negotiated free hotel transfers and the use of the purchased accomodations at yet another property.
The other hotel quite naturally lacked the pool, accesible garden, resto etc. and in fact was a bit of a disapointment in that it was basically a run down shell of a formerly quite beautiful mansion styled edifice.and my room a third story walk up. The air con was loud, the furniture well used/dated and the restroom rather antiquated. To give you an idea of the experience there was no toiletries not even soap. Great thing I always travel with an abundant amount.
In the immediate areas it was can I say a bit dull? Only restos in the area was a Jollibee and an Inasal. Nothing to see and even less to do in that area. Would I do it again? Probably not. Pay attention to the reviews folks. Many you CAN believe!
