“Ok hotel for a night”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013 via mobile

We spent a night there before taking the ferry to Cebu.
The hotel is clean with hot water, and quiet. Ask for a room at the back, so you won't be bothered by the noise from the main road. And try the restaurant Casablanca in the Main Street for the great tomato soup if you have time!

Coco Grande is really for business travelers. Quite more expensive that the average Dumaguete Hotel, it features an almost Mexican-villa like interior. BUT they do not have a pool or lush greenery. But what they lack in amenities, they make up for comfort and convenience in travel. They have a resort in Siquijor and Apo Island, and they have a restaurant in Dumaguete, so they can pretty much arrange your trip. They could've improved on their customer service though. I mean, it's not poor, but for an expensive hotel, I expected more.

We chose this hotel because it is a walking distance to Silliman University and ten minutes by service vehicle to the airport. Shopping centers (Robinsons and the local stores), restaurants/bars, and seaside area are accessible by a quick tricycle ride (minimum fare P9.00). The rate goes with complimentary breakfast and wi-fi. I like the interior of this hotel- rustic with earthen jars, bricks, old thick wood, native furniture-rattan and drift wood made. I noticed too, that a lot of paintings and frames decorate every nook and corner. That's pretty good. But if you think about food, try your luck somewhere else. They should fire their chef or they don't have one??? Their poor cuisine performance is compensated by the huge room - nice bathroom with hot and cold shower, soap,shampoo & lotion, small refrigerator and flat T.V. with cable. Our room has two clothes cabinet, a dresser with big vanity mirror, a counter table, a dining table, two single beds and one queen-size bed. The beds are comfortable enough but it would be better if the bedding be refurbished. Their towel should also be replaced with newer ones. To sum it all, this hotel with excellent location is good enough (reasonably priced) except for the bad food and old towel.

Nothing exceptional about this hotel. When you come from its sister hotel -- coco grove in Siquijor -- you'll feel that this hotel is below standards. Food is not very good, no complimentary water, no other amenities. There's coffee in the room but no water heater so you have to order it from the kitchen.

However, they have hot and cold shower, tv, ref, aircon and a very comfortable bed. It is also at the heart of the city, near the bay area and Silliman University if you want to take a stroll.

Everytime I stay in this hotel, my friends wonder why I continue to do so. The hotel exterior is impressive, but that's about it. The rooms are past their former glory and badly need a makeover. If not for messy bessy mosquitoe repellant, I wouldn't survive the stay. I don't understand why year in and year out, they can't seem to care about the mosquitoes getting in the rooms. The baths often clog up and my toilet has backed up on one occasion. Their food server in the morning is too strict about the meals. I am vegetarian and he won't swap hash browns for the meat I forego simply because they already give me extra mushrooms with my rice. It's such a waste if no one bothers to fix this hotel up. Such a beautiful building and area it is in.

A lot of hotels now in Dumaguete City, but as I usually come to Dumaguete once a month for business trips, i would always prefer to stay in Coco Grande Hotel. I've tried almost all hotels in Dumaguete, yet, I was not happy with the service and the rooms. Other hotels may have new rooms but very small. I can't breath.. I once stay in this Coco Grande Hotel due to fully booked rooms of other hotels and I would be staying their for my next trips... Would be my home in Dumaguete... Staff's we're so friendly, helpful and resourceful. Very kind and rooms are wide and clean... So guys, you better check it out...

Location: the hotel's location is situated just right at the heart of Dumaguete city. One would only need a pair of slippers and some sun block. Its just 10-15 minutes walk away from Silliman University and only 15-20 minutes away from the shopping malls through pedicabs ( motorized tricycle) as they are popularly known in the local dialect. The only down side is traffic. Due to its proximity to one of the biggest universities in the Visayas Island, traffic can be worst during class days, at 7 am, 12pm and 5pm. It is a 20 min ride from the city night life, clubs and various bars.


Service
Hotel services are basic...no pools gardens and lush landscaping. It is a stop and go hotel suited more for business trips than a leisurely vacation. Good to nite though, the hotel can arrange a trip to Siquihor island through its sister hotel and resort Coco grove.

Staff
Hotel staff are friendlier compared to other hotels...based on experience, they are professional and courteus.

Rooms and ambiance
For travellers with a taste for more edgier and more modern decour this hotel is not for you. The hotel has a more antiquated feel to it. A classy refined taste of art paintings, antique decours and dim lighting...adding to a hint of subtlety to a classic well orchestrated ambiance.

The rooms are huge, huge beds, spacious comfort rooms and closet. Space is not an issue especially with the family and suite rooms.


All in all it is a good find. But be warned thia hotel is an acquired taste...there are travellers who would not enjoy the classic aura it exudes, some look for that exact experience.
