“Fun and well-run themed hotel”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

Florentina Homes is designed for families or big groups as it offers 2 bedroom suites complete with a kitchen, living room, terrace and laundry area.

The rooms and grounds were well-maintained and very clean, and you can't beat the price because what you'll pay for your suite is probably cheaper than most hotel rooms in Manila or Cebu. Thank goodness that there are still places in the Philippines that don't jack up their prices just because they're tourist destinations.

Loved our suite but the food was a letdown. Maybe I just chose the wrong stuff because everyone else seems to be raving about the menu. But FYI, skip the shrimp scampi, apple crumble and french toast. As a matter of fact, instead of staying in your hotel, explore the lovely and laidback Dumaguete City and feast on fresh seafood.

Stayed there overnight as my friend's fiance was visiting from North America. As mentioned in other reviews, they have Internationally-themed apartment hotels: Swiss, Spanish-Mediterranean and Tudor. There were 4 of us and we stayed at the Harrogate, a furnished Tudor-styled suite--2 bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, living room and balcony. There's cable TV, WiFi and telephone. It was clean, spacious and well-lit. Didn't like the AC in our room as it was quite noisy but the one in the living room was very functional and quiet, the split-type kind. As for parking, there's ample space outside. You need not worry about that. The compound has everything you need: Gabby's Bistro (great and affordable restaurant), The Oasis (clean and medium-sized pool for adults and kids), Rana Verde (cafe serving the best ice cream in town known as FIC or Fruits in Ice Cream) and Hotel Florentina (the newly-built Mediterranean-inspired hotel rooms). Check it out today! It's just 5-10 minutes away from the city center by trike or cab or car.

Just a little far from heart of the city, about 10minutes away via tricycle. Clean room with all the basics covered. Friendly staff too.

I was really happy when i stayed to this hotel. It’s beyond my expectation. For an apartment hotel located in the province i expect less, but to my surprise this hotel has a really good ambiance, their rooms are very cozy and homey and too much space for a group. I like their living room with the veranda. The apartment has complete furnitures with kitchen amenities. They even have stove so you can cook your meals. Although their rates is quite high compare to other hotels in dumaguete, but I find their rates reasonable especially for a group travelling. We paid around 3,000 for 1 apartment for 1 night. The apartment has two rooms, the first room has a queen size bed and the second room has a twin bed. Good for us since we were all 3 adults and 1 kid. I think this is the only hotel located in the city proper that has a well maintained pool. The pool is really good for kids. Not to huge, not too deep, not too shallow. My son really enjoyed the slide in their pool. Florentina Homes contributed good memories when i visited Dumaguete City after 10 years. Hey, their food is good when we tried their breakfast. They have a restaurant downstairs, and i think its pretty good coz lots of guests were dining-in. Over all rating is excellent. :-)

Me and 9 of my friends stayed in Florentina Homes (Harrogate and Salamanca Room) for 3 days and 2 nights. We had a blast! The hotel is very stylish and nice! The pool is very clean and nice! The food is great! The hotel rate is very reasonable, you really get what you pay for :) Its a home away from home. Theres a free shuttle to and from the airport. I will definitely recommend this hotel to my friends and my colleagues. I cant wait to visit Dumaguete and stay in Floretina homes again.

My family stayed for 3 weeks and the experienced was fantastic. It's like we are very welcome with the staff and the food is absolutely great. My kids are having so much fun at the pool and my family can visit anytime. It's an excellent stay and we absolutely come back.

Room Tip: Salamanca Suites it is in the ground floor. Easy access.

This is a stylish hotel made for families since it is 2 bedroom units with kitchen, sitting area and patio. It is a shared bathroom which is fairly small. The on site restaurant is very good for the area. The pool area is very nice. They are in the midst of expansion. Is is quite noisy. Plus there are many roosters to wake you up. Nice greenery for a city location.. .

Room Tip: Get an upstairs, 2nd floor unit for less flooding, smell and bugs.
