Would highly recommend ‘The Funny Lion’. We loved the surprises throughout our stay from 3pm afternoon tea, staff providing cooling mist spray and even a short complementary massage pool side. The staff we’re fabulous, asking any questions and going the extra mile. Ian on the upstairs bar area was great!

Only thing that would need improvement is the rooms are looking a little tidy, they just need a tad of paint and a few new bits and peice... but in the grand scheme of things this was nothing.

Would def recommend.

The Funny Lion is located just in the fringe of the city centre away from the crowds and traffic.

You’re greeted upon checkin with a cooling welcome drink that sets the tone of the environment of the hotel. All the staff are friendly and do their best to ensure you have a comfortable stay.

The roof top bar has great views with two jacuzzis where you can relax after a days touring. The pool is also very relaxing.

The food at the restaurant was a bit hit and miss, some great items on the menu but others were just average. Breakfast buffet each morning provided enough variety to keep us happy.

We had issues with the aircon in our room on the 1st night and were moved to another room whilst it went under repair. The rooms are large and the beds were very comfortable. The wifi in our room 201 was woeful, the signal was stronger around the pool and reception areas.

The hotel exceeded my expectations! The hotel and its facilities are top notch. Especially the hot tubs on the roof top, where you can watch the amazing sunset while in the hot tub sipping on their signature cocktails. The food at the restaurant and pride rock deck was delicious! Our room was clean and spacious, with a great view of the beautiful pool (room 211).

Overall I think the reason why our trip was so amazing, was the staff! They where very friendly and went the extra mile to accommodate our needs. My wife lost her hat the night before check out, and while at the port going to El Nido, a member of staff appeared with her hat. They where very honest on the boat tours that they provide and would not try to up sale you on a tour, but make sure you have the best experience!

We will definitely be coming back to stay!!

This hotel was probably the best of our 3 week tour. The pool is really nice, the food in the restaurant delicious and the hotel staff incredibly friendly. My girlfriend had birthday on the first day. We did not mention it to the hotel. However, while we were chilling at the pool the hotel staff decorated our room with balloons and they even surprised us with a cake. This was just so unexpected and attentive.
Thanks again for making our stay even better than great.
Regards,
John Michael

We stayed at this property back in 2017. My kids loved a daily brownie treat they would leave in our room.The place is very clean and well maintained. We were welcomed with drinks when we arrived. The daily breakfast spread is awesome and something we looked forward to every morning. All the staff are very nice and respectful as well. I definitely recommend this resort, it's worth the money you will spend.
