I knew that their economy rooms does not have bathrooms, only a common bathroom. I was not aware that the common bathroom was basically the pool side shower and toilet which is 20 meters away from the room. I think the economy rooms were part of the original staff house that they made into rooms. I would not complain if the poolside shower and toilets were clean and descent but it was not! The toilet was clogged and the showers did not even had locks or hangers. I had to brush my teeth in the shower. If you go to the bathroom and it rains, you will get wet!
SERVICE - I had no complaints. The staff were helpful, no doubt about it.
VALUE - Rooms already includes breakfast for two (food was fine), free use of WiFi in the restaurant or reception area and the use of the pool. They have a power generator but it could not power up the air conditioners. Ample parking space if you brought your own car.
SLEEP QUALITY - The bed was fine. Thought the bed sheets were like thin.
CLEANLINESS - Generally clean except for the poolside shower and toilet. They have to renovate it. The headroom is too low. Was it built for hobbits?
LOCATION - Good if you want to be near the town center of Mambajao but it can be challenging to get there especially at night. It is like the last major building in the area. After that, it is pitch dark at night. If you take a motorela (a motorcycle pedicab), you have to pay extra because it is not part of their route. It is easy to locate the hotel by just remembering Rizal Street. If you are not used to walking, this is not the place for you unless you have a hired vehicle. The hotel is located along the sloping side of Mambajao.
ROOMS - Again do not get their economy room!
Would I go back again to Villa Paraiso? Probably but would not get their economy room anymore.
