Nice to be away from the noise of the city, very nicely landscaped grounds. The food was great as was the friendly staff. The rooms are spacious and comfortable but they are showing their age. The patio had new furniture but the screen door had holes and it was off the track. Otherwise a very pleasant stay.

The hotel provides basic amenities. Security is good, you will really feel safe. The rest of the staff are friendly and hospitable. They greet you most of the time. The room, though, can be further improved or upgraded (specifically, the bathroom). Its good that that there is wide space for a walk, but I hope that the beach can be...

Nice but you need to level up your dessert. Make it more unique, delicious, and presentable. If you serve the dessert today do not use it to tomorrow and serve filipino foods despite of the travelers are foreugn.

The setting is great, but the beach full of rubbish. Front desk and breakfast service excellent. Don't bother to dine in as it took well over a hour for our food to arrive. Bar staff was confused about Gin & Tonic! Rooms spacious but air conditioner very noisy and could not adjust the temperature. I continued to have problems with...

Airconditioning unit is not working well. We tried to call the attention of the maintenance department, though they are prompt to attend to our call. We stayed for 2 nights without aircon. Even if they adjusted the said aircon, it did not work well.

Great grounds, pool and view. Rooms are large with private balcony. Staff friendly and good breakfast included. Would stay again. Even though its an older hotel the grounds and room size make it. Loved the large room. Bathroom and amenities
