“Please Choose Another Hotel”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2010

This hotel inbetwenn a house on the left and an elementary school to the right. Across is a shack and a little bodega. Don't get me wrong the hotel is very clean, but the window views made me squirm.

This hotel has no parking, no pool, no high speed internet, no business center, and no view!

I also noticed that there were many elderly foreigners staying at the hotel, and allowing young, Filipina, girls come and out of their room. Definitely was not happy with this brothel picture! Should've expected this by looking at their room rates!

I had unfornate encounter with the manager, when I refused to pay for drinks charged to my room. I had bought the drinks from the market, and placed them to cool in their mini bar. One of the maids made of mistake of counting the drinks I bought, and charged it to my room.
The manager refused to remove the charge from my bill, and threatened to garnish the amount on my bill from one of the maids. I was really pissed off that she had planned to do that. It's bad eneough that these maids make less $1.00 per day, and now she wanted to garnish $7.00 from their paycheck. This place is money hungry, and has no remorse for it's custumers nor their staff.

I would definitely not recommend this place to anyone! Pick another hotel or you will end up like me, writing a negative review on tripadvisor!

I didn't expect to find a hotel which is very affordable yet elegant and very nice in a faraway place from home. It is easily accessible and the location is less congested from vehicular traffic. The rooms too are very spacious. I highly recommend it.

We spent 2 nights at the Coco Grande and the hotel didn’t disappoint, it was centrally located – a short walk from the Silliman University campus, the boulevard and the city centre. The rooms were big, clean and well appointed. It had an in-room ref, free tea/coffee, cable TV and hot water – all for US$33 a night!
The staff were friendly and gracious – a hallmark of Visayan hospitality. We had delicious Filipino breakfast and so reasonably priced too! The rooms and the general ambiance of the hotel felt like I was staying in a nice, genteel house of a friend or relative. The staff helped us and got my husband his favorite Cerveza (from outside the hotel). They have WIFI in the lobby (for free!). I would recommend this lovely hotel to friends visiting Dumaguete in Southern Philippines.
