Near to ferry. Sea view. All sea tours depart in front of the hotel. 24 hours open reception. In the center of the city. .
Water pressure was very low in the tap. It was difficult in use. No hot or warm water in the shower. To take shower at night was difficult.
I liked that the breakfast was complimentary and cooked well! The staff was very accommodating when it came to tours and information. They helped us with directions and renting a motor bike, etc. most of the staff was very friendly and they picked us up from the airport for just 300php (less than 10 bucks). The location was amazing. We could walk to everything. There is a lot of construction going on so there was a good amount of noise during the day but you’re also on a main road so that is a given. They offered to clean our room every day and the breakfast view was quite nice.
They overcharged for bottled water, there was not hot water in the shower either. For the first week we stayed here, they only gave us a top sheet for two people and no blanket so it was uncomfortable. Offered just one pillow per guest so if you want to chill in the room, there is nowhere to comfortable sit down. The staff was really nice and did their best to make things easy for us. I should note that I purchased the sea view room and when we got there, they put us in a room that, while facing the sea, was located behind their other building so we couldn’t really get a good view of the ocean. They advertise the sea view room as the actual room by the ocean so if you book that, make sure they offer you that specific room. The biggest thing was the smell from the bathroom. I understand there’s not a lot they can do because the pipes are old but it reeks of sulphur so we kept the door closed the entire time. It is my honest opinion that you get what you pay for at this hotel. If you are picky by any means or like some nicer things, look elsewhere because we definitely ran into a lot of different tourists who found other affordable options by a beach that you can swim in. You can’t swim in this water right by the hotel because there is ecoli. You won’t see any signs for that right by the tourist spot but if you walk less than a mile down the beach they have posted signs for ecoli warnings in the bay. My point is, you get what you pay for and there are other places available. If you’re going to be gone all day then this place is fine. We were here for over a week so please trust my opinion. Overall-our stay was alright.
It’s in the city center. Staffs are super helpful. They are would assist you in everything. Breakfast is superb.
Location, price, friendly stuff.
The breakfast is very good and the view from the restaurant to the bay is very nice. The staff is friendly
Upon check in and arriving at the room, we realized that our room had very large cockroaches. The staff tried to kill the bugs and gave us a bug spray for the night and cleaned the room the next day
