“Perfect Place”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Wonderful location with fantastic view. The way up to the rooms is a bit exhausting but it is worth the view which you#ll enjoy every day. As well it is a really quiet place although it is right in the village centre. Friendly and helpful staff. We'll come back :-)

Room Tip: Take a suite room with a wonderful bayview. Sunshine will gently wake you up in the morning.

Staffs are very nice,they answer emails and sms messages promptly.I was quite inquisitive about so many things and they still answered my questions.

We had the suite room and the view was really nice,either for sunrise,sunset or star gazing it was a perfect scenery! There were just a few concern that we had to consider. I do hope you had phones in each room so we don't need to go back down at the reception to address our concerns/needs. The soap dish at our restroom kept on detaching from the screws so we had to find a way to secure it & prevent it from falling. The bed and douvet was really nice i just think it needs better cleaning,my boyfriend had bedbug bites good thing house cleaning are very prompt everyday.

None the less our stay was good

One of the best resort ever!! You can feel a very homey atmosphere, clean, beautiful and quiet place perfect to relax .. All the staffs are very friendly and always smiling.. The mini bar made our stay more comfortable, refreshment are within reach and with a reasonable price .. The food in their restaurant are great from breakfast to main entree down to drinks .. The rooms are well-maintained and they make-up the rooms every morning so when you go back to the resort its nice to lay down once again in their bed that is very soft with clean linen and blanket .. Another good thing is their swimming pool that is not high in chlorine but always clean and fresh .. Step is surely a highly recommended place, especially for Filipinos .. During our stay we have noticed that we are the only pure Filipino guest but their treatment with their foreign guest and with us are the same. Salute to the management and all the people of steps garden resort!!

Room Tip: If you are not fun of climbing stairs choose a room that is not located at the upper hill part, but...

Nice location with great views, superfriendly staff; you can tell Bernie who runs the place really takes care of his employees. Great food, both at the resort and at the restaurant in town.
We felt right at home at Steps!

The staff are very friendly. They take time to answer your queries. They always smile and greet the visitors.

Cozy room & so clean. I love the JR Suite room where we stayed. So cozy. Love the blankets so soft and so comfortable to sleep. We enjoyed our stay at room because when we opened the refrigerator, it is complete! From c2, to soft drinks to alcohol drinks. They also have chocolates and chips. Everything that you need!

I love the pool. Warm water with a small bar at the side of the pool. You can stay there and just relax.

Food is okay. We ate Kebab, Filipino longganisa & ham and cheese sandwich. The presentation of the food is nice.

There is this tourist guide named Tisoy, he is nice and very convincing. He is under Steps and Garden. He convinced us to go island hopping for 2500 ALL IN with food for lunch, snorkeling, fish feeding. They picked us on time at 8am. When we started our island hopping he said we still need to pay for kubo rent where we are going to eat our lunch. Okay fine that was just 200php. But wait there's more, when we are about to do our fish feeding & snorkeling the bankeros are still asking for 400php for us to rent a small boat! 200php each. Ugh. That is so frustrating, Tisoy (the tourist guide) told us it is all in, but why do we still need to pay for just a small boat. Ugh. Anyway, just a tip of advice don't entertain a tourist guide just go straight ask the "bankeros" if you want to go for island hopping. Good thing our bankeros are honest and nice. When we insisted just to go back to the resort to complain the tourist guide, our bankeros just decided to give it for free. Still we ended up happy and satisfied. They served us grilled chicken, porkchop and a very bigfish for our lunch at the other island. So delicious. The food is good for 5 people. So, my boyfriend and I decided to give it to our bankeros.

Outside the resort, bars everywhere. Hello night life.

Over all stay is fine. We are happy and satisfied. My boyfriend and I celebrated our Anniversary, and it turns out to be a memorable one. :) Thanks to Steps and Garden :)

I've been to Steps Garden many times (and 6 or so other places in Sabang) and I highly recommend it. There are many different styles of rooms and the quality of your stay may be influenced by the quality of your neighbor (likes most hotels) or your proximity to free range roosters (whoever said they crow at dawn? That is true but doesn't include the other 23.9 hours of crowing).

In my last stay (January 2014) my buddy and I rented the "Family Suite" at the very top. It is a gorgeous two bedroom apartment fully equipped. There are 120+ steps to get there but it is truly very very nice.

I've always found the staff to be very friendly as well as the owner. I've read complaints about the pool...it is small but I've never used it anyway. Some people have said the food isn't very good...seemed fine to me but I haven't eaten there very often and don't care that much.

But if you want a place where nearly every room/bungalow has a 180 degree view and you can drink a mig, read a book, chill, be close to the night life but not stuck in it, you should give this place a chance.

Room Tip: Two or family should go for the family suite at the top. By yourself go for an individual bungalow w...
