This was one of the worst hotel experiences of my life and I don't understand how this place has so many good reviews. For 150 usd (quite a hefty sum in a country like the Philippines), we had a dirty room and a bed with a foam mattress. We were 3 girls staying in the deluxe room with attic, but we didn't realize before arriving that one of the "beds" was in the attic. I put "bed" in quotes because it's more like a giant round love-seat with a very thin mattress. To get up to the attic you have to climb ladder-like stairs and basically crawl in. The ceilings of both the main room and the attic were covered by loose fabric, which made the whole place really dusty. I was scared of touching the fabric on the way up to the attic being afraid of what creatures were breeding in there. The bed of the main room was also very poor quality, the mattress was thin and uncomfortable. I kept sliding toward the middle of the bed during the night. I was waking up with a back and neck ache every morning. They don't put the blanket in a cover, they only put a loose sheet underneath; I'm not sure if they ever change or wash the cover. The lighting in the room is really poor and I wonder if they do that to cover up the general run down look of the room.
This hotel is a total rip off. Friends staying in other beach-front resorts with nicer and cleaner rooms paid just a fraction of what we did.
If you want to enjoy your beach holiday and to keep your sanity, I suggest you move on, and book one of the other 200+ hotels on the island.
