Stayed with my husband and 2 kids in a superior room (203). Check in was fast and hassle free. Seeing my voucher (confirmed booking) someone asked me how I'd pay the balance, she corrected herself right away when she saw that I was fully paid already. Can't blame her really since usual cost of room is about 8,000 pesos per night but I only paid 9,000 plus for two days. A bargain really. It has two beds (single and queen size). The room has a feel of a 5 star hotel. The arrangement of the room was simple and comfortable. The bed cover and linen were white and clean. Nice comfortable pillows. Lighting is soft and warm. For a brighter room you may open the curtains covering the sliding door which connects the room to the balcony. The balcony has 2 chairs and a table, stayed here while having coffee in the morning or late at night, really nice. Enough drawers and cabinets to store away clothes and other stuff. The refrigerator was full with some drinks and snacks. Although we don't use hotel toiletries it was nice that they provide a complete set. They also provide bathrobes and rubber slippers I guess a size 7 and a size 9. Free Wi-Fi in the room was very useful for us, just ask for a cable wire at the front desk also for free. Cable channels a plus with disney, nick, cartoon network for my kid and axn, star, lifestyle to name a few for me and my husband. Breakfast was buffet, enough choices, my son loved the adobo. Aside from the towels in the room they also provide beach towels. I mentioned some mosquitos but it is manageable upon informing the front desk they send housekeeping to spray (multi-insect killer) the whole room right away. Check out was also a breeze. They also store our baggage for a few hours for free after check out. Cons - Has some mosquitos in the room but you can ask them for a spray and they will send housekeeping right away.
Best thing I love about the place: location, pool, spacious bathroom with bathtub, cozy and comfortable room
Restaurant Tip : Near Shakey's one of the famous pizza place in the Philippines, also near D'mall about 4 to 5 minutes walk. Various store everywhere, selling food, groceries, clothes and local products.
