Not very impressive from the approach, in what looked to be a pretty run-down area, but what a difference once inside. A very nice reception area, excellent friendly staff, a very nice pool, bar and restaurant. The room was falrly basic but had very comfortable beds, TV, air-con and an adequate bathroom. We were offered welcome drinks, not the usual watered down juices that many hotels offer, we had a choice of beer, spirits of fresh juice. My gin and tonic went down very well. But the highlight of our stay was the fantastic restaurant. For dinner we had lovely fresh baked Italian bread with an olive oil, garlic and parsley dip, My wife had baked snapper in a delicious sauce with a good serve of steamed vegetables, I had chicken picata which was chicken breast fillets in a lemon and white wine sauce with mushrooms, fresh capers and butter noodles. The best meal we had had after three weeks in the Philippines and total coast A$18.40. There was no traffic noise and we enjoyed a good night's sleep. Breakfast was another gourmet treat. Two big, fat English sausages with scrambled eggs, farmhouse potatoes and home baked bread with jam. Mango juice, fresh brewed coffee, absolutely delicious and only A$9. Chef Chris is a wonder. We were allowed a late check-out at no charge. While waiting for a taxi to the airport we tried some of Chef Chris's home made gelato, yumm, yumm. I highly recommend this hotel and it is worth going if only for the food.
