We stayed here overnight.
The hotel is easy enough to find. Enough signs are posted on the road.
At the hotel there are a lot of parking space probably because no one stays here. We arrived on a sunday and only 4 cars including ours were parked. The 4th car was the hotels Nissan Patrol.
The guards were courteous. Especially the door man/ guard who greeted us every time with a smile. The staff at the reception were accomodating. We noticed that there was a sign promoting a 10% for Petron card holders. We got the discount without any fuss from the staff.
The lobby was a bit gloomy, possibly because it was insufficiently lit. It was clean but the lack of patrons made it feel weird.
The room: we got a superior room on the 2nd floor (room 206). The size was aptly sized for 2 occupants. The bathroom immediately caught my attention because it looked unclean. The grout around the tub was "moldy". The shower head was tarnished by what seemed like dried mold or rust. I also killed 1 fly in the room and there was 1 cockroach staying in the room with us. See the pictures. The linen that covered the bed smelled funny like it was not dried properly. And lying down it also felt moist. The Airconditioning unit (window type) was placed about a foot off the floor which to me is unsafe since it will blow off particulate matter on the floor and can be an Asthma/allergic hazard. It was able to cool the room after about an hour on full blast. Room amenities included 2 bottles of water and coffee, 2 soaps, 1 shampoo/conditoner, bubble bath soap, lotion, and 1 dental hygeine kit (for a couple occupant). They never corrected this. They had heated water. No slippers so bring your own.
Breakfast: complimentary plated breakfast since there were not enough guests to justify a buffet. The Tapa and Bangus (Milkfish) was good and properly proportioned.
Pool: 1 adult and 1 kids (3 feet), heavily chlorinated. If you have sensitive skin be aware of the chlorine.
Game room: Pool table, air hockey, mini slide, table tennis (poorly maintained condition). The air hockey was not vented properly so the puck stuck frequently. The pool table had lumps.
Gym: inside the same game room. So be ready to see sweaty people when you're playing pool or air hockey. (Hazards: wires and plugs are exposed so watch over your kids. You also have to plug the games yourselves.)
Playground/ obstacle course: huge ground for kids to play at. They have slides, rope climbs, wooden planks, etc. Just watch over your kids since some of the equipment go up to 6 feet high.
Zoo: small zoo/ organic farm for kids.
PWD Provision: ramps and elevators.
P.S. when I left a personal item in the room, they prompty returned it upon checking out.
