“Optically pleasing, qualitatively lacking”
Reviewed 7 October 2012

Stayed there for 3 nights on business in the Lagoon "Suites" (about $100/night). Check-in and check-out process tediously long, especially the check out (front desk staff took about 15-20 minutes to add up various room service charges with Slow Lori-like movements).

Room quality was equivalent to a $50 room in Phuket (much reminiscent of the CN Hotel Patong, - shoddy workmanship especially for a newer wing, loud a/c, dark dungeon-like moldy bathroom with water pressure comparable to the blood pressure of a crocodile, an ant colony that kept me company thorught my 3 days and basic lack of functioning amenities.

Food - mediocre at best. Expect a wait of about an hour for your order to arrive at the room (30 minutes slightly faster if sitting in the restaurant, steaks are low quality and done-ness instructions ignored. Salads are ok, as are the pastas.

Staff attitude - overall nice and helpful with no unecessary tip-sucking actions/services

The pool was probably the only real outstanding feature of this hotel, clean and quite large with a good design. The blue night time lighting of the compound is also very serene.

Overall, an ok hotel for the usual sex tourist type that frequents this town and has some more money to spend on accomodations that will seperate him from the rest of the budget punters but not a good hotel for family or "respectable" business persons.

In my opinion they should really do a better job of transparency - it is obvious they only want sex tourists to stay there so they should not try to disguise themselves as a "resort"

Room Tip: Garden rooms are filthy and old, avoid. I asked to be moved after an hour.

Been staying here on a few occasions. They have recently built a new wing, where the rooms are of higher standard than the old rooms in the main building. The old rooms are 3900 pesos, which is extremely overpriced compared to other places.

The better rooms in the main building are much better, but heavily overpriced. You can get better or equivalent standard rooms for a much lower price. And for Philippines what you get doesn't justify the high price. Hopefully management will take a notice of this review.

Otherwise the pool area and pool itself is a perfect place. And the food is reasonable. Can recommend the Sotanghon Soup.

Perfect hotel for fun vacation. Staff very friendly and helpful. Extended my stay, upgarded room,
never a problem. Front desk even printed baording pass for me.

Beautiful pools and grounds immaculate.

Restaurant very good for this area, pleasant and friendly service.

Only drawback may have been some inconsiderate guests who were very loud in restaurant and
pool area, but that was an exception for only a short time.

I will stay here again.

Room Tip: Request new Lagoon Section, upper floors.

This is my second stay of a week or so here, the staff are very pleasant , the rooms functional and clean. The housekeepers are hard working and I have really grown to look forward to staying there. I love the fact that i can invite a guest to relaxed comfortable surroundings in what can be a very nice family atmosphere. My only criticism of the hotel is the poor wifi , this was also experienced by guests in rooms next to mine as we were all outside trying to find a signal. Perhaps changing the password regularly may assist as it was the same 6 months ago and i know of people logging in from outside.

I had the absolute pleasure of staying at this Hotel from 10th May 2012 until 14th May 2012. Fantastic Hotel, Staff extremly friendly and polite big smiles all of the time nothing was too much trouble.. The pool area was great and my room was on the ground floor with direct pool entry. The 24 hour bar was just great, food great... I would highly recomend this Hotel. My only gripe would be that they need to create suite rooms ( seperate sitting are and DVD would be great ) nBut overall a fantastic hotel..... Thank You to all The Staff at The Wild Orchid Resort!!!!!!!!

this is a very nice hotel and place to go
beware now that they are making your guests leave lately
if you check in and have a friend or girl or girls visit you at the hotel
they have been telling them to leave lately and not letting them into the swimming pool???
dont really understand why they are doing this
i think they have expanded and now want to keep any friends or guests out of the swimming pool
and only want the person paying to use the pool
my girl was told to leave the pool and not allowed to be in the pool without me there in the pool with her??
i talked to the management and they said that is to control use of pool
?????????????
maybe another hotel is better as they will not hassle your girlfriend or guests that come to visit you
like abc hotel

They have added a floor to the top of the new section, construction is over and it is complete! Even with a whole floor added onto the hotel, they are. Booked pretty solid! As I said, and other reviewers have said, always ask for a logging room, aka the new section. I actually refused to stay in the old rooms one night, checked out and waited till next day when they had room available.

Room Tip: Ask for a lagoon room! The rooms in the old section on the hotel are not worth the price! The best r...
