“2nd stay just proved I was right... its not worth it !”
Reviewed 26 February 2013

First time I stayed at that Camila (2) hotel in Dipolog there was ongoing construction works, so it was not fair to judge them on that stay... they did offer me 10% discount on account that the WIFI didn't work outside the lobby, construction work was ongoing and that the latter even resulted in workers entering my 3rd floor balcony at 8AM in the morning where I was sleeping with my partner.

I was back for a second time, and little had improved... no construction works, however WIFI still didn't work, and instead of the thrill of having noise from construction works, it came from one or two private parties in the garden besides the pool.

No discount this time, even it had been promised to returning customers last time (long story, but my 10% discount the first stay had come after long negotiations, not for the money, just for the principle), now they had changed the wording to regular customers being people visiting every week... I wonder how many they have of these customers, however it was obviously not something they wanted to give returning foreigner customers.

Its far from the best hotel in town by any measurement, except the pool and the garden ambience that seems to attract Filipino families.

Im will not be coming back...

It has a cheap room but it is to the highest level. It has great service that the staff are pleasing and always smiling. I love the way they handle guests. I love this place though sometimes its fully booked. I will be back here

We stayed at camilla for 4 days due to the floods in december 2011. Hotel looks like it needs a good clean, pool was dirty, bathroom had black on the grout and when i asked they be cleaned they simply sprayed air freshener around. smokers in the corridors made the rooms stink. Head waitress was picking her nose while i waited for breakfast, and they had no mango shakes. They didnt really understand english. good luck if u go there but I hope we dont have to again.

First I stayed at Camila 2 the first night but,I decided to transfer to Camila 1 the older building.Both of my rooms were clean and spacious and the staff were very accomodating and helpful since it was very time to visit the city.The location was right downtown and in the middle of everything.There's a Sunburst Restaurant on the ground floor but the food wasn't all that great.The Hotel have a free shuttle bus that goes to the Airport which is a plus.For a good breakfast go to Big Joe's Cafe.I think the highlight of my visit was seeing the altar of the Cathedral that the late Dr.Jose Rizal had designed.

Room Tip: ask for a non smoking room if you're not a smoker

On arrival at check in the girl on the desk seemed a little confused about the booking.
The room looked clean and neat
On going to bed that night, started to itch, bed bugs or some thing. Went to reception and told them, sent up some staff, and a can of bug spray. They stripped the bed sprayed some bug spray like a sprinkle took the can of the person and gave it a hell of a spray including under the mattress. They changed the sheets, well sort of, no top sheet.
Aircon sounded like a truck, and if set on six or below failed to cool at all.
Day two, arrived back in the afternoon, room was cleaned but I didn't notice until I went to have a shower before bed that they had not replaced the towels, this happened not once nor twice but three times.
Although only about 100 Peso and not a lot, but they charged for extra pillow, the pillows they provided in the room were like bricks, don't have a pillow fight with them, you might hurt someone.
Went for a meal in the resturant, walked out when the meal arrived, one very tiny piece of fish, four chips (French Fries) and four pieces of cucumber, made the mistake of asking the staff were the chips were, and they took it back and brought out the chips you get in the packet (cold) when asked were the meal was, was informed that, that was the meal and the french fries and salad were more of a garnish then part of the meal.
My Firlfriends meal was the wrong one. So be careful when ordering meals.
I did notice the pool colour change over the four days I was their, from very clear were I could see the castle on the bottom to not being able to see it at all.

Positive though had a Buisness room and the view over looking the back of the hotel to the mountians was very good.

Top Plaza next time, as my stay at Camila one was not very good either last time I visited
