“Just average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2013

We got a room that was good for 6 and it was clean and spacious. The bed was hard and the pillows are too soft as it seemed that the stuffing inside was inadequately filled. For the price we paid I would say that it is just worth it and nothing to shout about. The bathroom is clean and they put 6 pcs. of soap and 6 pcs. of shampoo. Their free wi-fi is fast and the signal reached our room so it is a plus point for the resort. I just hope that they would display their room rates at the reception area so everything would be transparent. They said that they are offering a 10% discount but how would we know it if in the first place we don't know the base price of the rooms. The breakfast served was good and other food at the resort were delicious.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2013

We stayed at Maxine before and after he stay over at an island. We checked all the hotels around Maxine (Lucap) and all of them were the same and from our point of view not worth the money. Finally we stayed at Maxine because they have a magnificent view at breakfast and dinner. In general the waiters were helpful but later we realized that they charged us double the price on the Internet page from Maxine. After we asked them they lied to us, what is a no go.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2012 via mobile

We went to see most of the hotels on offer and except for the Vista Islas this was the best - everything worked and the shower was better than most budget offerings in Philippines - the food was pretty good at the Restaurant and wi-fi would have been good in the rooms - great location and close to harbor for tours - special town
