Front desk was very slow, We had to wait one hour to check in. Not Happy. Pool was not clean every day, water was not clear. Very noisy Saturday night because of wedding function. Not recommend to stay there when wedding is hold.

room 261 AC is not working well. The hotel knows that the AC in that room has a problem but they have let us use it still. They asked us to move in to another room but we were so tired to do it. Very inconvenient. They should have provided us a room that doesn't have issues with AC.

Overall the hotel is okay. However, it is obvious that rooms are quite old already. Rooms have a smell. Suggest for air freshner machines to be placed. Pool was a bit dirty during our visit. Water was hazy already. No hand towels in the bathroom. But food was great.

I was very impressed with the hotel staff. All were extremely courteous and helpful. Always a kind greeting from every single employee. Room had good air con and hot water which had been hard to find in some other hotels we visited. My only complaint is that the rooms are in need of an update.

Great service. Outdated rooms. Hotel unit needs to be renovated. The hall has a scent of old time era. The toilet is basic not what you expect from a deluxe premium hotel. Also, the tv is just basic and need to be updated with hd capability. However, service was excellent and food was great. My overall rating is 3 out...

The headline says it all. The rooms are old and dirty with mold throughout the bathrooms. There are no ground floor rooms in this hotel. Our seniors had to go up and down stairs to their room. This was a challenge that we didn't expect. We used two of the restaurants and found them to be average. We found that...

Very accommodating. One thing I think need to improve, add additional lights to the rooms and yung shower, medyo mahina water. Also, sobrang pricey ng food thats why we decide to buy outside. But over all, okay ang staff and ambiance.
