We stayed 2 nights at Pontefino Hotel in Batangas City for our annual Christmas vacation. The hotel is very nice and very clean. Staff were very courteous and helpful. The hotel is just less than a kilometer away from SM Batangas City and the Church of the Most Holy Trinity which is very convenient. The facilities available to guest includes a workout gym and swimming pools, and jacuzzi. The only complain I have is the morning breakfast which consist of only one entree, scramble eggs, garlic rice and the usual toast bread and a very limited selection of fruits. Not only that, we have to wait for the kitchen to bring out the entree (first breakfast was tocino and second was adobo pork & chicken). The staff should have anticipated the shortage and bring out more of the entree. Our breakfast took us more than one hour to eat when it should have been only 30 minutes. There were no massage service but I guess it was because its Christmas day. The hotel provide daily newspapers from Star, Inquirer and Bulletin. It was a very relaxing stay for us at the hotel.

I'm told that this is the best hotel in Batangas. To be honest, it's OK, but along way from being 5 star. The check-in process was OK, staff were friendly enough and the room a good size and clean. On a couple of evenings, there was alot of noise from an adjacent bar/club.
It has a good size pool (but I didn't use this) with sunbeds available. The gym is large for a hotel, but not very well equipped I'm afraid. Not enough variety of equipment or heavy enough weight to make it worthwhile.
Evening meals in the hotel where good, no complaints, but the breakfast "buffet" was very limited and disappointing. Addtional dishes, like bacon, could be ordered but at additional charge.

The rooms are superb, berry spacious, with living room and kitchen. It feels like a studio condo, probably slightly bigger than most studio condos in Makati. I was able to exercise in my room, since the gym was quite small.

It had a bathtub. The amenities inside the bathroom include: toothbrush, soap, shampoo and shower gel. It has a bathtub and bidet.

The pool is big., with separate kiddie pool.

Breakfast is very limited, though. Coffee is great.

Our second stay at Pontefino, we have been happy with the hotel both times. There is nothing outstanding about this hotel location-wise although if you have to stay in Bats city it is the way to go. The rooms are getting a bit old but are still very clean and large. The service is ok but not amazing as is the food at the included breakfast.The pool and gym are definitely above average. I will stay there again but mostly for a lack of choice.

Please, look the pictures here from customers, it's so true. The pool is dirty, I've never seen them clean it and we've been living here for six months. The bathrooms and the showers near the pool are just disgusting. The gym is really bad: some old machines never clean in a small room. My husband and a lot of his coleagues had a terrible rush on the skin but in the hotel they just smile you and tell that you a only one stupid who has it. The rush stopped after weeks of treatment and when we finaly mooved to one of the houses and refused the room service. The restaurant is good but expensive. The stuff is very nice. Oh, I almost forgot about a big number of workers everywhere: around the pool (just in front there is a construction), near the gym, on all territory of the hotel.
