88 is a Hotspring Resort and can easily access for it is on the national h-way going to Los Banos . We celebrated my departed sister's Birthday last September 21-22, 2019 and we are all 20 .and we took 7 cottages which is not so beautiful but just enough to enjoy sleep and the coldness of the aircon but outside is also cold because they have so many trees . If you love nature this is the right place. The place is full of trees and at the middle are the swimming pool and jacuzzi . There is free breakfast which everybody enjoyed for they have Korean foods . I can say that we enjoyed what we have paid for and to me ti is cheaper than other resorts and hotels. For sure i will come back here .
Room - I booked the bamboo suite. I had to pay for 1 extra pax (ad said room is good for 4pax).I was given sets of towels for 2pax so I had to ask for another set.Request denied- I was told that 1 extra hand towel is all they can offer me.Bathroom needs a thorough cleaning.No phones in the room to communicate with the staff.You are given mobile phone numbers to call should you need some help.Beds are terrible. Hard as rock! Had an awful night.
Food - Korean. I may accept that since it is obvios that the management is Korean. But please offer and serve more variety. Exactly the same dishes are offered during lunch and dinner.Breakfast buffet is poor.
Pools- water temp is good. Thanks to that it kind of mended my sore back because of the hard bed. But pools needs some more maintenance
Garden- I guess the gardener is the only one doing his/her job well.
I am giving you 1”circle” just because I cannot give you a negative number....
An ideal place for a family staycation. The place is clean, pools are warm, staff are friendly & lots of foreign guests, Koreans mostly. I think what we enjoyed most is knowing that the water really came from the mountain, a natural hot spring.
We went to stay overnight at our unkept private house. We all expected for everything basic as it is our fault to have kept it unmaintained, but it's all good. What got us so bad were at least 5 other private pool neighbors had karaoke all night! Even with windows closed, the noise penetrated!With all the shrieking voices, I had to look for somewhere else to stay the night. 88 Hotspring is literally outside the subdivision. It was the best respite for such an unfortunate night! Yes, it is pricey,but I'd take it any day just to get some decent sleep. The pools etc. esp the unli Samgyupsal for breakfast made for an awesome time! I will surely be back!
We stayed overnight in an executive suite and we really loved the place.
It is well kept with plenty of greeneries..... a good place to relax and escape the city noise. At the time of our visit, they said the place was fully book but we didn't find the place overcrowded so we really had a nice stay.
The hot spring is really warm / hot and there are numerous pool to choice from.
The only negative I could say (although petty, would still be good if management addresses this as tjis add up to the overall experience of visitor) ..... we have for 3 extra adult but the mattress provided is 2 single. We also need to ask for extra pillow and towel as we were only given 4.
Common sense would dictate that if you pay for 7 people. Expect 7 pillow, 7 towel and 7 mattress/bed to sleep 7 paying customer.
Aside from this minor hiccup, I would still recommend this place for its serenity, for being close to nature and the hot spring.
