I took my skis in for a tuneup and repair of a bubble on the ski. Sarah, the head technician did a marvellous job of fixing the problem and tuning the skis. Kudos to Sarah and her team! Although it can take a while to get through the initial gondola line from the parking lot to the base of the hill, it is absolutely worth it. The conditions are gorgeous!
I stayed at this place with my wife for 5 nights. We are long term travelers. - location: the hotel is a bit far off, you will need to rent a scooter at the hotel to explore the area. Currently, roadworks makes the access a bit difficult but possible - staff: lovely staff that genuinely takes care about you. The receptionist (Sam) was really helpful with transportation advice as well as for any other query. - rooms: rooms are spacious and serviced daily. The AC works well and is silent (any long term traveler will know the value of this). There are blackout curtains and the beds are quite comfy - food: we loved the food at this place. The menu clearly displays the German ownership of the hotel and the portions are European sized but local food is available as well. - surroundings: the pool is clean and very nice, the area is surrounded by resident bungalows to which you have no access. All in all the hotel is value for money, certainly partly due to its location... …
We visited Bohol in May 2019 and although we enjoyed the restaurant and the resort seems to be well maintained it was a disappointment to find out that staying guests doesn’t have the same value as the resident owners in the resort. We have been approached 4 times during our stay by a guard telling the kids in the pool to be quiet because resident owners might be disturbed. The ridiculous part about this was that it always was either at 9:30 am or 6 pm. Both, in my opinion, times that aren’t early nor late. The reply of the staff has always been the same „it’s because the resident owners are all foreign“. As I’ve been working in the hotel industry for over 20 years now this is the very first time I have come across such a rule. The kids, by all means weren’t noisy as kids can be at times. There were no complaints by any other guests or resident owners and that is why I can say with absolute certainty that the noise level was acceptable at the least. Again, my issue is that as a business you can not diminish your guest‘s experience in such a way. It was quite offending to us and when asked if there was a manager around the answer was no, since the owner were on holidays. And apparently no one else who was in charge of operations. In my opinion they shouldn’t be operating as a hotel at all and focus purely on their residences since I also understand that the resident owners might be difficult to deal with but again, noise isn’t anything you can avoid in a hotel, can you? To be honest without that laughable rule we would really love to come back and also recommend the place. Staff were friendly, food was good, and rooms are great for the price value.…
The one star is for the pool. The pool is great the rooms are basic with a bed a small table a small fridge and that's it. Air condition is good and blow direct to your bed. Food in the hotel is very tasty but it needs patience, now the bad side ...location is in the middle of nowhere on a bad dirt road next shop, restaurant around 10 minutes drive....service it starts with the lady show you the room, no explanation about ac,tv,save here your room and turn around and go, a and the room is considered pool view and queen size even without a queensize bed and balcony to backyard not to pool, the room dont get cleaned every day but dont expect if you go out at 8am and come back at 3.30pm that it's done... the rent motorbike for 550 pisco (in town for 400) but the need the money because without any maintenance and cleaning the need to replace them fast. …
It's difficult to reach this relatively new establishment as it's two or three kms of dirt roads, with the last kilometre having potholes. Food however was great, staff good and room had good aircon, a comfy bed and very clean shower, plus a balcony. WiFi good. A loud party from one of the residents was a problem one night, but worse was the German owner who doesn't treat his Filipina staff well. This is also a problem in other hotels in Philippines.
Great value, practical modern rooms, mattress is however low quality, pool is fantastic, food is good and fairly priced, staff is all really friendly. Big issue is however that the only access road to the resort is unsealed and in really bad condition, especially after heavy rain. It's best to have your own car when you stay here.
Owner was drunk, shouting on the phone, shouting at his staff, had our server in tears, room was filthy, owner was impossible to talk to about changing us to another room, insisted we wait for it to be cleaned, after a 7 hour flight we were exhausted, last thing we wanted was to be waiting at 5pm in the lounge with the owner george insulting his philippino staff, I would never work for a scum bag foreigner like him, I am philippino but dont look it, so his insults were angering to hear, I wanted to report him to the buisness association, first step is to write this review to other travelers, beware of this place, the owner has no clue about running a customer oriented buisness.
What a Terrible experience. We were recommended to have lunch or dinner at this place by a friend All was going well then a complete crazy rant from a person coming from the kitchen area. This person then came out abusing staff and acting as if he was the commandant of a German concentration camp. We asked so some staff what was going on and were told this is very normal that the person was the Boss and his name is George. George you are a complete disgrace and should not be treating the beautiful people of the Philippines like this. Wake up this is the 20th century, not the 1940s. We will never return while you are in charge nor would we recommend your restaurant
This complex of 24 hotel rooms and 56 homes (many of the latter occupied or owned by expats) is isolated, being about five kilometres from Alona Beach on a sometimes very bumpy gravel road that is partly being concreted. A typical one way tricycle fare from Alona Beach is P150 although the hotel charges a very expensive P200 per person for its one way shuttles nightly at 1800, 1900 and 2000, returning from AB half an hour later. They will however ring for a tricycle to come and pick you up for P150. We were initially given room 15 but the door lock was defective so after one night we switched to room 15. Both had a pool view and were on the second floor (Australians would call it first floor). The balcony lock There is a modern Schindler lift. The room had free drinking water available in the corridor from a dispenser. Aircon in room 15 was cold and efficient but not quite as good in 14 despite the same Samsung units. They were almost noiseless. The beds were thick form, OK but not exceptional and had a top sheet. An extra sheet - not a blanket - was available from reception. One room had a bedside table: the other did not. Both had a table and chairs in the room plus same on the generously sized balcony. There were curtained shelves plus a poorly designed small electronic safe that I struggled to properly work out. The TV was flatscreen and modern and had an excellent range of cable channels including international and some movies. The minibar was in stainless steel and modern while minibar beer was P80 and soft drinks P50. The bathroom was very roomy and had excellent quick hot water. The shower lacked any screen but water stayed within it. White towels were in good condition save for a face towel that was stained. The handbasin was fine but only a small bar of soap was supplied - no shampoo or conditioner. One could buy latter at a high price from reception's shop. The bathroom had a good long shelf, so often missing in other hotels, on which to store toiletry bags. It did not fog during ablutions. Breakfast was not included in the P2300 per night room tariff. On the first morning, the fruit platter was not available but I asked excellent waitress Beth (who was very friendly and who is 21 years old) about it and next morning, presto - a terrific assortment of watermelon, pineapple, mango and one other fruit for under P200. Smoking was allowed on the five outdoor tables. This should be banned but unfortunately most German owners I have come across allow it. It stinks! Some of the other restaurant food was only fair. WiFi was fast in the resto area but highly variable in the room: sometimes OK though. The pool is huge, beautifully maintained and a standout feature: not over cholrinated. Most enjoyable to swim in with some banana lounges submerged in a few centimetres of water near one edge. The gardens are pleasant but some shrubs need to grow more. The bar area had a very cliquey atmosphere as some of the male residents use it as their local pub. There is a billiards table and a small gym, plus a travel agency that did not seem to be manned. The party at house number 3 that went on until 0130 one morning was infuriating, and culminated in an 0230 hours argument between a male Caucasian and a Filipina that saw a door being slammed. I informed German owner Peter about this but he didn't immediately offer a partial refund as many Australian owners would. I find this typical of German owners of tourism properties: they are efficient but lack some customer skills. There is ongoing construction at the 4th floor penthouse form 1000 to 1700 most days but it is almost completed. Of 24 rooms, 12, 10 and 13 respectively were occupied on the three nights we stayeed, not bad for off season. It rained one day very heavily for 90 minutes but apart from that was sunny. Tessa at reception was also helpful. All in all a great stay but marred somewhat by the noisy birthday party, so I have marked it down from 5/5.…
