Samboan was not part of our original itinerary but after seeing photos of Dao and Aguinid Falls, we thought a visit to this little town in South Cebu is a must.

There are quite a few places to stay in Samboan. List of accommodations can be found on 'Samboan Guide' mobile app. We had a couple of places in mind however when we enquired about their rates, it was a little outside our budget so we ended up staying at Gorion Beach Resort.

Rates in Gorion are: P700 for a double room with fan; and P1000 for a double room with A/C. Cottages are old but it's clean with comfortable bed and pillows, flush toilet, cold shower. It's located right on the waterfront, approx 5 minutes walk into the town centre.

We were so thankful to have chosen this place to stay as the caretaker of the resort, Alex, knew the way to Dao Falls. In fact he can be a guide, if need be. Guide fee: P200. We normally like to do things independently but we were not so keen to take chances on Dao Falls as all we had was a vague description of how to get there. It didn't sound easy to find and it was not. Some tricycle drivers may be able to take you to the village where the hike starts from but not all of them know as I noticed when we took the tricycle, Alex had to tell driver which way to go and which turn off to take. Dao Falls is definitely worth visiting.

For Food: There are eateries in town centre of Samboan but the lady who lives next to Gorion (Ate Karen) can cook food at a very affordable price. Just don't order too many dishes as the serving per dish is huge.

We arrived at around 9 pm and we were welcomed by the owner himself and the very accommodating staff. We contacted them in the morning and we really appreciated that they stayed up late to wait for us and provided us with instructions on how to get there since the resort can be a little too hard to find. The room rates are very affordable. We booked 2 rooms one for 1500 and the other for 1200. I have no complaints about the room except for the the aircon which we cannot adjust the temp on. Aside from that, everything is great about the resort. The best thing is we were allowed to use their kitchen and utensils we even used their rice cooker, refrigerator and stove. The owner is also very friendly. 2700 was too cheap for all the erks we got from the resort. They even allowed is to stay way past the check out time without paying extra charges! Two thumbs up for Gorion Beach Resort!

We didn't have a place to stay in for the night but I remembered it was suggested by my workmate . We are on a special budget on that day so we tried to look for a fan room that costs P500 but there's none instead the care taker offered us to sleep in an air conditioned room for the price of P750 but it was really P1,500 so it was a great deal, I think. The room was not that great but I'm still satisfied. The caretaker was very accommodating.

We did not have reservations when we went to Samboan and ended up staying at Gorion Beach Resort.

While my expectations were low, the resort was still a disappointment. If not for the kind staff, I would have given this a 1 star.

Accommodations
We arrived early in the morning. We were told the room would not be available until 12 NN so we went falls-hopping and arrived back at past 3 PM. Sadly, the room was still not ready. They had nowhere for us to stay in despite our “basang sisiw” look as from Aguinid Falls, we went straight to the resort in the hopes of freshening up. After 20-30 minutes, we were led to our room, which needed repainting. It also had wall stains, battered furniture, and a noisy aircon. The tiles on the bathroom were yellowish.

Tip: Bring your own toiletries and towels. None was provided.

Beachfront
We were out most of the day so we never got to swim by the beach. We were told it was swim-able but on the times that we were there, the waves were strong and high. The views were beautiful though come sunset.

Service
The people were all nice, typical of Filipino people especially in the provinces. They were all very helpful but needed training.

In closing, what Gorion Beach Resort offers are just rooms to sleep in. Its location is ideal because it is near Da-o, Triple Drop and Aguinid Falls and the town proper, but if you want a quality resort when in Samboan, stay at Fantasy Lodge.

Dont expect too much this is just an ordinary resort...If you want a place to crash, this is the place for you.

The resort looks old but newly renovated interior like our choosen room was spacious & clean, it can accommodate 5-7 persons for only Php 1,500. The bed cover and blanket smells good and looks clean. The bathroom was nice and toiletries are available.

Short orders are availble so far it taste good. Meal is Php 100/head. Videoke is Php80/hr.

Above all what makes this resort extra-ordinary is resort's owner hospitality.

My boyfriend and I had booked this resort for two nights. The room was not very clean and the aircon not working well. No shower or hot shower. They have like canteen but it was not really like a canteen, I was confused. The sorroundings was not clean also. For sunset viewing it is nice but Ide stay somewhere nicer than this and go to the restaurant where I can sit properly and look at the sunset. The owner of this place should decide to continue his business and make a huge cleaning and renovation or just stop it.

Natalie and her family were so welcoming to me and my partner! We came across her guest house unplanned as we arrived in Samboan not knowing what to expect! It is a small village with little tourists other than at the main attractions which include a handful of beautiful waterfalls and we also visited the mainit hot springs! The main reason we had such a good time was because Natalie and her family are the nicest and most hospitable people we met our whole trip! Very honest and helpful with information on where to go and how to get around and also an idea of what we should be paying! The room was excellent and food that Natalie and her family freshly made for us on request was beautiful! Anything we needed she would have it bought to our room and also a small store was located directly outside! We had great fun and even had a sing song on the Karaoke machine! We stayed with Natalie for 4 nights and enjoyed every minute! Thank you for welcoming us into your family and I would highly recommend this guest house!

Gorion Beach Resort was a nice surprise. The owners were so sweet and attentive to whatever we needed. Breakfast was included and set up so nice every morning. My friend had some allergies to a few things so they went above and beyond to make sure he was taken care of. They also had a sweet motorbike they let us rent for super cheap. This is a great area if you are wanting to see the hot springs and all of the waterfalls in the area. It has basic amenities but it has a great energy to it. I highly recommend.
