Terrible customer service. Overpriced to begin with, we made a deal to pay slightly less per night if we stay for 5 nights but couldn't bear staying all this time. The sheets were stained and when we asked the staff to change them they just took them without giving new ones. The beds are full with bed bugs and the staff and owner were rude and demanded we pay full price even with the poor conditions we had to sleep in. Below a photo of what you see at night when you walk the staircase...

I thought when i booked this hotel we will have a good or better experience. Eventhough we only stayed for a night, the experience is somewhat in the bad side. I have to mention the good first. Location of hotel is best - near to everything we need. Location of room - beachfront Swimming pool is ok - cleanliness is maintained. It's beach front alright - there are benches where you can unwind and relax. Bar at their roofdeck. Cool! we can see the White Island from there. The bad side. Room was really noisy and annoying because the waves aren't relaxing during the night. It stressing us.(but i can't complain, its nature) Room was not air conditioned (i guess i missed this in the specifications) but a fan room. The Electric fan was dirty as well. It's ok if the windows are open, cool winds comes in and the mosquitos too. However, it is very hot when closed. The fan wasn't helping and noisy too. The bathroom was shared by other rooms - Missed this in the specs also. But the good here is that we were the only one using at that time. I thought i struck a good deal because its cheap. But on second thought, its very expensive because its only a fan room. Add a couple of hundred bucks and we could have a better room in another nearby hotel. In fairness to them, they also have air conditioned room but on a higher price.

I stayed there in 2016, it was ok for the money. I just stayed again 2019, and it’s not good at all. Smallish room with a temperamental shower. A single bed sheet, very very thin. Ants about the place too. Outside the room dogs were residing there, sleeping on customer seating and on customer tables. The WiFi only works in reception area, but that was often occupied with staff eating meals there. Sunnbeds and tables and chairs are all made of concrete, impossible to move. Staff meeting very early in the morning, very noisy woke me up. The beach cafe which I loved having coffee and snacks in previous years was closed. Generally the place seems run down and needs a good clean. Very few other guests were there and no wonder. Very dissapointed to see the place go down to this level. Staff were ok but not motivated to attend to guests with one exception, don’t know her name but she was so understanding of the problems and did her best to make my stay comfortable as possible. My advice ! Move on it’s lost it’s way.

I stayed in the hostel accommodation at Medano, 10 persons room, for 400 php/night. I thought it was cheap, but you get what you pay for: the one and only bathroom/shower veeery dirty, no toilet paper, no soap, no hangers. There is no safety lockers for valuables, the ac is not working, the room has 6 sockets for charging phone etc but only 3 works (2 sockets were needed for the fans)...

I like the place but not the room we rented. We have bed sheets as our blanket, small safeguard soap and bad towels. Nice pool, have beside beach area but too much gabage around. No water heater inside the room. If you ask for a cup of hot water you need to pay. Restaurant are poor choices of food. The owner was not hospitable at all. He was chasing for money, He keeps dragging his chair every early morning at his room that really disturbed us because we stay at the room under. The sing along really irritating sound specially at night when you want to have a rest. I like those girls who work there and Carl but that is no point. Importante, the guest needs to satisfied the stay and accomodation.
