The pictures on their website are very deceiving! Those pictures were probably taken many years ago when it was newly built! Currently, none of the pictures show the true rooms in person. The place is run down. Maybe many years ago, this place was alright but not now! You will be very depressed once you see this place. There is nothing inspiring about this resort. It is not a resort either because all there is, is a swimming pool in the middle. The ocean is perfect for the fishermen only, not for strolling or playing along the beach. Not even for just sun bathing! DON'T FALL FOR THE PICTURES LIKE WE DID!!! WE SAW MAJORITY OF THE VISITORS LEFT THE NEXT DAY. THAT IS HOW TERRIBLE THIS PLACE was! WE PAID FOR 4 DAYS, but we made the decision to LEAVE THE NEXT DAY EVEN IF WE DID NOT GET A REFUND FOR THE PAYMENT WE MADE THE RESTS OF THE NIGHTS/. WE THOUGHT WE WOULD RATHER LOSE SOME CASH THAN TO CONTINUE TO SPEND THE RESTS OF OUR VACATION DAYS IN A VERY DEPRESSING PLACE. OUR PLAN WAS TO BE INSPIRED AND HAVE FUN...NOT TO SUFFER! IN MY OPINION, THE WEBSITE SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM THE INTERNET BECAUSE IT DOES NOT QUALIFY FOR A RESORT.
I REPEAT, THIS IS MY OPINION!. //blr from U.S.A.

Room Tip: No room is less terrible than other rooms. I REFUSE TO RECOMMEND ANY ROOM! IN MY OPINION..this place is not for tourists!!

It was my first time to visit Dumaguete, and my friends and I chose Sta Monica because of its history, and that it is still a favorite place of old timers of the city. Though the place is is still being renovated, the rooms are clean and homey. The staff are good and accommodating and are doing their best to give me the best and pleasant stay.

Nice place for a break from the noisy & crowded downtown Dumaguete. Lovely pool, nice and comfortable rooms, staff is friendly, happy and relaxed - there is no need to hurry.
The buffet dinner was fabulous - blue marlin steak, kinilaw( marinated tuna chunks)salad and assorted seaweed dishes.
But if you are a sandy beach lover, you won't find a single patch of sand there - the beachfront is too rocky. When inquired about the beach area improvement the manager said the issue is under consideration. I visited the place in September, 2008, when it was called Sta.Monica Beach Resort. Probably by now they did something about it.

We enjoyed our weekend in Sta Monica, a good choice since it is still very close to the city (5-minutre drive) yet very quiet and feels far from it all. It helps that it is right by the water (but not a swimming beach), and the coastal trees in the waterfront, in the gardens beyond the pool make the atmosphere very inviting. The rooms are clean and okay, and it helps that the airconditioning is well-maintained. We also tried their seafoods, and was very impressed! Grilled squid, oysters, and shirmps :) that are fresh and well-prepared.Looking forward to returning there again!
