Very rough around the edges.
The staff were very pleasant. Breakfast at the wharf was enjoyable. Beachfront dining excellent.
We have been to other resorts in Davao and were, as a result, very disappointed in the standard of accommodation and amenities that we discovered at Hof Gorei. The caged animals were a definite low point! Equally disappointing was the pool. Although the pool itself was clean and well maintained the pool surroundings were insect infested and of a very poor standard of cleanliness and repair. The 'in pool' bar stools were a hazard as the seat was missing and the pole had been simply bent over. Ongoing construction was annoying and detracted from the relaxation aspect you expect in a resort. I suggest the owner concentrate more on acknowledging her asset - the staff - and spend more money on maintenance.

Spectacular views in a quiet setting
location, views, tranquility
We stayed in the Pinzgau Chalet which has a phenomenal view, and despite the somewhat arduous walk up the hill to reach it, it provided magical evenings on the balcony watching the sun set over Mount Apo, the occasional firefly, and a daily exodus of large numbers of bats from the chalet eaves. The balcony is also good for birdwatching during the day. The food is a little overpriced but staff helpful and attentive. Although other guests were staying at the resort, we seldom saw them, and it is an ideal venue for a couple to spend time together on their own. A well organized snorkelling/island hopping tour is available as is a clean swimming pool.

Nice and relaxing
Nice garden, ding othe beach, and wonderful butler name Rea.
Very relaxing, if you're planning to go there make sure to ask for Rea to be your butler. The only thing I didn't like about it is that their WIFI is on the warf. I think they should put it on the beach or in the bar, they will make money on drinks.

( I spent much time taking photos around, really nice place)

Near the sea. Nice view
Clean room, garden view and friendly staff
It was ok.. But not that i expected. Nice and friendly staff. If your a nature lover, youl definitely love the place. The view is spectacula especially when you go to jacussi on top of the mountain but the jacussi's not hot. So its kimda hard to take a dip coz the waters so cold. But the room and the food.. Its kinda expensive for the price. But the location is great for beach lover.

PARADISE
the personal butler with good service, Jacuzzi at the hill top, romantic place to relax especially the set up dinner by your butler in the beach front
One day is not enough to stay maybe 3 days is good enough.Personalize butler is very effective,, you feel like your a VIP which is very unique compare to other beach resort or hotel.Food is great but then very expensive.Nice design of room, the only downside is there comfort room with shower is very small and water is very slow.Quit place the only sound that you will hear is the sound of the bird, tress and ocean.The best place to relax and enjoy nature.

Great family getaway
Surroundings, Friendly staffs and Great food!
I never doubted my choice of stay, my stay at the resort exceeded my expectation. The food is great and you can even choose the location where do you want to have your meal. They have friendly and attentive staffs. There are some animals that my kids enjoyed looking at. I will definitely book my vacation again in Hof Gorei.
