Nice getaway
Beautiful property, quiet and peaceful
I enjoyed my stay at Hof Gorei very much. I had 2 nights of the best sleep I can remember in a long time. All the food I had was excellent, staff were all warm and friendly. The pool was excellent as well. A few things worth noting, over at ST Ana Wharf you will be constantly pestered to buy things- I recommend you arrive very close to departure time so you don't have to deal with that for too long. I was about 1 hour early and hated every minute of the wait. The ride over is about 70min each way, so be prepared for that. I would have gladly paid extra to travel on a speed boat with cushioned seats- to cut that time in half or 3rd. Once at the property, no worries, nice place to spend time. It is pretty isolated from the main road on the island, not so much for a sight seeing trip- my wife and I paid to be taken to the bat cave and falls sites on a couple of 125cc mopeds- my rear took a beating, as far as I can tell, that is the only way you can get to the main road- be prepared if take the mopeds- it is a rough and bumpy ride- fun if you are up for the adventure.

costly worth it?
lovely grounds, fair beach and nice pool
The hotel provided a boat from Davao to the resort on Samal a hour's trip. The canbin was cute and in good order.I wanted a shower and there was no hot water, so I waited until later.I asked the staff and they said yes there was no hot water in that cabin.They told me that it's the only one without hot water.I was very angry I was there three years ago paid about the same amount throught I had a nice room with hot water and free breakfast.I complained and they let me shower in one of the many empty rooms.I will never go back to this resort again.

Nice staff
Having a personal butler
The food is nice. It was also good to have a personal butler since they don't have phone to accommodate all concerns. The room was spacious though needs a little bit of furnishing.

Nice place
quiet location
This is a very peaceful and unique place. If you are looking for a relaxing and romantic get away this is it. Upon arrival you will be assigned a personal assistant who will cater to you throughout your stay. The rooms are very comfortable and the beach is good too. Don't be fooled by the inexpensive price - after you take your meals there (there is no other option) and tip your assistant the price will go up but it is still not bad for what you get. The pool is OK and the food is very good I will add.

Nice natural view, but not much activities
The attic room view on the ocean
The view from the attic room on the ocean was fantastic, but the beach activities were not much maybe coz there was no season that time. The restaurant is ok with its food but not all the varieties are there. The pool looks great also, but there were no pool bar, music there etc. I think they needed some night activities on the beach to be performed.

nice hotel, very quiet, large rooms
good service, great food but no internet except on wharf
At first my wife and I were disappointed that we seemed to be the only people staying there but it only seemed that way because of the layout of the rooms and the extent of the lush garden environment. This is not a place to stay if you want nightlife, disco and all night partying. Its a quiet place and very romantic, we would stay there again.

Romantic Setting perfect for a honeymoon.
You have a personal assistant for your whole stay! Cool!
Very private with a nice room.I love the glass of the windows, you can see the Beautiful view outside without the worry of people violating your privacy. Perfect for a good honeymoon. But it is definitely not a place to go if you want a good swim. Beach is a port, not a swimming place and it is difficult to climb up and down from the hotel room. But I do like the Chalet room. it is very nice, it is worth the climb.

Wonderful Location
Fantastic hotel with wonderful views
This was our honeymoon destination and it was beautiful. Highly recommend this resort as a quit get away with many options. Great snorkeling around island and close by islands. Did the inland island tour but encourage you to get your own motor-scooter and a map rather than go with the hotels guided tour. It only goes to 2pm and then they charge you extra each hour and you will run out of time to really enjoy the bat cave, waterfall, and water park. Do Dinner on the beach, watch the moon set, enjoy the tranquility of this wonderful hotel. Oh, If you don't like going outside to use the restroom then stay away from the hill huts. They are cute but have to go up/down stairs outside for CR.
