Serenity at its finest

Best three things about this hotel: Food, Location and Cost or Value for Money
As always, Luca's made me feel welcome and relaxed. The place's quiet beach and the authentic Italian food has always drawn me to it. I couldn't ask for more.

Relaxed stay at the end of the world

beach, restaurant, quiet place
The guesthouse is at the end of the road, end of the beach, end of the world - there are only mountains behind it. That creates a wonderful hideaway place to stay. The lodge itself is divided into few 2-storey buildings attached to each other and connected with terraces. It is just a down-roll to the sea. But i couldn't get rid of the idea that it was built few years ago and since then no maintenance was done around the rooms. We stayed in family room which had 2 double beds, fridge and TV but only one opened wardrobe for cloathes. Shower was only cold and very weak. WiFi connection was available for free but quite irregular. With little improvement it can give much better feel. We stayed in upstairs room which had beautiful sea view but was pretty hot. But A/C is available.

Quiet relaxing beach

Nothing much for hotel
First off the trike wouldn't take us to the nearest where to be dropped off we literally have to walk and hike in the dark just to get to the beach front and walk a few still to the resto. I've been to Luca resto beach before and I always enjoy the good there always! But the hotel was a disappointment to me. Well the room is a standard family room.. Which is okay since ts cheap. But the CR was horrible! It smelled like sewer the whole time !!! I can't even sleep proper bec it reaks with the smell! And of course no choice but to use it. Then no more staff when resto closes at 10pm. So can't get any remove of room if ever. It did rain a little then when we wanted to go out for drinks everything is dead dark and done. I think it's only okay to eat here. Maybe stay in this beach but not his hotel.

Tired old italian themed beach hotel

Beach, Sabang, Swimming
This tired old Italian themed hotel is lacking in maintenance by the owners who just seem to lie around and do nothing. The room they gave us was so hot even when the aircon was on and the room was very average. The food is not really very good and we tried their seafood pizza which was a big disappointment as it was full of mussel shells that had sand in it and after that not much else. There are other much better places down the beach to stay. You need to carry your bags as their is a very steep climb to get up and down from the hotel

Slow service if any

Silent location, quite spacious family room for 2 person, close to the beach
Poorly managed resort. There were actually no service though there were lots of personnel e.g. in restaurant. Personnel were discussing together, sleeping on tables or playing with mobile phones. Our room was not cleaned even requested so we gave then trash bag to them. But still after that nothing happened. garden area was dirty e.g. used diapers, empty bottles to name a few. Location is silent so if you any action this is not your place or you need to arrange transportation always elsewhere. But arranging things in this place... Food was good but that criteria is not enough after this experience to go back again or recommend this to anyone. We didn't expect any luxory but this was not even close that we were expecting to get with that cost.

A simple place away from the hectic white beach

Decent beach area
Stayed over a weekend. The family room had one double bed and another double bed which was smaller. they will add an extra mattress on the floor at an additional cost. the breakfast was definitely a plus.
