Breakfast is not buffet which is practical for them but offers lesser choices for the clientele. The location is quite far from the town but nearer to the airport. The room is clean but the lights a bit darker giving a gloomy appearance.
Best breakfast in Dipolog Hotel”
I have stayed in other hotels in Dipolog such as D' Hotel and Gwandalan (Bed and Breakfast), and free breakfast is one of my standard of comparison. This hotel has the best breakfast and they also serve lunch and dinner with superb food and lots of culinary choices. Aside from a full restaurant, there is a coffee shop where you can sample cakes, pastries and "budbud with hot chocolate". I enjoyed my 5-day stay here. This hotel is always fully-booked. It is a stone's throw from the airport and there's lots of parking space. Staff are well-trained and courteous. It is best to bring mosquito repellent when you go outside, near vegetation and even the lobby or hallway rest rooms.
The walls allow the sounds of people talking to pass through. Cockroaches infest some rooms but they moved me immediately. A lot of mould in shower. Water and electrical problems at times but I think its normal. This hotel I think was once a higher class but as its become older or perhaps as less people visit its has been somewhat run down. Despite the problems it was excellent value for the price I paid. I stayed for 5 nights....
I enjoyed my stay at Ariana. The room was generally clean and spacious with spacious closet (although it would have been nice to have more hangers). The room was clean and the bed always well-made, but the reason I am only giving 4 for cleanliness is that I saw very tiny ants on top of the refrigerator cabinet and the desk. Location was good, very close to the airport but not that close to the center of town. The facilities were good too, but hairdryer is not provided (not a problem for me because I brought my own), and there is no lift to the second floor, so if you have a heavy luggage, choose a room on the ground floor or ask for assistance. Breakfast was good, and the ala carte food at the restaurant was tasty.
My wife and I loved our stay here. The location is great, being very near to the Airport. Staff were all so helpful too. Food at the restaurant was also superb, we kept eating there for dinner nightly for our entire stay!
1st trip to Dipolog”
Ariana Hotel is a walking distance from airport, funny I was pick up by Hotel Shuttle as part of their service. Hotel staff are very accommodating and naturally kind. This hotel is convenient to go around Dipolog City & Boulevard. Very quite town but I went to Sangkol & Dapitan for another accommodation to explore which is perfect for my holiday.
The Room is just okay.. ”
I've seen better for a 2,500 worth of room.. no rugs to use after you get out from the shower or after swimming.. no slippers to use! The floor is sticky.. but i know it's just a minor problem but I'm hoping for the management to fix it! Over all the stay was great.. the hotel is super clean! And the pool area is just perfect..
Very good ”
I only stayed for one night, but the hotel ticked all the boxes for me although the food in the restaraunt was nothing to get excited about. However the staff make you feel valued and the rooms are extremely comfortable. The garden surroundings, including the pool are so welcoming and relaxing, making it less of a hotel feel and more like a resort. I will definitely stay for longer next time.
Elegantly decorated with serene surroundings”
We stayed there for 6 days and 4 nights and all we experienced were elegant accommodation of low cost, all-around and very courteous staff (its as if they were highly qualified for their positions) and mostly efficient services. We suggest that you book your accommodation at ariana hotel through agoda for lower cost. We were able to dine at their very elegant restaurant and we repeatedly ate at their bakeshop, our expenses amounted to only less than 2,000 (2 persons). However we suggest that there be an improvement to the cake and drink provided by their bakeshop because they serve them with too much cocoa that's its almost bitter. We commend their chocolate banana crepe though! They have the most serene ambiance and their staff, especially Ford, was very accommodating. Its located less than 5minutes away from dipolog airport. We strongly recommend this hotel to Dipolog guests.
Decent hotel but not worth the money”
biggest con is the bed is too small...its a semi double bed and two cannot sleep comfortably. City center is far but they provide one way shuttle service. That is a plus. The restaurant decor is nice but the food is average. Best thing on the menu are the smoothies. The only thing that makes this hotel desirable is the pool...and never crowded.
Very bad service”
The location was fine. Interior design is impeccable but cleanliness was not observed. The bathroom had so many molds and had a bad odor. There was no hot water and water pressure was low. There were no hangers available. Mugs were not replaced, the a/c was full of dust. Housekeeping was unresponsive, if you called, it would take too long to answer. The staff was also unresponsive and needs more training. They do not assist patrons with heavy baggage. One of the person in the front desk would refuse service right away without checking. Was it worth my money? Definitely not. Would I come back? I dont think so. The only thing I commend about this hotel is the concierge as it was the only one that was accomodating to the customers.
room was very nice and relaxing environment
Another wonderful stay at the Ariana. Our meals were very good. The staff is wonderful.
short walk from the airport
DO NOT BOOK THIS HOTEL!!”
Rooms are not sound-proof so you will literally hear the conversation in the other room. Hence, I did not get much sleep!! The drainage was bad in the bathroom. The pool had too much chlorine so you know that they hadn’t changed the water for ages. Seems like no CCTV in the hallways. Also, their plated breakfast choices were very limited and they served me not fully cooked tocino! I had to get attention of the staff many times and it was pretty damn obvious they were ignoring me as we were like, only 3 tables all in all inside the hotel restaurant!! It’s not like that it’s packed with so many people but they just literally ignored me!! I had to bring my plate up to them angrily as they were TOO LAZY to attend to the clients!! Also, the porridge they were serving on our 2nd day stay was already tad cold and even the bacon and the french toast were cold. Tried eating during lunch as well. Their beef salpicao was hard to chew so I had a pretty hard time finishing it up. Won’t come back
This is my second stay at Ariana. The location is perfect and the hotel staff are very helpful. The only issue we had with the WiFi connection which we notice work perfect in 1st floor rooms than 2nd floor. Over all I ll definitely stay here again and recommend the hotel for other visitors.
the staff has a ready smile on their lips and will greet you warmly.. their deluxe room is spacious and the bed is comfortable.. but it's better if you don't stay here alone.. why? you'll fined out during your stay.
hotel near the airport”
It was good in terms of proximity to airport. It is just that the towels look so old. The linens from cover to sheets are all with stains. If you will go to the city for business meeting, getting a tricycle is not easy.
Very Good Value”
Very nice stay. Have stayed in many of the local hotels, having gotten married there 19 years ago, and this is the only one I will stay at in the future when I visit Dipolog from New York. The room was "basic and no frills" but clean and comfortable. The Staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. If I asked for 2 things, they'd do 4. They are gems. The pool was cool and perfect to relax around and swim in. Food was very good. Airport just about 300 yards. Easy walk to City. Hotel met my plane by surprise with name placard, saving my wife, daughter, and I trouble. A/C shuttle to City if you don't like walking is no charge. It was my first time staying at Ariana, and it's the only Dipolog City hotel I'll stay at in the future.
Was married there exellent day with no complaints,”
was very nice, except honeymoon suite cancelled I think because owner arrived with family, so they gave us garden suite for free.Communication in restaurant very POOR, every breakfast ordered came incorrect because of language problems and my wife is Filipino. Poor wifi I mean really POOR.no kettle in room but staff quick to bring hot water to room. Apart from that we had a beautiful time. And the wedding went off perfect, thanks to the staff on the day.
