      Great hotel in Mariveles. ”

      Quite interesting to have the hotel staff entertain you with their own brand of dance. We had fire dancers in the evening and during breakfast. Not too many choices for hotels in the area, but this is your best bet. It is also designed by Leandro Locsin, and that's a plus in my book. Hotel should look into upgrading and modernizing it's facilities and rooms though.

      Mother’s Day special”

      My family decided to go on a weekend travel to Bataan for Mother’s day. The hotel is nice, just the right size but what I really like is their staff- very friendly, helpful and kind. Wifi needs improvement though. The rooms are big, and have a nice view; just wish there was a bath tub though. Breakfast is great- good selection of food! But the best is the mom’s day dinner where the manager approached us and i said that my Mother’s day wish is for my son to serenade me- and she made it a part of the program to have my son sing- and it was the best gift I got that day.

      Nicer Hotel for the Location”

      Kinda quiet when arriving. Slow time. Not all restaurants and bars were open, due to slow season. Nice pool. Solid 4 stars. Unusual shaped Hotel, two circles. Nice restaurant outside, overlooking the bay. Pleasant stay.

      GREAT hotel and very historic (in the Philippines resergence towards a nation)”

      I truly like this place. It was built during the Marcos era (1974) and I am both a hotel professional and a history "nut". The design of the place is fantastic and very "high end" in the '70s mode. The Oriental has done a great job. The key would be to keep the staff off of their cell phones (a key problem in all hotels in the Philippines). Deluxe rooms are in the "basement" of the front.....so keep that in mind. Food is "fair" at best. The pool is great actually and the location and view were really excellent. When in Bataan, we will return for certain.

      Room was great, water pressure in the bathroom was good. Lots of places to hangout and lounge in the hotel. Free breakfast was ok. Overall, it was a nice stay. One staff took a photo of us, without permission and I had to ask what was it for. The staff said they were documenting the guest??

      The location of this hotel is quite remote but the staffs are willing to get you a tricycle to the town proper if you do not have any car. The facilities are excellent, with a swimming pool and lots of sun bed (useful for summer). The hotel is inside the FAB complex, and ca. 1 km to the town proper.

      still the best place to stay in mariveles”

      You don't get many options when in Mariveles, and for the time being, this is the best hotel you can find in Mariveles. Overall, the hotel is good. Rooms are good size, the staff, the food and the facilities. It is an older hotel, but it has it's charms. Breakfast is decent, staff is good, pool is nice, and their two restaurant choices are good. Again, the best place to stay when in FAB, Mariveles.

      Good hotel but needs improvement”

      Generally the hotel was good , however, there are things that need to be improved . There was no staff who assisted us with our luggage when we arrived at the hotel. The water heater did not work in the morning, so it was a struggle to shower under the cold water. Also, there was no bath tub in the bathroom.

      Great Hotel in Boring City”

      The hotel was great. Clean, friendly staff, good amenities. Breakfast buffet was awesome. Pool was nice with poolside bar. Outdoor obstacle course is fun. # restaurants and ok wifi. But it has to have that stuff because there is nothing to do in the city. If you stay here dont bother leaving the hotel. If you want the beach its about an hour a way so might as well stay on the beach resort. The should be cheaper but they charge more because there is no real competition.

      3 nights with my wife and 2 kids ( 1 is autistic) in a 2 double delux room Pro: clean room and spacious, bathroom was goid and powerful shower preasure, greeting staff and very helpful, welcome drink straight as we arrived, good pool we all enjoyed it, breakfast buffet included, easy check in and out, free shuttle service to bring you down, 5min trike to the hotel from the 1bataan ferry, 10min to a banka for 5 fingers and 10min to Sisiman Lighthouse. All in all great stay. Thanks to all the staff Cons: restaurant prices a little steep and food is average, bed is double not queen size, need a trike or use the shuttle if you want anything from ministop

      The location is great. The hotel has the view of a mountain. Guest can really have a good time just by staying in the hotel. The design of the hotel let the guest feel the fresh air flowing thru the inside of the hotel, it has natural lighting from the sun. The pool is perfect. The food taste sumptuous. And all employees pays curtsy whenever they cross upon with the guest

      Very Poor”

      1. On arrival we were told that we would have to wait for one hour to check that the room was made up and satisfactory for us, They obviously never checked the room and make us wait a hour for nothing. 2. when we entered the room it had a very strong odor of sewage. 3. The toilet was leaking that had flooded the floor, obviously thats where the smell was coming from. 4. No hot water, its was fixed within two hours. 5. we waited 2 hours & 10 minutes for our meal to be served. very embarrassing for my guests 6. we were wrongly charged for our meals, they charged us for the table next to us, this was rectified the next morning. So overall it was a very bad experience and would like to hear some feedback

      Many Hidden Fees with disappointing Toilet, services and Parking”

      It is said in Agoda max for 3 Adults for Queen Deluxe but when we arrived at Hotel, they charged me with additional Php 1,500 for the third person with an awful additional bed given for the third person . Also, they didn't replied to us if our early check-in is approved or not, so they charged us additional Php 1,300++ for early booking. If the replied to us, we will book for two days instead of 1 due to almost the same rate. Another disappointment that we found out that the room given to us has a intermittent clogged toilet bowl. Also, toilet rug/mat were not provided during our whole stay. Parking slots near the entrance for staying Guest were not reserved and customers on their restaurant can get if they come first. I would not recommend this on rainy days. The good thing here is you will dig in to their food. Included breakfast buffet at the lobby was great and food on their restaurant was good for its price not surprise why they got many customers even on a rainy weekday.
