Sad situation, a nice hotel going broke. The location is terrible, on a dirt road in a residential area no food or store near by. Someone thought “ build it and they will come”, it was built 95% done and decorated very nice, very good bed ,good towels etc., but none one came ( we were the only customers). If you bring all your own food and drinks and want a nice quiet place, this is it.
The road was a bit hard to find as no street lights at night, upon arrival we had to wait as staff verified that we had booked? The room was spacious and clean with a great bed with quality bedding and top class pillows which is a rare thing these days. Tv, aircon and fan all worked well . Was disappointed that there was no breakfast included as I had read glowing reports of how good the breakfast was. Obviously this has been discontinued now. The bathroom was excellent with modern tiles and fittings but the toilet and accessories had very low water pressure and was not up to par for us. Overall a great place to stay and would be happy to rebook in the future. Robert from Australia.
comfortable accommodation and personal service by the owner make this a great place to stay in Mati
Hotel very far from Mati centre”
The hotel is very far from Mati centre. To get to the restaurants in Mati centre or Mati boardwalk, you each time need to take a tricycle. There are no tricycles passing by the hotel, you first must take a fairly long walk on a muddy path before arriving at a tarred road where tricycles pass.
When we arrived at the hotel and showed our Agoda booking, the hotel said they did not receive the booking. But they gave us rooms as the hotel was totally empty, we were the only people staying there, I am sure due to its remote location. We had not been aware of that when booking with Agoda.
vThank you for your review which we deem as helpful.
It is unfortunate that you are not very happy with our accommodation. While we admit that we are not within the city center, we are only 5 minutes away if you have your own car, so technically that is not VERY FAR. As for the scarcity of public transport, we would have gladly accommodated your request to get you a motorcycle or tricycle onsite each time you needed on. We have just completed massive renovations in the hotel - we did a soft re-opening in February and we regret that this has caused you to think that no one checks into our property because of the distance.
Despite this, we hope that we will have another chance to be part of what we could only hope is a wonderful Mati experience.
Can't complain... Can't praise them either.”
Was hoping for decent rooms/bed/pillows... but was disappointed. Promising little place, I think a renovation is (over)due.
Thank you very much for your review. Entire hotel has undergone renovations, including bathroom tilings changed. Hope to be of service again sometime.
Hard To Find But Worth It”
(1) The room was a delight (2) The Free breakfast was great (3) The manager was terrific
I was very pleased with my stay. They do not clean the suite daily, but do happily clean the suite and change towels and sheets on request. There was a water problem and the hot water never really worked. However, the manager was so concerned about the problem and so very pleasant that I came to see the problem as a blessing that allowed me to get to know the manager!
Thank you for your review.
Pleased to inform you that the water and hot water problems have been sorted after the major renovations our humble property went thru.
Thank you for staying with us.
Pretty basic, location is a challenge”
Accommodation was as expected, pretty basic, and the staff is helpful.
However, location is quite challenging. Not along the highway, some locals don't even know the place. Keep that GPS working.
Also, weak water pressure, so expect some
Overall, Hotel was satisfactory and value for money.

Short term stay”
Staff Performance, Ease of communications, Owner participation
My stay was only for 5 nights and I really enjoyed my time there. I did quite a fair amount of traveling while there and they had no problems in accommodating my 'out of hours' requirements. The staff were most friendly and the owner was around at times and we became very good friends. I would certainly recommend to anyone who is not in need of a hotel not on the main thoroughfare.
A great introduction to mati and Dahican”
personal assistance, breakfast at the Lagoon, availability of transport
excellent breakfast, big clean rooms, very nice owners
Breakfast is the best included one I had in this country, apart from big international chains. Really nothing negative. Location is a little way off the main roads, but therefore it's quiet. Mattresses are on the hard side. I like it this way, others might prefer a softer one.
A welcome experience. Comfortable. Clean.”
Beds and pillows, sheets, and comforter
For a new boutique hotel in the city, I was quite satisfied. Cleanliness is my major standard. We were really planning to stay in a resort but no rooms were available so we searched Agoda for a city hotel and found Senorita Suites. It is tucked in a private subdivision and we almost missed the turn. We only spent the nights in the hotel because the beach and catching the sunrise when it first hits the Philippines was our main objective in Mati.I must say our sleep was so comfortable because of the immaculate sheets and comforter and excellent bed and pillows. And we were also entertained by the hotel owners themselves who were so hospitable and warm. Breakfasts are free! On Sunday, there was a huge delicious buffet open to the public. The staff were attentive and helpful.
The owner is so accommodating , hospitable, treat you as a family not just a guest.
Very pleasant, the owner is very hospitable and treat as very well like any other family. Friendly staff and accomodating to the best of there ability.
Clean and environmentally friendly hotel as well, knows how important to conserve electricity as they are using solar powered panel. Good location as we don't like the noise of the city so much.
