The place, the people, the service are outstanding. From the time we had arrived, it felt like we were VIPs. They have a unique and personalized way of giving relaxation to their guests. They do arrange tours at a reasonable price on a more local, engaged way. If one is looking for tranquility, this is the placr., except for the gecko at night which drove my partner crazy. The breakfast in the room was superb.
I didn't there'd be a butler, it was a nice surpise. We were attended and taken care of by the staff. We felt very special. Free roundtrip so no hastle on the getting to the place. The food is pricey though.
What I like about this place: The reservation process is very professional The place is great and peaceful. If you want to escape from the busy city and just want to relax and a peaceful place, this is a great choice. Lots of plants and flowers. I also like the sounds of the birds. You will have your own personal butler. Freebies such as boat transfer, welcome drink (it was not delicious though), Free breakfast. The food taste good and it is like a food from a five star hotel The exterior design of our room was unique and the view from our room was fantastic Downside: The interior of the room is just simple, ctr tv, not so big bed and the room is not that spacious. The pool was big but the chlorine was so strong and the water was not cold. They dont have restaurant you will just eat in your room or anywhere you want example beach or pool side which is good but I still want to eat in the restaurant. They don't sell junk foods. The price of the food was very expensive.. Average price would be 350 pesos good for 1 person. 58 pesos for 1 cup of rice. The food is only good for 1 person and not shareable except for soup and noodles such as pancit. The prices written in the menu is exclusive of 12% VAT so if it is written 350 pesos it means you are paying more than that. They dont have reception area. If you are travelling with old people or children better choose room that is fronting the beach because other rooms are located above and you need to climb the stairs. It feels like hiking. The Jacuzzi was not working.. I climb the stairs with 217 steps just to go there but to see it was not working.
Been here for two nights and 3 days... Pick-up time is 11:00 and 2:30 at Sta Anna Wharf. Our butler was waiting for us in the dock upon arrival. The place have good ambiance. GOod food but somewhat pricey dont like their carbonara tastes bland, the tinola is definitely a must try.. they have good customer service. No wifi in the rooms, best for family relaxation time. Best butler ever " ate tang🙂"..
Went there on march the 4th 2017 with 27 of my friends just to celebrate my birthday, the place was just perfect & we all had fun the food was good, & the service was even better the thing about this place is you need to have a very good budget like really big one & you need to prepare for cash payments because there are no ATM machines & if you're going to use your credit card then you better prepare an ID for that
If you want to have a nice and quiet relaxing holiday Hof Gorei is the place to be. The staff are accomodating and you have your own butler. Ms April the owner is welcoming. I will definitely back if I have a chance to go back to Samal.
We stayed here just because pearl farm was already fully booked during the Chinese New Year. While we looked forward to a personal butler, sadly, the amenities, room accommodation, beach front and activities are not worth the price we paid for. 1- room had very dim lights. Not good if you want read a book for instance. The toilet has a broken shower and when turned on just splatters around the toilet seat and tissue roll. 2- pool is small. Either 4ft or 6ft only. Not for kids. 3-DO NOT TAKE THE ISLAND HOPPING boat ride. It's a waste of money. We only went snorkeling to the coral garden and that's it. We went around the talikod island and that's it. They did not allow us to step out of the boat to go a any beach front. THEY FOOLED US! 4-Food is overpriced. It's as if you dined in a restaurant in the central business district of Makati. 5-Lots of mosquitos and they do not do anything about it. So I suggest bring a repellant. 6-Yes there is a butler but only for the butler's work hours,i.e. No longer available after dinner so you are on your own. 7-No decent beachfront. The low tide hours just dry up the front. I felt this place was the worse resort I have stayed given what happened during the boat ride and the experience.
Personal Butler! I didn't know every room gets a personal butler to tend to your every need! It was awesome. We never had to search if we needed someone. They gave us our privacy but our butler stayed in distance to see if we ever needed anything. Again, fantastic service. I only stayed here once, but I would recommend you ask for Darell. If he is your butler, it will make your stay here great. And, he has great English and was able to answer any questions I had of where to go or to explain any curiosities I had about his life and local life on the island. Very friendly guy and I would request him if I come back again!
This is such an awesome resort. You really get the value of your money. Amazing rooms and all with a beautiful view. All the staff are great esp to ate tang and her brother! We will definitely stay here again ❤
Pros: friendly, personal service; tasty food Cons: Noisy, aggressive geese outside our door (and other birds always wandering around (chickens and turkeys), meals expensive and food service can be very slow. No free water or coffee in the room. Landscaping needs a trim. The small swimming pool has some design flaws and hazards for the unwary. Not recommended for children due to the steep steps (sometimes with very sharp rocks) and the swimming pool with no shallow area.
