We booked their suite room in this hotel last April 2018. I like the suite room because it was so spacious (2 bedrooms with a kitchen and lounge area). What made our stay here dissappointing is that they don’t have reserved parking for checked in guests. They made us park our car on the side of the road because their parking space is filled with cars/vehicles of people dining in their restaurant. While I understand that they have a first come first serve policy in their parking area, I think they need to check if their guests have cars with them and give them priority parking space. Restaurant guests will park their cars for about an hour or two tops while checked in guests will literally park their cars overnight. Their rude guard’s resolution was that they will just call us once there are free parking space. They didnt even think that their most expensive room is situated on the third floor with no elevator! Basically, they expect us to wait and go all the way down once there’s a free space in the parking are IF WE WANT to park our car properly. Also, keep in mind they will charge you for breakfast by default if you don’t tell me specifically you’re supposed to be getting it for free. So check your receipts carefully before u check out.

We enjoyed all the dishes we ordered! Their sizzling bulalo is a musty try which is a specialty in this restaurant. Also try their sizzling french fries and their tinolang isda. Do not ever miss to go to this restaurant when you are in Dumaguete

We went here for one reason and for one reason alone: the giant sizzling bulalo....and it didn't disappoint. It is a calorie binge w/c is definitely an artery blocking dish. The dish is Best shared w/ 3-4 people because of its size and richness

The staff are really accommodating. Family room is clean, the sheets are fresh and bathroom is fragrant. My kid really like it there. I recommend this place to those who opt for a relaxing travel that is far from the noise of the city.

We stayed here for 3 nights and that was enough. The first night we could not connect to wifi but that was fixed the next morning. There was no elevator to the 2nd and third floors. The room was clean the hot showers were good. The staff was pleasant. They were renovating half the hotel it seemed, The temporary restaurant was not appealing to us so we did not dine there. For the price it was a good place to stay.

Heeding the advise of a friend, our group of 7 dropped by the restaurant of Royal Suite Inn for lunch before proceeding to Dauin. In particular, we had their must-try Sizzling Bulalo in our gastronomic sights that Saturday. And it didn't disappoint us at all. A savoury gravy (great on rice) was slathered generously over the tender beef, tendons and ligaments that encased the bone that was easily 12 inches long. At close to 600 pesos, our order was complemented by some Spicy Gambas and Crispy Shrimp. Being very calorific and cholesterol-laden, I wouldn't advise anyone to indulge in this on a regular basis. Trying it out at least once should be good enough to scratch it off the bucket list.

Come here for one thing only: the Sizzling Bulalo! Please reserve in advance before going since at times it's always sold out or the place gets packed with hugnry tourists/locals especially during weekends. You can take a trike going to and from the place.

Very close to the airport. It isn't in a very spectacular part of town. This hotel is cheap, and as usual you get what you pay for. There are building works going on, and the noise lasted until about10pm and started again at 8am. It has quite large but basic rooms. For the money it is good value, but it is quite dated. If you are arriving late, or leaving early from the airport then this place is perfect. It isn't in the centre of town though so for a general stay in Dumaguete, you would probably be wise to pick something more central

Stayed 100 nights. The hotel is only OK, the rooms are in need of updating, too much Dark brown paint and basic local crafted furniture. The restaurant was being rebuilt so dining was in the top floor function room,like eating in an aircraft hanger, and remote from the kitchens so food was always cold. Uninspiring menu unless you like Filipino food. Comfortable beds, good aircon, safe deposit boxes. Hot good shower. The rooms are small, shower rooms minute. The construction noise was very intrusive from 6am till 11pm except Sundays. The deluxe rooms have a balcony, but otherwise the same as standard, OK if you smoke but otherwise not worth the extra.

Must try in Dumaguete ! It's monstrous and really good . Went here as my boyfriend really wanted some bulalo and saw the reviews . Didn't disappoint . Came in on a Saturday at 1:30pm and there were vacant tables . (It's a small place with maybe 25-30 capacity ) . Bulalo came within 15 minutes .
