My family just had lunch there but didn't check in. The place was nice because the restaurant is actually built on top of the edge of the Pacific Ocean. It's windy and the air is definitely fresh. We had so many food but what I liked the most was their Eggplant Steak. It's majority made of grilled eggplant with a...

Our stay in this hotel was okay. There is not a better accommodation in Tandag. But they should fix the problem with the bad smell in the room. It comes from the canalisation. And maybe the managment of the restaurant will check one day (understand) that the tourists they comes from western countries, they like to drink a fresh brewed...

Luxury is the furthest thing in mind when staying in this place. It is just a place to sleep and not a good one at that. There are no safety deposit boxes, privacy is not guaranteed because the curtains are short and are only one layer each. The beds are hard and the pillows are too thin for comfort. The...

Shacene is located near the boulevard, national highway, beach and stores. I find the place decent. Lot of people stay there. I could say, the staff are friendly specially the ones who have been working for them for years. The food is delicious. The value meal ribs and crispy pata among my favorites. Dining outside in the night is good,...

After arriving late in the night, they help us to bring the luggage up to the room. The room was small but clean and roomkeeping was nice all the days during our stay in this hotel. The bathrom, also small, but also clean. The bed was comfortable, but to short for me. We had two beds and we put them...

My friends and I stayed for one night in this hotel which we paid for P1,200 for one night. We were given a room good for 4, with 2 queen sized bed, an old cable tv, an old smelly cabinet, a poor functioning airconditioning unit and just average private bathroom with a heater that's not working. The design of the...

Visited Tandag for a baptismal and got recommended to this place. I'd have to say, the staff are very accommodating and friendly. The location of the pension house is near the boulevard so it's a plus. The only problem are the rooms. Bedding can sometimes be half cleaned, mattresses are stiff and we had problems with lizards as well. The...

There's one food/room attendant named Maria who is very helpful, honest and accommodating. All our requests are promptly attended with a smile. She speaks good English too...This I find the positive traits that keep us coming to this establishment, aside from its location near the boulevard where you can brisk walk in the morning and dine in the evening al...
