Well this resort hotel has a nice ambiance and good food (i.e. if you're willing to wait) but I think that's all that's good about it. The rooms are not what you're paying for and the service is bad. I guess it reflects how poorly the place is managed. For daytime activities like parties and gatherings, this place would be...

Rooms are dim. Can't drink the water and there's none supplied. Wine is the worst ever. Aircon is ineffective and noisy. No room safe. I have stayed at ormoc villa many times and will always go back there. This stay was a terrible disappointment...

Deluxe room is big but lacks a ref..wifi only works by the lobby. With the price you pay you should be getting more. Pool is dirty, my son got itchy skin after swimming. Location is good,ambiance is also great. The resort just lack some kind of "Ohmmp" . It's okay for a night stay but not more.

Not very busy and service poor with long waits. Didn't have what we ordered and didn't bother to tell us until they bought the rest of food out. Deceased owner of resort would've been very sad. Has great potential with proper management in restaurant area. Did not stay at resort, but other reviews not good.

Welcome to the mold resort. Terrible service, filthy rooms, bugs everywhere. I posted pictures of the bugs and mold a month ago and they never showed up in the comment section......what happened to them?

The rooms were a disgrace, the originally booked room had a roof covered in mildew. I was subsequently downgraded to one of the pool side rooms, the blankets and sheets were beyond worn. There was no safe available in the room. The food served at the restaurant was good as was the price, however as is typical in restaurants in...

If there's zero I will give them that. First the restaurant service sucks you have to wait 45 minutes to order a food, the hotel management doesn't let you bring any foods and drinks in the room they want you to buy everything in their restaurant fair enough if the restaurant service is good but it's not, second the room...

Sabin nests a few feet from the Ormoc Bay, in fact, at night, you can see the city lights. In the morning, you can catch a glimpse of fishing boats passing by. And that is all there is to see. It is a poorly designed hotel that makes its pool its centerpiece. Still, the rooms are passable, the service is...

This is my second time staying here - last time was 4 years ago. My previous stay I would give it a 5 (Excellent), however this time I give it a 3 (Average). There was a group of us staying in 3 rooms in March 2015. The guest rooms are showing a lot of wear and tear and the management...

Sabin has become a landmark in the Ormoc tourist scene, a place where people go when they are in that city. The building is not that impressive from the front, but the view is amazing once you've entered and the wide expanse of pool and sea greet you. We did not check in because we were just in town for...
