Okay, so before writing this down, I had to check about this hotel again. I visited Tagbilaran City, Bohol in November 2011 for a video shoot. It was a whirlwind schedule and I kind of forgotten the name of the hotel we stayed in. But would NEVER forget the laughs we had here!
We checked in to Sun Avenue Tourist Inn and Café after dinner time and we needed to be up early in the morning. The male receptionist brought us to our rooms. He also brought in our requested additional pillows, blankets, coffee, towels, and so much stuff. We would have requested for a better room if it was possible.
I stayed on their lobby with my laptop where there is free Wi-Fi; there’s no signal in the rooms. I waived good night to the same male receptionist on my way to my room a few hours later. And fell soundly asleep.
Hours before the break of dawn, we are up already. And lo and behold, so was the male receptionist! He stood there like a security guard. We asked if we could have, at the very least, cups of coffee to start another long day, and guess what, there was no one else there to do that but him! We were laughing behind his back because we were starting to think he was the only personnel in the hotel. We didn’t bother asking for help from the “hotel staff” in carrying down our heavy bags because we know it would still be him. It was one hilarious early morning! If he’d said he’s also the manager or owner of the hotel, we would believe him because he’s the only living soul servicing us there.
One of my companions smoking outside the hotel called me out. There was a Job Vacany posting by the hotel door for various positions. And we felt for the guy. And then we laughed.
I have forgotten the name of this hotel and I needed to “google” it. I found some awesome photos of this hotel. And wondering where the heck were those when I was in there. My photos are all blah (but real)! But hey, we had a blast there!
This hotel is FAR from the paradise beaches that Bohol is famous for. Get hotels from Panglao Island. But this hotel is near downtown area where business and commercial establishments thrive.
