- Good room facilities with attention to detail. For example, mattress is noticeably better than other hotels, pillows are good quality and nicely arranged, etc.
- The pool is what makes the place outstanding. Nice setting, with palm trees surrounding. We like to lounge around, and it's a perfect location for just relaxing with a book.
- Maybe a bit overpriced for what it is, so it might not be worth it for your budget, but it's definitely a nice place.

The staffs were very friendly, attentive and helpful. It was a nice place to chill out with friends and family. Food and drinks were fresh as the price was extremely reasonable and the service was speedy! 15 minutes driving ride from the airport and less than 10 minutes to reach the downtown area. The coolest thing was the staff actually climbed up the tree to pick the coconut when we ordered for fresh juice!

It is my first time in Dumaguete and stayed at SMBC with my family.The food is cheap but very delicious with generous portioning. They also have a buffet on weekends and it felt romantic eating by their poolside under the stars, feeling the seabreeze, as they grill your fresh seafood of choice.
I liked the place a lot because the ambiance is very relaxing and quiet, and it is not away from the convenience of the city. It is just about 5 minutes tricycle ride away from the mall. The room is big and spacious. We stayed in June which is an off-peak season and saw a few maintenance works on-going. It didn't bother us though because they worked very discreetly. But I am sure that they are doing some improvements on their facilities which made me look forward more on our next visit. Aside from the "chill" feel of the place, what makes it special are the staff. They are so friendly and very accommodating. From the driver who picked us up at the seaport, to the front desk who was very informative especially about the tours and activities (btw, they also offer free selected/scheduled tours), the waiters and waitresses at the restaurant during meals, and most of all, the housekeeping staff who cleans very well our room everyday. I love their surprises and the daily notes/thoughts for the day by the housekeeper. We also stayed on a Father's Day and they set-up something special for my husband. And oh! I also love that they have special treats/coolers every night. :)
Thank you, Ms. Judith and the whole team! Looking forward to our next family getaway at Sta.Monica Beach Club! :)
