"Stay at King Solomon Resort Mabini vis Matangas Ph"
Good points are the view, the attached wharf pontoon and the meals..
Reasonable price but the resort makes money out of diving..
Friendly staff and videoke free as is wi fi
Casual relaxed atmosphere - once staff are on duty they do a great job - very casual as well
Rooms are not refurbished everyday and have to ask for new towels each day
Long way from beaches and cafes and markets of Mabini, 80 pesos in tricycle, rocks and no beach.
Enjoyed the stay though for 2 nights and didnt dive
I arrived late at the hotel bcos my driver lost his way. It was pretty scary during the night time as there are no street lights. Once reaching the resort, the staff was helpful and check me in with no hustle. I stayed in the 2-storey hut, with the room at the top floor and the toilet at the lower ground. It was pretty scary to go down to the toilet in the middle of night where the place is so near to the jungle. Bad imagination did cross the head. It was quite an experience. Everything is so great. Those who are afraid night, better stay away....haha..The breakfast is so healthy.
i just got confused about one of the staff in there, because when i got there at the hotel last june 3, he cant find my reservation, he was asking me when did i booked it then i told him to maybe 2 weeks ago, after that he explain it to me that once i have booked it i should be there on the time i have booked it or it will be cancelled, i was thinking that day about that guy maybe he doesnt know what a BOOKING/RESERVATION is?!?
The green of the Golf Course/Country Club was almost startling. A great retreat, even if you are not playing golf .. there is little else to do but eat and relax. We had friends to pick us up, and after seeing Lipa city, we were glad to visit rather than stay in town .. We went to the crater lake for lunch for a wonderful view and good food.
The whole ambience was cool, energizing, and inviting. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. What could be more helpful though is giving enough info to those going swimming in other pools aside frok the one near the resto, that towels should be claimed at the front desk. Perhaps this happened during our stay because of the two wedding accommodations that happened on that day where all staff were pretty much preoccupied. Jevertheless, little things can mean a lot in terms of making one's stay more convenient.
We chose the Microtel after checking out 2 other hotels closer to San Pablo. This hotel was much nicer than the others and definitely worth the extra dollars and time spent traveling to and from San Pablo by bus each day. The hotel has a new or almost new appearance inside and out and the rooms are very nice for what Wyndam advertises as no frills - you definitely don't feel like your in a no frills room because everything looks new, nicely color coordinated, and very clean. The breakfast buffet is nice as well, although not as large a selection as the 5 star hotels in Manila. Overall I was highly satisfied and would want to stay there again when in the area.
