I recently stayed here and could not bring myself to spend one more night there...I only went to the resort to use the bed. There was a poor Labrador tied on a short leash in a concreted area all day and night, with little shade or water. The dog had no where to sleep except concrete. They also have a... More

Food was good and good price. The rooms were over priced and terrible. It looked as someone haphazardly decided to put the rooms on the property with open area looking like doing construction and junk made it eyesore. It cost 1700 php for a deluxe room and extra bed except no room for the extra bed the full size bed... More

Set in a run down, meandering complex with some building extensions evidently 5 years in the making and now dormant, this shabby but seemingly functional hotel has extensive facilities like outside dining ala Pinoi style, a grungy pool table and a dirty swimming pool. Being close to the main road is a major draw-back and nothing detracts from passing traffic... More

It is in a quiet place, right on the main highway. Tom, and the staff are the nicest and friendliest people you will ever meet. The rooms are nice, and very affordable. Close enough to many of the things I want to see when I am in the South of Cebu Island. The restaurant has some really good food, with... More

I have not actually stayed overnight at the resort; however, I have eaten at the restaurant too many times to count. The restaurant has both Filipino and American foods on the menu. The pancakes and bacon for breakfast are very good. Woodruff's cheeseburger is excellent. The ribeye steak is excellent for the Philippines.

I've already had many trips in Woodruffs and their accommodations were always enough to accommodate all my friends. Their owner was very friendly and the staff was very professional in their service. Their food was one of the best I've tasted while living here both in filipino and american foods. The resort is in the rural part of cebu and... More

What a horrible, horrible place. The owner thinks his job is to lounge around the restaurant and sit at incoming guests' tables and blow his foul smoke at them and talk about himself. I stayed in 11 hotels in the Philippines on my trip and this was clearly the worst. Small, disgusting room. The shower head was so dirty it... More

We pulled in after a long drive needing a place for the night. Rooms small and very basic . Ask for room near ocean to get away from the highway and the big killer yellow buses that honk and barrel their way throughout Cebu. The place is for sale but I think much work needs doing to reverse the effects... More
