“Only a Pool review”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

I used to live near this place & loved to go their pool. The water was always crystal clear & the pool is big & deep. It has a swim up bar, several shaded tables, cold beer & good food.

Stayed here one night while ferrying an aircraft across Asia. Staff are pleasant and rooms are very nice. This is a smaller property - about 15 rooms - located in a secure, quiet, partially forested area away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. It's very much a quiet country lodge. The pool is huge and very well maintained. The central garden is very pleasant.

This hotel offers excellent value for money spent.

The wait staff (bar and restaurant) are not exactly 'the first dogs off the porch', so, don't sit around waiting for them to come to you - just give them a holler when you want service, and they'll come running.

I'll happily return here again.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the more expensive rooms. The price difference is negligible, and the rooms are grea...

The Royal Oberoi Resort is a quite and nice place to stay if you want to see Honda Bay and the Underground River. Check out their website as they offer package deals, which included meal, airport transportation and 2-3 day tours.

Staff was very friendly and helpful in every situation and not limited to a special department.

We booked the Suite Villa for 4D3N, which was clean and comfortable equipped (Cable TV
Mini bar, FREE WiFi, Air conditioning, Ceiling fan, Tea and coffee making facilities)

The Hotel offers FREE WiFi all over their place not only limited to the lobby area.

Room Tip: The Suite Villa is located at the entrance of the resort and it has two storeys. At the upper floor...

We stayed in a superior room and it was beautiful and so relaxing. Nice attention to detail, make it a very wonderful place to stay.

This was by far the nicest hotel we stayed in during this trip in The Philippines. It felt like it was kept to the higher international standards rather than local Filipino ones, without the high price tag you usual pay for those comforts! For those that have traveled the Philippines you'll know what I mean.

The food at the restaurant was delicious, we didn't want to eat out, which is also rare for a hotel experience!
