Booked through booking.com a few days before my arrival. Room was 7650 Pesos as stated on the booking.com email. Usually you book, get to the resort, and then pay the resort in cash, or so I have been doing for the past 5 years. I arrived at the resort, to be informed that they added 22.5% resort tax to the quoted booking.com price, and already deducted it from my credit card. I was NOT too happy. Also, non of my requests written on my booking.com booking form was adhered to. I had to ask for everything again. The standard room I originally booked has no balcony and the back faces local Philippino houses. The upgrade (1200 pesos) has a balcony and faces the garden. Same size room, and nothing extra. The room looked old. Bathroom tiles were moldy. The bathroom door's paint was peeling and the room needed an upgrade. Went swimming at the 60cm deep Kiddies pool. My son did not like it, as it is too shallow, s owe went to the adult pool. Being a big person, who is body conscious, I usually swim with my shirt on. I have done this at numerous resorts and in 3 different countries, and no problem. When we got to the adult pool, the enforcer/lifeguard told me I needed to take it off. I refused, so my 8 year old had to swim by himself. Then I looked in the pool, and saw Korean people swimming with shirts on, and not a thing was said to them. While sitting next to the pool, watching my son swim, I saw an elderly European man taking a tube to float in the pool. The enforcer/lifeguard came and took the tube away. Not a minute later a Korea lady came, took the same tube, and she was allowed to swim with it. I was NOT too happy. Dinner - buffet dinner 800 pesos per person. Restaurant food ordered from the menu is expensive. Good, but expensive. The KIDS CLUB room had a pool/snooker table in it. No pool cues, but a cigarette stand and ashtrays on it. It also had a dartboard in the room.
HmM. Let me think.
