Misibis Bay, Albay-Think twice!!!!
« on: November 13, 2012, 04:40:40 pm »

Hi mga sis!

Share ko lang ang opinion ko based on experience regarding this "small luxury hotel"...

To start it off,our toilet stinks. It has this funky smell that doesnt disappear. This was distinct even when we just checked in. Add to that,the pool was swarmed with frogs throughout the night,making it unhygienic and unswimmable. The double lock on the door is broken and so is the safe. Our room does not live up to the standard that this is supposedly a "luxury resort hotel". Our request to be transferred was denied due to Garden View rooms are full. We are just so disappointed and sad...this was an Anniversary/Birthday celebration for our family and we did not expect this.

Most Restaurant staff are inattentive. We have suffered yesterday's lunch and this morning's buffet. Food took so long yesterday! We already arrived late and were very hungry. This morning,we had to ALWAYS ask for water and coffee while others didnt have to! Waiter even informed us that since we are 2 adults and 2 kids having breakfast today,we have to pay for tomorrow's breakfast! I Dont think that's fair.  I Know my 5yr old is free and my 11yr old is half price so why would they tell me that??

Smoking being allowed near the bar on the pool-such a sad,sad and bothersome situation. We have kids and non-smokers. We dont expect to bear second-hand smoke while on vacation! We love the infinity pool but rowdy and smoking guests have ruined it for us. I Know that I really dont have to lecture regarding the health hazards of smoking especially SECOND-HAND SMOKE.

Sadly, I Have to add that our request for fresh towels came after an hour and 4 follow-up calls! Hot water was a dismal amenity! It was either so hot or too cold...we have never encountered these kinds of concern with resorts of supposedly lower calibre and cost.

So disappointing that with all the expenses we could have gone to Puerto Princesa, Coron or Boracay instead! I never imagined that this could happen but it did. So just to be safe:  LOWER YOUR EXPECTATIONS AND PREPARE TO SPEND A LOT.

3 days 2 nights kami dun and nung 1st day pa lang e nagrequest na kami for another room kaso nga fully booked daw. so no choice talaga. The following day I emailed na their Manila Office and nagrerespond naman agad. Tumawag ang Assoc Front Desk Manager kaso we were snorkeling pa nun, hindi naman tumawag ulit. The Last day, morning pa lang I had to set up an appointment pa just to talk to the so-called Manager. Wghen she called eh sinabi na lang din ng husband ko na useless naman na din magreklamo dahil the almost the whole time naman e alam na niya mga concerns namin. Kung may gagawin sya e di sana nagawa na. Paalis na kami ng resort ano pa magagawa diba? Upon check-out ayn apologetic naman at nagbigay ng 20% discount sa food na naconsume namin. 1000php worth. Hay, ewan ko mga sis pero hinayang na hinayang ako sa stay namin dito!
Add mo pa yung fact na nagtravel pa kami by bus ng almost 12 hours just to get to the place! Transpo by bus pa was an additional 6400php pa nga! With all that we've spent just to spend 3 days at Misibis Bay, we could have gone somewhere better, cheaper and well-worth it!

Sorry sa ranting pero hindi ko talaga kaya i-charge lang to experience and not share this with anyone. We all have our own opinions...sana lang di nyo maexperience ang nangyari samin dito. Pero kayo, if you have the money to burn why not diba? Very disappointing lang na pinagipunan at pinaghandaan ng family namin ang dream vacation na ito. Who would'nt dream about going there, just take a look at the website diba?

Thanks for letting me share and good luck sa future guests na lang...

Hi sis! Sorry for what you have experienced, tama ka hindi enough na charge it to experience na lang lalo na't hard-earned money yun.
Sayang, looking forward pa naman kami ni hubby magpunta jan kasi na.entice talaga ko sa experience ng boss ko with his family, and naging pit stop pa siya ng amazing race, pero yung price, kaloka! Plan pa naman namin na mag.save talaga for it. Thanks sis for sharing this, pero sorry for what you have to experience :( suggest ko lang sis bka may review page dun sa website ng misibis, mas maraming makakabasa ng concern mo lalo na those who plan to go there :) you have the right to be heard! :) God bless sis!

@IanAndDina

thanks for the kind words sis! To emphasize on your point,
i relay this story not to ruin the resort but to be able to advise
beforehand mga future guests nila. Especially sa mga moms and wives
dahil tayo talaga usually nagpplan at nagbbudget ng mga vacations
diba? Nagpost na din ako review on other forums and other platforms
na malawak ang exposure. Sa TripAdvisor hindi lang ako ang may mga
negative reviews! Tsk tsk...just hope this helps kahit in setting
expectations lang.
Sis,may I suggest Peacock Garden in Bohol? What you see on the website
is what you'll get and even more! Yun talaga sulit n sulit every centavo.:)

I know naman sis na you have nothing against them, pero di ba nagbayad ka naman, and hndi biro yung halaga kaya dapat lang na mag.demand ka talaga ng best service :)
Thanks for your suggestion sis, in favor sken yan kasi I was born in Bohol but haven't been there since nagkaisip na ko :)

hi sis! mine was the opposite naman. it surprises us evrytime we hear such stories about misibis bay :( spent our honeymoon vacation there for 5 days and the experience was really memorable.

we got room upgrade, complimentary afternoon cocktails at the bar, had our choice of food (steak included), and bonded with the f&b manager rex. even the resort manager ian is super bait!

siguro the most i can complain is the beach kasi it's not as good as bohol but service and amenities are good.

im sorry you had to experience that..
