        There is big room & bathroom also big swimming pool like sports complex. I like very nice restorant for breakfast and garden in there. Especially very kind staff including korean and Philipino. They can be pick up and drop down to airport for free. There is perfect!!! 완전 최고! 방 크고 정원 이쁘고 수영장 엄청 커요!! 특히 수영 아무때나 가능. 조식은 오믈렛 강추! 공항 왕복 무료. 원데이 여행 소개도 다 해줘구요. 또.. 중간에 하루 예약 비우고 지방 갔었는데 방 그냥 놔 둬 주셨어요~ 여튼 완벽한 호텔이에요.

        We were allowed tocheck in early as sson as the room was available. Place is clean and beautiful. Wayer flow was string abd they had heater. Aur conditiioning is excellent though for a while we struggled on how to set the thermostat. The staff were very helpful and would cater to our needs as soon as we ask them. We ordered breakfasts for the 2 days we had to go early for our underground river tour and honda bay. Theyserved itearly acc to our schedule tour puck up time. They also arranged our early 5:30am airport transpirt. Normally the airport transfer costs 300php but bec of early pick up time of 5:30 amfor our group of 8. .wifi is ok in the family room we were assigned in the first floor but wifi was weak in the second floor room. I will drginitely come back to stay in balay tuko. Thank you being part of our beautiful memories

        What a relief, after a month's traveling experience in this beautiful country, to end up in such a peaceful, spotless-clean and nicely-staffed place! Staff in Balai Tuka are extremely obliging, rooms are spacious, and even if the hotel is located rather far from central Puerto it is worth every peso spent to be accomodated here. A beautiful garden, singing birds and a comfortable sitting area on the terrace add to the pleasure. To top it up, WiFi is excellent, accessible in the public areas upstairs or downstairs.

        Nice value resort”

        This western style resort is set on a large piece of land and surrounded by gardens which creates a nice natural atmosphere. It is well designed, the rooms are spacious, there’s a great undercover swimming pool and everything works as it should and is well maintained, The one area this resort can improve in is with its food. We found it to be not up to our expectations - this said if you are like us, there are plenty of great food options a short walk or tricycle ride away. The other thing that we found a little bit off putting was that the resort (like many hotels also) is putting signs up saying they are concerned for the environment. This may be so but I would encourage the management to work to take more steps in this direction eg. Establish a fruit and vegetable garden and fishpond with composting waste from the hotel so as to be able to serve farm to table. Go solar on the enormous roof that they have. Stop using sachets of shampoo and soap and put in dispensers in each room.

        Thank you for your nice review. By the way, the lettuce and tomatoes served in our restaurant are organic and coming from our greenhouse. We have composting area in the end of our garden where all the food waste and leaves are collected. For solar, we have 4 KW of solar panels on the roof of the swimming pool facing south so not visible from the driveway. We have a grid type inverter of 5 KW injecting day time 220 VAC in the grid. On top of that, we have a 12 VDC pump running all day (if sunny) for the pool's filtration. The lights of all the terraces & lobby are running on solar all the night. To go solar 100% with Aircon rooms it requires a huge investment in lithium batteries & not really feasable. We won several awards from Zero Carbon Resort (European NGO), Anahaw (Asean organisation) & PCSD (philippine government agency) and they come here with their own checklists to monitor us & see if we fulfill their requirements. Look forward to seeing you again.

        No WiFi in the rooms. WiFi outside the rooms sucks. No excuse. Buy routers. Average time at the restaurant is 60 minutes. Ridiculous. No bar. They run out of even the Coke or beer they have and takes days to replace even that. Lazy management. For just a few dollars more you can find a real hotel that is run professionally.

        This place is all about the pool & not much else.”

        Unfortunately it seemed as if the pool was rented out for a birthday or some kind of celebration, so we never got a nice chance to experience it. The staff was very unpleasant, not a single smile from check in to check out. So maybe I’m being harsh because first impressions mean a lot to me. The restaurant is practically closed. During proper hours I went to go get some food & was told that every option I wanted was unavailable. They could only make me a sandwich...if you’d had sandwiches in the Philippines, they’re not good. So I passed & we went outside to find food. Honestly just a little better guest service & I might have liked the place much more. Spacey rooms, poor WiFi, & outside needs better upkeep.

        Thank you for sharing your recent experience with us. Indeed our pool of 18 mx 7 m is open to the public from 09:00 am until 05:00 pm because we can not maintain the quality of the water of a large swimming pool with lifeguard monitoring for only 2 swimmers who have a discounted room in our humble B & B. For the evening meal, you arrived at 08:45 pm, ie 15 minutes before the closing of the kitchen: for the evening meals, it is displayed in the lobby and in the restaurant bar the schedules and that you must reserve your meal in advance.
