Wonderful Resort, Beautiful Locale, AmazingService”

Natural surroundings, Excellent hostess, Perfect butler

My partner and I stayed at Hof Gorei (www.hofgorei-resortdavao.com), Samal Island for 4 nites/5 days. For the first night, we stayed at one of the Round Huts, which are small, private, and charming. For the next 3 nites, we stayed at the amazing Pinzgau Chalet, which is located on the top of the resort and has large rooms and best views of the Davao Gulf and Mt Apo National Park. All rooms have a great low price, too. As a biologist and teacher, I love interacting and learning about nature. At the resort, they have beautiful gardens, cool tropical animals, and a lovely beach. I went scuba diving in the gulf seeing many corals and fish and thoroughly enjoyed it despite the highest cost I paid for diving in the Philippines. We took the Samal Island tour, which included touring the largest colony of fruit bats (about 2.3 million), swimming in Hagimit Falls and Nature Park, and taking the exciting ride down the waterslide at Maxima Aquafun. All activities are reasonably priced, but have a 10% service charge. We ate the resort's delicious meals at the Gorei Terrace, Stone hut (private), and the Pinzgao chalet (private). There's also dining in your room, on the beach and by the pool. We also had drinks at the Sepp bar in the lush garden. All meals were made to order, very good, expensive and had a 10% service charge. Throughout our entire stay, we had a butler, Moman, who took good care of us, got our meals, took our photos, arranged our activities and transportation. It was our first experience with butler service and Moman was perfect. He took care of all our requests with enthusiasm and charm and even anticipated our needs. The owner/host is April, who amused us with her stories, amazed us with her resort, and made sure our stay was wonderful and rated 5 stars! I've been to Davao, Mt Apo, and Samal Island, but at Hof Gorei, I experienced the charm and grace of its people, natural beauty, breath-taking views, and both lively fun and blissful peace.

The best is yet to come :))”

Their staffs- they were very accommodating. The very best thing I could remember is their honesty. Second, the location itself, it's so romantic, a good place when you're in search of your soul.

I dont have any regrets in choosing Hof Gorei as our home during our stay in Samal. They are one of the best resorts in the island. I couldn't imagine that it would bring the best adventure we could have during our stay. I was amazed when we found out that through habal-habal is the only way to go out of the resort, because you need to conquer the rough roads and rocks before getting into the highway. That adds flavor to the recipe (I mean our stay!). The mode of transpo from Port to Resort is really special. (For you to find out). We enjoyed the beachfront! Early in the morning jam in the pool and in the beach. So awesome to know that they preserve the beauty of the trees, animals and the beach. The resort is so peaceful. Good for a family and lovers. (I dont think a group could enjoy since there were no nightlife near the place, but it will be good to try something new and make your stay peaceful and cool). Eventhough I wasnt able to enjoy Samal with my loved one, i had my friends naman. Its really a good one to stay with when you're inlove with your someone. Its like bringing yourselves unto your own world. Only the chirping birds and the wind breeze could say how sweet you are :) The time discipline when they pick you up at the port going to resort and viseversa is really strict. It manifests how good and well mannered the Davaenos are. Thanks to our butler Glenn, who didnt complained for even once for all the requests we had. You're awesome! I still have our selfies, though! Thanks to the management for your warma welcome, we enjoyed the fresh-fruit welcoming drinks!! More power to Hof Gorei!! Cheers!!

Delightful and Peaceful Place”

Service with personal touch, clean and refreshing place to rest

Staying at Hof Gorei , Samal Island was a delightful experience for me and my family. The bungalow at beach front where we stayed was well maintained and clean ,complete with cable TV,mini ref though wifi ethernet was not available yet. I admire the service of staff dedicated to us . Very courteous, helpful and attentive to our needs. I was able also to have a short chat with the owner since she asks feedback about the service of her staff. The resort was not as big as the famous Pearl farm but the place is complete with natures around. You can request for nearby beach meal and food especially grilled seafood like tuna, squids were so perfect. Try also the buko juice freshly harvest from their own coconut trees. My tip for future guest is to check first the schedule of their free boat transfer from wharf to the island before getting an airline ticket. Since our arrival is impossible to beat the 2|30pm free boat ride I need to arrange for a private boat transfer costing additional. Inspite of these I'm so happy and went back home rested and delightful that I came here at Hof Gorei.

Romantic Getaway”

We specifically booked Hof Gorei because of its location. The first time my boyfriend and I were in Samal we stayed at a beach park which was readily accessible by tricycles and a family of 15 decided to celebrate their child’s first birthday in the beach, it was so noisy because of the videoke and the drinking. Hence, I looked for a quiet and peaceful hotel. What I loved about Hof Gorei is the feeling that you’re close to nature when you’re at the area. You could hear crickets and all kinds of birds aside from their pet ducks and parrots. It is very conducive to couple bonding. The beach and the pool are never crowded. The butler thingy is a great touch, our butler was Mark and he was so helpful even in choosing what to eat. We wanted to try the Tuna panga which was priced per 100g and he said that the serving size is usually for “barkadas” and it would be too expensive if it just for two people, our reaction was wow, Mark is very honest and their main intention is to be really helpful to guests and not just take more money. The drink with no corkage is water. All outside food is not allowed. Their food is superb, complete spices. I love their tuna kilawin with sinugba pork, we actually ordered this twice (on 2 different days). Their serving of chicken wings is not like in the metro where you ask the server how many parts and they tell you it’s 6 pieces but it is actually 3 pieces chopped, so I ordered 2 servings because I was informed that it was just 3 pieces, their 3 pieces is authentic, we weren’t able to finish off the wings. Mark said that they can keep it and it could be served for dinner. When dinner came, they even reheated the wings and lasagna for us. The beach is always being cleaned like they have specific times for cleaning everyday, even during low tide. All the staff were friendly, courteous and smiling, you’ll always be greeted by a good morning or good day or good afternoon. We enjoyed exploring the beach because when it is low tide you’ll see an

Been there with a friend, i am not expecting so much about this place but hof gorei surprised me. Located in the heart of samal island more or less 1 hour boat ride from sta. ana wharf davao city. The boat ride is free it is included when you booked a room from them.Staff is really nice ( well i thought davaoenios are very stiff and not approachable haha ) special mention to "Ate Thang" i highly recommend her when you visit the resort you can request from the resort for her as your personal Service Crew/Staff. And One thing about this place i really really really love is their AMAZING CHEF! yes! the food is really really really great! i will surely visit them again :)

The best accommodation!”

Accommodation: I think the very advantage of the resort is their accommodations! It’s awesome that the resort has private boat to pick us up in the pier. They also have welcoming butlers bringing cold juice and hydrating towels! Swaaaggg! We had personal butler, Russel, and his service had truly been best! He took care of our needs from room services, food, first aid medicine, transportation, and the best thing was, he was very thoughtful of preparing our valentine dinner at the seashore! Ambiance: The place is silent. Perfect for quiet time and quality time. We enjoy listening to the “quack -quacks” of the ducks and “tik-tilaoks” of the chickens just roaming around the resort ! By the way, they also had a monkey which I had best experience with (though she wasn’t so nice to me, thinking I’m still beautiful than her! hahahaha) CLEANLINESS: The beach is pretty clean, their surrounding, and also their rooms, but the swimming pool and jacuzzi up hill might need a little cleaning up. Food: You can’t expect their food to be too affordable like carinderia’s prices, but thankfully, they are not that pricey as 5-star hotel restaurants! We even thought we’ll pay higher bill for the food but it was lesser than we expected! And mind you, their food was really delicious! Their food servings were more than enough that we often asked them to keep the food and serve them next meal! Hof Gorei was one of the best resorts we have been so far! Dave and I are looking forward to go back and enjoy Hof Gorei one again!

We spent our valentine's day here and it was amazingly perfect. upon booking, I sent a special request for my girlfriend to make her a bouquet of flower with my personal valentine message and be given to her upon arrival at the beach. my girl was surprised and was touched when she receive the flowers personally arranged and handpicked by the assigned personal butler Rhea. she was so friendly and accommodating and all other staffs. at first night we stayed at the round hut suite located at the elevated part of the resort. it has a very good view of the beach and the pool. the room is very unique made and furnished with bamboo. for lunch we had Tinolang Manok, buttered Bariles (tuna), vegetables. the tinolang manok is superb this is a must try dish from them very home style and organic. the buttered fish is nice too. together with the perfect ambiance at the veranda of the hut and you have your perfect lunch. at dinner we asked Rhea to set us a table at the beach. we had our romantic candlelight beach dinner. the table was set up creatively with candles and rose petals. that was the highlight of our first night. the next day i climb the chalet house at the hilltop of the resort taking 217 step stair. there you can bathe on their natural springwater jacuzzi and enjoy the view from the elevated ground. You could ask them to set your meal typically anywhere at the resort you like. they also have this cottage atop of a huge stone. they call it stone hut. dinner on that location is another must try. we were even personally greeted by the owner of the resort. we went home satisfied and rejuvenated. thank you Hof Gorei and all the staffs.

You must visit this place!!!”

Very lovely grounds and beach and experience.

The name should be changed to GARDEN and Beach resort. Hof Gorei offers much more than a beautiful beach and pool!! The rooms are better in person than what they looked in the photos. This quiet resort has a lovely garden grounds that provides the venue and background for many varied dining experiences. Breakfast by the pool, dinner on the beach,etc. There is no restuarant. They assign a personal assistant to bring you drinks, and make set-ups for your dining desires. I enjoyed breakfasts on the balconey over-looking the ocean and lunch at the bar with the cool beers. The chefs, (not just cooks), presents some of the very best dining offered in the Philippines in my experience. Tuna steaks, garlic shrimps, and too much to try in one journey, so like me, you will have to return for more!!

Romantic Get-Away in a Tropical Paradise”

Service was outstanding! The sights were spectacular! The Island-Hopping tour was magical!

If you're looking for that romantic get-away, or an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, then I highly recommend this resort. A white, sand beach set by a lush,tropical hillside provided the perfect refuge from stress. Our butler, Mark, attended to our every need, in a friendly and efficient manner. The optional island-hopping tour included exploring coral reefs and a barbeque on the beach. Hof Gorei is sure to be a stop on our future visits to the Philippines.

trip to hof gorei”

great ocean views, great staff (thanks gaddiel), very freindly people, great dinning location options (beach, under neither your hut, pretty much anywhere they can put a table)
my only cons are it takes me 29 hours to fly to the phils..and although i didnt really see any bugs around like i would see here in the states, there are a lot of ants, but they dont bite you like the fire ants do here..

first let me start off by saying i am an american and i have never traveled outside the united states..i am very leary and nervous about leaving my country, but i had met a girl from the philippines and decided to vist her, and being that she lived not far from samal island i figured it would be a great way to spend a week together..i have no complaints..the service was great, the weather was perfect. the food in the phils is a little different than what i eat in the states, but it all tasted great..everyone i met spoke enough english to understand, but i was there with my girl so it was easier for her to talk tagalog to the staff..the best thing was eating breakfast, lunch and dinner on the beach, or in various locations around the resort..you ring a bell at your hut and the staff arrives and gets you wheatever you need..i took an inland tour with one of the staff as a guide, and it was great..by american standards i thought the resort was inexpensive and affordable..it takes about an hour by boat to get to the island, but i enjoy boating, especially being on the ocean..if you take a day trip to the city of davao, and you are caucasian, expect to get a lot of people wanting to talk to you or say hello, and pose for pictures for girls..

calm and nice place”

jungle setting, beautiful flowers and nice rooms

You need to take a boat ride from Davao to Samal Island where Gorei is located. The travel will take around 45 mins to an hour. The location of the resort is very recommendable for couples who wanted a romantic and private moments. Excellent place for honeymoons. I booked for 2 nights but only stayed 1 night because my daughter doesn't have much to enjoy there. Not recommendable for travelers who have kids and are looking for kids stuffs and facilities. Food and Drinks are quite expensive, better to bring your own water and beverages. This hotel is best for solo travelers and honeymooners wanting a private, peaceful and romantic stay.

Sad to leave... so we extended ”

We were hesitant given some of the reviews, but decided to book the bungalow for three nights. We were overwhelmed with the service provided by Teteng our butler. The food was exceptional and the animals (birds, ducks, geese, and chickens) on the property give the Hof Gorei a unique style that compliments its lush surroundings. The pool is well shade and on a steep section of the resort. Totally serene and tranquil. Low or high tide swimming at the beach is a delight. Sunsets at the end of the pier- come and see for yourself you will be captivated by the anchored boats and the mountain range on the horizon.

Five stars across the board!”

Our families really enjoyed the accommodation, facilities, activities and food at Hof Gorei Beach Resort. The traditional Filipino food was excellent both in variety and deliciousness. The beach is outstanding and having meals served on the beach under a canopy of palms was memorable. I will really treasure my Hof Gorei memories.

It's like.. Home Sweet Home”

Service Oriented, Good Food and Great Secluded Getaway for Couples

We were a couple searching for a quiet secluded getaway. Hof Gorei was a pleasant surprise with their unique services. We were supplied with our private attendant. Everyone was very hospitable especially Marlon, our personal attendant. Ms. Jeanne April, the owner, was a very gracious hostess. The vast variety of tropical birds and animals were an additional pleasure especially feeding the hornbills. The accommodations were comfortable and clean. We would definitely return to Hof Gorei. Ww will strongly recommend this hideaway resort to our friends in Canada and Manila.

Perfect for the Price ”

I’ve read all the reviews and I’ve stayed at other places on Samal island. The workers were very friendly and helpful. The food tasted fantastic! The food was priced fine. Especially when you consider the overnight cost was fair. You have the beach swimming pool Sea-Doos and all kind of boats you can use. For a brief time it rained during our stay and the workers were quick to supply umbrellas for everyone. They even have an area for free Wi-Fi, but why would you care about Wi-Fi or TV when you’re at a gorgeous island beach resort. Are there nicer resorts? If you want to pay 3 to 10 times the price . I definitely recommend this place.

Nice getaway”

Beautiful property, quiet and peaceful

I enjoyed my stay at Hof Gorei very much. I had 2 nights of the best sleep I can remember in a long time. All the food I had was excellent, staff were all warm and friendly. The pool was excellent as well. A few things worth noting, over at ST Ana Wharf you will be constantly pestered to buy things- I recommend you arrive very close to departure time so you don't have to deal with that for too long. I was about 1 hour early and hated every minute of the wait. The ride over is about 70min each way, so be prepared for that. I would have gladly paid extra to travel on a speed boat with cushioned seats- to cut that time in half or 3rd. Once at the property, no worries, nice place to spend time. It is pretty isolated from the main road on the island, not so much for a sight seeing trip- my wife and I paid to be taken to the bat cave and falls sites on a couple of 125cc mopeds- my rear took a beating, as far as I can tell, that is the only way you can get to the main road- be prepared if take the mopeds- it is a rough and bumpy ride- fun if you are up for the adventure.

Hof Gorei Beach Resort”

Staff service, Cleanliness, Food, The Hotel Setting.
There is still alot of work going on here but not that it disturbs the tranquility of the place. It is expensive enough without the service charge on top.

I found my stay at the Hof Gorei absolutely brilliant and the staff couldn't do enough for me, The food was fantastic and fresh with me never having tasted Philippino food before I had a great time sampling the different dishes. We had a power cut one night but instead of it making the stay bad it made it more romantic for me and my girl friend with a half moon and only candle light at the bar to illuminate the surrounding area. I can't recommend a stay at the Hof Gorei highly enough but be prepared to spend some of your hard earned cash.

Hidden Paradise”

Nature, Staff, Food...Peace
None

I had read previous reviews of Hof before, and was intrigued by the place and the value... well, no disappointments here! I've been to several resorts and hotels in the Philippines this year and i've yet have to find a place as special as this one. So many pluses to this place, but none actually better than the great staff ms. April has under her supervision. Of course i'll return to the many friends I left at Hof: manager Randy, kuya Joel, ate Tata and lovely ms. April... and countless other friends i made there... Spent there 7 days and honestly my life changed for the better... Staff was amazing, and my stay was wonderful!! Just wish i could visit on a weekly basis...its that nice! Care free living at its best! Highly recommended for honeymoon. If you are looking for night clubs and night life... don't bother, this is wrong for you, but if you love nature, easy living, beaches, pool, island hopping, great food, adventures, and don't mind living with a few ants, this is the place to visit! of course, they'll welcome anyone, but oh so nice hidden paradise for lovers...
