A Korean Touch
We didn't booked rooms there. We just drop by at the resort's restaurant called "Korean Bobs Restaurant" located at the back of Superman Korean Mart. We ordered Korean Wanton and Korean Dimsum Dumpling Ramen. An almost perfect taste of real Korean foods. In my observation, the restaurant has few staff. Service is average. Nothing special in this place except the food.

Big rooms but lacking many things
We found this hotel by asking around the place. It is located 2minute o foot from alona beach. Price was originaly 2000pesos but got it for 1500 with breakfast which wasnt much at all (small pancake, half a scrambled egg, banana and coffee). We met the owner as well and she was very nice. Room is big and with an extra bed 3 of us could fit in easily. However: - tap water has salty taste and taps are corroded. Pressure is also not much - there was a horde of ants coming out behind the tiles while showering - there are 2 discos next to place and music is so loud you wont be able to fall asleep. Not even with ear plugs. And this is biggest setback for this place.

An owner that will do any and everything possible to make you happy.
This is a very small hotel. Its location at Alona Beach is perfect to me. It is far enough away from the beach to block 90% of the loud party music that goes on until 3am sometimes, yet close enough that you can walk to the water in about 5 minutes. It is also on the highway so walking at night has lights to make it easy and safe to walk. Other locations can have you walking down small back streets with no lighting what so ever. Not the safest walk in the Philippines. The owner is a very friendly lady that will question you to find out your wants and needs, the go the extra mile to give you what your desires are. This is from: special diet requests for breakfast to personally designed tours of all the sites to see. We wanted a place to cook. Their cooking area was not set up for private customers use, so she bought a small propane one burner stove, a bottle of propane, pot, skillet, dishes, and ask if we needed anything else. We said, "yes, where is the market to buy meat" It turns out the closest was a 30 minute drive. She provided a free ride there so we could find it, and told us the actual price for a ride back by local transportation. Now granted, it isn't the biggest place to stay. It is a budget hotel. But where can you find that much personal attention? Bigger isn't always better. We had good aircon, good TV, good hot water for showers. Internet in every room that works with decent speed. (We had 4 megs download speeds.) We left another hotel we had booked for 8 days because we were insulted a number of times by an arrogant owner. We stayed here at Golden Sam the remaining 6 nights. Best decision we ever made.

A very nice hidden place close to everything you need with aircondition, private bathroom + towels, refrigiator and tv. Nice owners and they are open for making a cheaper deal. We payed 800p pr night for 6 nights. 3 min. from Alona Beach and tourist tours. GO THERE AND STAY.

Very nice room and close to everything!
The first 4 rooms are just finished so everything in the room is brand new! It is clean, big and comfortable! Jelly, the hostess, is super kind and helps you with everything you need! She told us about the plans for making a swimming pool and a second builiding. It is already very nice, but in the future (with these plans) it is going to be even nicer!! Alona Beach is only a 3 minute walk away and it is close to many bars and good restaurants.
