Very Good

The service is pretty average, the bathroom looks dirty and has low water pressure. The door key was not working in one occasion and I needed to go down to see the reception.
- Business travel
The rooms can be compared to a 5 star hotel.

I had the best view. I stayed at the 8th floor. Nice room and good food! Will definitely stay here again 😊

Hotel Essencia was great! The room was huge and the bathroom was very clean. The window view was not the best (see photos) but, I guess, that’s what you get when you avail a discount. Most of the staff was very accommodating and room service was fast. The food was delicious, especially their sisig and breakfast. The free breakfast buffet was great! There were a lot of dishes to choose from. As for cleanliness, the room was overall clean, there was no weird smell when entering the room but I did find a dead cockroach underneath one of the bed side tables. My mother and sister also saw a leak on the divider that divides the shower and toilet, maybe they could fix that but these are all very small concerns for us and did not affect our stay in the hotel. To sum it up, we had an amazing stay in the hotel! I will definitely recommend to my family and friends whenever they’re in Dumaguete.

Nice location if going on tourist spots
It was great, the hotel itself is quite amazing. Although there is a little confusion there because I thought I made it clear that we would be having a one king size bed but the one given was a twin bed, but it's okay we didn't make a fuss about it. Over all, it was a great experience staying in your hotel. It made me love dumaguete more.
- Family vacation
Facilities could have been maintained. Towels are old whenever there is an event or function we could not order food service we stayed during Christmas holiday and food menu is very limited Breakfast very little option for pescatarian
