A couple of friends of mine I made enthusiastic about the diving possibilities on Negros Oriental, more specific south of Dumaguete City. So finally they asked me to recommend a good place where they can stay together with their wives. I'm talking about 8 tourists who will stay for at least a week, thus occupying 4 bedrooms in a beach resort. This afternoon went to Mike's Dauin Beach Resort to have a look to see all about and if nice to make a reservation.
What a disaster. Entered the resort around 3pm today and took a seat at a table between the pool and the beach. Three staff members were @the bar that moment, but obviously to busy with each other about.....that they didn't care about two new visitors to come to their table and take an order for a drink and some food. Well after 15 min. I gave it up. So my suggestion for the owner of this resort, do post a sign near the entrance like: walk-in visitors not welcome, please try your luck elsewhere. Anyway the staff will be happy they managed to keep away 8 future guests from the resort allowing them to have even more time to chat with each other or any kind of other occupation that has nothing to do why an owner is running this kind of business.
Will inform my friends accordingly about my findings today. No need to say this is typical behaviour for a great number of resorts in this country. Very arrogant and ignoring customers. Well except for the PH there are so many more diving/beach resorts around the world where they show more interest to please customers.
