Sarangani Highlands Garden and Restaurant General Santos City Reviews
Relaxing place ideal for overnight stays Nov 08, 2012
Sarangani Highlands is well known for its view of the bay as well as its restaurant.
For me, the biggest appeal of Sarangani Highlands is that you are far from the madding crowd - which, on the contrary, makes it boring after more than a day's stay. The restaurant has great views of Sarangani Bay, especially at night. Although the food is good, it is not spectacular, plus the prices are more expensive than some mid-range Manila restaurants. Breakfast is included in the price and was quite flavorful.
The view of Sarangani Bay from main building's (especially from the second floor) is blocked by a large multi-function hall, so the verandahs are not as preferred compared to the lounge or the restaurants if one wants to admire nature. And the view from the rooms balcony (some rooms have a small balcony) is not as great, as it opens to the dirt road behind and a wide open stretch of land on the mountain range.
The room is fairly good for the price, there was an LCD TV with satellite channels (although the remote didn't work). The bed was comfortable enough for a good night's sleep, and the bathroom is clean with an overhead heater shower.
This is a place to stay only for a night or two at the most, unless you go out to downtown GenSan or the nearby beaches. The lack of a swimming pool will get visitors with children devoid of activity after the first few hours - although photographers will enjoy the gardens and the numerous bonsai plants.
If one travels away from the resort then it will cost a hefty sum of money - PHP350 for taxi fare (the only form of public transportation to and from the resort). Multiply that twice for a roundtrip journey and you can stay at the higher end hotels in GenSan due to the additional cost. One big plus is that they have free shuttle service to the airport (about 20 minutes away).
Highly recommended for a two day stay (i.e. overnight), although I strongly recommend you move on to other areas to explore if staying longer. The lack of a pool limits the activities if you decide to stay only at the resort.
