Loved my stay here. Grant and Violet are super nice and super helpful! Grant setup diving with a couple of quick phone calls. Violet whipped out great meal after great meal. The facilities were clean, well kept and reasonably priced. The house and rooms are awesome, really fun. Waterfall into the pool, private decks, firm mattress.. what's not to like???

This is THE place to be unless you're determined to pay hundreds for a tiny white sand beach. If that's your idea of a bargain, then go... Otherwise, stay at Green Gate, you won't regret it.

Grant and Violet provided us with everything we needed to truly experience the Phillipines. I would not have had half the experiences I did if it wasn't for them! If you eat there makes sure you have Violet make you the ribs! We will be back...in NUMBERS!!!

Perfection!
If you wanna see what a mansion would look like to Filipinos, come here. Well, at least to me it was. It was really great. The place was big, green, and quiet.

No TV's but the owners are there so part of what you're paying for is mingling for entertainment. If you're not a friendly chum then there's always the pool and the garden to keep you company

Big ole Ozzy is also around to entertain you. This lion of a dog wouldn't mind having pics taken of him, just make sure the owners are around coz he's quite intimidating.

Violet and Grant are the nicest couple I've ever met. They're like family members you never knew you had. No one else could make you feel more welcome.

I'll definitely be back for more

Our family of 10 stayed in green gate for 2 days t'was memorable and satisfying coz' of its privacy,being very green, serene and spacious. The friendliness and accommodating attitudes of the host, violet and grant as well as as the staff is something to treasure. The rooms are neat and spacious the veranda and the landscaped green garden is breath taking. I recommend Green Gate to anyone dreaming of a peaceful atmosphere, great personal services and a very reasonable cost. The 10 minutes drive to the airport (now that the roads are concreted) is a plus.

This is our ninth (9th) stay in Green Gate for the past 18 months!!!!! and its a reason for that :
When you enter behind the Green Gate....An amazing landscaped green garden appears to you..with white flowers hanging from the pergola....Palm trees....and lots of green plants and flowers.
It's a wery nice big mansion with big terraces. And overbuild sitting groups, a nice pool to cool off in.
Our room here is always the Pool View room. It's big with very exclusive furniture. Aircon. Free Wi-Fi. Big bathroom with bathtub and shower.

The owners, Violet and Grant, and the staff here are so nice and accommodating. And they will help you with anything....You just ask them..And they will gladly help you....
The food here is absolutley superb, cooked by Violet. I strongley recommend the Baby Back Ribs.....and the Persian Chicken Curry with Diced Tomatoes.. and the Onion Rings...and the Chicken Kebab...And you get brewed coffee from Starbucks!!

The prices here are reasonable and fair..
This is a place for relaxing..God food..in quiet surroundings...
I travel a lot and i have stayed in places like Shangrila Mactan and Radisson Blu Cebu... but i like Green Gate better cuz of the quiet home feeling you find here..
And you get much more value for your money here!

Thank you Violet and Grant for the great times we had together!!!!
See you soon again.........

Room Tip: I recomend the Pool viue room.. or the garden viue room.
