Hello Sir/ Ma'am, We would like to help you, this concern from our team about the deposit you made during check in. Normally if we asked for deposit 500.00. (guarantee for lost key,etc. only nor for room accom.),you should receive a copy of the receipt because this is refundable when you check out. During check out, you requested this 500 refund, but we have no record for the receipt of the deposit slip copy. You might be one of the arriving guests whom were not asked or obliged to make a deposit ,assuring us to leave and secure room keys to the office.We wish to sort out your concern Ma'am while you're with us, so we can compensate you if there's a need to do so before leaving the hotel. If we can secure a copy of the receipt Ma'am, we can make you a refund as soon as possible. Our apology if we missed to refund it to you. Thank you for staying with us Sir /Ma'am.We'll be hoping to see you again here and serve best service we can have.

We booked 6 rooms and all of them were outdated, stinky and dirty. I’m not sure how this place is called a resort because the amenities or service was close to being up to par. There are many other places to stay so don’t stay at this one.

Good day Gmgranflor, Thank you for staying at Lost Horizon Beach Resort. Though i respect your opinion regarding the 6 outdated, stinky and dirty room but i found it too much exaggerated. Could you please specifically name those rooms you mentioned so i could personally check? So far, our rooms has been upgraded and renovated since last year and in fact we have on-going construction of more rooms to accommodate more guests. As a matter of fact, we have a lot of returning guests who are satisfied with our rooms, facilities and services. Thank you for the comment. Regards!
