Family Country Hotel, General Santos City

Our trip to General Santos just came out of the blue. No plans, No definite itinerary. On Wednesday night January 02, 2013, I chit chatted with several blogger friends from General Santos telling them I might be visiting Magandang GenSan the next day. Come Thursday morning, We hurriedly pack our stuff and rode a jeepney to 80 (Sulop bus station), then transferred to a bus for General Santos. I SMS-ed Kuya Avel Manansala of informing him that ill be arriving in an hour or two. To cut the story short, Kuya Avel gladly offered a place to stay, The Family Country Hotel situated in Mateo road, Lagao, General Santos City.

Family Country Hotel was our official home in Magandang GenSan for two days. The hotel looked clean despite it being dubbed as an "old" hotel, it doesn't even look creepy. Infact, it is green everywhere! Trees, plants and a garden. The place is quiet so it's a perfect place for travelers who loves deep sleep. Everything looked pretty decent. The best fact for this hotel is that, it is a walking distance to three BIG Malls in the city, KCC Mall, Gaisano Mall and SM mall, Robinson's Mall is just a tricycle away too.  Location is best.

Upon arrival, the bellboy greeted us and initially asked to bring our stuff to our room, told the receptionist that we have arrived. (Do they really know me or did Kuya Avel told the staff to reserve a room for that girl with weird hair and a heavy backpack? Hmmm) He gave us the key to our room and followed us. That was such a nice gesture, they were really nice to us. That's a good first impression aye? Anyway, we got a Deluxe room for two. It's huge, clean and decent, what else should I be asking for?

Hello Deluxe room for two! We got Comfortable beds for two nights! I love how the room is well-lit.

 HUGE Bathroom!

Complimentary soap, shampoo & conditioner, toothbrush & toothpaste, and clean white towels.

HUGE closet.

 There's a coffee table for two in our room. yay!

We also got complimentary breakfast for two that we consumed in their lovely very filipino-ish restaurant, Cafe Leticia. They have plenty of condiments to choose from, tabasco, soysauce, wasabi, chili sauce etc etc.

 They have generous servings and I cant even consume all the tocino they served on my plate.
