La Residencia Al Mar is one of the oldest hotels in Dumaguete. A beautiful, old house that was once the family home of Governor Escanos of Negros Oriental, this single-story residence on the Rizal Boulevard sea front was built in the old colonial Spanish style. Its present owners, Mr. and Mrs. Hilado, renovated it in a clever, tasteful manner preserving its charm while providing it with all the necessary modern amenities.

The small reception is warm with its well-polished red-tile floors and its Chinese porcelain jars. On either side of the reception are two restaurants, considered among the most elegant in town — the Don Atilano which serves good food in a pleasant Spanish setting, and the other which serves Filipino cuisine. You can also have breakfast here with the view of the sea through the bay windows.

    We are a family of 8 (5 adults and 3 children) from Denmark, who would like to book two nights at La Recendia Al Mar in Dumaguette, if you have any available rooms from December 20th to December 22nd 2008. We will need two double rooms and one room for four (two adults and two children). We would very much like some very nice rooms with ocean view. Do you have any rooms available? We are looking forward to hearing from you. Line and Henrik Beck, Denmark
