Great location, very friendly staff and good food. Decent wifi too - nice little cottages, probably best in Port Barton. Great beach bbq in the evenings. Staff went out of their way to help with late check out etc

We were so lucky to find this place it was overbooked but we luckily got a cancellation, right on the beach, the staff were magnificent and super sweet! The rooms were very clean so we're the bathrooms.

Unfortunately we stumbled upon this place on Valentine's Day. It's on the beach, they had nice candles and decorations and made more of an effort for the occasion than anywhere else we had seen so we gave it a chance. Big mistake. This was literally the worst food we had in our 3 weeks trip in the Philippines. Myself and...

Good: beach front (as many other "resorts"). Bad: staff doesn't seem to care to much. For what you pay and for the notes they leave on the walls you expect your room to be cleaned: no cleaning. We got a private cottage that supposed to have hot water. Yes hot water after 20 minutes when your shower is over. If...

A lot of problems with the plumbing and the shower but the stuff was great and take care of all our requests. There is 24/7 electricity (not every place in port barton had that). The location is great on the front of the beach wich is also quite and amazing. The restraunt of the hotel very good.

After leaving our horrid first nights accommodation we stumbled across this great place as we walked along the beach. We opted for the more expensive cottage, plenty of room, light, airy and the first hot shower I had in 10 days!!! Service is excellent, friendly and polite. All the food we had (breakfast and dinner) were great and served quickly...

When we arrived my friend and I were sick and the staff were super nice and friendly and went out of their way to help us. It's a beautiful place with nice garden right on the sand. The bungalows were nice the other rooms not great and basic but fine. Good restaurant and beach side bar. Nicest to chill in...

I was really looking forward to my return trip to this place, BUT, the English owner is no longer here, and it shows. Once the overseas owner is away, and a Pinay is running this place all by herself, it has become terrible. The staff are generally rude and don't give care, the meals in the restaurant are awful, the...
