nice rooms, decent wifi, and electricity from afternoon till midnight. The staff is the main reason I'm taking time to write this review. They were always friendly and very helpful answering questions and pointing me in the right direction. I stayed in one Of the attached rooms and slept well. Dog barking and rooster calls are unavoidable on this island,...

Summer homes was one of the best places we stayed in in the Philippines. Yes, the rooms are very basic, but when you have such an amazing garden and view, what are you doing inside the room? The rooms are located on a large grass area, which has nice chairs and lay on in front of the amazing beach view....

My friends and I spent a few nights at Summer Homes in April 2013 and that was great ! We arrived there by night, after a long trip and we appreciated very much the diner (and the cocktails !) on the beach by the light of a bonfire. The staff was really friendly and welcoming and the rooms comfortable and...

Rooms are basic but good. In my opinion the rooms (not the cottages) worth 800 PhP, but their fare is 950. Staff is skilled, very kind and helpful. Location is perfect. Wifi a little bit weak, but in Port Barton you can't complain. Restaurant is a bit pricey, but you can choose others in town, cheaper and very tasty (Bamboo...

We stayed at Summer Homes for six nights in January 2015. The location is fabulous - right on the beach. We stayed in one of their four cottages; the accommodation is fairly basic but the room was clean and comfortable. There is no air conditioning and as there is no electricity between midnight and midday (this is the norm in...

Summer Homes offers food choices that other places on the beach don't offer, so it's worth a try; however, their food is also a bit more expensive. You can sit outside near the ocean and have a candlelight dinner, which is lovely. A good place to go if you just can't eat any more grilled meat or fish.

A really nice place in a small down which seemed to be in the middle of nowhere. It is a rough ride to get there. It took about 4 hrs from the Puerto Princessa airport on an okay road until the last hour. The road is like a roller coaster and when there is mud you need a 4 wheel...

Summer Homes had a lot of good reviews and praises online so my boyfriend and I decided to have our lunch and dinners over there. Food was better than what we expected so we were pleased. View is also nice and price is average for a touristy place. Now, one thing I really hated about this place and the main...
