My best friend brought me here with his families and another friend from the states. We check in to their rooms, rooms are really very rustic and old. Then we rented a boat from the hotel for 1500 pesos, which is good for 3 hours. The boat man said that we can go to Sombrero Island, the only decent beach...

The rate already included the meals and they were yummy. They served a starter, three entrees and a desert. Water, instant coffee, instant chocolate was available 24 hours in the...

Quite farther than the other resorts in the area but it's location turned out to be an advantage as it is quite secluded. It has a beachfront which is not full of motorized boats used by divers as a take-off station. Adjacent to a protected marine area which makes it ideal for snorkelling. Great place, great food, great staff, great...

General: Rustic, basic accomodations, with a homey feel. A place where you spend little time in your room and most of your time...

“get a room facing the ocean”
 of 5 bubbles AnaO629, 28 Nov 2012 | Read review
“You have to go down a flight of stairs to reach the shore. Thus, to reach your rooms, you have to climb. If you are the type of traveler who exhausts yourself at the end of the day (or can barely stand after a good meal), it might be best to choose rooms at the lower level. But if you want a better view and you always have the drive to reach your room no matter what, then the extra flight of stairs will do you good. Also, the currents are sometimes strong, so make sure to have a buddy or a divemaster with you.”
