We didn't book in advance so we slept in both the deluxe and the basic room. Both rooms perfect for the price. Food ok and good service! Our bus to manila departed in the night and we could store our luggage and get a shower. Owner is always laughing so good vibes and amazing view!!

We stayed here for 5 nights. We had booked in advance & were glad we had, as they seemed to be fully booked almost all the time. There are reasons for that: great service, location, food, spectacular views from dining area, helpful connections to guides & tours (Arnold & Joel), & wonderful hospitality offered by host Susan & her staff!

I stayed with a group of friends for 2 nights at Sanafe lodge and we occupied 3 rooms (two Deluxe and one Standard). The rooms provide the basic amenities, a quite comfortable bed, a working shower with somewhat warm water and a shower curtain (both not standard in that category in the Philippines). Deluxe rooms and standard rooms are not...

I am a solo backpacker, and I was plesently surprised to find this cheap dormitory in Banaue. Although not advertised since I was the only one in the dorm, and the hotel is obviously geared more towards couples on a romantic get away, I enjoyed the homey cabin feel and the gorgeous terrace. The staff I also found extremely helpful....

Apologies for the delayed review, but here it goes. We generally chose this accommodation due to its good reviews and great views of the town. This lodge is not hard to locate since its located at the center of the town just beside the market and near the i guess public terminal. Since the lodge's check in time is XX:XX...

The lodge has a great view from the restaurant area and it has some of the better food in town. The staff were helpful and friendly. The rooms basic but pretty clean. Like most places round here there aren't and power points in the rooms. I did find a power point in the room at the far left of the...

The restaurant and deck at Sanafe are amazing, looking out at the river below and other areas of the town. The rooms are simple and adequate and not expensive. Quite good for Banaue. We ate all our breakfasts and dinners here for two days and enjoyed every meal. I would stay here again.

This place is located high in banaue so offers great views from the Terrace. We stayed in a deluxe double (1600pesos). Bed is comfortable, shower was warm. Guide Regina took us on a two day tour to Bataan, with some great hiking. She knows a lot and is very flexible. We could leave our luggage in the storage in sanafe,...

Great location - a few steps from the market terminal. Terrace - the perfect terrace patio to drink/eat - magic views of the rice. Rooms - very old, old towels, old curtains, no plug points to charge electronic devices, grubby shower/toilet. Expensive rooms considering what it offers. Expensive food and drink in the town. Friendly owner and staff.

I traveled with my fiance on this trip for our anniversary. We only stayed one night in SanaFe at the Deluxe rooms downstairs. The town of Banaue is very small, we arrived at 7am and was allowed to use our room right away. I think the Deluxe rooms downstairs are new; for Php 1600 I found it value for your...
