Stayed one night. Very laid back reception . Had no evening food available as kitchen staff sent home early . Sandwiches were made to acceptable standard to feed kids .
The room was clean and spacious. Truly the fixtures and fittings in the room and bathroom were very dated and there was no hot water.
The breakfast was minimal to feed a mouse. With no facility to buy extra as previous guests had eaten all . Ran out of eggs and bread. The coffee was rationed to small cups.
The kids adored the swimming pool at night time and in the morning. A big plus for the enjoyment of this hotel
Not cheap or really good value .

Room Tip: Corner suites have big balcony with great views.

Very nice employees and good food especially the tocino! Also very quite and relaxing place away from the crowd. They helped us buy a ticket for the boat going home. Will surely go back and stay here again though the aircon was very bad.

Stayed: February 2016

PROS: Very quiet place, nice rooms, value for money, average food, friendly staff, nice view of the ocean.

CONS: Dirty swimming pool, the place seems not maintained for over a long time, very isolated place. No nightlife, and far from everywhere.

Room Tip: Rent a motorcycle if you want mobility around the island (this will cost you more). Rent a room facing the ocean.

I spent a night here last summer and I had the best time. This quaint, cosy little hotel was situated a little further than most people are used to, but that was one of the best things about it because you feel disconnected from the constant rush of the city. Because of this, my cousin and I were pretty much undisturbed everywhere, especially while we were tanning by the pool - which had the perfect view of the sea beyond. You are surrounded by nature everywhere, from mountains to the ocean. It's very relaxing. Needless to say, I automatically loved it. The hotel also has a very homey feel to it. The beds were clean, the towels fresh. There were DVD stacks which we could watch. It's not a five-star hotel so don't expect a flat screen TV or what. The shower was pretty basic. They provided us with the usual hotel toiletries.

As for the staff, they were attentive as well. I had the best danggit, garlic rice and orange juice for breakfast. And I thought I already had the best one in Coron, Palawan but apparently, Poro could give them a run for their money.

We spent very little for one night. Just about Php 1700. You don't get this kind of service, and spectacular views of the sea and the peaceful feeling of being undisturbed for this amount in the city.

If you want to stay somewhere homey, away from the hustle and bustle of the city where you can just relax and breathe, this is the perfect place for you.

I will definitely come back here. Again and again.

First my Review of the hotel, and later ill give some info of how to get there and general info about the islands.
1. Hotel Review:
Premises:
-Quite ok in general
-some parts of the building are kinda old
-bed was very good
-pool looked nice (didnt use it though)
-Rooms come with aircon, fridge and TV+DVD player (at least our room had one). But: TV was unuseable due to bad signal (VERY grainy)
-The powerplugs in our roon dont allow to use the european plug, like in most hotels in asia. Make sure you have an adapter with you.

Service:
-Staff is fairly kind
-Wifi didnt work at all (it comes wireless itself from somewhere. the antenna is on the roof. bad weather = no signal)
-food was quite good, but also pretty pricey (not much on the menu that is below 200peso)
-Breakfast is included, but only the continental one, which comes with 2 slices of toast, butter, nearly no jam at all, one small piece of fruit and free coffee/tea. that is not much more than you get in a hostel. you can upgrade to american (bacon and eggs) but that will cost you 100peso extra.
-transfer back to the port wasnt offered to us as a free of charge service. they called 300peso/6euro for that.
-they dont accept credit cards. so prebook and prepay it via agoda or make sure that you have enough cash with you (no ATM on camotes islands as far as i know)

Location:
-From consuelo port on Pacijan island it takes about 40min to nearly one hour to reach this hotel on poro island (its about 22km away from the port)
-a beach is not in walking distance (30mins by walking the hotel staff told us)
-nothing is around
-Great view over parts of the island and the see
-the location on tripadvisor is accurate (one review mentioned,that google maps is wrong)
-No usable internet connection with my Globe mobile sim card. Barley 2g signal.

We found it quite hard to get all information together in order to get here as foreigners. So following some additional information.
2. How to get to camotes island and this hotel:
-We started from manila and went by plane to cebu
-From airport we took an official registered airport cab to the northern bus terminal (costs around 200peso/4euro)
-then we got on a bus which passes through Danao (50peso/1euro per person, you pay on the bus).
-Danao is not the last stop, so its not mentioned on the signs. you have to ask people at the bus terminal to get to the right bus.
-the bus takes around an hour to Danao. the port is directly near the road, so just tell the ticket salesman on the bus, that you want to go to Danao Port in order to get to Camotes. They will drop you right at the port.
-there are several ferry companies which go to the camotes islands. most likely you will go with jomalia shipping, since they are the only ones, which depart several times a day (5.30am, 8.30 am, 11am, 2pm 5.30pm and 9pm)
-if you go with jomalia you will pay 180peso/3.50eur for non aircon and 200 peso/4eur with aircon
-the boat ride takes 2hrs and you arrive at consuelo port on Pacijan island
-motorbike, trike and van taxis are waiting for you
-prices are negotiable
-Our van taxi driver startet at 500peso /10euro for the ride to the my little island hotel. we ended at 300peso/6euro (we gave him 50peso extra later, cause we didnt know that it was that far and would take that long)

3. general info about camotes:
-Poro island has mostly bad mobile signals, at least with a Globe sim card. you wont be able to do anything with your smartphone, unless its something between 1am and 5am. and even then its just 2g. Only exception (as far as i know) is the area around Poro Port, which has a 3G cell.
-Pacijan island has some Globe 3g cells. One around the center/san francisco/the Fiesta Island Mall and at least one more at Santiago Beach. Dont know about the status with Smart, at least at santiago there is only 2g with Smart.
-Wifi connection in the hotels is mostly very slow and unstable
-if you need something necessarily, get it before you come to the camotes.
-there is a bigger mall on Pacijan, the Fiesta Island Mall. If you forget sth. you may be able to find it here
-As of today and as far as I know, there is still no ATM on the whole camotes islands. So make sure you have enough cash with you. Keep in mind, that you arent able to pay with credit card at every hotel here (santiago bay resort for example accepts credit cards, but not the my little island hotel). So whether you have enough cash or you prebooked and prepaid the room or you will need to get creative in order to pay the room ;)
-Camotes Islands are nothing special. If you are on a tight time budget, you may find better places on the philippines. If you travelled for a long time and you need a week or so off, go for it. its not very touristy, it has decent beaches, some caves, a lake... there is stuff to explore. but you will have seen better if you travelled through philippines for some weeks. After 3 months of travelling through Southeast Asia we enjoyed it here very much, by doing just nothing but relaxing.

Stayed: September 2015, travelled as a couple
