You get what you pay for in this place. It is close to the airport, the staff are very helpful with whatever you need. They facilitated our ferry tickets rebooking three times which would have been a disaster for me to do. The best thing is they have a kitchen and a dining area where you can cook your own... More

We only stayed for one night because of a flight the next day and I'm glad we didn't stay longer. We had booked a twin room with shared bathroom and when we arrived at 11 o clock in the morning we were told to wait until 2 o clock for our room to be ready (which is totally ok since... More

We arrived midnight so we are not dead tired to investigate the place and we don't know where the front door is located since the door is a travel agency and next to it is a garage so we rang the bell and lights came on. We were greeted 2 men and checking in was a breeze and they help... More

A basic hotel. The room was tiny, had no window and was really hot. The A/C took forever to cut through the heat. The bathroom was nearly as big as the room itself. The did help to organise a bike to hire for island exporlation. It is a long way from shops. Service was good and they are the only... More

Room was small, but cosy, with comfortable bed, tv and shower. But the biggest advantage, which makes Marcelina Guesthouse a 5 star place, is its...kitchen. Guesthouse is very close to the Marcela Plaza and local marketplace. So if you get interesting ingredients, you can prepare it in the kitchen which is equipped with 2 grills and consume it on the...

dont bother driving there, it's literally down the road from the airport. the rooms are basic with rather thin walls, but although the place was almost full (both locals and international guests) we had no issue with noise. staff is friendly and helpful, and will book ferry tickets (no uplift) or the standard array of tours (reasonable uplift, much better...

The rooms are small but clean. The place offers value for money and the staff are nice. Its close to the airport and about 1.7k from the ferry. You can walk out the door and get tricycles easy enough. The ground floor will assist you with booking travel tours. They can also provide a van with driver for around 2.5k... More

There were good price-quality relation in this place. If you need a place where to sleep, this is just enough. Water pressure in shower wasn't the best one and water wasn't very warm but it was known before, so that was ok. We bought flight tickets there and price was comperable if we were bought those internet. We also bought... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. Upon arrival at the airport, we were picked up by Kuya Hapon. (we availed of the tour package) The service car was an SUV. After only about a blink of an eye we were at the guesthouse. Yes, it's that close to the airport that you can actually walk to save gas. =) The... More
