Liberty's lodge is definetly the best accomedation for you in Apo. Don't expect showers because in most room you will find just a big bucket with cold water (like in everywhere alse in the island). We took the double bed room, the room was pretty clean and we had a mosquito protecting net which was very helpful. The lobby is... More

We stayed at the dormitories for 4 nights(250P per night or 800P with 3 meals) the room is very basic. The dining room is very nice and fun to hangout with beautiful balcony. The food is tasty and the menu is quite diverse. One thing I really didnt like is when we thought about taking dive course some where else... More

Pushy Mean Owners - So much better elsewhere on Apo! First off let me say how incredible Apo Island is, theres nothing like waking up and snorkelling with giant turtles, almost within an arms reach. I came to Apo in the last week of my 2 month visit to the Philippines. I had an incredible time and the Philippine people... More

The dorms are very basic, but it's part of the experience of being in a small and remote Island! If you're diving with Liberty Diving Center, you can get it for very good price (if not, it can be a little expensive and you can find better options in the village). The diving school is very good, good price, excellent... More

The lodge is literally in front of where you get dropped off from the boat, rooms are nice enough but the hot water was non-existent and no flush for the toilet. The whole of Apo has power cuts and electricity is put out after 9pmish making sleep difficult as it can get hot. All of which can be overlooked when... More

I booked them in advance, as another solo traveller said it can be complicated to get to the island, and Liberty has its own boat, which can be prearranged. Sounds ok, right? In the email it said that the boat will pick me up from 12.00 to 13.00. The boat did not show up until 14.10... Stayed in the dorm... More

We stayed there for 4 days. Overall, it was a good experience. The staffs were friendly and didn't hesitate to help their guest anytime. Even when my bf was seriously sick, the owner shared some medicine to help him. We were really grateful for that. There is also a beautiful sea view in the room and restaurant. The menu of... More

Liberty's Lodge is a very homey and sweet spot on tiny Apo island. Great service, they have rooms with several rates, they offer fun dives and a diving course- which we had the privilege to do. If you dive, make sure to check out the coconut spot, it's quite marvelous. You can also snorkel and spot large turtles close to... More

We stayed at this lovely place during Christmas and we enjoyed it so much. With all meals included in the price we found the value to be fantastic. The food was excellent and the staff was friendly. Snorkling just outside the Lodge revealed some amazing corals and alot of turtles. The diveshop is located right at the beach underneath the... More

Nice place with a soft backpacker feeling. Liberty's starts on the beach and then it meanders up along the cliff. The place has stairs and pathways that takes off in different directions and levels which gives you the feeling of an old fort or a palace from Arabian Nights. After breakfast just step out on the beach, turn left an... More
