This place (like much of Bantayan island) unfortunately never got over the typhoon damage, it seems. The positive reviews below are definitely fake. We booked for 3 nights, were forced to stay for 1, and hope that our photos will be sufficient to get a refund: dirty, broken bungalows, no water, broken pick-up van, desolated pool and kitchen etc. The...

Here we found what were always looking for: Our private beach bungalow! Directly on a tropical beach near to a small village. A peaceful place surrounded by coconut trees on a private compound. Its not like a hotel, its like your own place in paradise. You are living here like a local with caretaker and a small but very friendly... More

We booked already in December, but the resort was closed due to the damamges of the tayphoon. The owner (who was meanwhile in Germany for medical check up, offered us to refund... More

This hotel/resort was damaged after Typhoon Yolanda and is not in business. No rooms, no water, no electricity. The German owner has left the country. Do not book this hotel or you will be looking for accommodations elsewhere on Bantayan. I will say Expedia provided me with a refund and were very helpful.
