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.
