I have stayed at the Tavern a couple of times and also across the street at the Tavern Annex.

We came in the evening and the hotel looked so lovely.It has a simple and spacious lobby. The front desk ladies were accommodating.The King bed was very soft and comfortable. The room was quite big. Our room was facing the boulevard so we got the nice morning view. Tip: for late snacks order early as room service ends at 10pm.

Room is 2400 a night 50 bucks including breakfast but is right on the ocean with a balcony. The Boulevard below... More

I love the fact that they have a list of the schedule of ferries/roro to Siargao. Rooms are clean. I have tried both the City... More
