After staying in 4 different locations in dumaguete this has to be my favorite one. I drove here from dumaguete and I was impress on how the road has gone. The last 5 kilometers was rough but doable.(I drove a really small Hyundai eon). First feel of this area is peace and quiet! The room is very trendy good mix... More

Kookoo's nest is such a heavenly place! If you want to relax and be away from all the stress, this is the place you need. No television, No AC. Just pure nature. Its not for those who prefer the luxurious type of hotel. The owners are definitely taking good care of this place and I salute them for keeping it... More

What a beautiful place. The best place to relax and recover. The cottages are simple, but awesome. The food is OK and the owners and the staff are friendly. It's not made for people who like 5 stars hotels....and that's good!!

A wonderful place to just relax away from crowds or to do scuba and snorkelling right in front of the bungalows. I stayed for a week and never got tired of the food as they offer something different every evening. Comfortable bungalows right on the beach and friendly staff. Also offer high quality scuba instruction if you're interested in becoming... More

It's a bumpy ride to get to Kookoo's Nest, but once you're there you simply won't want to leave. The cottages are a marvel of construction. Food is superb. Snorkeling is fantastic. Best little spot on Negros as far as I can tell. Love it!

Quite difficult to access but worth the visit! The rooms are facing the ocean and are rustic but nice and confortable. You sleep with the waves sound! The food is very good and cheap. Finally, the owners are friendly and take time to speak with you.
