After arriving in Caramoan, my boyfriend and I had original planned on heading to Gota beach but was stopped by Rene who suggested we take a look at RdeS in Paniman. He wasn't pushy or anything like that--was very sincere and offered to take us out there. So we thought "why not?!" After about a 15 minute ride down to... More

The service is fantastic!!! Not just from the crew but from the owner as well. We were well equipped when it comes to what to expect on the island itself since the owner is very patient in answering all my question before visiting the Caramoan.

The 'New RDS' has only been open for 12 months and the owners have made a great start, but things could be even better with a couple of simple improvements. Firstly, a bar fridge is a must so that guests can get a cold drink at the end of a long day island hopping. It is tiresome to ask staff... More

Relatively new. Clean. Great food. But the price gouging killed it. The staff were really accommodating and nice, but after overcharging us, they did not even have any official receipt to issue for the amount we paid. :( If you plan to stay here, perhaps it's best to pay via credit card ahead of time, not cash, to avoid getting...

After 50-ish email exchanges 2 months before the trip, to the well wishes as we go home, RdS has been the perfect host. Prompt email responses from Tita Myrna's husband even during the wee hours have been very helpful. We took the Virac route (which people hardly take because of a 1-hour trike and 2-hour bangka ride) and they assisted... More

The moment we arrived we were treated like royalties. The RDS staff was very accommodating and attentive to our needs, service par-excellence! The place was simply adorable, peaceful and quite, comfortable and clean, you can easily relax and sleep without distraction; hmmmm! except for my grand kids which I can not resist playing with. The hostel has clean and spacious... More

This was one of the best vacation I had for a very long time. The owners are very cool and knows how to make the stay the best ever for all of their guest. Should be the first resort if you're considering to visit Caramoan
