First, be warned, this place is remote. The taxi from the main ferry terminal was $1000. I wanted to take side trips to the bat cave and waterfalls but it was not practical due to the distance. Also, it's in a little village with nothing of interest, no restaurants or entertainment. So you’re stuck with the hotel kitchen, which closes... More

The staff are nice, available and wanting to help, food is good and healthy, taking your breakfast from the veranda with the view on the sea is outstanding, rooms are confortable / decent (a possible, simple improvement might be to add a few hangers...) and there is good / free WIFI BUT: it is in Kaputian, close to the south...

That's what it feels like, to be back home ! again I can echo what I wrote about in my first review, after travelling this wonderful country for many years this is by far the best hotel. Forget hotels where staff stand regimental dressed in ties and waistcoats where food and drink costs a small fortune or a large one... More

The staff is very friendly and happy to help you visit the island. The terrace makes it easy to meet and chat to other guests and the staff, or just sit, relax and enjoy the view over the ocean. The rooms are well equipped and clean. Sea facing rooms have great views. There's a very small private beach so swimming... More

I stayed in red parrot on my recent trip to Davao samal island and I could say that they are one of the best in samal. Aries the manager was very accommodating and helped us in everything that we needed to make our trip memorable. The rooms were very nice and the AC was quite powerful, the food wasn't gourmet...

We stayed at this Inn for 3 nights with my family (13 adults plus 4 toddlers) last Feb. 2014. All I can say is that, it was a blast. Excellent service, location and we got what it's worth for our money. Aries (the manager) was very accommodating and gave us what we need and made sure that we enjoyed our... More

From the moment you arrive the friendly greetings and attentive yet not intrusive service. A feeling of belonging to a family is part of the experience. The rooms are spacious and well appointed and very clean. I stayed in their larger room with a balcony fronting an ocean view. The gentle lapping of the waves adding to its tranquility. The... More

Staying at the Red Parrot is like staying with a Filipino family, the staff go the extra mile with out any fuss or bother and nothing is too much for them, we did on a few occasions buy our own food from the market and cook ourselves, the staff were more than willing to assist us. The food cooked from... More

Nice view overlooking the Tinalikud island. Plus it's near the Kaputian Beach Resort which offers an affordable but worthwhile beach experience. We weren't able to try their food though as we opted to buy from the outside (two thumbs up for a zero vitiate fee!). You'll adore (if not annoyed) by the talkative red parrots!
