This was my second visit and again I loved it. The atmosphere, the friendly service, the excellent rooms make for a great and very enjoyable stay. This time I had the larger room with a king-size bed. Luxury for a very affordable price and great value for money. Samal Island isn't exactly known for its entertainment or its brilliant nightlife... More

Our stay in Samal Island Huts was definitely one of the highlights of our Davao trip! Stayed here for 2 nights last December 2012 (please ignore the 'Date of Travel: Feb 2013', had to choose one from the options). BOOKING EXPERIENCE Kim and Pieter, the owners of the resort, were very quick to reply to our emails and text messages.... More

PJ and Kim make this unique place on earth a home away from home! Their kindness, generosity and genuine concern for others is not in words only, but in deeds. Thank you so much for your hospitality and assistance. I forgot my jacket (which has very personal significant value) and Kim contacted me and stated my jacket was left in... More

This was probably the most memorable part of my holiday. Staying in this place, you feel like a king - everything you want is there. There is a bar with a refrigerator and with every alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage that you want. Adrian the cook can prepare any type of meal (Filipino, Western) - I particularly loved the Belgian style... More

I had a wonderful time there. It was quiet and very peaceful. Peter and Kim were so nice and made sure that all of our needs were taken care of. Adrian is a great cook. I would recommend Samal Island Huts to anyone who is looking for a quiet get away.

I had a great stay as a guest of PJ and Kim and I have nothing but good things to say about Samal Island Huts. Quite, comfortable, very well presented in a convenient location with excellent food prepared by Adrian. The cost of the stay was more than reasonable considering the venue. Pleasant staff and magnificent surrounds make for a... More

Very safe location, owner PJ runs a very reasonable priced dive boat and shop, nice quiet and relaxing family atmosphere. This hotel is very small with simple cozy huts. Stayed a full week and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The hotel was wonderfully quiet and the owners make it feel like your own house. I contacted the owners ahead of my... More

A bit away from the mainstream. But it's very remoteness makes it the charm. Dutch manager. So you know that everything is just right. The beach is unlike others on Samal. It's not caged in and one can walk and enjoy snorkeling and other activities are there. Plus one can sometimes even see the sea turtles. Service is good. This... More
