Very clean and run professionally with a very relaxed atmosphere. Not only was the owner very friendly and helpful , accommodating and suggesting / organising trips out to local beaches and the island but we found all the staff very friendly and efficient, creating a nice relaxed atmosphere. Rooms are good value, simple but clean and have all the basic... More

I stayed at the Jotay Resort in Santa Ana while working as a volunteer advisor in Sep, 2014. I enjoyed my stay immensly, especially the view from my room overlooking the salt water pool and vast sandy beach. Staff were very friendly, and helpful in organising trips and bike rides. The resort has the best restauraurent in the region, providing... More

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review of us, we really appreciate it. To clarify one point, the pool is actually freshwater but we use a filtration system that uses salt not a harsh chlorine hence sometimes it might be slightly 'salty', better than a sore throat and red eyes More

This hotel is on the beach, has a swimming pool and is clean and well maintained. The rooms are basic, the service is average. We looked at several hotels (the selection was slim). Jotay is probably the best combination of value and quality in Santa Ana, though at 2000 pesos for the basic room, basic bedding, no wifi, non working... More

Regarding your review, however I should like to cover several of your points as there are always two sides to everything: Value – you are shown the room, as is, and you are free to negotiate such as breakfast. You chose to pay by credit card thereby not attracting a discount. Service water – is freely available in the bar... More

I traveled to Sta Ana in July, 2014. Found Jotay by word of mouth from van driver from Tuguegarao and also on advice of tourist police in airport in Tuguegarao. All over the Philippines you can find pleasant "beach resorts," but this one really is nice. First, it has a great setting with spectacular views...sunset and sunrise amazing. Although you... More

Stayed there for 5 nights in April. Very friendly homely atmosphere, staff are very helpful and accomodating. Rooms are clean and tidy with hot showers, I recommend the pool side as they open onto the ocean. I had the misfortune to fracture my leg while boarding a banka boat at San Vicente and needed hospital treatment. Trevor the owner of... More

Here is my list of Top 10 Reasons Jotay Resort is Worth Visiting (and Returning to): 10. Free Wifi: The resort has free WIFI, but internet access is not high-speed. 9. Amenities: The property has a restaurant with good local and international food options, rooms with parking, a small souvenir shop, and space in their restaurant’s chiller (for a secret... More

I was here very recently last May 24, 2014. I arrived late at Sta. Ana very tired, hungry, and irritable after more than six hours of land travel from Tuguegarao. It was almost 7PM then and I contacted another resort in the area and was given the runaround for a simple question if rooms are available. Fortunately for me, the... More

Jotay's is probably the best value place at the moment (2014) in Sta. Ana, Cagayan. It's got everything you need including wifi, resto, aircon, friendly and accommodating staff. We enjoyed the food very much - quite tasty but with a home-cooked feel. You can ask the staff for help in getting transport up and early so you can explore Palaui... More

We booked 4 rooms in early May 2014. No problems encountered with our reservations. A staff member had us check out the rooms first before we chose which rooms to occupy. The rooms are basic but clean, with enough space for all members of our big group. The kids enjoyed playing in the pool. The food is reasonably priced and... More
