Apologies for the delayed review, but here it goes. We generally chose this accommodation due to its good reviews and great views of the town. This lodge is not hard to locate since its located at the center of the town just beside the market and near the i guess public terminal. Since the lodge's check in time is XX:XX... More

The lodge has a great view from the restaurant area and it has some of the better food in town. The staff were helpful and friendly. The rooms basic but pretty clean. Like most places round here there aren't and power points in the rooms. I did find a power point in the room at the far left of the... More

The restaurant and deck at Sanafe are amazing, looking out at the river below and other areas of the town. The rooms are simple and adequate and not expensive. Quite good for Banaue. We ate all our breakfasts and dinners here for two days and enjoyed every meal. I would stay here again.

This place is located high in banaue so offers great views from the Terrace. We stayed in a deluxe double (1600pesos). Bed is comfortable, shower was warm. Guide Regina took us on a two day tour to Bataan, with some great hiking. She knows a lot and is very flexible. We could leave our luggage in the storage in sanafe,... More

Great location - a few steps from the market terminal. Terrace - the perfect terrace patio to drink/eat - magic views of the rice. Rooms - very old, old towels, old curtains, no plug points to charge electronic devices, grubby shower/toilet. Expensive rooms considering what it offers. Expensive food and drink in the town. Friendly owner and staff.

I traveled with my fiance on this trip for our anniversary. We only stayed one night in SanaFe at the Deluxe rooms downstairs. The town of Banaue is very small, we arrived at 7am and was allowed to use our room right away. I think the Deluxe rooms downstairs are new; for Php 1600 I found it value for your... More

Our family (2 Adults & 2 Children) recently stayed at the Sanafe Lodge in Banaue. The lodge is centrally located and has wonderful views over the amazing rice terraces. After a day of touring we enjoyed coming back, sitting on the lovely veranda and taking in the views. Our room was the super deluxe with 2 queen beds and private... More

I am rating this property 5/5 on a relative perspective. This is already the best property in Banaue and the restaurant is also the most expensive. It's good value for money, since the room is spotlessly clean and has a great view of the rice terraces. As previous reviews suggested, there are no plugs in the room and visitors must... More

The Sanafe Lodge is nothing special, but the perfect place for a stay in Banaue. It is centrally located, just 100m from the market square and boosts amazing views over the town and surrounding rice fields. The staff speaks english and is very welcoming. There is free wifi and a great restaurant with cheap, yet delicious food. The Sanafe Lodge... More

The rooms were clean and comfortable. We had a lovely deluxe room with private bathroom and a spectacular view of the mountainside. The food was delicious and the staff was pleasant and helpful. Would definitely recommend to anyone. Thank you Sanafe Lodge!
