Beautiful decorated outside area with an amazing view over town, Serving deliscious local meals and beers. Skip the wine unless you buy a bottle. Good wifi connection. The place looked closed from the outside because of the fence.

I use to come here so often just to enjoy the quiet coffee moment, its so near the market and jeep area but you seem to be far away. Walls are thick enough to give that quiet. The view is great and the resto common area is why i like this place. Done very well. Super nice staff! I miss... More

We sought out Sanafe based on a Lonely planet recommendation. We arrived early 'fresh' off the overnight bus from Manila and were able to check in and use our room despite it only being 6.30 in the morning. It's situated a short walk from where the bus drops you off, so it's easily accessible. Sanafe offered great value in the... More

Really enjoyed the stay here. For 800 pesos we got a room with a double bed and hot shower. Simple but worth it. The restaurant has nice food for cheap prices compared to many other places. 110 pesos for pancit, or if you are a fan of pasta, 150 for a bacon carbonara. Very friendly and helpful staff who allowed... More

This has to be one of the best places to stay when visiting Banaue. The view is breath taking the staff from the owner all the way down are always helpful and friendly it's like a home away from home. I would highly recommend staying at the Sanafe lodge. The rooms are comfortable and the entire place is always clean... More

We didn't book in advance so we slept in both the deluxe and the basic room. Both rooms perfect for the price. Food ok and good service! Our bus to manila departed in the night and we could store our luggage and get a shower. Owner is always laughing so good vibes and amazing view!!

We stayed here for 5 nights. We had booked in advance & were glad we had, as they seemed to be fully booked almost all the time. There are reasons for that: great service, location, food, spectacular views from dining area, helpful connections to guides & tours (Arnold & Joel), & wonderful hospitality offered by host Susan & her staff!

I stayed with a group of friends for 2 nights at Sanafe lodge and we occupied 3 rooms (two Deluxe and one Standard). The rooms provide the basic amenities, a quite comfortable bed, a working shower with somewhat warm water and a shower curtain (both not standard in that category in the Philippines). Deluxe rooms and standard rooms are not... More
