Well since we are talking about Banaue the Sanafe lodge is probably the most luxurious stay possible. Relatively clean, good food and a wonderful view is what you can expect when staying here. Always keep in mind that it's all relative. We did have a cockroach in the bathroom and dogs do bark all night, but hey it's all part... More

I really enjoyed staying at Sanafe Lodge. It was no luxury as such, but the rooms were cleand and nice. But the best was the amazing staff that made you really feel at home. I highly recommend this place!

Great rooms, food, people, tours. No complaints. Will come back. Worth the trek to Banaue. Their tours are more expensive than others, and for many terraces you don't even need a guide, but we felt it was worth the attention they paid to us. They picked us up where the bus from Manila dropped us off just outside of town... More

Sanafe is set a little apart from the other downtown lodges. Still on Main Street, but closer to the Town Hall. Owner very much present, supervising everything. Strict about prohibiting outside tour guides pestering guests. You are welcome here if you are a guest of the restaurant, bar, or hotel, but touts and sales people are not. The result is... More

Very nice place with great view and clean rooms. Great food and good staff. Located in the center of the village. The resturant has a long bar with a view of the terreces. Good value for your money. Have simple rooms & delux with view. Hot water.

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.

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
