Perhaps I went with too high of expectations because there was only one really bad review of this place given during a typhoon (how could anyone expect good anything during a typhoon?) Here is my assessment: Pros: -- airport/seaport pick up and drop off for free. Very nice service and on time. -- quiet location -- large clean rooms --... More

After reading several reviews, we decided to book our stay at Vest Pension House. So here goes my review: 1. EXCELLENT SERVICE * we were picked... More

I was there before, during and after the earthquake of October 2013. You could find my rave review from that year if you want. Stayed at the Vest for a few days again in January 2015. The same manager and much of the same staff are still there, which is good. I'm still calling it an excellent value, reasonably quiet... More

So a small typhoon stranded us on Bohol and cancelled our ferry. To lay over somewhere, we got a good deal to stay at Vest Pension for a night and took it. So the positives were good price and the night porter who was very helpful and understanding and went the extra mile to try deal with our situation. Thanks... More

We booked via Agoda £13 including breakfast for 2. I emailed them via their website to get their free airport pickup service and they responded promptly. We were picked up at Tagbilaran promptly and taken by their own minibus to Vest. We were given a larger double room (R301) with AC and TV, wifi too. Room was clean and had... More

airport/seaport transfers, breakfast included, and very accommodating staff. Great value for money. I was a bit disappointed with the fact that they advertised bathrobes when if fact it was not. Nevertheless it is a wonderful place.

I stayed at Vest Pension House for 5 nights as a base to explore the island before moving to a resort on Panglao island. The hotel ticked all the boxes and for the money was the best hotel I stayed in since arriving in the Philippines. Although, the hotel is located off the main road on a bumpy side road... More

Stayed here only one night on a last minute detour through Bohol. The place is clean and nice. It being the low season there weren't many travelers staying there so it was also very quiet. I stayed in a deluxe single bed room and while I wasn't dazzled, I was content with it. The bathroom was very clean, which should... More
