the cottage in Hoyohoy is beautiful & private. During our stay, there's only "us" in the whole resort, feel liked we owned the whole place & very quiet (except when there's truck drive nearby) We tried some a-larte at the resort restaurant once we arrived after 2hrs flight, 2 hrs car & 1 hr ferry. We understand the speed is... More

One hour plane ride from Manila, two hour land trip by private car, one hour by ferry (roro), and a quick transfer to Hoyohoy. I felt at home upon entering the private road leading to the place. I love the following: Two storey cottage with private veranda Hammock at the ground floor Very clean rooms Great food served at the... More

The room was amazing, it was spacious, clean and had a lovely big balcony with a lovely view The staff were all lovely and friendly, we were invited to a welcome drinks... More

We just spent one night. The villa was very spacious and very clean. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. They were well trained, very friendly and they all made us feel very welcome. The food was fresh, very good and nicely presented.

Stayed here for 5 nights with a family of 5 (kids 9, 6 and 6). Booked directly with the resort and contact was smooth. They took half the total amount as deposit a month before arrival which is reasonable given the size of the resort. Transfer from Cebu International Airport to Hagnaya port (2 1/2 hours) was also arranged through... More

We were the only guests at their villas. Renovation was ongoing. Granted, they tried their best to cater to my vegetarian needs...and because it is not that convenient to get out of the resort, we had to have our meals here. The first villa the aircon broke down, but they switched us to another lower floor villa which was fine.... More

The owner was kind enough to upgrade my accommodation from a Kanaway Villa to the more spacious Habagat Villa. Overall, the experience was great. Things I loved about Hoyohoy are: 1. Beautiful landscaping and architecture 2. Villas have a good view of the ocean 3. Great service. The owner herself ensured that my stay went well. 4. The staff was... More

OVERVIEW This charming and quaint hotel stems from the loveliest lady boss. It's such a pleasure to know her --- that she grew up in Bantayan, strived for a living overseas, and is back to help the people living in Bantayan. When you are at the hotel, you can witness the happy and close-knit atmosphere amongst the staff and with... More

Hoyohoy means "windy" or "breezes" in the local language, I'm told. Located on the island of Bantayan off Cebu's northern tip this has fast become my dream destination: after all what's not to like when there is the beautiful sea, spectacular daily sunrise and great sunset colors, gourmet food (though best to ask for Chef Emily to prepare special dishes)...

There are only 9 villas in the entire resort so there will never be a huge throng. Decor looks like it is home rather than a hotel. Service is attentive. Comfortable but not luxurious. I would go back. Definitely.
