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.

I was here long time ago in Hoyohoy Villas & Resort with my best friend and production team. Well, it was long time ago but let me just share with you my experience.

This resort is very small and homely. The staff were very friendly and really is very willing to help you. The food is great however some are not readily available but its good otherwise. The beach is not so nerve wrackingly amazing because they didnt have a shoreline. They are also situatuated near a small port so you better ready... More

Hoyohoy was a little expensive, but as we were there during the peak season, that was to be expected. Most of the other beaches were crowded, but the area in front of Hoyohoy was not. Much of the sand had eroded, so we had to jump into the water, and step up onto sand bags to climb back up onto... More
