Sebay Surf Central is right off the highway. It has a accommodations for all types of groups. Be it a couples room, a family room or a big group "barkada" room. The place itself is pretty clean and has ample parking spaces. They also have a guard by the parking lot which is a plus. Sebay also has a restaurant... More

The best thing about staying in Sebay is its location. It is right in front of the surfing action and just beside the main highway. Also right at the beachfront are the surf rental huts where you could get a personal surfing instructor. Rooms are reasonably priced, though the rooms are on the basic side. The shower is not working... More

The room smells like a public restroom and it really stinks. I had to keep myself from gagging due to the smell. The staff are rude and unhelpful. The food is terrible and not worth the prices. If given the chance, I would not want to check in here again.

horrible food, rooms are dirty and tiny. Staff extremely unhelpful and quite rude, loud and woeful karaoke music keeping you up all night. Literally the worst meal I've had in the Philippines from the restaurant here. AVOID.

I was surprised when I stepped in my room. 2000peso/night (about 50$) for a really tiny, basic room with 1 single bed (they said the room was for 2 ppl but honestly I have no idea how 2 ppl can actually sleep on that bed). I wanted to stay at San Juan surf school but they were fully booked, so... More

We paid 2000 for overnight (November). What we got was one bedroom with a separate bed. My sister and I thought that the 2k was enough for us. We had a functioning aircon, a table, and a TV. It was okay. We got what we paid for. The only comment that I had -- really -- was we were visited... More

I had an injury that day so we dont have a choice but to check in here. 1900/day is not worth it! The bathroom is filthy! Bedsheet and towels looks awful.the bathroom drainage is broken.You have to ask for... More

Rooms were crappy. No clothes hanger, no door mat, there's no place to wash (feet) before you enter the rooms. TV sets and rack were full of dust. French fries took us 20 mins and two bottles of beer before being served. Won't ever recommend this place/,

Good to know that this is indeed a beachfront hotel. The room was ok. The AC was a bit weak but they had foresight, they added another fan to distro the cold air. The bathroom mirror was broken. The (almost but not quite) wifi signal is very poor in our room. I would have rated this higher if only my... More
