Booked here for one night due to other resort being full. The day before I was shown a room across the pool which looked basic, but decent. Upon arrival the room was suddenly 'booked' and got a room across the road. This one was terrible, bathroom almost fell apart, shower curtain in front of the windows and the wall probably... More

We contacted them by text message one day before arrival to arrange booking and were slightly sceptical as to whether we would have a room when we arrived. But, they knew who we were the second we walked through the door and gave us a room. Standard basic room, double bed and a fan with a bathroom with shower. The... More

We stayed at this place due to a bit of a miscommunication between my gf and I - she accidentally checked in while I was having a look at some other local accommodation.. The place is certainly one of the cheapest in the area (800 pesos), apart from some horrible fleapits down by the shore. The outside looks very inviting,... More

The place was fine but nothing special. My main complaint was that there were a LOT of roosters in the area and they make a lot of noise all night long. I sleep with ear plugs but they were not enough to block out the noise. Also, they have a water tank that runs out of water frequently. I came... More

Aida, Mary-Grace and the people at Sunshine are very welcoming. They will make sure you're comfortable and treat you like family. I was here for Christmas and New Year's and Aida and family lovingly made us all a wonderful dinner! Being away from home during such festive periods, that dinner made the night special. The rooms are really basic (Ceiling... More

the resort is managed by family I guess and it has homey feel. rooms have fan and is clean. also it has lovely decorations. the tiles on the swimming pool are not clean. that's my only complain, but other guests were using it and seem not disturbed about it anyways.

I enjoyed my 5 night stay at the Sunshine Pension House, and would definitely go back. It is only my opinion, but I found Aida a little more like the lady of the manor, rather than a good hotelier, but that did not in any way detract from my stay at the Sunshine Pension House, and I found the rest...

Located at the second line but very close to sea. Staff, young philippino girls, probably family, very friendly. No annoying customers. Maybe I'm lucky. Rooms are basic. Bed are clean, bed sheets fresh. Hot shower. Price is fit the quality. If you not ready to pay for pricy hotel that place is ok.

Right from the beginning on arrival Aida and her family were very friendly and welcoming, making us feel at home! I stayed there in total for 6 weeks, so we were a bit of a different group compared to the usual tourists, but the overal care and attention Aida gave to us was no different to the other guests and...
