Franko and Jorinda and the staff are great. He is 73 and Italian and warms up as you get to know him. His English is minimal and his charming 26 year old Philippino partner Jorinda translates everything into Italian. Everything here is much better than you usually find in the Philippines. The bathroom is spacious and super clean and has... More

Seventy three year-old Franco is a gracious and attentive host, and his staff are friendly, welcoming, and helpful. You immediately are made to feel at home in this little Italian oasis in the Visayas. The view is beautiful... More

Our two families stayed at Il Sogno for two nights between Christmas and New Years and we all had a fantastic time. Franco brings an authentic Italian experience to his guests -- we enjoyed seafood risotto one night and hand-made gnocchi the next! He also invited us for Italian wine and coffee. The guesthouse is immaculately clean and we enjoyed... More

What a great little find. We spent two nights here. Incredibly clean and neat 4 bedroom house, with kitchen and outdoor patio. Very peaceful and serene. Only a few minutes walk to where you can snorkel with the sardines. Other fantastic snorkeling right out front (saw sea turtles within minutes). But the real selling point of his place is Franco,...

We stayed at Franco's for about a week in march 2015. The original plan was to stay for 3 days but we ended up staying for a week. Franco's place is extremely clean, the staff extremely helpful/ friendly and Franco himself catered to our every needs. The room we stayed in looks out to a beautifully manicured garden and beyond...

My boyfriend and I planned to stay for three days, we quickly changed our plans and ended up staying two weeks. Instead of traveling around we decided to take advantage of the beach house and relax! A beautiful home with lots of perks! Excellent service with a homey touch. We had almost all our dinners prepared by owner Franco and... More
