It was our first time visiting the island of siquijor and after much searching and feedback from friends, we decided to stay at this resort. I was basically impressed with the amenities they offered for the price of the room, we stayed at their good for 4 bungalow that cost us 1800 per night, and like I said I was... More

We were recommended the Bruce by some people we met in Dauin and we're so glad they told us about it...great bungalow right on the water, comfortable beds, hot water, good internet in spots and kitchens if you want to do some light cooking or at least keep a bottle of wine cold. They have a pool which is great... More

Me and my friends (total of 5)) stayed here for 4 days. We booked the biggest non-air-conditioned beach front cottage. The cottage is very spacious, it is so big that it can accommodate at least 8 people inside at a time. The cottage has its own fridge, a kitchen (with complete set equipments for cooking (knifes, chopping board, pans, stove,... More

We stayed for 3 days and thumbs up to the place. It was clean, affordable and quiet. It has a pool (never tried it thou) and some cottages by the beach. One of the downside is that they don't have any staff for assistance. This is a total DIY resort.

Stayed here for a week to take a 'break from it all' and so glad I found 'The Sylvia'. Had planned to stay at 'Charisma' but the tricycle driver persuaded me to try this. Good value (Dorm 300, double 600, whole house 800!), clean, and very well run with ultra friendly staff, particularly 'April'. 24/7 electricity and the central restaurant/entertainment... More

We stayed for a week in January 2014. The cottages are basic, but cute and clean and most of them face the beach and the sunset. We were in cottage 2. Most of the other guests seemed like they were staying there for a long time. There are a few kayaks for use, as well as hammocks and chairs which... More

We stayed here for a week, during the off season in May. Helpful staff, and you're left pretty much to your own devices. It's clean and the bungalows spacious. Our room was cleaned every other day or so. Great that it's self catered, but the nearest decent food shops are in the main town, a 20 minute trike ride away.... More

We stayed at The Bruce after a particularly bad experience at the Coral Cay Resort. The bungalow was spotless and was great value for money. Decent location on the beach with good views of the sunset. The staff were friendly and the restaurant, Sylvias, was very good. All in all a very good stay.

We stayed at The Bruce in San Juan, Siquijor in February 2012. The bungalow was comfortable and extremely clean, right on the beach with a lovely view. The room was cleaned regularly and had a kitchen, fridge and fan. There is a shop outside for drinks, crisps etc and The Sylvia (same owner) is a short distance away with excellent... More
