Stumbled upon 'The Bruce' by chance as trusted the judgement of our tricycle driver from the port. Great place with a lovely well-cared for garden right on a nice beach. We opted for one of the hotel style rooms at the side and we were delighted with the size and cleanliness of the room. The staff were lovely and worked... More

We stumbled upon this small resort by accident, and so glad we did! We had a private cottage on the beach side, no aircon but fan, but that didn't matter really. You're right at the beach where the wind is always there to cool you down. Small kitchen, big bathroom. But it all comes down to the view, it's simply... More

I spent a month living in a house of Silvia's and my assessment is very positive. In the house I've had a king-sized bed, spacious bathroom, kitchen and terrace. Workers are lovely and will do everything possible to help you. It has a bar - restaurant and i recommend trying the homemade soup. Fantastic communal terrace and acceptable wifi. It... More

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
