We stayed in a beachfront cottage which was well equipped for self catering. Everything was comfortable and the decking was nice with a bench, coffee table and a dinner table. The location is about 10/15 minutes from the main town which is irrelevant as there is nothing there anyway. Opposite the Bruce is a nice restaurant named Dagsa which had... More

It was a good thing we did not experience any of the party noise experienced by some of the other reviewers of this place as we stayed in The Bruce on a weekday. We appreciated that their bungalows had its own kitchen which allowed us to cook our own food. Except for some ants in the kitchen and the limited... More

The Bungalows are well equipped for the independent couple or group that desire to do their own cooking. Water and gas is included in the rate. Unfortunately the Bungalows are very close together, and some of them have a view directly onto a pavilion popular among larger groups. The place also caters to large, rowdy groups of city Pinoys that... More

Lovely bungalows on the beach with fridge, kitchenette, kitchen utensils and free water tank. There is a pleasant front porch with table, chairs and a little couch. Hammocks and canoes are available. It feels like your little home on Siquijor. The staff is very friendly and helpful: they allowed us to check out later in the afternoon. No restaurant on... More

My first time on Siquijor Island became pleasant and memorable because of The Bruce which made me feel being at home while on vacation. Our cottage has a kitchen and a refrigerator. On our arrival, we went to the local market and loaded the fridge with food that we cooked during our stay in the resort. Our cottage faces the... More

Spent there 5 weeks in Feb / March 2014. Best vacations ever! I plan to go back again in 2015 for minimum 4 weeks. Very nice and clean rooms, friendly stuff and owners, very good food in the restaurant.

A very nice place that I would definitely go back to. My friends and I stayed at their tree house for 750 pesos a night. (Fan room and clean bathroom outside). They also have other rooms with private toilets that only cost about 1k to 1.5k. The hotel has wifi, a clean pool, hammocks, and kayaks you can borrow for... More

The Bruce is definitely one of the best places to stay in Siquijor. It's located at the edge of San Juan if you're coming from Siquijor city and the property sits right on the famous San Juan beach. We stayed in one of their bungalows/cottages for three nights. Upon walking in, we were amazed at the amenities. The cottage had... More

We were originally booked into a hotel in Larena but the tricycle driver insisted we check out the resort in San Juan first and we did not regret it at all. For the price of 1,200 pesos per night for a beach front house, it was really worth it! You've got yourself a kitchen where you can cook, a gallon... More
