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

This very small resort has only a few rooms available, but if you are looking for a nice quiet place to stay this is for you. It's located a few kilometers West of San Jose, close to the Coral Cay Dive resort. They also have a nice swimming pool which is a big plus. Most of the units were rented... More
