We stayed here one night. First, for the location, this is FAR from Codon Port (45 mins to an hour I guess?) but relatively near to Virac Airport (20 mins, tops). Just so you know how far it was, we paid P700 for a tricycle from the port to the inn, and then P100 from the inn to the airport.... More

Spent two nights in this Inn and i must say it's clean, affordable, big rest room (for room 5), central to most places you'd like to get to when in Virac Catanduanes. They have decent wifi, and their light breakfast of native rice cakes is good! Aja, Karlo "long", and tita Fely made us feel very welcome. Their contacts around... More

Monte Karlo is great for short stays to visit Maribina falls and to explore the various beaches in the south and the southwest of the island. It may be convenient moving to Puraran beach for a couple of nights if you plan on taking surfing lessons more than once or practising for longer periods. If not, Monte Karlo is a... More

Me and my friend stayed at this tourist inn last April 9-13, 2012. It's located in San Vicente, Virac (about 5 minutes from the poblacion by tricyle, which costs only 5 pesos per head). It faces the sea and gives you a good view of Mayon Volcano's silhouette on a clear day. The cost of accommodation is really within everybody's... More

Great food and service. They have average sized rooms but are comfy, its budget friendly too. If your planning to explore Caramoan Islands, Puraran Island, monte karlo inn is the nicest and safest place to stay.

Nice room "family" with veranda with ocean view. Not luxury but for $34/night it would be hard to beat. Room service is all home cooking Pinoy flare and quite good. Without a doubt we will be back.
