“Viva la playa! Caramoan at its best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2009

Ome (the owner of La Playa) made us feel extremely welcome in our air conditioned wooden huts by the beach.

This is one of the few beach-front properties in Caramoan and staying here will save you the 30 minute journey from Centro (the township) to the port where the boats leave for island hopping.

Facilities are basic (shared bathrooms)... but Ome is fantastic! From drinking water, to a picnic lunch when island hopping, to a boat and boatman, everything is available from the hotel (at pretty reasonable prices).

I didn't really want to write this review, however, as Caramoan is probably one of the most beautiful places that I have ever been to... with so many pristine islands to choose from (indeed, the TV show Survivor is filmed there). So I feel a bit sad letting the world know about it :-) It was fun being the only non-Filipinos there for 3 days!
