The hotel staff were helpful. Food was not bad. The beach front is alright, not much to see with a snorkel underwater though. One can lounge in hammocks tied to two coconut trees by the beach. There's a warning sign though to be careful of falling coconuts. We stayed at the Angel 2 budget fan room at P800 per night. It was small but clean and adequate. The complimentary coconut-based shampoo and conditioner are great. The smoked glass windows have small holes in between though making it challenging to dress up privately. Worst part was we heard the sound of a squeeking mouse in the middle of the night while we were asleep. It woke us up and scared my wife off. She thought the mouse might have climbed up the bed and went inside the mosquito net. Upon checking, it seems the sound came from either inside the wooden walls or ceiling or the floor. Other than that, it was a pleasant and affordable stay. It is only 10-15 minutes from the Siquijor pier. We arranged for pickup with a tricycle driver which gave us a tricycle tour of the island, since the place is a 5 minute walk from the main road.
However, we were thinking it might be better to stay in a resort along San Juan beach near the Tulapos Marine Sanctuary, so that one can at least see corals and fish snorkelling underwater, but we were told by our tricycle driver that the waves are too strong, also the main bridge to the area was unde repair, and it is about 30 minutes from the Siquijor pier.
