After leaving our horrid first nights accommodation we stumbled across this great place as we walked along the beach. We opted for the more expensive cottage, plenty of room, light, airy and the first hot shower I had in 10 days!!! Service is excellent, friendly and polite. All the food we had (breakfast and dinner) were great and served quickly... More

When we arrived my friend and I were sick and the staff were super nice and friendly and went out of their way to help us. It's a beautiful place with nice garden right on the sand. The bungalows were nice the other rooms not great and basic but fine. Good restaurant and beach side bar. Nicest to chill in... More

I was really looking forward to my return trip to this place, BUT, the English owner is no longer here, and it shows. Once the overseas owner is away, and a Pinay is running this place all by herself, it has become terrible. The staff are generally rude and don't give care, the meals in the restaurant are awful, the... More

I have travelled extensively throughout Asia for the last 25 years. I have been on over 20 trips, this hotel has by far the worst service I have ever encounted. Here is a list of its problems in no particular order. 1. We stayed here for 7 days and the sheets were only changed once. 2. Towels only changed twice.... More

We visited summer homes twice while in sleepy Port Barton between trips to turtle bay. The resort is right in front of the beach, it has lovely gardens, and an on site beach bar which serves really good food. A lot of people from the beach came looking for accommodation once arriving as it really is the nicest looking (and... More

First off I paid 2,000 pesos for a beachfront bumgalow. It was not a beachfront....it was a garden view or even call it a sea view (just). The beach is about 15-20 metres away so to call it beach front is not correct. There are 900 peso rooms and 2,000 peso bungalows. This later price is on the high side... More

People is quite kind, they help us in everything we asked for. Room is ok for this price. Beach is just in front of the hotel. And drinks & food very very good. If i would come back I'll repeat for sure.

On getting off the bus after a long journey one of the locals took us to this place - we were worried about getting cash as none of the ATM's in the main town, which was 3 hours away, would give us any money. And, arriving in town, which is more like a village, we werent sure that we would... More
