Staff and the owner are very helpful especially when our little girl got sick cause of the trip we've done and they've done everything to help us. Thank you guys, you made our trip a lot easier. Just a little advice, a fan on each room will work a treat ☺️👍🏽😄

Quaint but comfy place to stay after a long and winding drive. Altho located at the city center, she still provides a calm ambiance with good food and friendly staff complemented by the relaxed support of the hands-on owners. The only spoiler was the view of a presidentiable name painted on a locals home. Otherwise, our room had a great... More

We booked by Facebook message and email. The hotel is very centrally located. Our room was basic but clean. The bathroom needs updating but the hot shower worked well. We had a mountain view mainly for road noise reduction than for a view. The room windows had insect screens which obscured the view and were not that clean. There is... More

This is a quaint inn and reasonably cheap. The rooms are comfortable with lovely views of the rice terraces. The only downside is there are no electricity sockets in any of the rooms and you have to go downstairs to the cafe to charge ur devices. The cafe downstairs is quaint and lovely and has an outdoor area overlooking a... More

We had three nights here and would recommend this place. We had one of the rooms with a view. It was quite basic but the bed was comfortable and the shower was good with plenty of hot water. Maybe most people don't stay long enough to unpack but no wardrobe or cupboard so we couldn't. Sanafe lodge itself is quiet... More

Before heading to Batad we were led here for breakfast. We ordered a filipino breakfast and it came out pretty good. We had lunch here again after arriving from Batad and we had another tasty food. I recommend this place to everyone. The view of the town from the restaurant is quite nice too.

Came here on an evening when there was a power cut in the town. They had their own generator so continued to cook which was a real bonus as everywhere else had shut. However they were clearly struggling to get food out, we both had the chicken curry. It was at best average with not a lot of flavour, even... More

Sanafe Lodge... this place was the first place we stayed when we arrived up North of the Philippines to see the rice lands. The only word that comes to me about the place is WOWWWW. The view of the balcony you go for breakfast or just to take your coffee is just breath taking! I pinched myself several times to... More

We had a delightful time at Sanafe. It's our pick for Banaue for sure! The service was exceptional, they really do treat you as family. The food at the restaurant was delicious!!! Great quality and great view! The best part of Sanafe was the time we spent with our guides Renson and Regina. Amazing guides. Very kind and generous with... More

We really enjoyed our stay at your lodge! It had wonderful coffee and food (try the local red rice!) at the restaurant, comfy bed after a long bus ride from Manila, beautiful views and helpful nice staff. Would definitely stay again and recommend to everyone.
