The lodge is full of good vibes and very cosy. We spent there 3 nights and it was comfi and clean. The owner, Suzan, and her staff, were very helpful and ful time smiling. The view from the restaurant and room window was outstanding. The food is good. The only problem was no wi fi in our room.

Thank you for your kind review. We always aim to make your stay with us as comfortable as possible, maybe even memorable. Safe travels wherever you may go to next... Internet connection is very weak in Banaue so we just limit wifi in the lobby/reception.

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
