It's pricy for 2,500 pesos. AC was old and making noise, it did not make the room cool. Stains were evident in the toilet bowl. No toilettries given. Restaurant is not present, though they serve breakfast. On a lighter note, the place is accessible to the surfing area, if you want to take a stroll down the beach. The resort... More

GOOD + Big airconditioned rooms can shelter you from the midday heat as you wait for the waves + The beach viewing decks are nice + Secured belongings because of the locks BAD - The shower controls are on the brink of collapsing (they're old!) - The toilets, although smelling clean, are tinged with yellow stains (old!) - The aircon...

The hotel is basic, but clean. Insects were at a minimum. The resort staff were all very friendly and helpful. Rona (the waitress cum chef, gave us a Tourist Map) and another lady from the administration told us about nearby pottery-making classes. We super enjoyed learning how to make clay pots! We also had fun surfing the gentle waves just... More

This place is highly recommended for those who seek to enjoy a peaceful beach getaway. We stayed at the president suite. The room was nice. The balcony was perfect for having coffee while watching the sunset. Surf area is just a couple of minutes away from the resort. The food is a little pricey but if you like to have... More

The resort is located in a quiet part of Urbiztondo beach making it an ideal location for travellers looking to surf as well as get some peace and quiet. The main beach is just minutes away should you wish to get surf lessons from the many surf shops along the beach. The rooms were quite spacious complete with a kitchenette... More

Best Sunset View right in your own veranda. Less crowd, own beach front and very accomodating and very nice staff. Close to every one and very accessible not only to the beach but also in the road. Close to everything around the area. Experience walking down the beach.

This hotel is accomadating, and very near to the surfing islands. The staff are amongst some of the friendliest I have ever met. It is unfortunate that there restaraunt is kind of run down and only serves breakfast. It would be really nice if the hotel rented motorcycles as well. There is certainly a market for that.

Surfmaid is overlooking the surfing area. The hotel has a direct access to the beach which is very convenient to the guest and if u have a surfboard. The hotel is also near restaurants and places where you can relax. They have a very friendly staff too!

I stayed here 2 nights. It was great. I arrived at 11:00 and they allowed me to check in early. I was able to negotiate a cheaper price for a room with a balcony because they price matched. The staff were friendly and helpful. The only thing was my shower leaked quite badly and the restaurant was closed for 'renovations'... More

Nice place for visit- in this off season, they upgraded our room from VIP to VIP w/ balcony, without additional charge. People at reception are pleasant to be with. Wanna visit again when I want to surf at La union~
