Great place to stay. I have planned to spend only 2-3 days on the island and extended to a week in the end, mainly because of the hospitality and great atmosphere at Aabana's. Mike is the good-hearted soul of the place and puts in a great effort to make you feel as comfortable and welcome as possible.

I spent a week here in the Bamboo Guestroom and was quite happy with it! The price was affordable and I had my own bathroom with a shower which was a huge plus. The bed was also a queen which was another bonus. The staff was also very sweet and helpful. I think it is probably quite common there but... More

My friend was staying here for some time and I spent a lot of time hanging out there in his room with him, that was until the owner Mike came over and said I'm not even allowed to go inside the room or use the bathroom. We were also kitesurfing there one day and we had launched our kites on... More

Amazing place, Mike & Diose really take care of you and their staff is very friendly. We stayed in a large very comfortable bungalow, Casa Viva that had good AC, good bathroom and a large porch - excellent value. We were lucky to get one of Diose's cooked Philippino meals one evening - best food we had during our 3... More

Mike and Dioses Beach Cottages are located in a quiet area directly at the beach. The Cottages are cosy, very clean and simple. The Hosts Mike and Diose are extremely nice and friendly people. They help you with whatever problem or question you might have. A special accomomdation, it feels like staying with a big family.

A good friend of mine suggested Mike & Diose's beach cottage. I am so glad that I booked my 4 days and 3 nights solo trip. The resort staff were very nice and courteous. The owner was very hands on and looked after the welfare of the guests. He actually remembers all the names of the guest :) I'll definitely... More

We stayed at the cheapest room at Mike and Diose (550 php) including breakfast. It was a fan room and worth the money. The staff was friendly and there was nothing to complain about. The beach outside hotel was very nice!
