Since we were going to stay in Siquijor for five nights, we looked for a place with small kitchen and everyone recommended this place. Though no air conditioner in the cottage the breeze was cool enough during the night time to sleep, and if too hot outside, fans are enough to keep you cool. It was about 500 pesos/person/night (we... More

I was skeptical about the place since it offered so much at such a good price. But I was not disappointed. We got a non-aircon beachfront cottage. No need for aircon though as it was quite breezy. The cottage was quaint, it even had like an outdoor receiving area. It also had a kitchen! And we used it a lot... More

We got two cottage rooms beachfront overnight, and it can fit 4-5 pax per cottage room. The cottages have electricity, big stand fan, refrigerator, cookwares, utensils, and even free drinking water! The room was spacious and clean. CR was okay also. We cooked our dinner, and everything was there. We just bought ingredients in the city nearby market. There was... More

"So far so good" this is what I said to myself when we arrived at The Bruce. First thing, the accommodation was very cheap. We occupied the tree house which cost us 750php for one night only. It has the basic things you need (bed, fan, water, towel, tissue, instant coffee and a glass) but except for a toilet. We... More

We stayed at Bruce for 5 nights, 2 nights in a big cottage for four people and 3 nights in a smaller cottage for 2 people. Both beach front, what's amazing! :) The rooms were very clean and there was a big bed, even a kitchen and they provide you a drinking-water-tank. The staff is very friendly and helpful the... More

We stayed in one of the standard rooms which were excellent value. The rooms were in a block of four but styled like a beach cottage. The rooms were big and breezy. Although very hot the fan kept the room cool enough. The beds were huge and comfortable. The bathrooms clean. The shower pressure wasn't the best but that is... More

We stayed three nights in a lovely beach cottage, just a 5 steps away from the best beach on Siquijor. We really enjoyed our stay, in the spacious and very clean cottage, with comfy bed and an entire kitchen, including a drinking water tank. On top of that we could spend time on our lovely veranda with perfect view on... More

Stayed 3 nights in a lovely, clean and spacious Beach side cottage steps away from the Sand. Super relaxed place, great value at 1200PHP. They also have a great wiFi area where you can relax and treat your cell phone Addiction. Also, the Beach area is easily the nicest we saw on Siquijor. If we would have to find room... More

We spent 7 nights in a family cottage on the beach at the Bruce. At 1800 PHP a night, it was the best quality for value we could imagine. The cottage had a huge front deck overlooking a beautiful beach, it was very clean, the beds were comfortable and there was a small kitchen. Every evening, we had the most... More

The room price was quite affordable, 1000 pesos for a double room during Christmas holidays. The walls in the building were made out of stone but the walls between the rooms were some kind of wood so there was basically no soundproofing. We stayed only one night and it also happened to be some kind of New Year's party at... More
