With fully-booked General Luna resorts for the holidays, we were led to this quaint, eclectic, bohemian-inspired haven at Pacifico. Travelers can't miss the unique facade of the Jafe Resort- a brain-child of its equally fascinating owner, Jack. Each room has its own story to tell, with Jack's vintage collection central to a theme he selected. We were booked at a...

I don't really want to leave and will surely return. Those people are phantastic. Beautiful garden, nice beach. Rooms are clean. They made this place a museum where they show collections of colorful somethings from somewhere. I especially enjoyed the silence compared to General Luna. In GL is traffic like on the highway, crappy noise, everyone constantly wants money. You...

We had lunch here twice during our stay in Pacifico. The place was very tastefully decorated with a lot of interesting knick knacks from around the world. Food was great, especially the sizzling fish and kinilaw (ask for them to make it spicy if you like spicy food). Service was wonderful. Our food came out in less than 10 minutes,...

These people are crazy. They collected things from everywhere in the world. The place is owned by Jack, an American and Ferelyn, a Filipina. Hence the name. The rooms are nice and clean, the staff is ok. The room rates are too low. Across the street there's a motorcycle rental. The hotel has direct access to beach. The place is...

If you wanna find the best place for living near of the ocean, feeling like at home or for surf - you will find it right here. It's a very welcoming place with a good stuff and very good and funny owner. You can find here a bungalow or room and restaurant with tasty food and good prices.
