Had the tuna steak and it was delicious. Good service in a venue that has a basic but rustic feel. It now operates under a new name

They host live music at least three nights a week, the food is great and it's location right on the beach with cosy wooden atmosphere make it a nice place to hang out.

The location is a bit off from the Aplaya but the tricycle ride is worth it. Sea Slugs offers dinner buffet for just Php 300/person and you won't regret eating there. The selection on the buffet is very good (of course we didn't expect too much since it is just budget buffet) but the highlight of the restaurant is the... More

This place has a new name, but is still in the same spot. The waitress didn't know what some of the drinks were. They were also out of quite a bit of the food. The setting is nice. Just check to see if they have the food you'd like before you place drink etc. orders.

We found it hard, until we were directed to the seaside and we walked.the stretch and asked around. Seaslugs is now known as Seaside. Just accross the Squidos in the town proper there is... More

We have stayed at this place and the rooms are great. Clean and comfortable, it's nice quiet there so we sleep well. The service is outstanding. The restaurant is upstairs and the food is great as we know from them before. On Wednesday and Saturday they have buffet dinner really good. Thanks grace and Ray
