We stayed for two nights at Green Verde in one of their beach huts with shared bathroom; we paid 800 Peso a night.
The room was very basic with a double bed, fan, table and mirror; we shared a shower room and toilet with one other beach hut, this was clean and a better option to a private bathroom as it was actually nicer and cheaper at 1200 Peso per night for double with private bathroom.
At Green Verde there was the added advantage of electricity throughout the night until 6am which is ideal as this kept us cool as we could use the fan, although the implications of having overnight electricity means having to listen to a generator all night but this applies to any beach hut accommodation in Sabang so cannot be seen as a negative specifically for Green Verde alone, just remember to take ear plugs if you are a light sleeper.
We ate in the restaurant on a number of occasions for both breakfast and dinner. The staff, specifically Gerald and Junil were excellent and the food was good value for money and really tasty, probably the best from what was offered by the beach hut resorts in Sabang. We had no interest in eating in the two ‘western’ resorts, I would imagine they were far superior considering the prices and facilities but this isn’t what we went travelling for.
The menu was extensive and we didn’t experience any problems with availability of the dishes the only downside to the restaurant was their lack of liquor license so we could not have a beer with our dinner. The shrimps were huge and the banana pancake was delicious. We had the option of adding our food and drinks to our room so we could pay at the end of our stay but we opted to pay as we went. They also offered a laundry service for 60 pesos per kilo, this was a next day service.
Francis can arrange a boat from Sabang to Port Barton for 1200 pesos per person, this is the standard price for this trip. He can also arrange the underground river trip for the same cost however I would recommend organising this yourself as we did this for 650 pesos per person.
Go to the port to register for a following day trip, they will tell you what times are available. The underground river costs 250 pesos per person, the ferry boat which takes you to the river is 1600 pesos approximately for the boat which will take 8 people, you just need to group together with other tourist waiting at the port and split the cost between you, we shared 4 in a boat so our trip cost 650 pesos per person in total.
If you are used to 3+ star accommodation then Green Verde is probably not for you but if you are a traveller or want to experience
