We had a very pleasant stay at Nutshuts at the end of November and would stay here again. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the food is good and it is very well located. The view at the river is awesome, especially in the morning, and its central location at Bohol makes it a perfect starting point for sightseeing around the island. We had rented motor bikes in Panglao, so we arrived by bike. Although it’s a little ‘adventurous’, you can ride your bike from the main road all the way to the top of the stairs and park it there. Half way down the stairs is the restaurant, and downstairs along the river are the huts.

We had a hut with a new bathroom (shower and toilet) which was simple but did the job just fine. After the earthquake of 15 October 2013, some bathrooms where damaged because the heavy concrete floor of the bathroom had fallen down (the huts are on stilts). These where being refitted with a new ‘earthquake proof’ lighter bathroom.

Nutshuts had not much other damage from the earthquake (or from typhoon Hayian, which was further north). In contrast to most other places, they even had normal electricity when we were there (not from a humming generator), so during the night you could hear all the nocturnal animals singing and beeping in the trees around you. However, you do want to bring a flashlight to find your way to your hut in the evening, as the path is quite uneven.

From Nutshuts we visited the Chocolate hills and the Tarsier sanctuary. Danao adventure park was closed when we were on Bohol, but is also in range. When you drive from Tagbilaran to Loboc, take into account that the bridge in Loboc is closed. To cross the Loboc river with a car or motor bike, you have to go to the bridge at the coastal road. In Loboc there is only a bridge for pedestrians.

Amazing place right by the river, you can swim across and walk down a little path to a beautiful waterfall. The cafe is great and if there is an important footie match on they usually try to accommodate! Huts are basic but comfy and you really feel like you are outdoors. Great place that also rents mopeds. 100% recommended.

we visited nuts huts post-earthquake, which meant that a few huts were being rebuilt - and there was no power! Bringing a flashlight is advisable. You will enjoy the darkness and sounds of the jungle at night. The only downside is that the short hike and stairs are not that practical if you have a suitcase rather than a backpack, but you can rent a boat to take you there as well.

The food prepared is top-notch, a massage can be arranged, and the helpful staff can help you plan your excursions.

Myself and a friend stayed here a couple days after the earthquake and we were happy to find it still open. Some of their accommodation was affected however repairs are underway so as always it's a good idea to call up ahead for a booking (though we just showed up).

We found it to be a good central location to adventure from as we wanted to explore some of the southeast of Bohol. There was lots of things to do around and the food was great value and tasty as well!

Spent 2 nights here. Place was really deep in the trail so whoever going here must be fit. Literally.you have to walk on different terrains plus up and downhill and when you thought you reach you have to take this long flights of stairs down to this cosy hideout. It was worth it for me as the restaurant/lounge area is on a deck amongst the rainforest trees. Anytime you eat there you can enjoy the sound, smell and scenery of nature. Can laze by the hammocks and totally relax by the nature. Was there in 2011. Nice local serving you and always ready to help you. Another cool thing they put up your country drawn on CDs by guest that comes from whichever country so you feel really welcome that they acknowledge you. It's more for backpackers so don't expect anything luxury. If you don't mind the most basic toilet, bed and electricity shut down then you definitely can try this place. Cheers!

I would like to use this platform to inform travelers about the current situation in Bohol and in Nuts Huts after the earthquake on 15 Oct, which you may have heard about in the news.
Although the impact of the earthquake (7.2 on the Richter scale) has been quite serious in parts of Bohol, and in Nuts Huts, life is returning more or less back to normal through serious efforts of local communities and Nuts Huts is no different in this respect.
Nuts Huts is still open for business and we can accommodate 15 guests comfortably at the moment and the restaurant offers 100 % of the menu. We are reconstructing the rooms that were damaged by the quake and should be able to be 75 % operational by mid November.
I thought I should inform prospective travelers to Bohol and Nuts Huts as often the lack of information may lead to steering clear of a post-quake area, but in this case, although the memory of the quake is still strong, we have bounced back in a way we did not think was possible one week ago.

Nuts Huts is a collection of rustic bamboo huts set in a beautiful location on the banks of the Loboc river. Unfortunately the owners can't seem to make their mind up about who they want to attract. In the guidebook Nuts Huts is described as a budget backpacker spot, which the accommodation lived up to, but the prices definitely didn't. Their cheapest hut cost 800P a night and included a filthy bathroom, holes in the walls and roof, a mosquito net with huge holes in, grubby bedsheets and blood-stained towels. It's also the sort of 'backpacker spot' that continually pesters you to pay for expensive activities. The expat owners are basically trying to charge European prices for below-filipino standards. It's a shame because the location is amazing (although really inconvenient). If you were planning to stay at Nuts Huts to visit the Chocolate Hills/Tarsier Sanctuary you'd be better of staying in Tagbilaran (Nisa Travelers Inn is good) and renting a motorbike for the day.

This place is a must-do when you’re in the neighbourhood. The huts are build alongside the Loboc river on an open place in the jungle. It is however quite an adventure to get there. From the highway it is a short 20 minutes walk, including “some” steps to cover the final height meters. As we have done this the first time in a pitch black night around 7.30 pm after heavy rainfall will probably have added to the adventurous touch…
The place itself is nicely located to explore the island. A motorbike can be rented from one of the locals down the road if you want. The owners can help you out with everything you need to know, they are really helpful in guiding you through the options to explore the area.

They also rent mountainbikes at 400 php/day. Also this is not cheap (as a motorbike can be rented for around 500 php), but the bikes are very well maintained and in good condition. Chris cycles himself and it shows. Renting a MTB is a must do when staying there. Renting a canoo to cruise along the Loboc river costs 200 php/h, which seems a bit expensive to me.

The heart of the place is the big lounge area that houses the bar/restaurant. The food and drinks are very nice and the menu is extensive. Food and drinks are far from expensive and really good. If you re on a thight budget, you can still eat very well.

Be prepared to digest some steps and height meters while you’re there, you are in a forest on a hill. But don’t let this scare you off, every step is worth it.

Room Tip: Endulge yourself: take one of the most luxurious rooms (they are closer to the bar)
