We got a fan room for P300 and it fit our budget since it was our last day in Caramoan and we'd be heading to CWC early the next day anyway. The room was at the end of the second floor hallway.

The room's door knob was not working (to say the least) so they gave us a padlock that served as the lock from outside. From inside you'd lock the room using a small latch, but for some reasons we did not worry about it.

The linens seemed as if they have not been touched for the longest time so we asked for new sheets lucky for us they obliged! We also were able to ask for hot water for our instant coffee.

The staff was helpful.

They have a veranda where you can enjoy coffee and cigarettes.

The inn is also near most "carinderia" where you can find home-cooked meals at a budget price. It is also within walking distance to the church.

Room Tip: If you get the budget accommodation (like the one we got), you'd use the common bathroom near the reception area.

Well rex tourist inn is a quite nice place to stay compare to other inn specially with regards to facility staff are very warm and very accommodating but the problem is if you don't know the pricing or how to bargain you will be surprise of how other guest can squeeze their price not to mention that this are foreigners and we as local are not getting that benefit it's kind a frustrating reality that's happenning in caramoan. But if we don't find it out how this foreigners can get huge discounts and we dont I can say that still it's affordable to stay there. But all in all Rex inn is the place you can visit and stay with regards to all the staff fantastic and superb service maybe that's the important thing though two thumbs up to all the staff of Rex inn

When visiting Caramoan, one has to stay in the town and from there, tour to the islands are arranged. My friedns and I stayed at Rex Tourist Inn- Caramoan Garden, which is an extension of the Rex Tourist Inn located in Centro, Caramoan Town. We were charged for a whole package which included 2 nights stay, full board plus 2 days of island hopping. Price was very reasonable. Food was good and staff were friendly.

Accommodation and amenities are basic. But in a place like that, all one needs is a clean toilet with good water pressure and bath and airconditioned room to be able to rest after a day of island hopping.

What makes it very nice is that there is a river at the back and the place where the meals are served is by the river. Scenery is very green, thus very relaxing. A motorized banca comes into the river and picks up guests right there to go island hopping. Since it is very lush, different kinds of birds can be seen around.

If you plan to go to Caramoan, Rex Caramoan Garden is the place.

If you're looking for simple, basic accommodations in Caramoan, this place meets this requirement. Clean sheets, and bathroom. Bed is thin but comfy. Its located in the 2nd floor of a building.

Rex Tourist Inn is centrally located in Centro, Caramoan Town near simple retaurants and an internet cafe. The rooms trigger claustrophobia as they do not have windows. There are opaque windows though that face only towards the corridor still giving a very enclosed feeling. There is wi-fi connectivity for Php 15 per hour but shuts off in the night when the owner/manager calls it a day. We requested the night clerk to open it but was informed that they do not have authority to do so.The rooms are located on the second and third floors with the ground floor operating as a hardware. After only a night here, i decided to move to a nearby hotel though more pricey yet more comfortable and brightly lit and better appointed.
