“bargain tour packages”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2010

Minus their erratic electricity, our stay was more than what we even paid for. Best rate we got for an overnight package including accommodation on 2 family air conditioned rooms, full meals, shuttle from and to the port, as well as island hopping.

Although the food they served did not have the wow factor, the AC in our room was barely felt since the generators were not enough (I believe they do not have electricity on the area yet so all they have are generators), the boat used for island hopping was quite small, and the multi-cab that brought us from and to the port was the most uncomfortable 4x4 we ever experienced, the price we paid made everything manageable.

Ome (the owner of La Playa) made us feel extremely welcome in our air conditioned wooden huts by the beach.

This is one of the few beach-front properties in Caramoan and staying here will save you the 30 minute journey from Centro (the township) to the port where the boats leave for island hopping.

Facilities are basic (shared bathrooms)... but Ome is fantastic! From drinking water, to a picnic lunch when island hopping, to a boat and boatman, everything is available from the hotel (at pretty reasonable prices).

I didn't really want to write this review, however, as Caramoan is probably one of the most beautiful places that I have ever been to... with so many pristine islands to choose from (indeed, the TV show Survivor is filmed there). So I feel a bit sad letting the world know about it :-) It was fun being the only non-Filipinos there for 3 days!
