We stayed in West Pen around march 2011. We decided to stay here once we found out Gota village was fully booked for the taping of the series Survivor. It is a small resort, With clean rooms and toilets. It is important to me that the rooms are not made of native materials like nipa or wood, as I find that these attract more insects. It looks like it does in the pictures, and we had a good night's sleep. The room itself is small, good enough for two single or double beds and a regular bathroom. Certainly not comparable to staying in a hotel, but good enough considering. the small town of Caramoan.
The food is home cooked, simple fare yet filling, with big servings. I have food allergies and I
informed them of this beforehand. They modified our meals to suit my needs. The transfers to
and and from the port as well as the arranged island hopping trip went smoothly. We requested
for late check out on our last day there and that went smoothly too. You can see props from
Survivor in the resort, but other than that there isn't much to do except go island hopping.
Island hopping takes an entire day, it takes 30 mins to an hour to get from one island to another. This means a lot of travel time on the boat, and the waves while traveling are high. You WILL get
drenched in the boat. Please bring a waterproof bag or put your things inside zip lock plastic bags before The trip and if you're bringing sunglasses better bring plastic ones. We really got wet
while on the boat and my friend's bag, wallet, and digital camera got drenched. He had to buy a
new one when we got back.
Overall it was a good stay. We were happy with West Pen and would recommend it.
