Squares Beachside Apartments
Reviewed July 12, 2014

I stayed at Squares Apartments for about 5 months in 2013. The beach being so close, 1 minute walk, made it so nice. The views every day, over the water.. Rose was an excellent host, and always very helpful. I should never have left...

Room Tip: All rooms face the beach, there are two levels only

Family stayed for 3D/2N. Booked 3rooms thru agoda, surprised that it costs half of the hotels' prices
Pros:
-very nice rooms, spacious and clean and have Great view of the sea and garden. Safe abd secured accommodation, didn't have worries of losing stuffs
-Very helpful and friendly staffs esp. Ka-Willie. We were treated like family
-Quite an adventure looking for the place, but really exciting! Awesome welcoming view of the sea!
-proximity to public market, Muelle port, souvenir shops
-Quiet, relaxing, peaceful place to spend your vacation, area is not crowded unlike the popular beaches in PG (white beach and sabang), it's as if you have rented the whole place!
-Offers tours and snorkeling activities
-beach is nice, a little rocky on the shoreline but soft abd fine sand after, waves were half a meter tall! Enjoyed night swimming under the moonlight, ka-Willie provided us life jackets for safety.
Walk a little farther to the right and you will find a lagoon. On the other side is a rocky beach with crystal clear waters!
-recreational activities such as billiards, jigsaw puzzles, board games, etc. You may also find a book of your interest
-Hammock. Love the hammock.

Cons:
-If you're staying on the upper floor taking a shower might take to ling since water pressure is low and heaters dont usually work in such case (but why bath with hot water during summer?) suggest if they could provide a pail and dipper (more convenient) no problem with first floor water supply tho. :)

Tips:
-bring your own toiletries!
-ask for a corner room (if possible), this has washer and dryer, and stove, plus exclusive balcony.
-wear swim shoes if you plan swimming in the rocky side near the lagoon to protect your feet from injuries
-Interact with the locals!!!
-ENJOY! HAVE FUN!

Overall: had a great stay, and would recommend staying here be it with family, friends, even couples would surely love the place

Will stay longer next time!

Spent Thanksgiving with family. Stayed for 3 days and 2 nights. This is a very, very nice place with well-maintained rooms. Ms. Rose showed hospitality at its best. If you want to relax and just enjoy nature this is the right place. :)

Squares cafe was a great place for relaxation! It's outside of crazy nightlife of PG and Sabang and offers a pristine view of the sea. The rooms are all brand new, very spacious, and really have anything you could ask for. They have a nice billiards table in the common area and many books on hand as well. It felt as if we were staying with family or a close friend. I met the owner and his family and they were all very friendly and accommodating. I even shot a few games of pool with the owners son and I won each time :) Mahal ko ang Squares Cafe!

Staying in squares cafe apartment in small tabinay/puerto gelera/Philippines is my best holiday to date. The accommodation is absolutely amazing with all the apartments being brand new and furnished with everything you needed tv/cooker/fridge freezer/air con. The garden area is stunning thanks to the staff looking after it every day and laying out sun chairs facing the sea that is only meters away from the accommodation. There's also a American size pool table that's free to play on for the guest that i played on every nite with a cold beer!! The best part for me was at night sitting on the balcony facing the sea just relaxing!! Just would like to say a massive thank you to the owners and staff for giving me the best holiday ever

Room Tip: If you can afford it go for the biggest room

great place to be close to the sea and really nice well maintained rooms clean and with a great area to hang out with friends for a game of billiard or just a few beers in the evenings, a bit away from puerto so not noisy in the evenings either
