Just left after four nights here. I knew exactly what to expect having spent nights here previously. It certainly ain't 5 star. More like .5 star. Anyway, we got an air con room with good tele on the ground floor. Haggled the price down to 800 pesos. They will ask for as much as they think they can get. Had clean towels of poor quality which we used four the entire four nights. Not too sure if the linen was fresh, the wife could smell perfume on the pillow case. Used the same linen for the four nights. Bathroom was probably unacceptable to most foreigners. Smelly, dirty sink with no plug, flush toilet with bucket, no hot water and a general lack of maintenance. Three beds in the room so we could swap sheets if we needed. There was what I think was a water pump or generator making a racket just adjacent to our room.
A fellow guest one level up reported a young Filipino attempted to open his door by putting his arm through an open window and reaching across. It was about 8am and he was still in bed. Did not apprehend him of course. We had no such problem and our iPad and laptop were left in our room whenever we ventured out. We found the staff to be friendly enough, very friendly. I suggest they get many complaints and are quite defensive to begin with but when they realize you aren't ther to complain they are ok. Of course the management is poor and probably hard to track down if you bothered trying.
Over all the place is similar to old beach nipa huts we stayed in for long periods back in the early eighties. If you don't like roughing it a little bit, stay somewhere else. The wifi was ok, but there is a small charge. We paid 100 pesos for the four nights but this would also be negotiable,no doubt. The room is not cleaned unless you request it to be.
