We stayed here for 5 nights. We walked in and was given 1100php per night. I will base my review/ratings comparing the price to other places throughout SE Asia, not Boracay. The price I got for this type of accommodation was good, but at full price I would not rate it as high.
The rooms (called cottages) were small, clean, of decent quality. Unfortunately the air-condition is the "window" type not the split aircond type so it is noisy. I mentioned this and they did check the aircond and was told it is like that. I rated the sleep quality average because of this.
The tight compound is well kept with lots of vegetation. The place is well kept and they do small things like place a lighted mosquito coil in your "verandah" every night. And almost every night a little candle was lighted there too. Small things, attention to detail shows they put in an effort to make the stay as pleasant as possible.
We tried the mango shakes and pancakes. Good. The mango pancake is big enough for 2 persons if you're not famished.
Wifi was intermittent at times.
There was a 12 hour power cut, but they ran the generator so our comfort was not affected
