“Very Laid Back - The Staff too”
Reviewed June 26, 2011

Fair to over-priced but nice aircon rooms. The staff seemed to be on a permanent coffee break and everything just seemed too hard to do. You have to beg to get the room cleaned. No laundry facilities whichis a "must have" for out of the way places such as this.

Transport from this hotel is a major issue. There is no reliable transport services, unless you like overcrowded Taxi-bus, Trikes or whatever. Best to ring for a taxi from your cell phone.

Being a long way from anything, I expected at least a jug and coffee to make up for this. Nothing. No mini-bar too. But it did have a good mini-fridge.

Most items on the menu were unavailable, so ham and egg sandwiches were my main breakfast lunch and dinner.

Take your own jug, cups, t-spoons, coffee sugar and food. Be prepared to handwash your clothes in a bucket. Be careful in the water as lots of rocks and other dangerous obstacles.

You have to pay to use their internet PC. All drinks were sold by the bottle, so no glass of Rum and Coke with ice was available.

It's a nice place, but parts need finishing or building and it is a bit overpriced for this quality of hotel and services, or lack of.

All in all, a pretty place (see photos), but not a place I would recommend due to the above.

Room Tip: There are better & cheaper resorts nearbye

First day at the bar I ordered a RUM and COKE and was given a bottle with a litre of coke for 100 PHP.

The rooms are clean and you have a choice off non aircon for 900PHP a night, or 500PHP for non aircon.

The rooms have hot showers that work once you let them warm up a little.

The free WIFI is great, although doesn't work all the time.

Owner is friendly.

You can cook your own food and they have a refrigerator for you to use.

All in all we had a great time.

Pity it has rained most off the time, but this is not the resorts problem.

Just got done staying at Chamoirita's for 5 days. The place is nice with larger that expected rooms with a/c, warm showers and satellite TV. I felt very comfortable during my whole stay with excellent service. Enjoyed meeting the locals as well as numerous expats. Free WI-FI in such a place is a big plus. Imagine sitting out on the pier in a nice cabana with a cool ocean breeze using your laptop. I really felt I was in paradise.

First off, I did not stay at this resort. Why? First impression due to poor customer service.

I have to admit that this resort looks really nice and appears to have a lot of amenities that could make for a great stay, however upon arrival to the front desk at the restaurant/bar, the receptionist completely ignored us. We had to ask "Can someone assist us?" and then we were still ignored. After a commercial came on the TV, we were then asked "What do you want?" When we asked for room rates we were told "No available!" and then ignored again.

What a shame and what a sad way to address potential multi-night customers.
