“I love long stay here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2010

I found that Hambilica Siquijor in Philippines is a nice and comfortable resort hotel to spend a vacation. This resort hotel has a natural garden that consists of many tropical flowering plants. The fruit trees lure a lot of birds from the deep forest of the island of Siquijor. Hambikica Siquijor has a nice snorkeling and diving spot where shore entry is possible for divers. When I dived there I could see a lot of fish such as Trumpet fish, a certain kind of Angelfish, Jaw fish, Damsel and many kinds impossible to write here. Just 30m from the shore I could enjoy snorkeling. Only 5 minutes walk is a dive shop where I could get diving gear very easily. So I recommend for tourists especially those who want to enjoy marine sports.

This was a quiet beautiful place to stay with a lovely view over the pretty gardens and out to sea. Little beach right there (more coral and rocks than sand though). Twin Rooms for only 700P without breakfast or towels, 800P with both, or cottages for 1500P. Very clean. Motorbikes for rent.
The owner was very friendly and helpful and really made our stay. Food was excellent, all fresh and home cooked with produce from the garden and the mango chutney was amazing! Not a big choice of what to eat, but v. good.
Only real downside is that its not that easy to get anywhere from the resort without your own transport, have to flag down a tricycle and after about 11am it seems there aren't many passing by. However this is the same for almost all the resorts on Siquijor. But its only a 20min walk to San Juan where there is transport and some restaurants.
Definately stay here - its a great little find!

This recntly constructed B & B ofers three trendy cottages.

I stayed on the upper floor of the cotage starting with 'T'.

It was only fan cooled but I slept well.

The room has a double and a single bed, plus a table.

There are two balconies: one is extremely generous in size and has a bamboo bench seat, a table and two bamboo chairs and a wide ledge. The other lacks seating but can be used if desired.

There is a lovly garden outlook with both banana and coconut trees visible.

The bathroom is trendy but lacks hot water. The shelf is more than adequate and the tiling non-slip. The toilet needed pails of water tipped into it by hand to flush poperly.

Beach acces is easy, although it is more seaeed than beach. Snorkelling at 5pm, I observed about fiv species though not n large numbers. It was however low tide.

Brakfast included a tab of Nestl yoghurt plus delicious Senorita mini-bananas grown on the property, along with the owner insisting I try her organic papaya also grown within the B & B grounds.

At P1500 a night, this was god value although toiletries should be provided in the bathroom.

The owner is adding facilities such as a kitchn z(separate building) and a storeroom for guests.
