I was skeptical, at first, to book this resort because of the bad reviews but I'm glad I look past that and had a wonderful stay in Camiguin. Bahay Bakasyunan may be more expensive than most hotels in Camiguin, but having actually seen the other choices, I can say that the resort is in fact value for money because of it's amenities and over all service.
The food in the resort's restaurant is modestly priced and is just about average. The buffet breakfast has limited choices and though you'll find instant coffee there, you can always ask for brewed coffee at no extra cost. We went out to look for a good restaurant outside and we tried a couple, but Camiguin is a sleepy town and dining out is not at par with other places in the country, at least for now.
The standard room is large enough but I think the aircondition is small for the room size. They do not have a portable water heater (for drinking) in the room, but I'm glad that you can call 24/7 for hot water, a must for guests with infants.
There are no decent beach in Camiguin mainland in my opinion. Hence, the absence of a good beach in this resort is not unexpected. Other resort may have sandy beaches but they are still nowhere near decent by Philippine standard. On the other hand, White island, a few minutes by boat, offers a unique sand bar and beach experience and is definitely a must in Camiguin. Other than that, the island is also a divers paradise and the hotel staff is more than happy to arrange a diving package for you.
What I genuinely liked about this resort is that they offer a range of recreational activities within the resort if you feel you had enough wandering done in the island and the resort staff are flexible enough to accommodate most of your request.
