Well worth the 700 pesos for aircon. Walking distance to the restaurants in town and the beach. The family is so lovely and you get coffee in the morning 😁 we moved here from staying at kota in a fan room for way more so glad we did !! Simple little cottage but so wonderful. Highly recommend 😊

Big blood splatters on the wall and full of mosquitos, dark, dirty and dingy. Stayed in the 'deluxe' cottage- the only thing deluxe about it was the check out process. The smaller cottages might be better, good location but definitely stay somewhere else in Bantayan.

We had a 5 beds cottage with bathroom for less than 8$/night in total it had a small kind of terace which was my favourite spot :D (free) morning coffees in company of small friends (kids of the owner) were precious moments. The staff is very kind and helpful, the hostel is about 10mn by walk from the beach/supermarket/restaurants. We... More

I stayed in one of the "backpackers" rooms and bear in mind the price point - its very cheap for a private room! Really happy for the price and yes, the road noise was a little loud in the daytime (if you want a siesta!) But it was not an issue at all at night time!! Not a long walk... More

Put simply the road noise is the deal breaker, if you stop near the front of the house. These are the very Spartan front rooms. Not even a clothes hook on the wall! The place obviously survived Typhoon Hynan and many Typhoons previously. Cheap and very basic. Ok if you get a room at the rear, if not best to... More

If you're booking here, you should learn to manage your expectations. The rooms themselves are clean, but they're very old. Took me a while to warm up to the bathroom since it too looked old and in need of intense scrubbing, but after a while I realized it was more of the old paint/lighting/cement walls than anything else. Toilet, shower,... More

I booked 2 rooms with Agoda for 2 nights on 3rd-5th August 2015. The bungalows and the garden look lovely but once you get into the room it is awful. It is dark, old and smells mouldy. The tap in the bathroom was dripping all the time and their was a yellow stain from all the water. There are TV's... More
