I stayed here a couple of nights on the way to Malapascua Island where i was diving. The owners welcomed me and looked after me like a family member, the food was great and the rooms were simple but homely and the mattress super comfortable! Really loved the views from here and there is excellent swimming and paddling in the...

We couldn't take the last boat to Malapascua, so we had to stay the night here, and we really enjoyed it. There is a big sign in the main road, so if you come by bus from Cebu and you have to spend the night, just tell the driver to stop at Skip hotel in Aguho, the hotel is 150m...

We stayed at Skip's while waiting for the ferry to Malapascua, because of very heavy rains. We slept in the new backpackers dorm, which is very nice for a dorm (only 7 handmade very solid beds, clean toilet and shower, ac). Although it can feel a bit expensive for a dorm (600 php/pp). The hosts and employees at the place...

The boat to Malapascua was not allowed to sail due to the weather, so our pickup driver arranged the hotel for us. I believed there are not many choices in Maya, so we were happy to stay here with nice beach view. Beyond our expectation, the food was delicious though they cooked slowly. Rooms are basic and simple. In general,...

My son enjoys the beach. The meals are basic north american food with a philippines twist. The price is cost effective. We will be...

It is an older building, and the facilities are basic. The airconditioning can be a bit loud, though the karaoke louder. The good news is the karaoke dies down around 11pm which wasn't so bad. The rooms do have nice views to the sea, and the staff are quite friendly, so it is not a bad place at all for...

Kind hotel staff, relaxing beachfront and sunrise view. Stayed at the backpacker's room. There were no other guests so we got the room for ourselves. The room and place is alright for a basic stay. Just enough to stay overnight. Sometimes water runs out, no cabinets for our clothes. Food is slightly pricey but tastes good.

There are several very loud outdoor karaoke just near this resort. They play continuously and at the same time from early morning 6 or 8 AM until late night arround 1 or 2 AM. The Karaoke play at the same time, resulting in some very loxud horrible irritating mixture of noises. The resort itself is nice and the owners and...

We where stuck here one night on our way to malapascua. The weather was too bad to sail, so our driver arranged for us to stay here. The food was quite bad, and the rooms/beds where quite bad. Luckely we only had to stay one day.

I've stayed here a few times, and I'll do it again and again, not because I like it here, but because the only other option in the vicinity is a top of the line villa which is 5-8 times the price here. The rooms are spartan, the hot water is not consistent, Internet is weak, and the food is bad....

“Some rooms are in the cabana's in the yard. I have been here only after the hurricane yolanda and they are now about all rebuilt. The storm really devastated the country side but the people seem to have not missed a beat. The main house is completely restored. I like all the rooms but if you ask to look around when you get there they will accommodate you if other rooms are available.”
