We stayed in this place twice. The first time was in Jan. 2016 with my husband for our wedding anniversary. We enjoyed the place that we decided to bring our daughter later that year. If you want privacy and peace this is the place to be. The accommodation is like a mini house. We have a small kitchen, refrigerator, free...

We tried first one of the more famous resorts in the islands but they tried to rip us off since it was "off season." The staff at The Bruce were able to accommodate us in such a short notice. They were able to provide us with an extra mattress and pillows as needed. We got a beach bungalow and the...

My husband, our toddler and I stayed in their standard room for 2 (fan room). It was spacious and clean. An electric kettle with a couple of mugs and coffee sachets were provided. We barely used the electric fan because it was already cool and not humid. Oh, since our room was part of a row of rooms, there were...

Found this hotel by chance when I was island hopping in the Philippines and I could not recommend it more! Our room was just a few feet away from the beach which was so secluded - felt like our own private beach! Even though the huts are positioned close together, you could not feel more private - we heard nothing...

We were in Siquijor over Christmas and stayed at The Bruce. We really enjoyed it. We had one of their family beach front cottages, which was awesome. Really spacious, two double beds which are separated by a half wall which doubled as a cupboard/storage space for our clothes etc. On top of that if you need more storage space there...

Rooms were nice and clean, the staff was helpfull and the location was perfect! It is located 15 minutes from the haven, and...

This is the perfect tropical getaway at a reasonable price. The sunsets on the beach here are to die for. Plus they have good Filipino food, laundry service, massage service (no happy ending), and good facilities.

Stayed with my family for 4D/3N, villa is clean & spacious (w/ kitchenette). Good location, sorrounded with a few restobars if you want to eat out and chill for the night. Staffs were very helpful. Beach area is muddy not recommended for swimming but offers free kayak for guests.

Me and my friends came here as our last stop (6pm) after we tour around Siquijor. We really regret coming here late because we didn't fully experience the peaceful and beauty of Bruce Resort.
