Dumaguete Studio Apartments
Reviewed 23 February 2017

The pool is great as is the staff. If you are relaxed they will treat you like family. The place is a long way from Dumaguete and because trikes are difficult to get back from town, I think to make the most of your stay here you need to be able to ride a motorbike which are provided and are all well maintained and low milage. I spent 2 months and it was great but can ride - if I couldn't the location would be debilitating. I would certainly stay here again for another 2 month stay. Thanks to Dave and Marissa for being great hosts.

Room Tip: I was upstairs which I think was cooler than the downstairs as it would get the breeze

I don't understand why Paul knocked our rating down due to the distance from town. It does take 5 to 10 minutes to come and go using I free motorbike, but he knew that a long time before he decided to stay here. Distance and travel time is clearly posted on our web page so why give us a poor rating on distance from town. Most of our guess love it here because we are 5 minutes from town and not in the crowded area. On well, I guess I will never understand lots of folks. Anyway, Paul did say he would gladly stay here again. His comments should be taken as 5 stars!

I stayed in the Dumaguete Studio Apartments for a total of 5 months in 2016 and found it to be a safe, comfortable and convenient place to live. The apartments are nicely furnished and the grounds are well landscaped with a large swimming pool and outdoor lounge areas. The apartment rental even comes with the use of a motorbike included. The hosts, David and Marisa, are honest people and treated me fairly and the staff was friendly and kept the place immaculate. I enjoyed my visit and I would definitely stay there again.

The apartments are super clean and offer all amenities you need. The complex is extremely safe. The pool is amazing, the location is quiet, outside of the city but still very near and therefore convenient. Staff is super friendly and always helpful. The motorbikes are in top condition! All in all highly recommended!

This place has all the things that are hard to find in dumaguete. It's clean, well maintained and safe. The staff are very friendly and always cleaning, fixing or updating something. It has a nice pool with lush green grass all around. The rent includes your choice of several nice well maintained motorbikes. If you get hungry and don't want to leave, they will make you something to eat in their clean kitchen for a reasonable price. They offer laundry service as well. If you have any problems they will handle it promptly. There are a few strict rules that must be followed if you want to stay, like don't leave the gate open at night and don't smoke anywhere except for the designated smoking area. Stuff any decent human being should understand. I stayed for a month and I think you'd be very hard pressed to find better accommodation in dumaguete.

Stay for almost 3 years except Decembers. Exceptionally clean and all areas are well kept. Safest place I have stayed in the Philippines. Motorcycles are in perfect condition and newer models. Almost family home type atmosphere in an apartment type building.
Good job David, I will definitely return in January for additional months.

Room Tip: First floor apartments are cooler saving on electric. Recommend 2 thru 4.

Dave, Marisa, and their great staff provide everything you need for either a smooth transition or a no hassle vacation. Its peaceful and its beautiful just as you see from pictures. From the scooter rental, to the electrical outlets everything has been thought out for you and ready for your stay.

There's a spiteful review here...flat out lies that border on comedy. Here's the truth.

It is extremely quiet and you wont find a better quality apartment on the Island of Negros Oriental. Do the math on the cost per day along with the amenities. You wont find better internet, cable, SECURITY and a western style existence for the price anywhere. That's why people don't leave.

If you want to get drunk and howl at the moon this isn't the place for you. Its a HIGHLY respectable community built on peace, quiet, and mutual respect for other guests. I would not even consider staying anywhere else. And to be honest there isn't another place of this quality on the Island any way. Book with confidence.

I stayed at Dumaguete Studio Apartments for 3 weeks in July 16. The apartment was immaculate and contained everything I required for my holiday. The whole place was spotless and nothing was to much trouble for David or Marisa, the owners. In addition, super fast Wifi and the use of a motorcycle was also included. There is also a beautiful swimming pool which was great to jump in first thing in the morning and then again in the evening, to relax after a long day exploring.
I really enjoyed my stay there and intend to return later this year. If you are looking for a safe, friendly and peaceful place to stay, I would strongly recommend Dumaguete Studio Apartments.

Room Tip: I stayed on the first floor which gave me a great view.
