I have stayed here last 2019 with my friends and this year, I brought my family with me. Rooms are simple yet cozy and clean. The view from the balcony is amazing especially during sunset. Wifi is available but poor telco signal in the area. Villa Hontomin is highly recommended, me and my family had a great stay. I’d visit again in 2024 and hopefully book a couple room then. :)

I’m in Basco for a working visit . Working while touring is something I do splendidly.

The hotel/inn is rather spartan, clean, and comfortable in its own way ( internet, cable tv, seaside view, room is spacious, and staff is polite and helpful.

As expected Batanes is picture-perfect.

The staff here are very accommodating and have assisted me throughout my stay. Even during the cancellation of flights, the staff kept in touch to secure me. My tours were also arranged by them through trustworthy operators. Very nice room- new and fresh. View of the sunset is very good. Breakfast quality can be improved though.

Since we arrived in Basco last Feb. 9, this hotel exceeded expectations all the time. From the airport transfer, the owner of the hotel drove the van, to the very accommodating and friendly staff. Room was clean. Toothbrush, toothpaste, towels and soap were provided but no slippers so bring your own. Food needs to be ordered in advance if you are planinng to eat here. Breakfast was included in our payment. A tip when you visit Batanes is to provide an additional day of leave when you travel back. The weather there is unpredictable during our stay and its better to brace for the worse

Even just to stay in your hotel is already a vacation. Beach front, very personalized service. The owner himself does the airport transfers and enteratining guests at the hotel. Will definitely recommend.

Villa Hontomin is a perfect place to stay in Batanes. Hospitality, kindness, cleanliness and service were there as expected. It is located front beach with an amazing view, especially during sunrise and sunset. The room was very pleasant, it was cozy and clean. Breakfast was excellent! They have a limited team but have always been friendly, patient and helpful. That impressed me the most. You could turn to them with all your concerns no matter what time of day or night. As a first-timer traveler, I will definitely go back! This place was recommended by my friend 2 years ago when they stayed in Batanes. On my next adventure on the island, I will definitely check into Villa Hontomin. The price-performance ratio is outstanding and also the location is just perfect for a walk around or cycling if you wanted to. It was my HOME away from home.

PS. As a fresh graduate, Batanes was my dream destination ever since! It live up to my expectations. I'll give you guys update coz I'm going back in June

Apart from their beachfront location, this place has nothing much to offer. For the rates they have, you can find a better off hotel that is cheaper.

Rooms were quite small. Showers/ water supply was limited. Had to transfer rooms because of the water issue and the other rooms were just filthy and not ready for guests. I understand that location could be a factor so we didnt mind using the bucket and 'tabo'. But when you have to use a tabo with a big hole in it, it becomes very frustrating! Even after requesting for a new tabo, staff acknowledged but we never got a new one.

Despite all that, Some of the staff were accommodating when we asked them to cook our sweet potato haul from town.

One of the newer hotel in Basco, Villa Hontomin offers an uninterrupted view of the south china sea.

The three-storey hotel, offers a good selection of air-conditioned and ventilated rooms including a family room that accommodates up to five pax.

A value-for-money accommodation with a View!
