4 nights/ days in Batanes were just about right for us, and staying at the fundacion was a good experience overall. 1) What we liked: Comfy bed and room. Great views. Peace and quiet. Good food at the cafe. Hotel is able to arrange tours if asked. Friendly staff. 2) What we did not like: Room change without prior notice upon arrival after collecting all funds. Restricted breakfast the day on the arrival just to be told on departure that breakfast on departure day was not included. And their version of "continental breakfast" seemed to vary every day! What is included in the PAX seemed to be held back by cafe staff on our 1st day till i of course complained about it. No wifi in the rooms is just annoying as you must leave the quietness of your room for the sometimes too noisy cafe! Food was certainly good but a bit too pricey for what it actually is. All in all, if you can afford it, this certainly a place to visit when in Batanes!

My daughter and I stayed at the Valugan II room and the view of the Pacific Ocean and rolling hills was magnificent. Service was excellent and they even offered to pack our breakfast for us since we had an early flight on our last day. When I asked the hotel shuttle driver a good place to try traditional Ivatan dishes, he asked me what time we wanted to have dinner and took the initiative to coordinate with the front office to book us at a restaurant. The picturesque views in the property and the superb service are well worth the price you pay for your stay.

I finally visited again after 10 years and this place remains lovely as ever. I was able to get the sea-facing balcony room in the main house - highly recommended. What’s changed is that now there’s an excellent restaurant on site which has fantastic food choices and excellent drinks. The staff was super warm and caring.

Just reopened after the pandemic. This is one of the most relaxing and restful places I’ve stayed in. Batanes is beautiful, and Fundacion was great - the staff were ever so friendly and accommodating, the food was really nice and the surroundings marvellous. It is expensive but I thought it was worth it.

The best place to honeymoon in! Batanes is breathtaking on its own but Fundacion Pacita made it even better! No wifi or TV, so we were immersed with each other and the scenery! Our room had the best view of both the land and sea and it was very serene! Food was great in Cafe du Tukon. And the staff was really friendly and courteous. Will definitely go back here with the husband.

Best place in Batanes, pricey but worth it! Views are amazing, staffs are helpful and very courteous, must book way in advance, rooms are most of the time fully booked, we just stayed for 2 nights and had to transfer coz of no room availability, we got the Valugan 2 room and the view from the private porch is amazing, which I think is the best room in Fundacion, it's not located at the main building but it is the nearest to the Cafe du Tukon resto and reception area, foods are great and the ambience is awesome, you can stay the whole day just admiring the views! Next time we have to book very much earlier (maybe a year in advance) so we can stay again at Fundacion Pacita, looking forward for our next Batanes trip with our kids!

it’s a nice property. Food in the restaurant was very good especially breakfast. There is no WiFi and no credit card Machine, so make sure you bring cash and something to keep you entertained. The island is beautiful with unpredictable weather, tours to nearby islands could get canceled, just like in my case or even your flight from or to Manila! Recommended!

Fundacion Pacita may be considered by many as too pricey but if you get to stay in their rooms, you would be able to say that it's actually great value for money. We stayed in their Sumla 2 room, which used to be Pacita Abad's very own room. And the view from the balcony would make you understand why National Artist Pacita Abad had so much inspiration for her artworks. There wasn't any television in the room, but if you are surrounded by such natural beauty, you wouldn't need one. It's the perfect place to disconnect from ths hectic and stressful world and just focus on your well-being and marveling at nature's work. Their restaurant also offers great food and a great view of Batanes' pastures! Perfect for couples celebrating their anniversary or honeymoon. Or even for families wanting a quiet retreat from the typical city vacation.

Has the best view of Basco, Batanes. Very recommendable for couples specially for honeymoon. You will not have second thoughts when you see the place. Peace and quiet you'll want to be here forever and you'll regret if you pass on this travel for the rest of your life.

We were on vacation in Batanes for my partner’s birthday. What can I say, just where do I begin... the place is magical! Postcard pretty. Not only is the place very beautiful but the surrounding view of the sea and the mountains is awe inspiring. There is a sitting place by the window with the rocking chair inside the museo which is like a combi of the old man and the sea and wuthering heights. So beyond description. You have to see it with your own eyes to appreciate it. Food is also delicious and generous. Staff so ever helpful & courteous typical ivatan hospitality. A must see in one’s lifetime!
