As Batanes is so remote, any type of online connection is 'iffy' at best. I had a local sim card with provider Globe, and even mobile/cell signal was intermittent. Batanes really is the type of switch-off from social media type of place. Just book a night or more, you won't regret it!!

"The room upstairs."
"Choose the rooms upstairs as they are very airy. :)"
"Choose the rooms on the second floor, you'll have access to the family room and have better view."
"If you're a light sleeper, choose the rooms upstairs. But downstairs is cozy, and you get a good night's rest because everyone sleeps early."
"Second floor room with windows facing northeast has the best breeze"
