Villa de Babat one of the best stay in Batanes. Just few walks by Batanes Airport 3 mins. By city proper around 10 mins. We stayed there 6 days. It super incredible place. Room was spacious and also bathroom. Swimming pool is great after tour you can enjoy it. Price is middle for great comfort and relaxation. Ate Evelyn, kuya Noel and sisters ate Lani and ate Irene and also the cook I forgot his name will take good care of you. Everything you ask they will do their best. Especially when we celebrate wedding anniversary there. I ask them only the day when was there. They are super generous to accomplish it. Bravo bravo. We are teary eyed. The a/c is also super cold that sometime we turn it off. You never regret to stay there. And to recommend it. We will back there again soon. Dios Mamajes Villa de Babat.

I really liked it there. It has welcoming staff and good food, free wifi, with beautiful scenery. They have pool too (not advised to go at night because there is noisy crickets) and a little golf area. It is nearest lodging house to the airport. Again, the staff is very very nice and treats you like family. When you go to the lobby and a staff sees you, they’ll great you with a warm “good morning” to lighten up your day. It is a really nice place too. Each room (maybe? haven’t checked all but saw some) is a different layout which makes it special to your stay. I hope to go there again too. It’s really nice! 💗 SIDE NOTES: • as it Batanes, remember the wifi isn’t very fast. but, some areas have high signal but only for SMART users. (sorry GLOBE users!) • when you want to play the golf, the golf clubs (golf sticks or whatever you like to call it) is behind the mirror in the lobby.

Accommodation is very near the airport so you certainly won't miss your flight. Food from their in-house restaurant is excellent especially the fern salad and the flying fish that they serve for breakfast. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. You can even ask them to already avail the included breakfast upon arrival since you'll probably arrive at Basco early in the morning. I'd highly recommend this for anyone visiting Batanes. Dios mamajes!

Value for money stay at Villa De Babat (package for accommodation and tours) The best thing about our stay are the delicious meals served daily. You can order dishes not in their menu for a reasonable price. Our tummies were happiest during our stay there.

Stayed for 3 nights! Service was excellent. Food was great. 2 minutes away from the airport by walking. Definitely recommending the place to everyone! We were able to check-in early around 8am. Thanks for this!

When we decided to have a vacation in Batanes. My partner decided we should stay at this place. After searching we ended up here. Not a wrong choice indeed. Literally a stone throw away from the airport but the place doesnt get noisy coz there are only like 2 departures and arrivals each day and in the morning. The place is itself is a home converted into a homestay. Place very clean and tidy. Room comfy to a fault and air conditioning good!! Staff helpful but mostly locals that explains sometimes getting info on a lot things could be a bit tedious but hey that’s ok that’s the charm of batanes unhurried bucolic a small town. I just love it. It exudes peace & serenity where ever u go. When in Batanes I suggest you stay here. Bonus. Get the package tour and get chanpan tour and ask for Justine!

The place is literally a stone throw away from Basco airport. Went to Batanes as part of the family's welcome vacation for our eldest son (working as a lead cook at disney anaheim) and to celebrate our youngest 11th birthday. The place's staff ma'am evelyn fetched us and lead us to the villa. Place is cozy and clean with a warm welcome feel. The rooms are clean, beds are made and comfy. Though bathroom lacks some basic toiletries, they haven't forgot to install bidet to take my other ends business. What i liked the most in this place are the staff. They are friendly, helpful and with always ready smile. They even helped us in preparing a mini pool party for my son's 11th bithday bash with a surprise birthday cake to boot! So if you asked me if i will come back or recommend this place, the answer is YEs!

Villa de Babat provided what the Philippines is famous over the world for - warm hospitality! The clean rooms, impeccable service, and filling breakfasts did not disappoint. My friends and I were even able to dine and drink at their gazebo. Overall, we had a wonderful stay, we wish to come back!

The staff were very accomodating, they treated us like we were families. The place was as pleasant and comfortable as one's own place. They even catered to our special requests. Walking distance from airport. After we checked in for our flight back to Manila, they still accomomodated us back in the hotel for cup of coffee until it was time for boarding.

Villa de Babat is an excellent option if you're going to Batanes! :) It's a very homey place (it is a homestay, afterall). They have unlimited brewed coffee and water (not bottled though, you can bring the glass to your room, but you should have your own container if you want to have water when you go out). The room was spacious enough, and the bed was reaaaaally cozy. They will provide towels, but you have to bring your own amenities (toothbrush, bath soap and shampoo). TV was flat-screen and USB-capable (Almost no internet connection, so no Netflix! Bring your own movies if you want to watch anything and nothing's good on cable). During our stay, there is an ongoing construction just beside the place, so it can be noisy during the day, but it is peaceful at night. For the free breakfast, you won't have a choice, but the food is good enough. We attended a wedding during our stay, and we had our clothes ironed. When we checked out and asked how much we should pay, we were lucky enough that the owner was there and waived the fee for us! The place is also REALLY close to the airport. May be a disadvantage if you have plans of just walking around the town to look for a place to eat (the place is still walkable to areas in town, but it's also very easy to just call a tricycle - they can call for you if you need one). Even if it was so close, they will still provide free airport transfers for you. Will definitely stay here again :)
