#1 of 5 B&Bs / Inns in Zamboanguita
More than one hundred steps lead down to Kookoo’s nest Eco-lodge, which comprises of six simple, comfortable, native-style bamboo beach cottages and rooms, with a central restaurant. They are set in a pocket of woodland that slopes steeply down to the edge of a small secluded sandy cove, facing the sunset. The buildings have been beautifully constructed by artisans from the village using traditional techniques, from locally sourced bamboo and the leaves of the Nipa-palm. The ladies from the village prepare excellent fresh food for the restaurant and see to guest’s everyday needs, while their husbands tend the herb gardens, carry provisions, and drive the boats. A small dive-shop offers tuition and diving on the beautiful coral reefs that surround the peninsula. Snorkeling gear is available for those who do not dive, and Kayaks can be rented for exploring Tambobo bay, fishing village and remote beaches.

Didn't know about Kookoo's Nest until a friend from Moalboal recommended it and what a great surprise!! The place is beautifully built, greatly serviced by attentive and happy staff. Delicious food. Best sunsets. Nature all around. A true gem!

This place is all you can hope for is you Google Search includes word like "paradise, piecefull, perfect atmosphere, romantic, quiet, amazing" The hospitality is very Phillipines like, meaning it's so nice and friendly or makes you wanna stay for ever. If you stay here they have a trust based system, where you takes your cold drinks is a freezerbox and put a mark on a chalkboard for your tap in the bar. The food is ready good, and all is home made, which means it takes time to prepare, so be patient. I have nothing bad to say about this place, we stayed here for a week

When you'd like to get away from the street noise, hear nothing else but the sound of the waves, water splashing on the rocky shore, no need for apps to hear the sound of nature, Kookoo's nest would be the place to go. Here, you can find serenity at it's best.

Beautiful and relaxing private beach, with lovely bamboo cottages. Excellent restaurant on site and welcoming hosts. Can’t recommend enough. Only 108 steps to get to resort. Very good value and a high standard. Able to arrange trips from resort to other parts of island.

Rooms are very basic cottages. It's open air so expect all the bugs buzzing your ears while you sleep and wake up to insect bites in the morning. Mosquito net provided is dirty. The staff and non-Filipino owners are discriminating towards the local guests. Rude and not hospitable. They're extra friendly if you're a foreigner. The beach front is a few meters stretch only. Lots of sea urchins around and many guests were injured from it every single day. They don't post any warning along the shore. They don't even provide for any first aid. Their filthy dogs would lounge around the restaurant while you eat. Very undesirable smell of the dogs will hover around while you eat their ordinary meals. They have kayak for rent but they don't provide life vests instead they will just let
