Location - very good. It's just located near the beach. The beach sand is not white like the nearby Gota Village Resort but the water is good enough for swimming. It's near Matukad and Lahos Islands (around 2.5km away- you can hire a boat or if you're a swimmer just swim it🙂) where you can find white beaches and some coral reefs. For those planning to go Gota beach, it's just 800 m away but you have to ride a boat or a car/trike/habal-habal, the river is deep for walking across. Facilities- good. Nothing fancy or cozy. Clean beddings and rooms. They dont provide towels and toiletries so bring your own.They also have tv with cable and wifi. Water is free and available thru the water dispenser in the common dining hut. There are hammocks which I loved the most where you can relax and read a book or take a nap or just watch/listen to the sound of the waves. The tap water is sort of salty as it's supplied from the well. Staff- very good. The caretakers are very accommodating. Ate Neng and Kuya Romulo stayed around for any needs. Small things like not charging me for the instant cup of coffees I've requested is much appreciated. Food- For solo travellers like me, they dont cook or provide food but that's ok as there are affordable restaurants a few meters away like Isla de Magayon. There's even a bar at night (Tipsy Monkey Bar) where you can have some drinks. For group travellers, they can order food in advance and ask ate Neng to cook for them. You can also bring your own food. Rice cooker and electric kettles are are not allowed though. Cost- very good. the price is very reasonable and perfect for those on a tight budget. - [ ]…
