Positve: Don't hesitate to go there, if you stay in Sablayan. Real hidden place far away from the noisy city, with an amazing coast and staff. Just some bungalows right at the ocean, perfect kitchen, and lovely owner. If you travel alone, you can find a great company. Negative: Distance from the town can be too much, but I had a motorbike, therefore ist wasn't a problem for me. Accommodation's surrounding could be more improved, and the bier is a bit expensive

Sablayan Paraiso has a very affordable price compared to other hotels in Mindoro and that is why I chose it. Sablayan Paraiso is great value for money, and comfortable. Private little bungalows near the beach, I was surprised there were no mosquitoes. The owners are very flexible - I bought food from the market, and they cooked it for me. The owners are also very welcoming and informative. Be aware that there are two types of bungalows, with or without private showers. I had a the shared shower which is designed as a "poso" a little room made of nipa and bamboo; back to nature. The check-in and check-out was very fast. However the internet was very slow to non-existent. The beach is clean and shallow, the sand soft and continues on for miles, and the view of the mountains magical. I enjoyed my stay and recommend it for anyone wanting to relax away from the five starts. Stay up late and enjoy the night sky.

Checked in sometime in late October to first week November 2018. Few guests were there since it is low season. Sablayan Paraiso is one of the best, if not the best, resorts in Sablayan. Pros: 1. The hosts/resort owners are responsive to inquiries. They are nice and accommodating once you meet them. They can also help you arrange tours/trips anywhere in Sablayan. 2. Their location is accessible to the beach and market. The beach is just in front of the resort. The market, though a little far from the resort, can still be reached by walking. It is around 1.3km away from the resort. 3. Food has large servings, a lot of varieties to choose from, too. Good food, good wine, good beer, good spirits. Everything good in the kitchen. 4. The accommodations are simple yet beautiful. It has been built well and really suited for guests needs. We stayed in nipa hut, good for 2 pax. The bed has soft matress and mosquito net, will remind you of the simple rural living. It has electrical outlet (where you can charge your devices) and electric fan. There are also a lot of hooks and layers of shelves where you can hang and place your stuff (fyi hooks and shelves are seldom in most accommodation in other resorts ive stayed in). I must say Im really impressed with Sablayan Paraiso's accommodations, with the small details making most of it. There is also a veranda as part of the nipa hut. Beautiful. The owners were really thoughtful of putting those stuff there. 5. Free wifi at the dining area. 6. Lots of hammocks where you can chill or sleep. 7. The area is safe even if its a little secluded from the town. 8. The public toilet is clean too, with enough hooks and clothesline. Con: 1. The resort is around 1.3 km from the market, a little secluded. You can go to the market by A) walking along the beach B) through boat ride, then - either walk in the paved street or - ride a tricycle going to the market. Boat ride costs Php 20 per person, one way, while tricyle Php 10-15 per person. At night, coming from the market, you can walk the long stretch of seashore going to the resort, however, there are no lights and it's dark, unless you are not scared, then you can just walk. However, you can call the resort to pick you up at the bridge. Costs Php 120 if you call between 6pm-7am, and Php 60 during day time. Anyway, walking that distance may be an advantage or disadvantage, it is up to you. My overall stay in Sablayan Paraiso : 10/10 Excellent food, good location, lots of activities, beautiful accommodation, friendly owners, good service, and budget friendly!

I would like to give this resort a 5 star rating but there are a few small attentions to detail in the areas of customer service and facilities that prevent me from doing so. On the plus side the resort is intimate and beautifully rustic. With it's limited accommodation, you can be sure there are fewer than 20 guests staying here at any one time. It is located on the beach and can only be accessed by boat or you can also take a foot bridge that you will find near the public market. You can walk or ride your motorcycle over. Take a right once you get over the bridge and follow the road until it ends. Here you find a short dirt path to the beach. If you ride your motor cycle make sure to stick close to the water where the sand is packed down. The restaurant/bar is also small, but nicely situated so you can watch the sunset right from your chair. A short walk to the beach will give you a front row seat to the spectacle. There is free wi-fi and 2 charging stations with USB ports or a plug-in outlet near the stereo. Accommodations are simple. The two nipa huts (bahay kubo in the native language) are small bamboo huts made in the traditional Filipino style with grass roofs and bamboo walls. They are just big enough to hold a double bed and a few shelves. There is electricity and a fan is provided. The beds are also traditional bamboo beds with foam mattresses. They are comfortable. A mosquito net ensures you wont be bothered by the pesky critters. There were very few around when we stayed there. I didn't use my repellent at all. The bungalows are slightly larger than the nipa huts but they have a private bathroom with a shower. Otherwise they are built exactly the same. If no bungalows or nipa huts are available, or you just want some really inexpensive accommodation you can opt for a tent pitched in the sand near the entrance to the resort. The menu is interesting and offers an eclectic mix of European, North American and Filipino dishes. Some dishes require advance ordering. The bar is also reasonably well stocked and they offer a selection of local Filipino beer, some international brands and a few local craft beers. I exhausted their supply of IPA from Juan Brew, a local craft brewery. It's a delicious full flavoured IPA and they kept it ice cold for me. The staff is friendly and accommodating. They are also knowledgeable about the local attractions and diving/snorkeling activities. However, they did not seem to be overly anxious to provide service, which brings me to the negative side of things at Sablayan Paraiso Beach Resort. Whenever I came and sat down in the restaurant/bar I had to ask for something even though a staff member was usually just a few feet away. Maybe it's just me, but I don't want to have to ask for service. No one would ask me if I would like another, even if they noticed I was empty. Several times I found myself reminding the staff I had ordered another drink. I found this to be an unnecessary source of irritation. Ordering food was also a bit of a challenge. On more than one occasion I had to remind a staff member that I had ordered something. The menu items seemed to be hit and miss. The Pad Thai was delicious, the Quiche Lorraine looked wonderful as does the Stuffed Squid. I'm sure the Adobo Chicken would have been wonderful too, but my order was never given to the kitchen. I ordered a hamburger but I'm not sure what it is I got. It was in a hamburger bun, but cabbage is never a replacement for lettuce. The shower in the public shower was also a problem. It needs to be replaced or cleaned as it only dribbled water even though plenty of pressure came from the tap. Despite the issues mentioned, I will probably return. The staff and the location make this place.
