The place is cozy and beautiful however be prepared to do quite a hike. The road going to this place is very challenging. The 30 mins walk is not exaggerated. Not unless you are very fit and have good balance. I was not expecting what I had to walk, seeing the paved main road. I almost backed out seeing a rocky path on the side of a mountain that was only about 1 meter wide. That lasts just a few meters then it becomes a well paved road until you reach the end of it then it becomes a rocky, muddy and unpaved road again. Do pack very lightly. Basic necessities (shampoo, soap, towel, tissue) are provided. My companion and I stayed in Ifugao Hut 6 (with a window - view of rice terraces). The hutThere is no electricity in the hut and only candle but that is cool. I did not like the fact that there was no toilet in the hut and so to successfully avoid peeing in the middle of the night I peed before going to the hut and limited my water intake. Not very important for one day. I was told you can charge in the main house and I was the idiot who brought her laptop, extra hdd, chargers and etc. for an overnight stay:) Suffice it to say I made it hard for myself and I paid someone to carry my bag up to the main road the next day.…
Kuya Ramon is very accommodating and his staff. The food is very good, i like their chicken tinola and pork adobo but you have to wait long since they cooked it as you order and if they have a lot of customer you have to wait for more than 30mins. I stayed at ifugao hut no electicity only candle light but its ok since theres no signal youndont need your gadget and its near the path walk so its a bit noisy, people walking and talking, dogs are barking but i still managed to get a sound sleep because the hiking is very tiring. Kuya Ramon hosted a bonfire everynight with free rice wine and unlimited stories, you can asked him whatever you want. I will surely go back to his place.
We have really enjoyed our two nights in Ramon Homestay. Clean and comfortable room with electricity plug-in and very nice personnel! And the view directly from the room was unbelievable - see the pictures! We can highly recommend this place to everyone!
Back to basics. Century old native Ifugao hut. No electricity. No signal. No wifi. No water heater. No problem. Pure bliss. Pure fun. Thank you Mang Ramon for the bonfire experience. Talking to an elder and knowing the traditions of culture of the Ifugaos was a mesmerizing and truly memorable experience. Sunrise to sunset, the view of the rice terraces is breathtaking from Ramon's Homestay. Great food. Loved the native chicken they prepared for us. Great staff/family. It was home in the mountains away from home.
I really enjoyed my stay at Ramon's guesthouse. The owner is kind, helpful and happy. The room was clean. Their food is ok. The room's rate start from 250 pesos. I would like to stay here again, if I back to Batad one day.
