Cozy little place. Spacious rooms with fantastic views of the sea, very close to the whale watching site, walking distance of approx. 2 min. The hotel staff is very helpful with everything. Book excursions and in-room massages with us. Highly recommend the place.

My husband and I stayed on this place twice and for sure will come back. A comfortable bed and a quiet place to sleep are the most important things we consider every time we choose a hotel/resort to stay. Finding a perfect or close to perfect(to our standard) hotel/resort in the province can be a challenge, luckily though, we found AJ's! This place is definitely what we look for. Their place is close to the whale shark watching area, about 5 minutes walk. They have a free private parking, a private beach and a garden. Overall, this is a nice place to relax if you're looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the big city. If you are a person who likes night life, you might be at the wrong place as the whole town is not for this type of thing. Room amenities include: TV, a private bathroom with hot and cold shower and an AC. They also have a closet and a safety deposit box. They also have coffee in the room with complimentary bottled water. So far, that's what I remembered unless they added more amenities. We stayed in room 2 which is on the second floor with a beach view. We first came to this place in 2019 and came back 2023 and it seems that the building where their rooms are looks exactly the way it was on our first visit. My guess is, they must have done a regular maintenance on it. They only have 3 rooms which makes the place less crowded. The staffs are all friendly and smiling and are always willing to help anything you asked them as long as it is within in their power of course. I will definitely recommend this place to my family and friends. We will come back soon with my in-laws!

And oh! They are close to Tumalog Falls, Sumilon island and even the monkey watching, so you can add these places on your bucket list when you visit Oslob. The pictures we shared here are mostly from our first visit in 2019 except for the photos with the monkey which we took on our recent visit which is the only activity we couldn't do on our first visit.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights while staying in Oslob to visit family and friends. We also had a wonderful visit to this resort in September 2019 that was equally excellent. This is my favorite place to stay in Oslob and I'm rather picky with my accommodations. If you are looking for a place with comforts that you are used to and can be somewhat difficult to find in the province areas of the Philippines, look no further. This includes ice cold AC (adjustable), excellent mattress and bedding, maintained facilities, and a roomy bathroom with excellent hot shower and nice toilet. Towels are plush and staff is quick to accommodate requests. Overall, best place to stay while in Oslob just visiting or doing whale shark watching.

My stay at AJ’s Place was far from satisfactory. Marketed as a welcoming retreat, it turned out to be a blatant tourist trap. Despite assurances that credit cards were accepted, I was blindsided with demands for cash payments, undermining any trust in their business practices. This establishment seems to prioritize extracting as much money as possible from guests rather than providing genuine hospitality. I strongly advise against staying here, as the experience was both frustrating and dishonest.

Response from Adrianne Silver, Owner at Aj's Place Beach Resort
Responded Mar 24, 2024
We apologize that you feel that we did not provide you with genuine hospitality. My staff did their best to accommodate your group despite the situation. Firstly, your booking with Agoda was transacted under Booking.com, to whom we are contracted with. Under our agreement with Booking.com, guests are required to modify their booking according to the number of guests that are checking in. Your reservation for Room 3 was booked for two guests; however, you arrived as a group of 4. (We do appreciate the prior notification of the additional guests.) As a courtesy, we added the additional guests and charged you directly so as not to inconvenience you with modifying the booking. You insisted that you already paid even after we explained that Agoda does not have our information to be able to charge you for your reservation... and your reservation was for 2 guests, not 4. Secondly, we do accept credit cards as a convenience for our guests. Guests are welcome to pay in cash if they prefer not to pay for the convenience of paying with a credit card. However, since you did not want to pay cash for the convenience fee, we accommodated you by adding it to your PayPal transaction. This is not our normal business practice as this means that we pay any extra charges. Again, we did this to accomodate you. Thirdly, we are not a tourist trap. The services we provide may be higher than outside vendors; however, we provide these services for the comfort and ease of our guests so that their visit to our island is as stress-free as possible. When guests book accommodations or services with AJ's Place, they book knowing they will be well taken care of during their stay with us. We have also assisted many guest with finding accomodations and services that were more within their budget. Our goal is to always provide exceptional service, even if that means helping our guests find somewhere else to stay or to help them hail the bus. We hope that the rest of your visit to Cebu will be more enjoyable for you and your friends. Kind regards, Adrianne Silver Owner, AJ's Place

New and welcoming structure, room with sea view, completely new and clean. Silent air conditioning, Nespresso coffee machine with capsules available, bathroom with shower and cleaning kit, slippers, comfortable bed with the possibility of choosing two different pillows. They don't have a restaurant in the hotel but excellent breakfast with tea, mango and rice directly by the sea in the external bungalow.
Guides available on site for snorkelling and diving to see the whale sharks and Sumilong Island, guide and transfers all included. Finally, all the staff are at your complete disposal even in the days before booking, capable of helping tourists and making them feel at ease.
Thanks❤️

Very well located hotel just 50m from the whale sharks. Very beautiful spacious rooms, facing the sea. Intimate only 3 rooms. Privileged environment, directly on the beach. Bring beach slippers to go into the water on sale in the street. Restaurant which adjoins the hotel serves directly at the hotel if desired. Good quality dishes, plentiful and very affordable (around €8/person). Very kind staff.
The hotel staff is very professional, helpful, kind, available, smiling….in short, we highly recommend this hotel.

Only the location, a 3-minute walk from the Whaleskark watching point, is interesting. Friendly staff but poor service. “Light breakfast” included in the reservation consists of an instant coffee and a very average Sticky mango rice. No other catering possible in the hotel. Pay attention to the method of payment: either cash or PayPal imposed with 5% fees. No direct payment by credit card possible. VAN service at an excessive price (we asked for 6000 pesos or around €100 for our transfer to the second hotel located only 1 km away!) Fortunately the 2nd hotel in Oslob came to pick us up for free.
