Liberty's Community Lodge
Reviewed March 21, 2014

We stayed 5 nights at Liberty's Lodge on Apo Island and it was a most enjoyable experience. The rooms cost 2000 pesos ($50) for 2 but this includes 3 excellent meals per day. Ask for room 4 or 2 if you want an attached bathroom but rooms 2,3 &4 have small balconies with an amazing view of the action on the beach. The power is only on for a few hours 3 times a day and off at about 10PM but this is an advantage as it is quiet during the night and the breeze keeps rooms cool. The island has an interesting ambiance with a variety of outrigger boats coming and going during the day with visitors, divers and locals and a village walkway selling everything. Be sure to wear wet shoes and be prepared to get slightly wet on the crossings as it is often rough (your baggage is stored dry below).

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view and attached bathroom and freshwater shower if you need one. Some rooms...

I stopped in for lunch after a morning snorkel.
Great fish soup, awesome view on lower terrace and ice cold San Miguel.
The service was great, the bathroom is primitive but I really liked the place!
If you are on Apo stop in and enjoy the place.

Liberty Lodge is not a fancy resort but if you are looking for nice and welcoming people, gorgeous views, and great snorkeling and diving, then this is the place for you! My husband and I stayed a week and still didn't get all the diving in that we wanted. The food was good and the atmosphere relaxing. If you need technology this is not the place for you. Wifi and power was not available all day(specific hours only). We will definitely return. Not luxurious but a fun and beautiful adventure!

A 4 day trip to Apo Island for the diving expanded to 7 days because it was such a fantastic experience. My companion (a non-diver) and I stayed at Liberty's Lodge and I dove out of the associated Paul's Dive Center.

The paradise setting Liberty's exists in would be worth going to for no other reason. Add to that some of the friendliest, greatest people you will ever encounter and some of the best diving I have found in the Philippines and you have a real winner.

If you are looking for 5 star amenities this may not be for you but if simple clean and comfortable accommodations, simple but tasty meals, reasonable rates, a friendly staff and a totally laid back atmosphere are your bag - you'll love this place as much as we did.

Beach diving on a coral reef, with lots of turtles, lies just a few kicks offshore. Boat dives to sites further away are just a few minutes ride on a banca. The coral at Apo Island was in good shape and there was more marine life than I had seen in several other locales.

The electricity comes and goes every 3 or 4 hours and the wifi is slow and crashes every so often. The big plus here is the tourist hordes and party hearty mob don't come to Apo.

Special unexpected treat during our stay - a whole BBQ lechon was prepared for Liberty's birthday and, as lodge guests, we got to share.

Room Tip: get one with an ocean view

This laid back and really friendly lodge manages to take care of its guests and the beautiful location too. As a result you get good food, attentive service and the most amazing snorkelling EVER!! Where else could you eat scrumptious fruit pancakes and then go swimming with turtles?
Lee, Arlendo and all the staff really make you feel welcome and have a genuine desire to maintain the beauty of this place for the future and keep this community sustainable.
There is wifi access too! And honestly the electricity going off early isn't a problem - it's quite relaxing! Cool water showers and comfortable rooms. Schlepping a bit but made up for by the magic of this little
island.
Nice fresh food and good value included in overall price.
And the beer's always cold! Cheers Libertys x
