Picturesque Batanes

Review of Villa Hontomin
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Sep 13, 2023via mobile
I’m in Basco for a working visit . Working while touring is something I do splendidly.

The hotel/inn is rather spartan, clean, and comfortable in its own way ( internet, cable tv, seaside view, room is spacious, and staff is polite and helpful.

As expected Batanes is picture-perfect.

Villa Hontomin is a perfect place to stay in Batanes. Hospitality, kindness, cleanliness and service were there as expected. It is located front beach with an amazing view, especially during sunrise and sunset. The room was very pleasant, it was cozy and clean. Breakfast was excellent! They have a limited team but have always been friendly, patient and helpful. That impressed me the most. You could turn to them with all your concerns no matter what time of day or night. As a first-timer traveler, I will definitely go back! This place was recommended by my friend 2 years ago when they stayed in Batanes. On my next adventure on the island, I will definitely check into Villa Hontomin. The price-performance ratio is outstanding and also the location is just perfect for a walk around or cycling if you wanted to. It was my HOME away from home.

PS. As a fresh graduate, Batanes was my dream destination ever since! It live up to my expectations. I'll give you guys update coz I'm going back in June

I have stayed here last 2019 with my friends and this year, I brought my family with me. Rooms are simple yet cozy and clean. The view from the balcony is amazing especially during sunset. Wifi is available but poor telco signal in the area. Villa Hontomin is highly recommended, me and my family had a great stay. I’d visit again in 2024 and hopefully book a couple room then. :)

Rooms are worn out, Low shower water pressure. No electricity during our second night, the hotel do not have a power generator. food service is upon request only at their given time. The hotel only has one van, guests must follow their schedule and leave early. Room rate is not acceptable for the service and accommodation type.

Apart from their beachfront location, this place has nothing much to offer. For the rates they have, you can find a better off hotel that is cheaper.

Rooms were quite small. Showers/ water supply was limited. Had to transfer rooms because of the water issue and the other rooms were just filthy and not ready for guests. I understand that location could be a factor so we didnt mind using the bucket and 'tabo'. But when you have to use a tabo with a big hole in it, it becomes very frustrating! Even after requesting for a new tabo, staff acknowledged but we never got a new one.

Despite all that, Some of the staff were accommodating when we asked them to cook our sweet potato haul from town.
