As I've mentioned, this is a great place to stay at if you don't mind a climb. The hotel is located on top of a hill, about a hundred steps from the ground. It would take less than 5 minutes to get to the beach. This place is recommended to those who like the quiet. The suite itself was huge. There are two bedrooms, a kitchen (with pots,pans,knives and a fridge), a dining area, a living area with television and a balcony. The only downside was that it only had one bathroom. But the view from the room was great. The hotel doesn't have a restaurant so you have to go down to eat. There's a small swimming area and pool/billards. Check in and check out was fast. The hotel is family owned so we were accomodated by the nice owners. Overall, my friends and I loved the place and thought it was worth our budget. I would recommend it to big groups of friends.

We booked this hotel on the positive reviews it had received but noticed that there were none from 2014. We had booked and paid for 8 nights but stayed only 4 before leaving and booking into another hotel. We have stayed all through Asia at guest houses and never had to leave in the past until now. The pool is dirty looking and not inviting, the spa was empty, the so called common area with pool table was occupied full time by the multiple families that live there and not really for guests, our room had no cold water in the shower so we were given a bucket and ladel to shower with and the building was very run down looking. The only positive was the bed was comfotable. There are much better options on the island around the same money.

The reason why we chose this hotel to stay at was because of their amenities, including the pool. In the photos, the pool looked great and clean. However, when we arrived the pool looked disgusting and dirty. We understand that the cause was because of the super typhoon "Haiyan". What we do not understand is why they did not clean the pool. And when we asked the caretaker about it, the niece of the owner she arrogantly and disrespectfully answered, "Hindi nyo naman sinabi na gagamitin nyo ung pool eh tsaka kung pool lang pala ang kailangan nyo eh di lilinisan" in english (You did not tell us that you were going to use the pool, we'll clean it) something like that. We reasoned with her that it was part of their amenities but she told us that it was because of the typhoon. The typhoon happened 2 weeks ago before we arrived and asked them why they did not clean it. They said the owner did not want the pool to be cleaned. Which was ridiculous of course. The niece called her aunt which is the owner and we heard them talking on the phone and the aunt was angry at the niece because they did not make the place presentable. The phone they used was also our phone. The caretakers didn't make the place presentable. It was in fact a horror to stay there, because of how we were treated. When we arrived, they were watching television and ignored us. We caught their attention when we said we were customers. The service was really terrible especially the niece who was so arrogant and disrespectful. We were so tired because it was already 10 pm so we just decided to stay for the night and change hotels. When we were sleeping, the power went out. That was 3 in the morning. They did not notify us about this. Really, really terrible. We decided to change hotels and went to Sofia Hotel which was really nice and the first thing that we noticed was the pool. Which is crystal clear. And the people were warm and they welcomed us. Unlike Jay Jays Club. I wich the owner was there and did not leave her business and her hotel to her niece. It would have been different. Overall, Jay Jays club is terrible because of the service and how we were treated with DISRESPECT. Do not stay here unless the owner is managing and there to greet you. Thank you.

Stayed here last October 2013. The staff are very friendly and accomodating, even the dog! :)
Before you go here, you have to climb 90 steps to reach the entrance. There's a swimming pool and a jacuzzi. The room is clean, with fridge, safe, and a/c. The bathroom is ok, with functional heater which is important for us.

It is located in station 1 and the price is cheaper than other station 1 hotels nearby. It is located behind the church, which is also near a 24/7 convenience store and 2 mins walk to the beach.
It is also close to Jonah's Fruitshake.

Overall it's a great experience and we'll book again at Jayjay's when we get back! :)

I'm working in a customer service company, so I would say I know how to gauge a superb customer service experience. People here are so nice especially "Caren". I could not ask for more. I will be back here and that's for sure.
