The beach house is just a good minute walking distance from the beach front. Which was fortunate for us because we went there around monsoon season (august) so there were times that the wind from the sea was blowing sands all over the place. The beachfront properties are the ones affected and we had no problem. So if you plan visiting the island during the monsoon season, i'd recommend this one.

The rooms are just ok. We had twin sharing room, equipped with a bathroom, a working fridge, a/c, a safe, and a telly.

Sleep quality is ok. It's a bit far from the party places in the island so you can sleep well.

Outside the rooms there is a balcony with table and chairs you can hangout in if you want to smoke or have a drink. Clothesline are there too for your wet suits.

Staffs are friendly and accommodating. We felt at ease leaving our stuffs in the room.

The location is convenient as well. It's just by Station 2. Though it's a little further in between streets. We got lost looking for it. It's near Reyes BBQ (this one's near the beach front), and from the main street it's just a few streets after the old D'Talipapa.

I just walked up to the front and met Melanie, she offered to show the room and gave me a rate of P2000 if I stayed more than 1 night. I looked inside the room and it's great. Painted yellow, I have the corner suite upstairs. TWO windows, nice and bright, clean all round. Wooden tree like furniture, dining table, fridge, hot coffee, hot shower with good water pressure.
Also the bed is soft and the sheets are really fresh and new looking. Air conditioner, shelving for clother and a couple of hangers. Small TV. It seems quiet so far. I can't say anything bad about it. WiFi connection seems fine. It has a terrace not a balcony but I'd be happy to open my door in the morning and sit in the chair to enjoy people passing by below.
Come and see for yourself... I'm fussy and this is a great room for the rate.

Room tip: Go straight to the dead centre of your desired location and work your way outwards seeking a room. That way you'll know how close and far you are from just where you want to be... Nice!

my wife and i stayed for 6 nights on our pre honeymoon holiday just recently and both loved it. the room was clean, had a cottage like decor with wooden furniture and panels. the bathroom was clean with a stand in shower stall. lil inconvenient for some but good enough for us. there was enough room to move around. the floor was spotless, and best of all... no cockroaches!!

the beach was just 30 steps away, the restaurants, bars and shops was conveniently few steps away as well. towels and bed sheets were replaced daily, the staff were more than helpful, hospitable and pleasant. we went to maricar and jun's cute lil cafe (the owners); the food was great with reasonable price.

overall, i would highly recommend the villa paula to those who are looking for something simple with affordable rate. thank you maricar, jun and maritess for your friendly welcome and assistance.

see you guys again soon.

I stayed here over the busy Halloween period. The room and location is fine no view but definitely a budget place.

i called the the girl owner of this resort and ask if she can booked us during the holy week of 2008. i am with my husband and daughter, my parents my sisters, and brother in law. she said she will email me back the rates. 2 days later after waitng she responded to my email indicating the rates. it is a super peak season, their rate is of course a bit higher but since it is very difficult already by that time to look for a cheaper accommodation i told her to reserve the rooms for us.

again she told me that she will email me as she is so busy with her work. after a week and there is still no email i called her again and ask her how can i make the downpayment , for the nth time she said she will email me but i can rest and relax as she already reserved the rooms for us. i keep on saying that it is hard to make a reservation at that time so i hope we already made a deal plus i am with my parents. she affirmed that i do not have to worry.

a week before our scheduled flight she called me offering me rooms from different resorts and hotels. i do not want to be rude to elders so i just followed her instruction to call but all of the place are fully booked already. what do you expect? it is only a few days away before the lent.

i told her my plea and our agreement, instead she texted me again another number for our reservation but i did not heed anymore as i am already irritated to her.how can she made the agreement and later on tell us that we should look for othe vacancies? she should have told me beforehand.

i look for their place when we got there March 2008. it is far from the shore which is not good since u will get tired before you can reach the white sand. and it looks like ur staying in an apartment. yuck!

i definitely do not recommend this place!
