My wife and I went to Port Barton for a couple of days and were fortunate to be housed and fed at Buseros! We were told that each plate was good for one but when lunch and dinner were served we were surprised by the large portions. The staff and chef came over to see how our meal and stay...

The guesthouse is just in front of the beach and from the restaurant and the balcony you have a fantastic view on the entire bay. The rooms are very basic, but clean and they come with a shared bathroom. There are also two bungalows if you like it more private. The staff is very kind and helpful. Wifi is slow,...

This was the first place we sat down at after our LOOOOONG journey to Port Barton. The staff was OK. We ordered cocktails, which were disgusting! I ordered a pina-colada and there were chunks of old coconut milk in it. The food on the other hand the food was pretty good! The veggie burger was great!

The rooms at el busero are basic (and only cost 600php per night) but what is lacking in the rooms is well made up for in the service and friendliness provided by the staff that work in the downstairs restaurant. We ate at this beachfront location many times on our visit to port Barton and were always more than happy...

Rooms were basic, shared bathroom. But quite clean for the price- and for a beachfront (yes, beaches are nice and you can swim in it - just watch out for boats) Overall, great value for the money. Food was decent and ok-priced. Love the hammocks!

During the off season we stayed here for 6 days and we were very saticfised. We had a small clean bungalow directly at the beach. There are also some cheap rooms with a shared bathroom. In the area from El Busero are a lot of hammocks to relax. The people here was every time very friendly and the food was...

The beach at your feet, a nice lady who attends to the place and cooks good meals and a chill-out balcony with hammocks. What else would you need ? We stayed there for 4 days to enjoy the peace of the beach. The area is nice to go for walks. As it was low season, the beach was practically empty.

located right at the beach and very cental. for a good price you have a clean room with good environment. the staff is very friendly and helpful. the restaurant is great, specially the breakfast. there's a lot of places for the community to join.. that's very important, because restaurant and bars closes at 9 PM during low season
