If you are looking for nature ambience you should try this one. Their rooms are cottages type, No TV, No Aircon. But this is the best place for me to stay in if you really want to explore catanduanes. It is near from beautiful places. They accommodate well. Cheap rooms. You can also have a lesson for surfing for about... More

Went here for an overnight stay with my friend. Room is cheap, P350/night (no aircon) which is good for two with a shared bathroom. Food was good but it took us how many times to ask for a ff.up for them to give us our order. Good place to stay when you're planning to go to Binurong point. You can... More

We went here just days ago for the Catanduanes Reef Break and one word to describe it is CHAOS. I heard that last year's event was even more chaotic, no wonder guests were lessened this year. Okay why did I rate it as poor? I hate the fact that the organizers manipulated the cottage and room rentals. You cannot rent... More

Stayed in a thatched hut and learned to surf the Majestics. This is a perfect place to really get away from the world. Everything is normal as normal gets. No pretenses, no fancy names for food. Spam is spam, and instant noodles are as it says... Visitors come here to surf, detach from city life, take in the sun and... More

Went solo and hired a van to take me around catanduanes. Arrived here midday and left after a few hours, the place is almost deserted sans the resort staff, handful of locals and guests. The waves are not as high but reach far, the sand is light yellow and almost fine. Rock formation is good, but the choices for lodging... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in Baras, Catanduanes, Puraran Surf Beach Resort is the home of the well-known "Majestic" waves with the awesome long-barrel-type surf. May to November is when international surfers from Australia, Japan, United States, Europe and other countries descend. That’s when offshore waves are in their utmost shape.

For holiday seekers, this is a place for total relaxation, be in touch with nature, and simply, innovation and peacefulness. ... more   less

“I heard the cottages in the middle are new and nicer, it's a different management from Puraran Beach Resort and Majestic Resort.”

“The rooms available are not A1 class available in luxury or elite class hotels and resorts... so don't expect too much... Just enjoy simplicity and the beauty of nature and the stillness of the night during off-peak season.”
