I went their with friends altogether 6 people. The rooms were terrible and uncomfortable. The staff wasn't friendly at all. It felt like we were bothering people in their own house. I tried to dive with them and felt like they were doing me a favor. The Divemaster was pretentious and lost me, his only client during the dive. Could... More

It looks like you are describing a different place, maybe you got the name wrong. Our rooms are comfortable and I see no terrible things inside, could it be the movie on your flat screen TV? Our staff is among the friendliest on Baloy beach if you treat them as your friendly waitress and staff. We love to be bothered... More

Visited Johan's for a 2 night break. First time there. The bar and restaurant area is very big, right on the beach. Their food and drink prices are very reasonable, even for a tourist location. Be warned, food portions are BIG! The rooms are also a very fair and reasonable rate, with no change peak or low season. The rooms... More

Well, it's an inexpensive Philippines beach resort--I can overlook many things on that alone. What I will NOT tollerate is piss-poor arrogant management that spends more time talking down to honest reviewers than actually fixing the problens! Yes, they are all easy fixes!
