I'm really shocked by some of these reviews for this place. John and his wife have been really accommodating and set me up with a nice one-man tent on the beach for 200 pesos. It's a laid back, chill vibe here; food can take some time but it's good (the Filipino breakfast is portioned a little small, go for the...

We stayed for 1 night and found the rooms at 600 peso reasonable. Clean room, fan (no towels), shared bathroom (no hot water). The situation is great, right on the beach and an easy walk/tricycle into town. The food is very good and service exceptional - very attentive staff and helpful owner. Would definitely recommend.

Stopped off for a drink here whilst touring round the island, we noticed the sign JJ's cafe, bar and restaurant + internet access! This was brilliant as we needed to check out our onward travel plans! So you would think! We purchased our drinks and politely asked for the wifi password, only to be told, we weren't allowed to use...

Unfortunately we didnt stay here over night but would have loved to! (My dad lives on the island so we stayed with him most the duration of our trip), we did grab a bite to eat here though and they had a super good turkey/chicken sandwich with great potato wedges. The staff was super friendly, and the beach was great...

We rented 4 beds in the dormitory for 3 nights. The room was very spacious and cozy. We loved the place and the food was good too and came in quite a hefty serving. The beach is also beautiful. Instagram-worthy, ganon. :) Also loved the fact that you can borrow books for lazy days when you just want to sit...
