welcome to the jungle

great nature, beautiful view and pure people
9
Fantastic basic place. Feel like Tarzan and Jane in the Jungle. André and his family make your stay pleasant. His wife is a wonderful Cook, the children the best guides. They show you the way in Sabang; the best beaches to go, where to find find the monkeys and lizards. They also arrange your transfer to the airport and the tour to the underground river. Forget about Sheridan; visit Bamboa! If you are a Real adventurist: go with André on his Jungletour. He used to live with the natives in Sabang so knows his way around. A place we will never forget. ..

Nice place just outside the toen

Quiet, natural and friendly

All was fine. It's basic, but does the job. Couldn't expect much more for the price we paid. And our dinner was very good.

Uncomfortable

view in the surrounding area, cost
4.3
Staying here was a strange and unsettling experience. I've been traveling for two weeks in the Philippines, and this was definitely the most bizarre experience. The location is not bad...about a 10-15 minute walk into town, and with lovely views of the surrounding hills and rice patties. However, it took quite some time to locate the "manager" (I arrived mid-afternoon), and he was quite young (looked about 18) and not even slightly friendly. I'm not sure they knew of my booking before I arrived (he started at my printed voucher for several minutes). I also could not find anyone when I left, so I just placed the key at the desk. I felt like I was inconveniencing him, as he did not smile or even answer simple questions. I did not see any other guests during my stay, which contributed to the uncomfortable experience. As a solo traveler, I like meeting others! However, the bathrooms were clean and the room was adequate (slightly dirty, but with a strong fan). I would not recommend staying here if you are a solo traveler or want a bit of friendly service.

Good Accommodation on a Budget

Surrounded by trees, cheap accommodation, nice manager/owner
7.7
I like that I have to walk a little bit to get to the cottages. Bambua is near the Underground River pier/booking area and along the main road but with wide/long vacant space leading to the reception area/cottages. You will pass by verdant rice fields on the left, see the nice view of a mountain on the right, and you have to climb a short flight of stairs. The cottages are surrounded with trees and you can hear the sounds made by cicadas and birds frequenting the area. My friend and I booked a double decker bed, with no aircon, for a very good price. Sabang has no electric utility servicing the whole town. All houses/units rely on their own generators. We did not feel uncomfortable as it was cool in the area, and there was an electric fan and lights on from 4:00 P.M. until 12 midnight. I guess one can request for electric service extension for a fee. We did not need such. As we booked a room with shared bathroom, you have to get out of the cottage to get to the toilet, which may bother some. But for the price, I don't really mind. In addition, I got to see the big bats on the tall trees along the property the time that I have to leave our room during night time. I love nature so I like Bambua. Bring a flashlight and your own toiletries as they do not provide soap, toilet paper, toothbrush, etc. I always bring these items whenever I travel so it is not inconvenient for me. The couple-owner, including their kid, and their helpers were very friendly, hospitable and helpful. I will recommend this accommodation for nature-lovers and for those who would like to travel on a budget.
Charlotte M. Couples Denmark, March 4, 2015
bizarre

the location in the middle of rice fields - and the chance, thereby, to walk 10 minutes through the Sabang village to get to the beach area was a plus
6.3
Well - quite puzzling to have only young children receive the voucher, show us to the room and then that was it. There was no room service through the 3 days, no cleaning of the place during our stay. We ate at the place once - again a bit puzzling - and the staff (young children, again) seemed slightly surprised to find us still sitting there waiting for the promised dinner (served 45 minutes later than agreed) a not completely cooked through chicken with rice and curry sauce. Otherwise tasty dinner. We didn't eat there again, though. And we barely saw any personnel during our stay after that dinner. When checking out we simply left the key in the reception/bar area - nobody was there to see us off. So: while actually kind of a pleasant stay - it was also a bit of a bizarre experience.

Few nights at Bambua

Nature surrounding, use of kitchen, decent price
6
Bambua is 15 mins walking from the beach, surrounded by nicely done surroudings. It's remote and quiet with a natural feel. Restaurant is not open, but the staff is friendly and will let you use the kitchen. Rooms are clean, toilets could use keeping up. Good budget option.
Celina D. Couples Poland, January 9, 2015

Awesome Stay in the 'Jungle' at Bambua

slightly off the beaten path (8 min walk from beach), food was incredible and owners were fantastic at helping is set up tours/transportation
9.7
Had a fantastic but to short stay here on Jan 1-3, 2015. Met at the Puerto Princesa airport by a smiling Rosalie and Andre (owners/operators, speak English, French, German and Tagalog that we heard) they transported us to the Cottages (approx 1.5hrs with a stop at a viewpoint for photos) so that we could settle in. be prepared for a bit of a roller coaster ride, Andre drives like he means it and the road is quite windy. You'll arrive to short climb up the rock walkway and into the main open air hut which has the reception desk, eating area and kitchen. The kitchen is where the magic happens as Rosalie makes some amazing food! She was more than willing to accommodate the vegetarian in our group and made probably the best veggie curry soup we've ever had! we were travelling with 4 people, 2 stayed in a private cottege (queen sized bed, mosquito net, fan, bathroom and shower in the room) while 2 of us stayed in the budget accommodations (single bunk bed, small table and a fan). The Budget accommodations also had a shared area for toilets (2 stalls) and showers (2 stalls). Even with the resort completely booked I never had to wait to use the facilities. Bambua took care of organizing our permits and fees for our tour to the UnderWater River and to the Mangrove Tour, it was all included in the price for our stay. As an added bonus, Manisha (Rosalie and Andre's daughter) accompanied us to the mangrove tour and then showed us the best place to eat and get a massage on the Beach!! For under $100CDN, we got 2 nights accommodation, dinners, breakfasts, Underwater River and Mangrove Forest Tours, transport to and from PP and Andre reserved our bus tickets from PP to El Nido for us. Bambua was a fantastic stay and our group would recommend it to anyone looking for accommodation in Sabang!! cheers, Amy, Erin, Kate and Ali from Canada
Peter C. Couples Germany, December 11, 2014
Amazing stay in the middle of the nature!

The environment; the kind and caring staff; amazing Sabang itself
9.3
The place is exceptional and will provide you with a unique travel experience. You will stay in the middle of the nature and feel the real "vibe" of Sabang. The room itself was pretty basic but lovely and authentic at the same time. The staff was overwhelming friendly and caring, it really felt like home after some hours. I would recommend this accommodation to anybody who is looking for a truely unique and genuine travel experience. You will not regret it!
