Very basic accommodation

Near establishments, very affordable rate
The place is about 700-800m away from the port and 600-700m away from Batobalonos Street where bars and restaurants are located. Rate is affordable: Originally, I booked the fan room. When I learned that they still have a vacant aircon room, I just paid the remaining balance. The room is quite big. Good for 2 persons. What I didn't like was the toilet. The toilet bowl, though flush-type, has rust stains and was too noisy. It kept on filling itself with water. The water from the faucet was dirty! Rusty water was coming out though it became clear after a few minutes.

not in cebu city but nice place
notice this is not in cebu city centry, it is in bantayan island, very far away from the cebu city centre, not many tourists in this island so it is not as busy as boracay, but we are satisfied.

No electric generator and invaded by ants

The personnel are very helpful and location is good but there are a lot more negatives than the good things
The first thing that surprised me was 500 peso cash deposit at check in. Some 3 to 5 star hotels has this policy and they hold deposit by taking your credit card number but i never experienced "cash deposit" by a overrated 1-star bungalow cottages. Don't expect soap, shower gel etc., but expect millions of ants. I asked them to spray pesticide but each time I opened food, ants raided them before me. The garden is nice but houses all the ants and bungalows are very accessible to ants, they need to insulate better. There was electric and water outage, facility has no generator. I slept whole night without AC or fan, lucky that it was not a hot day. Personnel very helpful and kind, you can walk from the ferry, wifi works near the front desk, price is good.

My stay was generally quiet and restful.

Quiet, friendly staff and nice garden.
My stay was good enough for the price.

Great location,budget accomodation!

Great water pressure,cold airconditioner,well laundered sheets,cable tv
Bantayan Cottages is a quaint little nook in the beautiful island of Bantayan in the town of Sta. Fe. It offers quiet relaxation eventhough one is on a tight budget. The cottages are quiet old but well maintained. Everything is clean. The sheets well laundered. The staff are helpful and accomodating. Due to their lack of a restaurant within the vicinity, the owners of the resort would offer the use of the kitchen in the main house. They are also willing to do a pick up from the port, just inform them before hand. There are lots of eateries down the roadside and it's only a 5 minute walk to the beach and 10 min walk from the local market where you can find the restaurants or buy fresh seafood to be cooked.

nice location simple rooms very basic

has air conditioning
downside is about 500 meters away is disco / karioki bar music that goes to about 3 /4am and the noise is heard everywhere makes very hard to sleep it vibrates thru the room and it affects most of the hotels in the area
Travel tip: take ear plugs
Levan K. Solo travelers Russia, July 24, 2012
Very cheap cottages for backpackers.

Nice staff
Not very good location, far from beach. Rooms are quite good and clean for this price. No hot shower, but u don't need it, cause it's hot outside. I was really surprised, cause old air-conditioner was working quite good! It was low season when i was on island, so i think i could get better place to live for this price, right on the beach, nut in hight season this is a best place for cheap staying. It was so noisy at night. They have some kind of disco, or something like that for local people, next to this cottages, so u can't sleep until 3 A.M. P.P.S. They bring coffee every morning :)
