    Pros - friendly and accommodating staff, beach front, rooms were clean and comfortable Cons - a bit far away from Basco town proper and tricycles were hard to come by, very limited mobile network signal (this can be a pro if you're in the mood to get away from it all though!)

    The place was clean, but no phone signal in our room, we needed to go outside just to receive call and text.. they didn’t have an elevator and they assigned us in the 3rd floor. The food at the restaurant was expensive and it wasn’t extra ordinary.. If I’d ever go back to batanes i think I’ll stay in basco center. But over all, it was ok..

    I love the set up; instead of flowers we’re edible VGs. that made it so beautiful. Garden lovers like me really appreciate the beauty of it. The food are too salty; make it a bit less saltier and let the individuals used the salt and pepper shaker.

    Great place to stay in Batanes”

    Clean, spacious enough and the staff are approachable, the food was also good. The only downside was it was 2km away from the town center, if you don't want to walk, you can take a tricycle ride to town for 50 pesos (1 USD) per person.

    The room is very clean. They usually make up the room every morning then give you complimentary sachet of shampoo and toothpaste and 1 soap bar, everyday. The restaurant is very clean too and offers different dishes. They cook the food as you order it so you know that it is fresh. The BUFFET breakfast is very good, they usually have rice, scrambled egg, 2 variety of meat(fish, pork, beef etc.), soup(champorado, congee, sotanghon etc.) and they also serve unlimited brewed coffee and tea. The people that works there are very attentive and always there to assist us if we ever need something. They also helped us in booking our tour around batanes. Overall, we had a great vacation there and will surely book a room again in amboy when I return in batanes. Dios Mamajes!

    The best hospitality Batanes Offers”

    Our initial flight schedule was Dec 9-12. But our airline moved it to Dec 10-13. I asked Agoda to help me if the hotel booking can be transferred to the new date since our arrival is dependent on the flight. Amboy hotel gladly rebooked our stay without extra charges. They even picked us up at the airport. Upon checkin the staffs were so accommodating. the place was quiet and very relaxed. the food was good. though as what batanes is known for "no-signal" kind of place, this establishment put signs on the areas with great signal. how cool was that... another thing was when we checked out & went to the airport, we found out that our flight were cancelled due to strong winds & was rebooked the following day. Amboy accomodated almost 50% (rough estimate) of all the affected passengers & prepared sumptuous meal for all of us. (Paid by the airline of course) But this was the first hotel out of all my travels that the staffs & management was this accommodating. Thank you Amboy!

    Clean Hotel and Friendly Staff”

    It was clean and comfortable, we got our money's worth. The food, we were satisfied, you can request the staff to hand pick vegetables from the Garden and have the chief cook this for you. Nothing fancy or hotel-standard, but it was all home-cooked, easy on the palate. We have no complaints. Location, by the seaside, they provide shuttle and airport transfer. Also the Hotel has a generator that ensures the guests have electricity all day (considering there's rotating brown-out in Basco).

    cleanliness, friendly staff, the sea just across the hotel

    Everything ok except hotel does not honor senior citizen card which is required under the law (20% discount for food). Also breakfast did not have fruits or even pineapple juice would have been ok. Undertandable as fruits are not grown in the area and very expensive. I will recommend hotel to my friends .

    Hometel is what it really is. ”

    What we (mother and I) liked about Amboy are: comfort - clean rooms, home cooked meals served on time, welcoming staff, close proximity to the beach though far from the city center, well-lit vicinity

    It was comfortable, we got our money's worth. There were only the two of us when we were there so it's like we owned the house 😃 but, it was all good. The food, we were satisfied. Nothing fancy or hotel-standard, but it was all home-cooked, easy on the palate ... We have no complaints. Location, I prefer this to the one by the seaside, they provide shuttle and airport transfer anyway ... The airport was just 10 minutes away. :)

    Best b&b in Batanes, in our book”

    Friendly & attentive staff (and owner), good location (along the main highway, and close to the beach), clean & affordable

    I really wanted to stay at Fundacion, but it was way above our budget. We were there to attend a wedding, and not for honeymoon, so we really didn't mind staying in a less romantic place. So the next best thing was Amboy's. And we didn't regret it at all because although it's really beautiful in Fundacion, you can't beat the convenience at Amboy's. It's right by the highway and very close to the beach. It also has wifi in the rooms (although quite intermittent -- which is standard in all of Batanes) vs Fundacion where wifi was only available in the office. Best of all, the staff was very friendly & attentive, and the owner, extremely hospitable. When we left, I thought i left my camera in the room so I had to wake up the owner at 6 in the morning to check. She was so gracious about it and immediately asked her staff to look for it all over the place. Once I told her that I'm not sure if i put it in our check in luggage (which i could no longer access), she didn't even mind and told me to text her if i find it as soon as we reach home. We also crashed her birthday party by chance coz we were walking to our room across the garden where her staff threw her a birthday party, and she forced us to join in on the festivities. I really really love this place and would recommend it to all my friends. :) my only issue was that the blankets were too thin and the door to our room wouldn't close properly, but the owner already said she'll have this fixed. :)

    The staff are great!”

    They will ask you of your airline and time of arrival as soon as you book them so all the while I thought that they had already arranged everything. When we arrived, they picked us up, great! But when we got to the hotel the receptionist told us that there's still someone in our supposed-to-be-room and they won't be leaving until before lunch time so we had to wait. The guests before us were able to go to their room right away. I told her that we would like to rest before the tour starts and that's when she told me that the check-in time is really at 2pm. I got disappointed and confused because I don't understand why they had to choose a room that's still occupied when they know our arrival time. Setting of expectations I guess. Limited wifi but that's in the whole island so it's not their fault. Other than that, the staff are great, friendly,accommodating and polite. It's beach front. They have a restaurant,cable tv,hair dryer,make-up room service and airport transfer.
