Very unique and spacious cottages
Located near the pier
The resort was a bit difficult to find from the road, because it is hidden behind a long uninviting driveway with barely noticeable front gate signage. But if you walk along the beach from the pier, it only takes about 5 mins and you can't miss the distinct look of the elevate cottages visible from the beach. The cottages are very clean and well kept. The bathrooms are spacious with a hot tub and out door shower. The hot water heater for the shower worked flawlessly. There's not much to do the actual resort. The eating facility is very limited. The pool is very small, but then you go to Bantayan Island for the beach. One thing good is that the resort is located on the quieter and more scenic end of the beach. The other end of the beach is more crowded and less scenic with lots of boats parked along the shore. So if you want a peaceful area this is the resort of choice. There are only one or two convenient stores nearby. The main area with foreigner friendly restaurants and services is about 15mins walk towards town.

The place is great, probably the best on Bantayan Island. The staff is lovely, very well trained. The villas and the decoration are just perfect for a few days of peace and relax and feel very comfortable. We can highly recommend this place!

Fantastic location
Staff, location, Price.
We had a very pleasant stay at HoyHoy Villas and were impressed by the help friendliness given by the staff. The beach was great and even better it was within a stones throw.

Antique decorated villas near the beach
The design of the villas is surely nice with its colonial touch and antique decorations and the beach was a few steps away.
The price of this beach accomodation is not worthed if you would only get a nicely decorated villa without the service. During the first 2 nights of our stay we were the only guests in the resort but every time we eat our breakfast nobody cleans up the table that cups and saucers start to attract ants after lying there for the whole day. Eventually they picked up the clatter the next day when had to eat breakfast again! During the first night we would wake up from the flashes of the camera outside and noise of the resort staff who are drinking and fooling around. One of the staff member (we could not figure out which function as he strolls around in embarassing skimpy clothes doing almost nothing except for engaging in chit chats with the other female staff) played one afternoon in loud speakers some cheap techno music while dancing in the restaurant when we weretrying to relax and read. All in all the efforts in the design of the villas have been heavily overshadowed by lazy, embarassing and to the extent really unprofessional service staff working in this resort. Really left a bad taste.

WOW! Incredible! Don't Miss It!
Beautiful, Quiet, Romantic
I love this hotel. There are a handful of independent villas on stilts, where the first floor is wide open to enjoy the ocean view - complete with a couch, table, relaxing environment. Your room is upstairs with a wrap around balcony, great view, quiet, exotic. I love the bamboo enclosed shower - you have privacy, but get to enjoy showering outside. The food was great. The staff was even better. They catered to us and put up with our requests. They delivered coffee early morning so I could enjoy the morning sunrise, then we wanted a private family dinner -so they set up everything in the first floor of our villa. Love this place, can't wait to visit again - and to bring family/friends.
