    Rats in rooms and the very rude owner”

    When we came, WiFi didn't work and they couldn't check our reservation. We received a room with the private bathroom, but we weren't sure if it's correct so we reported it to reception. The lady was really nice to us and she allowed us to stay there, because they hadn't many guests at that time. The night was terrible. There was a rat, it ate our food, destroyed also the backpack and trousers. We couldn't sleep all night because we heard it trying to eat more our things. Next day when we wake up the owner of this place came back. She started to shout at us that Agoda hasn't sent her our reservation instead of good morning. We showed her our booking and payment confirmation but she continue to be very rude and primitive. She can't even let another person to finish the sentence. It is the worse "customer service" I ever met. Finally we showed her a confirmation also at her phone. Then she started to shout at us that we are in the wrong room. I tried to explained her that we spoke with reception about this issue yesterday but she didn't listen. We agreed to change the room immediately (instead of a trip which we plan). We packed everything and another lady showed us a new room. Then again the owner came with shouts and a problem to us(!?) that this is not the right room. I am the client, how can I know that? Finally they showed us the third room when we spent the second night. The rat was also there. She want us to pay some additional money, but it was not out mistake. To sum up, the view was amazing and Debbie is a lovely and helpful person, but I can not recommend this place because of the exceptional rude owner and rats. If you can, choose different place.

    Basic accommodation but glorious views! ”

    If you brave the 500 metre trek up a rocky and muddy path (see note below) and forgo such frivolities as flush toilets and electric fans (or even electricity apart from a few hours of noisy generation each evening) you will be rewarded with one of the finest sea and mountain views in the Philippines! Note: The resort had a tricycle, but responses to communication were haphazard. If you haven't been able get an assurance of a pick up, and you arrive late you will struggle to find a tricycle and you may wish to leave luggage in the adjacent restaurant and go and get assistance - you can't miss Blue Bamboo if you follow the beach south from the pier. Strong footwear and flashlight advised. Room tip - best views are from the highest cottage for obvious reasons but only for the fit! The end cottages on the lower row are nearly as good. The big beach front cottage used to be favorite but its increasing age and the new higher fence and abandoned beach cottage in front, are negatives.

    Dean (the manager) was most helpful. He made is feel like we were home. The room was simple. We got what we paid for. It was reasonable priced. The view of the ocean was awesome. Each meal was gone cooked to order. All in all if you want a simple basic inexpensive place to stay then you found it.

    How to recharge your mind/body ”

    The hospitality of the owner is the best !! My flight was cancel so I arrive one day later, they totally understood and roll over my booking. Once arrive (after a small walk alone the sea from the center) I straight away feelt like welcoming by a friend !! During that day I was feeling little bit sick and the owner check on me all day, bring me some food, offer me to go to the pharmacy ... yes you will not have the WiFi, yes the electricity is on a generator so stop at 10pm, yes the water is limited, yes the cottage are really simple. In parallel of all of that you will have an superb view on the sea and garden, you will be in the calm of the forest, my cottage and bed was clean. I seriously recommend this place, I was feeling in peace there ! I also recommend you to have some food, he is a really good chef and if you are interstellar about cooking, he will be happy to show you some Philippino speciality! Thank you again for your hospitality 👌

    Horrible service”

    We arrived at Sabang around 10pm(w/c we notified them ahead) thru a cab we rented for P1500 from the City. The cab cant pass thru the small, rough, rocky and muddy road to the resort so the driver just walked to the resort(as we wait infront of the wharf), advised one the resort's staff that we've arrived and explained the road situation and ask if he can pick us up. We've waited but no one came so we've decided to just chk in on one of those lodges nearby. After our UR tour, we went to the resort and advised them that we will be consuming our 2nd night stay and we need some help in getting our stuff back at the other lodge but again no one came. The owner did not even talked to us when we see her at the property and maybe ask us what happened. We just spent the night there and left early. There were no fans in the rooms, though mosquito nets are provided. ONE OF THE WORST ACCOMODATIONS I'VE EXPERIENCED IN MY TRAVELLING LIFE.

    The internet site looks impressive but the actual site is disappointing. We checked in then after seeing the place, we decided to look for another place. Agoda should not include this on their list of cottages.

    A place to sleep - no electricity, no wifi”

    If you have to stay overnight this is probably the cheapest option in town. Due to the fact that there is no power plant in town, there's no electricity! There are a very few generators in town operating a few hours a day in the evening. But you won't have internet access - neither through wifi nor through mobile data. So make sure you've got your gadgets fully charged when you get here. The hostel offers nothing but a bed to sleep. There's no hot water or any kind of comfort. So if you don't feel comfortable with that I don't recommend to stay here. For everyone else it's the place to be! It is definitely recommended to stay overnight in town to avoid the tourist invasion in the morning. Catch the first ride to the underground river and you'll have an experience you'll never forget!

    Dont go here”

    The owner was really unfriendly, rude even. The room looked promising on the outside but it was terrible. No toilet paper, no towels, no flushing toilet, the dirt fell from the ceiling on top of us, through the mosquito net (which had holes in it, just like the sheets). Near to no waterpressure from the shower. Also, location is terrible as it is far up a dirt road where there is no access for vehicles (so we walked with our heavy backpacks all the way). There are much better places along the other side of the wharf, because this is not even worth $5. We had 3 nights there and just left after 1 night.
