The Very Best Experience”
This is our 3rd visit to Camiguin. The D & A Seaside Cottages resort exceeded our expectations. They offered us very affordable and clean accomodation in a quiet, beautiful, paradise-like setting. The pool and grounds are well maintained, and the views of the ocean and local landscapes made our stay so enchanting and satisfying. The owners and resort staff were very accomodating and made our stay a very pleasant experience. The food prepared in Annie's kitchen is well prepared, delicious and reasonably priced. Thank you Dave, Annie and all your staff for making us feel so safe, relaxed and welcome at your place. We highly recommend this place to visitors of beautiful Camiguin and we will be back again soon.
Looks like paradise”
I fully agree with the previous reviewers. D&A Seaside Cottages looks like paradise and the staff do all they can to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The place is remote, but that could be an advantage if you want to relax. And the many jeepneys or motorellas, or a rented bike can take you to any part of the island. Or just stay and relax by the fantastic and well maintained pool and eat great food for low prices at the restaurant. D&A is certainly worth every peso. However, I wouldn't mind paying a bit more to have wifi in the room and proper aircon. To have a reasonable wifi signal you have to go to the pool area (and feed the mosquitos) and the aircon makes the noise of an overloaded truck riding uphill... Anyway I had a fantastic stay and would love to come back!
Peaceful Piece Of Paradise”
Imagine waking up to the soft sound of lapping waves, song bird calls, and ocean breezes weaving through the green tropical vegetation. That is what can be expected when you touch down at D&A Seaside Cottages. Perched up high above the Blue Lagoon Marine Sanctuary the resort boasts impressive views of the sea, sunsets, and star filled night skies. The well maintained grounds are a gardeners dream complete with a wonderful pool to cool down after a day of touring the enchanted island paradise called Camiguin. With helpful and very accommodating staff looking after you every need it's a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of island hopping, perfectly suited for decompressing. I highly recommend giving D&A consideration when planning a trip to Camiguin Island. A Peaceful Piece of Paradise!
Best food at restaurant, best people own it.”
Wow, is what I would say about this seaside cottages accommodations. This is the place you want to keep going back to. It is like you are part of the family of the owners. They talk to you, help you with travel, and the personal attention is wonderful. We rented a motorbike from them too, which was very convenient. We stayed in the Cottage at the top, close to the restaurant. Breakfast was good (eggs,etc.)and included. There is no need to leave to eat any place else, because the cooks produce amazingly delicious food all day at a reasonable price. I fell in love with the grilled fish and its seasonings. Dave the owner is like your friend, willing to help you in any way. The cottage had comfortable beds, hot water showers, strong AC, and 2 separate small rooms for the bathroom shower area separate from the toilet area. This is a real plus...no shower spray can get to the toilet area. Backup Generator exists for lights and fans and Dave said another will be installed for acessories. This is important as power does go out here from time to time. The swimming pool area is beautiful and also a good pick-nick area. There is a trail one can walk to go along the rocky water area for a hike. There is no beach to swim at, so the pool is really a valuable asset. Best of all, the owners do everything needed to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. They drove us to and from Ferry area. You must call ahead directly to them for this. They even warned us of weather conditions. Thank you Dave and Ann.
Amazing staff in a hidden gem!!”
Our stay at D&A was fantastic. The owners Dave and Annie did everything in their power to make us feel at home. We were given a free upgrade to a cottage on our arrival as we were the only guests there. The lagoon next to the hotel is up there with the best snorkelling on all of camiguin!! Best place to stay if you are not too rushed for time. If we ever return to camiguin we will head straight back do D&A. Thanks guys for everything Veronika is still saying she is home sick ( referring to D&A) everyday. See you again one day. Greg & Veronika
What can I say about D&A Seaside Cottages? How about Fantastic!! The owners Dave&Annie are so nice and welcoming the staff go out of there way to make your stay like you are in your own home😄 the food is exceptional and if I wasn't married already I would see if Jing Jing would like the job:) Camuigan island is so diverse with so much to see and do but you don't have to go far as D&A is located in front of a coral garden reserve. Thank you again to all the wonderful folks at D&A seaside,
Best place we've stayed in the Philippines!”
We really enjoyed our time at D and A Seaside cottages. They upgraded us to a bigger room for some reason, and it was really nice of them! Great room with comfy bed and AC and hot and cold shower. We watched some beautiful sunsets from their pier. The swimming pool was awesome, we had great included breakfast, and all the staff were so friendly! Only thing to keep in mind is that if you don't ride a motorcycle, you'll have to rent a tricycle driver whenever you want to go somewhere, whether it's a full day tour or even for a short ride. Also, most of the restaurants are too far away, but they have their own restaurant inside so we always had good food there! To sum up, it's a very budget friendly place and we recommend it a lot!
One of the nicest Provincial hotels I have visited”
I have stayed in many small provincial hotels in the Philippines and this is one of the best. Quiet location a few kilometres out of Catarman near the Municipal Fish Market. The staff are all related to the owner and take great care of the guests. I was in 2nd Cottage and rarely needed the airconditioning as the cottage caught the cool breeze off the sea. There is no beach, but I did see people snorkelling in the harbour and divers setting off by boat. The food was great and the western breakfast very tasty. The coffee is brewed and a huge improvement on the instant coffee served in similar establishments. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel. It has good internet access by the pool and excellent mobile signal. The owners have plans to extend the internet wifi coverage. The pool is big enough to enjoy a swim and is kept very clean. The owners provide airport pickup at a very reasonable cost. In fact this hotel is great value and I came away after a few days having spent less than I expected.
friendliest place on Camiguin”
Stayed for two nights. Immediate upgrade on arrival, as our room's previous occupant had decided to stay another night. Early check-in, no problems. Lovely stand-alone cottage with a view of the coast and the small fishing boat harbour. Comfortable bed with good aircon. Minor problems attended to straight away. Excellent swimming pool, great service, awesome mango shakes, grilled fish, pork adobo. In secluded location on west side of Camiguin island, close to Catarman and Soda Springs. Hosts and staff as friendly and welcoming as could be. Very pleasant stay, highly recommended for couples, families, or solo travellers.
Two thumbs up!”
If there's one thing that will make me come back to stay at D&A, it's the owners and staff who really went the extra mile to make our stay at Camiguin truly the best. The staff at the reception were very nice and trustworthy. Kuya Joel (I think; I'm not good with names) lent us a (pink!) motorbike for a fee to allow us to tour the entire island. He also went with us and brought us to the tourist spots and accompanied us to buy Pastel. D&A also serves really great food. The free breakfast was superb, and although the food on their menu was quite pricey for the island, we still ate most of our meals at the D&A restaurant because the food was really that good! Camiguin is really an enchanting place and my time there was definitely unforgettable. Ever since I've been there, I've always recommended to my friends to visit the island if they ever get a chance, and to stay at D&A when they do so.
When we get there its so tyming coz its FIESTA!hehe. The place was so nice, the cottages so clean and over looking. Its so relaxing and you can make muni-muni there...the owner and staff are so accomodating. I love the pool and the cottages. When i visit camiguin i want to go back to d and a cottages. Thanks you d and a for accomodating us and the free dinner... love the lechon.:-)
Lovely place but far from the town”
We really enjoyed our stay in D&A seaside cottages. The staff is so nice, and even though the room is small, it is clean and comfy. It should be noted though that it's quite far from the island town centers, so it means it's a bit tricky to get your dinner outside even though you have your bike. All considered, I strongly recommend.
Island feels and tropical chills”
Remaking the classic "Blue Lagoon"! c´mon, hop on! Serene cliff area accomodation, good for relaxation and work-out lol Let´s do a little hiking! Just adjuscent to the fishport is a big rocks cliff-like area where the blue lagoon is. A great place for snorkeling or just relaxing and/or thinking. Very convinient, it feels more like you have your own small paradise piece of Camiguin. Good thing about Camiguin, the locals still do their ways of living and not relying too much on making money from tourism. In D & A, there is a small fish port where you can see how they do it. High congeniality level of the staffs always work. Very Filipino way of eating together at lunch and dinner makes me always peek in and pick up hehe P.S. Greetings to our buddy, the Gecko.
Very relaxing and enjoyable trip”
We stayed in D & A Seaside Resort for 2 nights. The owners Dave, Annie and the staff were so accommodating. The services of the staffs were very personalized. We felt that we were so pampered. The food was great. Do not be satisfied with what is in the menu. Ask for the catch of the day and tell them how you want it cooked. We had our seafood orders all grilled. The fish was so fresh and the price is so AFFORDABLE". We also had our tour arranged by them. If you are going to stay here, arrange for a pickup with the resort. It's cheaper compared to prevailing rate at the port. This is the place to stay if you want to relax and stay away from the city. Value for money.....very good. Will surely comeback.
Friendly staff, delish food, and very relaxing ambience”
Thanks for hosting us for 3days and 2 nights, D&A! It was a pleasant stay. The owner and the whole staff are very friendly. Menu is somewhat very limited but food is really delish! No big order though, but 1 order is already good for 2 or even 3 people (except for the bfast menu -only good for 1 person). We loved the baby back ribs, tinola, and ginataang manok. Ambience was very relaxing. They also offer Snorkeling activity. But if you just want peace and quiet after touring the island, or a relaxing dip in a warm pool after splashing at the beach, then D&A is the perfect place for you to come home in Camiguin!
lovely hotel and open arms greetings”
as iv traveled the philippines i came across d & a cottages, from the second i walked up i was treated as family and greeted with open arms, with good accommodation and very clean rooms. this was the best hotel iv stayed in. the bath room has hot and cold shower, rooms with ac, cable tv, free french pressed coffee any time, refrigerator, swimming pool! but the reason i stayed repeatedly was because of the staff, made instantly friends and treated as family
Amazing stay, amazing family!! ”
If you have any doubts where to stay in camiguin, dont look further. D&A is the best place I stayed at during my trip. I extended my stay twice with Dave and Annie. They are the most nicest people I have met during my travels. Annie is an amazing cook and a heart of gold and I had a lot of fun playing guitar and all the chats with Dave. The staff, especially ying and Joel are also amazing! I can't stop saying nice things about the entire experience. Annie, Dave, you are the best!!! MISS YOU ALL!
This is the second time that My wife and I have stayed at Sea Side ..and it has been one of the best times we have experienced. The resort just keeps on getting better and better and better.... The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful and we now consider them very good friends. We love going snorkeling in the beautiful and mysterious blue lagoon just a minutes walk from our room... theere is always something new to discover... also, the resort is close to some unbelievably relaxing mineral and cold springs to help cool off from the heat... The reort has a great scooter and motorcycle rental service to help as explore the rest of the island.. it has a beautiful pool... Unlike other resorts on the island , Seaside is situated in a quiet secluded place away from busy roads. We will always go back to Seaside.... :) if you want the time of your life with great friends, great location, great food... The Sea Side is the place to be... we have tried most other places on the island
remote location on a still undiscovered island”
Unfortunately did I become ill alraedy two days before my arrival at D&A. This meant that I used my three days bat this place mainly for recovering. And it could not have found a better place for that. Camiguin is obviously a beautiful island with lots to explore but because of my condition I spent all the time at the resort. At arrival I was upgraded to one of the cottages which was simple but very clean; good shower, comfortable bed,good AC. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the food at the restaurant was great and they have a fast Wifi-connection. Not to forget that the owner drove me to the airport very early in the morning for my flight to Cebu in his comfortable car for a very reasonable fee. I have to come back to Camiguin to see more of the island next time.
Fantastic time at D&A”
I recently spent 5 nights at the D&A resort, had a wonderful time. Nice friendly staff, reasonable prices, good snorkeling. Will definitely stay again actually the only place to stay when visiting Camiguin. THANK YOU VERY MUCH
