Alfred an erstwhile local (Ivatan) coming back after so many years, from Melbourne.”

A beautiful place near the beach. The staff are friendly and accommodating. It may be a bit away from the commercialised and busy Basco, but offers a quite place - so Batanes in its setting, Its only a tricycle away, which can be provided by Dive Batanes. Chanarian is also good for walking or jogging and I had a great time walking up to the best view of Mt. Iraya on the road to Mahatao. Tukon is minutes away and also walkable which can provide stunning 360 degrees views of Batan including Valugan Bay and Mt. Matarem.

Hands-on Experience”

Josie and Douglas (owners) had carefully attended to our needs throughout our 3-night stay. The place has definitely exceeded our expectations, was way better than the pictures. What is unique about their location is the feeling of being able to completely immerse with Mother Nature, such as being lulled by the waves to peaceful thinking or calm sleep. Or just by forgetting about time by hanging around the balcony and rooftop deck. Yes, it was farther from Basco Town but still very accessible with a mere Php 70 tricycle ride good for 3 pax. The staff was equally excellent! They were very accommodating and went the extra mile, even helping us with lodge transfers (Batan-Sabtang), when it was clearly not their responsibility. The internet connection in the area is a working progress but for us, it only helps more with fully appreciating Basco. Nonetheless, they are currently installing LTE to ensure they are always doing their best to give every customer an unforgettable stay in the

Extraordinary the best!”

The location is great for a relaxing and away from noise kind of vacation. I appreciate the sound of the waves as we woke up in the morning because ocean is just right in front of our room. Rooms are well cleaned and stuffed with amenities, owner is from abroad so their hotel standard is pretty good! And best part, we had our anniversary in batanes. After our tour, we were surprised by their effort putting up an extra service to greet us during our anniversary stay. Rose petals on our bed, a happy anniversary sign at our door, complimentary dinner and even a cake! It was really a surprise! They’re treating the guests extra special and we felt very comfortable talking to the staff and for attending our every needs. From the airport pick up, until we arrived at the hotel, they welcomed us very warmly. It was a great stay at dive batanes!

Great place!”

We had a great stay with Dive Batanes. The room is spaceous, clean and the location is so peaceful. Cell reception is not so good though but its a plus for me because I went to Batanes to relax and not to be frequently disturbed by work and etc. Its a little bit far from the town proper but you can ride tricycle to/from or you can contact their terminal in Basco for pick-up. The breakfast is nothing spectacular but note that generally, food in Batanes are simple (unless you dine in Fundacion everytime). The staff are friendly and very helpful. The aircon is a bit old thus very noisy though and I had a hard time sleeping. Over all, it was worth my money.

Comfortable Hotel and Great Value for Money”

Great Service, Homey Ambience and Comfortable Hotel

Our stay in Dive Batanes was great. Although not situated in Basco, this hotel is in the center of both North and South Batan island. It is quiet and is a few minutes walk from Casa Napoli (one of the well known pizza places in Batanes). The hotel has a homey ambience and the food would remind you of eating at your own home. The hotel has no restaurant, however, you can request for lunch or dinner in the morning if you are eating in. They also offer activities such discovery diving (I don't know of an other hotel in Batanes offering diving), bike rentals and tours. The best thing I can say is that the staff are really accommodating and hospitable, and you can feel that they truly want to satisfy the needs of their customers.
