Right on the beachfront with hammocks swinging from the trees. We had a lovely stay here. Duplex was clean and spacious. My only criticism would be slow food service . But we had a lovely stay.

Really nice place. Clean and right on the beach. Great place to chill during the day, with books,games, hammocks and restaurant on beach front. Food portions are large! Really great stay.

The bungalows at this place were nice enough. The food at the restaurant was lovely, but the service was terribly terribly slow. The wifi was near non existent. Generally I found this place to be rather overpriced

The owner was very hands-on. We requested breakfast at 630am, not knowing their staff starts working at 7am. But the owner accommodated our request, she herself cooked our food! She even have nice stories about the history of the resort :)

Cottages on the beach are very nice.”
Some noise from generator and club across the street especially in back cottages. Like most places in Port Barton no electric except between 6pm - midnight. Also no hot water but good water pressure. It’s so hot in the Philippines and you get used to the cold showers. We kept our own place tiddy and asked for soap toilet paper and clean towels as needed. But I guess if you ask they will clean the room. Otherwise room is very clean upon checkin. Always hot and cold water and free coffee available which was nice.

This is more for nature lovers who can live with basic facilities. The location is outstanding and you stay few feet from the beach. Lovely place for relaxing off grid. Note - The is no power during the day and only fan and lights during nights which is almost the case in the whole town.

At the beach with hammock ”
We planned to stay their 3 nights but added some 6 more extra nights. Elsas and Port Barton overall is a nice tranquil place to hang around for a couple of days. There is a good choice of restaurants in the village and there is a home made ice cream shop just behind Elsas. Beach front huts are the best choice but their other rooms are nice as well.

Good choice for Port Barton”
It is located on the beach strip. Has a restaurant a few meter from the beach with a nice ocean view. The food is similar in selection and quality to other restaurants on the beach. Has a beutiful gardrn. Room price is good compare to other places on the beach with same quality. The room has cold shower only. Electricity is like in the entire town from 6pm to midnight. Internet is sometimes available but as in the rest of the town, very slow with a lot of interuptions. One thing you may not want to do is to order the van to leave Port Barton thru the front desk. Our van did not show up and we had to wait for the next one. I am not sure who's fault it was but something went bad with the booking.

excellent location and that's about it...”
in terms of budget accommodation min things to improve: Wi-Fi never worked. shower was rather bad. staff seemed they couldn't care less about guests. probably hired and not owners. bad booking management: they verbally confirmed we could stay for another night only to find out late at night that we actually couldn't and had to leave next day. continental breakfast was bad.

Good for a few nights”
We have stayed in one of the bungalows for 1 night. It was right on the beach, so we liked the location. The room was very dark even when the lights were on and also there is no hot water in the shower. We would’ve stayed there for more than 1 night, but there was no availability, so we found another place not far and i’m glad we did. we moved to the Bamboo lodge (it’s not on agoda) , but their bungalows were a lot cleaner and lighter (still no hot water though). Just across the road from Elsa’s cottage in a lovely cafe/bar Mabuti ! they have lovely breakfasts and good coffee ! Highly recommended ! But regardless of where you stay in Port Barton be aware of how noisy it is at night and early mornings! Cockerols, dogs and cats, loud music and other random noises!

The crew it’s rude, it depend their mood how they treat you. The room was ok, the mattress of bed are some thin.. the WiFi is horrible even in the common area. The only good thing is the location because it’s in front of the beach and in the center of town :)

Thumbs up!”
Very good resort with easy access to the beach and various tour operators. The place is very quiet and very relaxing. Electricity in Port Barton is from 7PM to 12MN only, but Elsa's has generator, and we slept soundly through the night in our fan-cooled room. One thing that can be improved is the order taking in the restaurant. Nobody approached us at our table to take our order, and we had to go to the desk to give our orders. Understandable, since we noticed that the resort only has 3 people taking and serving orders, and one even has to attend to reservations and resort inquiries. Overall, it's a very good place to stay for families with small children.

The Mainhouse ist located directly at the beachfront. Its a lovely place, nice staff, it feels like paradise. The rooms or cottages are located next to it or on the backside. While we stayed there, there was a construction taking place right next to elsas, we didnt hear anything!

Terrible service. Had to chase down staff to attempt to check in. When we were reluctantly helped, we were told to wait until other guests returned so they could juggle rooms (they had given away our "beach front cottage".) Pictures online are misleading. The nicer cottages are at the back of the property along the road, the cabins closer to the beach are dark and dingy. There is ongoing construction and roosters rule the yard in front of the cabins. Bring ear plugs!

We visites elsa's after it was recommended by a traveler we met. It's right at the beach, has a fine restaurant and is nicely kept. Of course no electricity at night because it is in port Barton, so it can get a bit hot. Towels were included and you have a nice little porch to sit at.

Port Barton - Elsa's Cottage”
2 good points for Elsa 1. Electricity is from 6PM to 6AM the following day. You don't have to worry that it will be cut short till 12MN. 2. Food Prices - they have good selection of foods with reasonable prices compared to other restaurants out there. You can have 1 good meal from Php 200 to Php 250. The room where I stayed is kinda old as it could be the first cottages when they opened long time ago. The water from the faucet is not that clean, its a little bit yellowish. Staff - they are very helpful and approachable. Overall, everything is okay with Elsa and this is located near the center area of this small place.

We booked a bungslow/cottage and got more of a verry simpel hut. New constructions all around at day time and loud generators late in the evening/ night. However the food was all right. We left after first night although we had booked for more...without any refund.

location is great, straight on the beach. bungalow are clean. staff can be a bit moody. and we had no luck coz big group of local people coming to do island hopping screaming around at 5h30, 6am, no staff to tell them no keep quiet . about food, we tried only one time and i as been very dispointed so we stop eating there. Last thing, we ask for laudry, being probably the only one that day to ask for this, they manage to lose ( i use the word lose to be correct ) some panties of my friend and obviouly noone seems to realy care when you ask them to find it. overall the place is ok and relax
