VIEW-TIFUL PLACE. VIEW-TIFUL PEOPLE.”
This place wouldn't be as beautiful as it can be without the staff. They made my short vacay the best to date. This place got a rating of 8.4 in Agoda. Before booking, some of the guest reviews which I read were: They received "disgusting treatment" from the staff, while most commended them "being nice and friendly" while providing an "excellent service". Nevertheless, I booked it, packed my bag and went straight ahead. The lesson? Other guest's experience maybe different from yours. Don't judge the place/staff before personal contact, it's part of the adventure you'll meet head-on. For me, staying here is the best decision ever, 6-hour trip (that includes riding a bus, a ferry, and a land rover) is all WORTH IT. P.S. There are 3 rooms available. No one rented the two rooms on the same day, so I got the pool all by myself.🏊‍♀️ P1,840 and the place is yours! Fantastic, baby!

Short stay but serene and memorable”
Pros: The place can only accommodate small no. of people, so if you happened to book on an off-peak season just like us, you will almost own the place during your stay. We had the Dolores Villa for an affordable place via Agoda. Cons: We were not able to enjoy the beach area down the villa. I'm not sure if it was due to rainy season or high tide, so we had to go to Bantayan Island to enjoy the beach. I also had unpleasant encounter with the owner, sorry to say, when we had the booking via Agoda and it's regarding both parties' agreement on the rate of rooms, which I think I had nothing to do about given that I had the villa at an affordable price. Perhaps this should be addressed by the latter, as to prevent ranting of owner to the customers, just like what happened to us. But all in all, we enjoyed our time with our kids at Kandugyap.

Overrated”
Before arrival, I already informed accommodation that we would arrive at 6am. When we arrived at Sta fe, I texted we just arrived. As I did not see any Kandugyap shuttle, I advised them that we will go to the nearest carenderia to eat quickly while waiting. Then she replied this - "Sabi ko kasi mgtxt pag nasa hagnaya po". In english, the accommodation replied - I told you to text if you are in hagnaya. Then upon check out, 5 in our group need to check out early so I advised reception that, and that the rest of us will be staying out until check out time. The other crew commented - "check out namo 11:30 AM maam para makalimpyo nami" (Check out at 11:30 AM Maam so we can clean already) . JUST WOW. Breakfast is also late even if we pre ordered the day before and advised it to be served at 6-7AM. I've been to many accommodations with the same or cheaper rate but still service is top notch! Thanks for making me realize that great service and communication are what i value the most.

Thank you for letting us know of your observation, i have reprimanded Grace on that... But as to pick please be informed that we dont normally pick up guests earlier than the check in time at 2pm because there are still guests checking out before check in time and we only have one driver... that’s why i txtd you earlier to inform us if you are in hagnaya so that we can prepare... People look at anything in different perspective, im sorry that we fail on your expectation...

Awesome place to relax”
The place is small which I find it better as if it is your own rest house. The view from the infinity pool is amazing. The room is clean and everything inside is perfect. They only serve breakfast meals and it’s delicious and served with excellence. The resort doesn’t have a restaurant so you have to rent a tricycle if you want to eat different meals. I love the way their staffs attend to the needs of their guests and they are genuine. I will definitely choose this place again.

Nice place but bad treatment”
- The House and especially the Dolores villa is definetely tastefully designed and well kept up/clean. Sadly the service spoils what COULD be a superb experience. -Breakfast is just Filipino option and quite small size. Very avaricious. - regrettably, the personal are just housekeepers who do their cleaning job good but thats it. Communication due to non existing English is extremely difficult. No welcome or service mentality. After a tiring journey our first welcome words were: "Voucher!" -Even more sadly the owners seem to care even less about the guests. Quite on the contrary, if there is a problem, it is communicated through the poor housekeepers. After renting a Kayak from them and in the middle of the sea, the paddle breaks due to low quality. Instead of talking to me directly i was told throug the housekeepers i had to pay for it. After refusing and phoning to the owner lady the words i got were " I will call the police". Just DISGUSTING treatment of guests.
Reviewed May 07, 2018
When the staff told me that the paddle was broken, you were willing to pay at the start... But when you were informed of the price you flared up.... If you know handled it properly it wouldnt break that easily... You as a guest was not also behaving, you couldnt just shout at anyone just because of that. You are in our country, in our place.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone who's coming to Bantayan. The only downside is that it's a bit far from the "mercado" or strip where all the action is, but as long as you rent a motorcycle you'll absolutely be fine! The free breakfast was amazing, the place was very peaceful and the view was to die for.

Awesome Place”
The place was nice and not crowded. Clean rooms. They have their own beach where some of the scenes in the movie camp sawi was shot. We just had a problem with one of the staff. She let us checked in early but a few hours after getting in the room, she advised us that there is a charge per hour for early check in which we were not informed. We talked to the owner and agreed that we will not pay any additional as we should have been informed before getting in the room. The staff even lied that she advised us about the charge beforehand. Upon check out, the staff didn't let us go without paying the extra charge as she said it will be charged to her. Can't take the hassle of calling the owner again and wasting more time as we are trying to catch the next ferry going back to Cebu. The staff didn't even say sorry or admit her fault and even lied just to take the blame away from her.

Perfect view”
My husband was very hesitant when I booked this place because it was very far from the resort where we plan to stay during our first day. I heard about this place in the movie Camp sawi and when i looked it up in FB, the pictures were amazing and the reviews were exceptional though there was one review about not perfect for family with young children because there are no restos nearby except for the pizza place which is just 5-10 mins away. But what the heck, (i love the view based on the pics) so we booked for an overnight stay. When we arrived, we were damn speechless.... home away from home. The place was perfect like you get to exeperience living in your own rest house for a day. From the swimming pool down to the beach. Yes, it's nothing compared to Kota beach or other beaches in Sta. fe but OMG the view! The sunset, the sunrise it makes everything worthwhile. My kids enjoyed it so much that we want to stay there for a month! and if you are really a beach bum P Paradise beach is just 5mins away which is already a bonus. Their staffs were great and to Kuya the driver. If you want to unwind and relax then this is the perfect place.

I had mixed feelings prior to staying at Kandugyap based on some reviews I read. Seriously, do not let them sway your decision. You MUST stay here. This small house by the sea stole my heart. The room is nothing luxurious but it is clean, decent sized and has A/C. The breakfast each morning was delicious and the staff is incredibly accommodating. They are willing to help your arrange rides/island hopping/etc. My fiance and I loved how small Kandugyap was. There are only two other rooms for rent, making the place very quiet and personal. The majority of the time we had the entire pool to ourselves and the small beach/cove. If you are up early enough, before the tide comes in, there is fantastic snorkeling right outside off the property. Kandugyap is slightly further from town that other accommodations but that is exactly what we were looking for. You can take a motorbike or tricycle into town in about 5 minutes for about $1 USD.

Home Away From Home”
If you want a perfect staycation, this is the place to be. I traveled to get away from the busy city life and this was just the answer to it. It's almost like a private resort just for you. The place is picture perfect where you can have a total escape from the noise of the metropolis. Though it's a bit away from the town proper (which you could actually rent a scooter good for 24 hours), the location is great for a cozy and silent getaway. It's a few meters away from this nice pizza resto and the ruins. The food for breakfast were sumptuous. The staff are very accommodating. We chat with them like we've known them forever. They see to it that we are very comfortable with our short stay. I would recommend this resort to you guys who want to have a great rest for a week. (They also have a free shuttle transfer when you're on your way back to the port)
