Best stay in the Philippines!!”
Your not going to find a more accommodating host anywhere else in the Philippines. Not only is your host a great chef ( expect amazing breakfast and dinner if your order at Swiss lagoon) but your right in front of a beautiful beach. The beach is low bearing meaning as the tides change so does the beach, you can see the water come up or go away during the day and the sand is nice and soft. Your in luck your staying at the best beach hotel on the island. — recommendation is to visit the beach restaurants, they serve food and alcohol, and rent skim boards for the beach. Also through swisslagoon rent a scooter, best price you can get and the island is fair small 2 liters of gas is cheap and gets you around the whole island. You can visit caves and other beaches. —- back to swisslagoon, your room can get pretty cold so make sure to turn off A/C when you leave. The TV offers a lots of Channels and movies so nice chill nights. The bathroom and hotel overall is clean, the roof is where dinner is usually served by your host Andi and his amazing assistant. The roof has a perfect view of the beach so I recommend going during day light hours, if your looking for a Pool to the right of the beach you’ll see a big hotel, they have a beach entrance and I believe it’s 100-200 pesos for entry to their pool. You can also make friends with people staying there at the beach restaurants in which case you can go as their guest. OVERALL the stay at Swisslagoon is the best and most accommodating with access to all activities for a cheap price. IMPORTANT!! No ATM on the island so withdraw money accordingly in cebu before you go.
Stayed here for 3 days and 2 nights last weekend. We arrived early. However, we forgot to inform the hotel about it. I guess that's our fault. No one was at the hotel when we arrived. I called the number I saw in a business card inside the hotel. Luckily, my call was answered and Andi, our host came as soon as he could. He was very helpful and welcoming. He personally prepared our sumptuous breakfast with flowing brewed coffee. He immediately informed us that the electricity in Camotes Island is not that sufficient to provide for all the electrical facilities the entire day. The hotel has a generator though to work on the problem. The location is good since it is near the beach and restaurants. The room is clean and tidy as well. Andi also arranged us a scooter rental owned by his neighbor to roam around the island. The rental price is cheaper as compared to others offering the same deal. On our 1st night, I thought of drinking a beer in a windy evening. I ordered to 2 bottles of beer. To my surprise, as I reached out my payment and he handling me the beers, he told me that the those are his welcome gift.
Best stay in Camotes Islands!”
If you're looking for a place to stay in the Camotes islands, look no further. The Swisslagoon is a hotel that will make you feel right at home. There are only two rooms so it won't get noisy or crowded, and Andi (owner) and Liklik (helper) provide such an awesome service from the moment you check in to the moment you check out. Pros: 1. Ten steps away from the beach; 2. Andi's neighbour rents motorbikes so he'll arrange everything for you; 3. Andi's cooking. WOW, the scrambled eggs, pork schnitzel and spaghetti are top notch! 4. Liklik plays in a reggae band and if you're there for the weekend go see them play. For me there were no cons on my stay. We loved every minute of it! Stay there and see it for yourself ;);););)
Two Thumbs up for the Swiss Lagoon Restaurant and Hotel”
We had a most enjoyable four day and three nights stay at the Swiss Lagoon Restaurant and Hotel. We were a large family group of nine who stayed in their family cottage. The accommodations was clean and convenient as it contained a full functioning kitchen and an outside grill. The property is located on a long white sandy beach and is extremely accessible from the two ports in Camotes. The service was simply excellent. Andy, owner and GM, assisted us with all of our needs even before we got there. We had many questions about the Camotes Islands and Andy was in continuous contact with us, months before our arrival. The information he provided during this time was both accurate and helpful. While we were there, Andy helped us in arranging a circle island tour with stops at beaches and caves for exploration. His suggestions and advice was "spot-on" and we are so grateful for his warmth and generosity. Two thumbs up from all nine of us, Andy!!! We will be sure to return one day!!!
Our stay at Camotes island could't be better.”
exellent stay at Swisslgoon resort. Very easy to go to the nice beach at 50 meters. The owner and his wife are very helpful,it's difficult to be better. If you go to Camotes island , go at Swisslagoon. Very close, 4 restaurants are on the beach with good food and cheep. No problem also to rent a motorcycle for good price.
Great place to stay to see the Camotes Islands”
Santiago Bay is a beautiful spot in the Camotes and the Swisslagoon hotel is 30m from the water. Andy, the owner of the hotel is a lovely guy who makes everyone feel very welcome. He's been living in the Philippines for years and knows the best places in the Camotes. The hotel is very clean and tidy and has everything you might need. There's a rooftop terrace for enjoying evening breezes and the rooms have aircon and fans. Highly recommended.
Best Accommodation in Camotes”
Our trip to Camotes was made extra special by our stay in Swisslagoon. Andy is such an accommodating and wonderful host. He made sure that we have everything we need and even prepared a candlelit dinner for me and my wife on the last night of our stay. I told him that we really want to try their schnitzel and he went out of his way to prepare it for us even though the restaurant is closed on a Sunday. He even gave my wife the recipe for his pasta sauce. The location is near the beach and you have access to other restaurants in case you want to dine out. The rooms are clean and well kept. They have a rooftop where you can watch the stars which is what we did. We will definitely be back and will not hesitate to stay here again. Top notch service.
Visited Camotes and Swisslagoon and stayed there one week. Owner Andi was superfriendly and helpful and he also made delicious breakfast with his wife Pamela. Room was big enough. Island have its own difficulties (water, brownouts) but overall having holiday there is a must. Beach is near and its good. Also little store 50 meters away.
Super friendly Andi rocks!”
Spacious room and great breakfast done by Andi. Very close to beach and the best eating place Pietos is walking distance. This is very lovely place and it has feel of staying at friends place rather than at hotel. Andi is very very friendly and accommodating person. Will definitely visit Camotes and Swisslagoon again.
Home away from home”
Andi is the perfect host. He is responsive to emails and made great suggestions regarding my itinerary. He helped me book a motorcycle rider/guide for a reasonable rate (Shout out to kind, smiling face kuya Egie) Loved that Andi took time to "orient" me about the hotel's facilities. He is so sweet when he told me that he could be my second father while I'm in Camotes. Great guy! Breakfast was good! Location is perfect. Very close to Santiago white beach and restaurants. No complaints at all. Maybe the only thing to improve on is the wifi - weak/almost none during my first night but was okay on day 2. I'm recommending this hotel. When I return to Camotes (I have yet to try the island hopping), I will stay here again.
Great short stay”
The Swisslagoon is the best value for your money in Camotes. Great location, clean and homey rooms and the best host you can have. Andy is super friendly and is ready to help you with everything. Next time I will definitely stay again at Swisslagoon.
Great location, amazing host”
Located on the most beautiful beach of Camotes, Andi is one of those hosts that you'll remember forever. A down to earth Swiss guy that will provide you with knowledge about the islands and places to visit. He will help you with anything you might need, including bargaining the prices with local people (to rent a motorbike, for example). Swiss Lagoon only has two rooms which makes it perfect for anyone, like us, that prefers a cozy, personal place to stay. Overall, we loved the Camotes as they are still unspoiled by mass tourism. A really pleasant surprise, the archipelago and Swiss Lagoon! Hoping to go back one day.
Welcomed with open arms”
Swiss lagoon is a family owned guest house. We arrived in the evening and were made really welcome by the owner Andi.(he is a genuinely lovely person from Switzerland and runs the place with Pamela his wife). The rooms are comfortable, there are only 2 so if you want to stay here i recommend you book in advance. Breakfast is included. Andi cooks it and his omelettes are delicious. The bread is freshly baked by his baker friend.andi will help you with all your travel plans. If you take the boat from Cebu pier 1 to poro the tricycle fare to the guest house is about 150 pesos per person and the tricycle will take about 45 mins. There is a nearer port to the guest house but we preferred travelling direct from Cebu city. Coming back book your boat the day before especially if travelling at weekend. Andi will advise you of which restaurants to eat at the beach and his advice is good but do try and eat dinner at the hotel at least once. Pamela cooks dinner and it was good value and the best food we had in Camotes.if you get chance do hire a bike to go round the island. It's really beautiful and the people are so friendly. We really hope to return to this place. It was like home from home and we are thrilled to have met Andi, Pamela and Erica.wishing them all the best. Sandra and Lee. Xx
The Swisslagoon is a very nice hotel in Santiago, Comotes Islands”
The Swisslagoon Hotel is a very nice hotel in Santiago, Comotes Islands & is in a central location near the beach. Easy access to the attractions of the city & has large comfortable rooms. The owner manager Andi was very pleasant, helpful & made my stay very comfortable. I would highly recommend this hotel to my family & friends.
What stood out for me the most is the quality of service this place has. Andi, the owner, deserves more than 5 stars! He works around your budget, and clearly knows how to welcome customers well. The property is in an excellent location. Just seconds away from the beach, but not in the crowded, noisy side. You can enjoy peace and tranquility together with convenience and accessibility. The best of both worlds! This place deserves more praise! I would recommend this to anyone who would travel to Camotes Island. This resort is truly a gem.
It's very nice hotel.”
Andi is friendly and friendly.The dinner in rupeutap is really romantic and wonderful.The food he cooks is very delicious and the coffee is also the best.The hotel is clean and there are inexpensive, delicious restaurants and beautiful beaches.It was a happier trip to stay at Swisslagoon. I want to go again. I miss you. Papa😢
Good memories of Philippines.”
I stayed Swisslagoon for 3days. That time was excellent time in my Philippines travel. As soon as I arrived my home, I miss the beach and Pamela’s food. I uploaded my photos on Swisslagoon's facebook homepage. You can watch my experiences of Swisslagoon :)
Very homely and charming ”
The hotel is actually a house with two rooms to accommodate guests, and nipa huts to accommodate larger groups. The owner—Andie, was so hospitable and hands-on in taking care of his guest/s. He tries to help in any way he can, he even arranged our transportation to visit key tourist spots in Camotes. The hotel is a few steps away from Santiago Bay, which is a white sand beach very similar to that of Boracay but with less commercial establishments with about 4 restaurants/restobar adjacent to the beach.
10 meters away from Santiago Bay Beach”
The Swisslagoon is a small hotel (just 2 or 3 rooms) located a few meters away from the beach. It has everything you need, even a rooftop lounge where you can enjoy a drink or Andi's food. By the way, Andi (the owner) is just the best! Very funny and friendly guy. I would 100% recommend this place.
Two thumbs up!”
My holiday in Camotes couldn't have been more pleasant while staying in Swiss Lagoon! :D Andi was quite jovial and warm, I felt so welcomed even as I set my foot in front of the gate. The whole accommodation was quite clean -- from the entrance to the room and toilet/shower room (with warm shower!); the internet is also reliable and fast, at least for Philippine standards (lols). Food was also great -- the pasta and homemade bread (during breakfast) are must-trys! Needless to say, all these wonderful services and amenities are definitely worth every peso! :D Thanks again for the wonderful hospitality, Andi and Pamela! I definitely hope to be back soon! ;) Cheers! Fred
