In march 2015 I stayed here for just 17 nights, the staff is very friendly and accommodating and the breakfast was superb, we both were looked after very well, you can even book tours at the front desk which is a bonus well worth the stay

It has simple accommodation but is priced accordingly. The staff were very friendly. The complimentary breakfast was very nice. The location was quiet as it wasn't near all the restaurants etc but you can get a tricycle easily to these and it was 5 mins from tourist information.

Conveniently located near the airport. The food was excellent! The kind staff arranged a tour for us and the guide was very informative. The room was clean, the WiFi worked well, the TV had a good selection of channels and the aircon was cold. I will stay here again.

Walkable from the ferry port with bags, and to main restaurant areas. Stopped here before going to Loboc. Bohol was great in general. Rooms were very clean with amenities and the staff was really friendly.
