My family and I really enjoyed our stay at Rapitan di Vasay and we will choose to stay there again when we go back to Batanes. We liked: 1) Ms Yolanda's promptly replies to all my emails during reservation; 2) the location - walking distance to restaurants/canteens, public market, the BATODA (tricycle terminal), town plaza and airport; 3) the whole...

Rapitan di Visay is an unexpected surprise and an unforgettable place to stay in when I visited Batanes. Relaxing, peaceful, clean and memorable. The staff are nice, accommodating and generous. I hope to stay there again ( if I can get a slot coz they are fully booked)👍😊

We stayed in Rapitan for 4 nights while we explore the beautiful Batanes isles. I highly recommend this place for these reasons: 1. It's conveniently located near everything- bank, restos, airport and town plaza (they were celebrating Batanes Day when we were there so we were happy that it was just a few steps away because we spent our nights...

We spent a week at Rapitan di Vasay following our wedding in Makati (Manila). We were met on our arrival by one of the staff (small place but staff there 24 hours a day), who prepared breakfast for us and got us oriented. The house is right in the middle of Basco-central to everything. We had a nice room on...

I stayed in Rapitan di Vasay from 1st to the 3rd of July. I'm travelling here by myself. The staff is very friendly and very helpful! The breakfast is really good, very fresh vegetables and delicious meat with rice! The room is very clean and comfortable. It was a really enjoyable stay.

Stayed there for two nights. The management was very helpful and accommodating when we were inquiring about the details of the house, room, and location. The staff were accommodating too, as they catered to our requests and adjusted to our schedule. It's nice how they preserved the old style of the house but upgraded some parts like the bathroom and...
