According to novelist Paul Theroux travelers don't know where they are going. True, in this case however travelers should know beforehand WHY they want to make the effort to get to GUSTAV'S PLACE, because this hotel is really situated at the end of the world! There are only 2 valid motives: to admire the sunset from an immense deserted beach,...

Lovely done resort - à la backpackers style - with a very personal and cosy atmosphere. Accommodation, but also food and drinks are priced very fairly and or of good quality! Friendly Gustav, or any of the staff members, are also happy to take you for day trips to the lovely Pandan island, which is just across.

Gustavs place is a little out of the way but it is a great spot once you get there. The beach is beautiful and the sunset stunning. We arrived late afternoon and the place seemed a little deserted but we were shown our rooms and told what time the buffet dinner would be served. We were the only guests at...

We end up staying in Gustav for one night as we couldn't t stay on pandan island. Which was great as pandan was not very welcoming, Gustav s was on the other hand much more welcoming and friendly. We were welcomed by the owner and his wife, and you can immediately feel they love the Philippines and there resort. The...

Unfortunately we spent only 3 days in this fantastic place. The cottages are isolated from everything on the big peopleless beach, is not far from a famous dive spot - the Apo reef. Exept of diving with cheerful instructor, you can walk in a small fishing village nearby with funny kids, following you everyweher and frendly natives, buy some fruites...

Gustav's place is located in Sablayan on Mindoro island, separated from the town on one side by a river and on the other side by a 20 minutes walk on a deserted large beach and a hanging bridge. This really good hotel has bungalows facing the ocean and are surrounded by a garden very well maintained. The very clean rooms...

I stayed here as part of a stopover organised by a Philippines-based cycle touring company with which my group was travelling! The owner, Gustav, is a quirky guy with limited English but his wife Irene speaks perfect English. The staff try hard but are let down by a place that reeks of "faded glory"! The very worst thing about this...

Gustavs place is far out of town, you need a tricycle to get to a river, here you cross with a small boat. It operates from 6:00 to 19:00 so having diner in town is either early or not possible. When you get there, via a cute dyke, you get the tropical island resort feeling. The place is right on...

There are 2 possibilities for visiting the town: use the small boat - by arrangement or on arrival/departure - anytime possible, or you walk along the beach within 20 minutes you are in town. As you wrote that there is nothing to do. We do organize different trips to the surroundings, as well as snorkelling and diving trips mostly to...
