We stayed here for 4 night. After we arrived we wanted to take a shower, but something broke due lack of the equipment (told by the plumber who fixed it). Off course it can happen, that was not a problem, we could take a (cold) shower at the shared bathroom. They couldn't find it the same day. And it was...

The place has potential but is not very well maintained. The beach is great and the option for free kayaks and refill of water is very nice! However, the pool is not clean at all. I thought it was great to have a pool but it really wasn't nice enough to get in. I booked the beach front bungalow for...

Swimming pool, nice appartment, water refill, nice owners/employee, great view, in front of the beach ... everything was perfect there. No AC but ventilators were enough. Nice restaurants on the other side of the road.

i like it here. it's so picturesque. the view is wonderful and the surroundings are clean and tranquil. just bring a book with you and chill on its hammocks and you'll experience true bliss. It's perfect for family getaways and beer vacations with friends too

Been here 2 days ago and the experience is so good. The beach front cottage is fully equipped with the basic necessities (stove, fridge, water, coffee, utensils etc. ) All you need is if you are on a budget is go to a nearby market to buy some local produce and you can cook it or if you want you...

Because the bungalow for 2 with aircon and cable TV (2200 pesos) wasn't available we stayed for a couple of days in the beach front bungalow with (3) fans for 4 persons (2000 pesos). But in Siquijor, facing the sea, there is no need of TV really as the spectacle is outside and fresh March air going through the room...

We stayed in this place twice. The first time was in Jan. 2016 with my husband for our wedding anniversary. We enjoyed the place that we decided to bring our daughter later that year. If you want privacy and peace this is the place to be. The accommodation is like a mini house. We have a small kitchen, refrigerator, free...

We tried first one of the more famous resorts in the islands but they tried to rip us off since it was "off season." The staff at The Bruce were able to accommodate us in such a short notice. They were able to provide us with an extra mattress and pillows as needed. We got a beach bungalow and the...

My husband, our toddler and I stayed in their standard room for 2 (fan room). It was spacious and clean. An electric kettle with a couple of mugs and coffee sachets were provided. We barely used the electric fan because it was already cool and not humid. Oh, since our room was part of a row of rooms, there were...
