Clean room, ok for the price paid, great to have coffee making facilities, friendly staff. 10 minutes walk to white beach. Not much selection of restaurants nearby; during our stay there's only one. No nightlife but suits me fine as I'm ok staying indoors. Wifi only available at the reception;however this is indicated upon booking.

The room I stayed in is quiet, good for someone like me who’s sensitive to noise when trying to sleep. The staff are very friendly and approachable. The Avocado Coffee and Pesto are my faves from their menu. I really enjoyed my stay here!

The very best place to stay to go for freedivers and people wanting an introduction to freediving. Very good accommodations for travelers on a budget. It's more of a freediving school than a hostel but all are welcome. Yoga sessions for freedivers every morning and freediving classes at all levels for reasonable prices every morning. Fundives every day. There is a long circular pool.

It's about a 400 meter walk to decent beach. It's a great beach to see the sun rise.

There is an excellent vegetarian restaurant on the premises. The menu is not extensive but it's all delicious. Try the smoothie bowl and the granola bowl at breakfast. The healthy sisig was my favorite lunch. The daily special for supper was always great. The coffee, cappuccino and so on are very good.

I stayed in a deluxe room at US$21/night. Dorm-type accommodations are available. The mattress was soft, which I like, and there was no hot water in any room. Cool showers are a cheap thrill so it's a feature, not a bug. Quiet hours are enforced but there are cats and roosters. Bring earplugs and ambien if you can get it.

I'm a cranky old white guy but I really like this place. I'd give it 5 out of 5 if there were no cats and roosters. The clientele are almost all young backpacker types but all are welcome and made to feel at home.

Stayed here for 3 nights graet place to stay away from the noisy area yet not too far away to visit Alona Beach only 10 mins by trike. Stayed in one of the cottage/huts beside the swimming pool was great lots of space and nice skylight. Nice pool and free breakfast. Ideal place for couples or if you just want a place to relax. Staff were very friendly and helpful would definitley stay again.

Me and my boyfriend have been travelling SE Asia for 3 months so Philippines was our last stop before home and this place did not disappoint. We spent 2 nights here and really wish we had time for longer! Every single staff member we met was really friendly and welcoming. The aircon in the room was freezing, which is perfect when it’s so hot outside. We stayed in the little private huts and loved them they are so cool and everything was clean. The accommodation itself offers so much activity wise, which is really good and also the restaurant onsite is so good. It’s a vegan restaurant which me and my boyfriend aren’t, but the food was outstanding. I think we tried a lot of the stuff on the menu and loved everything it was so delicious and mega cheap (get the chocolate mousse it’s like heaven). We also hired a motorbike from here which was so quick and easy to do. Would 1000% recommend anyone to come here and if we ever come back travelling this part of the world again I would come back here without hesitation.

I came to experience Freediving, The resort is very peaceful, the room is spacious and has little sitting area outside fronting the pool. I liked that they offer vegan/plant-based foods it was served well and delicious. The crew are very friendly always smiling and attentive to your needs and gives me comfort talking to them.
Our freedive coaches are amazing 💯% did learn lots plus it was really fun.
Had a blast! Thank to ate shine, angel kuya jc, debora and the rest of the team! ♥️

What a gem for the cost ... We spent 8 days as a family of 5 at the resort, and all agreed that we couldn't have got better value for money.
The staff were exceptionally friendly and attentive and really helpful. The free yoga offering in the morning is just another plus ... even though I only participated once (really easy stretch and breath).
After 2 weeks in the Philippines we were delighted to realise that Vedge Bohol (vegan restaurant) was on the premises after battling to find decent Vegan food for most of the trip. Between us we tried everything on the menu. My favorites were the Overnight Oats and Smoothy Bowls for breakfast and the Kare Kare or Vege Burgers for other meals.
NOTE to readers ... it's only vegan food available but what a great opportunity to embrace vegan food for those of you who've never done it.
For the freedivers or those interested in exploring freediving - the resort offers all the options.
Thanks Team

Small but quaint. Just don’t get room near pool as it is too close and noisy. Very quiet place for now but a K Bar opening soon so will get noisy at night. The beach is 10 minute walk and better than Alona beach. Getstreet food on main road really good and cheap buy beer across the street on main road.
