The rooms/huts were okay for a philippine standard. BUT we got robbed. They stole money from the rooms we stayed in. 250USD in total. And the best thing of all: they blamed us for not saying which valuable things we had when we arrived. Don't go there!
We had a very pleasant stay at Melinda's Garden. Melinda is a fantastic person and she and her team are all very kind and helpful. It was a great privilege to stay at Melinda's and to talk openly about so many things of the Philippino culture... We enjoyed particularly the presence of her tamed monkey and her owl. This garden is full of beautiful surprises! Thank you deeply for Melinda's generosity and benevolence.
Accommodation is basic but quaint. Rooms are in separate little huts and the location is great because it is in the quieter part of white beach but very easy to get around from. Melinda is lovely and is doing some amazing things with recyclables. Would definitely return
