          Food was good. Fresh and home cooked meals. Staff very helpful. Really amazing place to stay. Robbie was very helpful along with Doreena in organising trips and transport back to airport. Ethos of the business is great. I really think we will come back.
          Limited breakfast options. Need new mattresses on the beds to be more comfortable. Lack of electricity, could invest in a lot more solar panels to provide all day. Wifi didn&#39;t work. No chambermaid service, wanted room cleaned now and again.

          Paradise if you’re happy to travel”

          This place was so beautiful, private beach all to ourselves on the first night as there were no other guests which was really amazing! The host was very helpful in organising all of our transport and connections so that we could get there without any troubles. The meals can be a bit pricey but I think it depends on how many people are on the island. The first night it was just the two of us and we had rice and spring rolls for 300 php which is a bit pricey, but second night we had noodles, fish, vegetables and fruit for the same price when there were about 6 other guests. The view is hard to beat and the local animals are really cute.
          We were not aware that there would be no wifi on the island so it can be hard to research your trip, the island is about 30 minute boat ride from sabang which can also be a bit hard as you’re paying 250php per person each way just to get to and from the island. There is no aircon and it is quite hot, the mosquitoes could drive you crazy too so be prepared! Overall we loved our stay but there are a few things that need to be noted before staying.

          great way to disconnect, for lovers of simplicity!”

          if what you&#39;re looking for is remote &#47; simple &#47; quiet &#47; disconnected &#47; simple &#47; paradise &#47; &quot;camping&quot; then this is a good place. However it comes with the &quot;hardships&quot; of being on a remote beach. Electricity only from 6pm-10pm (if lucky), bugs and critters, cold water showers, limited food options. But it is also extremely luxurious to jump from bed into the sea, hang in the hammocks, having a beer with other guests, explore the beaches and part of the jungle completely by yourself.... (TIP: bring own food &#47; drinks &#47; coffee for when the hosts run out &#47; do not have this; bring your own sheets &#47; (bed)bug protection)
          food options for vegetarians&#47;non meat eaters were limited and not very varied. It is a bit unclear what of food &#47; drinks is charged or is part of a dinner or so. Don&#39;t expect a detailed bill... perhaps better to settle it every day.

          Lovely secluded huts, great for couples seeking a quiet escape”

          Gorgeous location -- you have the beach entirely to yourself. The water was fun for body surfing and splashing around, but might be a bit rough for small kids. We hiked across the tide pools and rocks at low tide, which was awesome, and came back through the forest trail. The staff are really nice and accommodated our vegetarian diets for the meals.
          Due to restrictions from the Philippine government, they can&#39;t run electricity except for a few hours at night, so you can&#39;t have the fan going overnight or anything -- it can get a bit uncomfortable. The meals are also a bit expensive for what you get, but they also have to bring in all of the ingredients by boat so I get it.

          Bedbugs”

          Amazing lonely beach. Friendly local families living next to the resort. Helpful and funny, made our stay something special despite the problems mentioned above.
          The polish owner and his wife were pretty biased. Friendly and help some to polish guests, not like this to the others. The rooms were very basic and not cleaned when we arrived. On top we had bedbugs. As we reported this, they said it&#39;s just sandflies, and our own fault when we scratch the bites. Except for the food cooked by the local employees, which was very good, the offered lunch and dinner was eatable but not more.

          Incredible location, dodgy owners.”

          Location location location. This is a truly exceptional site, long golden stretch of beach fringed with palms and magnolia trees its like something out of Robinson crusoe. One of the most outstanding locations i could imagine in Sabang. Beach is pristine and full of shells and its deep enough to swim. Bonfire on the beach at night a lovely touch.
          The owners. Strange undercurrent, and being ordered to leave at 7am. Told there was only one boat to get back to the mainland (this turned out to be untrue). Staff were sweet, helpful and friendly, but the owners had a few shouting matches, so wild screaming in the jungle as i was trying to fall asleep, and then more screaming at 7am as the unsmiling woman owner verbally attacked her staff in polish. One feels there are undercurrents here that are not obvous because the owners dont seem happy. Much respect to them for getting this project off the ground, no small feat, but you cant help feeling that they think they are doing you a favour by letting you stay here, and forgetting that you have actually paid money for the privilege. Being ordered to check out at 7am felt very unfriendly. I was reminded thrice to read the booking conditions Id been sent, which i did, and which state checkout is from 8 to 9am. Despite having ordered and prepaid my breakfast i was still asked to leave before breakfast time. Owners made me feel a little unsafe there, very aware of how isolated it is and as a solo traveller it felt a bit like Lord of the Flies waiting to happen. Wish them the best in future and hope they manage to resolve their personal issues.

          Food wasn&#39;t good, small portions, no choice of meal and to be honest we had nearly the same for a lunch and dinner, and it wasn&#39;t tasty. Meybe the reason was that we were only us two in whole place.

          It&#39;s isolated which is cool, and the beach is nice, no doubt. The price is cheap, but you do have to pay for the van, boat ride, and the food you eat at the hut. It&#39;s really close to the underground river, which is the whole reason we came here. They charge you to go to the river, go back, and then charge you to take another boat to the hotel, which is past the river. It wastes about 40 minutes to an hour to go back and then pass the river to get to the facilities.
          In order to get to these beach huts, you take a 1 1&#47;2 hour car ride (which we knew about), and then you take a 30 minute boat ride, which we did not know about. After booking I received an email with a long set of instructions on how to get here, but it never directly says, &quot;It takes a 1 1&#47;2 car ride, plus a 30 minute boat ride to get to our facilities.&quot; These huts are very isolated, which can be appealing, but also be aware that if the weather is bad, you may be delayed on your boat ride and not make it back to your flight on time. We had an 11:40 am flight, and barely made it. The stay is a bit rough, and I am the adventurous type. The hut was really warm at night, and they have a fan which helps, but they don&#39;t run the generator all night so at about midnight all of the power goes off and you don&#39;t have electricity. Also, they cook meals, which is nice, but there aren&#39;t a lot of options. You eat what they make or you don&#39;t eat.

          The location was amazing! It felt like having our own private beach as there was only one other couple staying. You could hear the sound of the waves all night. I loved the simplicity of the place and the staff were so nice
          We booked for 2 large double beds but when we got there the room only had 1 double bed and a single with no mattress. However, they quickly found a mattress for the single bed. It was just disappointing to not get what we thought we had booked especially as there was only one other couple staying
