Amboy is home away from home”

My family and I loved our stay! It is a bit far from the town center of Basco, but my mother requested for a place near the beach that offers buffet breakfast, so we booked Amboy Hometel. We didn't bother with the distance. Amboy is located in a quiet side of town (although the whole of Batanes is quiet compared to where we are from) near an elementary school and a few other lodging places like it. My brothers and I were able to walk around 20 minutes to the town center and we enjoyed the scenery along the way. The food was in the restaurant was good--less MSG and artificial seasoning, which characterizes most of the food in Batanes. It's good for the health and a way to let the digestive system rest. They also have a backyard vegetable garden, which my parents loved. We initially booked a family room, but got upgraded to two rooms near the beach because of renovation works. Staff are courteous and friendly, not a surpise as Ivatans are well-known for their warmth.

Book at Agoda to get discounts! It’s expensive to book directly but here on agoda they give discounts 👍🏻 + place is not in the middle of town but is in the middle of the island so pickup is easy for North or South tour + very quiet and serene, beach front + big clean rooms, lots of hangers in closet + very nice bathrooms with bidet, complete toiletries and hotel slippers + kind staff, easy to talk to, very accommodating + they have board games at the tambayan areas + they sell paintings for local artists + you can buy food outside and have them cooked in the resto for a small fee + includes breakfast daily + free airport shuttle - there’s 200MB free wifi for 4days but it’s very slow, but that’s just the whole island i guess

Beach front, great breakfast”

We really loved amboys not only because of its location but also the hospitality that the staff showed us. Amboys location is beautiful since across it is a beach front. Might be to cold to swim but you get to have a marvellous view with just a few steps away. There’s free breakfast every morning served at 5am. They serve such delicious breakfast. Very satisfying. Thank you amboy staff for such a pleasant stay. Would definitely recommend this. EVERYONE, book this place for your trip to Batanes

Great stay in this hotel. Staff are friendly and helpful and customer service is smooth.

Indeed you’ll going to have an enjoyable stay in Batanes if you will be lodging in Amboy. Food is great. Staff are very attentive and courteous. Wifi connection is a bit challenging but we managed. Beachfront is a plus. Waking up with a sea breeze. Indeed a wonderful stay! Definitely will recommend this hometel!

Our room was not yet ready since hotel guest are still staying there, so the staff gave us another vacant room si we can rest. I truly appreciate it. Breakfast is also very good special,y their tapa.

We had the experience to walk to the town, because we walked and hoped a tricycle will be along the road and stop. But nothing, after 40 minutes we arrived the town proper. It was a good walk and we don't want to miss it. The tours of the hotel going around in Batanes by van were well organised, thank you. Batanes is a good place, quiet, less traffic and clean.
