    Worked a Charm!”

    Stayed 14 days while diving Malapascua and Celtis worked perfectly for us. Room cleaned daily, good water pressure, lots of shelves for organizing belongings and a room safe. Excellent location to access the main market, the dive shops and main beaches all in less than 10 minutes. Generally quiet and as we were using a fan in the evenings, excellent for getting a good night's rest. Caretakers were friendly, helpful and made us feel at home. When you are doing a longish dive vacation, the last thing you want to worry about is your accommodations and the folks at Celtis truly took away any of our concerns.

    We spent 2 two nights in Celtis resort, the resort is 10mins walk away from the beachfront. Rooms are big and well maintained with big bed. AC works well. The caretaker is very friendly, warm, helpful and loves to chat. My girlfriend really enjoyed her company😊 Our room were made every morning, this is something we hardly see these days in most hotel services. The thing I like most is coming to the bar to watch television with cool sea breeze cooling you after hot day out. The resort doesn’t serve meal but don’t worry. 3mins away is a food market with almost all local delicacy- fresh fish, crab, pork, fruit smoothies, you name it. My girlfriend and I are a bit fussy about where we sleep but we did not regretted staying in Celtis resort.

    I stayed 10 nights at Celtis and my experience was very nice! The couple who run the resort are really nice, always smiling. The room is clean, the bed comfy and the location is quite good. You're close from everything by 5 minutes walk and far from the beach noise. Also, there's is nice really to relax, where they put a Hamac so that's pretty good also! I would recommend the Celtis Resort to anyone!

    We just LOVED our stay! Run by a wonderful family that make you feel so welcome . It is in the middle of the Island, but it is an easy walk to wherever you may want to go and very peaceful . Rooms are basic but modern and clean. Breakfast was basic but good.everything was kept imaculate,from the rooms to the surrounding grounds. A great place to just relax, a sitting area with a hammock was very inviting to just laze away. The family that run Celtis are just so sweet and friendly. Would I stay here again?.....In a HEARTBEAT I will be BACK! Wish we could have stayed longer.

    Clean. Friendly Staff”

    Celtis is hard to find especially if you arrive at dusk like we did due to our bus breaking down en route from Cebu. The paths on the Island are narrow in some parts and it is kind of like a maze. When we arrived we were given a warm welcome. Our room was very clean and spacious. We had a fan which was a bit noisy because the first setting didn't work. Also our door was difficult to open and close and just needs to be sanded down where it is sticking. Had to climb out of the window in the morning to shoulder the door open from the outside! There is not much to do if the weather is not good. We enjoy snorkelling but it was not particularly good off the Island. We are currently in Moalboal. Much better here for snorkelling right off the beach and nightlife. Price of accommodation and restaurants is also better.

    We stayed here for 2 nights. The room was neat, tidy and very spacious. Staffs are very much accommodating and attend to your needs with high sense of urgency. Location is about 5 minutes to the beach front which is good for travelers who want peace. What I loved here is that it is about 2 mins walk to what they called "mercado" where you can buy great food at a reasonable and affordable price. I hope rooms as well will be equip with televisions for other means of entertainment just in case you get tired of using the internet and exploring the area :) Over all I will give 5 stars for this hotel and will recommend this to my friends :)

    The place is just 5 minutes walk from the beach and is near the market where you can buy stuff such as food and some necessities. They have really good wifi which is the main reason we stayed here as I need to do some work. This may be the only place the provides stable internet connection as it’s a small island.

    Clean room, friendly staff”

    The hotel is a 5-10 minute walk from the pier. The hotel staff were friendly and showed me to my room. The room is very spacious and clean. The aircon works well. Room is basic but fine. They have a curfew for guests coming to see you and all have to leave by 22:00. They close the front gate after 22:00 but not lock so you can still come to your room after a night out or to go to your early morning dive. There's hammocks around the ground to chill in and the wifi at the hotel is good. I had one of the staff come into my room whilst I was asleep during late afternoon which was strange, they said it was to clean my room but the time they came was after 16:00. Overall I liked my stay and would go back. There's a market within a minute walk and the beach is 5 minutes walk away but you need to know the small side roads to get there (can ask the locals the way).

    Super friendly, quiet place.”

    Room was nice, breakfast was included and the staff were always so willing.

    First of all, not a resort, a collection of rooms in different sized buildings on a patch of land. Had to get that out there. Second of all, go for a room with air con. We had a fan in our room and had 2 sleepless nights due to the heat. It was warmer inside than outside due to the concrete building absorbing heat during the day. We couldn't have our window open due to security concerns and opening the door for a while let all the bugs in. Talking of insects, when we checked in we found an ants nest inside the bamboo chair by the desk. When we asked for bug spray (there were ants everywhere, we couldn't even put our bags down) and started spraying the room, other bugs came out from hiding too; spiders and cockroaches. The room was clean, modern and comfortable don't get me wrong, it's just the climate I guess. Breakfast was OK, the staff were happy to accommodate what you wanted and at what time. The staff were so friendly, even offered to let us have the motorcycle for the day for free (we declined) but still gave us a lift back to the ferry port on check out. However, housekeeping didn't service our room between our two nights stay even though we asked to get some more toilet paper before we left for the day and even left them with our room key. We had to then collect new towels etc from the reception upon our return. Strange, because on check out they had stripped our room clean within minutes after we handed back the key. All in all, a good stay, but wish we'd booked air con and wish the housekeeping had paid us (and the room) more attention (we were 2 of 4 guests staying there at the time!) Cannot fault the friendliness of the reception staff though.

    Excellent”

    Really well located for the market and a short walk to Bounty Beach area. The family here are just wonderful and so welcoming. I had a basic fan only room. It was very clean and the sheets were changed every other day. My only complaint is that the screen on the window didn't lock, so when I was not in the room I had to ensure the window was closed. It made it very stuffy as I was usually out all day. It would have been good to be able to let some air in during the day. Otherwise I had a very lovely stay and would definitely stay again.

    A nice surprise”

    Rooms are large. Shower and toilet are separate room, which was a nice surprise as most showers are in the same room than the toilet and everything gets wet. Location is good. They do not offer any sort of food or drinks (not even water bottles in the room or snacks) but everything is walking distance, so it's easy to go out. The staff is friendly and accommodating.
