        A very humble abode”

        The Cebuano hospitality resonates on this resort. Ate Gigi and her family has been very helpful and ensures that the guest needs are being attended to. The place is clean and has basic ammenities (ac + bidet + hot/cold shower + wifi), couple of steps away from the shore. Around 5 minutes away from Santa Fe center via motorbike which you can rent for 300/day. You can tour the whole Bantayan Island in 5 hours. I highly recommend this place for travellers who wants to step out of city's hustle and bustle and do a laidback stay for couple of days.

        Best Place to Stay in Bantayan”

        The place is very cozy and the best part is their staff, Tita Trinidad was the best host! She was so accommodating and friendly. She took care of us the entire stay. Wifi is a little weak inside the rooms, but who needs wifi when you have gorgeous view, the beach and a lot of things to do and discover in Bantayan. :)

        Their staff is very accommodating, tho we just stayed there to sleep and shower then go around the town all day. But whenever we got the chance, we talk to then especially Ate Giging, when you saw her walking around the resort, she will immediately approach you and ask if you need something.

        If you are travelling on a budget, then this place is for you. The staff are very hospitable and friendly, specially Trinidad. The place is good for relaxation as it is beach front and the wifi is strong. You can even work from here if you are a digital nomad.

        The resort is so nice because you get to enjoy your coffee on the beach in the morning and star-gazing at night while walking or just sitting on the sand at the beachfront.

        Stayed here in Jan 2022. Rooms are reasonably priced and the staff were amazing. The resort has the best sunrise and sunset views. Great value for money. Really enjoyed my stay here.

        Simple beach front hotel”

        Simple place with adequate room. Beach front but a bit far from the restos at MJ square. Facilities like tables and chairs by the beach definitely needs an upgrade. Staff was wonderful and friendly. Food menu choices was ok.

        Good place to stay in Santa Fe”

        I loved this place. It is small with only two beach cottages but it seems to be connected with Sunday Flower Resort few steps towards the road which has more rooms. This is the place were you also can have breakfast if needed. The sea facing bungalow (second row) I stayed in was for the price very great value for money with a nice balcony were you have a view towards the beach and the ocean. Ocean swimming is also possible just few steps through the sand (no stones). SF cantina has also a bar and Josue and his brother are there to serve you from early in the morning till in the late evening and do a very great job. They are very eager to help you also with all other things that you might need such as tour bookings, motor bike or push bike hire. They are both fantastic and very helpful!!! To the village center of Santa Fe with many options to dine in or drink is about 15 minutes walk. I read one review that somebody was complaining that nobody was there for check out. This cannot be true (or at least it must have been changed)! During night time there is security guy to whom you can pass over the key at any time. There is also one staff member staying overnight who can always give you a tricycle right for example to the pier. This all was very convenient and a very relaxing place. I would definitely stay here again the next time and would recommend it to others.

        Hi, We did make one important adjustment. And that's to bring Junjun in at the Bar. During daytime he works as a HRD personnel at the Municipal Office. Now we can serve better. Well this practically is a family affair. And we make our guests part of our family. So if there are some problems then we talk. We help each other. We help our guests enjoy and experience genuine Filipino hospitality.
