Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our stay at Buenaventura Beachresort was quite nice!

We arrived at the place at around 12:30 pm and they allowed us to check in early since the room was already available and ready. The travel going to sugar beach from Sipalay City might take around 30 to 45 minutes. You may hire a tricycle (P100 to P150) to drop you off the port where there are small boats that will cross you by the river. Crossing the river will cost you P5 to P10. When we got there, a young boy offered to drop us off in front of the resort, but you will have to cross the sea and he charged us P100. There are no life vests, so this is not recommended. Go through the side and just cross the river. Once you get to the other side, you can walk along the shoreline. This may take 15 to 20 mins walk, so if you are carrying big bags, it might take a while to get there.

The resort is near Big Bamboo Resort. Turn right once you see the big bamboo signage. It's a good 50m from the beach front. We rented a room with 2 beds. For the price, it was well worth it. Kuya Brian and Ate Cheche (the owners) were so helpful and accommodating. They offered to refund us when the TV was not working. They also helped us with the boat ride to the terminal going to the van going to the airport (confusing, I know. 😂). The food was so good. There are only a few people so it was quite and relaxing. The sunset is gorgeous. A perfect escape from the busy life in Manila. Will be sure to come back!

My husband and I enjoyed there so much. It always nice to be back there. It is kind of a long way to get there from Hong Kong to Negros Philippines. However, when we got there. It was well worthy.The place looks nice and neat. The room is nice and clean, good room size, there are Fan rooms and air con rooms. They are helpful and friendly. I asked for a fish and chips dish, it came out wonderfully.The owner Brian and the family are THE Super Cool Dudes! Even the guests too, it is so relaxing. We take that as our second home! The facility is great! Just 50m walk to the beach. The food is delicious! The price is reasonable. The new menu is well done. The most we loved is Pizza,Fish and Chips, Pesto, Chicken....Everything is just perfect! No disappointment at all. Only the connection of WiFi is weak. However, it is NOT an issue for us.

We really enjoyed our stay at Buena Ventura, Brian is very accommodating. The room is very clean, spacious, good for our family of 3. My 3 year old son enjoyed the stay very much. The pizza is homemade, very very good!!! Absolutely worth it! Looking forward to visit again!

Excellent place to relax and unwind. There are a few different places to choose from on Sugar Beach, but we were very happy we chose this place.

Location:
It's all the way down near the end of the beach and back about 50m back from the sand, but not to worry, it's only about a 2 min walk through the coconut trees and you're in the water. Very secluded and private feel yet you can still hear the waves crashing.

Grounds:
Peaceful and relaxing. Beautifully landscaped with a peaceful garden covering most of the property. It's surrounded by coconut trees which gives it a very native feeling, and it's a short walk to an amazing cave.

Rooms:
Very clean and comfortable. There are AirCon rooms available. We had a fan room which was good for us since we've been living in the PH for a while now without one. Ref in room. TV if you want too. Nice clean bathroom with warm water and good pressure.

Staff:
Brian and his wife really made us feel at home.They were always there if we needed anything. You can tell they put a lot of effort into making this place a perfect spot to just unwind and relax. I can tell they really care about the guests experience and want you to feel at home.

Overall:
Excellent stay. Highly recommend. Will definitely be coming back. The price if very reasonable as well. I think someone posted a picture of the room rates on here, just take a look. The last thing is just make sure you bring cash because I don't think there is an ATM anywhere near Sugar Beach.

Nice place to stay near by the beach.
Cheap price for a big room, with private balcony and bathroom .The owner is a really nice guy who gonna give you tips and things to do in the Island . He bring us to a cave at 5 minute walking distance from his hostel because the entrance is quiet hard to find.
and the must is that we did heart any rooster singing in the morning :)

Fantastic atmosphere, delicious food and an excellent staff that will make your stay perfect. Beach is fantastic, and the rooms are clean and nice. The kitchen is excellent using only the best and most fresh ingredients. Even the fries are handmaid from real fresh potatoes. I can only be amazed by the quality offered at this fine establishment

Set about 50 metres back from the beach Buenaventura is a beautiful small resort which has a small number of rooms suitable for a variety of budgets.

The room we stayed in was immaculate and great value. It was large and had a TV and fridge, which we did not use, and had a wall mounted fan which was sufficient for keeping us cool (other rooms are available with aircon). The room was well thought-out with plenty of storage space and included a safe.
The bathroom was large and once again immaculately presented and had a reliable hot shower.

Free wifi and, unusually, free drinking water was available.

The food, especially the home made bread, was excellent. At the time we stayed a new menu was being produced and a quality coffee machine installed, which will no-doubt be to a very high standard. The centralised dining area is a great place to eat, drink, chill-out and chat with others. The furniture there, as with just about everything in the resort, is unique and hand made on site by the owner and his team; including the beds!

The owners Brian and JJ are very hospitable and made us feel very welcome from the outset. Brian worked tirelessly to ensure everything was just right; from the condition of the room, the dining experience or just providing local information.

Buenaventura is a lovely quite site, although slightly set back from the beach we absolutely recommend the resort as an alternative to the often more expensive beach front resorts, or just for food and drinks if on Sugar Beach. If our experience is anything to go by you will be made very very welcome there.

Coming from Dumaguete the ride or drive to Sipalay is filled with amazing views. The best of which is when you first step foot on Sugar Beach. Buenaventura is set a little back from the ocean, maybe 50 meters, but this does nothing to hinder the experience. Buenaventura is nestled in among the palm trees and the entire place has the feel of a well groomed garden. It is a small operation, so make sure you book your rooms in advance. The staff is small, but extremely competent, they will do everything in their power to make your stay enjoyable, this includes the owners. Overall, visiting Sipalay while staying at Buenaventura is an outstanding experience.
