I stayed at Residencia with my husband an in-laws. We had a very basic room that was just two double beds. It was perfect for what we needed, which was a comfortably, friendly place to stay.
Like I said, the rooms were brand new. It was tastefully decorated and the bathroom and shower was really nice. There was a separate washing area by the door where you could wash the sand from your legs before entering the main area of the room. The room was small, but with plenty of room for the four of us. Plus, we really didn't spend much time in the room anyway!
The owners were very kind and would cook dinner for us upon request. We had a huge dinner on our last night at a table on the beach. Wonderful food! Breakfast every morning was good, except they serve instant coffee (yuck!).
I bought my favorite pearls from a friend of the hotel's who would come around periodically with his wares. I got a good bargain compared to the prices I was quoted elsewhere on the island and in Manila. My mother-in-law had stayed there the year before and said that she bought pearls from the same guy at that time.
Overall a great experience! They can set you up with snorkeling or island hopping tours, as well!
