I took a break from my busy schedule and wanted to relax. So, I was looking for a place to stay near Dumaguete City.
The place was just perfect. I like its serenity and the nice view of the beach. I also like the people--from the owner to the caretaker. They are all friendly and hospitable.
After a delayed flight we were met at the airport by Gaston the owner who drove us to Amlan, stopping on the way for some supplies. The unit was great - very comfortable with fabulous ocean views and all the facilities you could want. While we were there, Gaston and Nancy really made us feel at home and on one rainy day they even drove us into Dumaguete for a massage. We found good food options nearby with a great little restaurant and a delicious "Chooks To Go" just up the road. The Amlan Oceanfront Guest Unit was a very relaxing place to stay with perfect hosts in a lovely location. Very highly recommended.
Great hospitality from the owners with an awesome view and good snorkling at the doorstep.
Bed was hard but would definitely go back some time.
Great place to stay between Dumaguete and Tanjay. Proprietors are genuinely friendly, nice people. Units are very modern, well maintained and clean, with air conditioning. Right on the beach. Great coral beds for snorkeling. Grounds very well maintained, with optional laundry service available on site. Rooms are very quiet, away from the main road, and well soundproofed, allowing for a great night's sleep.
The place is quiet, clean and well furnished. We managed to cook there.
The coral reef is outstanding!
The owners are nice and helpful.
The place is a bit remote but it's really easy to catch a bus or a tricycle just in front of the house.
Be careful, it's not easy to find, there is no name sign and people in alman don't know about it.

Spacious, well appointed, air conditioned and mere steps from the Pacific Ocean my accommodation was more than reasonably priced and well within my travel budget. My congenial hosts were more than helpful. Public transportation was readily available and quite inexpensive. A number of sightseeing tours are available within the area and, again, quite inexpensive. As I continue my travels I leave with regret this haven of peacefulness and tranquility.
The two oceanfront guest houses are located in Amlan town, approximately 16 kms north of Dumaguete City airport in Negros province, Philippines. Easy and convenient access to the guest houses is via the picturesque two-lane, paved National Highway, which is in excellent condition.
My wife and I stayed at the guest house closest to the ocean for approximately two weeks in August, 2015. The two guest houses are brand new. (We were the first guests!) Our guest house was spotlessly clean, quiet, air conditioned and comfortably furnished.
We really liked the front patio which has a small table and two chairs, plus an electric stove. We prepared a hot breakfast each morning, relaxed and enjoyed the view of the Tanyon Strait, separating Negros province from Cebu Island. The patio also has a sink and running water for clean-up of the dishes, cutlery, etc. which is supplied.
The owners live on the property and were friendly, helpful and readily available.
My wife and I would definitely stay there again if our travels take us to that area of the central Philippines.
