I got a PHP 1500 cottage, and stayed for 10 nights. They will give you good discount if you do diving with their dive center, which is also good, especially Thanks to Daniela, the instructor/manager.
Pros: friendly staff, excellent location, and clean enough. The quality of the cottage, relative to the price, is good. I saw other budget options on the island which were pretty terrible. This one had constant hot water, 24h electricity, decent bathroom, and free wifi. And a nice terrace where you can hang out.
Cons: a few nights they had loud music playing at the bar next door until late. Just twice, but it was annoying enough. The restaurant is, sorry to say, terrible. But there are plenty of good options within 3 minutes walking.
