We stayed here with another couple in one of the family rooms over the 2012 holidays and New Years. The women who work here are so hardworking and friendly. The food was really good - try the garlic rice! A walk to Panagsama with restaurants, bars, shops, and dive centers is about 20 minutes, but we thought the snorkeling just off the hotel property was really great too. The hotel is set off the main road through some local neighborhoods and we had some really friendly encounters with the Filipinos who live there, especially the children.
Only drawback was the lack of cash available, and we had to take a field trip into Carcar to get some money. But that in itself was an adventure - a word of advice would be to withdraw enough cash at the airport.
