We stayed at RB Lodge for the Ati Atihan festival. They arranged free pick-up from the airport. The hotel (perhaps it is less than a hotel as the name suggests) does not look much from the outside but inside the room was clean and simple. The beds were comfortable enough (the usual foam matress for this type of establishment); the shower provided warm water if required. We didn't try their breakfast - the menu suggests a simple Filipino breakfast. Given the limited 'formal' choices for eating in Kalibo it would be worth trying. They have a good coffee place downstairs.
The location is great for Ati Atihan - just a short walk to where the action is. The staff were helpful in arranging a hire car for a trip out of town. On arrival they gave us a little welcome pack with some local delicacies and souvenirs and a city map (that indicated they also have a newer hotel building close by). The room looked to the back so was relatively quiet but one could still hear the drums of the festival (and some tricycles and cockerels) so bring ear-plugs if you are a light sleeper.
For what we wanted (and given there are limited hotel choices in Kalibo) this was simple but just right and we enjoyed our stay.
