We stayed here in early June, 2012. Overall it wasn't bad for the price.
The price.. Very affordable
The room was very big. We were a group of 3 and had a room with a double bed and a single. The bathroom was small but very clean. The room came with a TV and outlets that allowed you to charge at 110 or 220 volts. We had the North American 3 prong type plugs on our laptop and it worked fine.
The location was quite good. It was central to the area and had a docking area attached to the guest house that you could be picked up from to go island hopping, The outdoor market was a short 5 minute trike ride away and cost 10 pesos a person (around .25 cents Canadian). There was a good restaurant at the entrance to the guest house also.
The owners (or people living on the property) were friendly and helpful. They served breakfast each morning for us between 7:30-8:30 on the patio consisting of typical Filipino fare, rice, egg and meat along with coffee.
The Not so good:
Although I was quite satisfied considering this is a guest house and not a hotel, worth mentioning is
The Air Con was not the strongest. There was A/C, and it was working but it wasn't the greatest. A fan was included in the room too which helped.
There was free wifi, but at times it was REALLY slow and at other times it was decent. As the town is not the most modern (to say the least) I suspect I may not be able to blame this on the guest house. In fact, we had a brown out or two of electricity and I am told this is common throughout town.
All and all, I would stay here again if I stayed in this price range, but I would probably splurge a bit more next time.
