    "If you are looking for nature ambience you should try this one. Their rooms are cottages type, no tv and no airconditioning. But this is the best place to stay in if you really want to explore catanduanes. It is near the beautiful places. They accommodate well. Cheap rooms and is the best surfing place for a surfer."

    "Went here for an overnight stay with my friend. Room is cheap, no airconditioning, which is good for two with a shared bathroom. Food was good but it took us many times to ask for a check up for them to give us our order. Good place to stay when you are planning to go to Binurong point. You can ask for a habal-habal driver to accompany you to Binurong point, 20-min motorcycle ride from this resort."

  • Review by a traveler from Manila, Philippines

    "Stayed in a thatched hut and learned to surf the Majestic. This is a perfect place to really get away from the world. Everything is normal as normal gets. No pretenses, no fancy names for food. Spam is spam, and instant noodles are as it says.Visitors come here to surf, detach from city life, and take in the sun and sand. It is basic, but it is an awesome place to visit! Bring anything you think you will need because this place might as well be the end of the earth. And it is a bit of a trip to get back to the town center of Baras to get supplies."

  • Review by Joseph from Philippines

    "Went solo and hired a van to take me around catanduanes. Arrived here midday and left after a few hours, the place is almost deserted sans the resort staff, handful of locals and guests. The waves are not as high but reach far, the sand is light yellow and almost fine. Rock formation is good, but the choices for lodging are limited to 3 resorts. Quite far from Virac, about an hour drive away. Not much regular transportation passing in the area."

  • Review by a traveler from Hong Kong

    "All around great experience with this place! Went looking to grab some waves, and see a new part of the world. From start to finish they were super helpful and accommodating, everything from booking and transportation to setting up a boat excursion to find some waves, and even locking in some scooters to go explore with. We stayed in the Christine cottage which is a 2 bed 1 bath house with a great view of the break. The food was simple and very economic made to order and hit the spot after a nice surf and went good with a red horse. This is simple living and was definitely a great way to spend the week."
