The Buntod Sand Bar and Marine Sanctuary and Bugsayon Marine Sanctuary, on the other hand, both preserve live coral reefs and other forms of marine wildlife."

Front office staff not helpful and unfriendly. I added an extra bed for a third person then I found out they have bigger room with 2 beds which would have been better than a mattress on the floor. But they didn’t want to do change my room. The reason? Because I booked my original room online and the new room was cheaper than the online rate. They finally agreed when I said they don’t need to refund the difference, just give me the room with 2 beds so the extra person will not be on a “bed” on the floor. It took a lot of arguing and time for them to call the management for permission to do it.

The room is clean, but the pillows and the bed is smelly. Even if they provided clean sheets and pillow cases, I can still smell the foul odor (same odor of their couch in the reception area). They need to wash the pillows and mattress. Also, there are red ants, I put my backpack on the floor near the door and it when I was already out and I saw ants coming out of my bag and when I placed food in the table. They have complimentary 2 bottles of water everyday, but they didn't mention this to me until I asked if they have water. You need to ask for it otherwise you will not know.

The owner and the staff are very accommodating. They allow us to early check-in. The rooms looks old (built long time ago) but it was clean. It is very near to buntod reef marine sanctuary and sandbar and nearby areas one ride away.
