We stayed here for 4 nights in low season (sept 2018) and it cost around £36 a night for a double room with private bathroom. Compared to other places we have stayed it seems overpriced for what you get. A positive was that the owner...More

Hello Mitchell! Thank you for leaving us a review. We're surprised that as blogger you didn't like our place, as we've had many bloggers visit in the past that have been completely mesmerized by the beauty of Makulay and feel it gives their followers an...More

I don't think that there is aircon in each room. I don't know if it is allowed to add person in the room.

I am planning to come to the Philippines in January, mainly for snorkeling and diving. I saw your web site, but I wanted to ask questions to you directly so I can be sure I know how things are at your place. It certainly looks like a beautiful and comfortable place to stay. Here are some questions: 1. Is there good snorkeling from the beach at hotel? I don't want to take a boat, just want to wade out & go snorkeling. 2. How hot does it usually get in January: Is air conditioning available? Is there usually much rain In Jan? Do you have fresh water showers? Electricity? 3. Do you have a dive shop or is the a dive shop close by? 4. If I want a meal at another restaurant are restaurants nearby? 5. How does one get around? Is there easy bus service? 6. Would I fly in to Puerto Princesa and do you have transportation from airport? 7. Can I get a room with a/c and ocean view? What is the cost? I am one person, I hope to stay for 2 weeks, around Jan 7, but my dates are flexible. Thanks, hope to hear from you soon Billye Timbes
