We were in Siquijor over Christmas and stayed at The Bruce. We really enjoyed it. We had one of their family beach front cottages, which was awesome. Really spacious, two double beds which are separated by a half wall which doubled as a cupboard/storage space for our clothes etc. On top of that if you need more storage space there...

Rooms were nice and clean, the staff was helpfull and the location was perfect! It is located 15 minutes from the haven, and...

This is the perfect tropical getaway at a reasonable price. The sunsets on the beach here are to die for. Plus they have good Filipino food, laundry service, massage service (no happy ending), and good facilities.

Stayed with my family for 4D/3N, villa is clean & spacious (w/ kitchenette). Good location, sorrounded with a few restobars if you want to eat out and chill for the night. Staffs were very helpful. Beach area is muddy not recommended for swimming but offers free kayak for guests.

Since we were going to stay in Siquijor for five nights, we looked for a place with small kitchen and everyone recommended this place. Though no air conditioner in the cottage the breeze was cool enough during the night time to sleep, and if too hot outside, fans are enough to keep you cool. It was about 500 pesos/person/night (we...

I was skeptical about the place since it offered so much at such a good price. But I was not disappointed. We got a non-aircon beachfront cottage. No need for aircon though as it was quite breezy. The cottage was quaint, it even had like an outdoor receiving area. It also had a kitchen! And we used it a lot...

"So far so good" this is what I said to myself when we arrived at The Bruce. First thing, the accommodation was very cheap. We occupied the tree house which cost us 750php for one night only. It has the basic things you need (bed, fan, water, towel, tissue, instant coffee and a glass) but except for a toilet. We...
