Best place to stay in Roxas, Mindoro, Philippines

When you take the ferry to or from Caticlan, arrival time or departure time can be on awkward hours. And sometimes you need a hotel to stay overnight or only for a few hours. There is a lot of rooms available in Roxas port and most hotels rent out rooms per hour as well, but the rate is expensive. You easily pay up to 2500 pesos for a no wifi, not clean, sober hotel room, with shared bathroom. The cheapest…

My experience in Well Beach Resort, Zamboanguita

My experience in Well Beach Resort, Zamboanguita

The access road is a nightmare, arriving there on a motorcycle I was in for a big surprise. One would think that a good access road is a golden threshold of your resort. Hugh covered private parking, but no space for guests to park. I managed to park my motor on a small strip next to the new reception area. The hotels is a quiet place, waterfront, I would not call it beach. Since there is only a small strip…

Bambulo Resort in Bacong, Dumaguete, Philippines

Bambulo Resort in Bacong, Dumaguete, Philippines

Tucked away along the road to Valencia, in Bacong there is a little resort called Bambulo. I had the pleasure of staying there for a night or two. It is a gated resort with only a few bungalows and they rent out a few gazebos for family parties and gatherings. Combined with a restaurant and a swimming pool it makes the property complete. The mix of bungalow guest and day guest make it a lively place, lucky for those not…

My Homestay beach front rental on Siquijor

After Dumaguete I decided to live in the beautiful Island of Fire: Siquijor. Just across the water, an hour and a half by roro-ferry from Dumaguete pier.

For me that means: hotel facilities like: towels and bedlinnen provided, gas, water & electricity included in the price and cleaning upon request. I pay 15,000 pesos per month which is about…

Cockroaches in my Hotel Room

Cockroaches in my Hotel Room

When I opened the door of my room of the Go Hotels in Bacolod, he came running up to me like he was a pet and I was his favourite boss. So happy to see me, his legs sliding over the tiled floor. I felt a gust of panic in my belly, pulled my keycard out it’s socket and jammed the door tight shut! Did I really see that? Slowly I opened the door again, lights on, and there it…
