We stayed on Jan 15-18 and was very happy to have chosen the location - so peaceful and quiet just what we needed. We were welcomed by Peejay who was so warm and accommodating. We were taken care of by Jasmine and Ayzel who cooked and cleaned for us everyday - very much spoiled I must say. We are already missing them and the place ! On our last night we were able to join the local fishermen with their catch .. so memorable experience for us. Our stay was made comfortable by everyone from the van driver to and from Calapan and from the jeepney driver to and from Puerto Galera. We never had any problems with all our requests. We will definitely come back and stay longer ! Highly recommended ! Lucy, stayed January 2017
