From the main road, pass through D’Mall and turn left until you reach Pascual Store. Here, you’ll find an alley dotted with budget accommodations.Villa Simprosa
This is just a few steps from the store — who also happens to own this place — and just across the more popular Taj Guesthouse. We stayed here on our first night. FIRST because we had a miscommunication when I made a last minute reservation via SMS. They were only able to reserve us for a night instead of two. I couldn’t really complain especially when they didn’t require a downpayment.
We were assigned the Jeo room located at the end of the ground floor corridor. For Php1,500.00* per night, you get a no-frills room but with a personal refrigerator, full-sized closet and wall-mounted flat screen TV. And oh, WiFi’s good too.
If you need bigger/family rooms, you might get the ones in the annex which is a few minutes walk from the beachfront.

We got a double room on the third floor, which is a bit of a hassle especially if you have lots of things. But at least it has a veranda and a drying rack for your wet swimsuits plus a view of Le Soleil’s pool area to boot.Eriko’s is located in what locals refer to as ‘annex’. You can get here by taking the alley (refer to third picture in this post). Alternatively, you can also pass by the alley beside Sea World Dive Center which is actually closer.
