It has been a nice experience staying at this inn. The staff are so hospitable and very caring. I recommend this place because:
1. It is affordable (Php 3,650 per pax for 3d/2n accom with tour and food)
2. It is in the town proper
3. Food here is super delicious
It was my Mahal's birthday on February 3rd that instead of going to Tagaytay the next day,we suddenly jump into an unplanned Vacation to Caramoan.
We look up in sulit the cheapest hotel to stay and we came accross Bed&Dine Hometel.
Without any hesitation we called the number we saw on their website and spoke to Kuya Alan(the owner).
It was my hubby's first time to be in bicol so I wanted him to be please. On our way,I was praying that the B&D hometel we chose will not fail us.
What was amazing is that Kuya Alan was very prompt in replying to our text messages, that made us so at ease and comfortable already.
From Naga Bus Terminal we rode a van to sabang port and from sabang port we were fetch by Kuya Willy (the staff driver of the B&D Hometel), 30minutes b4 arrival,Kuya Willy was already waiting there in advance at the port, me and my Mahal was very pleased seeing our name on written on a piece of paper held by Kuya Willy looking for us among the Ferry Passengers. He was very friendly.
Arriving at the Hometel we were greeted by the owner himself (very accomodating),he showed us our room and was told that our lunch is ready(it was just on time coz we are already hungry bec of the long hours travel).
The facilities of the Hometel I can say is very good enough for its rate. Airconditioned room,queensize bed,cable tv,cr and shower. when we enter that room,we were amazed by its cleanliness
The food servings are overwhelming and its very fresh and yummy :),my Mahal loved it.
After lunch nag island hopping na kami,(i forgot the name of the boatman) they were very nice and friendly too.
We really enjoyed Island hopping and at 4:30pm we were fetch by Kuya Willy again back to B&D then we ate dinner.
After dinner we had the chance to chitchats with Kuya Alan, it was fun talking to him,he was very professional and kind.
and the next morning after breakfast time to go home, hinatid na kami ni Kuya Willy back to Guijalo port after we went to church and bought souveiners downtown.
we will surely come back here with our friends next year.
ALL IN ALL,the owner the staff are very professional and accomodating. If you want to see the real attitude of a nice friendly bicolano,come and dine at B&D Hometel.
The place is simple yet you can feel away from stressful environment.
We were very very disappointed with this "so called" HOMETEL. The woman who arranged the trip was a rip-off!!!! She promised that somebody was gonna pick us up and that the food would be ready by the time we reach the hotel and she told us that there would be a reserved room for us. BUT ALL OF THESE ARE ***!!!!!!!!! SHE WAS EVEN ***IN' THAT THEY WERE SO TIRED AND HAVEN'T EATEN THEIR BREAKFAST!! WTF!! Is this what you call GOOD SERVICE?? The place is nice, but it's worthless if they have bad service..... Please don't make any arrangements with this ***!!.... This place is a RIP-OFF!!!! I strongly DON'T recommend this place.......
No great qualities at all....
I am a Bikolana and i really love travelling. This holy week, i decided to bring my family to Caramoan for the first time. I made advance booking for 2 rooms to BC Hometel through its proprietor Fely Belleza and made advance payment as well. I also made arrangements with them to pick us up from the port, food and boat. On the day of the Caramoan travel, i texted and tried to call them several times to inform that we are already at the Sabang port so they will know what time to pick us up. None of the calls and texts were answered. When we arrived at the port, nobody was there to pick us up. So we have to find our own transportation to go to BC Hometel. To add up to the huge disappointment of the poor service, BC hometel informed us that they did not prepare our food and make reservations for the boat. No apologies was received and she was blaming us because she is not having her breakfast yet. We waited for almost 2 hours and still no food. This is the worst vacation i had!!!! Its a sad thing that it happened to my own province. I really don't know if i can still recommend Caramoan a place to visit if there are people like Fely Belleza. We decided to go home on that same day.
West Pen is the best place to stay in Caramoan, having a 5-star like accommodation, service and food, a humble island could offer. Sir Joenard and Jessie are only two of the many staff that have been very helpful to our short trip.
West Pen offers very nice cabanas that are very cozy and clean... A highly recommended hotel and their packages are worth every cent. We'll come back soon for sure!!!
Stayed here as part of a group trip. Basic accommodation, decent bed, clean sheets, working airconditioner and CR, even includes TV with cable. All in all a pleasant stay and fairly cheap at 1,000 per night. Some rooms have queen beds, others have two single beds. Near the church and the market, however, you'd have to travel quite a bit to reach the bancas that will take you island hopping.
La Casa Roa Hostel is homey and it is the first hostel in Caramaon with amenities of a good hotel. with a decent and clean restaurant and a convenience shop. You get the best value for your money. It is worth staying at La Casa Roa Hostel.
La Casa Roa Hostel has the accomodation of a good hotel and it is located at the town proper and walking distance to the church and market. It assures its guest of safety and security especially in the evening.

Basically this homestay is a home owned by a high school teacher in Caramoan. It is similar to an apartelle which provides you with a kitchen, living room (television, dvd player), 2 a/c bedrooms and extra matresses to fit people. And it is also near Sights and Sand tourist inn where we had our meals. (unfortunately i wasn't able to take note of the contact numbeR)
It's simple, and you don't only have a room, but a whole house to yourselves.
Great place to stay! They’ll take care of you as if you're visiting your relatives for a vacation, filling you w/ stories around the place from Ate Myrna and Ate Gina as they guide you along the trip.
RdS is a simple and cozy home w/ clean Ac rooms for a comfy night sleep; T&B w/ hot showers for a refreshing and relaxing bath especially after being wet from caramoan islands tour. They also got cable LCD TV. And at the spacious sala, their videoke is available for you to sing your hearts out!
They are also very accommodating as I inquired regarding their package tour rates at 3 in the morning, to my surprise I got a reply after a few minutes! Talk about fast reply! They would try to answer all your inquiries about caramoan and even help and guide you to whatever info you may need to know if you are to take the tour by yourselves and avail only their bed and breakfast. Kuya Edgar is also very kind enough to grant our request to have a side trip at CWC and Consocep falls before we leave Naga.
Thanks for having us stay at RdS! Makes our Caramoan Adventure feels like we are with our family!
Luckily, I left my tripod face plate at RdS when I was cleaning it the night before we left. Since Ate Myrna frequently drives Naga-Manila, I asked them if i can get it at their place in Manila, and they said that it is already there for me to pick up. Sweet!
Residencia de Salvacion offers affordable package - Located at Baragay Salvacion, Caramoan a 10 minutes drive from Guijalo Port and 5 minutes drive to Centro of Caramoan.
Avail of their generous package you'll surely not regret it --- you'll never have to be bothered by anything else but to enjoy the scenery and escapade. It includes food - An Eat-all-you-can Homemade Goodness Food, lodging, boat rides to different islands, cave etc. and the hospitality unlike any other.
Thanks to all the Staff of Residencia de Salvacion for letting us stay in Caramoan w/ Comfort, Adventure and Fun...
One of the new hotel in Caramoan which is located in Paniman.....The staff are accommodating, they make sure all their guest are comfortable, they reach out to the guest....The rooms are big enough to accommodate 5 pax, they have 2 beds, 1 double and 1 single plus a big mattress for extra person... They also offer package, the good thing about their package is they served seafoods and they will make sure your money is worth the package...
Ate Labeth is the best person to call if you want to experience the best vacation of your life......
the no. to call 09198319497......
The best thing about this hotel is the beach and the sunrise not to mention the view, you will be able to see Lahus from the balcony of the hotel... The place also is well maintained, clean and good landscapping....
They have now opened their Salvacion house to the public. I stumbled into the owner’s “Caramoan myHometown” website during my research about the islands for our Jan 2010 visit. After many logistical questions and details, the owner eventually offered me their B&B as an alternative to the more expensive resort.
Staying here is like you're part of the family--hospitality unlike any other. Their staff wonderfully takes care of their guests. Avail of their generous package and you'll surely not regret it. Even if you're just a backpacker or transit guest looking for a place to plop your head, they probably will have a decent bed to offer you.
Residencia offers affordable package—a fraction of the cost at Gota Resort. It includes food, lodging, boat rides to/from Guijalo, local transpo for island hopping. No need for you to haggle with the boatman for your fares to/from Guijalo, or with the boatmen for island hopping, or tricycle (tuk-tuk style) driver, or even at the public market. The guide takes care of those.
Food? Wow! Eat-all-you-can seafood—can’t beat that. Tell them what you want and their dedicated cook will not let you down. Cooking is done on woodfire, so the flavor and aroma is appetizing. Throw in some desserts if you can manage to stuff yourself.
Residencia de Salvacion is a 15-min ride from Guijalo Port, and situated mid-way between Guijalo and Centro (the town proper). The vacation house is modern and clean. The bedrooms come with a/c and hot water shower, and the family/living room is spacious and well-appointed. It can comfortably accommodate 8-20 people. Better come in groups for real fun and adventure. For big groups, they will arrange a van to take you and your picnic baskets to your desired destination. Note: Internet service can be spotty; some CF may have weak signals in some areas (check with owners); cable is probably reinstalled by now.
Thanks to the Nunez family and staff for the hospitality and opening their home to strangers who are eager to discover the beauty of the Caramoan Islands.

clean, modern B&B, rooms with a/c, hot water shower, delectable food, inexpensive package, warm hospitality, location is mid-way between Guijalo Port and Centro (town proper)
The place is for budget traveler who will only spend around 800 pesos a night. Doesn't have the luxury of the hotels but they have the basic necessity like an A/C room with cable TV and comfy bed. Our room was clean. The CR is common and doesn't have land line phone. The staff are indeed helpful and accommodating. We have 3 comfortable beds on a spacious room near the reception.
They have a lobby where you can have a cold beer and store downstairs so it's easy for you to buy something you want. You can just walk if you want to visit the church of St. Michael, some restos and videoke houses.
The Inn offers tour packages inclusive of tour guide, transportation, Island Hopping and your meals. I really like the food they serve. However, guests who have not availed any of the tour package can dine to restaurant nearby, like Caramoan Bed and Dine or Lutong Bahay.
I recommend this place to budget travelers who want to explore the hidden and untouched beauty of the islands of Caramoan.
