Through research, I stumbled upon this gem. Villa Paraiso is not popular like Camiguin's other hotels like Bahay Bakasyunan and Paras BUT I can attest that this is a great hotel. We were not disappointed and we will surely be back or reccomend this to our family and friends.
The resort is new. You can see it from their facilities. Service is great, every request that we made were promptly addressed. They make sure that they follow our instructions to the dot. Our food were always served the exact time that we asked them and so is our car service. It's the little things that really make the difference.
What's great about this resort/ Hotel is that they offer a complete package from hotel transfer, food, accomodation and island tour. It's a great deal! We had a hustle free vacation all thanks to them. They even helped us book our ferry to CDO without extra charges, that's how great they were.
Aside from great service, the look and feel of the hotel is just awesome. They have manicured lawns, a bar and a very nice swimming pool to hang out to. The room that we had is clean and new. Everything was just nice and perfect.
Tabada's Homestay will provide attentive and friendly service .

Paras Beach resort is supposedly the best place to stay in Camiguin. I haven't been to the other places so it's not fair to agree or disagree. Anyway, this is what you can expect:
1. The place does not have a beach. You have to pay about $10 just to get to and from a sandbar that has nothing on it but sand and people.
2. The hotel is clean and has good linens.
3. The facilities, while relatively good compared to other resorts, are ordinary. Don't expect luxury.
4. Service isn't great, but not terrible either.
The place has wi-fi, a computer for rent, swimming pool, pool table, restaurant, ice cream and they can organize tours for you. Probably the most convenient place to stay in Camiguin, hence the good reviews online.
Paras Beach Resort is perhaps the most popular in Camiguin Island. It has a nice swimming pool which is exclusive to the guests. It also has a huge restaurant serving affordable & tasty food. You can have billiards & ping-pong here during your free time. There's also a bar for drinks. White Island is just across around 5 minutes pumpboat ride from here. This resort also offers tours around the island. Room can be as low as P1900 considering the amenities. I find the beach not inviting though.
Nice swimming pool. Just keep those frogs away.
Paguia Cottages is just across the well-known Paras Resort for a much cheaper price. The cottage we had is okay. I find it huge good enough for 5 persons. We paid P1200 per night. We were quoted P1500 but the owner is nice enough to let us haggle & give us discount. It has huge beds, TV & a refrigerator. The toilet & bath is good enough & serves its purpose. The only downside was during the 1st night, there were plenty of mosquitoes that we requested to have the room sprayed.
We came to know of bahay-bakasyunan through a friend and we were very happy with our decision to stay there. The rooms are like nipa hut structures, we stayed in a standard room, which has two single beds. There is a small veranda outside where you can sit and relax. However, a much better place to hang out is the hammock just outside Cafe Cecilia.
We made our reservation through internet and the hotel was very efficient in confirming our room. They would however require a deposit for one night's stay and their bank is PNB, which doesn't have that many branches.
During our last night there, we decided to lounge around the pool area and ordered coffee and tea. Even if the cafe was already closed, the remaining hotel staff accommodated our request. They even opened the big umbrella, which we used to spice up our photos.
We were scheduled to take the ferry back to Cagayan de Oro at 4.30 am and we need to leave the Hotel at 3.30. Since it was super early to have our breakfast in the hotel, the staff happily packed our breakfast fare complete with mineral water.
They have three hammocks right beside the big pool and over looking the sea.
Paras Beach Resort was originally a Private Beach Front and Vacation Home of the Prominent Paras family until they realized that their place offered good advantages like being the nearest area to White Island so in 1995, they converted their place to a beach resort and like they say, the rest is history! and now, their resortis the best in all of camiguin.
Besides the Large Rooms like the standard (cost 2,500 pesos) and the superior (costs 3,000 pesos) that are equipped w/ aircon, cable tv, bathroom, beach view, the resort offers boat rides to White Island (about 100 pesos round trip) which is a 3 minute boat ride away. They also offer tours around the island like the Katibawasan Falls, Sunken Cemetery, Mount Hibok hibok Voncanic Observatory, etc. If you are in Camiguin, this is the place to stay!
Caves dive resort has a series of cottages that are well-maintained, clean and located directly across from the spectacular White Island. It also houses one of the branches of Johnny’s Dive ‘n’ Fun, a local institution. To be honest, most of these places seem more or less the same. Just find your most congenial host, best restaurant and go for it.

We stayed in Villa Paraiso Apartelle for 3 days and 2 nights. According to the front desk clerk, the resort has only been in operation for 2 years hence its relatively new compared to other resorts in Camiguin. They have different accommodation types - twin sharing rooms, family rooms and dorm type rooms. all rooms are airconditioned and have cable tv. they also have a pool, bar and small nipa huts where you can hang out.
We booked their dorm type room which is actually good for 12 persons for 2 nights at 3000Php per night! Mind you they did not use bunk beds but single beds. Since there's only 7 of us, they took away the extra beds to give us more space. The room is very spacious even with the 12 single beds in it. It also has a veranda where you can hang out to smoke or something or where you can hang ur wet clothes to dry. The room has only 1 toilet and 1 bath. This proved to be a challenge for us since our group comprises of 7 girls. another downside with the dorm type room is that it doesnt have hot and cold shower when all the other rooms do. we also had problems with the lights in our room. the 2 fluorescent lights in our room decided to quit on us at the same time. so we had to do things in the dark. they sent out somebody to fix it but he was not able to fix the problem.
guest services are nice. they cleaned our room and replaced our towels everyday. they even gave us new ones when the towels that we were hanging out to dry got wet from the rain. they even arranged our stuff for us and fortunately not penny went missing.
My stay in Paguia's is great. It only cost me PHP1,000 but this cottage is huge! With cable tv, own cr inside the room, 1 matrimonial bed, 1 single bed, veranda. Its good for maximum of 6 pax. preferably 2-4 pax.
Its just infront of PARAS beach resort which is expensive about 1,700php. So, you can take your meals in PARAS. Its about 100meters away from the beach and fronting the boats where you can ride to WHITE ISLAND
Cottage / Bungaloo Type
shell garden, the one we picked, is perched on an old tree. 800 pesos good for 2, additional 200/head for extra persons. we were six so we paid 1,600 (267/head). this place brings you closer to arts and nature. sadly the place seems abandoned and not well taken care of. a little manicuring on the plants around to expose the statues strangled by plants and a general cleaning will make enigmata even more homey and endearing. they also have dorm type at 200/head. i notice their rooms are dark. maybe it's the overgrown plants clinging into the house that prevent the sunlight from coming in. another concern is the food. it's way too overpriced. imagine we paid 700 when it only includes 1 tinola chicken soup, 1 pork adobo and 2 chicken curry and it didn't taste that good either. i guess it's wiser to eat outside. inquire at firstname.lastname@example.org
