As a budget traveler, one of the things that take up much of my travel budget is accommodation. Because of this, I try to look for a great but affordable place whenever I go traveling. For our Malapascua trip, I chose Romantic Place Guesthouse for its price.

The reviews I found were pretty nice too. I booked the Budget Double Room and got the room for 1260 pesos for 2 nights.

Our Experience

Upon arrival, Ryk and I were given the Batman room. I loved the name!

Our room was just behind the pool which was great. The room was nice. It had a fan and a private bathroom. The bed was big enough for the two of us. Overall, the room was okay for its price.

Amenities and Features

Restaurant

You can order food from the front desk. But the prices were a bit expensive and the food was not that yummy.

Pool

The place has two pools. But during our stay – 3 days and 2 nights. I’ve never seen the place change the water so Ryk and I were a bit unsure of swimming. In the end, I was the only one who swam.

Location

From the beach to this place, you have to walk for 5 minutes. During your first time, you have to remember the right way since the way there can get a bit confusing. There are a lot of twists and turns you have to do.

Nearby Places to Buy Food From

If you’re going to stay here, I suggest you buy food outside. There’s a nearby store that sells chicken. It’s just a small place. No tables whatsoever, so you have to deal with takeout.

Make sure to buy early since it often sells out fast. The seller is an elderly woman with a great smile. You’ll find her place easily.

If you’re a vegetarian, you can buy from the neighboring Villa Sandra.

Overall

It’s a great place to be if you’re on a budget. You just have to walk to and from the beach.
