From the owner

Mangrove Inn is a villa just on the shoreline in the south of Cebu in the Philippines. This air-conditioned villa is fully furnished and offers all modern equipment for nowadays needs, like a television set with DVD-player, a microwave, WIFI and so on. Inside the house up to three excellent sleeping rooms are available for you and outside a magnificent, private infinity pool overlooks the gorgeous sea. The friendly staff that keeps the house is able to offer all kinds of assistance to make your stay even more pleasant. They are fully equipped to guide and book fishing-, biking- and hiking tours and when wished for, they will do your laundry, babysit, prepare meals and barbeques, meanwhile entertaining you with live music. All this 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. If you want total privacy on the other hand, nobody will bother you and this little paradise will be all yours and yours alone. The private pool is deep enough at the far end to follow diving courses, which the staff can arrange for you at your request. You will love the possibility of taking a refreshing dive in the morning or a romantic swim in the evening, enjoying the beautiful views all around. A convenient terrace, romantically surrounded by coconut trees, offers you the perfect spot to relax and sunbath any time of the day and is just a few steps away from the sea. The first meters into the sea are muddy, but after that the sea becomes very beautiful. The staff of Mangrove Inn always welcomes you with great pleasure.

Additional fee for electricity and must be paid in cash to the caretaker!

Owner's reply:
Hello Kern, There is something you deserve to know about the procedure. The booking-site will send you an acceptation without consulting us. This is purely based on the booking calendar. What happened in this case was that we were in the process of finishing a booking when your request came. As said, your request was automatically accepted without consulting us. To avoid this for the future we found a feature in the bookings site to take a delay in account of 5 days between a request and a confirmation. This does not help you very much. In all fairness we believe this review about booking incident should not reflect the quality of our destination. Good luck in finding other options to stay! Sincerely, Fam. Raaijmakers
