It was my first time to visit and experience what Camotes Island can offer to the tourist. Actually, Camotes Island is one of the lists that I need to visit this year 2017. One down on the list.
When traveling, accommodation is the first thing to look especially you’re in a group. I was looking for a good and comfortable but affordable accommodation to stay for 2 days for us. It was hard since I’m looking for any resort or anything that we can stay near Santiago Bay Beach because it’s one of the popular beaches in Camotes Island but most of them online like Agoda.com, Booking.com and other bookings site.
Instead of looking near Santiago Bay Beach, I look for other places that might few meters away from the port or even to tourist spots destination.
I found Camao Pension House but now name as Camao Resort, it’s new, comfortable, good sight but affordable accommodation for all of us to enjoy Camotes Island Adventure. It’s located in San Francisco, Camotes Island and not so far from the tourist spots we’ve been to. Camao Pension House is one of the affordable accommodation that I found and perfect for team outing and you must try it too.
Camao Resort is maintained by owner’s brother. I forgot the real name but their surname is Go.
