Camiguin Accommodation: Paguia’s Cottages

A week before our trip to Camiguin, I asked some CDO-based friends on where we can possibly stay. They first suggested that we try Paras Beach Resort, but the rooms are fully booked for the day of our trip. Angel Juarez of Lakwatsero.com posted in his blog two years ago that they stayed in Paguia’s Cottages. It is located near Paras Beach Resort and the White Island. I called the owner RENE and asked if there’s a vacant cottage for four. I’m glad there is!

Welcome to Paguia's Cottages!

I didn’t see clear photos of Paguia’s Cottages online prior to our trip. Since the price is less expensive compared to the rates of Paras Beach Resort, I didn’t really expect too much. Php1,200 for one cottage good for 4-6 people? Not bad.

We smiled when Kuya Ben (Paguia’s driver) picked us up at the port. We traveled for approximately 25 minutes to Brgy. Mambajao to finally see our home for the day. Honestly, we were quite surprised when we saw the cottage – it’s bigger than we thought! We owned it (at least for a day LOL) and the room is spacious.

Our Bed (two become one LOL)

The two beds which we conjoined together is more than enough for us four. There’s a refrigerator, TV and cabinets. Of course, the Free Wifi made me happy 😛

Although we only stayed in Paguia’s for 2 days and 1 night, it was still a memorable one. Kuya Rene and Kuya Ben were really nice to us. They offered a package tour worth Php 2,300 (inclusion of the jeep). Some of the destinations we were able to go to are: White Island (we rented Paguia’s boat), Old Volcano, Sunken Cemetery, Guiob Church Ruins, Sto. Nino Cold Springs, Katibawasan Falls, Luna Ristorante, Market and the Hibok-Hibok Hot Springs. We failed to reach the other destinations due to the lack of time… and we woke up late 😛

We owned this 'house' overnight 😛

For groups who prefer to stay in one room/cottage to save money or those who are in a tight budget, I suggest that you stay in Paguia’s Cottages. There is also a nearby place with the same room rates just in case Paguia’s is full.

Before we left, I even told Kuya Rene that i’ll be back next year. I will surely keep that promise

    Hi! How far is Paguia’s from Benoni Port? We will be staying there this weekend and they are charging P400 for pickup from the port to Paguias. Just wanted to know if this price is reasonable enough. Hehe.

    Stayed overnight on May 22-23, 2011. Got our room @ PhP 1,200 – we were 4. Aircon room, cable TV, private bathroom. Towels are optional; we only got 2 for free upon request. We would have thought of extending for another day and night, if only there were enough choices of place to eat. There’s only the restaurant inside Paras Beach Resort that require P150 entrance per head, consumable. We had our dinner there on our 1st night. And we did not bother to come back at Paras the next day. Luna Ristorante is just less than 100 m from the cottage though. But there’s only pizza and pasta. If only there were carinderias or eateries in the area, we would have survived.

    Hi! I’d like to confirm if the tour package is Php2,300 per person or is it for the whole group? We’re on a tight budget because weve just hit an escpade recently but we really want to go to Camiguin.
