Rapitan Di Vasay Bed & Breakfast Basco Reviews

This is a cheap yet pleasant place to stay in Batanes. The room is spacious and airy. Bed is good and the whole place is like a colonial house including some of the furnitures.
They have cable TV and aircon altho we didnt use the latter bec it was cold in January.
The bathroom is a bit small and equipped with hot shower. They also have some soaps and other toiletries provided but I used what I brought. The provide a bath towel and face towel and change them everyday.
The bed is always made up and other things are tidied without touching much of your personal stuff.
Breakfast is available but is always late that we felt like we needed to provide a 30 min allowance to get our breakfast by the time we wanted.
The breakfast taste good and good portion. They also make an effort to serve different breakfast everyday which we appreciate bec we stayed there for one week. We liked the experience of eating flying fish for breakfast as well as fern salad. They always serve some vegetables and we liked that. We were only served with fruit once though and we wish they serve fruits on breakfast everyday.
We settled the room upon check in and the breakfast upon check out.
The staff were pleasant altho they are not very familiar with the info that tourist might need like where to eat or where to to some places. It will be great if the staff will have more info to share with guests.
The only comment I have on this place is the lack of privacy because the rooms have opening on the upper most of the walls so the noises from a room can be heard by other rooms. Also, the toilet and bath on the 2nd floor is shared by two rooms.
I believe this is best booked as a whole house by a big group. There is another room downstairs but we didnt see it and it has another toilet with bath there too.
The garden around the house is interesting.
Overall a pleasant stay and highly recommended if Fundacion Pacita is fully booked or over your budget.
