It was where we stayed for 3 days and 2 nights. This family-owned and operated guesthouse offers pretty basic but clean and decent accommodation, perfect for backpackers and budget travellers. Set in a beautiful tropical garden, each fan-cooled nipa hut cottage is equipped with a private bathroom and a queen-sized bed with a mosquito net.
One thing that I didn’t like about the rooms though was that the toilet bowls were set too low which makes it uncomfortable to sit on.
The resort also has a duplex cottage which is normally being rented to groups or families. The duplex has a kitchen with a dining table, refrigerator and a gas range, great for those who like to cook. During our stay, we rented one of the rooms in the duplex and we were allowed to use the kitchen and its facilities with no extra charge. They also have a sari-sari store across the street, and they could cook for you upon request for a minimal price.
Drawbacks of the guesthouse were the lack of internet access and that electricity is only available from 8AM to 12MN, which is the same case for most of the accommodations in Poblacion, San Vicente. Despite its shortcomings, Erica’s Guesthouse would still be the best cheap accommodation you would find near the Long beach. The owners are very nice and friendly.

This is the other resort that we checked out when looking for an accommodation at Barangay New Agutaya. The resort looks clean and very comfortable and it’s price is reasonable. They have air-conditioned concrete rooms and nipa hut cottages. The only reason why we didn’t stay here was that we were traveling on a fixed budget. But for a more comfortable stay near the Long beach, this would be a good choice of accommodation in Barangay New Agutaya. Check out the GUEST REVIEWS HERE.
