Bucas Grande Accommodation: Bucas Grande Balanghai Hotel



Bucas Grande Balanghai Hotel may not be at par with its sister hotels, but it serves weary travellers well. While its sister hotels, Club Tara and Butuan Balanghai Hotel, have updated amenities, its wall paint is fading, its structure is old,  and its rooms are basic and bare. It is as if time never passed and it remained in the dark ages. (okay, that’s too much. lol)




Located just a few meters from the Socorro Port, it is easy to spot and just outside its gate are carinderias (eateries) that open as early as 4am and close at 8pm. The wet market can also be found within the vicinity, which means that you can buy fresh seafood and request the nearby restaurants to cook it for you.



Room Rates are as follows:

Php 600/aircon room, triple sharing
Php 150/extra person



GOOD:  close proximity to the port, marketplace, and eateries. clean. en suite bathroom. affordable. kind staff.
BAD: old building. no generator and no window screen, but not a problem as long as there is no power outage.

  1. thank you very much for this info. Is this the most ideal place to stay at and billet when you want to tour around bucas grande? I heard about tiktikan lake resort too am not sure how far and convenient this hotel is from all the must-see places….thanks

    • this place was very ideal for us.. and i would definitely recommend to budget-conscious travellers.

      we visited Tiktikan Lake, but didn’t see a resort in the area. although some researchers were there and were staying in a “kubo” when we visited.

      thanks for dropping by! i will be posting about Club Tara Beach Resort in the coming days. you might want to check it out.

  2. The place looks like my relatives’ house in the province, so it does look homey to me. Reasonably priced too. Now I just gotta wait for the opportunity to visit Bucas ;p

    • it looks more like Grandma’s old house in the province than a hotel.. serves weary travellers well. kulang nalang mainitinit na soup pagdating ng mga bisita pagkatapos ng tour. 🙂

  3. Thanks po dito… May ma sa suggest akong matutuluyan sa mga friends…:)
