Guimaras Accomodation: Raymen Beach Resort

Raymen Beach Resort is located at the heart of tourism center of Nueva Valencia, Guimaras in Sitio Alubihod where the white sand Alubihod Beach is located. Alubihod, Nueva Valencia is 1 hour away from Jordan Port of the island. Traveler can reach the resort via a private hired tricycle or public jeepney from the port. Along the one hour travel to Nueva Valencia, you will pass thru the center town and capital of the province, Jordan and the endless mango plantations of Sibunag municipality. 

Enjoying the amenities of Raymen Beach Resort.
As you go nearer the resort, thick vegetation of low lying shrubs and endless coconut trees will greet your way. But do not be afraid, the scenery around Nueva Valencia is just like the other provincial scenes in the rest of the country. We arrived at 7 in the evening in the resort, so imagine the trees along the shadows of the dark road leading to Alubihod. As I’ve said do not fear, as nearer the resort there are lights already from the resorts and nearby small sari-sari stores (a sign of civilization for me, hehe…). We decided to take a dinner right away with an order of Pancit Molo from the resort’s own restaurant.  

We availed a PHP1,500 rate air-conditioned room good for 4 person. Our room was very clean and well-maintained including the private restroom. The room we had is also big enough to accommodate additional 2 more guests. But the beds were just good for 4 persons. We also had our own TV and we were provided with toiletries and towels. Raymen Beach Resort also offers non-aircon rooms in nipa hut style accommodation.

But in case you change your mind, Raymen Beach Resort is squeezed in between of two other resorts and also shares the beach front of Alubihod Beach. Rico Beach Resort on the right side and Alobijod Cove Resort on the left side are the two other resort. But I would highly recommend Raymen Beach Resort over them as base on my observation and other accommodation review, Raymen has the best option and amenities for budget traveler like me. Maybe Rico has the advantage in terms of seascape scenery as their share of Alubihod Beach has rock formations which were perfect for photo opts. Guests of the resort can visit the rock formations without a fee and those who wished to visit the resort’s beach and the rock formations for the sake of pictures need to pay an entrance fee to Rico Beach Resort. Their share of Alubihod Beach is separated by buoys from the sand to the waters of the beach.

I would say that the price rates at Raymen Beach Resort were affordable for budget tourist like me. Rooms are big enough for families or bardaka on vacation. I say the price worth the room amenities you will get this resort so I highly recommend this resort if you will stay at Alubihod. The staffs of Raymen Beach Resort were also friendly and accommodating to us especially when we inquire and avail of their island hopping tours of Guimaras islands. Raymen Beach Resort has own boat for rental island hooping tour. Their rate of PHP500 per hour and PHP100 for the succeeding hour is the same as the other bankeros who were offering island hopping of Guimaras. The itinerary of the islands is also the same with other bankeros plus Raymen’s boat has life floating jackets in case of emergency or for swimming.

I would recommend to visitors of Nueva Valencia, Guimaras to stay here at Raymen Beach Resort. Accommodation is nice, clean and on-standard. Plus the front beach of Alubihod is gorgeous which the resort also cleans everyday from litters and dried leaves. A stay in Raymen Beach Resort will enable to you maximize also your budget for accommodation with its on-standard and complete facilities as well as amenities. My experience was beneficial to me which I was doing a DIY Guimaras-Concepcion, Iloilo during my 2012 visit to Guimaras.
