Concepcion, Iloilo Accommodation: Garilva Jun Bee Recreation Center

Jun Bee Garilva Reacreation Center is one of the main accommodation/inn when you stay in Concepcion, Iloilo. I learned about this accommodation in Concepcion thru Happy Sole and started contacting them for our stay in Concepcion. They also provide contacts for boatmen who render island hopping services to the island barrangay of Concepcion. As you know, Concepcion is not just mainland Panay but half of it is 16 islands towards Visayan Sea.

Concepcion is 3 hours away from Iloilo City. After a long bus trip, we alighted at Concepcion Public Plaza which Hotel Junbee is just 10 minute walking distsnce. But since we have bags, we rode a pedicab to the inn. Hotel Junbee is a three floor hotel which faces the shores of Concepcion Bay. It has a view deck for its visitors to appreciate the sea and the bay, where one can already see the islands of Concepcion from the distance. The accommodation is owned by Mr. Jun Garilva and Mrs. Rubenie Garilva who warmly welcome us at the inn’s entrance.

Hotel Jun Bee as it is also known for is a family owned accommodation. They are a well-known inn in Concepcion which partly because the owner, Mr. Garilva is a local councilor of Concepcion at that time. During my stay, me and my party only opted to choose a fan room good for 4 person. Actually, if you have extra money to spare they also have aircon room amenities (we were just on budget at that time because we came from Guimaras before our Concepcion trip). Both types of rooms are comfy and affordable. Our fan room was comfortable though the cushion beds are thin but understandable due to the type of room we acquired.

They also offer home cook meals to order at their kitchen and prices are affordable for budget travelers. Hot and cold water is free, just ask them. They have a 24/7 roving guard and staffs for security and the inn is generally in safe surroundings. But just like any other provincial towns in the country, the towns’ business closes as early as 7pm.

What I like about Hotel Jun Bee was their connection for accredited boatmen to tour their visitors to the islands of Concepcion. Prior to our arrival, our island hopping tour to Concepcion islands were already arranged by Hotel Jun Bee. So on our stay there, we didn’t have any problem anymore for our tour to the islands and our budget is already planned.

Our general stay at Jun Bee Garilva Reacreation Center is pleasant and affordable. If there would be any cons that would only be guest are not allowed to use the pool when you’re check-in in fan room accommodation. I also hope they do provide free breakfast packages to guests in the future. But nonetheless, Hotel Junbee is a highly recommended accommodation for visitors of Concepcion and to anyone who wants to experience its hidden gems.
