For inquiries and reservation, call Ms. Len-Len at cell number (0916) 4611742 or Roldan at (0909) 6402996.
Make sure it’s not low tide on the day you want to book with La Basilia. The beach is not that good for swimming since the shoreline is too far from the resort. Extra drinking water and food will come in handy as there is not much choice in the island.
