After our Guimaras countryside tour, we went to check out a resort in the Guisi beach area. We already saw the Raymen's resort during the tour and we felt that we need a more serene place.

Kuya Gerald (our driver/tour guide/photographer) led us to one of the few resorts in the place - the Clearwater beach resort (the other one by the way is the Kenyama beach resort which is located in an uphill part but they share the same shoreline.) We didn't bother to check Clearwater's facilities anymore 'coz when we heard their fan room rate of 700 pesos per room we just agreed right away.
Clearwater is a simple beach front resort. It has nipa hut type cabanas in front with a good view of the beach and the Guisi lighthouse. It has a common bathroom and toilet for the twin and quad sharing rooms. It has a store where you can buy stuff that you might just need 'coz the accommodation doesn't include anything - no towels, soaps, shampoo, etc. We also saw some men working on some improvements on the resort. There's this countryside feel in the place especially when you hear the caretakers speak their native language.

When it's time for us to check out we asked for our bill. And while Kuya Gerald was waiting for us (we asked him to fetch us - 500 pesos for that), we saw that our bill was 990 pesos. Here's the breakdown;
700 pesos for the room
160 pesos for the breakfast (for two)
30 pesos for the 500 ml. mineral water
100 pesos for the corkage fee

The Clearwater beach resort is a no fuss/no frills kind of resort. Here's the thing, if you're a sucker for room service and first class accommodation then Clearwater resort is not for you. But if you're after the beach and the exclusivity of the place, regardless of the accommodation, then go ahead and book there.

lukso ng dugo?!
Good thing was that we owned the resort and the beach during our 19-hour stay. The Clearwater's beach front resort (I believe) will be better after the renovations and you might wanna say hello to a very friendly monkey there for me. For inquiries about the contact numbers just e-mail me.
