There aren’t many options when it comes to sleeping on a budget in Port Barton.  This is a very sleepy beach town so the options are limited.  There are a few places along the beach, but after checking them out, we figured this is the most affordable and the best spot:

El Busero Inn

On the main road in Port Barton, on the beach, right near the terminal.

Room Info/Costs:

Located right on the beach with a nice open air restaurant, clean rooms and very friendly staff.  This is the best budget accommodation in town.

A room above the restaurant with shared bathroom costs 300-400p depending on your bargaining skills. They also have a few cottages but they cost 1000p. When we stayed here, everyone was staying in the rooms rather than the cottages. Try to get one of the 2 rooms with a sea view.

There’s a large communal balcony with 2 hammocks and a great view out to the Sea. Backpackers can be spotted here playing guitar, cards, reading or having a few drinks.

Pros: great owners and staff, good location, funky place, dart board and hammocks.

Cons: no fan in the room, food & beer at the restaurant is expensive compared to the rest of town.

  2. Hello,

    Thank you

  3. Thanks for the advice on where to sleep in Port Barton. My girlfriend and I are heading there in a few months. This is really going to save us a lot of time when researching places to stay!

  4. I am reading there is only electricity until midnight in Port Barton, so how is anyone going to sleep without a fan blowing

    I’m assuming of course the temperatures remain high at night there.

  5. I don’t know if that’s still the case, as we were there in 2012. But, our guesthouse was right on the water, so the breeze was nice and we didn’t need a fan.

  6. I find your blogs so informative, I’m new to backpacking and am currently staying in your recommended Dallas inn in puerto princesa, I love it here! We also tried the Vietnamese place for food that you recommended So will definately be checking out this accomodation in port barton. I’m struggling trying to get hold of the manager though, think the phone number nay have changed. Do they tend to be booked out or do you think they’re likely to have availability if we just turn up in a few days time? Do they have many guest rooms? Many thanks x

  7. Glad to hear that you’re enjoying our recommendations! Regarding Port Barton, when we were there, they just had the phone number. You could try them on Facebook maybe? Or or

    Good luck!
