    Hotel Maefinn in Bayawan. Great restaurant too. Cañamaque Royal Suites Apartment Hotel if looking for bare bones but clean. No elevators in town yet. Nice beach & food at Talipapa. Several other smaller food fares along the boulevard. Getting ready to open a large mall next month. Hopefully it will bring some more restaurants. About 20km north you will find Funtasea Resort. Several small resorts along the way. It is slow so if you are looking for companionship bring it. Beautiful sunsets.

    One - one way to spoil a "treasure" is to advertise it and then over populate it. Two - no matter how big the store is, until they learn how to properly run the supply/order chain, it will just mean more space to be "out of stock".

    Yes it is. In that respect. Surprised no one has shot me. Yeah, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil... amazing how well this works... maybe you should try it Glendazumba then you won't keep being so negative on Bayawan … you might even find you like it.. take a walk on the wild side...

    Bayawan got a decent hospital (ACE) also in the last year. And there is another mall (Primark) being planned or under construction in Bayawan.

    - I've eaten, but not stayed, at the Hotel Maefinn. I was already booked somewhere else (at the C&L), but I asked them if I could see the rooms and they looked nice. The Maefinn is where I'd stay next time based on what I saw and other's reviews.
    - The food at the Maefinn's restaurant was OK, and they did serve some Western style dishes. Ambience very "Western" comfortable. Just a tad pricey by Bayawan standards, if I recall correctly.
    - The C&L hotel, right across the street from the new mall, is OK, but it's gone downhill somewhat in the years since it opened. I believe it's a little cheaper than the Maefinn and serves free breakfast. Hopefully they will spruce things up to take advantage of the business the mall should bring.
    - If you don't mind "local" but still similar to Western style food, you might be OK with Mang Inasal and Jo's Chicken Inato (both are Filipino BBQ chicken chains). And not too expensive if you're going to have to take a bunch of family members out to eat :smile:
    - One other place, Talipapa, local style food, open-air, casual atmosphere, is a nice place to have a few cold ones and watch the sunset. It's seaside near one end of Bayawan's very long "Boardwalk" (actually a boulevard).

    Bayawan is really too far from Dumaguete. Going there to shop would burn a lot of time so most likely the new mall will only survive if people in Bayawan and nearby towns like Santa Catalina and Basay will all go and shop there. It will surely have plenty of shoppers during the fiesta of Bayawan, hopefully.
