Once you have made your mind up that Sabang is where you want to stay, your next choice is where should I stay.
Each Sabang Beach Hotels will be different and I guess I can use the term "hotel" fairly loosely. Why? Well mainly because you have such a huge range to choose from.
You can stay in simple huts by the beach or on the side of the hill overlooking Sabang and the magnificent water. These huts are more suited if you are on a very limited budget and usually have very basic amenities.
From these huts I guess anything is better. There are numerous cottages and hotels which, can offer either full hotel service, to fully equipped kitchens. Just about all accommodation in Sabang Beach will have a fridge, either a mini-bar in hotel rooms to larger fridges in self contained apartments. Always remember to bargain with whomever is offering you the accommodation, you will be surprised with the outcome of your efforts!
Sabang Beach Hotels - The Hillside
By far the best aspect of Sabang Beach Hotels is the fantastic views and the afternoon sunsets. Just for a minute let yourself wonder off to Sabang Beach and think of yourself on the veranda of your hotel room at dusk drinking a beverage of choice watching and collecting the last rays of the sun....okay thats enough dreaming, snap out of it, the reality is far better than the dream.
Sabang Beach Hotels - Which should I choose?
There are a lot of good Sabang Beach Hotels, all with pretty much the same facilities.
Atlantis Beach Resort
The Atlantis Beach Resort in Sabang beach has an incredible amount of repeat customers, it is not unusual to chat to people staying there and finding out this is there second or more time to stay here.
Capt'n Greggs Beach ResortCapt'n Greggs is right on the water, as you can see from the photo.
It is a budget hotel, but don't let that put you off, the rooms are clean and tidy, the staff are friendly and the rooms have recently had an upgrade.
Captn Greggs has a certain amount of charm that comes from being one of the oldest hotels in Sabang. You cannot buy charm, it comes automatically from all the little things the staff do that you don't realise.
Mermaid Dive ResortThe Mermaid Dive Resort is not on the beach in Sabang, which is good and bad, depending on what you are after.
It is in the heart of the action, so to speak. The good thing about the location is that it is back from the bars and nightclubs and is slightly secluded.
One thing that you should know is that the resort is located on the one road that comes and goes to and from Sabang, so it could get a bit noisy with jeepneys and bikes motoring up and down the hill.
But as for location, it is hard to go past its convenience.
