This is a very small town with friendly people and a beautiful sight of the Loboc river, but its important to note that the huts are precisely overlooking he river as one could think. There are however small decks on the riverside where one can have breakfast (bring your own food) there are no restaurants, markets, ATM, internet or any conveniences nearby.
The room at Nipa Hut is in disrepair and small but has a" flush it yourself" toilet and good pressure shower facility (no hot water) is equipped with a mosquito net and toilet paper. Two pillows. Overall is a one night stay kinda room. Just Ok to land if you don't know anywhere else around and you wish to do river activities, Electricity can go out at any minute so bring a flash light, and be prepared to get ripped off by the locals.
I arrived on a taxi from the ferry port about 30min from the destination. Archibald, the host was very helpful and willing to take me around on his bike, since distances are too far and remote to walk. He took me to in and out of my main destination: The floating restaurant, ($450p ticket for lunch and a river trip). He arranged dinner at the nearest by stay "Stand-UP" which I would recommend instead. STU has similar rates, a friendly restaurant and Wi-Fi access. Archibald was always very attentive, the only downside was the mega inflated transport arrangement $500p on a broken Tuck Tuck he cahoots with a pusher friend, but I figured that he tip himself for the rides and hosting.
