Alon Surf Stay, located in Baras, Catanduanes, is one of the few hotels nearby the famous, isolated cove Puraran Beach. The beach is known for its fine cream-colored sand and raw, unspoiled seaside rock formations. You can sit all day by the shore as it hardly gets crowded. Puraran is also blessed with swells that draws surfers from all over the world. Seasoned surfers enjoy the Pacific waves that goes six feet and over during the typhoon season.

Staying at Alon Surf Stay was one of the highlights of my travel. I stayed here for three days and two nights. I will never forget enjoying a cup of coffee here while the sun is rising, overlooking the beautiful, majestic Puraran Beach. Only Alon Surf Stay offers this breathtaking view as it is the tallest building in the area.

The food was exceptional and the staff were incredibly attentive. Inform them the food you want to be served ahead of time and they'll cook it for you. Royal treatment, isn't it? Two thumbs up to Jhen and Carlo, the couple who manages the hotel.

I have learned that they're both from Manila, making me feel more comfortable roaming around the island. We shared so many stories including our thoughts on the current national issues. They have lovely, respectful kids named Clea and Ruppa.

Alon Surf Stay is very cozy, well kept and is very well run. The hotel has an infinity pool, overlooking the Puraran Beach. I will surely come back here. I could not have been more pleased with my weekend getaway!
