Where to stay in Dumaguete City

The welcoming university town of Dumaguete has a number of accommodations to suit its many visitors, primarily located close to the sea. In the built-up waterfront area, luxury hotels form a major part of the modern commercial and entertainment developments, with coastal views and good access to the most upmarket eateries and watering holes. Look inland for plenty of guesthouses and rental accommodations in the student-heavy residential areas; here, these budget-friendly lodgings will still put you pretty close to the waterfront attractions.
