A hidden gem, a restful place..

Updated: Nov 28, 2021

We took a few days to visit Gwandalan Guest House based in Dipolog City, Zamboanga del Norte, Philippines. Gwandalan guest house opened its doors in 2018 with a goal to provide exactly what their name directly translates; “A restful place”. They have successfully done this through numerous positive feedback and repeat visits from their customers in the last couple of years! has awarded the humble B&B with the Traveller Review Awards in 2020 for an impressive review score of 9.3 out of 10.

Gwandalan guest house prides itself for their customer centric and home-vibe customer service approach – from their room accommodation all the way to their humble, cozy café service at “Café Iluminada”. Gwandalan guest house is one of the up and coming B&Bs in the area that are putting tremendous efforts in reducing their carbon footprint.
