We just stayed overnight in Concepcion at the Sand Bar Island Beach Resort. This is the only accommodation option in the island (which is privately owned). There was a family of caretakers inhabiting it.

The cottage is very basic, it's just literally an empty room. No fan, no nothing. Just a light bulb you can use at night at a limited time. Generator is only being used until 10:00 PM. You will just be given the beddings upon check-in. When we were there, we don't need a fan because it was so windy. I'm not sure during summer though. Cottage rates were a bit pricey, I know. Maybe you're paying for the privateness of it and you have no other option.
I recommend this place mostly to a large group of travelers (4 or more pax). It can be very expensive for solo and couple travelers. Even the Island Hopping Tour is better done by a group. It is PHP 1000 for 3 islands and 1500 for 5 islands. You will not enjoy its worth if you think it's burning your pocket. But overall, we had a nice stay in the island even for a short time. We might go back too but probably with a bigger company next time.
