Stayed with 2 other friends in their room for 4 pax at the back of the resort. The room was big with a private restroom. TV was small but with cable. Air conditioning was good and we had a wonderful and comfortable sleep. You can relax and drink beer by the pool area or the restaurant.

Happened upon this place whilst traveling in Northern Luzon. What a surprise! Great company (Trev from the U.K.), good food and plenty of cold beers. Decent rooms and a lovely pool right on the beach. A real hidden gem. Would highly recommend if you're in this part of the world and looking for a great little slice of comfort and...

Many thanks to Trev and his wife and staff for very friendly welcome after a long day's travel. The dining terrace is perfect place to sit back and relax with great food and a few beers. The pool is also immaculately clean and very inviting.

The staff are friendly and we were well-accommodated from the day that we arrived until we checked-out (we stayed from Sunday afternoon until Tuesday morning). Their standard room was spacious if you are travelling with a partner; comfort room is clean.

Hello, thanks for taking the time to submit a review, they are always welcome, and you were positive about us. Not sure what is meant about the tide?

Our family revisited Jotay Resort last June 2-4, 2016. This time around, we stayed in Rm 4, a family room fronting the pool. After 4 years, I would say, the resort has maintained its cozy & laid back ambiance that we fell in love with the first time we visited. It was home away from home after the long drive...
