Reviewed 20 June 2014

At first when me and my Australian boyfriend travel from Manila going here we get bored .. but when we arrive at lian we feel excited but then again when we travel in the Trickel we get curious about the place and the road we taking because its 30 mins.and From lian we only pay 300 peso no more no less.
But when we arrive we both think that we will get bored here but its not the place was very peaceful and relaxing good for the people who needs or wants to relax.
Rooms need to be clean I had a lot wrist.Staff are friendly & helpful. Under new management they are on the right track. Would try again

We booked here with my friends and we stayed for just 2 days and a night. The service is good . Rooms and amenities are acceptable. I like atmoshere and the seaview and the pool from our room. We have a balcony facing as well with tables and chairs. They offers some activities like a boat trip to visit some small islands around the place. Boat rental cost P500.

Booked a Junior suite at Agoda, but the room was bit to small for a family of 4, the Manager offered us an upgrade to a large suite (for a smaller amount) which was just perfect!
The resort is build as a small castle, with really nice terraces and gardens and a small pool inside the yard.

The resort has three guard monkeys at the front gate, which can be a bit scary or funny if you like.

Food: Filipino style - all-though they can make some German dishes which a huge and tasty!
If you come for the beach, you will be disappointed, the water is not clear and there is garbage floating around.
However there are plenty of boats that can take you to nearby islands (10-20min) which a very nice, clear water and white sand beaches.

Overall a funny and cheap little resort, funny for a overnight stay in the weekend, friendly staff and management!

The things I love about our stay are
1.We arrived early at the hotel and they let us check in early for our convinience.
2. Rooms are spacious.
3.Toilet and bath are separated in all the rooms we rented. Spacious.The 1 junior suit we rented has it's own balcony and it's facing the beach.
4.My 4 and 5 yr old kids stayed for free.
5.Food was excellent. We paid 750/adult for fullboard meal . You'll get lunch and dinner with dessert and breakfast. Breakfast is free.Serving for me is good for 2. We didn't order extra for the kids. Tempura is delicious and they serve plenty for one person.
6.Hotel has it's own pool. No kids pool though.
7.Near the beach. Fine sand. My kids love it.
8. Staff are all nice and accomodating especially ate rose. The hotel manager is friendly and accomodating he's the one who answered all my emails. They are considerate.
9.They offer island hopping.
10. Value for money. You'll get more than you paid.

All in all my kids enjoyed our stay. My kids doesn't want to go home. :) If your going to Calatagan, Batangas White Castle Hotel is a must stay especially for big families.:)

Spent Valentines Day 2014 in this remarkable hotel.
> This is not a walk in resort if you want to appreciate the gastronomic delights that are available to you by booking in advance and prepared in some style by the owner and renowned Master chef Hans Boddecker.
> If fresh prawns served in a pineapple followed by mulligatawny soup in a coconut don't fill you then surely fillet of beef accompanied by a 25 herb butter sauce will.
> Fresh fruits with strawberry compote and fresh cream and the best schnapps in the world will just make your day complete.
> The ambience of White Castle is truly unique. The rooms are beautiful and spotless as are the grounds. Wait till you see the sunsets.
> The staff are so friendly and very attentive.
> My only negative is that White Castle could do with a few more directional signs as it is not easy to find the first time.

Very nice webpage and nice german agent. But when we came there it had a terrible smell from the dirty river at the back. Beach is full of garbage and price is like 5 star hotel. This Mr Hans Boedicher should go to jail for that. No food or restaurant nearby, very ugly road and unsafe parking area.

my fiance and I were planning some getaway for his birthday,so we end up checking the internet and came across this white castle thing resort which I said its nice and relaxing place to stay. We even called the said given information and booked on the date that we arei planning to celebrate his birthday. When we arrived at the horrible place, we are actually toured by what they called "ma,am" who doesn't even looked like one. She toured us in the resort and to my disappointment,I saw that dirty beach with a filthy smell,stray dogs and cats,a slum area and that swimming pool which I think has not been cleaned for ages. And the staff!!! They are so awful to the sense that you can see that they really don't have such education in running any establishment..So to my disappointment and dont want to ruin our getaway,we backed up and proceed to Ricky Reyes' Golden Sunset..
