Reviewed 3 May 2012

Price - reasonable, value for money
Location - very good, quite near boat station but not too near. Also not in the night life noisy area, thought you may hear the people in the hallway.
Room - just the basics, no luxury, quite new
Toilet - quite new, just the toilet flush need my boy scout fix
View - other hotel beside it, no beach view
Other facilities: stand-by generator

Special thanks to Mr. Julius Datinguinoo. He give a travel guide with useful details, and there's a person to provide assistance (including buy tickets in advance) for us in Batangas pier, no additional charge.

Room Tip: Request for a second floor room if you do not like to walk stairs. The top floor is third floor. Fo...

went here with group of friends last 2008. the place was good because it is near the beach. the rooms are quite small but it's okei for an overnight stay. the food in the restaurant was quite expensive. if you are on a tight budget this place is okay.

friendly staff, good location, peace of mind, simple n easy atmosphere, best landscape view from the beach.

some fire show after 9pm onwards.

nothing fancy in the room, washroom was a bit old fashioned but clean, rooms have no view to the beach in front, average food in restaurants around.

Room Tip: you can book the room from Batangas (the boat shuttle station which is 1 hour from the island) &...

no hot shower in standard room, leaking taps, toilet flush not working!
other than these petty issues, i feel the stay here is not idea if you wanna feel like a beach get away..on the left hand corner of the beach there are much better & beutiful properties at cheaper rates...bamboo huts with nice gardens, hammocks, etc...
even the food at the restaurant is quite bad. thumbs down!
none of the rooms offer ocean view

This resort is a 3-in-one accommodation. My review contribution is pertaining to its restaurant. I've travel this time on a tight budget. After me and my wife survey all the beach front restaurant to get our meal and possible drink, we find this place perfect for our budget. They have both international and local dish on their menu. But this time we order both chicken and pork skewer grill. Their skewer budget meal comes together with a hot steamy rice, Php 100 per skewer. One thing I like this place also they sell the cheapest "Mindoro Sling". Only Php 150 per picher good for 4-6 persons. Not bad for a tight budget. In summary if you are in a tight budget trip this place is a perfect place to spend your money along white beach area.

we stayed here for only 1 night. i will recommend white beach resort for those people who have a tight budget. we are 5 so we get the family room which is good for 6 person for only 1500/night. it is spacious. 2 queen size and 1 single bed. its not that clean but if you are the cowgirl/boy type then you can live with it. the location is great. it is near the market and other establishments and night life. however, it is not a perfect place to relax because of noisy sorroundings and the shore is not the clean. many dogs are loitering. it doesnt have any other facilities aside from the canteen and bleachers infront that you wouldnt want to seat. but, i think if you will go there with friends and you just need a place to stay and spend most of the time at the beach.. i think this place might work for you.

NOTE: just additional tips. DONT YOU DARE RIDE THE KEMS BOAT. we just had the worst experience ever! it has only 1 boat so expect for the 3 hours delay and mechanical problems. we experienced over heat and theres a big smoke that just appear from the base of the boat. almost everyone are panicking because of the big smoke. just worst.

Room Tip: ask the receptionist for some arrangements.

Location is superb, but:
Room was dirty and lacked amenities promised on web site.
Only cold water in shower.
When we checked out after 1 night, staff began to threaten us: we must pay for 3 extra nights+ towel rack (which was already broken) etc....
We just left and never looked back. We found a really nice place at the same beach: Sea View Divers (http://www.seaviewdive.com/).
