“impressive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

The architecture is nice, the rooms in the main building are quite impressive as well - fluffy pillows, strong A/C, the comfort room is amazing.

Food is great, bulalo and bicol express are must-tries in the menu.

the beachfront is impressive too.

Pool is nice too, though the flooring is rough, a small rough play and you'll end up with some scratches.

Room Tip: if you are a pool person, get the gazebos. wake up and jump right in.

We stayed here for our company outing last March, its a bit pricey for me, but the Amenities are worth it. Nice stretch of fine sand, great pool and nice rooms.

The only downside for me is that the pool edges are too rough. That's about it.

Went here with my friends, a month ago. Oyeah, it was big and they have a really nice pool. The food is fine. So do the service. There are so many places to take pictures. I just love the architecture.

Well, my friends booked our stay here and so I was just being led by them. I had no expectations whatsoever. So when we got here, I was surprised to see this kind of architecture in Batangas, Philippines. It's very cool! It's not very tropical like. It's modern and yet relaxing. The color of the paint of the walls is nice. It's a good backdrop. I think this place is nice for weddings.

The buffet was so affordable because it comes with the package of our stay. There was Mongolian (they will cook it for you) and then pasta, and of course Filipino food.

The restaurant was very cozy. The dining set was hard wood. It was very heavy, so you know it's not cheap. I really like it.

Going here is easy. It took us roughly 2-3hours from manila. We paid Php9,000+ for 1 night, total of 4 persons (room is good for 2, additional person rate is Php1,000+).

The beach view from our room is superb. Our room overlooks their infinity pool but the terrace is temporary locked (or maybe permanent).

The infinity pool is okay, BUT the tiles and inner wall of the pool is very rough, which can cause minor bruises, which I experienced, if you happen to slip or something.

Beach is okay, IF and only IF it's currently high tide
If you happen to experience swimming there on a low tide, you'll walk 5 to 10 mins before reaching chest deep water. Sand is not that white.

Buffet food is crappy and overpriced. Don't pay for the dinner buffet which costs roughly Php500/head. The buffet catered fried chicken, head of tilapia, garlic rice, seafood pasta and mixed vegetables. You can easily distinguish the quality of how the food is cooked.

Despite food variety and taste, their room and service is excellent.
But I'd rather try Acuatico next time.

this is a hotel like resort with an infinity pool. rooms are ok and they have a play area for kids. BUT they need a lot of improvement with the food. very limited menu and a lot of the dishes listed on the menu are not available. location is far from other restaurants so guest have no option. i don't think i will come back to this resort considering i had better experiences with other laiya sa jusn resort.

Room Tip: i would choose another resort with better food

Place
It's not that crowded, they manage to accommodate 6 companies without over crowding the place so that’s a good thing for us a plus.

Pool
Rough edges, it’s not slippery but it’s a bit spiky so you still need to watch out for those edges.

It’s warm water not sure if it’s because there are a lot of kids in the pool and didn't manage to get off the pool to go to the restroom :P

Cabana
DIRTY!
Restroom:
Shower area – dark spot everywhere, lamps are dirty and there’s some yellow thing on the lamps not sure if is part of the design of the lamps but I doubt it because I scratch it and it fell.
Room:
You’re Standard Room, enough to have 1 extra bed. Only Rooms has a A/C the living room has fan and don’t open the window on the back door or else you will smell something you will not like.

Beach
There’s still some trash on the water but overall it is clean. Try to wait till the low tie and walk around on the beach you will see different kind of creature (star fish, fish and etc)

Food
Almost all of us didn't like the food, the lunch and dinner even the breakfast. It’s bit sad because when we went and do a ocular the foods are delicious.

Service
Are ok.

Room Tip: Try to wait till the low tie and walk around on the beach you will see different kind of creature (s...
