No beach as only stones and concrete, but can still go for a swim. Big swimming pool. As it was off peak season,... More

We drove to Vistamar to look at it and decided to stay for a few hours. We paid to eat in the restaurant and use the beach. We were three adults and a child. The total for the day was 1500 PHP which included an excellent lunch, use of the beach and food. The food was very good and service... More

I wanted to take my family for snorkeling and possible diving during the short Holy Week break. SInce Anilao Batangas boasts of the many scenic diving sites, I opted to consider VistaMar, a reasonably priced resort with the diving amenities. However, the reviews almost made me changed my mind... but decided to make it a try when I was assured... More

Went there last May 2009, and to tell you the truth, I would not recommend it to anyone even my worst enemy. First off there is no service to talk about since at check in except for someone accompanying you to your rooms, there is no assistance whatsoever. Our first room we took the deluxe room with "air conditioning" and... More
