Thanks to the previous reviewers, we had a fairly good idea of what to expect at Matabungkay. We traveled with a party of six and stayed in a 2-bedroom "family" suite for two nights. Foremost, I would say that we had an enjoyable time at this compact resort and that I would not hesitate to return. The rooms were clean... More

We had a superior deluxe suite and got a good deal in July (30% off the 6000 peso rate) but I don't think it's worth the full price. Security is good. Rooms have had a semi renovation but they are still a bit drab looking inside and out and the bathroom was not up to scratch because of the poor... More

Old and run down. The room is spacious and the resort is big with a lot if facilities but not worth the room rate. We had lunch at the coral beach resort and that seemed like a much better option for the same price. The restaurant at coral beach was nicer and the resort was closer to the beach.

We had a long road trip and saw a sign of Matabungkay Resort. We decided to check out the place and it's been ages since the last time we were here. Matabungkay was a very famous beach resort when I was still a kid in the late 70's and we spent our summers here many times. We went straight to... More

Room : OK but not worth the money you'll pay for it. The single beds were not good at all. Bathroom: OK / no bidet FOOD: TERRIBLE! We ate dinner, breakfast and lunch.. tasted not good at all.. I suggest that if you want to visit Matabungkay Beach, stay somewhere else. :-)

I feel sorry that I have only discovered now the Matabungkay Beach Hotel since I live in Balayan Batangas for 10 years. My friends in Bacolod City have visited me and I need a place for them to stay. I am really grateful that my feet have led me to find a very good place like Matabungakay Beach Hotel which... More

Left my electric tooth brush when I left, and went back after about 2 hours to be told that they did not find anything in the room. The restaurant did not serve food of the quality for the price they are charging. Room service very slow.

I recently celebrated my birthday here 1st weekend of March and I can say that there are noticeable room improvements since our last visit which was around 2011. Their deluxe rooms can already accommodate up to 3 persons. Comfort rooms where also renovated. The staff, as always where all nice, friendly and accommodating. An added attraction is the newly-opened beach... More

We chose the place to celebrate our 5th anniversary yesterday and decided to bring our 2-year old daughter with us. I must say that we are very satisfied with the place. The room I reserved is just a deluxe with a single queen size bed considering that our Kid will just sleep beside us, but they gave us a much... More

We've been to Matabungkay for an ocular inspection a couple of years back and I'd agree with the very bad reviews based on that previous visit. The rooms were rundown. The place looked more like a dungeon than a hotel. The food was fine though so when we went back to the area a few months ago, my friends and... More
