We were here on a day tour as it was recommended by a friend member. We found the place out of order, tall grasses around the property and needs lots of maintenance. Nowhere close to Batis Aramin where we were booked that night.

We haven't checked in yet and we already encountered a problem. When we arrived at the main gate of Pueblo por la Playa, we were treated badly by the security guard. He asked what is the purpose of our visit, obviously we're there for vacation. He asked if we are members, we answered no. He then told us the resort... More

The word that fits best when you arrive at this property is a magnificent Mexican inspired tropical paradise where you can experience a very close to real Mexican culture. The food in Café OAXACA is made tastier to eat on its Mexicanized cuisine with a Pinoy twist. This is more than the usual resorts here in the Philippines. This Mexican... More

I don't usually write reviews but this beach resort deserves a full-on critiquing. I went home (to the Philippines) for my holidays and I wanted to have a getaway with my cousins, my partner and my auntie who also came from Italy. So, we had this 3D/2N trip at Pueblo por la Playa in Pagbilao, Quezon. IT WAS THE WORST... More

We had huge issues with this property. My wife is from Lucena and we wanted to stay here with my parents to give our families a chance to meet. The grounds are nice and they have some great pools. We ran into a problem because while booking we were guaranteed that the villa we had booked had two bedrooms, for... More

The only thing good about this resort is a view of the swimming pool. We had difficulty getting into the place due to no sponsor. We had our 25th Wedding Anniversary celebration there and they wanted corkage fees for everything. We had chocolate candy bars for our guests and the corkage fee was 5 times the cost of the candy...

My family was very excited having the thought of going to this popular location in Pagbilao. It is a man-made white sand beach. It is like Graceland Resort/Hotel that they only accept members but recently they allow non-member. Upon arrival, the excitement lowered beacause of the disgraceful attitude of the employees. May I remind them that though we are not... More

We had our wedding there april 2013. As my wife is from Lucena. This place is the nearest venue we could think of. Since it is a members only. We had difficulty at first getting this venue because they were asking too many requirements from us. So we had a sponsor. Pueblo is not the best value for money. The... More

we stayed here march 2013. we love our room (no.2), we love the food in cafe oaxaca, we love our trip to beach (not the swimming in sea), we love the big swimming pool, and the services are great. i advise this for a big group of people to maximize the rate of room.

I spend one night at the resort together with my wife, sister and a friend. Pueblo is a talk of the town place to visit however during our stay we experience poor quality of service that includes the checking in, as the receptionist wasnt that proffesional enough to handle certain issues that we lay on them, Food is great, (probably...
