The beach is clean, clear and calm waters. But the resto staff is terrible. They are not attentive and often missing. You have to stand up and to look for someone to take your order or to ask for a glass of water. Food is overpriced considering it is nothing special. The beach front room is ok. We didn't stay...

Rustic and Serene... That's how I would describe it. My friends and I needed accommodations that would be affordable and comfortable. We were going to Puerto Galera for a biking trip. I chose Encenada because of its location. The beach is very private, located in a cove with calm waters. The staff and owners were very friendly, and accommodating... Going... More

I feel like crying when I entered their room. I want to ask them to return my money coz I'm willing to go back to Manila that same day but my husband stopped me being a nice person that he is. We didn't stayed at the resort at all. We just roamed around other places like White Beach and Sabang.... More

We spent a week at Loloy and Christie's relaxing resort. We enjoyed the best treatment, food and I loved the central living-eating area where we could hang out under the palm trees. The beach is private and there is lots of coral out in the bay to snorkel around. Loloy is great at organising day trips, romantic seafood dinners on... More

This is probably the best budget resort for miles around. The rooms are decent, but it's cold showers and no TV. The cool bit is the beach (mostly deserted) and quite clean, and the lovely staff and family atmosphere. Everyone was very accommodating and friendly. If you are diving in Sabang this is ideal, about a 10 min drive away... More

This is quite a late review. My family and I stayed there summer of 2012. Just wanted to say that we had a great time during our stay which coincided with a reggae festival at the resort. We stayed at one of the upper rooms. The room was practically bare, just a/c, beds and bathroom - but clean and serves... More

what can I say there is nothing to say in this place. Rooms are small, hot, bed are foul and smelly, never got a change of bed sheets for a 4 nights stay. Food is terrible and expensive. No other amusement just a pool table with a charge of 100, even have to wait because the family or relatives of... More

I've been going back here with family and friends and on the 30th I will be back again for their annual Reggae Festival on the 30th of May. This would be my first time to watch their event and I've been seeing a lot of good reviews about the event. With different local artists and games such as beach football.... More
