I am usually sad to see a beach trip end. It wasn't so with this one. The property is very nice. It's situated in the nice part of this strip where the beach is without rocks making it ideal for swimming. But that has everything to do with nature and nothing to do with the resort itself. The people running... More

We have heard of this resort having a great location and good food. So we decided why not try it! We loved that casitas are right on the beach and are a comfortable size. But the lack of warmth and smiles from the staff was really disappointing. It was like a dark cloud hanging over their heads and did dampen... More

If you're into soul-searching, meditation, quiet solitude, then this is the place for you. The airconditioned casitas have no TV sets, which is perfect because what else do you do inside your room except sleep and get dressed? Oh, you may want to consider getting a massage, which at 300 pesos/hour is quite a steal. The sands are off white... More

Pros The area is easy to find. They have a huge beach. Lots of huts to choose from - dining parasol and the sleeping one. Efficient service. They also offer beach massages. No corkage as long as you pay the hut. Cons Expensive food in the restaurant. Beach is only open til five.

My family stayed here after Christmas. Such a peaceful and serene vacation place thats just conveniently 3 hours away from manila! Even though the resort was fully booked it didnt feel crowded at all. SUPERB FOOD: Food was great. We had buffet meals all the way and i like how the menu was carefully curated. Every mean there's chicken, pork/beef,... More

My husband and I wanted a quiet get-away at a beautiful beach not too far from Manila, and this is exactly what we found at Virgin Beach. We were fortunate in many respects: there were very few guests the day we went (the Sunday after Christmas), so we had the place almost entirely to ourselves (thought it had been fully... More

This is the place where I attended my cousin's wedding. The rooms are okay. I wish we had the room where there is a TV and WiFi. But overall it's a great place to relax. The weddings done here are very memorable. The only bad side is the reputation of beaches in Batangas, and that is the jellyfishes.

I really feel sorry for this resort. We took an impromptu trip out there on a non-peak day which turned out to be a total waste of time. Firstly, they had a rate for a night for a casita which was good for 4 people. We decided to go for this as there wasn't really anything else for 2 people.... More

I have stayed at numerous resorts across the Philippines over the last 10 years. Do not waste your time or money here. Too many negatives to list but the incredibly poor service / untrained/ unhelpful staff are up there with the worst I have every encountered in this country. No pool, swarms of jellyfish on a filthy beach and no... More
