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.

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

The setup is with food package, which we where a bit skeptical to, but positive surprised for the food quality, which was really great, three courses meal... More

1. We had to ask for the WELCOME DRINKS to be served! Imagine, we had our drinks as we were eating our dessert. 2. The staff didn't bother to help when we inquired for the banana boat ride and island hopping activities. I know he is a staff in the restaurant, but he could have use his company provided mobile...

Bamboo Cabana- Comfortable! Despite having no air-conditioning. (And area was quiet enough for a Holy Week trip). Beach- Clean (except that trash from the adjacent resort was blown to Virgin Resort's side but was immediately cleaned up). Food- Very Good (variety, quality, and taste are remarkable) Service- B-A-D.
