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

Went there a Saturday in February'14 and stayed for one night in one of the new Air-con villa's. Nice and clean, two queens size beds, which is great for a family of 4. 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.

Stayed for 3D/2N at the bamboo cabana with my wife, 2 kids and a yaya. Things I loved about the place: 1. The people. You treat them like friends and they'll treat you like royalty. We got special tables near the beach, barako coffee after each meal, iced water on the sand, extra time on the kayak--all the little extras... More

It is a good resort, trying to get the vibe of Bohol Beach Club, Pearl Farm, etc. Same price point, too. However, I'd say it is not as good as the other resorts for the price. Rooms were smaller, but the bathroom (in the aircon rooms) was quite big so that's a plus. The non-aircon rooms are so overpriced! It... More

The place is just a few hours drive from Manila, so it's the perfect destination when you just need to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Great service, with excellent staff! You need not worry about anything when you go to Virgin Beach Resort. Just show up and they will take care of you.

Virgin Beach Resort is a full service, worry free and reasonably priced resort that can allow visitors to take a break from the hustle and bustle of Metro Manila. It's worry free, hassle free service and you can just show up at the resort with your bathing suit, sunblock and wallet.
