I am a very generous traveller with points, I can be satiesfied very fast. But this resort is runned down. Not to recommend any more to go. We went there for one night because one of my friends recommended the place. But bad to say: It must be a loooong time before. The houses are dark, dirty and full of... More

It used to be a great place when the original british owner was still alive and the one managing it. Now the resort is totally mismanaged by the present caretaker and this is partly due to the internal squabble among the caretakers themselves. The good: Place is surrounded by small islands and you can do kayaking around the area, cottages... More

We chose to stay here because of its isolated location--and it looked good in pictures. This may have been a gorgeous resort a few years back but now, it's a ratty place to be in. First off, the location itself may work for or against it. Have this resort been beautiful and not lacking, then its isolation would have been... More

Baras Beach Resort is an amazing place. A paradise on the beach and a dirty bug-infested dump. The site is a romantic tropical dream with coral beach and traditional cabins overlooking the inlet. A site earning one star. The cabins were completely ant infested, very dirty, and termite eaten. Slamming the door of my cabin, needed to close it, brought... More

Resort is in a good location but lacking in amenities and customer service is poor. We stayed for two nights and they only had chicken, shrimp and fish, despite the menu listing beef and pork offerings. The four people in our group even had to share two small bottles of Coke on our first lunch as it was all they... More

Everyone at least once dreamed to be on a desert island. Baras Resort is not on a totally desert island but the feeling is there. There are only individual chalets scattered in the nature with all sea view all around P1000, depends on the size. Of course it's a bit rustic and even if there is a shower you'd rather... More
