“SWIM with the Sharks :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

This place is just 1.5 to 2hours away from manila. Easily accessible thru the South luzon expressway then Star Tollway. This resort was recommended by a friend who is into diving. I am not into diving... yet :) But want to go to a place where I could relax, near Manila, and could snorkel. The rooms are nice, place is clean, staffs are hospitable, and with a very sunset view :). They also have a small saltwater pool with live sharks (2-3.5ft long - baby sharks), big groupers (lapu-lapu), sea turtles, etc. You could swim with them and not be afraid. Regarding the food we recommend ordering ala carte than eating buffet. The BBQ squid is good. The price is just right. You could also go to a private white beach - sepoc island that is ran by Eagle point Resort too. But need to pay P2000 for a round trip back to resort (good for around 6 to 10 people - I think) So you can divide the charge between you guys. Overall - I would recommend this place.

Our stay at Eagle Point Resort was simply a spectacular experience. This resort, which is located at the foot of the mountain covered with lush vegetation, is facing the picturesque seascape. The whole scenery as its major attraction gives every guest the isolation they want from the hustle and bustle of urban life.

The wooden cottage house we got was just perfect enough to capture the day-to-day scenery: captivating sunrise and gorgeous,romantic sunset over the water; the view of colorful sailing boats and the impeccable horizon that cuts the marvelous sky and crystal blue water.

We love the interior of the room and the triangular wooden beams that support the ceiling.This adds more space and air to the clean room. The bathroom is big and cozy. The veranda is an awesome part of the room to relax and chill with some wine.

The resort has all the amenities to keep all the guests in activity.The manicured garden surrounding the cottages and pathways is very relaxing for eyes and mind.

Since the location is far from other establishments, the restaurant and bar in this resort are the only places to dine and chill out. The included breakfast buffet is far more than the average and the list in the menu for other meals is just fine for local and foreign guests alike.

The staff were friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Cottage area has a quieter ambiance than in the main building (most especially during peak/high seas...

it's a very charming place. way better than expected. i suggest tweaking their website to make it more appealing. i was never interested when i saw it on the web apart from the thought of 'swimming with the shark' but when we got there, i thought it was a worthwhile visit. our room (and restroom) is pretty decent and clean, staff are friendly and accommodating, rental for watersports equipment is fairly priced. as for food, better to opt for ala carte than buffet. their selection of grilled meat is a good choice, we particularly like the grilled squid served at the sepoc island. ala carte would cost about 550 per meal with good serving size. if looking for fine white sand, visit the sepoc island. boat to get there would cost about 2500 two way regardless of the number of passengers. sepoc island (another eagle point resort nearby) is more serene but corals at the main resort is just as nice, if not better. overall, it was a great travel destination. i wouldnt hesitate to visit the place again.

I Stayed at Eagle resort for a couple of nights as it’s very near to here I’m working (around 20km from the end of the Star tollway) I guess the review of any hotel / resort is based on the reviewers previous experiences and what expectations they have. This is certainly the case with a number of reviews for this resort.

The room I stayed in was supposed to be superior (TERRACE HOTEL SEA VIEW) which was one up from the standard room, I have to say although the room was clean it was very dated (Stained ceiling / pealing walls / cracked and broken tiles). The bathroom had a large shower which was somewhat wasted as the shower head only had on hole that let water out. The first night was very noisy as the next room was partying until 3am.

The best part of the resort was the pool bar which played some awesome music, Mary who served me drinks and always wore a smile and the restaurant, the buffet was excellent with plenty of choice.

I booked through Asia Rooms who gave this resort a two star rating which after consideration I think is fair.

If you’re travelling here from any distance bear in mind that it could take up to 2-hours to travel the 20km from the end of the star toll-way to the resort, all depending on the time of day and traffic through san Pascual and Bauan.

Room Tip: Go to a resort in Laiya rather than Mabini, takes slightly longer but far better resorts and beaches...

My family and I, only stayed 1 night at the resort but we had an amazing time. Nice room with 2 double beds. Amazing view off the balcony. Beautiful property. The resort arranged a banca to take us to an island to snorkel - it was great. There is also snorkeling available right in front of the hotel. Fun swimming pool with water slide and a game room for the kids.

I feel it is as important to know who is giving the review as the review itself. My wife (French), my 2 children (6 and 10) and I (American) work and live in Makati. We have lived here for 2 years and have traveled around the Philippines. We traveled to Eagle Point on July 28th to the 30th. Our reviews are from an ex-pats perspective.
This resort has a lot of potential, but is so run down it is just sad. It may have been beautiful at one time, but now it is in serious disrepair. The pool, with the slide (the main reason we went), was out of order and not working. Total disappointment for our kids.
The drive in was SCARY. I scrapped the bottom of my car trying to get over the lip to the drive way. The drive way was extremely steep, and only 1 lane. I had to back out to let traffic coming out of the resort pass. Once in, you are not leaving the resort until you check out.
For our standard Cottage Sea View Room we paid $211 for 2 nights Breakfast for 2. They charged us an extra 1000 peso ($25) per night for bedding, for the extra bed that was stored under the double bed, and an extra breakfast. Our 6 year old ate at half price. The room was big, but there were ants in the room (floor, bathroom), it was far from sound proof (We could hear the people next to us showering and talking). The towels were frayed and old.
The food was not very good either. We first sat at one table that was covered with ants and had to move. We paid on average 1800-2000 pesos a meal for food that wasn't worth the price.
The shark pool was cool to see. They had 5 medium sized Black-tip sharks, Puffer fish, a Grouper and other sea life. You can go in and swim with them. We all got in, but the water was so disgusting I was afraid to put my face in the water. They cleaned it the day we left, but it was a complete disappointment.
The resort also has eagles in cages around the resort. It's cool to see eagles, but sad to know they can't fly anywhere.
The best part of the time there was the trip to Sepoc island (2400 pesos). It took about 20 minutes to get there, and the beach was quiet and nice. We all snorkeled for a bit and saw a good amount of fish, once you got away from the beach. The water was clear, but the coral was pretty badly damaged.
Overall it was a diappointment. We wanted to get away from the city to relax, but instead felt more uneasy. We would not recommend this hotel to anyone, unless serious changes were made.

Room Tip: We had an sea view room, but never saw the sea- too many trees.

Good hotel, especially for divers. We stayed in very comfortable room with two big double beds that could easily accommodate a family of four. Beautiful view of the sea from the room.

Food at the restaurant is good, very affordable and wait staff are super friendly.

Our group rented a boat to spend the day at a neighboring island with a beach ( because the hotel doesn't have a beach on the premises) complete with freshly cooked lunch. I would totally recommend doing this during your stay.

All around a very comfortable stay with friendly service. I would definitely stay here again.
