“Relaxing!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

Beautiful resort and nice rooms! The snorkeling was great. Only downside was they charge you to have visitors come onsite and its far from and citys or shopping so if you just need a get away and want to relax at the hotel its great! Also the wifi didnt work great in our room, we had to be near the restaurant. Great security!

We went to Eagle Point Resort on a day trip from Manila and had a fantastic time. We plan to make this a regular weekend activity based on the great time we had.

We left Manila at 7am, for a leisurely and easy 1.5-2.0 hour drive to the resort. Upon arrival, we availed of a day tour package I had confirmed by email. It included a nipa hut cabana with bed, bathroom with shower and a pleasant little patio with decent view of the ocean. Full use of the facilities and lunch and afternoon snack were provided. The pool area is nice with lounges available and view of open sea. Facilities are nice... 3-Star quality.

There's no beach, however a short banca boat ride takes you to what we found to be a very pleasant private beach area (Sepoc Island) that is managed by the resort. Our set meal was willingly packed up into containers and loaded on the boat to eat on the beach. At the beach area, there is a large covered patio type area with lots of tables and chairs, as well as tables & chairs in the sand on the beach under some pleasant shade trees. You can get any number of drinks there at the beach.

One of the most pleasant surprises was the quality of the reef area there at the private beach. The reef is in very good condition and we spent the day snorkelling there at the beach. In fact, we chose to remain there instead of going by banca to the other quality areas nearby. Fantastic!

The rental gear is in average to poor condition, so set your expectations accordingly... If you're super picky, bring your own stuff.

We were very well taken care of by Ms. Grace Claud, the activities manager there at the resort, who suggested our mobile meal arrangement, handled our last minute reservation of a banca, and generally looked after our enjoyment. Everyone at the resort was super polite.

We are looking forward to coming again.

Ive been diving in the Philippines for almost six years and was invited by my friends to join them at Eagles Point Resort,
Just want to share how absolutely poor service they have and people are not friendly at all especially dive facility, equipment is unsafe to rent from the shop its old looks like never been serviced all tanks are leaking underwater. During our dives the guy who manages the dive shop will just seat and watch people crawling out of the water on the knees and no one will help you to even hold the fins. After telling him we will be doing night dive he obviously was pissed off coz he wanted to close the shop earlier. AND HEY BTW SHARKS ARE BELONG TO THE OCEAN NOT IN YOUR FILTHY POOL!!!!

Highly recommend this resort whether for a diving excursion or not. Loved their shark pool. Great for snorkeling! Diving was wonderful. Both dive and hotel staff very helpful and accommodating. Resort itself very nice with good food, even if you have the preplanned menu option. I did not know that this is what I had arranged until I got there, but we ended up very pleased with all the food they served us. Could have upgraded to a more varied buffet, but it wasn't necessary. Would stay there again!

I must admit, I was pleasantly surprised when I stayed at Eagle Point. I only chose it because all my other options were fully booked for the weekend. But the moment I arrived, I really felt like my mini vacation had begun. The staff were really friendly, the cottages well-maintained, and the other amenities certainly did not disappoint. I would go back if I wanted to go diving.

AMENITIES
I'm gonna state it right now--if you're looking for a beach vacation, don't stay at Eagle Point. It doesn't have a beach outside the hotel; only rocks and coral. They do have a private beach, but it's in another island and you have to rent a boat for P2,240.

I really love their rooms though! We got the seaview cottage with a terrace that's really overlooking the sea (no misleading claims here). The bathroom was clean, spacious, and stocked with basic toiletries. None of those shared toilet-shower spaces, thank God. The airconditioner worked fine, and they even provide you with bottled water (non replenishable though). The room has a flat screen TV and decent channel options. There's even a closet for you organize your clothes.

There are two pools, one at each end of the resort. They're great, with the bigger one even featuring a slide.

If you're having big group activities, you can rent function rooms.

The dining area is very well furnished, and overlooks the sea. It is honestly a pleasure to have meals at Eagle Point.

PRICE
We paid around P3,400 for the seaview cottage, booked with a discount via Agoda. Pretty good deal, considering the quality of the room. But while we got a good deal with the room, Eagle Point charges you a lot for almost everything else. Want to snorkel? Rent a mask for P250. Want a life vest with that? That'll be P325 total. Kayaking? Sure, if you can fork over P450 per hour. Not to mention the charges for scuba diving lessons.

The price for food was not that bad; you'll probably spend around 300-500 per order. Sometimes they have buffets, which cost P600.

STAFF
The staff are all very courteous and friendly. They'll really go out of your way to help you out.

ACCESSIBILITY
Eagle Point is a little hard to find, being way off the beaten track of a tiny barangay. Once you get there, there's space for parking. A van will bring you from the parking lot to the actual resort, since the resort is at a much lower altitude than the parking area.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Getting There:
I drove from Manila and getting to Eagle Point Resort was very straight forward. You simply follow the same route for most all the Anilao resorts. There are signs that provide distance to the entrance.

Arrival and Check-in:
Once you arrive at the parking area, you will be met by a mini-van that will drive you and your luggage to the check-in reception.down a steep, winding road to the reception area. The area you check-in is in the same building as the restaraunt. Check-in was efficient and soon we were taken to our room.

Room:
We booked a Superior Room in the Terrace Hotel. The list price was Php 6,000 but we recieved a 30% discount and it included free breakfast. The room was very nice, well appointed with air-conditioning, satellite TV and a small refrigerator stocked with drinks. The bathroom was nice, clean and had a large shower. While it took a while, there was hot water for the shower. Unfortunately the water pressure for the shower was pitiful. It was limited to the shower as the water from the sink had plenty of pressure. It is a shame that such a great room experience was ruined by the shower pressure.

Resort:
Eagle Point is one of the few resorts I have experienced where the pictures on the Internet match reality. The pool and facilities were clean and working. Drinks and food can be ordered near the pool and there is a poolside bar available also. The pool area restrooms were large and clean. Overall a very nice pool area.

Food:
Overall I would rate the food very good. There was only one dish I was disappointed with. The staff were very good a meeting special requests (stuffed grilled squid with extra chili peppers, keeping a coconut in the refrigerator to ensure every order of fresh coconut juice was cold, etc.) The service and the willingness to meet your special requests were excellent. The inclusive breakfast selections and portions were very good. In fact, all food portions were very good. My only complaint is how long it took to get the food after it was ordered. Dinner and lunch orders never arrived quicker than 30 minutes after the order was placed.

Dive Shop:
I was told that less than 10% of guests at Eagle Point Resort go diving. Perhaps that explains why the dive shop has been utterly ignored by the Resort. The condition of the dive shop does not match the rest of the resort, the rental gear looks like it should be scrapped. Overall, the diveshop is an after thought and that is a shame. The dive staff were very helpful and Eagle Point Resort house reef is beautiful with nice coral and some giant clams. I brought my own equipment, so weights and tanks were all I needed. A boat was arranged for a day of diving and once on the banca, it is standard Anilao diving. If you have your own equipment, I think Eagle Point Resort is excellent. I think the house reef has a lot to offer and if they could get more guests to use the dive shop perhaps it would be given the same level of treatment and care as the rest of the resort.

Cost:
Like many Anilao resorts, there are few options outside the resort...and they know that. Prices are high and a 10% service charge is included on all food orders. Prices do not include the 12% VAT, that gets added on at check out. So the php 400 meal you order in the restaraunt is actually a php 488 meal. Eagle Point Resort is not cheap a cheap stay.

Conclusion:
Eagle Point Resort is a nice resort. The facilities match the pictures you see on the Internet and if you can get a room with decent water pressure, you will not be dissapointed by the accomodations. The diving is nice as long as you bring your own gear. I would not advise renting anything. Food is good but a little expensive when service charge and VAT get added to the cost.

Room Tip: I have only stayed in the Terrace Hotel. Check shower water pressure before accepting your room.

The resort is difficult to get to due to the steep drive going to the resort. There is an armed guard at the gate. The armed guard is to keep people in the resort until they pay. They are not to keep people out. The price was high for the service we received. The rooms were dated. The food was pretty good. We snorkeled in a shark tank and that was fun. The diving was good although we took a boat to the dive site closer to other resorts. The view from the boat is a beautiful picturesque mountainous landscape.
