If you are looking for 5 Star Fash Accom then clearly this is not the place for you. Same goes if you can't stand the native manyana atmosphere.
But for me I love the place. Quiet peaceful and I can relax.
If I want a beer or meal all I did was clap my hands and staff came running. Yes literally - they are too eager to please.
The restaurant has a deck strecthing out towards the sea amongst palm trees with real coconuts. Whenever you want a coconut or pina colada - No You don't have to climb a tree; but really, that is what they have the staff do to oblige. You don't get that at the Ritz now do you!
Okay so what if the rooms are very basic. I can live with that - but the beach and idyllic tropical environment make up multifold for in room tvs.
Regarding transport - private car or taxi can be arranged by contacting the resort at their Manila Office. The SiKat bus line is like most Local bus companies there. By the way the SiKat is not invovled with the resort other than it takes passengers to Puerto Galera every day (Starts off as a bus and then at Batangas Pier changes to a Ferry ) - some of the SiKat passengers stay at Encenada - and regulars dont mind the SiKat transport.
I go to the resort atleast once a year - and usually hire a provate car from Manila. If you are not familiar with bargaining in the thrid world I do suggest you get a resort guide or Encenada Staff to assist you arrange private car transport to and from Puerto Galera
