Located by the quaint little town of Mauban, Quezon Province about 3-4 hours drive from Manila, beach lovers get to enjoy a 45-minute bangka ride to get to Pansacola Beach Resort in Cagbalete. For accommodations, nipa huts with lofts are available to give you the experience of "roughing it"-you'd be surprised at how the evening sea breeze beats your usual air conditioners at home. With the staple of five meals per day, you will surely get more than you bargained for when it comes to food. At low tide, the clear blue water is transformed into a massive expanse of sand, perfect for games with your friends. At night, be amazed at the wide blanket of stars on the clear sky.

It was our 1st time in Cagbalete & it never failed to amaze us with its beautiful scenery, white sand & clear blue water. It rained during our 1st night but it didnt ruin our vacation. The resort is at the tip of the island & it is like you are in a private island since it is secluded from the other resorts. We brought our own tents, cooking stuffs, water & food. 3d2n is still not enough to enjoy this beautiful island!

It was my first time in Cagbalete and I was stunned at how gorgeous the beach was, and Pansacola is right smack in the middle of all the beauty. The boats dock right in front of the resort so it has the absolute best location. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. They have a sari sari store in case you'd like to get some chips, soda, little toiletries, etc. Take note that if you avail of the whole day meals, the servings are rather big, so it might be more worth it to order a la carte at the kitchen. What I didn't like so much about the stay was that the other campers were quite noisy until very late at night. It was nearly impossible to sleep in our tents (not just because of the hot April weather) because of everyone drinking and playing their own music. The tents are pretty close together as well so you may want to bring ear plugs. My group wasn't the type of traveler that wanted a weekend to drink and party, we just wanted a relaxing weekend away from the city, but camping may not have been the best idea. It would most probably be better inside a fan hut if you want peace and quiet.

Among the resorts we thought of staying in, Pansacola has the longest and the most beautiful beach line - probably more than 10 kilometers of it. This is perfect for those who want to camp as the camp site is right along the beach. They have different options for rooms (if you're not renting the tents), aircon, fan room, tree house. They have public grilling areas and toilets for those with no en suite bathrooms. But the rates are quite pricey. As were the meals that you have to pay upfront. The resort could be cleaner and better maintained. They could also assign a smoking area. As there was none, smokers smoked anywhere they chose. What about us non-smokers who traveled hours just to inhale what we thought of as fresh sea breeze? I could have just stayed in Manila had I known I would be breathing in the same side stream smoke.

I'm giving this review with the caveat of not being a fan of “going back to nature” types of trip. PROS: 1. Accommodating staff. 2. Beach is great. no rocks just sea grasses. Fine, white sand. 3. Rooms are OK. What I like is our room is very near to the common toilet and bath and where you can cook. I also like the space where we can eat. The kubo jr can also accommodate max 4 people. 4. Plenty of options for travel private and public. You can also rent a habal habal from the Cagbalete port to the resort of your choice. 5. Our hotel was near the port. Only 10-15 mins walk but faster if you ride the habal. 6. It's a clean place. Staff regularly cleans the place (except the toilet and bath). CONS: 1. You have to rent/pay for everything 2. No electricity from 6am to 6pm. But you can stay near the beach where there’s cool breeze 3. Super low tide from morning until early afternoon - i like them deep enough

We went to Cagbalete Island on December. The hut we stayed at was just okay. It was really cold at night, and we only turned on the electric fan to ward off mosquitoes. The resort had a very laid back vibe. It's a budget-friendly resort, so don't expect too much in the way of comfort and of overall cleanliness. If you choose to stay in a relatively cheap resort, then you shouldn't really complain at all.
