The only good thing I can say about this resort is that we had a quick check-in.
The room was dirty with dusty furniture, wrinkled bed sheets, moldy bathroom.
The swimming pools ( one with fresh water, the other with salt water) did not look inviting as it smelled like it had too much chlorine and many of those who were swimming where in shirts and shorts. Boats for rent were parked at the beachfront with men offering boat rides. Stray dogs were roaming around the resort. Food at the restaurant was either bland or too salty. It's a good thing that the resort staff was eager to please and apologetic about the state of the resort.

On their website this resort looks great. Upon reaching it, the resort facility definitely meets expectations. Staff are warm and typical of resorts in the country. They will do their best to make your stay as pleasant as possible.
The pools are great and look very nice. Adults and kids will surely like them.
The catch is the beach itself. Needs some cleaning and sprucing up to match Subic or Batangas beaches. The water too, isn't clear, which probably leaves the impression that the beach is... dirty.

We stayed here one night last December. Our party was large over 20 people. Members of our party had found this on internet and saw the reviews on trip advisor as a relatively inexpensive resort with good value and decided to try it.

The resort is a number of small buildings about 2 stories with a couple of big pools and several large cabanas for eating. It was well kept and while not luxurious nor great design the place was obviously well cared for and managed.

We got several room types, private ones and a dorm room for 16 people. This was a disappointment. The rooms themselves were very perfunctory but the bathrooms were a much bigger disappointment. They did not look very clean and the water did not function well. The toilet on the dorm room did not flush properly so this was quite a problem for us. Despite several attempts by the staff to fix by the time we left the next day this was still not working properly. One did not want to stay in the bathroom at all and with the lack of shower curtain the whole place was a mess.

The beach itself is typical of Bataan which is usually a greyish fine sand. It is ok perhaps for foreigners though for Philippine standards not really a great beach.

The worse thing though was the Karaoke machine that they rented out to parties. This went on for several hours and despite the fact that we were told that it would end at 12, at 130am we were all woken up by inconsiderate guests who insisted on playing extrememly loud signalong! A member of our party went out 3 times to complain to the people managing the place but apparently this was considered normal. This happened again at around 6 am. Apparently the resort does not feel this is unacceptable.

Another problem with their design was evident in the morning when our next door neighbors woke up and began chatting. The paper thin walls or ceiling unfortunately reflected their conversations and we could hear every single word. Not only is it a privacy issue for them, we ourselves were disturbed trying to get more sleep after the karaoke affair.

Staff was gracious, they were attentive and wanted to please but unfortunately fell far short perhaps due to lack of training specially with what to do with conflicting guest desires such as the extremely loud karaoke.

To sum it up, I do not recommend this for travellers who are expecting any sort of luxury or above basic comfort. It is at best average in service and facilities, below in beach quality. This place is probably best for companies who are doing some sort of retreat or outing, and have budget limitations. We will probably not return here as we do not fit the type of client they can best serve.

Room Tip: Inspect your room before you accept, Make sure your rooms are as far away from the beach (ironically...

We have to go here to try the food choices as the resort we were staying at don't have much to offer, and we were not disappointed. The better thing is that we were treated like real customers compared to where we stayed at. Waiters are prompt, courteous and cheerful. Better ambiance as they have good lighting during the night. Lawns are perfect for walking barefoot.
They don't have high chairs for baby though. But other than this, our experience with this resort was excellent.
