Beach Placid Resort, Restaurant and Bar
Reviewed December 12, 2010

We spent 2 nights there and it was enough I do not deny what people wrote previously but you have to know that if you rent a Beach Front Triplex (I don't know about others) you will shower almost over the WC (see photo). Flush was not working and we needed to use a bucket as you can see on photo.
The beach is also quite dirty with garbage that the sea is bringing.
It could be a nice place if they put 2 square meters more for a descent shower.

The bathroom in question has been fixed. It is our goal to make the customer happy. If they are not satisfied with anything, all they need to do is let us know and we will either fix the problem or transfer them to a bigger and better room for the same price. We have other cottages that have larger restrooms and larger area in the room. The Triplex is designed for inexpensive, single or couple guests on a budget. We we will be renovating the Triplex this year to make the restrooms/showers larger.

It may be that the bigger rooms (cottages/duplex) are the source of the great Tripadviser reviews that brought us here, but the room we were stuck in...well, those are a different story, at about 10' square - including the bathroom. Perhaps it was to be expected that there was no hint of this when we called to ask about room availability - we were told only that a "deluxe," or some such nonspecific term, was available. Compared with elsewhere in the Philippines and on Bantayan these are not a good value - in fact, that's the case even in comparison with those other new (booked) rooms we can't get in to right here at Beach Placid.

So - look around before you commit, as I wish we'd done.

Unlike some other resorts, the rooms are plunked down apparently where there was space, and with nothing like a long-term plan in mind, no landscaping, more like a campground with cabins. I did like that there was nothing between our front door and the ocean, but as I said, there was barely any "room" there to begin with, and the carpet has probably never been dry, ever.

The thing is, unless you're more successful in ferreting out a detailed map of the Santa Fe area before you get to Bantayan than we were, you won't know where or how far the other options are. We just wanted to grab hold of whatever we'd reserved from afar, since we had bags with us and were anxious to get perched somewhere...it was tolerable for a night, but in our case, no more than that. There are other close-by options in the area - near competing "Yooneek," which in itself seems much more attractive now that we've seen it, and at lower prices (in my opinion not getting a fair shake in these reviews at all - do we really think that "Yooneek" must be entirely "unique" in order to meet our expectations as a nice place to stay? [--])

The beach itself: I can't judge fully since we didn't stay at Beach Placid long enough to get a representative sense, but I can say that the beach here looks nice from a distance...but walking on it I found it hard-packed; and right now it's got a lot of debris and the water looks a bit green, trashy and cloudy - not inviting. We're moving ASAP to another hotel.

We arrived mid January and expected to stay five nights - we stayed over five weeks, which probably says it all! Joan, the ebullant owner and her team were just marvellous, nothing was too much trouble and everything was fun.. the location, right on the white sand beach, was perfect. We ate most evenings in the little friendly village of Sante Fe which was either a twenty minute walk or a short ride in a bicycle taxi - it all seemed very safe. Week days were generally laidback and peaceful, weekends were party time.. everyone was friendly..

If you're looking for a place to stay in Bantayan Island, I would recommend Beach Placid. The place is located minutes away from Santa Fe Port. It has a very nice shoreline and the best beach in the Alice beach. Their rooms are very affordable and clean as well. Their staff are very warm and accommodating and even the owner of Ma'am Joan is very nice and kind as well . You will never feel away from home when you stay at this resort. We did'nt go wrong in choosing this place to stay in Bantayan. Great food, friendly staff, and superb customer service, The next time we visit Bantayan again, we will stay at this resort again. Thank you Ma'am Joan and all the staff of Beach Placid for making our stay a memorable one. Hope to see you again on our next visit.....

Beach Placid is a nice quite and peaceful piece of property. The staff are very friendly and accomodating. They made me feel at home. The price is just right. The food is excellent and we had an option to eat at the restaurant, cook for ourselves or have them cook for us. They have the nicest white sandy beach in Santa Fe
