Matabungkay Beach Resort was built in the end of the 70's as a private resort, it has since transformed into a public resort and is showing signs of age, however this is both good and bad. The grounds have wonderful mature trees and the architecture is a classis of its period with many Hawaiian influences.
The rooms are extremely large with private lanais but the furniture looks a little lost in the size of the rooms. The room we were in had some maintainance issues with tiles lifting on the floor and elderly fittings in the cr but everything was clean and worked, including the full cable tv.
For us the best point was the excellent grounds with many mature trees at the 'whiter' end of Matabungkay beach with an extensive beachfront which connected to the main beach.
It has the advantage of enjoying the privacy or walking to the main beach.
The sea is extremely clean but has seagrass beds which we enjoyed exploring and is very shallow but if you wish to swim there are two clean pools, the small one with a slide.
Staff are very helpful and courteous.
Food is a bit basic for such a resort but is reasonably priced and there are easy to reach outside alternatives.
This is not a 5 star Manila hotel but is extremely relaxing, has excellent location and grounds and is very good value for money.
