We celebrated our wedding anniversary last July 26 , 2013 here. We knew Bataan was far from Manila and getting there for the first time is a challenge. But once you reach the place, all the aches of the long travel will disappear.
We got accommodation at the 2nd floor of Plaza Escolta. I didnt expect much but we got a Queen Size Bed, flat tv screen with dvd player, a fully furnished bath (I just love big bathrooms), antique coffee table, a balcony of our own and a great view of the place.
Food was also great, though a bit salty to my taste. Beers can be bought from the restaurants and can be brought back to your room, but you can buy them at a cheaper price at the Panaderia. The panaderia ofcourse sells bread. Pandecoco is a must try.
Their souvenir goodies are too pricey from mugs to shirts to sandals, i think they should lower the price a bit for the local tourists. We encountered several photography groups and buses of medical practitioners...96% Filipinos.
The photo package costs P1,020 per person for 10 minutes photo shoot with costume, a book of your pictures and a usb. For couples, times two.
The tour was informative and you will really marvel at our heritage and culture. You also get so much ground to walk the day away...You get a small pool (4ft), which by the way needs a little attention and the great beach fronting the China Sea. We wanted to do some boating along the river but their boats were out of order.
Service was ok, the waiters/waitresses were very attentive and made good recommendations.
Our telephone line (room 209) didn't have dial tone even after informing them. The bathroom had no curtains and was open to the view outside where big trees abound.
There were still various houses/buildings and a church currently being constructed there. A lot more possibilities. Perhaps they could add some attraction for the kids because im pretty sure our kids would not have enjoyed if we took them along in this trip.
The stay was great. We enjoyed it.

- A fine showcase of Filipino history and craftsmanship, Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar in Bataan takes you back to 18th-century Philippines in the twinkling of an eye. Architectural pieces of a bygone era, from different parts of the country, were reconstructed brick by brick, plank by plank. The noble-class mansions, wooden stilt houses, and a grand main building made of stone stand proudly in a village of cobblestone streets.

Truly a travel destination unlike any other, this resort in Bataan is a living museum of Philippine heritage.
