The collection of houses is splendid, and the walking tour taught us quite a lot (our tour guide was quite funny so it made the tour, rainy though it was. all the more enjoyable).
Staff (in period costume) are friendly and helpful. The welcome drinks they provide are highly appreciated, considering that it's a bit of a drive to get there.
Our accommodations were lovely. And MASSIVE. They retain that historic charm (stone walls, wooden floors) while cleverly incorporating all the modern amenities (TV, airconditioning, spacious bathroom, toiletries and linen) one would expect from a quality hotel. Breakfast, served in one of the casas, is a treat.
Las Casas Filipinas is the kind of place you go to when you want to refine your appreciation of this country's culture and history.
PS: During our visit, they were still adding more structures and developing their grounds; all the improvements should make it an even better place to visit soon.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. To add up to the ambiance, a backdrop of majestic mountains, expansive rice fields, and a running river that flows to the sea, are found in the vast property. Truly a travel destination unlike any other, this resort in Bataan is a living museum of Philippine heritage. The traditional houses as hotel accommodations are the centerpiece of this Bataan beach resort about 125 km northwest of Manila. Even so, this destination resort does not lack in providing avenues for entertainment, relaxation, and recreation. It has the Napiya Spa, a swimming pool, private beach, gaming center, 3 restaurants, conference and banquet facilities, cultural shows, and heritage tours.
