Looking for a place where you can getaway just for a weekend? Probably one of the first places you will think of is Batangas. With just about 2 to 3 hours drive from the metro, Batangas is definitely a place we can get away to.
With so many resorts to choose from, we ended up booking the attic room in Vista Aplaya resort in Anilao, Batangas. It costs us Php5,000, very affordable for our group of 4 persons.
Vista Aplaya is a small resort. Works for me as I wanted to escape from crowded places that week. The resort have a pool and you can also access the beach. The beach however is rather stony. We checked out the beach but stayed and swim at the pool.
Booking Experience: We had a hard time booking. We are not able to get immediate response and we also experience being passed on from one contact to another. At some point, we wanted to just find another resort.
Resort Vibe and Review: The resort is located downhill. You have go down that steep one-lane road to get there. Thank goodness no other cars were there when we pass by.
When we reached the resort, we thought ‘oh wow, it looks cool’, good ambiance and cozy. We liked it.
Then we ordered food, damn it’s expensive. I forgot the exact prices and all I can remember is that its expensive enough for us to agree to just order one barbecue stick each and rice but due to our persistent asking we were able to come up with a better set meal – cheaper. The resort however, do not mind if you eat any food you brought with you.
Overall Feedback: Overall, I enjoyed our stay. The staffs of the resort were really accommodating that at the end of the day we forgot that bad booking experience. The resort is beautiful too. I hope they add more food on the menu tho.
