Mr & Mrs Wanderlust's Review
Cala Laiya, San Juan, Batangas
+ cottages made from stacked converted container homes which we found appealing yet cozy
+ Staff were all helpful
+ Clean, Spacious and nice room, comfortable bed with huge window and beds on 2nd floor
+ Bathroom was also spacious and has everything we need
+ Bathroom was clean and no leaks from shower
+ Food was alright but nothing spectacular
+ WiFi was working good, but a bit intermittent
+ Nice 2 pools with the view of beach and also kid friendly
- Beach was in a corner and does not look so clean, and we also old sewer pipe exit (though in fairness to them looks unused) directly to the beach which was a huge off. Nature doing its own healing process but not much fun and appealing to swim around the beach on its property.
- the bed on master bedroom was a bit small as me, my wife and our baby wouldnt fit and Mr. has to sleep on the couch in the middle of the night to have some comfort.
Price: $$$ 10k++ / night for a room good for 3 adults and 2 kids
Service: 5 Star - Service & staff were all very helpful
Facilities & Amenities: 3 star - Nice touch on cottage and pools but beach a bit not so.
Restaurant (foods): 4 star -food was alright but nothing special
Bar: 4 star -you can order on the restaurant alcoholic drinks/beer
Overall: 4 /5 Nice resort with beautiful container cottages that is cozy for the whole family, and also small yet nice 2 pools with view of beach. But the beach on the property not so much, read above why.
What To Do:
Play on the beach
Its always fun to play on the beach with kids. We don't think we need to say much.
Lounge Around with the view of the Beach
Read a book, meditate, sleep, or cuddle with your kids. With a nice view of the beach and hearing the calm waves makes it very relaxing.
Sunsets are already beautiful, but so much better seeing it with your loved ones.
Swimming Pool Time
Of course the kids are not gonna miss to dip in the pool, and it was also nice to swim at night
