I saw staff throwing food wastes and i even pieces of plastic directly at the ocean. I spoke to the staff and it turns out that they do this regularly. Disappointing and disgusting. I will report this to the proper authorities
I love the reef pool. It is the best thing a resort could offer, IMO, especially when the weather will not allow you to swim in the open waters. I wish all other resorts had a reef pool too. I felt safe swimming while the waves crashed outside of the pool. The sharks would sometimes give me a fright when they would suddenly appear in front of me, but that was cool. I would spend my weekends there if the place wasn't so far.
Here I experienced the most amazing sunset I have ever seen. Generally the resort is targeting diving people (which I am not) but has some nice features (swimming pool, good rooms, private beach...by boat). Some parts need to be renovated (games area), some things were not working (no buffet breakfast, perhaps it was a low season) but generally a good few days to relax. What is hard is to travel from Manila.... very long time.
I stayed here for 2 nights & 3 days! The service was superb. The hotel rooms were breathtaking and amazingly arranged to suit the native elegance of the Philippines without giving up comfort and luxurious vibe. The resort has a Water reef pool where in house guests can experience once in a lifetime swimming with baby sharks and practice snorkeling & diving. Another pool is separately designed for swimming alone. Food is great! Guests also has access to the private beach, Sepoc Island which can only be reached through arrangements with this resort. I must say that this resort is one of the best places in the country! Truly a must visit!
Good Food... Relaxing view.... Friendly staff.... Clean room.... First time to try SCUBA, it's really great but for the first timer like me, this experience is awesome. Really have to try this again..😍😊😁
Just a short drive from Manila but once you get to mabini it's a bit hard to find the resort. Road signages could be improved. The entrance from the main road was sketchy and the narrow path going down the resort was just enough to fit one car. You have to drive slowly and honk you horn to let the oncoming cars let them know you are coming. First time drivers beware and make sure to check your brakes because the road going down the resort requires low gear and brakes since it's extremely steep! Once you get to their parking lot, the resort van will take you down another steep road to the entrance of the resort. Not sure why they had buffet style serving plates & soup holders. Was it for show or for big groups? Pros: -relaxing view -heated (I think) swimming pool -salt water pool with baby sharks encounter -cottages have a view of the sea -rooms were ok hot/cold shower Cons: -food (menu was limited & expensive) +10% service charge -kitchen is open until 9pm or 10pm so better eat up or buy sandwiches for a possible midnight snack -don't order the pizza (it was undercooked) -no place to buy chips or snacks
The location of Eagle Point Resort is lovely, great views and sunsets over the lovely clear water. Food was average - same as everywhere in the Philippines really ... Rooms could be cleaner and offer room service. Pool also looked a bit grimy but this matters little as who swims in the pool with that ocean nearby?? Service was fine, but don't charge for wifi!! Whatever you do, don't come here if you have a disability, it is very hard to get around.
Sorry for late review on this as I only have the time now to update my trip advisor account. Me and my husband (my bf last2015) visited this paradise down the south of Batangas. We left 6am and arrived at 9am. On their parking area, you will ride on their 4-wheel drive to go to the lobby of the resort. They have a restaurant with a great view, aviary and pool with harmless sharks :-) One of the best sunsets we've seen.
If your objective is to enjoy the view of the sea and the sea itself with its blue-green waters, coral reefs and sea creatures, and enjoy snorkeling or diving, then this place serves the purpose well. Bear in mind that Anilao is more of a diving spot, so if you're looking for other fun activities, and a nice cozy beach with soft sand this isn't the place for you. Timing is also a factor since the resort could get crowded in summer and most weekends. We had a pretty good experience at this resort. We're a family with 2 young energetic kids (3 & 4 years of age) who enjoyed the pool and the view. The beach is more rocky than sandy and we weren't able to bring the appropriate swim shoes for the kids so they weren't able to wade in the seawater, but the pool and the "mini aviary" were enough to entertain them. My husband loved the resort's manmade diving pool, where one can swim with the baby sharks, and of course this is Anilao, so he was awed by the diversity of marine life in the sea. Although the food is pricey for the average selection and their taste, the dining area has a beautiful view of the sea, which can whet one's appetite so no complaints about the meals from my hubby and toddlers. We stayed at the standard terrace room with sea view - the room is average but served its purpose. It has clean sheets and the bathroom is clean, shower is working, and there's TV. WiFI signal is good too. My husband and I availed ourselves of the massage service and it was good - perfect after a long day at Sepoc beach and the resort. The service crew were friendly and nice. For maximum enjoyment bring your snorkeling/diving gears (you can also rent at the resort) and your underwater cams/Go Pros. Some spots are good for underwater macro photography. The ride from the parking lot to the resort (and vice versa) was also something we enjoyed as the view was great. The only downside was the reservation (at least in our experience). I'd been trying to book a room in March and I always got the answer from the Manila reservations office that the resort was fully booked. I tried checking every month and got the same answer, although I tried calling the resort itself in Batangas and they had been telling me there were plenty of rooms available. I was already about to give it up, when after a few more frustrating calls I was booked for a December stay (yes, that long). Not sure if our booking experience was just an isolated case, but sharing anyway so you can take the necessary steps to ensure smooth reservation if you decide to stay in the resort.
Great place to stay. Food is expensive but good. Environment is relaxing and peaceful. Maximize island hopping, try to be early to avoid the crowd. Ideal for family vacations, barkada trips, and even broken hearted getaways. 😊
