Blue Coral Resort
A private car—this is the best advice I will give to those who want to discover the beauty of Blue Coral Resort. Any Laiya traveler needs a personal ride for these reasons: this town is around 140 km away from Manila; the resort is located in a secluded area of the town where public transportation is hard to find and quite pricey; and, the resort offers expensive rates for food such as approximately US$10 for dinner buffet, US$5 or more for breakfast buffet, and US$3 for snacks.
My friend from New Zealand wanted to go to this place that was why we were there. Without enough knowledge of the resort, we ventured to take a bus from Manila with only a blurry map as our guide. Luckily, we found some hospitable locals who helped us reach our destination safely. But it took us about five hours to get there. Plus, the travel itself was tiring, sticky, and a literal pain on the butt.
Phew! I’ve said so much in this tip, but I haven’t said about the resort itself yet. Anyway, Blue Coral Resort is one of the best beaches in Batangas. It’s not the number one beach resort since the long stretch of Laiya offers the same quality of sea and sand. The only difference we can tackle is the service that each resort gives. So far, Blue Coral has good rooms—air-conditioned, clean, and technologically-equipped. But like what others say, staff service lacks enthusiasm and commitment to customers. [more]
