Batangas | Happy Family Weekend @ Blue Coral Beach Resort

Blue Coral Beach Resort - Laiya, San Juan, Batangas
Blue Coral Beach Resort - Laiya, San Juan, Batangas

Last July, my family had this relaxing and fun overnight stay at Blue Coral Beach Resort. As mentioned in my previous post, my brother took a vacation from his work and invited us in his family's weekend getaway. It was just an overnight stay, yes. But it was such a happy and stress-free vacation, especially for me since I didn't spend a single cent on this short getaway...hehe. Thank you, brother! ^_^

Anyway, Blue Coral Beach Resort is one of the beach resorts located in the shoreline of Laiya in San Juan, Batangas. It offers rooms and suites (furnished with basic amenities) and other facilities (swimming pools (for kids, adults), water sports equipment, restaurant, videoke bar, etc.) for their guests to enjoy. It also has free WiFi, for those who need to go online during their stay.

The Poolside Family Room

Our room is an air-conditioned family room located in the resort's poolside area, with two double-size beds, a double deck and two extra mattresses (dorm-type). It also has basic amenities like private bathroom/CR (with hot and cold shower), TV and mini-bar ref as well as complimentary toiletries (soap, shampoo/conditioner, toothbrush). The room costs 8,700 PhP per night. We were quite comfortable with this room; it's spacious enough for us, nine adults and 2 kiddos.

The two kiddos at the swimming pool, they are my nephews. They really enjoyed the pool very much. It was their first time together, at a resort. At first, one of them was hesitant. He just stayed on the pool's steps. But later on, he conquered his fear and went swimming and playing, too. I had fun watching and taking photos of them. Hopefully, there would be more family getaways like this to come, in the future. :)

Buffet @ Blue Coral Beach Resort

Although the resort allows bringing of foods during lean season, we didn't bring our own. Instead, we availed of the buffet dinner offered by the resort. It's 475 PhP per person, half the price for kids. Following are the choices for the buffet that time:

buffet choices, CW: soup, steamed rice, shanghai rolls, steamed dory w/ black beans, beef brisket,
white chicken with cauliflower, mixed vegetables and fruit salad
my first plate...
my second plate...
last: fruit salad...

How was our dinner? Almost all of us didn't enjoy our buffet dinner that much. The soup was not steaming hot; shanghai rolls were chewy; steamed fish a bit salty (for my taste, I've low tolerance for salt, by the way); beef was not so tender. Only the mixed vegetables and the fruit salad were the ones I enjoyed. The foods are not  really bad. It's just that, for 475 pesos per person? Not worth the price, I would say. We should have chosen ala carte instead, since my family and friends are not big-eaters, anyway. And so the next morning, we decided to go ala carte. The problem? Most of our supposed choices were not available; we had to change orders and be contented with what was available. Tsk! That's why we opted to try Cafeno Coffee House for our next meal.

PS: I had stomach cramps that night (hyper-acidity attack) but I'm thankful because we don't have to look for a drugstore, the resort's staff gave me some free antacids (I forgot mine, which I usually bring with me wherever I'm going). To the resort's staff: thank you very much! We may not have a very satisfying dinner (or breakfast) but we definitely had a fun and relaxing stay. My family (and friends) enjoyed our short weekend-getaway there.

  12. Not a good resort, we stayed at the Main House and others at Penthouse, poor airconditioning, pool closes at 10PM, and beach 7PM so what's the sense of "OVERNIGHT"??? Food is also expensive, Php1450 for breakfast lunch and dinner, we had tuna at Lunch, and they repeat it again at lunch with the same taste, just added squid in it, even their dining area is too HOT!! SO BAD EXPERIENCE!!!
