Blue Coral Beach Resort

We took a quick overnight trip to the beach right before Halloween for some R&R. We stayed at Blue Coral Beach Resort in Laiya, San Juan Batangas.

This was our first time to stay here, although this resort would always come up when I'd do online searches for places in Laiya.

There's some expansion going on around the resort but it didn't really bother us since maybe our room was far from the construction.  I'm sure it'll be done by the summer season next year though.

Their package includes the usual 3 meals - breakfast, lunch, dinner. The food was just ok for me. It was tasty but I found the meats, like the chicken and pork, to be matigas. Also, there were so many flies everywhere it was so hard to eat since you had to continuously swat them away! They really need to do something about that.

the dining area was big and spacious

some of the food they served during our stay: shrimp with oysters, roast pork, chicken, buttered veggies

Anyway, here are more pics from the resort:

We got the Poolside Family room with capacity of 8 - 10 pax.

The room was very spacious, with a 3 bed set up of 2 double-sized beds and 1 double-decked bed (plus there was a pull-out under the double-decker, but we didn't use that anymore). I liked how all the beds were big enough, with thick mattresses too. The blankets were really thin though, so better turn down the temperature of the air-con at night if you don't want to freeze like I did hehe.

There was a colored TV (which had the basic channels like ABS-CBN and GMA, plus a few cable channels like HBO) and a refrigerator. No electric kettle for heating water though.

There's also free wi-fi in the resort and the signal is strong in the dining and pool areas. Sometimes, the signal reaches in the room but you have to stay near the door though. :)

The best part about the room was the double-decked bed since the kids loved playing on it! They kept going up the top part and saying it was their "castle" hehe. I loved how the bed was really sturdy, since the kids kept going up and down the stairs.

The bathroom was also nice with a big shower area. There's just a funky smell at first (according to my MIL, parang un amoy sa pangkulot daw ;p), but it went away after a while or maybe we just got used to it haha. We sprayed the bathroom with alcohol but better bring air freshener if you could.

My only issue with the room was that there were a LOT of mosquitoes. I think it's because of the entrance to the room which is a sliding door. So there's a tendency for it to be left open or even if you close it, there's still a gap in between. Also, the windows in the bathroom had no screen and they were left open when we first checked-in the room. Tip: bring lots of insect repellant!

I would definitely recommend the poolside room since it's literally right in front of the pools. This was our view when you step outside our room. It was so easy getting stuff for the kids like snacks and toys since you just have to walk a few steps. :)

The kids had so much fun in the kiddie pool since it was shallow enough for them to splash and swim in. Miley super enjoyed the slide too!

Our room was also near the beach and I'm so thankful we were blessed with lots of sun and clear skies during our stay. The beachfront was wide and clean, but we didn't swim that afternoon since the waves were kind of strong. We played in the sand for a bit, but then the kids wanted to swim in the pool again.

We did swim the next morning though, since the waters were a lot calmer. We practically had the whole beach to ourselves and we sort of wish we could have stayed another day.

We had a good time and for the price, I think Blue Coral is one of the better resorts we've stayed at in the Laiya area. Will definitely come back here again given the chance.
