Try Moonlight Beach Resort
Laiya Balacbacan, San Juan Batangas
Check-in: 2:00 PM / Check out: 1:00 PM
Why I recommend it?
It’s just a few hours away from Manila. It’s beach front. Compared to other resorts that we checked, it’s more affordable and pretty decent. They have a very accommodating staff. They don’t require huge amount of deposit.
This is the frontview of Moonlight Beach Resort. Super bright yellow, looks newly painted. We rented 3 rooms to accommodate 20-30 person.
Room 7, 8 and 9 (good for 30 pax)
each room has 1 queen size bed, 1 double bed (queen size)
All air conditioned with private CRs in each room (Note: No TV inside the rooms)
1 Nipa Hut (beach front) provided for the group
Ref, grilling area, gas stove and cooking utensils are provided
Resort fee (overnight stay, 3 rooms): P 11, 000
These are the other rooms available.
Parking area here. For our transportation, we rented out 2 vans from UV Express Service.
Van: 2 x 14-seater, 6K each (back and forth)
Text Aldwin 09473642978 for more details
Budget: P12, 000 (Gas and rental included)
Note: Toll fee not included, also we included Kuyas in our food budget since they’ll have to stay with us the whole time. For their accommodation, they slept in the van.
Several neighboring resorts here, we just didn’t have time to roam around.
Nipa huts beach front. Perfect for those visiting on day tour only.
Nipa hut outside perfect for kwentuhan. The sand is not powdery white, pero keri na.
this scene is familiar, looks like my barriosiete, except that we don’t need to pay to have funnnnn
lots of visitors pa din even when it’s past summer already
mountains as a backdrop, ganda-ganda!
For activities, Ruthie and I prepared a games (some are ripped of from our favorite Korean variety show called – Running Man)
– Bring Me Item + Queen’s Race (QUEEN’s feet shouldn’t reach the sand while bringing the items we asked them for so she has to be carried out all the time, promotes team work and helpfulness)
– Guess What? (guess what item is inside the box)
– Movie Charades
Infairness, the beds are quite big.
See!? Can accommodate up to 3 person each bed.
This is the kitchen area, no extra fee for the gasul. The last time we went to Puerto Galera, we were charged 50P each for the gasul, wow, kasing presyo ng bago eh we only used it twice.
For food budget, I think we allotted 5,000++. Here’s our Menu for the whole trip:
Lunch – take out from Andok’s + Dunkin donuts (KKB)
Merienda – lots and lots of chichaaaas
Dinner – ensaladang mangga (indian mangoes, bagoong, kamatis, sibuyas at itlog na maalat); sinigang na spare ribs; inihaw na isda; adobong manok and baboy
Brunch (Day 2) – pancakes; cheesedogs; bread; bacon; egg omelette with spam
Merienda – Jollibee somewhere
Japox setting up his film showing!! I think you can rent videosingko naman but we don’t want to shell out more cash for that so Japox brought his own home theater. Thank you japox for your resourcefulness! CDR-King always reliable! lols
Group shot – wet edition! There’s a huge area in front of the nipa huts, perfect for..picture taking hehe. Sino-sino ang naka-stomach innnnnn?? LOLSSSS
Ayan nakahinga na ng maluwag haha. One more group shot before going home!
All in all, it was all nice. Company paid so I can’t really complain. Hindi masyadong nakakapagod…hinde din nakaka relax. Definitely not the best experience but for a quick, not-so expensive team building, Moonlight Beach Resort is perfect for you and your team.
