Summer Haven at Blue Coral Beach Resort

With the summer heat continuing to sprawl all over the metro, we found Blue Coral beach resort to give us a refreshing atmosphere. Situated three to four hours away from Manila, we packed our things and headed our way to Laiya, Batangas.

There were already a lot of guests when we arrived as there were also a number of companies having their summer outing and team building at Blue Coral. The entire resort is small and you can roam around it for five to ten minutes. Given only a sweet and swift a-day-and-a-half deadline to enjoy Blue Coral’s summer haven, we took our privilege to plunge into their inviting beach and pool.

It’s a Shore Thing

Beach

Blue Coral offers clean and clear beach water with white sand. Just be careful with some jellyfish, there was quite a number of them. The water also gets suddenly deep, you can notice the swimming border just a few feet away from the shore. Several nipa huts and lounge chairs are situated just near the shore where you can opt to relax with a serene view of the sea.

Swimming Pool

Many resorts in Batangas do not have pools, giving Blue Coral an edge as they treat guests with one adult and one kiddie pool to swim into. You will notice that the pool water is warm and clean. Since the place is small, pools are easily accessible to all rooms. Nearby shower areas and pool lounge chairs are also provided.

Hit the Hay

Our group stayed in suite and poolside rooms. For the suite, there are three beds (2 queen size and 1 double size) and a living room area with T.V. (channels are disrupted) and mini refrigerator. Three extra mattresses are also given. The room is very spacious for 12 people. Poolside room also had three beds (2 double size beds and 1 double deck bed) with T.V. and mini refrigerator. Two extra mattresses are also supplied. You can get an extra mattress for PHP150. Both rooms are air-conditioned.

Bathroom is also big (with a huge bathtub that was not really inviting to use) but looked old and had a weird smell (according to the staff, it was not included in the renovation they had). What I liked with this room is its wide veranda facing the beach where you can unwind while catching a glimpse of the sea or the sunrise.

On the Plate

For an overnight stay, there is a mandatory meal package including dinner, breakfast and lunch which amounted to an additional PHP1,250 per person. All are buffet meals.

Blue Coral serves Filipino dishes with a combination of meat and vegetable choices, rice and dessert. Coffee and juice are overflowing. Overall, food is average. Among the three meals, I enjoyed lunch the most.

A good number of staff is serving the buffet table. You have to present the stub they gave each time you’ll eat. They also had scheduled time for the meals which usually lasts for two hours (Breakfast: 7AM–9AM, Lunch: 11AM–1PM, Dinner: 6:30PM–8:30PM).

Other Amenities

Function Room

Use of function room for the first two hours is free. Beyond this time, a fee of PHP 1,000 per hour will be charged. We stayed in the function room and had group games since we arrived a little early before the check in time. The room has tables and chairs that can accommodate 30-50 people.

Located at the 4th floor, you only have the stairs to get to it. It is an open area and you can find a spot where you can take a view of the whole resort. Since it is not well ventilated, the atmosphere is hot despite it being an open place.

Activities

Aside from swimming, you can choose to have fun with the following activities:

  • Kayak (PHP 300/2 hours)
  • Jetski
  • Banana boat
  • Volleyball
  • Frisbee (Bring your own disc)

Traveler’s Tips

  • Keep your food stub. You have to present it each time you will eat.
  • Some companies spending their summer in the resort use the beach area to facilitate their team building activities making it somewhat crowded with the nipa huts fully occupied. They also allowed guests to make very loud music which can probably ruin your mood if you went there to have a quiet time.
  • You may sometimes be interrupted by locals walking around and selling souvenir items.
  • Room rates are lower during lean season (July – September). Prices are also much cheaper during weekdays.

      Hi Arlene,

      I’m not connected to Blue Coral. You can probably inquire through the contact details I listed above. You can also check their online reservation through their site. 🙂 Hope this helps 🙂

    Blue Coral Beach Resorts looks like very friendly and accommodating resorts who understand the needs of Filipino culture who like to go by the group of people and by the whole family member. I really appreciate the idea of sharing the room and bond with the family and friends during the vacation. Very relaxing place.

    Everything looks acceptable until the deal breaker. Noise. Whenever I am travelling and staying in beach resorts, the one thing I absolutely hate is the noise, especially music blasting my ear drums. I prefer staying in a quiet resort where I can relax to the max.

    Having said that, I suppose it is easy to ask prior to booking if there are any other team activities scheduled.

    This looks like a nice resort, and at least it’s not too far and no need to take a plane ride. It can be counted as a place for a quick get away. Nice also that its small and there’s no need for a car or trike to get around. Good to know also that his beach is clean and well maintained, unlike some where there is a lot of trash. I also enjoy swimming in the pool with the ambiance of the beach, so this resort could work for me. The accommodations seem comfortable as well and spacious. Too bad lang that food is average since that is quite important to me

    This looks like a good option to chill with friends–plus it’s not to far from the metro. Blue Coral looks pretty affordable too with lots of amenities the whole group will enjoy.

    It looks lovely, but I have to say, I would not be impressed if it was over run by companies having team building exercises! It I was to go to a resort like this I would want to relax. The food looks incredible though!

    Hey there,

    I’ve been to a couple beaches and resorts in Batangas but basing from the looks, I think this one is surreal and extremely beautiful. I would love to explore this place myself and have my family with me. I just love how the Philippines has an endless stream of hidden natural beauties.

    Thank you for sharing this. I will definitely take note of this place and visit next time I’m in the Philippines.

    Happy Easter to you!

    While common areas like the pool and the restaurant look decent, the rooms look quite basic. This is a good choice for team outings and group holidays.

    The rooms are a bit pricey. I think the beaches on that side of Batangas have their share of Jelly fishe and sea urchins, I should know, I was stung by a sea urchin last maundy thursday, haha!

    The place looks nice though, the pool is a good alternative to avoid jelly fish and sea urchins
