As of all of my travels at the moment, I think Bataan has been the most enjoyable but less promoted place to be in. The beach is Bataan is absolutely wonderful and the place isn’t crowded as Boracay nor as rocky as Bolinao had been.

Sunset Cove Beach Resort

A pet-friendly resort and very highly recommended except for the fact that its beaches are sometimes filled with jellyfish. Saw their beachfront while going island hopping in Bataan, beachfront is wide and place is secluded unlike in the other stretch where the resorts are just right next to each other.

This was where we were supposed to stay, unfortunately, they didn’t have any rooms available.
Customer service is also very unprofessional, had us calling different numbers that day. I am still very much curious about this place though.

Price is midrange from P2500 – P4500

Mam Cecile is also really nice, however, we didn’t really appreciate having to call different numbers just to know if there is an availability in her hotel.

 

Manager’s Place Resort

Price Range – Low starting from P1000 +

Inquired once, offered a P1800 room with 2 double beds for 6 pax.

We reached Manager’s Place before realizing we had gone past La Primera where we were supposed to stay.

 

Here are the Bataan resorts I can give my opinion about:

Finding a place to stay in Bataan isn’t really hard as there are resorts in Bataan that are just right next to each other. However, these resorts are clustered by groups in the beach and separated by private houses and resorts so you really have to find the right entrance or road just to get to the place. It may also be easier to go around the area if you really want to find cheap hotels to stay at.

Commute is really hard around the area, I rarely saw jeeps or tricycles unless you’re in Balanga. Buses only come and go at times but also very rare. Unfortunately, the best way to get around in Bataan is to have a private car or transportation to get around, otherwise, suffer the time constraints transportation may  put to your itinerary.
