A different kind of resort”

Extremely friendly and helpful staff; Easy access to owner for discussions; available entertainment

I would like to start off that the Isla Bonita should not be compared or rated as a regular hotel. The Isla Bonita is a very comfortable, relaxed family friendly atmosphere with a great staff which really cares. Many of these resorts will charge extra fees or give grief over people who bring in food from the outside but in this case the resort actually encourages it. You are also allowed to bring in your own drinks. The design of the place reminds me of Italy on the med. White walls, wood frames etc. The grounds are tiled in some places giving a slightly european feel. We reserved two family rooms and keeping in mind we were at a simple resort, the rooms were properly priced for what they offered. The rooms were spacious and clean. As far as I could tell the swimming pool was very clean. The beach was very clean with no trash or debris which is usually evident on many Philippine beaches. There is no surfing possible at this beach but at certain times of the day when the waves are stronger you can do some boogie boarding. I would suggest you get your room here and then go to the Kahuna which is just a five minute drive south on the road. The Kahuna is a much more expensive resort but it has surfable waves. The Kahuna had no issues with us crashing their beach and actually encouraged it. In addition to a restaurant, they have a small bar, pool table and darts. The beach itself was not crowded. My only real concern was the parking area. It is extremely tight to maneuver if you have SUV's or family vans. Many of these resort or guesthouse type establishments in the Philippines have videoke machines on the premises and you are forced to endure the sound of dying cats until the wee hours at these places. By 11pm or so the Videoke singing was over and as they were getting close to the later hours I even heard them turn the volume down a bit by bit for the consideration of the other patrons.

GOOD DECISION TO STAY AT ISLA BONITA”

We went to Isla Bonita last weekend (Oct 7-8), and I am so in love with the place. Rooms are big in a very low price. Staffs/manager are very accommodating. The facilities/area are clean. They have 2 pools, though it was small we still enjoyed the cleanliness and the landscape of the resort. The foods are good, worth the price. I also like the live band on a Saturday night and the beach is not crowded. 😊Thanks for the great experience Isla Bonita. Will surely come back to your place.

Great value for money - the view, the food, the staff, the rooms were all decent for the money spent”

The staff were all friendly and intuitive. They returned stuff we left after check out too! The room was spacious and well ventilated - much more than what it look like in the photos. They have enough towels, blankets, pillows, tissue rolls. Leaving a broomstick would top it all! There was hor and cold water although the pressure wasn’t that strong, The toilet was also manually operated and could use a bidet - but for us these were negligible The location was perfect - it was right in front of a well-maintained shore of San Juan beach There was enough kubo and tambayan infront of the beach - perfect for evening chillax and morning refreshments There was a pool, billiards table and a videoke although we didn’t really take advantage of these provisions. There was also a decent parking space although the drive from the main road to the hotel was along a narrow road, so big cars may have a bit of a challenge. Overall, we loved our stay and would definitely book again!

Great for Family ”

If you're visiting San Juan together with your family with kids this is a very good place to stay. Its 15 mins away from the crowd at Urbiztondo and Sebay by foot. So the place is quiet and with less people. The beach is also way cleaner. The resort is at the town proper so its very close to the market and you can buy almost everything there if you opt to cook your own food. The resort also provides good food, and accommodating and helpful staffs. They also have a volleyball net and billiard table which you can play anytime.

Superb!”

The pictures do no justice. Both the interior and exterior has an European vibe to it which I loved. This resort is perfect for a big group or maybe even couples because it's in a remote area of La Union. The bathroom could be better but it's worth for what we paid for. Would recommend this resort if you want to stay in La Union and away from the crowd 👍🏽

I celebrated my birthday in isla bonita. I enjoyed a lot and so much fun. We have Amazing Birthday Celebration. I ordered litson baboy for my birthday in resort but the litson is not well cooked. We have spacious room but the refrigerator inside the room is defective. I think the owner should replace the refrigerator and aircorn into a new one.

La Isla Bonita Weekend”

The resort is located in a relatively more quiet area than the other resorts -- which is fine since we usually opt for more peaceful/less crowded resorts. The resort also is conveniently located near the municipal hall, church, and market. The nearest ATM is also very near the resort (DBP ATM at the municipal hall). La Isla Bonita isn't also a far drive from the restaurants along the highway.

Nice Resort but needs a Little Updating”

Cool ambience overall, nice for taking photos. Their toilet though could use a little bit of updating, like install a bidet perhaps. The room that we stayed at had a separate living and dining room from the bedroom. I like the fact that they don't charge much inspite of the size of the room. The dining area though seemed like it hasn't been used and cleaned for ages. There were already spider webs in the fridge and on the wall. We literally didn't enter that room anymore since it's quite filthy. That's the only con that I can think of 'cause the rest of the facilities and amenities were pretty decent. The resort is beach front, so you can actually have your breakfast with the view of the beautiful beach which is probably what I liked most about this resort.

Everything nice except for the room”

Room for 2 is small and old with mosquitoes troubling us from getting a comfortable sleep. Pillows provided were a bit thin and not comfortable. Beachfront is nice and clean, and the waves there are relatively calmer than the other areas along the kilometers-long beach. Food is good and the staff are helpful and kind. The must-see places and bus stops in La Union are within an hour from the resort by tricycle. The staff had been helpful in securing the tricycle ride for us. Overall experience is nice though they need to improve on their rooms and manage those pesky mosquitoes.

Isla Bonita”

Staff accomodation, location, affordability

While I was looking at the pictures and hotel room descriptions, I was lead to believe that there are kitchens in the rooms and you can choose to cook meals and bring your own food with a kitchenette that have cooking utensils, etc. We got there only to find out that you have to rent the stove, and cook outside to share along with other guests that wishes to cook their food as well. I wish this was something that was specified in the Resort site, as this was quite disappointing. Otherwise, the rooms were clean, although lots of mosquitoes, staff was accomodating, although there was a time when they made a big fuss out of the extra towels and extra blankets that we asked for. Overall, our whole family stay was pleasant but will probably look for other locations as the beaches here are really not conducive for small kids due to higher waves only suitable for adult surfers.

Hmm, I think the resort need a major renovation to level up their game. Put the pools near the beach or create a infinity pool like view. And the rooms still made on woods. It looks better in concrete and tiles. But all are good esp the staffs. They are nice and accomodating. 👍🏻

Our trip to La Union”

Surf,beach, WiFi usually worked.

Well, if you go don't take a bus it is very long. Also, drive to the surf spots. The 20 min walk is more like a 45 min walk in some soft sand. You can rent boards by the day so get one and sometimes it breaks right in front of the Hotel. There are no Taxi's in town so if you do take the bus all your luggage needs to go on a tricycle. Long walk to the market but it is doable. Very important there is no money exchange place in San Jaun you have to go to San Fernando. Not too many places to eat in San Jaun you need to go to San Fernando. Again, I must say RENT a CAR don't take the bus it's not worth it.

Greate place and rooms. They need to upgrade their rooms by improving their aircon. Too small for the room. Some foods are great but they need to improve it as well. There should be a staff who could stay up until 2 or 3 am to accommodate questions or guest needs. But the over all stay was great. Staffs are amazing and the front office allowed us to transfer rooms since the a/c does not work that well.

Happy with the stay but could be better”

Isla Bonita's a decent place to stay in - good for big groups and hoomoms like me. However, the listings are not aligned with the actual room you'll get, so be careful when booking. If I were you, call the place first and confirm if the photo matches the actual room, or you'll end up paying more. Oh well. I'm still half hearted about going back.
