Very pleasant stay for a long weekend”
We were looking for a nice place to stay not too far away from Manila, as we had some business there. I found White Castle over the internet, and was impressed with the really modest price point of the rooms. We asked the hotel to arrange the transfer from Manila to the hotel for 4000 Pesos, I am glad we did, as the hotel itself is hard to find, especially the last mile is really a challenge. We stayed for 4 nights in August, the rainy season, and when we arrived we were the only guests. The staff showed us multiple rooms and we were free to chose. The rooms were huge, all in the style of a medieval castle. Even though our room was a bit older and had some signs of aging, everything was in working order, the bed was so cozy and comfortable, and it really felt like we were royals in a castle. On the first look we found the menu a bit expensive, but one menu easily feeds 3 persons, and the quality of the food was really superior. I asked for some fresh fish, preferably grilled, and the chef organized a huge Lapu Lapu, and barbecued it outside using char coal. We barely managed to eat half of the fish, even though it was the best barbecue fish I ever ate. The pool was a pleasant experience, but the beach was a bit of a disappointment. Due to the rainy seasons the water was not really clear, and there was a lot of trash and debris on the beach, the water is not very deep, so swimming during low tide is not pleasant. The sand is rather dark. But for our little girl it was good, as she cannot swim, and the water was calm and warm. Also she enjoyed the birds, dogs, and monkeys in the hotel, which is important, because there is only a fishermen's village in the neighborhood. Noting much to do. And a ride with the tricycle to the next big town is 350 Pesos (two way and including the driver to wait for you while you do your shopping or whatever). Overall a very pleasant experience, kudos to all the staff, who is very approachable and helpful.
Our perfect family getaway”
At first me and my family booked a 1 night stay with 3 rooms for 8 people and ended up extending our stay. We were looking for somewhere that was quiet and a nice place to spend my daughters 5th birthday. We thought White Castle was ideal. It took us a few hours to get there from Manila and we were tired upon arrival and when we arrived the staff were very welcoming and they had even bought my daughter a birthday cake. The staff were very accommodating to all of our requests and the Hotels General Manager Wolfgang was extremely helpful and polite. The hotel is located in a quiet fishing village and the area is just perfect for families or anyone for that matter. For value for money and the service you get at White Castle I would highly recommend it to anyone. I personally will be staying again. Regards, James and Rose
Families with young kids looking for a privacy”
My wife's 5 months pregnant and we traveled with our 4 and 5 year old daughters so I was a bit worried about the commute. It was a 7 hour ride from where I'm from but we had no problems finding the place. Just look for the sign along the highway that says "white castle" across balibago brgy hall (I used Google Street view to find the sign) then take a tricycle going to the hotel. The hotel looks like a castle and the kids absolutely loved it. The room we got was spacious and everything was working fine. It was better than expected. You could look down on the pool and the garden from the balcony. One thing missing was a phone but you can still reach the desk thru mobile which was actually more convenient for when you're in the beach etc. First person we met there was friendly and helpful and even drove us to places around the hotel during our stay. The rest of the staff was accommodating, they let us dine where we wanted. You could also have breakfast by the beach if you wish. Try the cordon bleau with fries and their bulalo. You won't be disappointed. We initially planned to stay for just one night but decided to book another night. They had a nice pool which had shaded areas for when it gets too hot to stay in the beach. As for the beach, you'll have to walk really far into the ocean before you reach the deeper parts. A boy in the beach told us that the tide was low that time. None of us knew how to swim so it was okay. The kids could play in the sand and the water with no worries, they were perfectly happy with it. My wife and I however wish that we had invited more people to come with us because we got bored the next day. So we went to a different beach nearby to look around but made sure to get back in time for the sunset. If you like wild parties and crowded beaches, this is not the place for you. If you're looking for a quiet place to stay however, this place is perfect.
Very accomodating hotel”
Staffs were very nice and approachable. The owner's dog, Johnny, is very friendly and allows guest to pet him. He's like the little guard of the resort. The pool was very nice with the garden view and castle-like structure. The beach was so-so. Don't expect too much like white sand and blue waters as this area hasn't still been developed properly. There were many liters in the seaside as travellers and campers throw their stuff and eaten food. We didn't know if this has something to do with too much salinity of the sea water. Overall, we've enjoyed the stay in the hotel as the facilities are very good other than the beach itself. Hope we could go back again and this time, hoping the beach would be more cleaner.
Peaceful and friendly”
My family and I enjoyed 5 nights at White Castle. Their staff promptly picked us up from the Manila airport and we were able to relax by the pool while they prepared our rooms( we arrived early morning on a busy weekend). The sunsets were lovely and the sky was bursting with stars at night. The beach is not pristine but it is enjoyable and safe. You will see very few foreigners since the hotel is located in a remote fishing village area. But you will find wonderful warm people and can observe their daily lives. The local staff was kind and friendly and we felt like family there.
Great Vacation! Great staff and place and owner!”
Its a great place to have vacation. We spent 4days on this place and its a great experienced here. The place is quiet and peaceful. Perfect for family getaway. Tho we didnt do some beach activities and boat rides, its still relaxing in the room and even at the main area. The staff are very friendly and approachable and they attend easily and fast on every request we had. Even the owner is very nice and friendly and accommodating. The foods are very worth it and big serving. Its worth the price. Its very delicious especially the food we had on Christmas Eve Dinner theres very big serving and value for money. Its very delicious and made by the owner / chef. Its really a hotel like experience with the beach. The rooms are fully airconditioned and showers have hot and cold. Tho theres some electricity fluctuations, we didnt experienced any disruptions due to they fix it easily and have generators. Swimming pool is clean and clear and very relaxing. Great place to picture coz the beach view and the castle like building. Its just the road going there is kinda muddy but we still enjoyed our whole stay. Great place and great experience. Good job to the whole team! We will definitely book again in this place.
Lovely place with a lovely owner and staff!”
We had a great time at White Castle and we would recommend it to anyone who's looking for some rest. The area is very quiet, right at a black beach with lovely children and dogs playing around. + The owner was super friendly and helpful! + Lovely facilities and beautiful area - Not much to do around - Quite far from Batangas (+/- 2 hours)
The hotel is designed like a small Spanish Moorish castle with a cute courtyard and pool as the centerpiece. We enjoyed the ambience of the courtyard. The room was fine, considering this resort is a budget hotel. The food and the service of the staff were quite good. The only drawback is the cleanliness of the beach; the resort staff and, in my opinion, the rest of the population of the nearby villages and resorts need to work harder to keep the beach clean and tidy. Besides the issue with the beach and the bad roads leading to the resort from the highway, we had a very pleasant stay at this resort. A big plus is the excellent golf course 3 kilometers away.
awesome and unforgettable stay in your place....”
it was a great stay and we had a wonderful experience in white castle ,one of the unforgettable places and experiences we had.. it was a two thumps up for the management and staff.. keep it up!!!!
Still one of the BEST!”
The hotel itself was unique due to it's castle like design. Good sides are; staffs are very polite and they will serve you like a king and Queen which is the best part. Foods are great. Scenery are perfect since it beachfront. Some downsides are it's hard to reach and the sea is quite dirty... but everything's is Great. Thanks to the staff! :D
This hotel is a hidden gem with lots of potential”
We didn't really expect much from this hotel, as the road going there was pretty tough, confusing, and honestly we didn't find the drive going there pleasant. When we arrived at the hotel, we were met by a very nice lady who welcomed us and introduced us to the manager who was equally pleasant. When we checked in our rooms, we knew what to expect, but we found that it was pleasant nonetheless. This hotel isn't a luxury hotel--that's for sure--but it has its own charm and it's hard to not like because of the good food and the service it provides. The beach isn't that exciting too, but it adds to the peace and quiet that makes you feel you really are away from the usual city life. The sunset, sunrise, and night sky are nice views. Overall, this hotel is good for budget weekend getaways. Only point of improvement, like most reviews here, would be to improve the road going here. It's good that this is pretty hidden from everything, but of course it's better if the roads leading here will improve.
First Time First Impression”
The first thing that caught our attention was the rough road from the main highway until the beachfront. Only parts of it were paved, the rest made me wary of suffering a flat tire in the most inconvenient of places. Upon check-in, when we were shown our room, we realized the room didn't have a lock. The "door" to our room was a glass and metal grill sliding door with a broken lock. For the first few minutes we were figuring out what we could do to secure our valuables. Only when we went to the reception did a staff realize we weren't given a padlock. Added to that, the glass door didn't come together so well there was a noticeable gap. If you insert the key in the padlock, it also seemed loose you'd wonder if somebody could actually destroy the padlock. The hotel looked rather old and in need of refreshing compared to the photos in the website. Though not directly the fault of the hotel, the beach needed some cleaning. There were rather big pieces of trash in the shallow portion most looked like food packaging.
Great vacation! You'll enjoy it here in White Castle!
Very relaxing, secluded, good food”
Very relaxing stay. totally out of city distractions. It felt like real castle with beautiful gardens & swimming pool. Excellent food served. like to return.
Was one of the best couple of days i”
I had read a review that nearly put me of going but I decided to go anyway and see for myself glad I did my only regret was not booking longer. Was meet by Wolfgang great guy and his staff are excellent. Nothing was to much trouble for him or his staff. Found my room very comfortable it's certainly a place I will visit again and next time I will stay longer. Thank you Wolfgang and your staff for a very enjoyable stay.
ģood nice experience”
the place is quiet and relaxing. I like the beach but it would be much nicer if the floating boat is maintained its cleanliness... it is full of dirt. I hope you provide a drinking water for free and coffee or tea esp in deluxe room. you also need to provide thicker blankets esp when there are children. we are satisfied although the foods are a bit pricey. I think you need to lower the price to make it more affordble to travellers since the hotel is not a 5star. when we stayed in Seda same price with I got in your hotel but they provided a buffet unlimited breakfast.
Very nice place lovely quite location , pool was perfect staff really good . Very reasonable price we felt . Food was very very good although we did go to the cheaper local stalls mostly. But when we did eat at hotel it was excellent quality and taste . Wi fi was about average for philippines , ok the beach area is not the greatest but it is still ok and lovely to watch the sun go down on( usually with a bunch of local children who were very funny and polite ) if we are in the area again would stay there again for sure
It was ok”
room was clean. staff were accomodating and friendly. the food have fair price. however, on the way to the hotel was a very narrow road. only 1 car would fit. also, the area was remote. during our stay in the resort, the place was ok except that there was no privacy at all. a lot of bystanders passing by and even roaming around. some of the hotel staffs were also roaming around the area.
Memorable Vacation for my Family”
Staffs are very accomodating and kind. Foods are great and delicious. And Resorts are clean. Just add additional recreation.But over all stay are really great my kids really enjoy
I like the ambience of the place which is enhanced by the friendly staff. There are numerous oil paintings lining the walls and inside the rooms which is very nice. Don't expect a luxury hotel. It is more of a homey and charming place where one can find many nooks and crannies to read a book and just relax and enjoy the quiet.The public beach outside is generally clean although the hotel and surrounding community should make an effort to maintain the area and gather the trash washed up by the tides or left behind by beach goers. The pool is small yet clean and we had a lot of fun in it. By the way, the food is great. This is a good thing because the area is far from the highway so it is difficult if you want to eat out. Overall, I loved my stay and would recommend it to others.
