Our family had a wonderful 2 night stay! We chose this place because it is very dog friendly. Cookie had her own gourmet menu and access to free life jacket. The beach area was very clean. They have nice cabanas for lounging. Customer service is exceptional . Staff are courteous and obliging to our requests. At the beach. We enjoyed the tree hung swings and the porch side chairs and tables for evening chit chat. The gardens are very pretty The only downsides are the vendors that too frequently approach you at the beach and sunsets occur on the far right horizon.

Worth the drive. Felt very welcome & taken cared of by the staff. Check in, smooth - we arrived an hour earlier but you can already use the facilities. Jane at the front desk & Edvan? very friendly & helpful. youll also need to pay a 'tourist' fee of P20 before you reach the resort. Keep the tickets.
Room: Spacious, comfortable beds & amazing pillows! Our room was the best -beach front. Not all rooms are beachfront but its also not that far from the beach. Theres a mini fridge, well stocked mini bar, beach towels & regular towels for bathing. Lotion, shampoo, conditioner, hairdryer, toothpaste, toothbrush & soap (this soap didnt lather too well) provided. Theres a closet with hangers & a safety deposit box.
Food: Our package included breakfast, lunch & dinner. Mostly Filipino food. Suggeted for them to have more choices other than Filipino food (more bread - croissants, french toast, english breakfast, etc..) but the service is great!
Beach: they have lounge chairs & cushioned cottages? no extra fee. 1st come, 1rst serve tho. White sand but not powdery. Can walk barefoot but I recommend to use aqua shoes. Water tho is very clear!
Pets: They understand if our pets arent that sociable. Must always be on leash however they were ok if not as long as theyre under control. This gave us the freedom to have our pets run in the beach. Provided a pet kit upon check in which has a pouch of food, poop bags, treats & other freebies. Poop bag dispensers around so no need to bring one.

What makes a trip worthwhile is the food, though they don't have buffet meals due to the pandemic the breakfast inclusion is awesome. You can have it served anytime from 7am to 9am, either at the restaurant or at the veranda of your room. Ours was served at the veranda, with a nice view of the beach and the premises.

Room 4/5
- TV and Wifi not working when we got there but they ensure that it's fixed within the day
Food 5/5
Staff 5/5
Parking 3/5
- need to lookout for anything that can puncture your tires. also, the staff who assisted us in the parking guided us to a space where there's a low hanging wire that it hit our trunk when we opened it.

Despite arriving with the best of emotions, we left very unsatisfied.

The resort is an old and unwell kept infrastructure which has not seen much maintenance since the last years probably.

Rooms are as small as they can be, while the bed and pillows are comfortable, pretty much everything else is falling apart or broken.

The food is average in quality, small in serving and highly priced compared to similar establishments. Dishes are limited and only available from 8am to 8pm.

Beach is quite wide, offers some free cabanas where you can relax with your dog. The sand is made of thick grainy rocks, full of pebbles making it quite unpleasant to walk on, even when going into the water. What was most concerning was that they had pieces of glass just laying there, signifying no one from the property bothers cleaning it. This was also evident since there was a plastic bottle just laying there for days till we decided to pick it up.

The only positive thing that stood out in our stay was the welcoming efforts of the staff which at all times was friendly and accommodating.

Our review would’ve been less critical if this resort had a price more in line with its offering. Instead you are charged an incredible amount of 7500php for a non beachside room, plus 800php for every pet you bring, making a total of 8300php per day for a couple + pet

The only reason why customers still go here is most likely because it is one of the few resorts that allow pets, but for this price it is definitely NOT worth it.

Not going back again.

We only went for a day tour so I can only remark on the restaurant, the cabanas, the changing rooms and the beach area of this hotel. The journey to Laiya from Manila is very straightforward, just don't forget to drop by the San Juan Tourism Office to pay for the environmental fee etc. It took us roughly 4 hours to get there via private vehicle and the guidance of Waze. The beach long enough and is very clean with clear blue waters, but gets deep quickly within 10-15 feet when u step into the water. You may want to watch your children closely when having a swim. All in all the resort is very classy and modern, very well maintained and clean. The restaurant is beautifully designed, serves good food but the waiter service is a little slow. The reception staff are very courteous and helpful. Half of the fee we paid per head is consumable for food and drinks. Would definitely recommend this place for a day trip.

Set away from the busy capital of the provice the resort is nearly at the very end. But once you get there you wont regret it. The price was reasonable. Our room had 2 big beds and a beautiful view just outside the balcony. I requested for a simple banner since we were celebrating my brother's birthday, which they kindly provided. Amd they even sang to him during dinner plus gave a complimentary cake.

The staff were all very friendly and i love how they were all smiling. Jane who assisted us had one of the brightest smiles.

The place felt safe and had really good security. Theres plenty of parking spaces too. Food was delicious! They have free activities like kayaking and paddle board in the morning. You can also ask the Life guard if you can borrow a volleyball. The cabanas are chill and It just very relaxing.

So much so that we even extended our stay for another night. Hope to unwind there are soon.

Had a lovely stay in this resort with our two huskies ❤️ Check in process was fast, the room is lovely. We had a minor issue with one of the lights but it was fixed immediately. They took care of our allergens as well so we felt safe in eating in the beach. Additionally, the food is amazing and delicious! Beach was clean and serene and our dogs were happy to lie on the shore since it was peaceful and breezy. Staff was kind and accommodating to us and our furbabies.

This is my second visit to Acuaverde and the friendliness and efficiency of your staff remains the same. They have always been hospitable and accommodating. I note however that some of the accommodations/rooms have detriorated and the number of peddlers on the beach have become annoying/worrisome. The previous privacy and security has sadly been diminished because of the peddlers prowling the beachfront. The food service remains satisfying - kudos to the kitchen staff and the very efficient staff providing drinks and other assistance.

11/10 would recommend this place for small families. The food buffet was great, the staff are all so friendly and courteous, their beachfront is well-maintained, and the cabanas are perfect for an afternoon all-day at the beach kind of day. The whole family cannot wait to go back 😊

We came here to celebrate our birthday, me and my hubby with our family... as we are travelling last Sat.Oct.29 we encountered the tropical storm "Paeng" . When we arrived at the resort, the heavy rains were pouring, but the staffs are accommodating that they help us brought our bags and proceed to the Dining area for a welcome drinks and a special treat bag for my daughter's pet. When we went to our room, we were surprised with birthday designs inside their nice room. We have surprised by our children in the next day as our birthday, they treat us a delicious dinner, cakes, &gifts. The staffs were singing happy birthday to us, while bringing the cake with candles &baloons..
Their food are delicious and with large portions, good for 2-3 persons.. We enjoyed our birthdays here even after the storm.. All the staffs are friendly and accomodating. By the way this is a friendly pet resort, so if you want to bring your pets, they have a pet zone here... If you have kids, they have also a mini playground for children.. They have cavanas and swings infront of the beach where in you can relax and breathe the sea breeze.
They will have an Al fresco bar to be open soon...This place is highly recommended, you will enjoy eating here with their delicious food prepared by their Chef. We will definitely come back here. This is a relaxing place to spend a weekend with your family and pets. Only 3 hrs. drive from Manila to their resort. Kudos to all the Staffs.
