Reviewed 5 November 2016

Today I spend my life in this very relaxing place. Cheap because you can bring food and drinks without corkage fee, you just have to pay the entrance fee and cottage fee.You can also order food and drinks in the resort at minimal charge. You can freely bring your own jet ski and water sports. You can choose to swim in the pool or in the the sea. And you can choose to stay in one of their resort rooms or in the tree house. The resort also had various animals to spend time with...it has fish spa, talking birds, python, peacock, big koi fishes, and ostrich...One thing I like in here is its serenity... great for lovers.

Room Tip: try the rooms in the tree house facing the sea

Kids loved the swimming pool with slides and water sprays. The grounds were beautifully kept, many animals including birds and snakes (in a cage) to see. The beach is nothing but rocks. Rooms are adequate, restaurant is below par food quality.

Baybayon ni Agalon is a nice beach resort. Me and my family stayed only for 1 night to spend and celebrate my father's birthday. July 2016.

Place: Overall, this is an interesting resort. My father said that this resort has already improved and got better since he last visited the place. Well, this was my first time to visit the place, and I can say that this place is good for vacation, fun, and relaxation.

Staff: Staffs were nice and attended to your needs well. They have enough staffs for the resort and they are available to cater your needs. The staff assigned to the zoo were nice and kind too.

Room: The room was clean, overall and with proper ventilation. The room we had was a family room and located at the 2F just in front where some animals are located.
The room had AC, minifridge, huge closet, security vault, water heater with mugs, 2 complimentary drinking bottled water, tea/coffee/sugar, TV, bedside table with lampshade, wide bathroom with hot/cold shower, bathtub, and lavatory.

Pool: The pool is wide enough. Overall, they have a nice pool with "mushroom shed" and seats were you can stay and relax while you are on the waters. They have a good/creative structure of the pool. Depth: 4 ft to 6 ft.

Beach: The beach was nice though it was rocky. But rocks were soft so it's fine to take a dip at the beach.

Food: We have not tried their food, because we just brought our own food. I think food and beverages are not that expensive. (TIP: you can bring your own F&B -- no corkage fee)

Other amenities:
Zoo: They have lots of fish ponds and some cottages were located near the ponds. They also have snakes, fish spa, iguanas -- which were freed from cages and can walk everywhere (don't worry they are harmless), talking parrots, etc. TIP: you have to carry the albino snake -- it's free and it's very exciting. I tried and the snake was so heavy (20kg), but it was exciting though. You must also try the fish spa which costs 20 per 10 mins.
WiFi: Their free WiFi had a great connection.

***Value for money: The price is right. Not that expensive.
***Location: Resort is just less than 30 minutes from Ormoc City.

YOU SHOULD TRY THIS RESORT.

Room Tip: 2F on the same bldg where the reception area is located -- beach front where you can see the beach/m...

Baybayon Ni Agalon Resort Hotel, I stayed there for 3 nights and I really like the ambience that they’ve put together with the wide green garden (I can say it was well-maintained), the beach, the pool with the view of the coconuts. It gives you this relaxing summer vibe.

Accessibility: The Resort is situated in Albuera, Leyte. It’s a 10-15 minute drive from the city of Ormoc. So if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, Agalon Resort Hotel is perfect for that.

Room: It was very cozy. Full-on air-conditioning. The 3-in-1 coffee and Tea was a good touch to it aside from providing one free bottled water. I love the fact that you could always go out and breathe in the overwhelming beauty of its surroundings.

The food: You can budget around 200-300 per meal since a la carte good for 2 persons.

Service: The staff, specially the front desk was very friendly.

Noticeably, the resort is a go-to place for the typical Filipino family going out for the weekend. Monday was lot quieter, more serene, and you could fully enjoy a nice afternoon coffee while experiencing a glorious view of the sunset.

Overall, I would recommend this resort hotel for those who are having a wedding reception, honeymoon, birthdays and anniversaries, business conventions.

We went here for a day trip only and just stayed for lunch. This was the second time someone had brought me here, the first being a number of years ago. This place is a rocky beachfront with nice gardens and pools. Gets visitors who rent tables etc for lunch and day trips. Accommodation is available but we did not stay overnight.

For me it would be a great place if I was deaf or I could deal with multiple music sources playing bad music from all angles. A place like this, would be better with no music; far more relaxing because the gardens and pools are nice.

There are some animals, I saw a snake, a bird that can say a few words, an ostrich and/or emu (2), and some lizards in a pond which were interesting. Also of interest was the fish spa where you place your feet in a fish pond and they eat off all the gunk on your feet - that was the highlight of the stay.

As we were leaving they did have the snake out of the wire cage draped over a few shoulders (And at that point I could not wait to leave as someone decided it was a nightclub and started playing very loud thumping musac).

....I should note I do have noise issues and perhaps the Philippines is not the place for me. 90% of Filipinos must live in each others laps and would be subject to constant noise, so I can't see the appeal of going to a nice place and spoil it with noise they get at home.

Room Tip: If you prefer a quiet place then this is not for you

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Baybayon ni Agalon is a scenic picnic resort located in Malitbog, Albuera, Leyte, only 28.9 km from Ormoc City, the capital of Ormoc in the province of Leyte, Philippines. Set against a backdrop of misty mountains and tropical seacoast, Baybayon ni Agalon offers unique accommodations where nature-lovers can bask in unspoiled beauty while remaining close to the city. With pebble stones for the beach, the waters are clear and inviting for swimming. There is also a large swimming pool for those who prefer not to swim in the beach. Baybayon ni Agalon has a sprawling lawn which is nicely landscaped and suitable for sunny family picnics. A good number of beautifully thatched-straw-roof kiosks are spread evenly for shade and seating. Just near the entrance and by the swimming pool, there is a large fresh water koi pond with kiosk islands. A restaurant serves mostly Filipino cuisine, but guests can also bring in food without incurring any corkage. Children will find the outdoor trampoline and playground most appealing. Not far away, a mini-zoo with exotic birds like Mynas, Peacocks, Guinea Fowls, Ostriches, etc. and reptiles such as an Albino Burmese Python will surely satisfy their insatiable curiosity. A fish spa pedicure tank is also present in the resort and offers a unique treatment. Gara rufa fish, also called doctor fish, nibble fish, kangal fish, and bonefish (in New England) is a species of fish that lives and breeds in the pools of some Turkish river systems and hot springs. In modern times, they have been integrated as a spa treatment, where they feed on the dead skin of patients (exfoliation). There are at present twenty three (23) rooms that make up a mini hotel to cater those who would like for an overnight or an extended stay. The rooms are made up of twenty (20 deluxe rooms), two (2) family rooms, and one (1) tree house. Occasionally, function/conference rooms are converted to dormitories making for an instant hostel. Lastly, Baybayon ni Agalon is owned, managed and operated by the Iñaki Larrazabal Enterprises. ... more   less
