- 2 hour drive from Alabang - Spacious and very clean rooms - Great for big family - Beachfront (Snorkling was fun too!) - Big servings of food - Nice staff and the owner is very accommodating too - Nice view of the Sunset - Lots of Instagrammable spaces too We stayed Sun-Mon and it looks like we rented the entire resort/place. We hope to come back again soon!

Very unpleasant stay here. Don’t get lured with this resort, customer service and courtesy is their LEAST priority. Ordered breakfast upon arrival and the owner asked us to pay for the food right away. Btw, the food is the worst... 🤢

Pros Nice view from beach front cottage. A pool nearby the cottages. Small beach resort which has a big chance of having only few guest if your family wants privacy. Staff are friendly and accommodating. Foods are good but don't go for "Ala Carte" 'coz ur like dining in a food chain ( other serving method can be requested). Cons Cottage rent is a bit pricey though value for the buck. Limited pay parking space. Boat rent is expensive thru in-house (cheaper from outside source)

We had the whole resort for our company and we enjoyed our stay there. I certainly love our room which was facing the view of Marikaban Island. There's an infinity pool and a small beach front. Good place to enjoy diving. Great serving of food and super friendly staff and dogs.

The place is perfectly situated in Mabini Batangas where you can capture great sunset pictures by the pool. I'd say the price is a bit high given that you'd only get a spacious CR. Bed is not that good including the pillows and blanket. Food menu is limited but we appreciate that the staff cooked and prepared the food at the terrace of our room. You can go to the beach but shores in Mabini is rocky, in any resorts. If you are looking for some quiet relaxation, this is the place to be,

Our overnight trip felt like we were visiting our own private beach house in Mabini. This was the vibe that we got from Vista Aplaya. We are a family of 4 (two kids under 7) who went to this place on a whim. What we loved, Clean comfortable rooms and facility, awesome views from our front porch. It’s located in a remote part of Mabini. Roads zig zag up and down the mountains. Worth the trip! Bring your own snorkeling gear but I think you can rent them there as well.

My family enjoyed our stay here. They were very friendly and welcoming. The place very relaxing and peaceful with a panoramic view of the sea and a homey feel. The food is good and the room is kept clean. Definitely need to go back here. 👍

Vista Aplaya is a quaint resort that feels so homey ang cozy. Having only a few rooms keeps the place quiet and cozy and the people more in touch with one another. We stayed overnight in this resort for a dive trip. Although the resort itself does not have a dive center, its adjacent hotel has the amenities for diving. What Vista Aplaya has is an infinity pool at the center of its property and a family style dining area that adds to its cozyness. The staff here is pleasant and friendly. Being family run, the resort has the touches of home and the owners take time out to chat with guests and make sure that they feel at home. The rooms are spacious and have 2 queen beds each, able to accommodate 4 people. The bathrooms are spacious, clean and well lit. Very homey interiors, with indirect lighting adding to the warmth in each room. All rooms have lanais which allows for more areas of conversation among guests. A well groomed garden makes the place beautiful too. The resort itself is by the water so access to the small shore is easy. Waves though can be quite strong especially during high tide and since this is Anilao, the shore is mainly rocky. Vista Aplaya is one place once an always return to. It will surely provide much needed rest and a bit of recreation.
