I was looking for a nice quiet place to spend the weekend, then I found Macampao Beach and Leisure Farm Resort. Reviews were very positive, and after a thorough research I decided to book it.

I was going alone and I booked their casa pawikan, accommodations comes with full board meals, unlimited coffee, mineral drinking water, and fruits that are available in the dining hall. You can also layout in the beach via your own hut or lounge chair.

Getting there is easy via a 4 hours and some odd minutes drive. You can google maps it or waze the directions. You can also take the bus, commuting instructions are also provided in their website.

Upon arriving there you already feel that you are transported to a different world. The resort buildings were built to harmonize with the sprawling property to be one with nature. I like the idea that they used recycled wood for their furnitures and most of the structures, also not entirely surprised that they practice a farm to table concept for the meals they serve.

Too bad that the typhoon dampened the trip, but it didn’t stop me from enjoying the resort and just having a nice time reading by the beach. There were only 6 other guests that day, and I really love the exclusivity and privacy the resort provides. The room is very comfy and homey you can definitely rest your worries away. They provide towels and human nature toiletries in the ensuite toilet and bath. Extra pillows are also available in the dresser in case you need more pillows. The food was delicious and hearty enough to fill you up! The staff are so warm and accommodating, they even went out of their way to surprise me with a birthday cake.

I think I found a new haven and I can’t wait to come back. Even my friends are now excited to check out the place.

Just returned from my nephews wedding at Macampao Beach and we all raved about how wonderful it was. We are so happy that we chose this resort to stay and also have the wedding reception.
The owners and staff really set this resort apart. To stay here is akin to staying at your mom's house for the holidays. Food is well prepared and skews toward Filipino cuisine. I am right now missing the fresh juices that they gave us for each meal; orange, pineapple, mango, calamansi (or something like it). Just wonderful. The owners; Annie and Anya went out of their way to make sure we had what we needed. Breakfasts typically were eggs and Filipino sausages, etc. Almost always fresh fruit as well. The property also has a fish pond so when they serve you fish, it came out of the pond earlier in the day. It does not get any better!
The pictures on their website do not do it justice. The buildings themselves are simply but beautifully built with antiques scattered throughout. One building has 4 spartan rooms with each 2 rooms sharing a bath. All rooms have a/c. The other newer building has eight rooms, all with private baths, and the rooms are nicer, but still fairly spartan. We had a fairly large group and I slept in a room for the first 2 nights. The rooster kept waking me up around 5:30A. I then moved to a beach cabana and never went back to a room, by choice. LOVED sleeping in the beach cabana, only steps away from the ocean. I can't remember how many they have, perhaps 12 that fit 2 people. The resort supplied us with a mattress, a light blanket, and pillows. They also set up a mosquito net in each and there was power so I did run the fan a couple of nights that were still and on the humid side. They also have a few larger beach cabanas that accommodate more people.
The beach is located "across the street" from the resort. The "street" is more like a one lane dirt road that has a car or trike every 15 minutes or so. The beach is really lovely, and is wide and long in front of the resort, and you can walk a long way in either direction. They do have kayaks and volleyball and other beach stuff available. They also have a lit bar on the beachside and we brought some drinks there every evening. I don't know if it is like this all the time but my nephews surfed every day and the waves were really good for it. I swam every day and it was good for that too. Perfect water temps, refreshing when entering but warm enough to stay in all day long....really. Not good for snorkeling, no reef. Sand on the beach was very good, slightly coarse but fine. The resort faces west so the sunsets were amazing! The evening before the wedding we were treated to a double rainbow right before the spectacular sunset, an experience that I will always remember.
We also had the reception at the back end of the resort and they did an amazing job as well. It was on a lawn area adjacent to the original building and the setting was beautiful in the evening with the lights and candles, truly memorable.
The only item that I can think of that is a negative is the lack of wifi, at least when we were there. I think this a temporary thing but not sure. We did need to have access so we used cell phones and created hotspots to get our work done.
If you have a larger family group traveling or a wedding, I can't think of a more perfect spot to be. It is about a 4 hour ride from Manila.

The place is gorgeous!!! The combination of beach and farm experience makes this place unique. We are a family of 9 adults .We occupied Hilid Salamin accommodation.The view from here is a "wow" as it is overlooking the sea in one side and the luscious trees in the other side.Beach activities: beach volleyball, badminton,kayaking. Inflatable pool next to the beach is very relaxing. The beach water is very clean and perfect for swimming. Bonfire in the night with bbq hotdog and marshmallows next in the beach in the night is also an option for additional cost.Farm activities: Fishing is fun!! You can get your catch clean and cook. We requested ours cooked and took them home. We took photos with the horse as we are too big to ride it..ha..ha.Food: Yummy!!!! All included in our overnight package. Forget your diet as they serve varieties in big servings of main meals and snacks. Bowls of fruits in season and tea/coffee are available anytime.The view: it is "stunning" anywhere you look at.The place is very clean,very private and safe.My elderly mother who is 84 years old had a good time playing "sungka " with us . We also had a go in playing the billiard. We can not find any fault to this place.By the way, do not look for tv...but wifi is available.

When we booked this, it said it was All Inclusive, well, it's not. We've stayed in all inclusive resorts before, where you can leave your wallet and credit card in your room and just relax and enjoy. Well, not here. It says you can pick fruits, yes, but then you have to pay for the fruit you pick and eat. It says you can go fishing, yes, but you have to pay per kilo for the fish you catch. You can eat by the beach, they have tables there, but you have to pay extra to eat by the beach. Money, money, more money, sure we paid my mom's catch, it was her birthday, she liked the sampaloc fruits she picked (you can buy fish and fruits a lot cheaper outside too). We complained, we said this is not all-inclusive, we felt duped. So they let us eat by the beach free of charge. There are other resorts next to this one, if we ever go back, we'll try those.

Also, it's not just that we have to pay extra, it's how the manager would come in from nowhere saying, "That's not free, you have to pay for that" so, you feel like someone's always watching, making sure you don't have anything you haven't paid for, annoying.

P.S. some of the workers were very nice (except the manager), food was very good. The place has been decorated nicely, beautiful touches.

We chose this place for a birthday celebration as this was a recommendation by a friend. Food, room and hospitality is very good BUT there is a major security concern. On the day of our checked out we we discovered that our money were stolen. There were cctv in the area ,in front of our door, dining area etc., but when we requested to view it , we were surprised that the cctv was not working because of compatibility issues. We reported it to the police to.make sure that this won't happen again.
We hope that they did something about it but we will not come back because of the trauma.

We went here just last Saturday, February 7 and stayed overnight 'til the 8th.
Kudos to their helpful and very accommodating staff. Ms. Anya and her mom (I forgot to ask Mommy's name) are just so nice and kind all throughout. Our visit might be short and quiet "bitin", but surely we will come back to this place. Peaceful and calm, just perfect if you want some time to think and relax away from the busy streets of Manila.
What I like the most here is that the place is not crowded, we were just like three or four groups of guests (and I think less we were less than 20 people), the unique feel of sleeping and waking up to the sound of waves (if you'll stay in their Cabanas), awesome experience of releasing of baby sea turtles to the sea, great set of meals and it's like you'll never feel you're hungry, literally a lot of food!(given all meals are included in their package rates, from breakfast, lunch, "merienda" and dinner), the FOOD WAS SUPERB!
Lastly, their produce of RIPE MANGOES that are serve every meal, especially the mango smoothie!!! Oh yes, I'm a huge fan of ripe mangoes!!! We were also able to score 5 kilos of them to bring home to Manila.
Macampao is worth your time and visit. We will definitely be back soon! :)

This spot is s gem on the Zambales coast line. A group of 4 of us spent a long weekend for my birthday, and it was excellent. A family run farm-resort, which really does specialise in amazing spreads of local produce at meal times. You have 300m of private coast line. The family and staff were delightful, use of kayaks, fishing, etc was free. We surfed at the resort, but also went to San Filipe, explored the area a little, had massages on the beach and ate way too much. Make sure you ask for dinner on the beach one night. Highly recommended if you are wanting a special experience on the Zambales coast.

Stayed overnight with my 13 year old son and husband. The drive is long but you can make stops along the way. Tita Annie (owner's mom) greeted us happily and did the check-in quickly. Our lunch was waiting for us too. This is a great place where everyone is genuinely friendly and aim to please. The three best points of Macampao were: the food, the room, and the ambiance. Meals and snacks were plentiful always accompanied with refreshing fruit shakes (none of that fake juice/syrup), viands were at least three, and water was available. The room (4D in Casa Logoy) was very clean and smelled great, sheets and towels were white and soft, not worn out, AC strong enough to keep it cool. Ambience is perfect for quiet getaways. My son rode the horse, had a massage in-room, and had fun playing billiards.

Beach was okay although I saw a plastic wrapper of mamon floating while I was swimming. If I were to gripe about something, it would be that the water from the tap was salty so brushing your teeth can be challenging. However, this is very minor and the resort's pros far outweigh its few cons.

Staying in Macampao is like living in your own, dream beach house! The owners value the privacy and comfort of their guests. They limit bookings and even pre-arrange guests who would most likely complement each other. Throughout our stay, the owner herself - our gracious host Mrs. Felix, treated us as if we were her family's guests as she personally welcomed us, attended to our meals (which were included in the package) & requests, animatedly chatted with us as we dined, and introduced us to the other guests as they arrived. Since we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, we were even given a complementary bottle of wine and Mrs. Felix offered us a toast along with two other expat families who joined in our celebration. It was a much-appreciated gesture, reflecting her genuine hospitality to her guests. The resort staff were all so attentive, anticipating what we would most likely need and want from our vacation.

Food servings were generous, with balanced portions of carbs, protein & fiber, mostly sourced from their farm produce and their fish pen. Reminded me of Sunday lunch with my own family wherein my mom would cook her bestseller, homemade dishes meant to satisfy even the heartiest appetite. Unlike our other beach trips, we didn't have to worry about what or where to eat since meals were all prepared from their kitchen. All we had to do was take our place in the dining room and anticipate what would be served.

The beach was nothing less than perfect! It was paradise for beach-lovers like our family. We had a 300-m stretch of beach all to ourselves on our first night. The sand was light gray & sparkling! It was not powdery sand like Boracay, but it was fine enough to walk on without aqua shoes (though it could get very hot mid-day!). It actually had a nice, coarse feel to it (like the type you use to exfoliate dead skin). Best part of it for me was the fact that there was a lifeguard on duty as long as we were swimming, as per Mrs. Felix's orders. She could get protective; as I said, she reminds me of my doting mom. They probably have the same mantra - "moms will be moms," whatever age their adult children are. For someone with kids, that's a big plus! There were also no additional charges for the use of all other amenities (volleyball, badminton, frisbee, even horseback riding). There was a cold water dispenser by the beach to prevent dehydration. What more can you ask for? They thought of everything.

We didn't want to leave. Can't wait for the next long weekend to return to Macampao...

Spent some time with my family for overnight stay. We enjoyed the place and happy with the courteous people there. We were well taken cared.

We are planning to go back, hopefully the beach will not be as wavy as last time.

Looking forward to our next trip soon!
