CASA ASTILLERO - CALATAGAN BATANGAS BEACH RESORT

Are you looking for a perfect getaway this summer? and you don't want to travel that far from Metro Manila.  Check out this place we discover in Calatagan Batangas.  Nice Beach, grayish fine sand and very affordable rates.

This is our place for my Quarter 1 Team Building and we had a blast.  We're able to cook are food/grill, drink all night, swim and explore the place in our 2 days one night escape.

This is the group package we took advantage of:



Group Package (Good for 20 Pax)

3 Open cottages / Shoreline Cottage

2 Big Tents

Gill Station
Price = P5,500   


Here are some pictures of the resort:

  10. This resort is not even a resort per se...it will took you 20 minutes before you reach the shoreline...dadaan ka muna sa mala kumunoy na putikan...plus the beach water is super malagkit..we booked ds 7k..d deposit is done 2500..and after we arrived the caretaker went immediately to us to asked for the remaining balance of 4,500..usu.kinabuksan pa yun db..we gave the money but after 4 hours..reality came to us to refund d amount bcoz it's not really worth it..we came to the owner and asked for the refund...d cr is quite awful too..bad locks,bad smell, waley ang view,rough road..is short SUPER BAD EXPERIENCE!!!

    1. Hi Ms. Zeny,

      Yes, nakakasad po ang naexperience nila.. But its all up to u po.. Not all destinations are perfect, even el nido , boracay, palawan have flaws, its all up to u. I'm just relating what I had experience.. At the end of the day, UL be the one deciding if u wanna enjoy it or not :)

      Happy travel!!!

  12. It's not really advisable to go this resort. It sucks big time! To start is off, there's no sighpn on the road on where casa astillero is. We need to ask the people there on the location of the resort.

    1. When you arrive at the resort, you'll immediately be disappointed and say, "eto na yun?" The view is not fantastic.
    2. If you are after privacy, do not rent the biggest tent. It is see-through. We weren't expecting that. Tsk tsk.
    3. The beach is too shallow. Malayo na yung nalakad mo pero mababaw parin. Not really recommended for those who wants to swim.
    4. They only have 4 cubicles for the girls' restroom (i dont know for the boys).. 2 with toilets, the rest are simply shower rooms (though the shower is not working).
    5. The water in the CR is sooooooooo annoying! Ang konti ng lumalabas na tubig. Nakakainis talaga. Pwede ka nang matulog muna habang hinihintay yung tubig
    6. The farther part of the beach is full of plants underneath. Sea urchins hide on those plants. Beware, you might step on it. Ouch!

    The price paid is not worth it. I suggest you just find another beach/resort that is MUCH BETTER than Casa Astillero.

  15. I went to Casa Astillero, it was easy to find for me. You just have to follow the instructions given in their confirmation email,
    they even provided a map, with complete details. I enjoyed my stay tho. We got the biggest tent and it was really big like 8 ft tall?
    Malamig , di malamok at mahangin kasi seethrough yung tent. OO nga shallow yung tubig but we found a "sand bar" walang kahit anong bato or weeds just go to the left part of the beach, malinaw na malinaw yung tubig. They have 4 decent CR's pwede na, malakas naman yung tubig during our stay.

    We went to sa Burot first but sobrang dumi ng CR saka overcharging sila sa entrance pati tubig pangligo may bayad.
    Some of the guest had to poop sa beach mismo kasi overcrowded and they only have portable toilets made from square tin can/ lata. Not really nice - its dirty and no electricity sa Burot.

    One of my friend lost her camera and the Casa Astillero staff found it. Honest and mga staff ng Casa. It may not be 100% perfect but you can't expect a 5 star facility from a P100 bucks entrance fee. We had a great camping experience.
