Sabangan Beach Resort is one of the several resorts lining up the Laiya coastline. It’s situated right after Blue Coral Beach Resort and before the famous Acuatico. Unlike Blue Coral, Sabangan has few cottages/lofts available for rent, which means that the place don’t get too crowded especially during peak seasons. Compared with Acuatico, Sabangan is a bit on the older side. There’s a homey-kind-of-feel into the cottages and lofts of Sabangan.
To celebrate my son’s 3rd year birthday, we booked a two-bedroom bungalow in Sabangan. This accomodation consists of one master bedroom with two twin-size beds and another room with a queen size bed. There’s a common comfort room between these two rooms and infront is a mini-terrace. The bungalow is made mostly of wood so it doesn’t get too hot even at night. Just the same, both rooms are equipped with air-conditioning unit. On the terrace, there’s also an “old/aging” refrigerator which takes forever to warm up or should I say cool down?
The accomodations cost us Php 15,000 for an overnight stay. That includes two full meals (dinner and breakfast) and two snacks. All food are “lutong bahay” so don’t expect to be served with fancy fares. Overall the food was ok. Not too fancy and yet not too boring. Pinoy food lovers will surely appreciate the food choices served in Sabangan.
Sabangan Beach Resort also has a kiddie pool and a regular sized pool for adults (4 feet). It’s clean and cozy although, the infinity pool of Acuatico is way better. If you don’t feel like dipping into the pool, you can always swim on the crystal clear waters of the Laiya beach.
Overall, our stay in Sabangan was good. Not that great but good enough for a quick weekend getaway. My only gripe is that although the full meals included in the package is good for six persons, the management of the beach resort might want to consider adding more “fish” variety into the meals served especially during dinner. The owner of the beach resort might also consider improving the room conditions of their cottages. While the comfort rooms/bath rooms are well kept and clean, the water supply is kind of low. By the way kudos to the staff and crew of the beach resort. They were all pleasant, accomodating and easy to deal with.
