Canyon Cove Residential Beach Resort in Nasugbu, Batangas - A Review

It's definitely getting harder and harder to enjoy a beach that's clean, if you're living in Manila, without having to fly to it or drive a little farther in the nearby provinces of Cavite and Batangas, and Pangasinan and Zambales.

Canyon Cove in Nasugbu, Batangas offers a beach that's clean with sand great for playing in, and a pool area with a magnificent view. I just don't know though if it's La Nina or that area is just really cold... but gosh, was it cold when we were there. The pool water was cold and the buffeting winds were also cold. The beach water was cold too but it's less windy there. The sunset was very beautiful.

The main Canyon Cove hotel offers a great view of the water, rays of the sun to wake you up, and the sunset to make you feel all kinds of sentimental. Hubs said that he read a lot of bad reviews for this resort so our expectations weren't high. But all in all, we also found the resort good in terms of the beach/pool offering and its relative proximity to Manila (because I think Zambales, Bataan and those areas are still farther, and I could be wrong). Yes, we found the rates a little steep, but we were able to get a 20% discount.

Plus, the Superior Unit, the smallest room at 40 sq. m. is a big room.


it essentially has two beds, the other one by the window can easily accommodate kids... and the main bed is a king-sized one




bathroom has a shower area apart from the bathtub (where you can also shower)


but our bathtub's paint was peeling so drawing a bath was out of the question


the bed


Our aircon wasn't busted but it wasn't that cold either. We had to turn the thermostat (the dial of which was broken) to the coolest temp and keep it at that. We were comfortably cold... one of our friends had to call to have their aircon fixed though because it was just not getting cold in their room.

They do offer beach towels and there are enough towels in the room so you need not bring any. They also provide enough shampoo, shower gel and soap for a weekend stay. No toothbrush/toothpaste though.

I think I also should mention that I was expecting rhinitis from my boys, who are very sensitive to dust, because I wasn't sure just how well they clean the rooms. Plus, the pillows on the bay window bed were dusty. However, we all slept like a baby in the main bed, with no sneezing fits even after we got home.

I believe this is where the suites are located

the playground


all rooms, as you can see, have balconies


there are three main pools, the kiddie one being only two feet high

water was clean, the sand taupe and generally fine


feel free to bring your own pools, lifesavers or boats

kids love sand


the parking area at night, which can be seen from the corridor leading to our rooms

There are two elevators servicing the main hotel. What I also liked about the layout of the hotel rooms is that all rooms are to the right of one long corridor. Then, there are wide gaps leading to two rooms/doors facing each other, affording extra privacy to room occupants from other guests who may be walking the length of the corridor. Plus, the doors, when opened, offer a view of the closet so unless people will be naked at the door, it shouldn't be an issue if both doors open at the same time.

There's a wifi area near the front desk of the lobby.

We didn't really explore Canyon Cove's facilities nor did we dine there. Our discounted room rate also didn't come with breakfast so we just ate the sandwiches we had with us for breakfast. We had lunch at Kainan sa Dalampasigan before checking in, and ate at Mang Inasal (at the town proper, around 10-15 minutes away) for dinner and lunch the next day. Canyon Cove was offering P600/head buffet but since we weren't sure of the food, we found it steep especially since our friends had nannies and drivers to feed too.

There is a general impression that the resort could be greater if its staff were more properly trained and if it paid attention to the fine details. Better management perhaps? Plus, our friends said that the staff didn't seem busy, when there were so many guests, which gave the impression that the resort was overstaffed... because the staff were just standing together in groups.

They also failed to get our Ving cards from us upon checkout and I totally forgot to surrender them.

Would we return? Sure, if we can get discounts again. I think it's a nice getaway for couples too... and a nice prenuptial photo opp location.

Do I highly recommend the place? Not really... but I also am not ranting about Canyon Cove. Our experience there was good.

this is the beach that has worst staff ever. and guess what? we had a breakfast there (free because of membership) but the food was really blahh and my mom and maid could cook better. we also had dinner there and the food was 280 choices are fish or chicken or beef steak tagalog w/ rice and few veg. but it wasn't that special. more like home cooked thing. very high priced stuff over there junk food costs 50 each which is only around 20 in manila. LOL. view is really great. aircon is really low. nothing special about this place. boring.
