Checking-In Buceo Anilao
When we booked our stay, we were advised that we should call the resort 30 minutes before we arrive so they can be ready. So, when we reached the parking lot, their staff are there waiting for us. There is a little bit of walk towards the entrance of the resort, so the staff assisted us.
We arrived earlier than the check-in time, so we had our welcome drinks, and had our lunch in their restaurant first.
Sea View Superior Room
We booked their Sea View Superior Room because it has the best view. Here’s how the room looks like, it has two beds, a double bed, and a single bed, which can accommodate up to three people.
Their comfort room is nice too. It has a hot and cold shower, shampoo, and bath towels.
Some of the features of the room are:
- Drying Racks
- Electric Kettle
- Cups and mugs
One of our favorite features of the room is the balcony wherein we get to stay and look at the sea.
Sunsets are also nice to view from here.
Amenities and Features of Anilao Buceo
The resort has a lot of amenities, and we have also included some of the features.
Anilao, Batangas is known for diving spots, so their beach here is a pebble beach. If you enjoy the sea, it’s nice if you take a dip here.
If you prefer to swim in a pool, Anilao Buceo has a pool too. Plus it has a nice view of the ocean!
There are two pools, one is for the introduction to scuba diving, and the other is a regular pool.
Sunbathing beds are all around so feel free to use them.
Scuba Diving Lessons
The president of the resort is a scuba diving instructor, so if you have decided to get your introduction to scuba diving here, there is a big chance that he’ll be the teacher.
We’ll be talking about our lessons in a separate blog, but here’s a Moray Eel to say “Hi”!
Unlimited Coffee and Tea
Guests can enjoy unlimited coffee and tea all the time.
For fitness buffs, a gym is also available.
It’s nice to chill and have a drink here.
At night, it’s better because there is music. I can imagine this area pre-pandemic… There might be a lot of people here dancing and getting to know each other.
If you love the spa, especially massages, this is the area that you will love.
The Spa is located at the top of the resort, so there is a nice view of the ocean.
So, we have decided to take a romantic sunset whole body massage here.
It was nice and relaxing.
There is a lot of flowers, and the landscaping of the whole property is nice, plus there is the pool and the ocean view. So, the whole property is actually IG-Worthy!
One of the things that we miss during the pandemic is the breakfast buffet. So, we were happy when we saw that there is a buffet.
During our stay, the dishes that are available are ham, fried rice, two kinds of cereals, different kinds of eggs, toast, fruits, and different kinds of juices.
This is one of the features that I love. The staff together with the owners are pushing the boats to the shore to be parked. Even some of the foreign guests helped, I think this is new to them (and to us).
This really shows the Filipino Bayanihan, which is helping one another to achieve something. Which in this case is to park the boats because there is a storm coming.
Buceo Anilao has a restaurant that can cater to all of its guests. It’s also nice that their staff remembers where we want to seat whenever we will dine here.
Here are some of the dishes that we ordered.
Ripe Mango Shake
I love how this made me so refreshed after a bit of a hike haha. It has the right level of sweetness.
This is one of their bestsellers, the Pork Sisig. It tasted good and has a bit of crunch.
Fish Mango Ceviche
Busy and I want to try new dishes, so when we saw this on the menu, we ordered this one. This is like the local Kilawin but there are mangoes all over.
This one is good for vegetarians because there is no meat in it. The sauce is made out of classic Italian tomato sauce and veggies.
This is my first dish when we arrive, and it gave me a very good impression immediately. Aside from it tasted good, there is a lot of serving.
Finally here is the dessert that we have, the Mango Crepe.
We are sharing their menu here.
