Located at the north-western tip of Mindoro Island, Coco Beach offers a breathtaking view of Batangas Bay with a serenity of a real private island and an accommodation fit for a king. With its wide selection of rooms and amenities that families, group of friends, couples or even solo travelers could enjoy, Coco Beach also offers some astonishing activities that one or all could enjoy while staying at this heavenly side of the island.
Booking a room
When my friend and I decided to visit Coco Beach, we booked a room through their website, www.cocobeach.com. The site came very handy with tips and suggestions on how to enjoy our stay here. The feel and service were also great that made everything hassle-free. Their sales team who handled my request was very friendly and made sure that everything went well and smoothly, which to my surprise was really good. I didn’t expect it, honestly, but it was a 5-star hotel kind of service that everyone should try.
So, just when you thought you had the best of Puerto Galera when you visited Sabang Beach with its white sand and wild party at night, Coco Beach offers a very unique and very local treatment that will surely change the image of Puerto Galera that you have in mind – it did on me.
Our room, which is a Deluxe Room is located on the top of the hill. It was quite a trek, but I seriously think that we had the best room in the entire property. The view was superb, and the serenity – which what I really needed that time – was divine. I love how we were surrounded by so many coconut trees, and along the way were flowering plants that added such grandeur feel despite the simplicity of the whole place.
Our host family always made sure that we’re okay and visits or sees us every once in a while. They are like your long lost relatives who are very shy at first but still accommodate you and makes sure that you are 100% comfortable and convenient, well-fed and just enjoying life.
Don’t worry about your cravings, because here at Coco Beach, they offer a wide variety of dishes that you could indulge on. From our all-time favorite Filipino cuisine to Asian, American, and even some European.
Right now, Coco Beach Island Resort has 3 restaurants – the Carabao Restaurant, which serves comforting Filipino food. This is also the main restaurant of the resort. On its second level is the Barracuda Bar & Music Lounge that serves good drinks and music.
For some Asian dishes, Coco Grill Restaurant, which is located on the hillside part of the property called the Banana Village. The view from here was so spectacular that you could enjoy the ocean and on clear, cloudless nights, the serene coastal towns of Batangas. The Coco Grill Restaurant offers dishes from China, Indonesia, Cambodia, Lebanon, Malaysia, Japan, Thailand, India, Singapore, Vietnam, Korea & Brunei.
Aside from that, during sunset, the view here was so heart-melting that you can’t take your eyes off of the horizon. SO LOVELY!
Coco Beach has also a revolving restaurant, which is located at the eastern part of the property, called Doña Lina Revolving Restaurant. This place offers three to five-course meal in the middle of the restaurant and attended by well-trained staff. But sadly, due to the recent typhoon, this place is still under renovation.
From warm accommodation, cozy room and wonderful meals, Coco Beach Island Resort completes its stunning offering with its high-quality amenities that made our stay truly memorable and fun. From free island hop to inspiring shopping arcade and Cable Jeepney, Coco Beach filled our weekend vacation with so much love and comfort without even trying so hard.
For those who are still asking for other amenities, the resort also pampers their guest with their Behiya Spa, or ad extra adventure through their Coco Divers. Kids will definitely have more fun on their swimming pools, or maybe, just maybe, learn something new like creating a coco soap or just let them play at their playground.
Book worms and Movie geeks have a special place here in Coco Beach through their Coco Cinema and library room. And lastly, since they care so much about their guests, the resort has their own medical clinic just in case something unwanted happens.
