Les Caraibes Beach Resort @ Laiya, San Juan, Batangas
After looking at several Beach Resorts in Laiya, we ended up at Les Caraibes Beach Resort (the other resorts we went to were either full of people, did not have any restaurant, closed for a wedding, fully booked or did not accept any day trips). Les Caraibes was practically empty, there was nobody here except the Resort Staff. It was beside resorts which were full of people (Dolores and another resort).
The Entrance was priced at 280 per head (this is if you will buy food from them) and 380 per head if you will bring your own food (they have grilling stations beside the picnic hut). The Staff here were friendly and efficient. The food was good also.
The Beach at Laiya is not White as in Boracay White but good enough for a Beach just 2 hours away from Manila. The water was clear except for the presence of leaves, branches and other Man Made Litter floating on the water. The beach had those occasional trash (wrappers, junk food wraps, plastic, etc) left by people with disregard for the environment. The sand was also littered with Cigarette Butts. It would have been perfect except for these Man Made Trash.
