Disgusting, deceiving resort in Anilao!
I checked out this supposedly 'lovely resort' 2 weeks before our booking & to my utter disgust, what the resort wants to project is not what we found when we arrived there last Saturday. It is far different from what you see on their website.To describe to you the cottage given to us, this is what we found and the reason why we left the place. 1. the white hanging decorative fabric on the ceiling was full of brown stains, perhaps caused by leaking water on the roof, molds and plenty of dust visibly on display 2. we found a creeping centipede looking insect at the corner of the room near the toilet 3. the cottage had too much large mosquitoes (some with white spots that can cause dengue fever) who must be living there for weeks without being disturbed by insecticides or the housekeepers 4. the bathrooms are just fit for the drivers & maids (sorry to say, no intention to insult them) not for relaxing & paying guests 5. the cottage is unclean with cobwebs at the corners of the room with piled dust included. 6. the wiring of the air-conditioning could lead to some accidents 7. the sliding door of the cottage needs a strong hard push to open or close it 8. the room has no refrigerator for our cold drinks 9. the old curtains are too narrow to cover the sun 10.the narrow driveway is not very welcoming & could lead your vehicle to fall on the cliff. 11. not safe for kids & some elderly due to lack of railings on some areas. 12. the cottage is not safe enough as intruders can easily open your door as most of the walls are just made of thin glass covered by old narrow curtains. Generally, the condition 'per se' of this resort does not justify the price they want for their guests. I just wonder where they got all those beautiful pictures posted all over the internet ? So far from Camp Netanya where we stayed before proceeding to this resort.

DANGEROUS.... HAZARDOUS
After our short lived visit we abandoned our vacation plans and forfeited our advanced paid room. Everyone’s definition of luxury is so subjective so I will try to keep this review as objective as possible. Aside from getting into details about what what we do or do not appreciate in a resort, first and foremost you need to know this. 1. The road leading down to the resort is one lane only, it is very steep, it is NOT a fully paved road, and it is descending the edge of the face of a mountain cliff. Exiting the resort, because it is 1-lane only, the first part of the accent must be done with the vehicle in reverse. We were driving both a brand new Ford Explorer and a well maintained Hyundai Tucson and with both SUV’s we found it very difficult and hazardous to use this access road. 2. The resort main lobby terrace does NOT have a proper balustrade or railings. If you happen to fall off the edge, you could fall 10 feet to the rocks below. Other parts of their walkways and decks are also without proper railings. 3. Upon inspection, we found many of the rooms to smell mouldy which poses as a health risk. Further evidence was shown by the mold stained furnishings and mold stained canvas ceilings. There was also an exposed live electrical wire at the aircon outlet. To sum up, we had the impression that concern for safety was grossly neglected by management. So, I will leave you with the 3 main cautionary points above as quality of accommodation is very subjective and there are already many reviews regarding this, but in general I feel that most resorts with this level of offering are priced for about half of what Casita Ysabel is charging.

Peaceful sanctuary near Metro Manila.
I'm glad to have discovered this place which was recommended by a friend. I went there with my husband on a weekend. It was easy to find via Waze. When we got there, we notice how the place is clean and well-designed (Balinese-inspired). I appreciate the small details which tell me that the owner of this resort has good sense of aesthetics/design. The sun was about to set when we arrived and it was just marvelous! I was telling my husband that the world-famous sunset in Roxas Boulevard pales in comparison to the sunset from Casita Ysabel. For me, if only to witness this colourful sunset from the day bed right outside our room was already enough to soothe our tired city souls. We stayed at Natalia (highly recommended!) which was beach front and had comfortable day bed. The room's spacious and clean. The staff had difficulty opening the door though and there's a slight hint of damp smell which was probably because it's rainy season. The bed is clean (I always feel it right away if it's not clean and this room is surely clean). The mattress though was not very comfortable because we woke up with slight back ache, hehe! We also notice the dust on the small lampshade in our room. We like it that there's no TV because for us, vacations are, as much as possible, about relaxation (being unplugged, offline, etc.). The dinner (fried meat) and breakfast set meals that went with our rainy day package was okay but nothing special. The lunch (something with tomato sauce) was quite tasty. My favourite was the dessert (friend banana sprinkled with sesame seeds)! The next day, we went snorkelling. The water is clear and clean and there are already lots of fishes even if it's low tide! We didn't feel the need to go farther as we're already happy with what we saw but the owner said that we should have gone at least a few meters more and we would have been delighted. We met the owner who was a gracious woman and you can tell that Casita Ysabel is her very own sanctuary and we're just happy to have been welcomed to her place. She even advised us where to buy good coffee beans and tablea when were about to leave. Thank you for sharing us your space! There are 2 big dogs who were so sweet and would accompany us. The mother (named Buttons) was being such a gracious host to us as she would accompany us from the dining room to our room and would stay outside for a little while as if ensuring that we are ok! :-) We'll definitely come back. We recommend this for those who are looking for a beautiful place to pause and recharge in nature's quiet beauty without breaking the bank or having to fly. Thank you, Casita Ysabel!

I keep coming back.
June 2017 was the first time I went to Casita Ysabel. Then, come August, I was there again! The place is peaceful and welcoming and just beautiful. A nice retreat from busy Manila. And a short drive at that. During my first visit, my friends and I snorkelled and did a bit of kayaking. A short distance from their beach front is a marine sanctuary. On my second visit, I was lucky to spot a pawikan (sea turtle) 🐢🐢🐢🎉🎉🎉 🐠 🐠🐠 doing its morning feeding as I snorkel on the surface. The place has three friendly "big dogs" who are just super adorable 😍 so we befriended them during our stay. (This reveals so much that I am a dog person.😁😁😁) One of them likes to put his head on my lap as I eat. Another one of them would play fetch with us by the beach. And the other one would just stay with our "casita" and would guard our door at night. 🐶 🐶 I will post our photos during my visit to give you an idea of the place. Drop me a line when you have the chance to visit Casita Ysabel! See you!

A place to breathe
I have recently visited Casita Ysabel with a few close friends. It was my first time and I was impressed with the architecture of the whole resort. Whichever way you look from gives you a beautiful vista of the whole resort and nature. I love the resort's rooms--very cozy and seriously, makes you feel like home. The best part of the resort for me is the deck by the sea. It cool breeze will certainly lull you as you get a good view of the sunset. Truly, a good place to breathe in and recharge. Will definitely go back and bring family and friends with me.
