Nov 17, 2016 - Family vacation
This is a spur of the moment trip for the whole family and I am definitely thankful that I discovered Traveloka. Even if it's a long weekend, I still got the rooms in affordable prices. Surely, there will be more trips booked in Traveloka. Matabungkay Beach has been my family's go to trip way back in the 90's and I am glad that they have slowly renovated to what it is now. We were actually amazed when we arrived because the resort is gated and secured. The lobby is classy and the whole area is just massive. There were a lot of cars in the parking lot but we didn't feel cramped when we were at the beach or even at the pools. I also loved that there were citronella plants all over. No mosquitoes around, yey! Just don't expect anything grand in the beach. It's coral filled and the shore is just about a meter or so. The water's very clear though. There are a lot of fishes swimming. There are some parts of the beach that is very sandy. But when you walk further, there will be plants rooted in the sand. But if your like to walk in the water and go as far as you could from the shore, it's best to do it during sunset. The sky is so clear and the water is just calf deep. You could also enjoy the water by renting a banca, a kayak or a 6 seater manual boat, all these for really cheap prices. The rooms are clean and spacious. But the water in the toilet needs to be improved. And the most special thing about Matabungkay Beach Resort is their staff. Everyone is just so friendly and accommodating. We noticed they were undermanned but we didn't feel any hostility or tiresomeness from the employees. Best service anyone could ask for! We plan to go back with more family members and try their Suites. See you!
