CANYON COVE Residential Beach Resort - REVISITED


For quite a long time now, the post on Canyon Cove Residential Beach Resort proved to be one of the most popular posts in this blog. I constantly receive inquiries about the resort, and I apologize for not finding time to address those. So I'd like to do it now. We visited the resort last week to update ourselves on anything new. Apparently, only the rates were changed. The same facilities can be found except for some new added activities like the pedal boat. The day tour costs P500 per pax with P200 consumable for food and drinks. The buffet lunch is priced at P600 and the set meals range from P220 - P350. The set meals still feature the grilled foods like fish (tilapia and bangus), pork chop, barbecue, squid etc. For the buffet lunch, a chicken dish, pork, vegetables, seafood, soup, salad and other cold appetizers, pasta and desserts complete the meal repertoire. Honestly, it didn't impress much. It gave you that feeling of heaviness but incompletely satisfied. After the lunch, I'm craving for more delicious bites, it didn't delight me at all.


The same slow service is noted from the reception desk. I hope they will be able to find a faster, better system to manage all those paper works on issuing receipts and pass. All the more in the set meal area where hungry mouths are impatiently waiting from the queue. All the delays in the issuance of food definitely stirred a lot of complaints. I just couldn't over emphasize the importance of a better preparation and faster service for times like this. A valuable point made by one of the guests made me nod, the resort's management should have at least complemented the "no food allowed" policy by providing foods anytime, on the time it's needed.


If you intend to stay overnight, the minimum rate is P4700 per room per night with free breakfast for two. I still hold the same reservation for staying overnight though, unless you're staying with a lot of friends or barkadas. If there's one thing I'd like to commend the resort with, it's being able to maintain its cleanliness. Most of the facilities were still well kept. Will I go back again next year? Perhaps, yes! At any rate, it still is a nice place to spend summer at.
How to get there: From SLEX, take Sta. Rosa Exit then turn right from Coke tollgate and straight ahead all the way through Tagaytay - Sta. Rosa Highway. Upon passing through Tagaytay, turn right going to Nasugbu (after the archway, Lemery - Nasugbu intersection). Straight ahead, turn right at Balayan - Nasugbu intersection then turn right again at Lian/Calatagan - Nasugbu intersection (Shell Gasoline Station). Continue on until you pass by Jollibee and Nasugbu town proper. Canyon Cove is just a few minutes away from there. Found on the left side of the road after the small bridge.
For further queries:
Far East Road, Piloto, Wawa, Nasugbu, Batangas

Canyon Cove does have nice swimming pools. The beach is short but nice.The hotel is clean and well maintain. What i do not like about the resort are the following: 1. Losing your reservation (which you have made months before) because they have change their computer system? 2. asking us to check in at 7pm because the room we had reserved is being use by the "day tourers" 3. asking us to leave an ID at the guard and another ID with the dive rentals when you gonna rent snorkels and other diving apparatus even if you are in house guest. Are they afraid that you are not going to settle your bills? (they should swipe a blank credit card receipt as security, like what other five stars hotels do) or they are afraid you are not going to return the rented items. BETTER HAVE lots of ID cards with you. In any case, its really an inconvenience to the guests. 4. Accommodating up to 1000 or more day tourers, how can the in house guests enjoy the facilities with that much people in that limited space? I do hope that the management will be able to address these problems. Will i return to Canyon cove? do not know yet.

Hi! My friends & I are planning to go to this resort and probably stay there for a night or two. I'm just wondering if you know anyone who's renting out a condo unit/rooms in this resort. Thank you.

The place is notlike a resort. For me it was like a condo with a pool and a small beachshoreline. It is so hot and cant find trees. The people are not so WARM and FRIENDLY. They are just like robots with 1 question and 1 answer and so DE KAHON. They are not flexible

Why are the rooms avail only from Sunday to Thursday. Its a rip-off to exclude the Friday to Saturday where most people (working people who are the target of the membership) are free to go. I was a member before and that made me feel that the membership was trashy. I never availed of the membership to Canyon Cove again
