Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It is my family's 2nd visit and a first one to try the day tour option. We noticed the good improvement in the availability and maintenance of the common use showers, toilets and changing rooms since our visit in Dec. 2018! The beaches and pools are kept clean and well maintained. There are watchful life guards and attentive / friendly staff. Good job! Also appreciated the more conscious effort to be eco-friendly. I hope all guests contribute to these efforts.

Since we went in January, we got the off-peak entrance price of PHP 450 per adult and PHP 360 with senior citizen discount. Bring your own towel. Renting a beach towel is another PHP 50.

They charge corkage for bringing in or cooking food. I reduced 1 star and only gave 4 start due to price of food in the restaurant. Hope management finds a way to make ordering food more affordable as the day tour / rental rates are high already. Most beach outings involve more than 5 people so the cost can add up if you want to encourage guests to order from your restaurant.

We also paid PHP 1,100 additional to rent an open hut for the day. This is optional so guests can just stay under a tree with their own mat. However with the heat and having senior citizens in our group, we needed the comforts of a hut. While the rental price for a day is steep , it is spacious (can hold 15 people, 10 very comfortably). I liked that it was well equipped with a ceiling fan, sink for washing, an extra outlet for plugging appliances/ phones , small fire grill (bring your own supplies) and garbage bins.

The gardens are wonderful for walking and taking pictures. Security is good. There is a shuttle if you need transportation within the grounds (waiting time). Also lots of activities (additional fee) to keep groups with various age and interests happy.

Glad that Stilts continues to improve its service and facilities and is accessible to day trips in Manila!

When I first visited this place during our company outing in 2017, I promised myself that I would bring my family here someday. This year, that promise was fulfilled. My kids loved the huge, clean pools with water that didn't hurt their eyes, the clean beach, and the well-maintained playground. I love the clean rooms, the super-friendly staff, the picturesque flower shrubs everywhere, the water containers in the rooms, the outdoor towel racks and beach chairs, the souvenir shops where the merchandise are not overpriced, and the (also picturesque) parking lot very near the beach houses. We will definitely come back, by next year if not sooner!

I chose this beach resort to celebrate my birthday with my family. We all enjoyed it! The staff are very friendly and helpful since my first contact with them by e-mail until the check out.

The whole place is very clean and well maintained. We loved the flowers, plants and trees all over the property. The gardeners are doing a very good job. The gardens are really nice.

We stayed in one of the floating cottages (Inspiration), which is really nice as all of them got access to the shallow waters. The sunset view and the sea breeze are amazing! The rooms and toilets are very clean too. However, some of the parts of the sink are already rusty and needs to be replaced. One thing I also did not like about the floating cottage is the steep stairs. Anybody, regardless of age, can fall from it as it is too steep. So be very extra careful.

The other cottages by the shore are also nice as you have a direct access to the sandy shore. Behind the cottages is the driveway though.

They initially offered me the Destiny cottage but good thing I did not take it as it is too far from the main facilities. They have a service vehicle though. This is secluded hence you have privacy though.

The tree houses looks really nice but it may not be for those who are scared of heights.

The beach is actually nice and there are also huts around the area. The waters are very shallow though hence you cannot swim. It is nice to walk around especially on low tide as you can find a lot of starfishes. Good thing they have two pools.

The breakfast buffet is good and are almost different each day. The portions are really big! We ordered a lot on our first lunch and there are a lot of leftovers. But they told us that they can keep it for us and they will serve it again for dinner. I find that really nice of them!

There are a lot of things you can do in the beach resort but you can also just relax and chill.

Five Star!
Location, i think 3-1/2 hrs from my place Cainta. A bit far from main gate. Bfore u enter there’s a sign “No reservation, No Entry. Which is good, for the safety of their guests. I’m not sure if they allow walk ins.
We rent the Tree House. I must say i was amazed. I thought it’s just an ordinary room outside, but when u enter inside the room it’s like a hotel type with AC. Good quality from bed, linens, towels, pillows not smelly. There’s enough toiletries. No need to bring water. There’s a water dispenser inside. Hot & Cold. Mini Ref also provided. Huge area but there’s an intercom if u need assistance. Food also deliver from their resto. Welcome drinks when u arrived at the front desk. P5K rate is not bad for our tree house accomodation. With complimentary buffet breakfast.
Food was really really good. Hope they will stay the flavor of their food. I appreciate their food choices. Very homey & comfort food. I really love all of it. Bahay Kubo vegetable a must try. Price also affordable.
Staffs very accommodating & friendly. You will not feel lost there’s plenty of staffs & security around the area. Well maintained.
We only had a problem of their shower head, but they immediately replaced it.
Overall, Pop Up! I will definitely come back.

For I think this is one of the best beach that you can go to neat Manila. Sand and beach is good, the current is also not that strong. They have also have pool. You can enjoy three different beaches if others got crowded. The location is huge by the way. So you won't feel that the resort is being crowded. Staff are also accommodating. The bathroom and the shower rooms are also clean with strong water pressure. There is also a hook and platform where you can put you things and hang your clothes.

We have stayed here several times and they never disappoint. We only stay at the large floating cottages and even if they are not the newest, they are well maintained. More importantly staff is very polite, courteous and gracious from reception to check-out. For the price, I don’t expect gourmet food but maybe it would help if they offered curated meals for a fee, of course. They also don’t overbook the resort and you don’t encounter rude, noisy, boisterous guests doing karaoke all night. That to us, is key. They are also very pet-friendly as long as you are responsible pet owners. Have recommended them multiple times to friends and family and won’t hesitate to come back.

The resort was quite huge and well taken care of. I highly commend the all the staffs of this resort. From the security guards, front desk staff up to the housekeeping personnel were very courteous, had the initiative and outstanding anticipation. I have stayed in many places. No matter how beautiful the place is, the staff makes the stay magnificent.

We were walk-in clients and had 1 cottage left but it was the biggest one. The staff still accommodated us and gave us 1 of the rooms in the cottage.

I fell in love with the place for the second time :) We stayed at the Destiny cottage, farthest from the crowd in Serenity and Harmony beaches. Clean rooms especially the big bathrooms, I love it! There’s free buffet breakfast for the guests. The overall service of the staff are commendable. The sunset is spectacular! I love watching sunsets :) The beach is so clean and the water is sparklingly clear and white sand too :) They have two swimming pools but we only chose to swim in the infinity pool which is bigger (can swim until 7pm). It’s a real haven when you want to escape the hustle of city life and you need to relax/reset. Just make sure to bring your aqua shoes coz there are rocky places on the beach. Second time to visit Stilts and we will definitely go back again and again.

The resort did the mandatory safety protocols of checking of vaccination certs and health declarations prior to check in. Staff were wearing masks all the time too. What bothered us were the trash on the beach (food plastics, laundry soap packs, and the worst - dog poop!). There were flies as well (for reference, there were none last February). During breakfast buffet, server touched the pandesal using her bare hands. We immediately reported these to Management and they contacted us directly and even gave us complimentary items. However, I would still like to document our experience to have a fair expectation of the resort for new visitors.

Hi, Thank you for your feedback. We agree that cleanliness is next to peace of mind, especially during a pandemic. As discussed with you, it is habagat season now. This means that the wind is blowing in trash from other places. We would like to take this opportunity to document the actions taken by Team Stilts, We have adopted an all hands on deck approach since taking care of 24 hectares and the water around the resort requires a lot of teamwork, dedication and effort (especially during habagat season). 1. Our grounds maintenance staff as well as our safety and security staff have redoubled their efforts to keep Harmony Beach, Serenity Beach and Destiny Beach clean. We now have three daily beach cleanups. We also have staff coming in as early as 4 a.m. to check and clean up the beachfronts. 2. Our team has taken the initiative to conduct water patrols. They are now using kayaks to pick up trash from the water. These water patrols have helped prevent trash from reaching the sand. 3. Our other team members (from our Administration staff to our Activities team) have also pitched in to help check and clean the beachfronts and other areas of the resort. 4. We have also reminded all of our staff to follow health and safety protocols for food handling. 5. Our regular contractors have also conducted their pest control and disinfection inspections and procedures. We will continue coordinating with these contractors to ensure the cleanliness of the resort. Thank you so much for recognizing the excellent service of our staff. We always say that they are the heart and soul of the resort. Please rest assured that we will continue to do our best to maintain the cleanliness of the resort and to keep on improving our services. We hope to keep welcoming you back to Stilts.
