this place was great. we arrived by banka direct from batangas pier and were straight at the exotic styled bar for a cold drink and into conversation with the local characters who were over from white beach chilling out at the more serene aninuan beach.
this place dispelled all the fears i had had about puerto galera only being a place for divers and gogo bars. it was more like being on a beach in thailand. the weather was perfect and walking up and down the white sand beach past don jaime ayala's beautiful house was a great way to start the day.
food was a bit average but definitly eatable - i hear that they are redoing the restaurant and will have a reopen of that which is good news.
anyway it was the people that made the trip - the owner and staff were really hospitable and after a couple of days really felt like i had been a regular for years
great for one - two nights break from mania - without having to FLY anywhere!

It was our first time at SABR and immediately felt at home with the relaxed atmosphere and "right on the beach" location. The porters and jeepney driver were immediately visible as we got off the boat. Les did a great job in welcoming us to the resort and suggested a room size that was more fitting for me, my husband, and son. Too bad none of the newer rooms were available -- will try them the next time. Room we had was a little more rustic and would have preferred a bigger bathroom and shower. Sheets were always clean and room refreshed daily. Overall okay since we intended to spend more time outside than in anyway. Lexy was the ultimate hostess by taking note of her guests needs -- even the youngest ones -- made sure my son had a special plate of sliced cheese which he loves. I had a craving for green mangoes and she had them available by the time I ordered my next meal. Great resort for families. Had lots of sand toys for kids although playing by the beach was more than enough fun for my 2 year old son. Location is far away enough from the crowd yet close enough to other areas for exploration. Food selection was sufficient and enjoyed trying a variety of dishes. Tried to hike to the waterfall but never found it so will hire a guide next time. Massage on the beach was VERY relaxing! Bar location was very convenient. I have worked for the Hotel/Resort Sales industry in the US for the past 14 years and have seen and experienced all levels of service. In my opinion, SABR staff and management TRULY understand what delivering Quality Service means. Hated to leave so will definitely return!

We stayed @ SABR for a weekend with the company of family and friends that I shall proclaim "The best collection of wonderful people put together in one place" ... and such the perfect place Sunset at Aninuan Beach Resort was. The open hearted welcome we received from our host Ms. Lexy to the genuine smiles while being consistently served by her staff from Les, Matet , Aiza and everybody.
I have been back here in California for more than a week now and my fiance back in the UAE but we still go to bed at night wishing were back at SABR when we open our eyes in the morning...The ever different view of the sunset everyday the peaceful sound of the ocean, the classy relaxing ambience of the resort , the clean and spacious accomodations together with the beautiful people we met (little baby bella) made our vacation truly unforgettable.

We've been to Aninuan Beach many times before it was taken over and rebuilt by its new owner.
In the 'old days' it was a charming and secluded little resort ... but absolutely great to hang out and extremely romantic.
These days it is just another 'boutique-hotel' , meaning: you have places like that all over the world. It is nothing special anymore.

The rates are simply ridiculous. Folks from abroad might think 100 USD is cheap ... but living in the Philippines it is extremely expensive.
It is a good place if you live in Manila, you want to get out for a long week-end.... and you have a lot of money.

If you have kids and you gotta economize I suggest you go to the resort next door .... it is clean, has wonderful family-accomodation ... and very reasonable rates.

We were looking for a relaxing weekend getaway from Manila, traveling with two small children (1 and 3 years old) and Sunset at Aninuan Beach Resort exceeded our expectations by a mile! The location was fantastic, very secluded with a private beach and perfect view. All rooms have sea view and come with a balcony.
The resort was very clean and well-maintained. We stayed in the Junior Suite, which was kindly offered to us by the incredible hospitable owner of the resort Ms. Lexy herself. We met her on the boat to the resort and she offered us the room at a special discounted rate, since we had two small children. The room was very spacious and came with an extra bed and a pull-out mattress as well as with cable tv and a huge terrace and a bathroom. The kids had enough space to move around and had a great time.
The staff of the resort is very child-friendly and service-oriented. Also, the food is excellent with a great selection of western and Filipino food.
We can highly recommend this secluded, friendly and very well maintained hotel and will surely come back soon!
