I went here 2 years ago pa lol. I wasn’t able to make a review for this one because I have been really busy with my acads. I missed doing looloo reviews!!

Anyway, we availed the day tour and I forgot how much we paid. All I can remember is that we had a discount because my friend knew someone there and that someone even offered us a hotel discount but unfortunately we had already booked a hotel.

I fell in love agad the first time I had set foot here because who would not?! Very picturesque! The different colors and styles of the doors, the church, the bridge, the beach, the houses, everything! We didn’t actually joined the one with the tour guide. We rented a bike and toured on our own because we didn’t want to just follow the tour guide and tell us where we will go next. Plus it’s difficult to take good photos with so many people photobombing unintentionally around us hehe. And hindi nakakapagod kasi we didn’t have to walk to transfer from one place to another. And I enjoyed biking around the heritage resort, feeling nasa music video ganern haha. Lucky us, we spotted a rainbow pa before heading back (see the photo!!).

I want to visit this place again and try staying in their hotel.

so many reasons why i liked it but I will start with why it is not a 5 star for me.
The only fail is food. For dinner, food costs around 400-600 per order in the Filipino restaurant, and food was just basic. The fried chicken saves the weird pakbet. The pancit is good though.
Breakfast was free but we had to pay 300 per head for the kids since we only had 9 free. My eldest ate only a plate of fried rice and scrambled egg, while the 3 yr old ate only pansit. so paying 600 for a 100 pesos worth of food was sad...

now on to the good things...
- beach was great. fine sand and clean shore
- free walking tour with cold towel after the tour. tour was impressive
- free welcome drinks of sampaloc juice
- free jeepney ride and train ride
- very impressive and instagrammable location. it's all about the details- houses were grand, area was spacious. there was also pockets of sculptures here. There about Filipino culture, like lola basyang, kids playing luksong baka and palo sebo.

over-all, it was a memorable experience!!

This is where my hubby and I celebrated our anniversary last year. It was a good experience like we went back to spanish era. It was a bit pricey esp the restos inside but it is highly recommended for a visit if you want something historical and different for a vacay. I am glad they were able to restore and preserve the historical houses. They also have a tour which gives everyone a chance to really have an idea of the story of each houses and history. Will definitely be back and see more historical houses they restored and build.

10024Dito sa isang baryo sa bayan ng Bataan
Tara na't maglakbay sa ating nakaraan
Maraming alala ng ating mga kabataan
Samahan mo ako at ating puntahan

127800 Ang Las Casas Filipinas ay isang malaking museo
Na kung saan maraming kakaibang bahay dito
Apat na daang ektaryang sumisimbolo
Sa buhay ng mga nakaraang Pilipino

128690 Kung mahilig ka sa ating kasaysayan at kultura
Mayroon silang pagtuturo patungkol sa pamana
Ihanda ang sarili sa paglalakbay ng mga paa
Sapagkat umaabot ito ng dalawang oras o higit pa

127968 Kung gusto mo naman maranasan ang saglit na pagtira
Meron silang paupahang mga kwarto at Casa
Ang bayad dito ay bahagyang maharlika
Pero sulit naman kung iyong isusuma

⛱ Kami ay tumuloy sa isang silid sa Paseo de Escolta
Sobrang laki ng kwarto para sa aming barkada
Mayroong ditong tatlong malalaking kama
At saka dalawang kasilyas, telebisyon, at sala

128131 Tuwing hapon meron silang presentasyon
Mga kakaibang pagtatanghal ng bawat nasyon
Saya at kanta mula Mindanao, Bisayas, at Luzon
Sinariwa rin dito ang mga laro ng ating kahapon

128087Dalhin ang lahat ng kasuotang maganda
Sabayan din ng mga larawang kuha ng kamera
Sulit ang paglalakad at pagpostura
Dahil ang Las Casas ay ubod ng ganda

128166 Mayroon din ditong dagat at batis
Ang tubig dito ay ubod ng lamig
Huwag kang mag alala at konting tiis
O pwede ka ring tumambay kung iyong ninanais

127837 Sa loob ng Las Casas ay may masarap na kainan
Mayroong minindalan o kaya pananghalian
Huwag lang magugulat dahil ito'y may kamahalan
Pero sobrang sulit naman kung iyong titikman

128149 Lubha akong sumaya pagkatapos ng aking pagbisita
Walang hanggang tuwa ang aking nadarama
Dito sa Las Casas ay sadyang kahali halina
Tara na't ikaw rin ay magpunta.

The place was picturesque. No questions about that. Some houses or buildings are still under construction. There's beach area but during our visit, the current's too strong it's not possible to swim. We ended up at their man made pool which was supposed to be for kids but still enjoyed it. Our room was big. It can fit up to 4 adults. There's cable TV, bathtub and mini fridge. What's bad about it was the customer service. It was so bad they won't attend to your needs at all. Front Desk won't even accept calls, there's no towels in our room. No slippers and lack of toiletries. Even the registration was manual. That's how bad it was. Complimentary breakfast was ok.

One thing is for sure: The place is super instagrammable. Hahaha!

The place is located at Bagac, Bataan, 3-4 hours away from Manila. A regular day tour costs 1,500.00 which includes the entrance, vicinity map, a guided tour, cold towel and bottled drinks. Senior citizens are discounted, just present their ID cards and they will give you the refund before leaving the place.

My family and I went to a day trip to Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar last January 2 as our first lakwatsa for 2017. 128514

Its main attractions are the old houses built from 17th to 19th century that were carefully dismatled from their original sites, numbered each piece and travelled to a 100-acre beach and mountainside property where they were reassembled, piece by piece. It's so amazing how they restores old houses from across the country. Some of them were replicas, but most are original houses came from different parts of the country. The houses were named after the places where they came from such as Casa Quiapo, Casa Binondo, Casa Cagayan, etc.

There is also walking tours that lasted for 1 and a half hours. I enjoyed this because I've learned a lot! I suddenly missed my Philippine History. Haha! Our tour was scheduled at 10:30 AM but good thing the weather cooperates and it was not so humid that time. If you're planning to visit here, this is the right time. Avoid going here on April-June, as much as possible. It's so hard to walk around the area for 2 hours under the sun! But don't worry because there are cars, jeepneys, mini train and kalesa that rounds continuously and can even drop you up to the parking area. The guided will tell the origin, brief history and even controversies of each house. It was very informative and you will really learn so much about the history of the Philippines.

You can stay here overnight but it's better to book in advance. Room rates starts from 5,000-150,000 pesos. Yes, 150,000.00 pesos. Hahaha! The guide told us that it's expensive because some of the things inside the room are Hermes. Sosyal. Haha!

FOOD- you can have lunch inside the resort. The food were quite expensive but it's worth the price. We ordered Crispy Pata, Sinigang na Baboy and Chopseuy. We paid less than 2,000 pesos. It has big servings that these were actually shared by 6 pax.

There are actually 6 restaurants in this place and some of which offer Filipino-Spanish cuisine and authentic Italian cuisine. The interiors are so beautiful that will instantly give you an impression that foods are expensive. 128514

OVERALL: I love the concept of the place. It's a bit pricey but the experience was great. My lolas really enjoyed this place because they felt that they were transported back in time. Haha! Super relate sila guys. Hahaha!

I advice you to wear slippers or sandals because there are times that you need to take off your shoes before getting inside the house.

Bring umbrella, hat, fan, put sunblock or anything that can protect you from the sun.

Wear comfortable clothes.

Will I come back? YES.
Will I recommend this place? Definitely, YES.

Checking another one off my bucketlist last 2016...

My fiance and I were able to visit the famed Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar in Bagac, Bataan... Owned by architect Gerry Acuzar (developer of the Philippine Arena), it takes you back to 18th century Philippines without having to jump into a time machine...

Having been creeped out by the thought of 18th century ghosts--yung naka-Filipiniana pa128123128064-- we opted for the day tour option for our quick getaway. The place has guided tours almost hourly, so no need for reservations...

The 400-hectare heritage park boasts of restaurants, a swimming pool, calesa rides, and beach access for the visitors... But it is the beautifully restored historical stone houses that people from all over marvel at...

These abandoned bahay na bato from Ilocos to Nueva Ecija to Bulacan were painstakingly transported from their previous locations to Bataan. They are rebuilt and restored onsite. These were transferred one by one, until the collection grew and now spans from villa to hotel in the resort...

Day trips include a welcome drink, a guided walking tour, a vicinity map, access to the beach, and a cold towel. You can opt to eat in the buffet or have a set meal or to just join the tour... NOTE: Bring water!!! Wear comfy shoes!!! Apply sunscreen!!! Sport sunglasses!!! Bring power banks and camera paraphernalia!!! Get ready to act and pose because you need it... It's so hot during the tour, even early in the morning...

You will be guided to the houses that come straight from a bygone era. I was definitely amazed at the workmanship involved in rebuilding the houses from ground up-- all the while making sure you maintain the original appearance and individuality of each house... It is hard to pick a favorite because of the unique character of each building... Loved seeing where they shot scenes for Heneral Luna though...

Unfortunately, the Italian restaurant was closed during our visit due to a problem with their oven... I would have wanted to try the pizza. I didn't enjoy the churros we tried at their Spanish restaurant...🤗 Food is expensive, but you expect that from any resort...

Half a day isn't enough to explore the park!!! I really do want to come back for a more in-depth look around... Still not keen on staying overnight at the hotel though...128123

Being so close to Manila, it is a great weekend getaway for city dwellers... I also think it's a great place to take your balikbayan family and friends to... 128077🏻

Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar or Houses of the Philippines by Acuzar is a heritage and convention center located in Bagac, Bataan. This heritage resort by the sea is a project of Jerry Acuzar, a businessman with a passion for history and architecture. The place transports you back to 18th century Philippines. The houses were reconstructed from pieces to pieces, some of the houses are just replicas while others are constructed using the original materials of the houses from different parts of the country. Each house was named from place where the house originated.

***How to go to Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar
Bagac Bataan is 3 to 4 hours away from Manila, via public transportation, you can take a bus bound to Balanga City. From Balanga City, you can take a mini-bus or a shuttle going to Bagac town. From Bagac, you could take a tricycle that will bring you directly to the resort.

Via private transportation, you will drive to the North Luzon Expressway or via Subic-Clark-Tarlac expressway. In NLEX, you will exit via San Fernando and take the westbound side of the Gapan-Olangpo road. Upon reaching Dinalupihan, turn left to Roman Superhigway. When you are in Balanga City, turn right to JJ Linao National Road until you reach the resort.

Via SCTEX, you may exit via Dinalupihan, turn right to Roman Superhighway and turn right to JJ Linao National Road.

Tip: Go to the place as early as possible to avoid the volume of people and to have enough time to explore the place and go swimming to the beach or swimming pool

***Entrance Fee to the resort
Day tour cost 999 pesos per person which includes entrance fee and free use of the beach area and swimming pool, welcome drink, guided tour, vicinity map and cold towel. Their 1,699 package includes a set meal while their 1,899 package includes a buffet lunch.

Tip: Get the 999 pesos package and take your lunch to any available restaurant inside the resort. You can save more money if you will take your lunch outside.

***Heritage Tours
The published guides tour is from 30 minutes to 1 hour but based from my experience, we finish the tour in 2 hours. Guided tours are from 830am to 430pm.

Wear comfortable shoes or flip flop because you will do a lot of walking. Some houses will require you to remove your shoes.
Wear comfortable or dri-fit clothes.
Wear a cap/hat or bring umbrella for your sun/rain protection.
Bring water to keep you hydrated.

***Restaurants inside the resort
Cafe Marivent - located at Hotel de Oriente and offers Filipino-Spanish food. I ate my lunch here buffer type, they have a limited choices for the viand and dessert but their pork and tofu is the best I've tasted in my life (haha). The restaurant is open until 10pm.

La Bella Teodora - located at Casa Biñan and offers authentic Italian cusine. The restaurant is open from 11am to 2pm and 6pm to 10pm.

Cafe Del Rio - a snack bar located at Casa Sta Rita in Plaza Marcelino. This is open until 10pm.

La Parilla - located at Casa Jaen 1 and open until 10pm

La Panaderia - located at Paseo de Escolta and offers bakery goods until 6pm.

***Other Matters and Trivias

🏚 Well, how to begin describing the place… Have you guys watched the HBO series Westworld? That’s exactly how we felt, except that the setting is not a Western Cowboy style, but in a Heritage Amusement Park. Upon entering, you will be greeted by a man wearing a guardia civil costume. Their staff are all wearing baro’t saya. And you will stay in an old house...

128663 To arrive there, we basically just Wazed ourselves of (thank God for technology no?). I don’t know if you can take a public transportation to arrive there. Perhaps a bus from Manila to Bataan then a tricycle? It’s relatively easy to find.

128184 Las Casas de Acuzar is a “project” of Mr. Jerry Acuzar of the New San Jose Builders in which he buys old house around the country and place them in his property at Bagac, Bataan. The whole area is picturesque and really Instagram worthy – each house is restored beautifully, and the place has a backdrop of both the mountains and the sea.

127969 The room we stayed is located in an old house with five rooms (four at the second floor, one at the first floor). We stayed in a room with a beautiful view of the casas and their man-made Venice-type canal. The room has one queen size bed, a cable TV, provisions for coffee and tea, mini-ref, small table for two. The bathroom looks like another room in itself with a bathtub, toilet and bidet, and shower. The hot and cold water on the faucets are also working yay!.To be honest, I wasn’t able to sleep well (or at all) that night because I never expected that it would creep me out to stay in an old house of another person that I don’t even know haha.

9962️ We joined the “Heritage Tour” which is centered on really trivial matters, such as a lovestory or the heartbreak between the owners, or how much would it cost to rent the house (oh they will tell you how much each house would cost to rent).

🛠 However, I enjoyed the “Workshop Tour”. Maybe because it is only me and Oliver on that tour so it seemed private, and also because this tour shows the guests how they recreate parts of the houses. We went outside the park itself, to see how they are making their own bricks, tiles, even sculptures and mosaics. Instead of buying the construction/reconstruction materials, they just make it there. Unreal. I liked this a lot though, and I had the chance to speak with the people who are making this place seem real.

127983 We also asked for the “Hotel de Oriente Tour” but you have to pay an additional 150 (stay-in) / 200 (daytrip) per person to avail of it. Hotel de Oriente used to be in Binondo but it burned down, and Las Casas recreated it from old maps and plans. This was where APEC 2015 was held. It’s really an impressive building, and even more grandiose on the inside. Greeting you is a wood mosaic of Luna’s Spolarium, using the natural colors of wood as shading. The stairs even have intricately carved wood in it.

127769 At night, the area is really deserted. Maybe because we booked a weekday trip. We found ourselves walking alone around 9pm and it’s really creepy. There was no other source of light except for the dim streetlamps.

‼️ Some tips ‼️

128262 To maximize your stay, be sure to join all the tours (Heritage and Workshop Tour). There is also another one, the Hotel de Oriente Tour, but you have to pay an additional 150 (stay-in) / 200 (daytrip) per person to avail of it. Always ask questions!

128262 Be sure to hydrate yourself as it is very hot in the area. Imagine being surrounded by cobble stones and the sea with minimal shade. On that note, don’t forget to apply sunscreen.

128261 There are other things to do in Las Casas, free for guests, such as swimming in the beach or in the pool, playing boardgames, billards etc. There are also other things you can do, but with exorbitant charges such as riding a balsa/raft/boat in the “Estero de Binondo”, breakfast at a balsa on a beach (with a butler lol), and of course, spa treatments.

128262 In my opinion, it is better to do an overnight trip instead of a daytrip. It seems more expensive at first, but if you really want to squeeze out the amenities of the resort (and to have a place to rest during the peak hours of the sun), better spend more time there.

The place is rich in Filipino heritage.

What I liked about this place apart from the picturesque scenery is the accommodation.

Our room was huge! The bathroom was super clean, the fixtures worked and the water pressure is strong so it was super relaxing to shower (their hot & cold worked). They have a bathtub but I didn't try.

The bed is comfortable, I slept for 8 hours straight.

I felt relaxed and rejuvenated when I woke up.

The food was okay. The was not, we didn't swim. But I really didn't care. Haha!

It is very rare for me to see an awesome structure that is reminiscent of Spanish heritage. Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar will bring you back to 18th century of the Philippines' magnificence. Every corner of this place is 'instagrammable' so hurry and book this place to your calendar as your next destination.

So my aunt from US just flew back here. We toured her around the metro and now we went out of town. The whole fam is present.

It was two to four hours drive to Bataan. We stopped over for chips and a little stretching. We arrived at lunch time. A little late, we still enjoyed our lunch tho everything was on the salty side. We ordered kare-kare, pancit, pinakbet. We were also serenaded by musicians. They were great! We even requested for a new song and they know it. Hehe. After our lunch, we roam around and took some photos before our tour starts. We went to one of the casas for viewing. It has Pilipinong laro like sungka, boardgames, billiards, chinese garter, and all sorts of pampalibang every afternoon. You could also have refreshments like sago't gulaman. Rest and siesta before having the tour. They will also give you wet towels for your sticky skin due to hot weather. Hehehe!

The tour took more likely as half day. We were provided with a tour guide who tells us about each casas' history, where it's name came from and old terms for household furnitures, and areas.

It was fun! Everything was picture perfect! The casas were simply beautiful! They were all different. Some were very old, most of it were restored, and all have their own memories. The tour was tiring. We went to ten or more casas. But it was worth it. All of us had fun and learned something new from the old. They also have rooms for occupancy. You could also have reservation for your wedding.

Going back in time, Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar is the perfect place to nurse that nostalgia.

It has the collection of most Spanish-Philippine houses that greatly contribute to our country's history. The houses are delicately dismantled, transferred and reassembled to preserve its history and was safe-keep to this heritage, giving us a glimpse of the past.

Since it was an impromtu get away weekend, my friend and I took advantage of the day tour for 1k. It consist of welcome drinks, group tour and a refreshing towelette.

The tour runs around an hour and a half led by a guide. They let you enter most of the houses however, they will ask you to remove your shoes.
*Tip of advice, wear something comfy, shoes that's easy to remove and bring water. It's also best to start your tour early because it gets really hot during noontime.

It's pretty expensive to dine in Las Casas. I remember we had pork sisig for P390, calamares for P390 and a cup of rice cost P50. The place is secluded so there is no other restaurants nearby. I suggest you eat before going there and bring snacks to fuel you up.

The place is instagram worthy all over! I must say we spent most of our time taking pictures. Every corner is perfect to take that OOTD. It's beautiful, nostalgic and serene. Recommended for pre-nups and weddings.

I'll definitely go back to this place. It refreshing to revisit our country's past and inspiring to witness people dedicated to preserve it's pride. If you do have the time and is looking for a different weekend getaway, then this place is a choice for you. 128522

I cant explain in words how beautiful and majestic this place is. 128525 but ill try 128514

It takes you back to 18th-century Philippines in a twinkle of an eye. It is a fine exhibit of filipino craftsmanship, bringing houses of ancient era from different parts of the country to one place.

Every house has a story which will make every entry really special. Its like traveling back in time, and having the feel of how its like before, its like being a guest to homes from the past. As respect to the past owners, everyone should take off their shoes before entering. I even experienced being an "aliping sagigilid" in one of the house by only being able to pass along the side. 128514

All of the houses were blessed so no reason to be scared although some houses are really creepy specially the most sinful house that used to be an abortion/live show place in taft 128560

From brick houses to wooden stilts to grand mansions. Every structure is being maintained. and to add up to the ambiance, a long stretch of beach, an infinity pool, a backdrop of majestic mountains, rice fields, and a running river that flows to the sea.

We went here during a monsoon but that didnt stop us from touring around. We were all wet, the raincoats were not able to keep us dry so we took them off anyway 128514

I will definitely come back here during summer, how can you not love this picturesque place?
