It was the perfect family getaway!!! We made the right decision of choosing Pico Sands Hotel for our family vacation this semestral break.

Nestled along the beautiful tropical paradise of Pico De Loro Cove in Nasugbu Batangas, Pico Sands Hotel gave us a breeze of fresh air and scenic view of the lush mountains. As we enter the hotel lobby, we were greeted by welcome smile from the staff and complimentary calamansi drinks. The staff are warm, helpful and knowledgeable. They gave recommendation on activities within the resort.

After our quick check in, we were strucked by the beauty and cleanliness of our deluxe mountain view room. The toilet was modern, clean and well maintained as well.

As we are excited to stroll around, we went down right away to the hotel lobby and rode the complimentary shuttle. It gave us a quick view of the resort and its recreational facilities.

The hotel is adequately equipped with facilities which catered to both young and old alike. There is a minimal fee that applies to some facilities like bowling, billiards, kids play area etc.

My mother in law had the most relaxing experience at Rain, The Spa. The massage lasted for 90 minutes and gave a soothing remedy to her tired body.

My husband decided to spend time at the Lagoa restaurant. He ordered their featured appetizers - fish and chips and assorted sausages. Both dishes came with complimentary bottle of beer for their Octoberfest Halloween promo. While food taste is on the average, servings are good for 2 persons which is worth your money. He enjoyed his appetizers while drinking cold bottles of beer with a picturesque view of the infinity pool.

My morning was spent at the beautiful Pico Beach, my favorite place in the resort. Imagine this - relaxing under the sun, getting carried away with the soothing waves and magnificent view of the blue skies while sipping a tall glass of fresh mango shake! Literally, I spend several hours in this wonderful place!

My 6 year old daughter hurriedly changed into her swimsuit and went straight to the swimming pool. The resort boosts of a variety of pools - infinity, bubble, slide and pool with falls. The swimming area was perfectly designed to suit the needs of guests of all ages. There were swimming beds situated in the middle pool so even babies get to have their share of water fun. Life guards are always on-the-look out for the guests in the pool.

My 1 year old baby boy managed to spend 2 hours in the playroom called Club Pico. Its an indoor play area for kids aged 6 and below. Its fully equipped with jump trampoline, slide for toddlers and kids, pool of colorful balls and crafts/coloring area. Both my kids had fond memories of their playful experience.

I could go on and on sharing our wonderful experience that is truly unique and memorable at Pico Sands Hotel. Its a beach vacation worth remembering! Definitely worth 5 stars!1280771108811088110881108811088

Went here on a summer weekend so that must be the reason why I didn't enjoy this place that much. The place is jam-packed. Good thing they have a complimentary breakfast buffet which was very delicious-- it was the redeeming factor of the trip. :)

If ever I would go back to this place-- I would most likely visit during off peak season and I might probably look for condo unit owners who are renting out their place. I think this option will be cheaper than checking in at their hotel.

Weekdays are best at Pico. Loved the hotel because the function rooms have great views so you don't feel like you are confined in a room. Ran a team building session here and it allowed me time with my son...

The hotel has Club Pico for kids. My son and I enjoyed the tunnels, trampoline, watching movies, bouncy balls...- and he enjoyed the slides and rocker alligators/horses/fish... :)

Got to play billiards and bowling. Awesome facilities and staff were all very helpful...receptionist (Ivanne) very very nice and helped explain a number of things to get us warmed up to the place.

There's horseback/pony rides, indoor full courts for basketball, volleyball, badminton... They've got several pools from 2 feet to about 5 feet for adults... The 2-foot deep pool helped my son have more fun. :)

The view from the room shows the lake with fountains. Relaxing view.

The room I got was okay. King-sized bed... Ample space, cabinets, and good-sized bathroom. Minor turn-off is the drainage system in the bathroom...we went back to our room and it was wreaking...! But eventually dissipated after we took our baths, post our beach visit.

Papaya beach was great! Calm waters.. Cool enough but not too cold. Hot day this past Friday... My son really enjoyed our swim at the beach. We also got to make sandcastles... There were free sun beds under white giant umbrellas for people to park their things under...cabanas are first come-first serve. The beach club is the only one that is members' only...

I was there 2 days,1 night, but had a great time. Late check out possible but not on weekends because it is so full on weekends. Rate is a little over 6k for the room I got inclusive of buffet breakfast for two persons.

The gym is free!!!

On a recent weekend getaway, a few of my friends and I drove up to Batangas for an over night stay at Hamilo coast - Pico de Loro. We checked into the Pico Sands hotel, located inside the resort and conveniently located between the country club where most of the facilities are located and the beach club where we planned to spend most of our time here.

I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel. It was simple but clean and service was excellent. As soon as we entered the lobby, we were served with welcome drinks. The receptionist was friendly and efficient. We were all checked in and ready for the beach in no time!

The room was spacious. We were in a superior suit with 2 queen beds and we even managed to squeeze in another extra bed in there. As you can tell there were 5 of us girls sharing the room and let me tell you, the bathroom was a wreck upon check out and I pity the cleaning lady who has to deal with it. Haha

There was free wifi offered all through out the hotel. It wasn't the fastest wifi service but I appreciated it nonetheless. There was also cable tv but we didn't make much use of that. We also had a balcony facing the pool & man made lagoon. Beds were comfy and air con was brand new so no problems with the room whatsoever. If you have to be in Pico de Loro, a stay at the Pico Sands is not too shabby, not to shabby at all.

I am here now alone. So forgive my somehow bitter review. Lol!

I learned it from a friend who had their honeymoon here and gave me a free voucher. It supposed to be for me and Clark but ... Nvm! 128540

I decided to go here with friends or family because there's no chance to use it with the real companion of me going here. I was sort of asking them if they wanna go but I got no answer.

This morning I woke up like I want run from the world for a while and have some alone time. I'm not crazy or whatever. 128540128541

Since no one wanted to come with me, I came here all alone. Yeah, ALL ALONE!!! Eh wala eh. Masasayang!!

I have no idea about the place. Didn't expect for anything too. I just want to go away.

As I arrive here, I felt like "very wrong na pumunta magisa kasi puro couple andito" but gorabels na ako. Andito na ako eh.

Wow! I was amazed with the pool. Tho there's no overlooking view. Nakaharang ang mountain. 128532

Facilities and all is good. (Hamilo Coast is owned by sm eh wala na kong tiwala sa gawa ng sm). Infairness to this huh! 128513

The place seems to be just a newly open or sadyang hindi lang talaga siya ganung tinatao pa.

I have a big room. Kasi yung nasa voucher suite room 128532 Ramdam na ramdam ko tuloy na magisa ako. 128541 The bed is too comfy. I don't wanna stand up lol. The bathroom is huge too. Bath tub and shower is exciting. Bubble bath 128703128704

This one is okay if you want to relax and if you want a not too crowded place.

I can't really say anything about other facilities because I won't going out until checking out here. 128541 But let's see tmr.
