Summer is just a few months away and we know that some of us are already searching and planning where to go and spend this season with family and friends.
Here in this blog, we will share with you 10 things about this beach resort in San Felipe, Zambales, which is Kwentong Dagat.
WATCH OUR VLOG HERE:
1. NO BOAT RIDE NEEDED
One factor that people consider when hitting the beach is less hassle. We all know that some of the beaches here in our country require boat transfer. But here in Kwentong Dagat, you don’t need it! Plus, it’s also 3-4 hours away from Manila.
The resort is not beachfront but the beach is only a minute walk from the resort.
2. UNIQUE ACCOMMODATION EXPERIENCE
Do you experience staying in a cabin room? Here in Kwentong Dagat, you can experience it! Note that all rooms are fully air-conditioned. Cabin rooms can accommodate 4-6 pax.
One thing that we noticed in Cabin rooms, there are no private bathrooms. But there’s a common bathroom in the resort.
That’s why we decided to stay in one of their newest rooms, which is the Abaca rooms.
This room is perfect for those who want more privacy because it has its own private bathrooms. Abaca rooms are good for 2-4 pax.
Plus, the murals of the room are so pretty. Each room has its own design of murals and in our rooms, the design is leaves. The bathroom is so extra. Look at what’s inside in the bathroom.
For the updated rates as of 2020, kindly see the following photos:
UPDATE AS OF DECEMBER 2021
They have new rooms, which is the Nipa Cabin Deluxe, that is good for 6 persons and has its own bathrooms. Security deposit costs 1,500 PHP and is refundable upon checkout.
3. IT HAS COMPLIMENTARY BREAKFAST
Once you’re checked in, you are entitled to have a complimentary breakfast. Though the breakfast is not that heavy because it just includes bread and coffee.
Before we got our free breakfast, Kuya who screamed “TAHO” woke us up. Note that one TAHO costs 25 PHP each. LOL. To help lessen the plastic, kindly use the mug at the resort when buying Taho.
4. THEY SERVE VEGAN MEALS
It’s the first time that we encountered a resort that serves Vegan meals. Not a fan of veggies but this time, I gave it a try. And it was good! Plus, the food they serve doesn’t look Vegan.
Our favorites were Bicol Express, Afritada, and Humba! Vegan meals cost 275 PHP per meal.
Don’t worry, you can also bring your own food inside the resort. There’s no corkage fee except for alcoholic drinks. They charge 1,000 PHP for drinks. You can also cook your own food in the resort.
UPDATE AS OF DECEMBER 2021
The resort has now its own restaurant and bar inside! But as of this writing, it is still not yet finish but guests can dine in here.
5. THEY ARE ECO-FRIENDLY AND PET-FRIENDLY
We are sure pet lovers will love this resort. Why? You can bring your own pets here. There are also a lot of pets in the resort, such as dogs and cats. What we also liked about the resort is they are promoting to not use plastics.
Guests are allowed to bring 1 pet per room. If you wish to bring more, they have an additional fee of 300 PHP/pet. The maximum number of pets per room is 3 pets.
6. PERFECT PLACE TO UNWIND
The whole resort is peaceful. If you want some adventure, you can go surfing. Aside from it, you can also do Yoga here in Kwentong Dagat. The first photo is where they held the Yoga sessions.
You can also celebrate your wedding here. When we went there, some of the guests were there for their Pre-Nups. You can also do your wedding here. How about a beach wedding?! G!
7. PERFECT SPOT FOR SUNSETS
We were amazed! This resort has a perfect spot for sunset! Look at some of our shots during the sunset.

One thing we noticed too was the beach is clean. They also have garbage cans that have Biodegradable and Nonbiodegradable labels.
