aja hi.. nice blog! may i just ask u if der are any rules in the resort wherein guests are required to wear bathing suits? thanks!
May 19, 2009, 11:57 pm
Marcel Hi Aja. Yes there is. You'll need to wear proper swimming attire. But you can always wear those bathing shirts that cover the whole body. I even saw long sleeved bathing shirts. And the lifeguards are very active on duty.

madz Is it worth the 4 hours travel?
May 26, 2009, 4:00 pm
Marcel Actually, that 4 hours include 2 hours stopover. It really isn't that far, if there is no traffic, you could get there in an hour and a half.
Yeah, definitely worth the travel, very relaxing place.

Lurker Hello Marcel! Keep writing. We missed your blog. Club Balai Isabel looks fantastic. What do you think of the service?
June 12, 2009, 1:19 pm
Marcel Hey Lurker! Nope, not too fond of the service. We had a few bad experiences with the service while we were there. It could be just bad luck. Although, everything else is nice.

Mavic Your pictures are very nice! My family (with 3 kids) are going to Balai Isabel to celebrate New Year's day there. However, I saw the bad reviews on TripAdvisor....now I'm scared. As a mom, would you recommend this place? I'd appreciate your advise. Thanks

sha we're going there too this january but the tripadvsor reviews sort of discouraged me. Is the place clean and well maintained? My mom has some cleanliness issues
December 29, 2009, 11:37 pm
Marcel Hi Sha. Yes, the place is clean and the rooms are still new. Although we had a small problem about insects inside the room but nothing to be discouraged about. Place is very well maintained and there are a lot of things you can do there. Post your experience here when you get back from your vacation. Thanks!!!

Isabel Your photos are great! What can you do in Balai Isabel?

Kristine Hi Marcel!
Thanks so much for your wonderful pictures of the place. We've been overhauling our service and amenities lately, and we feel that it's going well. We'd like to invite you to come back soon! By the end of October, we'll have a new chapel and a bigger pool as well.
As for things to do around the resort, there's always kayaking, or learning to sail with the Taal Yacht Club, beach volleyball, basketball, billiards, karaoke and such. We're working on more activities soon, so we are quite open to suggestion.
I hope you don't mind me replying to your blog, we're trying to monitor customer satisfaction online and always always trying to improve our service. You have absolutely beautiful pictures, and I'd like to invite you to join our Photo Contest. More details on http://balaiisabel.tumblr.com or visit facebook.com/ClubBalaiIsabel for updates.

Marcel Hi Kristine!
I don't mind at all! In fact, I appreciate your reply.
Since you are asking for suggestions, I would like to suggest adding a Ping pong table to the resort. haha!
Yes, I will join the contest, I just hope my pictures are good enough or I just hope I have enough facebook friends. Hehe.

how's the rate naman ng restaurant nila
September 7, 2011, 3:11 am
Marcel Hi Xyra. Well, it's not over-priced if that's what you're asking. It's just that, I'm not too keen with the service. Well, at least at that time. I don't know nowadays, maybe the personnel are more trained. The food is just alright, typical filipino.

Charlie Hi Marcel,
