Baldwin Cachero & Colleagues

Excellent service and very friendly staff. Could not be better. Exceeded our expectations. Perfect venue for all types of gatherings. 10/10. Our strategic planning would have not been as successful if not for an amazing venue as The Lily. Thank you and 'til next time!   

Hykinel Bon Guarte & Colleagues

Great service. We enjoyed it very much.

Bernadette Blazo & Family

The Lily did not fail us to have a wonderful and memorable Christmas family reunion. The place was great and cozy. Every room was stately designed and decorated. The pool was very inviting and definitely enjoyed by our kids. It was just few steps away from the beach. Although, we haven't tried any water activities available that time but we were satisfied watching the fingerlings swim and were delighted to touch the starfishes near the shore.

This resort doesn't just provide an awesome place but an excellent service as well. They have efficient and trustworthy staff to whom i am very grateful... we were immediately notified when they found a wallet after our check out and was returned to us with no single cent lost. Overall, The Lily deserves more than a five star rate for providing a great place and great service. Highly recommended.

Gold Zaballero & Family

Very efficient! We love everything Grace cooked! :) Very much liked the facilities and the food. Thank you for a most wonderful stay. My 50th birthday with the family was a happy one, thanks in part to your staff (Grace and Allan). We look forward to another visit soon. Sincerely, Gold :)

Yeye Balayan & Family

Grace is so accomodating & always smiling. Place is very very nice. Thanks Ian! <3 <3 <3

Dianne Nicole Guamos & Family

Very courteous and excellent service is observed all the time. I would definitely want to come back. It went far and beyond expectations esp. during the accident on one of our colleagues. The pool was great as it was kept clean always. The beach however was very stony and had a lot of sea urchin. But of course, it' s beyond our control.

Promo Works Inc. & Colleagues

Courteous, on-time, professional. Expectations were exceeded, clean and good facilities. It was a memorable experience that gave the company a much needed break. The stay was very much appreciated and the staff very helpful.

Leni America & Family

It was okay. We had fun. Thank you for accomodating us.

Lei Fresnosa & Family

Accomodating and hospitable. It exceeded my expectation because it has always maintained its ambience. Definitely worthwhile and will keep coming back! we <3 The Lily.

Marivic Gonzales & Family

They were very accommodating and polite. Food was great! The website information was accurate. Very nice place. A home away from home. Would help if there is at least a stronger mobile signal. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We appreciate the ambience & the calmness of the place. This was just what we needed. Will definitely go back!

Marcus Vinuya & Family

Service was superb. Grace and Allan were awesome, accommodating all requests. Extra points for great cooking. The house was beautiful, and very near the beach. Very clean and well-kept. I especially liked the multiple washrooms made available to us in anticipation of a big group. Thank you for accommodating us, albeit short notice. We had a wonderful stay. Your staff are very warm, and great cooks—do give them bonuses. :) Love, the Vinuyas

Hesed Kier dela Pena & Colleagues

Excellent! Place is super nice. Complete with all the basic amenities we need to have a comfortable & superb experience. We really enjoyed our stay at the Lily! It's like stepping into a mini museum. The ambience is worldly. Very cool!

Timothy Cervantes & Friends

The lady who accomodated us was so kind and welcoming. She's witty and cool. Well-met (expectations). Everything was more than what we expected for. We will surely come back. This experience is something to be proud of to share and would surely commend & recommend to our friends. 'Til next time, "The Lily."

John Christopher Bernabe and Colleagues

Very good. Very accomodating. The facilities are clean and organized. Very Instagrammable. Exquisite ambiance. We enjoyed our stay. We'll recommend to our friends. I hope to come back soon. Thank you! :) <3

Victoria Sison & Family

Great and friendly staff. Helpful and very accommodating. Although room for improvement in ventilation around shared area. Could be more lenient in drinking rules around the house. Loved it! You will be seeing us again. :)  

Abby Romero & Family

Excellent! Expectations were met. We enjoyed our stay, the kids loved the pool. Thank you!

Joyce Cacho & Friends

Perfect! Greatly enjoyed!

Marvin Portillo & Colleagues

Excellent service. Exceeded expectations. The place provided the relaxation unexpectedly. It was a surprise that the place provided. Such "light feeling" as to be conducive to actual rest.

Marvin also sent us a wonderful and heartwarming private message, which we are publishing with permission:

"Hello there Sir Ian. Foremost, I wish to thank you for the chance to stay at The Lily. I have been to many resorts, bed & breakfast places, and hotels throughout the world but it is the first time for me to be in a place where I immediately felt relaxed. I can't point to any one thing but The Lily made me feel good. The layout, aesthetics, and the museum like pieces of art all blend together to make a wonderful sensory experience. I hesitate to say "good feng shui" or positive aura but The Lily exudes that "vibe" that induces you to just slow down and relax. It is wonderful. The beach had no pull on me at all. It was just the place itself making me just sit down in the comfortable couch and just admire all the eyes can see. Again, thank you very much."

Thank YOU from the bottom of our hearts, Marvin!

MCHS Batch 1970 Reunion

The service staff is courteous, efficient and gracious esp. Grace. At first we thought the pool was too small but the water temperature was good that we stayed for almost 4 hours. Batch '70 enjoyed the food and the accomodation. Your strength compared to others offering the same kind is the cleanliness of your place.

Jane Argonza & Family

Ate Grace and Allan helped us in all our requests. They are very accommodating and nice. :) The house is equipped with all our needs. I just hoped that there's mobile signal w/in the vicinity. We love our stay! The kids enjoyed the pool and the volleyball court. The house is very unique and beautiful. :)

Gio Miranda & Coca-Cola team

Very accommodating and nice. Yes!!! Will definitely recommend the place to my friends. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being the highest, we will rate our experience at 11. :)

Alice Lim & Family

Efficient and polite. Expectations met. We enjoyed our overnight stay in The Lily though due to a bad weather, we were not able to enjoy the beach itself as originally planned. Looking forward to come back here soon!

Francis Flores & Colleagues

They are very helpful! Above expectation. From the room, pool, & the entire house is indeed very tasteful. We enjoyed our stay, although it was very short but every moment was wonderful.

Raver Santos & Family

Amazing! They were great—food was great. We had very minimal asks but they were very helpful all throughout. The house is beautiful. We just had a different expectation of the beach—we thought it was "swimmable." :( But the pool was fantastic. The kids enjoyed it a lot. The adults enjoyed the very homey feel of the house. Spacious and the furniture was exquisitely chosen and put together. The food was great and portion very very generous. The staff was very accommodating yet respectful of our privacy. The kids enjoyed everything which was the most important.

Raymond Rosal & colleagues

Excellent. Accommodating. House very cozy and good facilities. House has a very nice design. Very relax and conducive for our purpose.

Jehan de Guzman & Family

Ms Grace and kuya Allan were very kind and hospitable. They showed us around and even provided transpo going to 7-11. The Lily is even more beautiful compared to the photos online. Each detail: knobs, and hooks were well thought of. We loved the artwork and interior design. Salamat sa pagbahagi ng inyong tahanan sa aming pamilya. :)

Josephine L. Libunao & Family

Excellent! Beyond expectation! The house was absolutely beautiful & the caretakers were very kind and accommodating! Dear The Lily, thank you for the fun-filled weekend full of beautiful memories & delicious food! We hope to be back someday.

Amor Nunag & Coca-Cola Philippines team

The service is good, accommodating, the food is good. Expectations are met. Just a comment on the wifi access, though it is on the website. We had fun and enjoyed the experience. We''ll recommend the place.

Philippine Airlines Inc—Legal Affairs

Staff are accommodating & respectful. The house was as it was in photos, even better. It was clean and had enough space for everyone. We had such a great time. We are happy to have had the opportunity to build team memories at The Lily. Thank you for having us!

Ellein Stephanie Lava & Family

The staff is very welcoming and accomodating. Our needs were assisted properly. We were just a bit disappointed with the beachfront as it is already rainy season. The house is amazing and has a very home-y experience. <3 The Lily has been my dream beach house for 2 years already. Being here this summer truly gave me a lovely and relaxing experience. Hopefully, we will come back next year. Thank you! <3 <3 <3

Jonathan Santos & Friends

Extremely helpful and hospitable. We like the disconnect from the technology as it gives us more time to spend with each other.

Arianne San Juan & Family

They are very accomodating, easy to talk to. All our requests were prioritized. The venue/home contains a very nice pool. And beach. Nice room and complete kitchen facilities/equipments. Overall beautiful & spacious house. Truly to be considered a HOME. <3 Our family would like to thank you for the warm welcome. We really enjoyed our stay—it helps us to feel relax and refresh considering the stressful environment in Manila/Cavite. Definitely will recommend this to our friends. We are truly grateful. <3 See you again! Hopefully soon. :)

Arlene Espina & Family

Perfect!!! More than enough! I promise to write down everything in the website review. This box (in the feedback form) is not enough!

Excellent service! We will come back in the future! Super enjoy!

We really love how the caretaker ate Grace took care of us and made us really feel at home.We would definitely come back here. The house is very nice and cozy. Perfect vacation.

Marishka Tumpag & Family

Miss Grace is very attendant to our needs. Aircon at the terrace is not cool in the afternoon until night. Everything is accessible. Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful house. Our kids love the pool.

Bernie Li and Team

Ate Grace & Allan were very accomodating and friendly. The house is beautiful, homey and comfortable. The Lily is a nice venue for bonding and relaxation.  

Mercy Joy Ringor & Family 

Ma'am Grace was very accomodating and kind. 5 stars for her. We had a great experience and will recommend this place to our friends.

Jennifer Garcia & Friends

Very warm and hospitable. The caretaker, Grace was so friendly and approachable, she made us feel right at home. Expectations about the house was met. The beach was low tide when we got here, so it was a little different from the online photos. Ian is a very accomodating owner. Grace gets an extra-mile award from us because she goes out of her way to meet our requests. The food is awesome, the staff is friendly and approachable (but still gives us privacy). Overall, we were home. :) To Ian and Grace, thank you for accomodating our food menu.

Tina Bascon / Optimind Technology Solutions

Great service! Very warm and welcoming. We wish to come back! Our expectations were exceeded. Our whole team love the house, its ambience & the stuff. It was love at first sight. :) I will send an email to document the whole experience. :)  

Gladys Planta & Family

Excellent service! I'm giving ate Grace and kuya Allan 5 stars! It's above our expectations. Kudos to sir Ian for a great design of his house. We enjoyed the pool, volleyball court, the gazebos and all the lounge corners! This is a memorable experience to our family. Thanks to sir Ian for accommodating us to his home. We felt at home during our stay. And thanks a lot to ate Grace and kuya Allan for being so welcoming and especially for accommodating our requests for our surprise to our moms! We will definitely come back. :)

Victoria Santiago & Family

Very courteous! Accomodating! Friendly! APPROACHABLE! Facilities complete and all NEW! We all enjoy our stay here at the Lily! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! BABALIK-BALIKAN! Thank you very much! Sulit ang ibinayad namin! Dear The Lily, Thank you so much! We will definitely come back! Di kami mapapahiya to recommend! Highly recommended po!  

Brandbomb Creatives and Events Inc.

They are a lot more accommodating with our stay. They let us feel at home. With regards to your facilities it is clean and neat. Very relaxing with the ambience. We enjoy our stay & looking forward to another one! :)

Jennifer Anne Payuyo & Family

Kudos to Ms Grace and her family. They are very accommodating. Ang babait po nila. :) Kung ano po yung nakikita sa website, ganun po talaga ang makukuha/nakuha namin. Dear Sir Ian, thank you so much for allowing me and family to stay in your home. Sobrang nag-enjoy po kami. Sulit na sulit po ang VL ko sir, sakto wala masyado signal hirap akong tawagan hehe. Sana po maulit, hehe!

Very accommodating and friendly. It was better than the pictures online. It was awesome. The whole family enjoyed the stay. Feels like home. Thank you!

Sheena Castro & Family

Excellent. Very accomodating. Will come back again.

Jarese Luz & Family

Staff was very accomodating and friendly. However, we expected that there were more indoor bathrooms. The Lily Batangas gave us a great experience. Looking forward to coming back. :) Thank you.

Ana Marie Bautista & Friends

VERY GOOD. A/C at 2nd floor not working.* Great house and facilities.

*We regret this incident, since The Lily did not expect the A/C to malfunction during their stay.

Roselyn Damicog & Family

Great service. Nice staffs. Beyond expectations. Our experience in Lily beach house is great. The house is amazingly beautiful and the staffs are accomodating. Ian Reyno also. Thank you for the beautiful experience.  

Mary Ann Roda and Family

Staff are very accommodating & very kind. Yes indeed! Place is clean and organized. This place is awesome! I will definitely come back with all my family :) Ian is very fine in answering my queries & very accommodating. We enjoyed so much the house, specially the pool!

Sherinai C. Lazaga & Friends

Caretaker is very friendly. The place was very nice and cozy, it was clean and the vibe of the house was very nice. I'm sure everyone had a good time. Spacious house and the place had a nice ambience. Experience and memories in this house was solid. Unforgettable birthday celebration.

Bebot Siccion & Family

Your staff was very accommodating, kind, courteous and they pamper us with the food they served. Your facilities was amazing, clean, and well organize. I give you a "10" for the highest rate. Definitely we will come back here. Thank you for a very memorable 15th birthday celebration of my daughter. :)

Via SMS: Hi Ian!! My family enjoyed our stay at your home. Your staff was so accommodating and tama ka masarap magluto si Grace. She pampered us on the food she cooked during our stay, especially the boodle fight. My daughter's 15th birthday celebration was so memorable. Thank you and for sure we will go back and recommend your resort. God bless and more power. :)

Carissa 'Iya' Veloso & Colleagues

The "good service" term is underrated. We received the BEST treatment! We didn't expect such treatment and they definitely went beyond our expectations! Kudos to ma'am Grace and team! All expectations met! Just the pool. Better if it's cooler but overall, we were all satisfied! Especially when we lost electricity, it was brought back seconds after since they have their own generator! How cool is that!? We can't express how much positivity and beauty could we use to describe this humble abode. The food was superb! More than the amount we expected! PLS ORDER LECHE FLAN!!! Do more advertising so more people would know! This place is definitely a catch! The best catch!! Experience + ambience + hospitality = BEST!

Judith Gabatino & Family

Excellent service. Love to go back for another vacation.

Dr. Victoria Caliwag & Family

VERY GOOD! Grace and Allen are both accomodating and very attentive with our needs. Too bad, we brought along our food. Next time we would like to try Grace & Allan's menu. (Just provide us hand towels next time please). Thank you Lily for being our home (though we are incomplete today) even for just a day. We had a grand time! Will be back again, with the complete gang! <3<3<3 The CALIWAGS <3<3<3

Donnalyn Guevara & Friends

Service was great. Very accomodating. Exceeded expectation. Furnitures & painting were fascinating. Though we already know that there is no TV and wifi, we still hoped that you have one to have more entertainment. We like the place so much. Wish we can have a same place one day. The furnitures, art pieces and specially the painting are really eye-catching. We would definitely recommend this place to our family and friends. Thank you.

Mylene Avendano & Family

Excellent. They are always available when needed. We felt so at home. :). Privacy, really nice place. Superb! Our family enjoyed our vacation. We will definitely come back. Thank you :)

Melissa Borbon and Co.

Staff is very friendly and courteous. The place is highly recommended.

Jason Bucoy & Family

Excellent! Exceeded expectations! Great place for family get-togethers. We will definitely recommend to family and friends.

Veng Taningco & Family

Very good! Wonderfully beautiful. Unparalleled! Will definitely live the memories and share more days with the rest of family & friends.

Emmanuel Gomez & Family

Grace and Allan were absolutely the best during our trip. Extremely helpful and personable. Dear The Lily, thanks very much for letting us stay again in your lovely home.

Geraldine Gomez & Friends

Staff are very accomodating. All your facilities are all very good. Much more we have expected. We could have enjoy but due to present situation*. But we will again plan our trip to come back.


*Their stay in The Lily was the exact time an earthquake struck Batangas.  

Cathy de Vera and Family

Ms Grace and her husband were very accommodating and helpful. They always smile, you will never see them make face, they give suggestions & options and that's a plus. :) Definitely satisfied! What you see in the internet is the same when you get here. The place is superb and well maintained. Bitin! We would love to get back here! Bonding well spent. :)

The Poor Traveler


The hugely popular travel guide The Poor Traveler, recognized by respected global media agencies such as BBC, CNN, Digital Photographer, BuzzFeed and the Huffington Post, has included THE LILY in its Facebook list of the Best Resorts in Batangas!

YAAAAAY!!! We are truly honored and grateful.

Joana Pintoy & friends

Very accomodating! Very nice & complete. Very good! Keep it up! <3

Jennifer Velasco & Skycable Team

Friendly and accommodating. Love the entire house/interior. We enjoyed the stay, definitely will come back again! Thanks to Ms. Grace and Sir Ian.

Lee-Anne Tobias & Petron team

Very hospitable. Good job. No complaints. We loved it! Nice house, good entertainment, good food. Thank you.

Ian & Mae Romano-Soriano & Friends

Sir Ian has been very accommodating from the day I inquired up to the day we stayed at The Lily. We were assisted by the very cheerful & friendly Ms. Grace, the moment we arrived at the venue. Every part of the house is Instagram worthy! :) We were all mesmerized, the moment we saw the place. My colleagues and I didn't talk to each other for a good 15-20 minutes, as we were all busy exploring the place, and took a lot of selfies! This is a home away from home, indeed! We enjoyed every minute of our stay here, and we're hoping to be back soon! You can ask Ms. Grace to cook food for you... it's highly recommended, she cooks delicious food! Her version of adobo is a must try!  

J.S. & Family

Ate Grace & family are prompt on our needs. They're very accommodating and friendly. The resort has all the things we need. We particularly appreciated how fully equipped the kitchen is. The Lily's interior is a feast in the eyes! We enjoyed it's collection of artworks! We literally took pictures in every corner! The pool is a plus! Snorkeling in the middle of the sea was so much fun! Moreover it felt a home for awhile. Thanks to Lily's staff and Ian!

Anne Francisco and Family

It's great. Every one was so nice and accomodating. It's an A. House is good, our needs was attended. The Lily, we had fun. The house was great, the caretaker was great. Can't say anything negative. I just hope that your rate wont go high even if you go viral. Everything was awesome!

Shara Miranda & Friends

Excellent service. They left us on our own unlike some resorts. They allowed us to enjoy and gave us our space to enjoy the activities. We enjoyed the place especially the house, very much! :) Very clean, very homey & beautiful.

Stacey Pierce & Family

Perfect! (Were your expectations met?) YES, very much! Will definitely come back!

Jeffrey Stevens & Family

Grace and her staff were amazing, and went above and beyond to make our stay fun and memorable, and always with smiles on their faces. Everything about The Lily was above expectations. From the beautiful house, the amazing staff, & incredible food. The resort's perfect grounds made for a perfect stay. Grace is the best, her food is beyond amazing. Our family reunion of 30+ people felt right at home at The Lily from the moment we arrived. Everyone had a great time and we highly recommend it to all. Thank you for helping make great memories.

Encarnacion Family

We got excellent service, beyond what was expected. We felt very welcome. Our expectations were more than met. We had peace and quiet away from the city, and had all the amenities we needed. We would have loved to stay longer—much longer.

Ana Marie Gianan & Family

Exceptionally excellent service. Highly attentive & approachable. Honorable. Friendly. Excellent facilities. Expectations were exceeded. It was love at first sight for me when I stumbled upon your website on the net. Now that we have actually stayed over, I think we might progress towards a long-standing relationship. :) We had fun. My family enjoyed our stay immensely. I hope you can accommodate another request from us for another visit. Thanks a lot.

Jaysebel Verdadero & Friends

Friendly and helpful. Facilities are good and very clean. Areas to improve—celphone signal/wifi. Very good and enjoyed.

Bernadette Bombase & Friends

Excellent & very friendly. It exceeded our expectations. As always, the experience is very memorable, stress-free & amazing. The team had a great time and we love to come back here again.

Rochelle Abella & Friends

We're speechless. One of our recent guests was a lifestyle blogger, who made a truly wonderful review of our place. It's an honor to have hosted for you, Rochelle! Click the button below to read the really cool things she wrote about us.

Novalyn Asuncion & Friends

Awesome! Ate Grace did a wonderful job in welcoming us at The Lily. She also made it sure we feel like we're in our own home. She reminded us that we can treat The Lily like our own. Exceeded our expectations. Dear The Lily, the stay, though very short was worth it. Something that we can remember and cherish. God bless. — Team Nina, Brother International, Hinduja Global Solutions. 30 Oct 2016   

Rechie Cruz & Family

Alan and Grace are very accomodating, helpful & friendly. It looks to us like their main goal is to make every guest happy. Apart from the beach, everything else were beyond our expectations. The accomodation, service, amenities w/in the property were perfect. Although the beach wasn't too inviting. Our family was bent on having a restful weekend. The Lily was just the place for this much longed for rest to happen. Kids didn't mind the "no internet", "no phone signal" & "no TV". The whole place was conducive for family tete-a-tete and different forms of bonding. Thank you Ian, Alan and Grace for keeping this place for families like us to go to for respite from busy city life. See you again! God bless you all!      

Rechie also sent us a beautiful, beautiful text message:

Hi Ian this is Rechie, your guest at the Lily last weekend. I am dropping a few lines to let you know that my family and myself of course enjoyed our stay at the Lily. It has that relaxing and rejuvenating ambiance. Our kids had fun despite the absence of Internet and tv - which we were very surprised about. But to top it all, you have a very able and accommodating team in grace and Allan. It's like going home to the province after a long stay in the city. We love every book and cranny of the place. Thank you. Please keep maintaining it adding something new that will give returning guests that different experience every time. We will surely come back. Until then, God bless the hands that keep such lovely place warm.

Karla Banayat & Family

Staff service is great! Ate Grace & Kuya Allan were kind enough to assist us in anything that we forgot to buy in the market. Kuya Allan even helped my mom grill. And of course, Ate Grace is just wonderful. The place was very nice. Facilities were complete—great for big groups. The pathway to the beach can be improved (i.e. sweep the trash out of the way), but we didn't really need to go to the beach to enjoy our stay because The Lily itself was very nice already! We loved our stay here. It has been very relaxing, especially me who needed to get away from the busy city life. We were only a group of 3 but the whole place was reserved only for us—which we didn't expect. Overall, we are very pleased since the moment we arrived! We'll definitely come back in the future.

Aimee Santos-Lyons, Family & Friends

Extremely friendly, attentive, and responsive. They treated us like family. The house is BEAUTIFUL and such a delight. We relaxed the minute we arrived. We LOVED your place—you can make a story out of the artworks, the furniture. Each one clearly chosen with care and love. It's always a joy to stay at someone's home that is so generously shared!

Frances Romero & Friends

The staff was very accommodating. They welcomed us with a smile and were very thoughtful. Everything was like how we expected it would be. The service was warm and friendly, the house was cozy, very room-y and beautifully designed. Definitely IG-worthy! We really enjoyed staying at The Lily. The trip (to The Lily) was already exciting enough and when we arrived we were welcomed by the feeling of being at home. It was such a nice experience that everyone will treasure forever. We will definitely come back. :)

OPPO Team Building

Very good and accommodating. Very good facilities. Resort is very good, clean, and well maintained. Keep it up! :D

Regine Rodriguez & Family

Great service from the start! Very hospitable & warm! Great facilities! I had a great time spending my birthday salubong here, definitely one for the books! Thanks!

Patricia Enriquez & Family

The staff is very friendly and reliable. Attentive to our needs. The house was clean, enough beds for everyone. Kitchen stuff were complete. Pool was clean. Despite bad weather, the house was enough. Thank God for the generator! Dear the Lily staff and owner, Thank you for the great overnight stay in your beautiful & cozy house! We will definitely come back! <3 Enriquez family

Maria Kathrina Dychangco & Family

Very welcoming and accommodating.  Facilities are first class. But please put vidae & mosquito repellent. Put hot water in your CR.  We enjoyed our stay.  The house is first class. Hope we can get  a discount next time. :) Staffs are very accommodating. You'll feel like it's your house that you're staying. 

Jane C. Tenorio & the ABS-CBN Film Archives team

Very accomodating. Very friendly.  It's a beautiful place to stay in.  How wonderful and beautiful this place is! 

Max's Group: Katleya Quijano

Very excellent service. Very accommodating staff. They are always ready to help/assist. The place is really homey, clean, and beautiful. We like the overall ambience including the design and feel of the place.  The team had a wonderful experience at The Lily.  We had a great time swimming and bonding since the place is very relaxing.  Suggestion: hanger for wet clothes.

Jezzney Ann Gabriel & Family

Attentive to (our) needs.  I guess the photos of the place (especially the pool) didn't meet the expectation BUT upon having stayed it wasn't small at all. The house was lovely.  Clean and well-maintained.  You'd think at first that the lack of TV's signal was an "excuse" for bonding but it was an effective way to really bring us together.  What started as an inconvenience made so much sense.  Lovely house and efficient staff. The only con maybe is the beach, but other than that it's great. :) 

P-Elite Runners & Friends

(The service) was great.  They were very alert and responsible.  The house is wonderful.  We truly felt like we were home and that we are relaxed.  The interiors is well-maintained.  We like how the house had a fusion of Filipino and Spanish design.  We had so much fun.  We enjoyed the pool.  We will never forget the experience.  The house is spacious, it's beautiful and comfy. 

Dr. Jhoanna Narvaez & Family

Look...they made nice collages of their stay! So sweet!

Their wonderful feedback that they sent via e-mail. Thank you, Jing!

IDEAS Montessori Preschool team

Excellent.  House is beautiful, well-kept and very clean.  We enjoyed our stay.  You have a beautiful house and blessed w/ staff that take good care of it.  Food was delicious.  We'd love to go back! <3 

Landa Abundo & The Learning Center (TLC) Team

Great! Ate Grace and her staff are accommodating. They are ready to assist.  Ian was easy to coordinate with. Everyone was approachable. Thank you!  The website photos lived up to our expectations.  The Lily is well-maintained and beautiful.  It was able to accommodate all 24 of us wonderfully!  The food was delicious! Thank you!   The Lily is a perfect getaway place for families and teams like us looking for a space to unwind. Thank you for welcoming us into your home. 

Eunice Guevarra & Team

Grace was really polite, fun and accommodating.  They were very helpful.  Yes, the place is really great!  We loved it, definitely coming back <3

JP Garcia & Team

Excellent service! Ate Grace & staff made sure that we were provided w/ everything that we need. The staff were very accomodating & warm, we really felt at home. Clean, calming, spacious, everything you could ask  for, for the perfect weekend get-away is here. Hello Ian & the Lily staff! Thank you for giving us one of the best vacation experience. Everything was flawless from the time we reserved until we checked out.  It was truly an amazing experience & we will surely come back! 

Imelda Marinas / Joana Santiago and Team

They were very accommodating & friendly.  They are always willing to help in whatever way & always with a smile.  Love the house!  It makes you feel like you never left home.  The kids enjoyed the unlimited swimming!  We truly enjoyed our stay here. The food was great as evidenced by a few pounds gained here and there.  Would love to come back again for R&R.  

Patricia Masangkay & Team

Excellent!  The place is so nice but it gets too hot in the evening.  Aircon/electric fan for the common area. The Lily is so nice! Would recommend! 

Audrey Albert & Family

They are very accomodating especially during the brownout last night.  Ms. Grace was very accomodating on assisting us on the beach.  The place was very nice, although the aircon on the bunk room was a bit hot. Also there are frogs near the pool area.  We enjoyed the Lily a lot. We wish we could stay longer.  Thanks for the great service! Till next time!! :) 

Joy Tagle & Family

Ate Grace is very helpful.  She even got us a boat and cottage near the beach.  The house is very pretty, but the pool was too hot.  We love it but we should stay longer next time.  Thank you for accommodating us even on short notice. 

Ann Margaret Chang & Family

Warm and friendly staff. We appreciate their hospitality and how they take care of our needs and requests, even solemnly answering the most candid of questions ("Ate Grace, are there really zombies in there?"). :)   The Lily was everything the website described, a quiet and charming home away from our respective homes.  The Lily is truly a calming escape from the hustle and bustle of the metro.  Our wonderful stay here gave us a chance to recharge and enjoy the company of family. 

Dax Gregorio & Team

Staff are very accomodating. The Lily is a very fun experience. Place is very cozy. 

Jingle Javier & VR Benito Architectural Services team

Service was excellent!! Grace made sure that all our needs were met. :) Facilities were met. The house felt like home. The furnitures are so cozy and we felt as if we're in our own paradise. :) Dear Ian, Grace, & Allan, Thank you very much for welcoming us into your home. We all had a relaxing overnight stay and enjoyed every meal served to us. We also had fun looking at all the details of your home ... very beautiful. We will definitely come back!

Zy Capili & Kelvin

Hi Ian,

Thank you for letting us stay in your Home.. Lily is love, we love the peacefulness and the coziness of the place, we really fell in love with the place.. It is really a one of a kind experience staying at Lily + the super delicious food prepared by ate Grace even the coffe and the hot choco they are the best I've ever tasted 😊 . Hope to have another transaction with you next time. 👋🏼

In Feedback form: Food: Ate Grace cooks SUPER DELICIOUS Foods; even the coffee & the hot choco is better than the one in STARBUCKS; "No diet, diet para sa luto ni Ate Grace."  Accommodation/hospitality: All of the staff are hospitable, nice, helpful & very friendly; we really felt at home. The place is so peaceful, quiet (videoke singers blend with the sound of nature :). The coziness of the area is SUPERB. The furnitures & paintings are one of a kind. No words can describe the peacefulness of this place. This will surely be an inspiration for our future house. This is way beyond our expectation. :) Dear Lily: Thank you for sharing your home to us. Your home gives us peace, love, & inspiration. Seeing & experiencing the beauty of your home with my loved one inspired me to face the trials back in the city. Turning 2 years as a couple, your home will be part of our endless love. Thanks Lily. We hope that you'll inspire more people.

Joanne Nicolas & Family

The staff was accommodating and very helpful.  The whole place is clean, beautiful & very relaxing. We enjoyed every corner of the house.  Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home. We enjoyed every minute of our stay at The Lily.  Thank you for answering all my queries and accomodating all of our request.

Service was excellent. Friendly! :) Expectations were definitely met! We got the privacy and relaxation we expected to have. We love the place.  It radiates the home-y feel we wanted. :) 

Jhen Tayone & Family

Excellent and very accomodating.  Expectations were met 101%.  We really enjoyed our stay here.  Surely, we will come back and recommend your rest house!  :) 

Jeremae Flores & Family

Very warm, accommodating. Also left us on our own for just enough privacy. Expectations were met, super! Love the house and pool. Almost didn't go to the beach.  Plastic on mattress was a bit creaky though.  We wish we could stay longer <3 Will come back! 

Marian Timbang & Family

The service is good.  Staff are friendly and approachable.  Our expectations weren't exactly met.  The place is good but was very very hot.  We suggest that centralized aircondition be placed on the living room.  Thank you for accommodating us during our stay at The Lily. 

Kathleen Salmete & Family

The staff are all kind and approachable.  We enjoyed much during our stay.  We enjoyed the house, the pool and the ambiance.

Manalo & San Gabriel Family

Excellent service & very accommodating staff. (Were your expectations met?) Very much. I enjoy going to your resort bec of very relax feeling.

Via text message: Hi Ian, just to let you know that me and my whole family enjoyed the stay. The place is quiet and very relaxing. Your accommodating staff is also a plus factor. They let us feel that we are in our own home. We will surely plan for our third visit. Thank you very much.   

Hazel Love Larano & Family

Grace and Allan are so accomodating!

Yes!!! :) Thank you "The Lily" we had a great holiday break! Till our next visit!  

They also sent us their personal photo and an e-mail message.  So sweet! 

Hera Ng Sinco & Family

Grace did an excellent job.  She's very polite & accomodating.  Alan is also polite. Barok is very nice & kind to my grandmom & dad.   The house & surroundings are great! We only recommend hand bars in the toilet & shower for senior citizens. Also, put non-slip tapes on the tiles, bec. they're very slippery.

We had such an awesome experience in your house, pool and beach.  But most of all, your staff made it more comfortable to stay.  They made your house a home away from our home.  Thank you very much for a great time.  God bless you more. 

Pia Quintero and Friends

Very good customer service. We're very happy with our stay.

Initially we were expecting all rooms could be used as this was what we understood from the website.  We hope you could specify that there will be one room w/c will be unaccesible for reservations of 1-15 pax.  But we're satisfied that Grace allowed us to use the other room as well.

Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us.  We enjoyed our stay very much and will definitely recommend to our family and friends.

Jhoserey Basaca & Team

The staff treated us with kindness & courtesy.

They were very efficient & made helpful suggestions on how we could enjoy our stay to the fullest.

The facilities are excellent.  The interior is well-designed, offering maximum space and also has a pleasant and relaxing ambiance.  (Who was the interior designer?)

You have a lovely home.  Thank you for letting us stay as your guests.  Our team had an enjoyable and relaxing experience.  We hope to come back with our families and other friends as well. :)

Accommodating & friendly.

As expected, the house/place is beautiful and clean.  However, we wish there's one more toilet and bathroom inside the house, and heater. :) ... and kitchen towels. :)

We all enjoyed our stay.  We loved the beach and the pool. Our experience made us want to stay longer.

Feedback from Teammember: 

Friendly! Great service!!! :)

Awesome and delicious fooooooood! <3

WE HAD THE BEST EXPERIENCE!  Only complaint was the bed and only one bathroom on the ground floor. :)

Lorie Sabareza & Family

Very good. They're friendly and very helpful. 

Exceeded our expectations.

It was a very nice experience staying at The Lily.  The pool's clean most especially the house is wonderfully beautiful. 

Daejin Kwon & Family

Very nice staff and hospitable.  And kind.  Specially to ate Grace and Kuya Allan. 

I expected na hindi ganito kaganda yung house and walang pool. 

We are enjoy a lot specially the ambiance. It is so refreshing and comfortable. The kids loved swimming. And I hope we will go there again.  

Leslie Dioko family

Very warm, nice, helpful, and accommodating. 

Expectations: Maybe a bigger ref/freezer and a toaster oven please :) and towels

We enjoyed it very much.  Very warm people, very warm place.

Karen Bautista & Family

Excellent service. Beyond expectation. The house is so clean, nice interiors and felt like home.  Very spacious. 

We'll definitely go back here. An overnight is not enough.  Everyone had a great time staying at The Lily. We did not even bother to stay at the beach because the home is enough for us to unwind.  Grace and her husband are very accommodating and helpful.  Ian Reyno, thank you for allowing us to experience your home.  It's just simply beautiful.

(Expectations?) Exceeded! Even though there's no TV and internet connection, the kids had so much fun!

The Lily is a very private and cozy place. The kids enjoyed the pool and everybody loved the sumptuous food. It's a perfect place to go to for families.  For sure, we'll refer The Lily to family and friends! Love, Michelle, Tony, Mikel, Nino and Lily :)  

Carole Nicolas & Family

Lifted from their Feedback Form:

They are very accomodating & attentive to our needs.  It's really ideal for small intimate group, to be able to relax & enjoy the place.  Next time it should be a longer stay as the time we spent is so short to explore.   

Ellora Apora & Family

Lifted from their feedback form:

The staff of The Lily are very nice & accomodating and that makes our stay memorable most especially comfortable.

The place is big and can accomodate large group of people. Availability of utensils is a plus.

Dear The Lily, Thank you very much for the lovely experience that we had this weekend.  We had so much fun during our stay it gave us a break from our very stressful workweek.  Please continue providing excellent accomodation. Thank you to sir Ian and ate Grace for everything.  Looking forward to our next transaction, hopefully soonest.  Thank you. <3

A Fabulous Review

This just in!

Helen Margaret Perito & Family

From the moment I inquired to Ian to the very last moment with Ate Grace and Kuya, I'd say everything was spectacular. Nicest host/caretakers I've ever met.

The house and included facilities was great. Definitely felt like we were home, a really great home.  Our stay was enjoyable, though short.

Dear The Lily, thanks for having us here at your lovely place. Every single member of our group enjoyed our stay, even my 4 month old baby loved the interiors and couldn't stop looking at the bright walls.  Beautiful in every corner, including the caretakers.  Hope to be back!

Dave Saul Camarce & team

Copied verbatim from their feedback page:

The staffs were very accommodated. They ensure that everything we need were provided.

(Were your expectations met?)  Yes, 100%. Because the place was very relaxing, wonderful and almost perfect to stay/live for. All we need were there and it was so amazing. We definitely enjoyed our stay here. 

We've been so very satisfied. From every single detail on the house.  From furniture, paintings, and others were all amazing. We love to stay again here because it was so amazing, wonderful and relaxing for stay. ***** Perfect 5 stars!

(On service:)  Good, awesome, they take care of you, they clean really fast, like a family, but please stock tissue and kitchen towels & coasters to avoid getting tables wet (comment from Ian: You just had to ask! Hehe!).

(Were expectations met?): House is great, thought beach was ok but not great. 

Mahal kita, Lily.  And we're sorry for the first night. 

Je t'aime.

Ich liebe dich.

Excellent (service). Thanks to Grace and company.

More than what we expected. The pool was great! Nobody complained of not having internet connection! That's totally new!  Ending: We had a lot of good laughs.

We had good activity; we had good food; we had good company;  we had a lot of fun; and we had a great place— a home away from our home in Intramuros (our office). BTW, we had good music here because of your speaker system! Thanks!  

Thanks, Ian! Thanks for sharing "The Lily" to us!

Grace and Allan have been very helpful and accommodating.  Friendly and always ready to assist you in any way they can.

The house is beautiful inside and out.  Additional toilet and bath would really be nice. 

We never expected the house to be this beautiful. :) Thank you for giving us the chance to bond again as a whole and complete family after 4 years. 

We will definitely come back and refer The Lily Batangas to our friends. Thank you. :)

One of our most unforgettable guests who we feel so much love from... and it shows in their feedback! 

Lifted verbatim from their Feedback Form

Grace and Allan were very helpful.  Even if they were both sick, they did not let this get in the way of welcoming our family and assisting us all throughout their stay.

The Lily is a very nice place.  We know that it is still a work in progress but we are very much satisfied with the place.  We hope to come back again soon.

Dear Ian, Thank you so much for opening your home to our family.  Your attention to detail is amazing and The Lily is indeed a wonderful tribute to your mom.  This is our first time to go on a trip after our mom (Jay's) passed on and we wished she could have been with us this time.  It was a restful weekend for all of us.  We hope to come back when the weather is better (i.e. walang bagyo) and the sea calmer (pero our nephews and niece enjoyed it pa rin).  Thanks again labs!  Love, on behalf of the Molinas, Javiers (and Elacios), Sandie


We owe you a bottle of wine.  Nabuksan nila Iya kasi.

A Letter from Ting

We were so touched to receive a letter from a guest, and are delighted to share it with you. 

Here's what it says, copied verbatim: 

May 14, 2015

Hi, Ian!

My name is Ting.

I was fortunate enough together with my family, to have stayed at The Lily as your guests, thru my daughter-in-law Pol.

As a memorial to the cheerful and gentle Mom Lilia, The Lily is indeed a home—a hideaway conducive to a slow, peaceful, easy, cool and away-from-it-all stay.

I believe it is providential that Mom Li-lia has been fittingly honored by an I-an, in laid-back Lian.

We had more than fun. We had Lilia and son.

Thank you so much. We recognize also the efficient and solicitous care given by your staff, Grace and Alan.

By the way, may we apologize for taking souvenirs from your place—memorable photos—selfies, usies, groupies, whatever, and best of all lasting and fun memories.

Again, thank you, maraming salamat, and mabalos na marhay.

Ting and Family
