Villa Carlos Resort

Our suite
Villa Carlos Resort, along the gray sand Ihatub Beach, has airconditioned suites (PhP1,600) with 3 king-size beds, a small TV, compartmentalized bathroom (shower and water closet had separate compartments with the lavatory between both) and private balcony overlooking the sea. 

The resort also had a restaurant and a videoke .   A covered badminton court was still being built during our stay.

People frolicking at Ihatub Beach

The suite's balcony was perfect for viewing the gathering of tuba (coconut wine) in the morning, people frolicking along  the black sand Ihatub Beach in the afternoon and, come dusk, a beautiful sunset.  
In 2007, management of the resort changed hands and the resort was renamed Villa sa Aplaya Beach Resort.  It now has 11 airconditioned rooms with bath, 21" cable TV and refrigerator plus, aside from the abovementioned facilities, a 25-pax conference room.  The badminton court is now operational.
