  • Water too deep for kids!

    by rishseason Updated Apr 4, 2012

    If you're bringing your kids to the beach in Laiya to enjoy the sand, don't be easily fooled with hotel-like accommodations.

    There are high-end accommodations there with swimming pools, but the reason why they have their pool is... because you can't enjoy the beach itself because it's too deep !!

    If you'll go there just for the pool and travel 2-3 hours from Manila, why waste so much time? You can always swim in a pool within your subdivision or anywhere near the city.

    Recommended beach with water safe for the kids -- One Laiya Beach Resort and nearby Estrellas de Mendoza resort

    Laiya: lay off the Rocks!

    by herowina Written May 10, 2009

    Make sure that you pack a pair of Aqua shoes. Even the shallow parts are quite rocky. I had difficulty staying in the water for a long time because of the rough and stony "floor." the sea doesn't gradually become deep from the beach. Sometimes, from the beach, you end up in the deep part right away! Be careful!

    Beware of Lazy Sunday Boat

    by drunkenmaster4 Updated Apr 22, 2007
    The Lazy Sunday or the Greedy Sunday

    This may not be a big deal for many of us but I just cant let this go and I would like people going there to at least have an idea and ideally to voice this out (as I do not encourage boycotts- just informing them that we are aware of it and that we dont like them to do it, may help them realize it) since it is not good for their tourism industry if they will let such things happen.

    I am talking about how greedy this boat operator is- Lazy Sunday Boat. Currently they are the only one that has this better looking boat so most tourist prefer hiring their boat for a 1 hour island cruise. We booked them for a trip and later on they were giving us lots of reason not to honor their obligation (they malisiously sent somebody to talk to us, offering their boat as if he is representing the same boat. We agreed and later on found out that its different- they then claimed that they (the better boat) cant serve us as its their policy not to compete with the other boat)). Our suspicion was that they made another booking later that day and because they would earn more on that booking (they charge 1,500 Php per trip but for more than 15 persons, they charge per head- we are only 11 and the group that took our trip was more than 20), they served them instead.

    I hope those who will go there, who will hire this boat should inform them that you know of this scheme and you dont agree with it. Its a little thing we can do that may change such greedy mentality.
