Beach near the hotel not ideal for swimming. Had to rent a boat to reach another location if you want to go swimming or snorkeling. Restaurant closes at 8:00 PM, opens at 7:00 AM so has to go somewhere else for midnight snack or meal. Swimming pool is clean. Staff members are friendly.
The Staff were so helpful and did anything for me. They upgraded me to a superior suite and I was able to request Breakfast of my choice. It is only a 10 minute Bike ride to White Beach and it had great views. Definitely going back
My boyfriend and I had a beautiful stay at Utopia over the weekend. The view/location of the hotel is by far one of the best views around. 180 degrees of ocean, what can beat that? It is a very private, secluded place, so for those who want the hustle of White Beach or the bustle of Sabang, this isn't the right choice for you. For those who want privacy and a very quiet, intimate vacation, look no further!
The room we stayed at was very clean and had beautiful inferiors. The staff were all very accommodating. We were very pleased that they had a chauffeur to take us out, at no extra cost. People who are allergic to chlorine will also appreciated that their pool has fresh, clean water.
Our stay was so pleasant that the fact that we didn't get to go into the ocean as we would have wanted didn't so much matter. They do have an access road to a private beach, but it's a VERY steep downhill climb- and at the time of our stay, not yet fully paved. We did go on that trek down (not for the faint hearted or those who don't have a daily workout routine!), and found the beach to be too rocky to enjoy, so back to the pool it was!
We're definitely going back to this hotel next year!
To clarify: we stayed at Badladz Beach Resort, not the Adventure. Same owner, but we made a mistake when booking and they were gracious in making the change.
Really this hotel rates a 4.5 because there were so many lovely things about it and only a few things that would have changed it to a 5 star super experience. I state this only because the rooms are clean, but basic, so if someone is looking for a 5 star hotel this would not meet you need. It was a clean room, with very friendly customer service, great Mexican food, as well as other good food, clean pool and beautiful ocean. It was wonderful!
We stayed at the beach resort, located on the beach, and it was a little bit of heaven. We wanted quiet and comfortable, with beach access, and that is what we received. For those who prefer more activity there is transportation to get to a more touristy area. We did go to eat and did some shopping in that area, but we got what we wanted; a quiet, relaxed, enjoyable vacation away from crowds. We swam in the ocean, as well as their clean beautiful pool. Best part was relaxing, looking out at the ocean, while the palm tress waved softly in the breeze, and sipping on a cool drink. The sunrise was also incredible.
We do need to state we came at the end of the tourist season and so that may have contributed to the hotel being less active. However, I think even in the busy season it would be an enjoyable experience.
