I had so much fun!!! Except for one thing though, bad trip kami dun sa management ng resort na pinuntahan namin? yung Isla Vista Beach resort! At first they were very accommodating and thet were all smiles? but later on they showed their true colors? it started when we bought our food from the nearby market and had them cook from their in-house restaurant? hello naman kasi sobrang konti lang ng choices from their menu, alangan naman we have to eat the same food everyday, not to mention that the food are overpriced, as in overrated talaga! & most of the time unavailable pa yung mga ibang oorderin mo, nde pa ganun kasarap yung food, substandard?

Then everything that we do, na involved sila, it also equates with money, we know that they have corkage fees, & that?s ok, cuz we?re willing to pay and we have money to spend naman! What pissed us off talaga & pushed us to the limit was when they said that we couldn?t eat at the resto eventhough we had our food cooked by them. They wanted ata nabayaran namin ang pag-kain namin dun, I mean pati yung pag-gamit namin ng tables, chairs and utensils! Hello!? Meron nga silang corkage area, does that mean we still have to pay so that we can use the corkage area??? Grabe naman na ata yun!?

Unique Qualities: What?s worse is nagpaparinig pa yung mga tauhan/crew nung resort!? Tinatarayan pa kami!? Is that the way you treat guests? We were expecting na dapat hospitable sila, for one thing, probinsya yun, and resort yun! At higit sa lahat, we are paying customers! Napaka- walang modo ng mga crew dun! Mal-edukado talaga! Di nila naisip na they can only have visitors through recommendations, especially for mid-class resorts like theirs? and definitely after what we have experienced, they will lose a lot, not only from bad reviews like this, but also by word-of-mouth?

I even searched for comments about the resort sa net, and I found several people sharing the same sentiments? I thought samin lang nila ginawa yun, marami narin palang may ganung experience sa Isla Vista Resort? So now, WE STRONGLY DO NOT RECOMMEND THAT YOU STAY AT ISLA VISTA BEACH RESORT. Isla Vista Resort is the nearest kick-off point to Potipot Island and will be your fist choice, but then think again, there are a lot of other resorts? just go search for it through the web?
