Have you been to Bataan?
Bataan is located in Central Luzon region of the Philippines; the capital is Balanga City. Bataan is known for World War II history and Nuclear Power Plant but of course, there are so many things to do in Bataan.
I was already in college when I first visited this province; I have a friend who invited us to their house. It was sembreak so off we went and stayed there for few days. We visited Mt. Samat and went to a resort which I can’t remember the name anymore. Hehehe! Then we had a day trip Corregidor, from their place we just rode a boat to reach Corregidor. (rented)
Do you know that Corregidor is not part of Bataan but it is located in Cavite?
I revisited Corregidor with my family and we availed a tour from Sun Cruises, it is a guided tour so it is a different experience compared to my first visit.

Morong Star Beach Resort and Hotel
From its name, it is located in Morong, Bataan. The resort is big that it can accommodate big groups. I just went there for a seminar so I was not able to tour the whole place. My relatives always visit Parmata Bali Beach Resort which is also located in Morong, Bataan.

Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar
Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar is known as heritage resort where you can see different restored houses from different parts of the Philippines. When you entered the place, it seems that you’ve been transported to a different era. It is nice to see and learn the history of each house which I did not learn in my History class.
They do accept day trip and overnight guests but I suggest you stay in the resort so you can also use the swimming pool.
