Filipinos love spending quality time with their loved ones. My mom always tells me that no trip is the same if the family isn’t complete. And in the Philippines, a family is not just composed of the parents and children -- it includes your grandparents, aunts, uncles, and even your cousins of the nth degree. With a huge selection of family getaways in the Philippines, it can be quite a challenge to find a place that has the best facilities for the entire fambam. Fret not! I've done the research of finding the best stays with exciting amenities fit for your clan!

What makes it a great place to stay is its Family Room, a loft type accommodation that comes with a stunning panoramic view of the ocean.
