Summer Getaway With The Love Of My Life

I cannot wait for our next vacation to the Philippines again.  Hubby said it will be any time soon.  Weee!  I hope we will get the chance to go to my favorite beach resort, Coco Beach Island Resort in Oriental Mindoro.  I fell in love with the resort the first time I set foot on the island.  And it was also the first time meeting the love of my life five years ago.  That was our wonderful summer getaway.

Coco Beach Island Resort is a serene place.  We stayed in a Heritage room because that is the only type of room with air conditioner.  Standard and Deluxe rooms are cheaper.  Suite and Hilltop rooms have the same rates like the Heritage’s.  It was kind of pricey before because they charged the room rate per person.  But as per the resort’s May 2012-April 2013 Published Rates, they are charging per room per night inclusive of accommodation, breakfast, service charge and tax.  I think their new rates are reasonable and I like it!  I feel like making a reservation now.  🙂

Hubby and I enjoyed hanging out, beach hopping, snorkeling, and shopping and of course, the romantic times were precious.  Coco Beach  Resort also offers fun dives and unlimited diving.  i highly recommend this beach resort as vacation destination in the Philippines.

And oh, I love the Silent Pool.  Sshhh… 🙂

My Favorite Resort

I always look forward to summer because we get the chance to go to a resort and enjoy the season.  My husband and I love swimming and snorkeling.  There was a couple of times we went snorkeling back home.

Aside from that, I also like swimming in the pool.  It feels refreshing to get into the water especially in the morning.  My favorite resort in the Philippines, Coco Beach, has the serene pool area.  They call it Silent Pool :).  It is located on top of the hill.  The pool liners of the swimming pool are so cool in the eyes.  The water looks like seawater in color.  So when swimming in it, it feels like I am at the beach too.  Oh, I missed home.  I miss everything back home.

We are looking forward to our next vacation in two years.  God help us.

Coco Beach Resort’s Spectacular Charm

I love summer. When this season of the year comes, what I have vision in my mind is the enchanting picture of spending a vacation at the beach. Just thinking about it brings back memories from the summer get-away I spent in Coco Beach with my husband last year.
Coco Beach Resort is one of the most beautiful vacation spot in the Philippines. It is located in one of the beautiful coves of Puerto Galera, in the historical island of Oriental Mindoro. Here in the old days, Spanish galleons passed by trading routes between Europe, Mexico and the East.
Getting there is simple. We took the Coco Beach Express transport service of the resort in Manila. They are very sharp in departure times.
The first time I stepped on this laid-back and stunning island, I fell in love with it. It is a place where the sea is blue, corals and fishes in different colors and shape, and the hills full of coconut palms swaying with the breeze. There is a pool on top of the hill which they call the silent pool because place’s calm ambiance. People who have passion in diving will definitely love this place because there are lots of diving sites. I am so amazed watching the divers walk towards their boat, wearing their diving suits and gears, then head to their diving destination. We stayed there for six days in Deluxe Heritage rooms. Coco Beach truely offers the largest facilities in Puerto Galera. We enjoy ourselves in beach and bar hopping, shopping, dining, walking along the beach, and of course, snorkeling. The rum chocolate ice cream at Le Bistro Bar and the “sinigang” (pork with vegetables in tamarind soup) at Bondi’s Restaurant is awesome. I told myself, this is the dream place where I want to settle someday. Perfectly, this is the only one true nature paradise on Earth.
