How was your Holy Week? I hope you have reflected and thanked the man above for all the blessings He has given. I also hoped you spent it well with the ones you love most. My Holy Week was great but I’m here to share with you today the continuation of our March 2017 Getaway.
Our first stop was Camp Netanya (Read Part 1 here, and Part 2 here). After spending a night there we transferred to Eagle Point Resort which was just 7 minutes away after having lunch at OMG! (Olvida & Myra’s Grill). You know naman my sister who calls herself Anney, she can’t stay two days at the same resort. Gusto nya iba-iba. Yeah, nakakapagod….. but we’re used to it.
Anyway, we’ve already been to Eagle Point Resort three years ago (Read Part 1 here, and Part 2 here). I was the one who did the driving. The kids were so small back then and we were with sis’s friends.
This time, we were with peanutbutter♥ my love. AT nakalimutan ko na kung gaano katarik ang papunta sa resort!
I remember the last time sis booked us a deluxe room at the terrace hotel side which was kinda new. This time sis booked us two deluxe cottages with a double bed and extra mattress. It cost us ₱10,118 for two cottages. The cottages were air-conditioned but there was no cable tv plus the a/c can only beat the heat at night time.
Toiletries were the basic: soap, shampoo, and conditioner. There was no phone and we had to go to all the way to the front desk which was a log walk from the cottages, when we needed something .. like wifi and electric kettle. You can get wifi access for ₱150/24 hours.
One thing we love about the cottage is that the veranda opens up to the view of the sea and there were lots of trees around. It was such a joy to be able to breathe in fresh air!
We went out of our room at around 3 pm and went to the South End Pool. We never stayed here during our first stay because it was too far a walk from our room. This time, this is the nearest pool.
Solo namin ang swimming pool that day!
The kids enjoyed their swim. They’re used to sis bombarding them with lots of photo opps and poses….heehee.
Dinner was of course at Eagle’s Nest Bar and Resto, Eagle Point Resort’s only resto. We had dinner at around 6pm.
I had the Gado-Gado Salad which was an Indonesian Salad that I like and sis hated.
peanutbutter♥ ordered the Pork Sinigang which he shared with Ykaie.
Sis ordered the Adobong Pusit (again. she ordered one at Camp Netanya too! Everday pusit!)
and pizza for Cyra, Cyvrine, and Lani.
Their drinks were Mango Shake and Calamansi Juice
The kids were knocked out after dinner.
We woke up to a breakfast buffet of garlic rice, tocino, potatoes, spanish sardines, ham omellete, different kinds of bread, butter, and jam. This are sis’s plate. I remember eating potatoes, sardines, and omellete but everything was oily…huhuhu.. and I was trying to avoid oil that day.
Syempre pasyal-pasyal muna after breakfast… hala sige, pose dito, pose doon.
After 20 minutes of pasyal, costume change na. Swimsuit ulit!
This time, we went swimming at the two level main pool of Eagle Point Resort. The top pool is shallow and is more of a kiddie pool. It features a waterfall and access to a slide for both children and adults, the slide connects both pools together.
heehee, Twinkle was still sleepy…
This is the waterfall I was telling you about.
Twinkle was scared of the waterfalls…
…. but enjoyed this puddle of water here.
Check out our crazy video!
The pictures look great, it looks like you had a great time with the family.

The Eagle Point Resort looks like so much fun with lots to do and … that beautiful view! I have to say I also loved your video. That was so well done, edited and with great music. It all shows what a fabulous time the whole family had and this would be somewhere I would love to bring my family also.
Aww this looks like a wonderful place for a family vacation! I’m saving up to take my family to the Philippines first but I have a whole bucket list of places to go with my family! I will definitely have to add this to my list!

Jessica Taylor says
Eagle Point Resort looks amazing! Such beautiful views! Looks like you and your family had an awesome time!
I bet Camp Netanya was so much fun! It’s pretty convenient that Eagle Point Resort was so close too! Loved your pictures, it was if we were right there with you!
What a gorgeous place to go on holiday! I spent Holy Week walking 127 miles along Hadrian’s Wall in England, lol! I much would have preferred to lounge by the pool!
Elizabeth O. says
It’s awesome that you got to spend your Holy Week in not one but two resorts! I can only imagine how exciting that must have been especially for the kids. This resort looks lovely.
Amanda Love says
I wouldn’t mind staying for the weekend in a place like this. I’d love to dip in that pool especially when the summer sun hits! I think this place is beautiful and it’s definitely worth going to.
E H says

Angela Bethea says
Wow, that sounds really fun! I was so jealous when I saw your photos of the food. I absolutely love Sinigang na Baboy. I really miss it! Looking forward for my vacation in the Philippines.
