Endless Summer in Canyon Cove

We had staycation in our home last holiday break, no grand vacation for us but at least I had time to finish my “things to do” list before the end of the year.

After Christmas, my husband told my son that they will swim in our Clubhouse but when he went to Admin office, walang pumasok na staff. So nag long vacation na rin sila. He was so disappointed because there was no notice that there will be no office on December 26. And because nagpromise na siya, we need to swim. #trustissue 

Since it was a last minute decision, we were choosing from the resorts that we have tried in Batangas. Check it here. We chose Canyon Cove again because both pool and beach are nice. Nasugbu is also near, paglagpas lang ng Tagaytay. 

He called the resort and asked if they accept day tripper and the staff said yes. He called his mom to ask if they want to join and off we went to Canyon Cove the following day, December 27, 2015 at 5:30AM. At the gate, the guard told us na fully booked na daw sila but we told him na day trip lang kami.



After parking, the guard ushered us to the Day Tour Counter and he even helped me in carrying some of my stuff. Medyo malayong lakaran siya ha, dati may kiosk lang sa labas, now nasa loob na ng building. I did not bother to check the rates because we just went there last March 2015 so I was really surprised when the staff told me, Ma’m P4500 lang po itong cash. P5500 pala ang total. Toinks!

Most of the time, my son prefers the pool because may shark daw sa beach. Hehehe! But after we went to Acuatico Beach Resort and Hotel, love na niya beach. 



So after several minutes in the pool, he wanted to go to the beach na. He enjoyed playing in the sand. 





Then we ate in Island Cafe (Max’s) for our lunch, we ordered Chicken and Spaghetti for my son because he likes the chicken, Chopsuey, Kare-Kare, Pork Binagoongan and Halo-Halo for dessert. 



Then we spent most of our time in the beach so it is better if you bring blanket so even you do not have cottage, you can stay under the trees. 



If you prefer pool, there are tents there where you can stay beside the restaurant.

This was our last travel last 2015.

  6. Awww.... I miss going to the beach while reading your post. With the kids, I always want a pool to be included because sometimes they get tired of the beach and just want to dip in a cool swimming pool.

    1. I think so but I think it is better to call just to make sure that you can have a day trip on your preferred date. :)

  12. Ask ko lang po if accessible po ba yung lugar for commuters? Lalo na kung pauwi po? Balak po kasi namin pumunta for day tour only. Thank you!

    1. Mukha naman accessible kasi kita mo na resort sa daan. Sabihin mo lang sa konduktor kung san kayo punta then pwede niya kayo ibaba kung san pwede sumakay ng trike going to Canyon Cove. May napansin kasi ko na nagtrike dun. :)
