As far as I can remember, this Holy Week is the longest vacation I had at nataon na kasama pa ang Saturday and Sunday. So it is super long weekend for me. And this is also the busiest in my working life kaya ako na mismo ang nagsabi sa wife ko na – “tara, let’s drive a long way from where we are right now! Just like what our mga kauri does, the hay society. Watyathink?!”. Tinitigan lang ako ng aking asawa at di kumibo so that meant- Yes! We are going on a journey with our Innova, not J, not E, but G!
We initially wanted to go to China for this long vacation pero because of the news na maraming nag boycott or mga nag leave na employees ng Bureau of Immigration as relayed in this news
we decided to go local, ang hirap kaya ma stuck sa NAIA. Late naman na if I will donate the salaries of the employees so that they can go back to work. I did not have time to do it kasi.
So the solution was to do hotel scouting by making a few calls here and there. Most are fully booked. I called this resort that earlier said na fully booked sila and they again said na fully booked nga daw sila but when I told them that my wife’s family own part of the Scarborough Shoal, we were accommodated. Talk about being alta.
So off we go to China!
China Sea Beach Resort is located in Bauang, La Union and is just around 57 kilometers away from where we live, the City of Baguio.
We were able to get the last room available and we booked it 3 days before arrival by depositing the payment to their bank account. Before arrival, i checked with them if they received the money and they confirmed. Upon arrival, we were asked to show them the deposit slip. I found it weird because they already received the money as they confirmed earlier. I asked them again if they received a copy of the deposit slip through e-mail and they said “yes”. So I don’t get it. They should have just asked for our identification to make sure that the person who deposited the money is the same person who is checking in. Hassle lang but all is well. 🙂
So how is it in China?
I’m writing this on our second day of stay so these are the things worth noting so far:
There is space for our son’s playtime too…
I brought some work so I needed to do a little research sana but wifi is not that strong. The good thing is I discovered how to write my blogs straight through my phone! Malakas signal ng globe dito so I am still thankful.
Your booking comes with free breakfast…
After breakfast, we have to eat lunch of course…4 days 3 nights kaya ito. Haha
So, our lunch…
All in all, our stay is worthwhile. We are very thankful to Rhea, one of their front desk staff for taking time to call us and inform us na merong nag cancel.
Out of 5 stars, I give this stay four (4) stars. Five (5) sana but the pool was not that maintained during this visit.
4 goes to excellent customer service. Despite being fully booked, they are on time with our food orders (hindi kasi masyado madami?) haha. Mababait sila, wala ako masabi.
Plus i got to capture the sun set!
So will we come back again? Definitely, YES. I would love to experience sunrise, sunset, sea breeze and the courteous people over and over again.
Till next hotel and resort visit!! So hotels and resorts, watch out for the hay society surprise visit!
The photos below are taken during our last afternoon. Our stay will not be complete without us witnessing the sunset’s love story with the ocean and the boats.
