Where I stayed
Pearl Farm Beach and Resort

Flag of Philippines  , Davao,
Tuesday, May 11, 2010

Settling in the southern part of Davao City, Philippines lies a paradise. Less than an hour boat travel from city wharf. Selecting the best resort will confuse the traveller of where to stay in.
Pearl Farm is a private resort which helped me to relax. I admit that its quietly expensive but my stay there for two days is worth for the price. Pearl Farm has its own private Marina wharf where we boarded a boat going to the resort. A cold and refreshing pina colada was given to us as welcome drink while their friendly staff gave us briefing about the resort and its facilities.

Accomodation. We preferred to stay on hilltop "balay"accommodation for its various natural views. A breath taking scenarios of beach, Parola bar, Malipano island, and famous Mount Apo. Next time, when I come back, I'll try the Samal House built on top of the water. The room is with native and tribal decors with a personal refrigerator full of chocolates, chips, and beverages. Wow! but they have prices, its not compliments.

Fun. The Resort's Aqua Sports Center offered us island hopping and snorkeling for three hours. Included in the rental are towels, speed boat, guide, and snorkeling equipments. We enjoyed the island hopping especially to Malipano Island and sight seeing of marine life by snorkeling. However, the sea that time is little bit itchy so we can't stay longer in the water.
Starting at 6pm, cocktails in Parola bar is 50% off, so it's the time for a little talk while watching the sea on sunset.

Food.Good buffet food with variety of seafood especially during dinner. Native group  performed at night starting 7pm that will last for almost two hours.

Expenses. A bit expensive. I settled all bills during check out. I availed Bed and Breakfast which prices varied is in their site
Free WIFI in the resort.
Payment can be settled with cash or credit card.
