We searched for a place to stay and the only one coming up is the Tamarind Tree Resort. If we had known about Villa Anita we might consider it as well. Maybe our expenses will turn out cheaper. 🙂
Located in Padre Burgos in Quezon, the Tamarind Tree Resort offers native style type accommodation. Rooms classified as hill top, beachside, beachside (aircon). We were able to get the hill top fan room since the cheapest accommodation we can get. We overlooked the rate we saw online. We thought its 800php per room. When we arrived at the resort its per person. The cash money we have were just enough for food, accommodation and boat rental. Staff provides mosquito net in rooms. For food, it covered dinner, breakfast and lunch. We paid 3692php for the two of us. After we checked out the following day we have to go to SM Lucena to withdraw. That’s the only place with an ATM Machine.
The resort is oceanfront. There’s a huge tamarind tree near the pool. We had the resort for ourselves. Were the only one there. It’s quiet at night and you can only hear sounds of crickets, geckos and frogs. Typical province at night. There’s a 24-hour security guard so you’ll feel safe even if deafening silence almost kills us. Nothing much to do in the area at night.
We arrived at the resort almost lunch time since we’re walked in guest they don’t have food to serve us. We walked to Padre Burgos town proper and had lunch at one of their local carinderia. For the less than a 100php we had lunch for both of us.
Back at the resort they served a hefty serving of food. We love their set meal. It’s always with dessert or fruits. No drinks though. You have to order separately. Even coffee. Here are pictures of our meals. Not able to take a picture of our dinner though.
The resort also has its own outdoor pool. We tried swimming at night after island hopping but the sound of frogs and geckos plus the silent night made us backed out. We enjoyed the pool the next day.
Staff at the resort are hospitable. They were all nice. Especially Kuya Peng who always checked with us. He almost jumped in to the pool when he thought Grace is drowning. 😀 If you’re looking for a comfortable place to stay that provides all your needs I would suggest this place.
