It’s sad when busy schedules aren’t able to accommodate that long and dreamy vacation that everyone’s been waiting for.
Good thing, 7Es Pilapil Park Resort is situated just an hour away from Cebu City.
This quick getaway resort is nestled by the roadside and near the bridge of Catarman, Liloan. Despite being by the roadside, the actual resort inside is surrounded by luscious plants and trees that provide enough verdancy for a relaxing natural background and gives the space some seclusion, removing any trace of the city from the inside.
The pebbled ground and stone footpaths lead the guests towards the swimming pool shimmering with bright blue colors and rustic rooms made of bamboo and nipa roofs. Both the beach and the pool area are equipped with nipa hut cottages that can accommodate a fair amount of people and they come complete with benches and tables.
Lining the perimeter of the pool are lounge chairs that are perfect for basking under the sun after a refreshing dip in the pool. Otherwise, they can spend their downtime just observing the koi fishes swim in the fish pond at the corner.
If guests prefer fun activities with everybody then they can sing and jive on the videoke machines that are available in the resort. Food won’t be a problem since the owners also installed a convenience store just by the pool but certain drinks come with corkage fees so it would be better to purchase drinks from the store.
Outside the main resort is a public beach that is frequented by locals and travelers alike. The beach area is exposed near the roadside but the shallow water is spacious enough to accommodate a lot of people. During high tides, the waters rise up to the level of the seaside cottages with ankle-deep waters that kids enjoy splashing in.
The nipa hut rooms offer the privacy and security that the guests need and they are extremely relaxing as well. They are all equipped with air conditioning, comfortable beds, and curtain-covered windows. What’s more, the rooms are connected to bamboo porches with benches and tables for the guests to relax in especially in the morning after waking up. Nothing can be more peaceful than spending a minute or two soaking in the morning air while sipping coffee on the porch.
