When one mentions Cordova, island-hopping is definitely one of the things that come into mind. However, staying in resorts and even floating cottages can be a fun activity as well while you’re in this lovely part of Cebu. One example is El Nero Floating Cottage.
Located in Bantayan Bay, Cordova, Cebu, this floating cottage is the newest and an amazing place to stay, refresh and unwind at reasonable prices. With each floating cottage intricately made with local and traditional materials such as bamboo wood, this type of design can surely give you that well-sought island vibes.
Each floating cottage can be booked exclusively and they have their own usual amenities such as tables, chairs, a dining area, a cooking area, own comfort rooms, and a wide-open space so that you can see the beauty of Cordova.
For the kids, an improvised “pool” with a net underneath is accessible and safe. This allows wary parents to look after their kids easier.
They also don’t charge corkage fees when you rent one of their own cottages. This gives visitors freedom to eat whatever they want while spending their day here. The pork “sinugba” is a must when it comes to beach trips, and grilling here is more than possible as they provide a grilling area.
The place is perfect for various team activities such as team buildings, family bondings, friends gathering, birthday celebrations and even reunions.
The intimate vibe offered by each cottage is really a plus for those who want to celebrate an occasion with their loved ones exclusively.
