Went here to attend a friend's wedding. Room price is okay for the place, can be shared by 4 adults since there were 2 beds in the room we got. Beautiful beach, friendly staff and good food.

Thunder bird resort in Poro Point is a good 5 hours away from Manila. The overnight stay we had was done during the rainy season. It came with a buffet breakfast, 30 minute massage, welcome fruit basket/ drinks and a casino voucher. The room was large, clean and even had kitchen/cooking facilities. The bathroom had a jacuzzi, shower- area is larger than a typical boutique hotel room in Hong kong.
The pool was first rate. I enjoyed swimming in it maybe because that is the only thing you can really do here if you are a non-golfer. Aside from staring at the China sea, beach activities are non existent- too many rocks.
Service was excellent. Staff was well trained. I'd spend more time here to relax if it was nearer. Also,one can stay here and use it as a stop when going farther to north Luzon.

My boyfriend and I attended a friend's wedding so we grabbed the chance to book a room as well. Though we stayed on the first floor we still had a beautiful view of the sea, the room offered an electronic safety deposit box ,mini bar, refrigerator, electric stove, microwave oven,cable TV with remote control,stereo with CD,DVD, and MP3, NDD/IDD phone system and a Jacuzzi.
We also enjoyed the free use of the swimming pool and a free wi-fi everywhere. Bikes are also available for free if you don't want to walk to look around the area.
This resort is good for couples and friends who just want to relax and unwind but not advisable for kids since the only way they can have fun is the pool, I'm not really very satisfied with the beach since you couldn't go barefoot because there are so many rocks on the sand.
If you want a taste of Greece, it's the easiest way to feel it...

The place has a very nice view overlooking the sea. For the rest it is an ok place for the price you pay. Good for a few nights when doing business or like to gamble but I wouldn't stay here for vacation with my kids. The only activity for them would be to play in the pool. In this part of Luzon you will find some great beach resorts where you can spend some time with similar great views and similar good food. Some of them a bit cheaper without much less to offer. Granted, the rooms are nice and spacious but there is no gym so all with all just about OK.

We travelled to Poro Point last September 16 to 18. It took us 7 hours to get there. Part of the drive is to stop for a meal and shopping at SM. We decided to take the trip because of the many good reviews I read about the place. The place is a Peninsula, it's surrounded by water but it's very hot. It's still in the development stage. They only have 16 rooms available, I think, but the rooms are big with 2 double beds, my room has a jacuzzi. Not much to see yet outside but the room certainly made up for the lack of it. The breakfast was also nice, buffet. Beside the hotel is a casino ( sadly we do not play) but they have a nice restaurant and their food is very good. The trip was an adventure.

Room Tip: Request a room on the 2nd floor, it has a balcony and the view is nice.

We stayed for 3d2n here and it was brilliant. Although it was raining the whole time, our stay was made brilliant by the beauty of the place and the friendliness and superb assistance of the staff. We want to back here in summer.
