I was to visit the Philippines for the first time and needed somewhere to stay, Bongavilla Beach Resort & Spa was recommended to me. I made the booking. As we had considerable luggage with us for our 3 week vacation, transport was provided by the resort to pick us up at Mactan Internatiional Airport on our arrival to take us to Bongavilla Beach Resort which was a 3 and a half hour drive. The transport was very comfortable and air conditioned. The driver kindly stopped for us en route for refreshments and a visit to a public convenience. Transport could also be provided for the return too. By the time we got to the resort we were made welcome and checked in. Our luggage were taken to our room. The upstairs of our accommodation had a dinning and living area, furnished with fridge, TV,and toilet, a balcony overlooking the pool and wonderful views of Negros Oriental across the strait. Downstairs was our bedroom, shower and toilet and air conditioned. From our room we walked onto a balcony with a stairway into the pool. The bedroom was clean, light and airy, the shower area was large with warm and cold water. Towels and toiletries were provided. We were shown a menu and gave the chef our orders of food and drink. It was around 5 pm when we arrived, by about 6:30 after having freshened ourselves up, we made our way to the dinning area where our table was laid and our meal and drinks served. On completion of our meal, orders were taken for our breakfast. Meals could be ordered on request. There was always a good choice on the menu and very tasty. I found the staff very friendly and helpful. We felt very much at home at Bonga Villa that we booked in there again this year and will be staying there again next year also. Bongavilla Beach Resort & Spa is filled with character, the surroundings tranquil with the chatter of birds and fishermen going about their fishing close by often greeting the guests with a friendly wave.its the sort of resort one can really relax and enjoy the peace and the natural surroundings..
