Summer just started and everybody is really excited to go out and bask under the sun! Yes. Most of us are eyeing every beach destinations around the country for that perfect summer experience with family, friends and loved ones. The fairer and finer the sand, the better. The clearer and bluer the water, the better. The farther the destination, the better?
Destination: The Selection Process
We are a big family and only me and my older sister are the frequent travelers. Some of my brothers and sisters have their own family and have kids. So choosing the perfect destination is also a challenge whenever we have our family outing. I first thought of Morong but my sister disagreed because of the sand quality. Then we thought of going back to Bolinao but most resorts (including our first-choice Rock Garden Resort) are fully-booked. Few years ago, I already heard about Tambobong Beach in Dasol, Pangasinan. So I quickly checked it in Google maps and read some blogs to see what will be in store for us and hey, Cabongaoan Beach is just around the corner! My focus went to this spot in Burgos though there are only a few blogs/articles about this place. The beach looks great and not yet developed, so definitely it’s a perfect place to enjoy a great moment with the family yet it is affordable. So I informed my sister about the place and I won the selection. I tell you, this beach is very under-rated and unheralded by many.
Roven’s Place is every blogger’s choice to stay though I tried contacting a few like Cabo Beach Resort but everything is fully-booked. Kuya Inggo and Ate Venus Burlezza are really accommodating and their service to their guests are beyond expectation. Need water? Kuya Inggo will pump some water for you. You need kitchen utensils? Pronto! They will lend some for you to use with your cooking. He also make sure every part in the area is clean as he regularly collects garbages and disposed them properly.
Currently, they only have 5 rooms (kubo-type with fan) available for rentals at affordable price. Since we are a group of 20 with 6 kids in the group, we reserved and stayed at the big kubo (twin-room) that can accommodate up to 12 person for 2,500 pesos only and rented an additional cottage for 500 pesos. See? we only spent 3,000 pesos and enjoyed the whole weekend!
For back-packers, you can pinch your tent for 200 pesos or for a group of 4-6, you can choose the smaller kubo for 1,800 pesos (fan room inclusive of cottage attached to the room.)
Restrooms/shower rooms are communal but very clean. If you wish to book a room, their contact numbers are 0927-995-7606 and 0906-107-8860. Only Globe Telecoms is working in the beach area.
