Summer Fun with Mom and Kids

by - Monday, March 04, 2013

March is the beginning of summer here in the Philippines.  Hot weather is experienced now, generally that we need to plunge to water all the time.

It was an unscheduled activity yesterday, March 3, Sunday.  And the children are bored staying in the house facing and playing their android tablets all the time.  

SUMMER IS HERE!  Okay need to get that beach outfits that looks cool with this temperature.

Time to go to the beach and have that SUMMER FUN experience.



Knowing that we're late going to PARADISE ISLAND PARK and BEACH RESORT, we arrive their at 2PM and we only have 2hrs+ to enjoy our stay because last trip is scheduled at 5PM.


ENTRANCE FEE:  *PHp200 DAY TOUR
               (Adult and Kids Rate)
               *PHp300 BEACH OVERNIGHT
                  >PHp30 discount for SC









Actually my kids did not enjoy their swimming here because of our limited time and at the same time my camera got low bat.  Need to find place that let us enjoy more our summer outing and to charge my gadgets too.

So we've transfer our SUMMER FUN outing at GARDENS BY THE BAY(formerly Maryknoll)
just fronting SAMAL ISLAND.

They don't have beach swimming here only swimming pool.



Upon entering need to pay PHp50/each.  And PHp100 for the use of swimming pool.  Entrance fee is equivalent for food.  That is why if you want to go swimming you need not to bring baon.





Here my kids did enjoy their swimming. I too thanks the management for allowing me to charge my camera with no extra cost.





The place is inviting but don't have an attractive atmosphere what I love here is that all the staffs are approachable, friendly and smiling. Especially their lifeguards, though a bit strict for implementing rules but I'd like their presence.


    
The foods are great too.  They have a restaurant fronting the bay, that's why they call their place GARDEN BY THE BAY.







My children got hungry, need to use my 3 meal stubs courtesy from our entrance fee. Just present it to the cashier assigned and choose a dish equivalent from your pass. I choose 2 KINDS NOODLES amounting to PHp145.  And because the bringing of baon is not allowed in the pool (for me as their first time visitor they allow me to bring my siopao inside the pool as long as I have to buy drinks from their restaurant.  Okay no problem I do understand rules of business. Hahahahaha....

My orders were delivered by waiters to the pool area.


TWO-KINDS NOODLES
PHp145

SIOPAO (our baon from Shanghai Davao) PHp20/each
PEPSI 1.2 Liter   PHp75
Explosive bundles of fun just in time for summer and to have that relaxing moment with the kids and my mom I enjoyed it very much!

  4. Yes, as early as the first week of March, I have already felt summer as the scorching heat from the sun began to sink through my skin. That summer fun trip had been amazing I'm sure.

  6. Which one do you prefer swimming at the beach or swimming at the pool? My child likes to swim in both but I feel more at ease when he swims at the pool. I guess because its easier to watch him. One time we brought him to a dive trip, when we surfaced I found him swimming with the "bangkeros". He is such a merman. Hayz! Takes after his father I guess.

  13. The beach will always be my first love when it comes to swimming, you just can't beat eating kinilaw on the seaside. The resort looks nice though and affordable.

  23. A dip at the pool this summer is indeed a great experience. ad naman that you and your kids don't enjoy your limited stay at Paradise. However, you have good bargain sa next stop nyo. The place seems okay and the rate, so cheap.

  26. It's been so long since we went to Paradise. Although we haven't been to Maryknoll. Wherever we are, Davao has a lot of places to offer this summer, whatever our budget may be. :)
