Think of a Vacation at Camp Holiday Resort & Recreation Area #DavaodelNorte #IGACOS #SamalIsland

by - Thursday, January 14, 2016

Escape the ordinary and have a satisfying adventure and relaxing stay you'll never forget. With just a little bit of preparation for a day that's sure to be nothing but fun in the sun and having a good time with families at CAMP HOLIDAY RESORT & RECREATION AREA



Headed to Sasa Ferry terminal and ride a barge for 10 to 15 minutes for only PHp10.



And arrived at Barangay Kinawitnon, Babak District Samal Island in Davao del Norte.

The barge going to Babak Ferry Wharf is next to the resort. Actually, a walking distance from Babak Ferry Terminal.



My two daughters and my mom were very excited, for it's their first time to ride on a barge and see the resort.



Upon entering, a receptionist will ask you if you're going to be a guest for a DAY TOUR or for an OVERNIGHT stay. They have a good choice of accommodation and all the facilities are walkable. 


For us, we're here for a DAY TOUR!

  1. ADULT Fee >>> PHp80/pax net
  2. CHILD Fee (6-12 years old) >>> PHp50/pax net
Inclusive: FREE USE of swimming pool and open cottages.

I read a lot of negative reviews about this place, but in my experience I wasn't disappointed with their services. After we pay for our entrance, we are escorted by a guard to look for a nice spot for us. That time the place is so quiet, they have number of guests, but not that many.

Because we don't bring food, so we stay in their in-house restaurant serving sumptuously affordable dishes.



The restaurant is very typical Filipino service -- a bit slow but very friendly. What I don't like about it is that when food is being served, lot's of bugs coming in which is very annoying. The friendly-staff give us a small candle and light it in order to keep the bugs away. :)

The beach is very clean and the pool water is clear and warm.

SWIMMING POOL for KIDS

BTW, the swimming pool here is for kids alone. Adult can use their infinity pool if you are going to stay for overnight.

Right beside the Kiddie Pool is a Playground, wherein your kids will enjoy.

And if you want to have an overnight stay, NO PROBLEM! They have colorful cottages that suits your preference.


The whole resort is perfect though it's not that luxurious but the simplicity and serenity of the place makes me to come back again and stay. I definitely recommend CAMP HOLIDAY RESORT & RECREATION AREA to everyone who will visit Samal Island.



What a lovely day to start a new year, wherein you don't have enough time in any way to think about what to do for tomorrow. Just a pure RELAXATION, having FUN and to feel the humbleness of making a real difference full of gratitude and LOVE with your close family.

  5. Can kids also swim at the infinity pool? I just thought there must be a pool as well where a family with kids can stay and enjoy. ;)

  17. The design of this place makes it look welcoming and friendly. Some very serious looking resort design makes them look forbidding and expensive.
