Staycation: The Beautiful PalmBeach Resort & Spa at Mactan, Cebu

Staycation: The Beautiful PalmBeach Resort & Spa at Mactan, Cebu

As a wanderer, a place to stay during times of roaming around a place is one of the things that should be taken into consideration. I am not picky when it comes to choosing a place to rest but your girl needs her bedtime sleep to produce quality pictures and reviews, right? So, I should note the comfort a certain place gives.

Aside from wandering, I also just want to chill. I am opening up this section of my blog entitled ” Staycation” where I highlight places that I slumber when I need to recharge. Charot!

So this weekend, I chose to spend my time at Palmbeach Resort and Spa.

As all of you did not know, I just spent the last day of july and first day of august with a flu. Yes, you read it right, A BAD FLU. I actually dread the coming of the weekend because of it. I tried my best to heal by eating right and sleeping on time. Luckily, my fever subsides a day before our staycation.

What to expect about the PalmBeach Resort & Spa?

The PalmBeach Resort & Spa is medium-far from the city so expect it to be serene and peaceful. A lot of foreigners are in the area because this place is an entry point to scuba diving.

The place itself is not that quite big compared to its nearby hotels but the rooms are very spacious and clean. It can totally accommodate a lot of person especially the Suite Room. I can really say that the price for the room is worth it.

The staffs of the resort are very accommodating. They always respond to us; guests and they always wear that beautiful smile. It totally makes you comfortable.

The receptionists are very helpful too. My friends and I enjoyed a hassle-free check-in. We just waited for a few minutes and then off we go to our room.

They also have a printed copy of the Television Channels.

What to do in the Resort?

1. Have a dip in the Swimming Pools
swimming pool palmbeach resort  spa

The sky is clear pa here. We were welcomed by a drizzle but it did not hinder us from dipping in the pool.

They have 2 swimming pools. The elevated one (see above picture) and the hagdan-hagdan pool (called it that because its like that for me). Also, they have a jacuzzi! We were supposed to try it but did not because of the rain (sorry rain but I blame you for that).

6pm, we went back here because we wanted to swim during night time cause its romantic and we did not see anyone swimming in the pool. So mga ate niyo nag grab na ng chance to have a dip in the pool. We really own the pool that night.

Then we open the Welchs sparkling wine *my fave wine*. We took a really long video and you could really hear and see that the rain poured while we were still sipping wine and enjoying our time. We luckily took some nice photos but will just share some of it in Instagram.

I still love the rain but ofcourse, we stopped because I might get sick again. We don’t want that happening, right?

2.Try Scuba Diving with Friends

3.Relax at Massage Spa

Haven’t tried the spa but I saw someone coming in and out. It must be good.

4.Eat a lot at Sunrise Cafe
Palmbeach Resort & Spa Restaurant

The buffet breakfast foods served were Scrambled Egg, Macaroni, Chicken Hotdog, Chicken, Veggies, Juices, Pancakes, Bread with Jams, Fruits, Juices and Teas.

I can say that their food were in great quality. Nabusog po kami! I wanted to eat another round but my stomach was full.

Overall Thoughts

Palmbeach Resort & Spa

If I am someone visiting Mactan Island and wants to Scuba dive or chill, I would definitely consider PalmBeach Resort and Spa. The resort is just near 30 mins from the airport and 20 mins away from Mactan Malls. Also, one of the best thing that I love about this resort is that there is a 7-Eleven store in front of the building. It’s pretty convenient and you don’t need to go far to purchase something in the middle of the night.

The view from our room window is also amazing.

Tip: If you want to see the boats, parasailing or people going scuba diving, choose the room that faces it. Ask the resort about it. My friends and I were lucky to be in a room that has all.

I would definitely love to stay in PalmBeach Resort & Spa again. This time, I’ll bring my family too.
