Hut accomodation: Solomon's Place

We stayed in a hut where there is no lock on the door and the electric fan barely satisfy us but meh, it's worth the 200/pax a night.

Nice staffs

Calicdan Resort: Economical Option

Calicdan's is an unpretentious clean little resort with a spectacular view of Bolinao Sunrise and a stretch of creamy beach in front. If you want peace and quiet this is the place for you.

I had a very relaxing time just sitting on my veranda and gazing at the calm sea in front of me. The resort has a big sprawling talisay tree on one side where you can while away the heat of the day while reading your favorite book or just lolling around.

the offer fan rooms with ensuite bathroom and a family room with 2 bedrooms, kitchen and dining area. It is good for family overnight stay. The water in front is safe for kids.

Punta Riviera Resort: Bolinao Hospitality At Its Best

My nephew recommended Punta Riviera Resort to us, and after our wonderful stay there, I would definitely recommend it to our relatives, friends and colleagues.

Punta Riviera Resort is facing westward to the South China Sea, with the estuary of Ilog Malino (right infront of the Resort) joining the sea. Hence, its tagline is "Where the river meets the sea".

For accomodation, there are small and large cabanas with fans ranging from P1,800+ to P3,000+ and there are also many air-conditioned rooms to choose from, ranging from P4,500+ to P13,000+. We were billeted in a Sunset Room which was near the bridge going to the river and sea, and just a few steps to the infinity pool. A Sunset Room had air-conditioning unit, dvd, hot & cold shower, 2 big beds and a mattress. 4-5 persons are allowed in this type of room but actually, the mattress is good enough for 2 persons so a maximum of 6 can be accomodated. (I wonder why they limited the capacity to only 5.) Each Sunset Room had its own designated nipa hut-inspired cabana just infront of the door. We often had our meals served there. Guests in our neighboring room left their swimsuits and towels in their cabana to drip-dry. There was a roaming guard so no need to worry that you might lose things you leave in the cabana.

Normal rate for Sunset Room is P5,000+ but since it was off peak season, we were given a P1,000 discount plus 10% tax. The accommodation rate includes free Pinoy Breakfast which could be upgraded to American Breakfast; free 30-minute use of kayak, pool table and table tennis; free use of swimming pools and beach; free use of dvd's, free use of games and sports facilities including volleyball.

Great view of the sea and Ilog Malino; clear infinity pool; clean kiddie pool; beautifully landscaped garden; excellent and personalized customer service; pricey but delicious food; guarded parking area; coin operated Videoke/Karaoke; great river kayaking experience; awesome sunset at the seaside and sunrise at riverside; wide choice for type of room accommodation; Meeting Rooms and Conference Hall; well-lit and guarded compound in the evening; room service for massage, manicure and pedicure, etc.

Dutch Beach Resort: Most accomodating hosts

We stayed for two days and nights at the Dutch Beach Resort, an aging, basic beachfront resort in Bolinao, with very modest expectations. We were impressed by the staff's going out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We travelled the whole Patar road, up to the lighthouse, looking for appropriate accomodations and chose Dutch because from the onset, they showed a willingness to meet us halfway, sometimes more, budget and otherwise. The rooms were clean and functional. More importantly, they were built well enough to withstand a signal no. 3 typhoon (one of which did hit us on our 2nd afternoon)! Sonia and the rest of the staff stayed up all night, checking on our security, the integrity of the cottages, even seeing to our dietary needs as there was no way to get food anywhere that night. Thank you all! We'll be back!

Bing's: A lot to be desired...

We arrived at Bing's noon time on May 1 for a two night stay. We were billeted at the rooms across the road but reserved a "kubo" fronting the beach. As we were a bit early, we asked if the keys to our rooms were available to which the amiable receptionist replied with an apologetic "no". Understanding that there were still guests, we surveyed the beach front and other facilities. After 30 minutes I inquired again, only to find out that the keys were still unavailable, but the rooms were available...what's that? Apparently, it turns out that all the keys of the rooms were either unreturned or lost and that only a master key was on hand to open ALL the rooms. Your worst Security nightmare...more to come. Preview... Bartolina rooms, Karaoke blues, taking a bath in rust etc

Amiable personnel and owner. You will find the place clean every morning.

Experience Bolinao at Punta Riviera Beach Resort: D' Best of Bolinao

The barkada really enjoyed our stay here in Punta Riviera. The ambience is very relaxing and a perfect place to unwind. Although room rate is quiet expensive, it is very reasonable due to their new facilities.

I think this is one of the best beach resort in town!
They have a well-manicured lawn, a breezy balcony with lots of coconut trees that adds beauty in their lawn.
Their infinity pool is one of a kind and the most popular spot in the resort, at an angle, the pool looks as if it extends all the way to the sea. Especially during high tide when the river meets the sea.
Their room rate is quiet expensive but very reasonable due to their new facilities.
They also have cabanas, for day time tours. And also a function rooms for small group seminars.
They also offer complimentary breakfasts and free used of their facilities. With 30mins free kayaking in Ilog Malinao.
For early reservation, they are requiring a 50% down payment.

My stay was very pleasant, the staff is very accomodating. I was able to haggle for freebies.

- With pool (large & small)
- Beside the beach (see pic i posted in bolinao travel page)
- very good view of sunset
- Can make you stay for free in an affliated beach in Patar (not recommended)
- rooms are so ok in the pocket

Bing's Beach Resort: Cheaper Alternative

They have nipa rooms. A room with 2 big beds can accomodate 4, and the rate is 2,000 pesos. 1,800 if discounted. Not beach front , but they have a resto at the beach side. If budget is to consider , this place is highly recommended. It's near the Beautiful Patar Beach.

Garden Paradise Resort: Beach front rooms

I inquired and made an occular at gate 2, but did not stay since they don't have a swimming pool. The family room with 5 beds is 7,000 pesos (good for 10). If you haggle , you can get it for 5,000 if they don't have many guests. They have a billiard table.

Punta Riviera: Where the river meets the sea

It's a great place to stay especially if you have kids with you and you don't plan to sleep early. Though this resort is quite expensive, choosing to stay at Punta Riviera was a good decision on our part. My kids had a great time, they were able to enjoy the evening in the well lit pool, and we spent the rest of the evening in the garden. Had we chosen to stay at cheaper resorts, we would not have enjoyed the night as much as we did since most of the cheaper ones doesn't have pools, and the surroundings are quite dark, so there would be nothing much to do but wait for the sunrise.The place is nice, it has bar, swimming pool,viewdecks, videoke's. and massage area.They have free breakfast.
Though they claim to have rooms that can accomodate large groups , this is not at all reliable, 10-12 would mean 3 people would occupy one of the 4 double beds. Their family room for 10-12 has a room with 1 double bed and 2 interconnecting rooms with 3 double beds.
