Month of November year 2016 when I decided to celebrate my birthday at the beach. It was all my plan and I really wanted to treat myself a break and have some private moment with the sea. With my boyfriend we decided to buy Metro deal voucher and picked the deal at canyon cove for 2999 good for 2 days and 1 night for 2 person.
We don’t usually go that far for an overnight stay, usually kasi somewhere in laguna lang kami ng stay when we wanted to relax away from busy working schedule, kaya we are not familiar with the area. After we got the confirmation from the hotel itself, I looked for reviews about the resort and how to get there, good thing is lahat naman positive.
From starmall crossing, ride a bus going to coastal mall where there are lots of bus going to batangas via tagaytay for 175 pesos each. From Nasugbu proper (the last stop of bus-kaya di ka maliligaw) there are lots of tricycle that will ask you, a lot of blogs nagsabi na wala talagang byahe na jeep so you really need to take a pricey tricycle-sulit naman kasi malayo yung resort at medyo looban pa. The tricycle is 200 pesos one way for 4 person, pero dahil dalawa lang kami 150 nalang. Mabait yung mga tricycle driver, we arrived at Nasugbu at around 12nn kaya medyo advance kami so we took our lunch somewhere in the area, and the driver waited us for 1 hour without any extra charge. We decided to wait nalang sa mismong resort para hindi mainit and we are very excited to see the place for it was both our first time in the beach together.
Dumating kami sa Canyon Cove at past 1pm, naginquire muna kami but we are surprised that the personnel already handed our room keys even it wasn’t our time yet.
The room was spacious and has a beachfront view. Nagulat ako na what I have seen in the pictures are very similar, may mga resort kasi na sa picture lang malinis at sa picture lang maganda kasi it was already edited for a reason. But this resort is different, you will see that it was a high end Resort, it was peaceful and a perfect getaway. Hindi pa kami lumalabas ng room, only the view will already give you the justice of what you have paid for.
Snorkling was fun! and witnessing sun set is a great experience. The Beach itself are clean so with the pool. It was big and you can have private talks with your company anywhere. We really enjoyed our first day at the beach kaso nakakabitin kasi at 6pm the beach will be close for the guest for safety, while pool will be close at 9pm. Okay lang naman for the two of us kasi we just really wanted to sit and talk to each other with a nice view.
We took our dinner in the resto inside the Resort. A little bit pricey but you have no choice, when I read about the rules of the resort, it is clear that they will not allow the guest to have their own food that purchased outside the resort. But as I have observed, they never check the bags, dapat nagdala nalang kami ng kahit konting snack manlang. Hay..
Breakfast was good. Unlimited coffee is heaven! Each meal for breakfast starts at 250 pesos each inside the resto. It will be best sana if you can prepare your own breakfast and eat it in cottage at the beach front.
Overall our mini vacation is great! We really had fun there. If you are a party person and wanting to go to the beach for a midnight party, the place is not for you. It is only for those who wanted a quiet time and a private moment.
If you are planning to take a deal in Canyon Cove, please be reminded that the overall experience will always be depending on how you expect the place. The Key factor is that just enjoy every trip, always look for good things first before complaining 🙂
