I've dropped by golden sunset resort by ricky reyes and I should say that this is a well marketed place. Although I find it superficially man made and there is no beach to talk about (does not matter if your not a beach person). Also, I don't believe that they can claim this as world-class, although I could say that kudos to the effort to make it like an Island Cove resort in Cavite. Although, they also have a view of the golden sunset in Playa Calatagan and hence the name of the resort.
Here are the overnight stay rates for this resort:
Air conditioned rooms during peak season (Mar 16-Jun 15, Nov. 30-Dec.31)
- Standard (1-2 guest): P3,080
- Deluxe room with loft (1-4 guest): P4,180
- Garden Cove with loft (2-6 guest): P4,950
[ Note: It is 9% cheaper during Regular season or 18% cheaper during lean season (June 16-Oct.15) ]
The rate includes:
- Entrance Fee ( P100)
- Breakfast for two (2)
- Admission to Butterfly Sanctuary (P50)
- Use of swimming pool and welcome drinks ( P100)
They have a day pass of P200 ( P100 entrance fee + P100 food consumables) or P300 ( P100 entrance fee + use of pool and volleyball)
One thing I could say is that its great to have a lot of activities in this resort including Fishing, Boating, Biking, playing Billiards, Videoke, and of course swimming. I was interested with the golden resort not because of its man-made facilities but the serendipity spa which I plan to try during one of my trips back to Playa Calatagan.
I actually don't mean to promote Golden Sunset (hopefully not cause it is just a well marketed resort). But for those who are looking for an alternative to Laiya, San Juan Beaches or Nasugbu, Beaches, this is a sort of alternative. It does not really qualify since it does not have a beach, but that is fine with you, then check this place out.
