Sometimes there are travels which are unplanned which will push through when time and resources connives with what the majority want. Just like this one long weekend when we went to a beach resort in Sariaya, Quezon, it was an unplanned trip to the beach with the family, it just emanated when one of my daughter simply would like to go for a swim in our clubhouse but her sister want to go out of town on a weekend and suddenly I want to go to the beach. Finally we ended our conversation in going to a beach resort within a short proximity from Metro Manila. Our choices were Batangas, Olongapo and Quezon, but the latter won the vote because we haven’t been to any beaches in Quezon.
We found Villa Del Prado beach resort through my friend Mr. Google, Lol! He has always been my best advisor for places to go. When I checked their rate it is very affordable and the amenities in their website are pretty much enticing but we have to see if its the same in reality.
Travel time to Sariaya, Quezon from our location in Cainta is four hours drive. We left the house at 5:00 a.m. took the C-5 road through South Luzon Expressway, turned right to Calamba Interchange and took the highway all the way through Santo Tomas, Batangas, Alaminos up to San Pablo City straight to Tiaong,Quezon and after the town of Candelaria is the town proper of Sariaya, Quezon. From the Maharlika highway we just followed the sign board of the resort which is posted at every intersection which took us thirty minutes to locate the site.
An impressive and enticing view of swimming pool welcomed us at the entrance of the resort, the blue water of the pool is so inviting for me but the children are more excited to get on the loops. We took a stroll first inside so we can decide where to start our activity since it was still early we have time to have a swim before preparing our food for lunch.
