    Review: Puerto Del Sol Beach Resort in Bolinao Pangasinan

    With his family in tow, comfortably seated in a shiny, new red Toyota Innova, which he christened Scarlett, Tutubi went to visit the tip of Pangasinan peninsula north of Manila on a roadtrip to celebrate his nth birthday. His destination, one of the three high-end resorts in Bolinao, Pangasinan: Puerto del Sol, Punta Riviera and Treasures of Bolinao. He chose Puerto del Sol (meaning: "gate of the sun" in Spanish) for this one though he intends to visit the latter two resorts in the future.

    Located about an hour drive from the Hundred Islands city of Alaminos, Bolinao stands at the tip of Pangasinan peninsula with a string of resorts in Barangay Ilog Malino up to Barangay Patar (with it's white sand beach). Welcome to Puerto del Sol: Tutubi's home for 3D/2N for his birthday with loved ones.

    Pictures of Puerto del Sol Beach Resort, Bolinao, Pangasinan:

    Review of Puerto del Sol Beach Resort:

    Facilities: excellent and family-friendly. Large swimming pool with a lighted jacuzzi you can enjoy for a few hours everyday.

    Room Rate: Expensive. You get your money's worth but not fit for backpackers who opt to explore places, not stay in expensive resorts. Tutubi rented two rooms for 3D/2N and imagine how much he spent for his family (9 in all including his sister and nephew) but family bonding time is simply-- priceless!
    Parking: free parking in front of the resort, open yet guarded by resort security

    Food: nothing to rave about, breakfast is ok but the food is so-so. Restaurant menu prices will easily cost you about PhP300/person. Tutubi went out of the resort to enjoy cheaper meals for his big entourage.

    Beachfront: Ilog Malino Beach is nowhere near Patar White Beach in terms of sand quality but the presence of a breakwater makes it safe even for children to play around (though they still have to closely guarded)

    Lastly and as always, this is not a sponsored post and thus an independent review of Puerto Del Sol Beach Resort in Bolinao, Pangasinan.
