I was fortunate to avail of a voucher from Metrodeal for an overnight stay in Club Balai Isabel. The voucher includes:
- Lakeside Suite (fully equipped with TV, private balcony) for 4
- 3 luxury swimming pools
- Breakfasts for 4 people included
- 1 hour Kayak use
- All voucher holders will also get a 30% discount on water sports activities, 20% off on massages
- Free Balai Isabel cap
All for only Php5750 or Php1437.50/person. However, when we got there, we were only able to avail of the breakfast and use of swimming pool. In fact, we stayed in just 1 pool coz we were that satisfied. 🙂 We’re not really fond of kayaking and we didn’t bother to ask for the Balai Isabel cap.
Before our trip, I read a lot of negative posts/reviews for Balai Isabel so I was not expecting much when we went there. Good thing it turned out to be such a wonderful experience for us.
We used the public transpo going there. Just visit Club Balai Isabel‘s site for directions. The instructions are very helpful. We spent around Php140/person using the public transpo. Before riding the last tricycle ride going to Club Balai Isabel itself, we decided to eat near the tricycle station since I’ve read that food in Balai Isabel are a bit pricey. Lunch in a carinderia is around Php72. 🙂
Upon arriving at Balai Isabel, we were given our accommodation quickly (unlike some reviews that I read saying that it took long for some visitors to get their rooms). After fixing our things we decided to swim at once! We were awed by the beautiful sceneries from the pool. It’s breathtaking!
Food was okay (some reviews said it was not good) but quite pricey.
We enjoyed our sumptuous dinner there (Php235 each). 🙂 Then we had our free buffet breakfast in the morning. My sisters swam for the last time before we packed and headed back to Manila.
Total expenses: around Php2024.50
