I've been wanting to go to the beach recently. For someone living in Legazpi City, you will be surprised that for anything water-related, I would still want to go somewhere far like Sorsogon, when in fact, we are living in the bay area. Embarcadero is just a few kilometer from the city. But ehhh, you know.. Embarcadero is a port area and you can chill by the port but it's not really advisable to go swimming there.
So imagine my delight when I heard about Pinarik Eco Resort. Ah, at last, water. I thought to myself.
Come on in! Good times awaits!
My first impression is that the area was well-planned. The cottages are lined around, with nice looking palm trees above. The pool is wide enough to accommodate about 50+ pax (for people without space issues) at one time. There is a 2ft area for the kids, which is in the middle of the picture. There is 3 ft, 4 ft, 5ft and 6 ft area. Cottages and umbrellas can be rented for the day.
This play area is cute for babies and children and grandmothers. At the back of my mom is the 2ft portion, which is safe for little kids. But of course, under direct strict adult supervision.
There is a bar in the area but currently there is not much going on in there. A few cold beers, few snacks and that's it. I think you should bring your own food, especially when you have kids with you.
In that bar area you can hold parties that can accommodate around 50+ people. Maybe more depending on your preference.
A huge pogi point is that their rest rooms are well maintained and clean. There is a lot of showers inside so there would be no problem for a lot of people needing it simultaneously.
You can see the rates of entrance and rental fee of umbrellas and cottages in this picture. As for food, it is ok to bring your own food inside. There is not much food you can buy inside so better prepare. You won't be charged no matter how much food you bring inside. Also, abide by the pool rules for everyone's safety.
