Gatubod Spring Resort — A Resort Near Home

“Please, excuse the mess. We are making memories.”

There is this new Spring Resort near home and everybody’s bustling about it. Of course, since it is sooo near our house (like only 1 km away from our house), we couldn’t miss it. To the resort, WE GO!

The weather was perfect to have fun. I was bored, there were no new DVDs at home, I couldn’t go shopping nor stroll the mall because I was broke. I heard the kids outside the house playing hide-and-seek. (I wished to play with them, but Lola was there, she’d say, “Katiguwang na nimo, magduwa gihapon ka ana? Pag urong!”) So, I called them and asked if they wanted to go swimming. They all wanted to. Without further ado, we prepared to go. We just walked because it’s near, it took us less than 30 minutes walking.

When we got there, the entrance was very crowded. There were many people and all the cottages were occupied and reserved. Luckily, the one who was in the reception was a friend of mine, we were able to get in. (It pays to be friendly 🙂 )

The resort has three pools. This is first pool you can see upon entering, this is also the deepest. It’s up up to 7 ft deep. And, look at the slides!

And this is the third pool. It was crowded, usually it is. This is not too deep and is bigger than the first one.

More Information:

*Entrance Fee — Php30 (Kids) / Php60 (Adult)

*Cottages: Ranges from Php250 – Php500

*No corkage

How To Get There:

*From Sm/Mandaue, just ride a jeepney or bus going to Compostela or Danao. Ask the driver to drop you off in Compostela Public Market or in Guimbal, corner going to Virginia Foods Inc.. There are motorcycles for hire (habal-habal) and will take you to the resort. The travel from the market is 15-20 minutes. It would be a bumpy ride going there, but it would be worth it.
