Getaway Within The City

     Summer is about to end and everybody is in a rush to take their last minute summer vacation,  in the beach or the mountain resorts here in Negros or anywhere in the country.  But if you don't have time for a long drive and you only got a weekend available, there's a resort within the city that is great for an overnight or two getaway. Palmas Del Mar is located in JR Torres Avenue in Bacolod City. A five-hectare resort facing the sea surrounded by lush green vegetations.
     My brother tagged me along to Palmas Del Mar last Saturday evening to join them for an overnight stay together with his high school friends. I haven't been there for so long so I decided to go with them. It was 7:30  pm when we arrived. The swimming pool as teaming with overnight stayers and even the billiard tables are occupied. They had booked the Costa Dorada family room in Iberian-their newest hotel.  It had a queen size bed, 2 single beds and a pull-out on one single bed, a 50 inch flat screen plasma tv with cable service, a phone, a dvd player and hot and cold shower. What's nice is that it is 20 steps away from the kiddie pool which is adjacent to the big pool. You can watch your kids swimming while having a drink on the rooms front porch.



     After dinner we decided to take a dip on the pool and enjoyed the warm water on the pool for over an hour. Swimming pool is open until 11:00 pm. It was almost 11:00 when one by one we hit the bed, the boys had their chit chat while drinking beer and I enjoyed watching movies on HBO. It was past four in the morning when I decided to get some sleep. I woke up early, went around the resort and took some photos. Their garden setting is perfect for weddings, debut, birthday and any special occasion. When I got back to the room, we ordered for breakfast. I had an English breakfast set while they have their all time Filipino breakfast. The breakfast was mouth-watering except for the overripe pineapple that we did not ate. The whole resort has WIFI so I spent the rest of the morning checking my facebook and emails.
