Hubby and I went to Island Cove Hotel & Leisure Park because we were suddenly too tired to drive as far as Tagaytay. Coming from our place in the south, this resort near Bacoor, Cavite was only an hour away. First impressions: the place was really huge! It was also a good deal that we got a two-bedroom cottage for P4,500, although it seemed strange that it didn’t go with free buffet breakfast. Anyway, more on that later. 😀 Here are some pictures of the place I unearthed from my archives.
The giant chessboard in Island Cove is a bit of a landmark. The kids would also be delighted with their Oceania water park and the zoo called Animal island. That is, if they’re the types who prefer to commune with nature, and not electronic games 😀
It was a good enough location, so much so that we chose it as the site of our prenuptial photo shoot last January. Here’s one taken by their wharf….. (photo courtesy of our wedding photographer, RedSheep)
It seemed obvious during our visit that the Cove is a popular place for seminars, weddings and other special functions. One thing that this place really failed in was the FOOD. It seemed to be the consensus of my friends from Manila who’s been there too. The average cost of our family meal while we stayed there was $60, P2,500 or so and there was nothing outstanding about it. This place needs to overhaul their F & B asap, or at least make the items in the menu palatable, if they are to remain expensive. It was nothing to crow about, and it is for this reason that we will probably take a long time to go back here again.
And this ends my (belated) review 😀
