The best weekend getaway : El Don Resort

After a hard day’s work and busy schedule in the city, I was praying that the Lord will grant me a short vacation. I needed to get some fresh air and all I could ever think of was staying at the beach and eat good food.

A weekend getaway with my family perhaps was the best thing I could wished for. Guess what happened? Wish was granted indeed. Ask me why?

We had a memorable stay at El Don Resort located at Barangay Pundaguitan, Municipality of Governor Generoso in the province of Davao Oriental.  A four hour trip by land from Davao City, it’s all worth by the time you arrived since the beauty of the resort itself is priceless.

Complete with amenities and wonderful sites inside the resort, it is commendable to families and friends who want to relax and enjoy.  With its 14 spacious rooms, you can sure to have a very comfy sleep.  A safe pool side for both kids and adult, Cabana, function room and entertainment area.  You will enjoy your conversation while staying at their mini bar or eat at their Spanish-filipino restaurant ordering the food of your choice which are all fresh, healthy and delicious from day till night.

My kids enjoyed swimming at their large sized pool the whole day.  It was not easy to convince them to stay out of the pool.  They didn’t mind swimming for how many hours in the pool because they were definitely enjoying every minute of it.

Their huge attractive garden caught my attention and it was trimmed well to look more presentable to every customers they have. They have rooms good for 6 people and verandah where they can see the beautiful view of the beach.

However, before we came to this resort we visited a museum called , “ Mt. Hamiguitan’s Natural Science Museum”.

We had an educational and fun tour inside Mt. Hamiguitan’s Natural Science Museum. The kids, Princess (my daughter) and Kameron (my niece) learned a lot and were able to play few games inside this huge museum like “Touch Me Not, Color Me and Finger Twister during the short tour”.

It was very clean inside complete with good facilities. The different lightings were put to good use which made the surroundings more attractive especially during the night.

Our friendly tour guide and staff, Mr. Allan Hinatuan shared to us a lot of insights about the museum. He was a jolly one who made us laugh the whole time. He was really well informed about the place as he was conversant himself.  The kids truly enjoyed and were amazed as they went inside seeing all the things being displayed everywhere.

You can drop by this museum and spare sometime to have a look inside. A happy and smiling staff will be there to welcome you with open arms and his, whose name was “Allan”, who will assure that your visit will definitely be cool and entertaining.

Going back to our main topic which is the El Don Resort, as I toured around the area, I caught a glimpse of a flight of stairs which led me to their beautiful, white sand beach. I took this chance and sat back, relax in this open air cottage with bean bags that you can sit restfully while looking at the nature’s amazing mountain view and trees surrounding the area. I also enjoyed gently swaying at their hammock strongly made from native net for guests to swing before they doze off.

While having a delightful stay at the resort, I surprisingly met my batchmate from Ateneo De davao University, Ms. Nadine Francisco who happens to be the Front Office and Operations Lead Consultant of El Don Resort.

We had good food served always fresh and tasty prepared by Chef Gerard Piansay, F & B, Kitchen and Service Operations Consultant and his team of chefs.
