With overnight promo rates for 2 starting at only PHP 3,683.00, Palmbeach Resort & Spa is no doubt a welcome and affordable addition to the booming boutique beach resort scene in Mactan especially in the Punta Engaño vicinity where many expensive resorts are located.
Although this city getaway’s rate may sound like you’ll be left wanting for more, the breath-taking view and the facilities that can be enjoyed here can easily put your doubts to rest. Facilities include:
- Three Swimming pools with Kiddie pool
- Elevated Pool
- Massage Spa
- Dive Shop
- Children’s playroom
- Game room
- Function room
- Concierge service
- 24-hour Front Desk
- Wireless internet in public areas and inside the rooms
- Gift shop
- Parking facilities
- 24-hour security
- CCTV cameras
- Standby Emergency Generator
- Room for Persons with Disabilities (PWD)
For families especially with young children, emphasis should be given to its family-oriented features including the kiddies’ pool, game room, availability of board games, and the children’s indoor playground.
For those quick city escapes for love birds, I’d say the elevated pool, jacuzzi, and just the quaint overall feel of the resort match with a drink or two from the restaurant that boasts of some interesting offerings including their home-made “malunggay” and “kalabasa” flavored ice cream.
Before I kiss this section goodbye, let me also be upfront with you that the resort does not have a shoreline, however, they do have access to the sea via a staircase – something I’d consider to be the gateway to a number of sea-based adventures like scuba diving, snorkeling, and island hopping. Of course with the resort being notably hospitable, they can help you with such as well.
Accommodation Details & Rate
Most of the pictures found on the internet does not do justice to the overall size of Palmbeach Resort & Spa. Judging from online pictures alone, I wouldn’t have thought in any way that the place has a total of 53 available rooms that are notably larger than most (if not all) relative to its price range.
The 3 standard rooms for example come with 26 sqm of space with again, a higher end feel amenities that include a mini bar and, for some reason I always look for this thing in all the rooms I find myself into, an electric kettle! Overnight for 2 in a standard room with breakfast current promo rate is at PHP 3,683.00 nett.
44 deluxe rooms are no doubt the best sellers as they come with 38 sqm of space together with everything else the standard rooms have plus your very own kitchenette adding to that homey feel. Overnight for 2 in a deluxe room with breakfast current promo rate is at PHP 4,910.00 nett.
On top of the resort’s accommodation’s pyramid are the 6 suites that are good for 4 adults. The suites come with a staggering 58 sqm of space including 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a dining area, living room, a kitchenette, as well as your very own balcony as these rooms are strategically situated on the ends of the building so you are guaranteed the best ocean views. Overnight for 4 in a suite room with breakfast current promo rate is at PHP 6,138.00 nett.
How to Get There
The resort is a mere 15 minute ride from the Mactan International Airport making it very accessible for those travelling by plane. From the airport, you can opt to get one of the yellow airport taxis to take you to the place which should cost about PHP 200.00 to PHP 300.00. Better, why not avail of the resort’s airport transfer service?
From Cebu City, say you’re from the Fuente Circle, you’ll have to navigate yourself to going to Punta Engaño using the new Marcelo Fernan Bridge route. This will generally take about 1 hour on Sunday’s traffic but would be as long as 2 hours on weekdays and Saturdays.
