One summer afternoon about seven years ago, my college friends and I went to Danao. We had one of those ‘barkada outings’ that actually did happen. It wasn’t like one of those summer plans that just remained plans, you know what I mean? 😀

Yes, I am well aware of all those cancelled-trips that you and your friends plan in your group chats — but never actually happen. It’s funny and sad at the same time. Ha! Sorry. Anyway, the fun summer trip we had was in this specific place in Danao and is now better than before – Coco Palms Resort.

We went on a weekend – it was a busy day and the resort was filled with lots of people. Families and big groups, and we all were enjoying the refreshing sea breeze, their pools and of course their water park. I know this resort is one of the well-known ones. Perhaps the reason being is because of its proximity to the city, as well as its amenities. There have been a lot of great improvements in the resort’s aesthetics and facilities since the last time I was there.

Coco Palms Resort is located in the northern part of Cebu, situated a few minutes outside the city of Danao. The resort doesn’t have much when it comes to the beach since it’s not the typical white sand we usually have on other parts of the province. However, they make up for it for their infinity pool and a big pool with water slide for the kids to enjoy!

One can definitely feel the tropical vibes and beat the summer heat in this resort. Plus it’s not too far away; it’s only an hour to an hour and a half drive from the city. You can either come and enjoy the place for the day or stay over night. Food isn’t a problem since their restaurant is open to serve for 24 hours.

The 3-star resort has 27 deluxe rooms – which are relatively nice, neat and modern. In Coco Palms Resort, you and your friends can enjoy meals and lots of activities such as canoeing, beach volleyball and water skiing. It gets busy during holidays and weekends, so if you prefer to have some quiet time – come on the weekdays.
