So I scouted for a good resort near the area of San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan via net because my brother and my nieces live there and I found Grotto Vista Resort. Their official website is very informative and they show great pictures.
The actual place is not disappointing either. I found the whole resort clean and the staff friendly. Not sure if the cleanliness and orderliness is just because there are very few customers when we were there.
The entrance for adults is Php150 and Php100 for children. Their cottages are also affordable and they also offer private pools and rooms. Bringing in grillers and alcoholic drinks are prohibited but they are not so strict in rummaging the things that the customers bring inside.
They have a huge pool area for adults and an area for kiddie pools. You can also see the private pools which are of course locked. It is also nice that when you have children with you, they would recommend a cottage near the kiddie pool area.
I just don’t like the restroom and the shower rooms because it is not well-maintained. The water in the pool is also very cold that it made me wish for a hot spring resort.
But overall, we (especially the children) all had fun. It was a great bonding activity for the whole family and made my birthday more meaningful.
