Anne Raquel's Resort : Olongapo City

Olongapo City and Subic Bay is known for it's many resorts and beaches.  Lots of local and foreign tourists are coming to to the town of Olongapo and Subic, Zambales during summer to beat the summer heat by spending a day or two on it's well known resorts.  I remembered during my childhood days when my father would always organize a beach outing for the entire family where all my siblings, nieces and nephews will come all together to share a scrumptious sea foods lunch.  Ahh...those were the days. :)

When I finally have my own family, swimming and visiting beaches and resorts has also been our favorite activity.  It was on a summer of 2010 when we've decided to visit one resort located in Olongapo City,  Anne Raquel's Resort is located on the main road of New Cabalan and is just more than 2 hrs ride from Manila.

This was our first visit to the resort and we don't have any idea what they have there inside a very huge lot which actually covers part of Olongapo and Bataan area.  We arrived at the resort 30 minutes past 8 AM and we were all eager to see the entire place.  We were so delighted to discover that inside the resort you can find not just one but two swimming pools.  One for adults and the other one is a kiddie pool.

There are also lots of things to see and to explore like the beautifully landscaped gardens, a small play ground, hanging bridge and up there on the hill, you can find a chapel which during the time of our visit was still under construction.  They also have a basketball court, a badminton court and facilities for table tennis and other activities.

They also have some rooms which you can rent for an overnight stay.  What I like about this place is the affordable price.  Entrance fee per person is Php200 and this includes the use of cottages and other facilities inside the resort.  Each cottage is equipped with a washing area should you wish to wash your hands and plates and a BBQ pit.  Really very convenient as everything is within your reach.

In fact everything from entrance, transportation including the foods and drinks that we brought to the resort, I only spent about Php2,300 for 5 people on that whole day outing.  Not bad, huh?

The best thing of all is that it is very near to our place.  Less than 30 minutes drive.

If I would have a chance to take another home leave next summer, I wouldn't mind visiting again this resort.
