Rice Restaurant Princesa Garden

Rice Restaurant Princesa Garden

 

Rice Restaurant is one of the three restaurants at Princesa Garden Resort and Spa Palawan. It’s the same restaurant where they serve the complimentary breakfast. They also are open for lunch and dinner. We had a pick out of the three and we decided to try this one first. It serves Filipino and International cuisine. Their hotel website says that they show cultural presentations on occasion outdoor but it was not the case when we were there maybe because it was low season.

Cebu City Tour

Cebu City Tour

Cebu City is the queen city of the South in the Philippines. It’s the second biggest Metropolitan area in the Philippines. It is the first Spanish settlement in the country making it the oldest city. It has a lot of history. In this Cebu City Tour, we went to visit the Old Fort which is pictured above. We also went to see Magellan’s cross, not the original of course but a representation of it. We also saw some old churches.

Best Western Plus Cebu Review

Best Western Plus Cebu Review

I chose Best Western Plus Cebu because it was reasonably priced including breakfast and it was centrally located. The Cebu Ferry Terminal is only 3 kilometers away. There are also a lot of restaurants around the area. In fact, there is a McDonald next door. The rooms look great and the breakfast was nice. Looking back, I wish we had stayed on Mactan Island although the hotels there are much more expensive. I hope this Best Western Cebu Plus Review gives you an insight on what it’s like to stay in this hotel.

Coast Pool Bar

Coast Pool Bar

Coast Pool Bar is a cozy bar by the pool and the beach at South Palms Resort. We mostly had lunch here but we also had dinner once when we thought the main restaurant was a bit noisy. Prices are expensive. We love the colorful tables and chairs strewn around the bar. The decor is really fun and chic. I think they share the same menu with the Oceania restaurant which is the main restaurant of the resort. They are open almost all day except for breakfast serving lunch, dinner and in between drinks or snacks.

South Palms Resort

South Palms Resort

South Palms Resort is located in Panglao, Bohol. It is lined with coconut trees and white sand beach. The resort has 90 rooms so it is on a smaller scale which we like. It has one main restaurant, a bar and two swimming pools. It is a bit pricey but I got a very good deal with my credit card at the time of booking, that was really nice. Otherwise, it would have been out of our budget.

Park Inn by Radisson Clark

Park Inn by Radisson Clark

 

 

Park Inn by Radisson Clark is located at the rear of SM Clark so it’s ideally located. We had a short overnight stay at this hotel. The Clark International Airport also known as Diosdado Macapagal Airport is only 10-15 minutes away by car without traffic. It’s exactly why I chose this hotel. My boyfriend was arriving at Clark airport and we were flying to Manila the next day. I decided to just stay the night in Clark rather than Manila because he had such a long travel time. It would be better just to relax. We decided to just go the next day.

Matutina’s

Matutina’s

 

Matutina’s is a seafood restaurant located in San Sebastian, Tarlac City. It’s along the highway across the intersection next to the SOGO Hotel so it’s hard to miss.  It serves mostly Filipino food with affordable prices. My friend and I met after not seeing each other in a while. I was craving pinakbet and Matutina’s makes some mean Pinakbet so we decided to eat there.
