Residencia de Riego Resort Alitagtag Reviews
Amenities are Good but Location is Not Jun 22, 2013
Residencia de Riego is a resort located at the middle of farmlands in Alitagtag, Batangas. The location is not so appealing because from the highway, you need to traverse by the narrow rocky road passing through the sugarcane plantation. But if you are a nature lover, then you might enjoy the scene.
I've been there twice. During our first time, we stayed there overnight and on our second time, we registered at 3:00 pm and left there at 11:00 pm. Being far from the highway, we felt scary as we traveled across the dark narrow roadway, thus I would say it is not so advisable to go there at late night.
On the other hand, the resort is a heaven for relaxation. The main attraction there are the pools with majestic lights that turn the water from one color to another from time to time.
You have the option to choose the air condition rooms that fit your needs and suits your budget. Though a bit small in size, they will for sure compensate your stay. And if you want a cool touch of nature, they have the open cottages that will let you feel the cool breeze of fresh air. And if you still want an outdoor camping set up, just book for it and they will assemble one for you.
The entire place is clean and well organized. There are available grill stations should you brought your own foods. Oh by the way, bringing of foods and drinks are allowed inside without any corkage fee at all. But if you don't feel like bringing, there is a restaurant and a 24-hour convenience store.
There is a karaoke for those who love to sing. But if you just want to play, just proceed to the billiard hall or have your time spent at the dart station.
There is a small meditation area for those who want to contemplate.
Souvenir shop is just at the main entrance of the resort.
No need to worry about the safety of your cars as there is a huge parking space properly guarded.
The bar is getting more alive at night. The back to back performance of the acoustic singer and the band group really catch the mood of the crowd.
Everything is good, except the place. Try it!
