Hotel Review: Costa Pacifica Resort in Baler

2 4,471

During the recent SkyJet Airlines Baler Inaugural Flight, we stayed overnight at Costa Pacific Resort (hotel info) in Baler. It was my second time staying at the resort and for me, Costa Pacifica Baler is the best resort to rest during a stay in Baler and even though it’s not the cheapest place in the area, it’s definitely worth every cent.

Various aspects can be pointed out when talking about what makes the Costa Pacifica so great in particular, and the overall feeling you’ll get from your stay is just all around splendid, but let’s have a look at the more important points in detail.

Location

Costa Pacifica Resort (rates) is located in Sabang Beach in Baler, Aurora which is also known as the birthplace of surfing in the Philippines (visit Baler Travel Guide). Sabang Beach is just 20 minutes away from Baler Airport and about 230 kilometers northeast of Manila.

Room quality

The Costa Pacifica Baler is known for their creative approach to room decorations and overall service, and first-time visitors are usually pleasantly surprised by the refreshing look of their rooms. All 106 rooms are spacious, well-lit and nicely decorated with comfortable furniture, and you’ll have all necessary features and amenities at your disposal. From widescreen TVs (yes, plural), to air conditioning and huge windows overlooking the nearby beach or garden, you’ll be coming back to your room with a smile on your face after a day of adventure.

The pool is always nice and clean as well, plus it offers good opportunities for socializing with other guests if you feel like it. It tends to be quite the active place in the hotel, so make sure you pay it a visit during your stay.

Food

Breakfast is always a delight for Costa Pacifica guests, especially those who like to have a filling meal before they start the day. Depending on the time of the year, you’ll get to choose from unlimited servings of a variety of meals, from Filipino, Baler’s home-grown delicacies to International dishes, all finely prepared and tasting better than most of the local restaurants can offer. Other regular courses are offered as well, with the same level of attention to their preparation. Of course, you can also get food in your hotel room, but eating at the Costa Pacifica’s Beach House restaurant is a pleasure in itself.

Service

With a place like this, you’d expect nothing but flawless service, and you wouldn’t be off from the mark by one inch. The entire staff is friendly, professional, and fully acquainted with the hotel’s layout, features and regulations. If you ever need help with anything regarding your stay, it doesn’t really matter who you ask for assistance – everyone will be both equally eager to help you, as well as equally knowledgeable on the hotel’s important details.

In fact, most of the staff feel downright friendly, and not for any subtle reasons either – you’ve already paid for your stay, so that’s out of the question. It really does seem like the hotel simply hires good people and are careful with their screening process.

Overall

Between the Costa Pacifica’s great location, the friendliness of its staff, the amazingly decorated rooms and the great food available in its restaurant, there really aren’t any better options for your next holiday in the Philippines, if you still haven’t found accommodation. The country has a lot to offer by itself, that’s true – but if you really want to make your vacation pleasant and memorable, staying at the Costa Pacifica can help you get every bit of pleasure out of the experience.
