Mount Sea Resort Review

Back in December, I urged my choir batchmates to indulge in a staycation at Mount Sea Resort.

We rarely see each other now that we weren’t that active anymore. Most often than not, we get to see each other eirher once a month or even once every other month. I guess this is part of adulting. Schedules do not meet and surprise get togethers are better than planned ones. That is why we planned our Christmas staycation, hopefully this will become a tradition.

Merry Christmas from our crazy part of the world.

Scheduled on the third weekend of December, we had pure fun at Mount Sea.

The location was good, it was just a short bus ride away from everyone. Getting there was easy. If coming from Manila, it is easily accessible via CavitEx.

When we got there, we had a minor hiccup with our reservation. There was a minor miscommunication. See, I reserved three rooms and I was given the Caviteno Privelegio rate. However, upon our check in we were charged with their normal flat rate. Price difference was almost at P4,000 if I recall correctly. Great thing is that they were able to sort it out immediately. I just mentioned the name of the person whom I contacted for the reservation.

When we went inside our rooms, my initial reaction is that it looked good. I haven’t stayed there before, but I do know that they were undergoing renovation.

Rooms were big, bathrooms clean and with free toiletries, complimentary snacks were provided, and the door warning system was good. AC was good and easy to adjust too.

Since we were there not just to stay in our rooms, but really to enjoy each other’s company, we went around the resort. What thrilled me the most was their entertaimment area, which they call Vertical Avenue.

This area had a mini gym, pool table, darts, sala with entertainment console, and a videoke room! Of course we all sing, aside from being filipinos we are choir members, singing is second to talking.

We did explore Vertical Avenue but the pool looked so inviting. We decided to go for a swim first in their private pool in the afternoon and have mature dinner, because adulting, in the resort restaurant.

Their private pool area had two pools, one is good for kids and the other one for adults. What we all liked about their private pool was the seats submerged in the adult pool (the area where it was situated was elevated). We spent the afternoon and morning after, swimming and taking lots of photos.

For dinner, their in-house restaurant was good but nothing stellar. I think what I liked the best was their chicharong bulaklak. Service was fast and they had high chairs for kids (yay for bunny).

We went to Vertical Avenue after dinner to drink and be merry. You can request for your drinks to be served there after dinner. Just a reminder, usage of the videoke room is limited to 45 minutes per room. Since we were staying in 3 rooms we had 2 plus videoke hours. Of course we maximized those 2 plus hours, we had the whole vertical avenue to ourselves! The staff even allowed us to go a bit over our time because nobody else was lined up to use it.

The rooms, before I forget, comes with free breakfast for two. Since more than two people were assigned per room, we paid a bit of extra. Breakfast was plated and you can choose from the usual continental or local plates.

Near the dining area for breakfast was a mini garden. My little girl, being a nature lover, went around with her daddy. She had so much fun talking with the macaw bird and feeding the koi fish.

Overall, our stay at Mount Sea Resort was great. My only feedback though is that they should have spa services offered and better reservation tracking. We would definitely visit and stay there again.

    I’m currently looking for a place for our family’s yearly vacation. Will check this out. At least there’s activities for both kids and adults.

    When I was in college, ang hilig din namin mag-outing with friends pero ngayon ang hirap magtagpo ng sked and yung iba abroad na. I hope in the future makapagstaycation din kami.

    Another place to consider for my boys when we go out for an adventure or quick getaway πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing this and looking forward to your other reviews!

    I’m not sure if this one’s the same with Mount Sea Beach resort we have visited in Cavite years back. Daytime swimming lang ang nagawa namin and the place is good for quick getaway nga.

  6. Mommy Levy says:

    We stayed here before and we got the place all for ourselves because it’s off season. We like the servings of their food because it’s huge, we find it worth the money.

  7. Maan says:

    Oooh I love the room, it looks so cozy and relaxing! It’s really important for me to stay in a nice room because you’re gonna spend all your energy all day exploring places, right? I’m sure you had a great time there!

    I’m a sucker for nice hotel rooms. Glad I came across your post as I’m planning for our 3rd wedding anniversary vacation. πŸ™‚ I’m totally fine with just ok food basta great service. Plus na lang if masarap ang food ng resort.

    We’re planning to treat our parents to an overnight staycation this month. Since they live in Cavite, this resort would be the perfect place for us to celebrate their wedding anniversary. Will check this out. Thanks!

    It’s so nice that you were able to get together! It’s really so hard to find common schedule to do things together. The place looks fab! Good thing they were able to sort out the difference in rate. Sayang din yung discount!
