Adventures in Marinduque: Bellarocca Island Part 1

The travel time from Balanacan Port to Bellarocca's Jetty Port in Lipata, Buenavista is about 2 hours. But it took us more than 2 hours to arrive in Lipata because we stopped over first at Boac to eat our late lunch.

We arrived at Bellarocca's Jetty Port past 4:00pm already.

We rode a speed boat going to Bellarocca Island (formerly Elephant Island). The travel time is only about 5 minutes.

When we arrived at Bellarocca Island, we went first to their receiving area.

Then we rode a golf cart going to the hotel.

When we arrived at the hotel, we were welcomed by the whole hotel team. As in lahat nag-introduce sa amin. Eh paano ba naman kami hindi lahat mag-iintroduce eh pangatlong guest lang ang family namin dun. Hehe. Anyway, they served us a very refreshing and delicious pandan juice (sayang nga at hindi ko nakunan ng picture). Guess what? I asked the restaurant how much yung pitcher ng pandan juice, muntik na akong mahulog sa upuan when they said na P900.00 daw. Anuvayan! Dahon lang na pinakuluan na may brown sugar and vanilla extract kaginto na ang presyo! Sa kanila na lang yun, gagawa na lang kami ni Mama G ng version namin. Hehe.

We were briefed also about the house rules of the resort. They made it short na kasi halatang pagod na pagod kami sa biyahe.  After the briefing, they finally escorted us to our rooms.

We got 2 hotel rooms. One for my parents and one for my family and my brother. Same lang naman ang room except na may extra bed yung room namin for my brother.

Let me tour you inside our room.

Here is the view of the inside from the door...

There is a personalized welcome letter for us...

and welcome cookies too...

Here is the very comfy king size bed and extra bed...

The work and entertainment area...

The LCD and DVD player complete with amplifier. I tell you, ang bongga ng sound system nila! Digital surround! They have a collection of DVDs wherein you can borrow. My hubby and dad borrowed some nga eh. At siyempre, hindi mawawala ang Spiderman series dun! Haha!

The big bathroom:

With his and hers lavatory...

Shower area...

Toilet area...

Bath tub...

Shala toiletries...

The room has its own balcony where you can have some muni muni time...

Here is the view from our balcony...

Ang nice ng hotel room ano? Very spacious kaya puwedeng puwede kayo maghabulan sa loob. Hehe. We got the deluxe hotel room kasi yun ang cheapest (Sabi naman sa inyo eh, mana mana lang yan. Like father, like daughter. Hahaha!). It's about P10,000.00/room/night. Yeah, cheapest na yan sa lagay na yan. Actually, that's Bellarocca's promo rate pa because they are celebrating their 4th year anniversary. If you check their website, the published rate for the said room is $680.00. Yes, in dollars siya! Kaya kung tutuusin, nakamura na rin talaga kami.

Lam niyo ba, pagkapasok namin sa room that day, hindi na kami lumabas. My parents and I, tumba kaagad sa pagod. Tumakas nga ako sa mga kulilits eh kasi binubugbog ako at ayaw akong patulugin. Hehe. Tapos, hubby, the kulilits and my brother naman watched movies then maya maya tumba rin. As in hindi na kami nakapagdinner at kinabukasan na kami nagising! Hehe.

Yan ang first day namin sa Bellarocca Island. Literal na pahinga lang!
