Feeling the early heat of summer, my family once again trooped to my sis’ place in Balanga, Bataan last weekend. Thereafter proceeded to Manager’s Place Resort In Morong, Bataan. Sis found the said resort in the internet as usual. She warns us that she hasn’t personally seen the place so she’s uncertain what the resort really looks like. The two big kiddos and I went ahead of sis and Mae,( her daughter) with the hope that hubby already reached the resort as he had biked his way to Morong hours ahead of us. But in just few kilometres to the beach, we passed by the biking hubby on the road and saw him get smaller as we left him behind us.
The owner of the beach resort, Mrs. Paz Abella warmly welcomed us as we arrived at the resort’s gate. While ushering us inside, she was humbly apologizing for the small area that they have. Yes, the place maybe small compared to the other resorts in the vicinity but it is obviously well taken cared of. The surrounding is clean, with beautiful blossoming plants in every nook and crannies. They have different cottages to suit your needs. Their native roomsi with aircon can each accommodate four. We were six so we got two rooms. And without us asking, we were given further discounts by Mrs Abella. Her husband, the former Branch Manager of Land Bank Balanga (where the resort’s name came from) is equally accommodating. Always on the lookout for anything that we would possibly need, from table to chairs to offering the transfer of heavy griller for our convenience. Geez, where can you find such friendly customer treatment with personal touch? We just found it here! Or could it be because Mr and Mrs Abella discovered they have mutual friends with my sis? Maybe so, but apart from that, I believe they are truly friendly and hands on on their customer relation.
Besides the owner’s hospitality, what I like here is the clean beach. Unlike the other beaches we've visited, this one is free from trash and rocks. Overall, the Manager’s Place is worth coming back. And I'm already aching to be back soon. We had a worthwhile weekend! I once again took pleasure in my most loved place, the beach
