for our holy week escapade last year, i got a voucher from ensogo (now living social) for an overnight stay at la traviesa. the voucher included an overnight stay for 8 adults in an attic room, plated breakfast and use of their facilities.
it was good that the voucher is valid even though we used it during the holy week holidays. usual check-in and check-out times were followed. we arrived at the resort at around 3pm. after the usual procedure for checking in, we settled into our rooms.
the attic room was very spacious. there were a total of 3 double beds + 1 bed with a pull out. the room also included a toilet and bath plus a personal refrigerator, lcd tv and phone. we had 6 adults + 3 children occupying the room.
after getting our things in order, we settled ourselves in a cottage near the pool where we had our food. the resort was not strict in bringing in of food and beverages. we even bought our iwatani portable stove with us so that we can cook and reheat our food.
after eating, everyone proceeded to hit the pools. the resort has a separate kiddie pool and an adult infinity pool.
most of us swam until around dinner time. after dinner, a number of us tried out the services in their spa. i availed of the package which included a body scrub + massage for php 1200.00. the spa facility was nice and relaxing, and the therapists and staff were very courteous and helpful. they even provided us with disposable underwear for our treatment. the scrub and massage was thorough and soothing, and i enjoyed it.
complimentary breakfast was plated, and the choice of filipino or american breakfast. we ordered the tocino, tapa, bangus and bacon. it came with either coffee or hot choco. breakfast was served in our room. service was a little slow as we had to follow up several times before our food was served even though we already called in our orders the night before. the coffee and hot chocolate (which all came in instant sachets) took even longer that most of us were already finish eating when it arrived.
after breakfast, the kids hit the pool again until it was time for us to fix ourselves and our things and check out of the resort.
overall, i would say that we got the value of what we paid for. the resort and its facilities were good but it could still be improved a lot, especially on the service.
anyone who is looking for a quick family getaway, or even just for day swimming, i would recommend going to this resort.
