Rafols Resort ;)

Posted: July 29, 2010 in P└aÇëš



Went to Rafols Resort at Dumlog, Talisay, Cebu last Saturday for baby sis’ birthday. 🙂

The resort is situated on the far end of Talisay. It was quite a distance from our home, but for a resort in the city, the distance wasn’t that bad at all. But from someone like me with a just a tiny sense of direction, all I can say is it’s accessible via SRP. lol sorry. ;p

Had a bad timing with a flooded road on our way to the resort.  Water level wasnt that bad but we were riding on a mini van and for a sec, i was concerned with my poor car drowning its under-chassis for us. Good thing it did not give in. It bravely surpassed the muddy grounds of the place, lol.


The Resort



The soon to be rooms


From the outside, it didnt look like a resort; well, only because the place was not yet fully developed. The reception area and the rooms  were still under construction, but the pools and cottages were ready to use. There were 2 kiddie pools which are 2 and 4 ft deep. On the other end is a large pool for adults, up to 7 ft deep. They had 3 mini slides in the large pool, and a lifeguard for each pool area.


Cottages @ P300



the big pool



the slides


Cottages were at P300 (but we got it for 200. I later realized I took the more expensive cottage heheh) ; entrance at P50/adult and P30/kid. Not bad really. Cottages were good enough. Just right for the price. According to the lifeguard, rooms are at P500 (was he kidding? No, i guess not.)


the kiddie pools 3ft and 4ft deep



the grill house 😀



the videok/function area


What I love about the place?
The very cheap entrance fee, the shady ambiance, no corkage fee, crew/staff is okay, the dedicated grill house, the not-so bad lavatory, the overall spacious, green area. They had a mini activity/function area, in front of the kiddie pools, and a large videoke area (yes! videoke!;p), which can be used for parties and gatherings. Beside is a green yard, where April and my sister had their photo shoot. lol. I loved the flowery place, even though it was just santan (my sister mocked ;p)

What I not-so love about the place?
Shower areas and Restrooms were poor.
Restrooms were tiny and stinky, (especially the Men’s :-/).
All 4 Shower areas needed maintenance.
Foods are too expensive; I call it Airport-price!
Some areas are untidy and needed cleaning. They need more utility men!
Also, pools are usable until 5:30pm only.
If you request to use it beyond 5:30pm, you will have to pay an additional P70 on top of the P50 pesos entrance fee.

What I wish it had?
A volleyball court or some sort.

Overall, I give this place a 6 out of 10 rating because of 2 things: 1.) It’s under construction, so I tolerate the flaws 2.) It’s really cheap for day use. It’s a perfect place if you’re looking for an affordable, quite hideaway, or if you just simply miss the pool. Good place for friends and family bondings  when your budget is not grand.  The place just needed more retouch. When fully-developed, I bet the place would have a lot of visitors coming in (but I bet prices would raise, too).

      call 238-2301 for specific direction. coming from SRP going south. turn RIGHT on San isidro all the way straight until you hit dumlog, just keep going until you reach the beach. Left side is Rafols Resort, if riding a TAXI just tell them DECA homes Talisay, left side of the resort is the Deca Homes.

      Rooms are available for 1 bedroom good for 4 and they have a apartment style having 3 bedrooms 2 full bath, living room. Can accommodate up to 15 people. Cottages are available for overnight.

      And I heard, son from states arrived to manage the Resort now, there are Major renovations going on., enjoy and goodluck. “WHERE MEMORIES ARE MADE”
