Davao Pearl Farm Escapade Part II

Hi there, this is a continuation of my Davao Pearl Farm Escapade Part I. Please bear with my face in every photo here. Thank you.

A pose while waiting for the shuttle going to Balay/HillTop, 
where our room is located.

We could have used the cemented steps behind me but I am afraid hubby would be catching his breath halfway so I requested for a shuttle. The driver was very nice and knowledgeable about the place, he even offered to take us to the other side of the property where fancy houses/huts are located but we were not interested that time, we declined and thanked him.

 The bed. It is huge.

We paid for an extra bed for my daughter and it was just perfect for her. The room had complimentary coffee, bottled water, bananas (yep, the fruit, and they were very sweet), and two pairs of slippers. Few minutes after we got into the room, the housekeeping staff knocked on the door to give us a complimentary cookies.

  The view at night in the Parola lobby.

Hubby and I were walking around the beach after our sumptuous dinner when one of the staff invited us to watch a film in the lobby. It was breezy. We enjoyed the film and the free WiFi :)


Just beautiful. 
The water was inviting but I did not take a dip. Just looking at its beauty was already more than enough for me.

I got to talk to two courteous staff assigned at the Parola, I forgot their names (I did ask for their names) and both of them were Trainees as they are both taking up Hotel and Restaurant Management at Iligan Institute of Technology (If my mind serves me right) in Iligan City. I asked them how they ended up at the Pearl Farm Beach Resort, they said they applied through email and got lucky to have been selected. And I learned that they get free meals but they had to pay for their lodging. Interesting, yeah? To those who are Hotel and Restaurant Management students out there, I think this is a good place for internship.

I am so glad we stayed overnight, otherwise, I would have not enjoyed the beauty of the island at sunset, the delicious dinner at the Maranao Restaurant (hubby loved their American foods served in the buffet table) and, the fresh and clean morning breeze.

Thank you for dropping by. Have a good one!


  1. Maranao Restaurant sounds good. Okay din pala siya for Muslim tourists

  2. Hi Baihanna, how are you my beautiful friend? Thank you for leaving a comment. The Maranao Restaurant serves different kinds of foods for everyone so I am sure it is okay for Muslim tourists and also for non-tourist to dine in there. Their foods are really good.
