Pitstop: Dakong Bato Beach and Leisure Resort

Summer is the time of the year where most of us, students and employees, also families and barkadas, try to renew ourselves from all the stresses we've come head on. So if you find yourself looking for a perfect place to relax during this time...

I recommend you to stay in one of Cebu's best accommodations- Dakong Bato Beach and Leisure Resort translated as 'Big Rock' located in the Municipality of Dalaguete Cebu, Philippines.


Staying here for two nights and three days, our group managed to loiter around and appreciate the structure that seemed to be Venice-inspired. From our area, we could see that meters away from the shore are floating benches and huts for those who would like to swim in the open sea. 

The resort has two swimming pools open till 10pm. While taking a break from swimming, you could also enjoy their karaoke just beside the pool.

Their room rates range from P1500 to P4500 per day for 8-10 people and P250 for every additional person. There's a corkage fee of P25/head and P500 for lechon.

We didn't really stay at the resort just to solely relax, we have to conceptualize and discuss things. So, we're glad that the place has a conference room where we could have ourselves settled for a whole-day discussion.

There were microphones, a white board and an LCD projector for those, like us, would need them.

" I like Dakong Bato a lot because of its view. However, there are really some negative comments I posted below for you to not expect much."



-  Well-maintained surroundings and amenities.
-  Friendly staffs
-  Rooms are closer to the pool and other amenities
-  Cheap if you're many in a room

-  No supplies for the bathroom (e.g soap, shampoo)
-  Pool not so clean
-  No snacks for those who will stay over-night, unlike other resorts
-  Few services and activities to offer
-  Not-so-safe
