Where to Stay in Cagbalete: MVT Sto Niño


This was our first choice ever since we planned the trip with my girlfriends. One, it is less crowded. Two, one of my friends has already stayed at the other resort and she didn't like how their reservation was handled. Three, the other one is more expensive.

Booking a reservation with them is easy. We just texted the contact number in their website and they confirmed it. As if we really need a "reservation" hehe. We just pitched our tent in the ground.



the main resort house


The resort is very spacious. The main house has the fan and aircon rooms. Outside their are nipa huts. In front of the house, is a volleyball court. You can pitch your tent just anywhere within the resort area if you prefer to go camping.

The main house's interior is very native. The walls and ceiling are made of sawali. The doors and floors are also made up of wood.



nice interior


The rooms are average but spacious. They were also very clean. Pillow cases and sheets will be provided when you check in, for sure it is crisp and clean.



standard rooms



They have common lavatory and bathrooms both in ground and second floors. Even if there are many guests, they make sure your needs will be fulfilled.



common area


The shower rooms and the toilets are well-cleaned and maintained.

If they are fully-booked or if you just prefer camping, you may pitch your tent anywhere in their vicinity.

We had fun staying here. It was so peaceful! I don't mind the long trek to get here. The caretakers were very nice and helpful. We were provided everything we needed. The entire place is clean which I liked very much. It is an excellent hideaway from the city. If you don't mind some trekking and you want an unadulterated union with nature, I highly suggest this resort. :)
