Bantayan Island - A Long Weekend (Sept 9-12, 2016)

My friends, sister and I decided to celebrate the long weekend away from the city. We planned the trip 2 weeks before the actual date to really prepare on it. Some decided not to go due to financial issue and hectic schedule. Anyway, let's start the short story.

 All of us agreed to go in Bantayan Island, it's my third time but all worth it, and the budget must be 1, 500.00 each. We booked a room to stay overnight at Queen Elizabeth Beach Resort and it cost 1,800.00/8pax. Actually, the original rate of the room is 1, 500.00/5pax but they offered us the discounted rate which is 1, 500.00/8pax. The room has 1 CR and fully air-conditioned.

The resort is just simple, clean and very satisfying customer service. Everything that we need is already in the resort from food, utensils, etc. Pak na Pak! The ambiance is not that good compared to others, but it's worth it. I will recommend this resort for those backpackers and looking for cheap rate to stay.
