Where to Stay in Camotes Island: Mangodlong Paradise | Cebu

After a day filled with exploration and feasting on local cuisine, we finally settled down to our home in Camotes Island. Along with fellow travel bloggers and friends from the Tourism Board of the Philippines, I welcomed the chance to rest my feet and savor the day’s experience lounging by the beach. Good thing, our resort: Mangodlong Paradise is situated just in front of a white sandy beach. Chill time has now commenced, I told myself as we check-in to our separate rooms.

Blues everywhere. The good kind of blues

Bamboo Cafe and Sunset Bar

First thing we did on the resort was to have our dinner at Bamboo Café where we feasted over a medley of local cuisine fused with Chinese food and afterward I hung out at the nearby Sunset Bar—the poolside joint—but I resisted taking a dip into the inviting infinity pool. Two days later, I finally did jump into the pool under the glow of the beautiful sunny day.

Chill spots all over
I instantly found the ambiance of the resort ideal for contemplative mood as the spacious property dotted with tall palm trees and landscaped with manicured lawns, make up for a pseudo great outdoor spot—only it comes with 28 rooms evenly spread out throughout the expansive property.

Cozy Accommodations

My room is Deluxe Room good for two people. It comes with twin beds, an aptly-spaced living area, a TV set, mini-ref, side table and lamps and opens to a small porch where you can sit and view the sunset.

Even though we have a jam-packed three-day itinerary in Camotes Island, I made sure to take advantage of our every downtime—to which we always return to the resort to freshen up and rest—to enjoy the resort more.

Catching up on my reading
A couple of hours of break from our schedule afforded me some time to read a book lying down on a hammock tied between two coconut trees. It’s a kind of place I would definitely look forward to returning again someday. Probably with a girlfriend with me *wink*.

On our last night, the resort set up a cocktail and dinner banquet for us in the outdoor area where the resort also holds weddings and other events.

It was an extraordinary dinner setting because aside from the gorgeous seaside view, we were blessed with a fiery red sunset and a full moon afterward. 

Cultural dances were performed during the night and we capped it all with a celebratory toast signaling the Suroy-Suroy Sugbo Interlude media familiarization tour of Camotes Island.
