The Bacolod Adventure II + Nature's Village Resort Review


This is the second part of the Bacolod trip/competition last year.

The flight to Bacolod was not comfortable. There was slight turbulence and we are quite worried since we have heard that it was raining hard at Bacolod airport. My boyfriend was hungry already but was waiting patiently for us at the airport. I know it was quite uncomfortable for him at that moment, waiting at a place he has never been before--while it's raining hard.

We arrived past 10:00pm in Bacolod; before we had our flight in Manila (to Bacolod),  I was already exchanging text messages with the customer service personnel of the hotel we had reservations with. 

We have heard that at Bacolod, taxis might not be available after 10:00pm. It's not like Manila where you can have a cab 24/7; here there's still this peak time and off peak time of cabs.  Especially now that it was raining hard, we overheard some passengers (probably a locale of Bacolod) that it would be very hard to get a cab in this rain and time. Good thing Nature's Village Resort's personnel was very accommodating. They suggested a car (big enough for 4 persons with big bags) to pick us up from the airport to the hotel for P600 (more or less). It's really no big deal for us to pay the fee since it's raining and we really wanted to get our ass on our comfy warm rooms right now.

The ride from the airport was comfortable even though we were quite drenched because of the rain (we got a dose of rain shower while loading our things in the car). The ride took us 15-20minutes (without traffic) to our hotel. When we get there, the worst greeted us on the face: brownout.:l

The front desk personnel assured us that there will be electricity at any moment. It just so happen that the time they had brown out is the exact time we reached the hotel. They have their own electric generator. Even though it's quite late in the evening, the hotel assistants welcomed us and assisted us willingly.

We were quiet as we go to the second floor since the hotel looks creepy without light, there's always this unsettling feeling when brownout and rain are combined with unknown territory. After dumping our bags on the floor, then there was light!

We felt really happy that the hotel we picked did not look creepy at all, it looked cozy and VERY, very
comfortable. ^w^

These are my team mates. After showering and finding our comfortable spots  and beds.
(We have two rooms with two beds each).

The Verdict (for our initial experience):

We love our hotel! We'll be staying here for 3-4 days.:D

What we love on this hotel:

  • Friendly assistants
  • Fast response to customer requests
  • They give DISCOUNTS~!! :D
  • Air condition is very good  (yes, there are hotels with bad air condition units plus very noisy air cons.D:)
  • Five stars (over five stars) bathroom

We can attest that the CR is squeaky clean.:)
Yes, having a very good 'comfort room' is way important than the TV and air con.

First night of Bacolod ends here.:) You can check out the Nature's Village Resort if you're planning your trip to Bacolod.:)

Disclaimer: This review of the hotel is not paid for. It just so happen that we were pleased with the services and products we had availed (and paid for) that's why we are reviewing the said hotel. :)

Please wait for the Part 3 of the Bacolod trip and Second part of the hotel review!:)
