|Dakak Park and Beach Resort|
Our stay includes entrance to Gloria's Fantasyland, a theme park that serves as one of Dapitan's main attraction. We used our free entrance pass before going to the resort the next day.
Though the theme park is relatively small, it was still nice strolling around the grounds. The theme park had a festive atmosphere.

The next morning we were picked up by a chauffeured van and made our way to the resort. Upon arrival, welcome drinks was served and we were given a printed map of the whole resort. My first impression of the resort was that the whole place was covered in beautiful groomed lawns, plants and trees.

Motorized carts brought us to our room and the driver told us that they can drive us around if we wanted to check out places within the resort.

The rooms looked like kubos or huts, rooms were spaciously separated from each other, it gave a nice sense of privacy.
Inside the room, the furniture and fixtures also followed the 'kubo' theme.

I enjoyed hanging out in the veranda, lounging around while taking in the breeze and view.

There were different restaurants and bars around. Il Patio serves Italian cuisine. The Bamboo Cafe fronting the beach serves different local and international food. The Pirates Disco Bar looked so cool since the whole bar is shaped into a pirate ship.

We did't get to do much of the activities cause we were there to relax and chill out. And the perfect place to do it was on the beach. The private beach area was so beautiful, the white sand was so smooth and fine. There were no small pebbles or stones, I loved walking around barefoot. The waters were calm and crsytal clear, it felt so refreshing dipping and swimming around. I think I might have spend 70% of my time hanging around the beach for the whole duration of our stay.

I heard people say that Dakak is already debilitated but after being there I beg to disagree. Though there are some areas in the resort that looks kind of old, the resort is well maintained and it still remains beautiful. It was a perfect place to relax and unwind.
