Tita Pines' hospitality

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 20 Aug 2011
The good:
Its very homey, the place is quite big. You can laze around. They have their own pool and beach front. Tita Pines - the main caretaker/resort Manager is very accommodating. They serve locally home-cooked food. We stayed in the non-airconditioned cottage. Comfort level is ok. Good for backpackers Don't expect 3-star accommodation experience.

I loved the idea that its the "bahay-kubo" the filipino-style hut. Yet is has the amenities of tiled CR and hot water. The cottages are quite big it can accommodate at least 4 people in one room.

The down-side and what you need to take note of:
There are a lot of gnats insects (nik-nik). Have insect repellent on-hand wherever you go around Polillo province. Make sure you that you use mosquito net in the evening inside your huts. Its quite common around the area since the gnats came from the mangroves.

There are no intercom/telephone connection nor internet access. Coordinating and calling for assistance needs to be done of foot. wherein huts/lodgings has some distance to the main area.

The beach resort is recommend for people who wants to stay there. Not for adventurers who just need an overnight stay. Since the beach resort is quite far (30 mins) from the town.

When we went there it was holy week. They are full. They are quite undermanned. So patience in room service and requirements is needed.
