Day Tour at Vista Tala Resort and Recreational Park

Lloyd and I planned a date as it’ll probably be the last non-holiday weekday this year that we were both free. He has resumed working as I’m writing this while I chose to be sort of jobless. We really didn’t had any idea on what to do then. Good thing my former officemate told me about Vista Tala Resort and Recreational Park. Thanks, Alvin!Vista Tala Resort

 

I immediately contacted Vista Tala Resort & Recreational Park for their rates. This was what I found out.

This seems reasonable enough for us considering that we heard good reviews of the resort and the PhP 200 (or 4.24 USD) of the day tour rate is consumable for the resort’s food.

 

As it was highly recommended that we make a reservation on our preferred date, we reserved by depositing 50% of our day tour rates. We received afterward a booking confirmation which also served as our guest pass through their security check.

Only guests with a gate pass are allowed to enter their premise.

 

We had a good first impression on entering the resort premises. The place felt secured and there were adequate parking spaces, so Lloyd easily got to park the car. We then proceeded to Vista Tala’s information center.

We were greeted with bright smiles by the staff as we entered the center. We settled the remaining balance, received our PhP 200 (or 4.24 USD) food stubs, and off we went to the swimming pool area.

By the way, since it was out of town, we had to bring a chaperone as usual. Lloyd and I brought then both our moms plus Lloyd’s brother which was a first time experience for us. We normally just went out with my family for out of town trips.

For those who are roughly our same age group and are also in a BF-GF relationship, we suggest that you bring along your family members with you when you go on an out of town trip. We have to remember that our parents are getting older and/or our siblings are becoming busier, but we still have more time to be alone with our BF/GF once we get married.

This is one of our 2-3 group photos together within Vista Tala resort.

And if you’re wondering why we rode a golf cart buggy, this was the form of transportation used to go around the resort. Vista Tala Resort and Recreational Park wasn’t that big. However, the path towards the swimming area was uphill which could be tiring for some guests.

 

Since we went here on a weekday, we felt like resort owners as we had the pool area to ourselves for some time. It was really relaxing for us.

One of the staff led us to probably the best cottage of the resort in my opinion. The cottage’s name was DUNSULAN FALLS which was the closest to the edge of the mountain/ hill where the resort was situated.

We didn’t only had an easy pool access, but we also got to enjoy the cool, fresh mountain breeze and, most importantly, we had an amazing view as well.

 

We had a hearty lunch at Vista Tala restaurant which we greatly enjoyed. We also ordered our snacks there. We then proceeded to check out Vista Tala’s rooms while having our food go down.

Upon returning to the pool area, we made sure to maximize our day tour fee. We had a photo session at their swimming pool with a scenic view at the backdrop. It was our loss though that we didn’t bring a cool floater like a unicorn, watermelon or a pizza for a cooler photo opportunity.

Although some former guests stated that the pool was dirty, we believed otherwise. We think it’s unavoidable for a pool with lots of plants surrounding it to have floating insects from time to time. We’ve had a similar experience in similar resorts so this didn’t prevent us from enjoying their two pools which are 4ft and 6ft deep respectively.

We also relaxed in their jacuzzi pool. Yes, I’m not peeing on this one.

Overall, our trip to Bataan to experience a day tour in Vista Tala Resort and Recreational Park was worth it. We took pleasure in the wonderful natural view, the lovely pool and their in-house food.  Thus, it’s a really great place to relieve from stress from work or even studies.

We hope Vista Tala Resort and Recreational Park maintain the beauty, the cleanliness and the security of the resort even though they’ll soon have recreational activities such as a zip line, ATV and etc.

  2. Hey, this is one of the nicer if not the nicest resort in Bataan no? It’s very nice. Regarding the pool, it really goes a long way whenever there is someone using the pool, to have someone come pick up debris with a net man lang. Paalam lang sa guest syempre.

  4. If I will only consider the view from the pool, I will agree with the price. However, it is still a bit expensive for me. I tend to be kuripot. Lol. Anyway, to experience this once looks like worth it if you go here with friends or family. Truly relaxing!

  5. I’ve already heard of this one in one of those viral Facebook posts. It’s nice to see more photos of this resort, and it seems like there wasn’t too many people in your photos. 🙂 The rates are cheap too for a day tour. I think I’ll go here sometime and spend an overnight instead.

  6. I always prefer going to such places on weekdays, as it makes us feel royal:)
    I see this place is really big. And the sceneries are nice too… as for the Google pin; I feel most of the places these days, are not checked in properly on the map. But you can rectify it for yourself so that the next person does not get lost!

    • Hi, thanks for asking. It’s better to reserve especially if you’re going on a weekend. They only accept a limited number of people per day.
