Overnight at Cristina Villas

Friday, June 24, 2011

Last June 11, I attended a wedding of my good friend at Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish in Antipolo City. Reception was held at Cristina Villas. It was a mountain resort and hotel located in Antipolo as well. They said that the resort is one of the oldest resort in Antipolo, and it's very evident because of how the hotel looks like, and the elevator... it was like elevator in an old hospital. Creepy!

Anyways, before I move on and show you how the resort and pool looks like in Cristina Villa. Let me show you images from fire dance show presented during the wedding program at the reception. Ang galing, di ba! May Fire Dance pa! :)

Firedancers


The wedding party ended at 11:00 PM. I know it's too early for a party to end but there are only 3 persons left in the dance floor (which is us), and we're too tired dancing, and dancing and dancing! :)


Since some of the couple's friend will spend overnight at the resort too, me and my friends decided to move and get a standard room for the 7 of us. Imagine how we positioned ourselves to sleep! The room costs approximately PHP 1,900 with plated breakfast for two! Entrance fee in the resort was already paid by the couple since they held their wedding at the resort. Entrance fee is PHP 140 for adult - daytime and PHP 160 for adult - night time. For more info regarding resort's fee and rental, you may check this link.


There are numerous pool / type of pool located in the resort. The first one that we had check was this one.

"Sorry for the poor picture - wala akong tripod!"


I must say this area has the most number of people. Cottages were located upstairs and there were slides, too. But too bad, you still need to make effort for you to enjoy the slide, you need to go up, hassle!


Unlike the pool in La Vista Pansol, the water here is very very very cold! It was like water came from a freezer, it could almost be an ice. Because I always chill quickly in the water, I get out from the pool and took my towel after awhile.


The next morning, me and my friends roamed the place. And there was too many people (not in the picture)! :)

There's a way up, so we went up and explored the place. There are still areas in the resort that was being constructed. Hopefully bigger slides! :)


From all the pool I saw, this one is my favorite.


CV Pool 2


It looks like an infinity pool. Too bad I wasn't able to experience swimming there because of the wedding preparations and so forth, we just sneaked out and roamed the place as quickly as we can.


Here's another pool that can be found at the side area of the hotel. This pool is designed for kids and play.


CV Pool 3


There are only 2 pools opened during at night the first one and the pool across Basilica (area for events - it was where the couple's wedding party took place). Sorry if I had no picture of it because I'm not in the mood to take picture - moody lang? But seriously, I forgot to because I was too tired from an all day wedding preparation to wedding program.


It was 1:00 AM when we went back to our room. We were hungry and there were no stalls opened except for the sari-sari store outside the resort which only sells soft drinks and biscuits. Cristina Villa is open 24 hours but its restaurant / cafeteria is closed? Restaurant or cafeteria shouldn't be closed on this type of resorts when they operates 24 hours, right? Haiz... We can't do anything but to sleep hungry! Mahirap, nakatulog ng gutom! :(


We woke up at around 10:00 AM... and still hungry. My friends weren't able to get the free plated breakfast for two, too bad!


Before we checked out, I went to the other room first (where the couple's friend stayed for the night) and took a picture of the overlooking.

That's what I love in here, a relaxing view from the hotel room. A great overlooking, indeed. What a beautiful morning started our day! :)


We checked out at 12:00 PM. Before we went home, we dropped by at the nearest Jollibee and indulged ourselves with food!

  4. I think it's the best resort in Antipolo currently.. bagong renovate kasi (and still ongoing in some areas), pero dati walang matinong resort sa Antipolo.. puntahan lang kasi malapit.. pero kung ako na taga-diyan hindi ko pinupuntahan kasi marumi tubig, CR, etc.. pero sa ngayon they're improving it and it shows naman na.. :)

    yan na rin ang pinakamalaki AFAIK.. ang dami pang pools!.. :) hehe
