Villa Amparo Garden Beach Resort - Newest Attraction in Samal Island

Samal Island is very famous and if you're from Davao City, it's usually the first destination for family and friends outdoor trips. Spending weekend with my friends, we decided to try Villa Amparo Garden Beach Resort.

I was amazed with the photos I saw and according to many, Villa Amparo Garden Beach Resort is a very nice, elegant and modern type resort. Upon seeing from my very eye, Villa Amparo Garden Beach Resort is indeed a great and elegant resort. The islet they have was like with the Pearl Farm Beach Resort

What we did was first made a reservation just to be sure that they will accommodate us when we get there. The security is good, they have a guard at the entrance. We stroll around and found many nice spots for picture taking. They have many amenities that you could enjoy.

I like the Boardwalk most and the upper deck view. The Boardwalk is a man-made islet and up in the deck, you can see the whole view of the resort. It's overlooking.

They have a bar & restaurant with videoke machine. Videoke is 150.00 per hour. They also have a Japanese garden, boat dock, they have the Pavilion, function rooms for conference and big gathering events, they have kids’ sand box, grill area, fishing area, water sports facilities, and a camp site.

You can experience unlimited use of water sports for only 150.00. Vest is already included. Vest only for rent is also available for 50.00.

The closed rooms are very nice and clean. With clean bedding, TV inside each rooms. Closed cottages are vary from non air conditioned to air conditioned rooms. The comfort and shower rooms are also very clean. Looks like it was just recently opened but they were already open to public since last year 2011.

Additional points to security because they have a lot of CCTV cameras. From the outside of each cottages, the bar and resto and up to the boardwalk.
