Bacolod Pavillion Resort Hotel - Bacolod City, Negros Occidental

7 posts in this topic

Greetings:

 

I went via ferry from Cebu Province to Panay (Ilo-Ilo City) direct, and then from Ilo-Ilo City, via fast craft, across to Bacolod City, Negros Occidental. I returned to Cebu by land and fast craft, from Bacolod to San Carlos, San Carlos to Toledo City, and Toledo City to Carcar, Cebu.

 

The return trip I took will take you from Bacolod City to San Carlos City, via Salvador Benedicto. A bus trip on this route takes about 2.5 hours to 3.0 hours. You can drive it in less time, though. Bacolod City is the capitol of Negros Occidental and is about 87 kilometers west of San Carlos City, located on the opposite coast of Negros Island. The drive across the island is breathtaking at times. The scenes are quite beautiful traveling through the mountains. I would recommend it to anyone.

 

While there, I was able to meet up with Turbota (Ron) and another fellow I have known for a number of years, Ray. I am glad I was able to meet up with Ron, who was quite hospitable an fetched us at the mall to go have a drink and chat with him for a while. Thanks, Ron.

 

That evening, Ray's brother-in-law drove me to a hotel that I wasn't sure about at first, as I thought it may be too pricey upon initially viewing it. It is The Bacolod Pavillon Resort Hotel. However, after viewing the rooms, as well as the tariff sheet, I was impressed with the room quality, the cleanliness of the hotel, and the associated room pricing.

 

A photo I stole from Skyscraper City:

The Bacolod Pavillon Resort Hotel is very close to the pier, where you can secure a fast craft or slow ferry across to Ilo-ilo, or to other points in the Philippines.

 

Here is the contact information for the hotel/resort, in case you would like to book your next stay in Bacolod:

The De Luxe room amenities included: Refrigerator, direct dial phone, air-con, hot & cold shower, a western toilet, two large windows (corner of the building room), and two double beds, all in a a large spacious room.

 

The only other room I viewed, prior to checking in, was an Executive Room. It had a kitchenette, separate bedroom, and a sitting area as well. Had I stayed longer than one night, I definitely would have chosen this room. However, I didn't need the extra frills the Executive Room offered. So, I chose the De Luxe Room instead.

 

Other amenities offered by the hotel / resort, are a swimming pool, ample parking area outside, bar & restaurant cafe, room service until 1:00am, function rooms, and a backup generator in case of brownouts.

 

The hotel offers 87 rooms with free breakfast for two, on five floors in the hotel. The resort offers 21 rooms, without breakfast.

 

Here are the hotel room rates:

Tycoon: Php 3,500

Presidential: Php 3,000

Junior Suite: Php 2,500

Executive: Php 2,000

De Luxe: Php 1,500

 

Here are the room rates for the resort, which is located on the same property as the hotel:

 

Suite Room: Php 1,350

Family Room: Php 1,100

Standard Room: Php 900

I was not very during our one night stay, only ordering some fish fingers and soft drinks. The fish fingers were quite good, though.

 

The Bacolod Pavillon Resort Hotel offers drop offs for you, to any point in the City, or to the Bacolod-Silay Airport, which is a bit out of town. The current rates for any point in town, are: Php 200 for two persons, and Php 75 for each additional person. To drop you at the airport, the current rate is: Php 600 for two persons, and Php 150 for each additional person.

 

We were quite happy with our stay at The Bacolod Pavillon Resort Hotel. There is no doubt that I will stay there again, upon my next trip to Bacolod.

 

Date of stay: 21, July, 2009

 

Thanks for reading,

we went from Bacolod to Cebu via San Carlos a few weeks ago. A sugar cane truck overturned and blocked the road totally. There was a massive tailback on both sides that must have stretched for miles. There was nothing we could really do. Even though it would have been awkward with our bags, after about an hour, we looked around for somebody who might be ready to take us the 60km to San Carlos on a motorbike or motorbikes, but drew a blank. The bus was stranded for four hours.

 

after a while this hawker turned up with water and food like hard boiled eggs. I was sure he'd take advantage and inflate his prices, but he didn't. The eggs were still only 5.

 

in Bacolod, we were only there for one night and stayed at a crummy dive for 350. It had aircon and cable tv though. My attitude about Bacolod is that it's such a dump, you might as well cut your losses and stay in a right shithole.

I always enjoy reading your positive position on the Philippines, Whippy. Thanks for sharing. :kidding:

      Very strangely this is not being reported anywhere in the mainstream news. Last nights (Sat) 7.50 from Ormoc to Cebu collided with another vessel not too far from the port of Cebu. Wife's parents were passengers. MIL texted us at home around 9.30pm that they had just hit another vessel while still out at sea. Sadly the collision was at full cruising speed and apparently "rear ended" another vessel, a barge or similiar sized vessel. Almost all of the passengers which appeared to be not numerous, sustained some injuries, but no deaths. The response of 2Go is being slammed by all aboard, with not telling the passengers any updates, to not giving out where berthed info to making the walking injured walk to waiting relatives outside the port. A large proportion of the passengers were asleep at the time of the collision and have sustained injuries consistent from being thrown from a seat, cuts, abrasions, missing teeth, severe bruising etc. It has been said that the 2Go vessel rode up and onto the other vessel. Quick thinking crew on the other vessel tied the two together to prevent the 2Go cat from becoming adrift or possible sinking.

      I'm driving to SFO later today (Sat) and will land in Cebu Monday morning... pretty damn excited, not looking forward to that long ass flight. I will take a small hit at currency exchange at the airport for some quick cash, then go to a Bank by the mall later on. I am bringing some cash and trying to avoid the fees for using my CC in Cebu. Lots of tee shirts, shorts have been packed, flip flops, sandals, and a pair of comfortable slip on's and short socks for the slip on's (not for the sandals  ) some American snacks, protein bars, and I plan on buying a ton of bottled water... no tap. I had a few trips scheduled but the weather looks like it will cancel a couple of them... just going to play it by the seat of my arse.  This will be my first visit in what I hope will be many. This is a precursor to possibly living there in the coming years once my mom (who I take care of) passes... I am so out of this chit state of Cali!!!. On paper I am planning on 3 visits this year, next in July, then at the end of the year, probably Christmas time (only if I am good with the first visit) I will be meeting the woman I have been talking with for half a year, and I will be meeting a member from LINC who befriended me after I got blasted by a few on here when I mentioned meeting a woman, and how I was supposedly doing it all wrong. (Thanks to Shadow for giving me some pointers) If I don't like the Phils then my next targets are Belize and Chiang Mai (possible business op with a friend) Nothing carved in stone, but I hope the Phils works for me. I'll probably be silent for about the next 2 weeks... but no promises if I feel I need to share some pics or something. In regard to pics... I noticed on here there are very few photos of of the members or things they are doing etc... shy? Scared? Protective? Too ugly?    Peace

      Is this normal in the Philippines ? Is this wacko or am I living in an altered state ? My long term girlfriend is getting ready to sign a contract for an unbuilt half of duplex of 26 sq. meters for half a million p. in a small city in Mindanao. Nice fight ensued on Valentines Day. I have visited but will not be moving there for a year and have no idea about buiding costs in the area. This seems way off the chain to me, but what do I know? Any knowlegeable input would be appreciated.

      A friend has an Iphone 5 and it needs a screen, can anyone recommend a reasonable and reliable place to have it done? I may bring it with me to get it fixed for him if it can be done for a reasonable amount
