|One of the villas at Playa Tropical|
Outside the resort hotel, there was nothing fancy to see but within the Playa Tropical premises, the scenery was breathtaking. The Bali-inspired villas alone were mesmerizing to the eyes with their pointed roofs. The Bali-inspired interior decoration was also all over the hotel from the rooms to the restaurant facade.
Check out here my post about Playa Tropical's infinity pool.
|The hotel room I booked|
Bedroom: My hotel room was very spacious. I was especially fond of the fancy-looking cabinet next to the dresser. The only downside I discovered was that there was no beachfront view and electrical sockets were installed inside the bathroom and nowhere in the bedroom.
Security: The door automatically locks when you close it from the outside which is a good security feature for guests.
|Partas Deluxe interior; Municipality of Currimao|
Transportation: Since I have a no-plane-ride self-policy on my cross-mainland trips, I opted to take the deluxe bus of Partas which costs P200 more than the basic air conditioned version. The deluxe bus only has a 28 seating capacity. This is because the bus has a row of 1-seaters for solo travelers which worked very well for me. I was able to recline it all the way the level that I wanted enough to get a good sleep during the trip.
If you've traveled very far from Metro Manila to Currimao, Ilocos Norte, you might as well visit neighboring municipalities like Paoay and Batac which I did. Just ask the resort hotel receptionist for tips.
