Let me share my experience and 5 reasons why I loved my visit and stay at Masamirey Cove Resort :
1. HUNDRED ISLANDS NATIONAL PARK
Hundred Islands is the first national park located in Alaminos, Pangasinan. With a total of 124 islands at low tide and 123 islands at high tide which is scattered in Lingayen Gulf. This place is filled with a lot of activities and beautiful islands that you’ll surely enjoy. From island hopping, zip lining to water activities this place has it all!2. AUTHENTIC TASTE OF ILOCANO AND PANGASINENSE FOODS
I was very surprised by their multi-cuisine, it was really delicious, from appetizers, main course to desserts. The room comes with free breakfast which was excellent, but my personal favorite was their Daing Bangus breakfast ( Dagupan Pangasinan is the Bangus / milkfish/ capital of the Philippines ) and their Alaminos longganisa! Perfectly go well with brewed coffee.
For lunch, we ordered Salted Egg Prawn which is one of their best sellers, Ilocano Pakbet, Bulalo Salpicao and for dessert, we had the famous Tupig but with a twist! The sweet had an egg filling which was tasty.
For dinner, we had Pinakbet salad, Pinaputok na Bangus Belly, Lechon Kawali Sinigang and Inkalti ( an Ilocono Founde with the ingredients of Bilo-Bilo that can be dipped with coco jam ) and Patupat with ice cream ( an Ilokano delicacy made from sticky rice )
They also have beers and cocktails over there!
3 . BALINESE INSPIRED VILLAS
Like I told you, I’m really into that Bali vibes kind of places, their villas are really beautiful, it has a very minimalist earth color interior which I super loved. They have Netflix inside the room! ( I know Netflix is life right hahaha! ) Toiletries , a water kettle and tea.
PS. Their room key is kinda tricky to use.
4 . THE BEACH
Masamirey Cove is a beachfront resort, imagine yourself just chilling out in the beach right? Looking at its waves, drinking a nice cold drink while watching sunset, dreamy right?! Well, dreams do come true! Cause I’ve experienced them all! And it was absolute bliss! One word to describe it! I was in paradise at that moment!
5 . (INSTA)GRAM WORTHY
If I say it’s gram worthy! That means it’s really attractive from every corner! Masamirey Cove will definitely give your feed that #IslandVibes feels. From the trees, sand to the resort itself! They even do set ups by request like dine under the stars or breakfast by the beach set up. Perfect for date night huh?! #DontForgetToCaptureThatMemories
