Dapitan City -- Dakak Park and Beach Resort

I have been planning to go to Dakak last October 2, 2011.  But due to problems between the PAL Management and its employees, my Airphil Express flight to Cebu was delayed thus making me be left behind by another flight (another airline) to Dipolog City.  I never felt very dismayed though since I got the airline tickets at a very cheap promo fare.

And then, a week ago, my friend Cherylenne invited me to join her godmother’s group for a trip to Dakak Park and Beach Resort for only Php 1,500.00!  I never thought twice about joining!  The trip was organized by Fantasyland Travel and Tours.  It was a promo which requires a minimum of 50 persons.  It includes round trip transfers from CDO to Dakak, City Tour at Dapitan, Dakak Family Pavilion Accommodation, one breakfast, one dinner and a Ride All the Rides at Gloria’s Fantasyland!  Now isn’t that sulit?
the comfy bus!
The travel itself took about 8 hours.  We left CDO aboard the Fantasyland tourist bus at 3:30 and arrived at Dapitan City at 11:30.  We had our quick breakfast at Jollibee Osamiz, about halfway between the two cities.  Upon arrival, the bus changed drivers and immediately we were toured around the historical places in the city.  After that, we had lunch at the Dampa.  And then we checked-in at Dakak Park and Beach Resort.  I was so amazed by the placed.  It was enormous and very peaceful.  

According to our guide, the name Dakak came from two words “Dakong Kakahuyan,” meaning a vast forest.  Indeed, the name speaks so for itself.  Dakak is a very large place surrounded with old trees.  There were several cottages developed to accommodate guests.  The resort has a golf course, tennis court, chapel, horse stable, several restaurants, pools and a disco bar.  It also offers several water sports activities such as jetski, snorkeling and even scuba diving.  There are several restaurants which offer food at a reasonable prize.  The café latte costs only 75 pesos while the very delicious hamburger delight (I can still remember the taste, so yummy!) is at 150 pesos.
Yes, Dakak is very enormous and it has these nice amenities...
We stayed in the family pavilion.  This is a dorm type room but with a taste of class.  Our room has seven double-decked beds which can accommodate two persons at the lower bunk and one at the upper.  There is a restroom with two toilet rooms and two shower rooms.  The room uses red fleece blankets which are very comfy.   It is made even more relaxing with the two air-conditioning units, television and a mini-bar.

All in all, Dakak is worth every penny.  I am sure to come back to this place and taste more of their yummy foods.

meet the world,
