for a big family like mine, it was really hard to look for travel deals that will suit our needs.. more often, deals would offer accommodation for 2 (and 2 kids free) and not for 4 kids and 2 adults.. my option would always be a accomodation for 4 (plus 2 kids free), yan saktong sakto sa amin ang mga ganyang deal.. so when Ensogo offered an overnight stay at Chateau Royale good for 4, I did not hesitate and bought not just one but 2 vouchers. That’s overnight stay + dinner and breakfast for 4 for 3000+ Php, swak na swak! And we can choose a room with two queen sized beds..para sa amin talaga ung deal na un! What’s the best part is, Chateau Royale has a playground, a swimming pool and horseback riding (plus rock climbing!).. if you ask me, it’s a perfect resort for a family with kidsss (stress on the s haha)
First weekend we went there, we had breakfast at Bag of Beans (wala na silang cinnamon roll ahuhu) then straight to the resort.. maulan nun pero keri lang.. (may baon akong sandamakmak na vitamin c at paracetamol just in case haha)..
Our second time to the resort, my 3rd boy requested for my ate to be with us (ay ako din naman gusto ko kasama sya haha) and the weekend trip also served as my first born’s birthday celebration (although his birthday falls on the 24th)..
too much of Bag of Beans so we decided to eat brunch somewhere else.. good thing a blogger mentioned about Molave Market that serves the freshest bulalo.. it’s waay cheaper compare to known bulaluhan in Batangas.. but still a little pricey considering the location..carinderia type with a not so carinderia kin of price 🙂 but yes, the beef is fresh!
But before having our lunch at Molave Market, we dropped by at Residence Inn for some animals sight seeing..unfortunately, by the time we were to feed the tiger and the lion, it rained so hard.. but we had a blast watching the show at the inn:
the next morning, me and the older boys strolled around the fog (with their cozy jacket.. the one I bought at Walmart.. in fairness cozy talaga!)
our second time was better than our first (though the food was better the last time we were there).. hindi masyadong maulan eh, so the kids had more fun at ako naman nagkaroon ng “me” time because ate was there.. I even tried rock climbing 🙂
We had lunch at Claw Daddy (Nuvali) on our way home (that’s another story)..
That’s two weekends of fun, fun and fun! at gusto nila ulit bumalik sa Chateau Royale with my mom and my other sisters and my nephews.. aba suki! In fairness, though the resort is not that classy, I’m quite happy with the service and our accommodation.
