Last month, we had a chance to spend an overnight at Thunderbird Resort in Binangonan, Rizal. We got two Superior Rooms, each having two queen-sized beds, since only 2 adults (plus 2 kids) are allowed in one room.
+ There were more than enough pillows. There’s hot/cold water. Everything looks clean.
- The pillows had a very faint smell of cigarettes but I wasn’t that surprised as this is a casino resort.
We went with the kids knowing they have a play area and swimming pools just across the rooms.
There’s also this particular table beside the pools that’s overlooking the city and the golf course.
It’s no surprise that the place is big (knowing there’s a golf course), so we knew we can’t just drive and dine outside of the resort for lunch and dinner. It’s a good chance to try their Koi Restaurant.
Some came in big servings such as the Three Cheese Carbonara, which my kids shared. I’m a lover of Pinakbet with Bagnet, but I didn’t like theirs. Other orders such as Tuna Steak, Crispy Pata and Beef Tapa tasted bland. But Tenderloin Salpicao A la Asiana tasted great!
Seafood Medley, Salmon Fillet and Sinigang na Baboy were great. Chicken Adobo and Pasta Bolognese were just ok.
+ The lady in the counter, and also the one who took our orders was very friendly and courteous.
- Basketball was on tv, and there’s this crew guy in green (I wasn’t able to get his name), who was standing in front of our table, who was supposedly sweeping the floor. Note that we were the only customers that night. Duh?
