Iloilo: Paon Beach Club

Paon Beach Club is a breather and rest for our tired bodies after almost a day on the road. From Roxas City, we do not have a definite place to stay since the initial plan of getting to Estancia before 2:00 P.M. is no longer viable. But thanks to a very friendly lady of Pilar, Capiz, who suggested Paon Beach Club to Mama.
After an hour and thirty minutes, finally we get to lay down our tired bodies. Paon Beach Club is a kilometer away from the center of Estancia, located in Brgy. Paon, Estancia. It was built and developed by the Barbas' in the 80's. This beachfront resort offers a very relaxing and comfortable place for travellers.
Our supposed overnight stay at Paon Beach Club was extended to a two nights, two days stay. Mainly because they just provided us the best experience and service any guest would want to have. Service oriented and patient enough to accommodate us, with our "kakulitan" and super late "changes of plan". Well the decision of getting the Isla Gigantes Tour package offered to me by the manager herself came after our dinner at Punot, which I'll say past 7:00 P.M......I knew its quite late to arrange such a request especially that telecom signals in the area is poor. But they did entertain and arrange everything for us. I find it so embarrassing that kitchen staff keep on going to our room for the changes of our early breakfast meal and packed lunch. Even it was so late, the manager asked our tour guide Kuya Rey to go to our room and introduce himself, so that the next day we will not have any difficulties in finding him.

Hmm, its a long post, I can't stop sharing of our whole experience. The food we had for the whole stay are excellent and delicious. But the tapsilog breakfast is the star, the tapa tastes like home, that on our last day, we all ordered Tapsilog. For our packed lunch and dinner, all came in big servings and you know that they never scrimp on the ingredients.

The day of our tour and up to the last day, during breakfast Kuya Rey prepared our tables and gave us an excellent service. Everyone from Manong security guards to Madam manager provided us the best that every guest needs. Our Paon Beach Club stay is a breather indeed. Thank You being a great "casa" of our "Panay Island Escapade."
