One of the things that I noticed about Region 1 is the lack of boost when it comes to Tourism. Being a resident of Dagupan City, Pangasinan for more than twenty years, I am more than happy when I heard that a five-star resort is being developed in Poro Point, San Fernando, La Union and yep, it’s Thunderbird Resorts Poro Point!
Together travel bloggers and writers, I was able to experience how it feels like to stay in Thunderbird Resorts Poro Point for 3 Days and 2 Nights. Finally, a world-class resort in Ilocos Region!
San Fernando, La Union is just an hour and a half away from Dagupan City (at least 5-6 hours from Manila). From Manila, the group took a flight to San Fernando, La Union via ZestAir. The trip was 45 minutes long and it was my first time to see the airport there.
After a few minutes, we were finally redirected to Thunderbird Resorts Poro Point. The view from afar really made me excited 😛 We first ate our late lunch/merienda. Let’s just say that the meal is more than enough to feed a hungry traveler. I really loved the soup and yes, the main course!
After eating, we went straight to our respective rooms. My room mate is Ruby and we took pictures of our lovely and spacious room when we got in:
Although it was raining, we managed to take pictures.
We ate our late dinner at around 9PM. While waiting, I used their wifi to surf online. I am happy that their wifi connection is free and fast. Other hotels (even the expensive ones) still charge their customers for wifi usage. I’m glad Thunderbird Resorts is an exemption.
Here’s a sneak peak to what we ate for dinner:
I guess the pictures can explain on why my tummy’s full that night 😛 I was able to chat with the rest and we went back to our assigned rooms after an hour. I blogged a bit and went straight to bed to sleep. The very comfortable bed and linens were like calling me to sleep and relax. Oh my, i really love this feeling! It’s like spending a night in Santorini, Greece not to work but just to relax and take a piece of haven.
I recharged for a fun-filled Tuesday. Thunderbird Resorts Poro Point initiated a city tour, surfing lessons and the media launch of The Point Residences.
More to come in my next entry 😛
