LAIYA COCO GROVE RESORT
Coco Grove has a 250-guest capacity With an overnight rate of P5,400+ for a couple, Coco Grove is a bargain. The rate is inclusive of buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner, with kid free of charge. Don’t expect the food to be as mouthwatering as in, say, Golden Sunset. Food in Coco Grove is ordinary.which, we were told, could actually balloon to a 900-person limit. This beach resort is nestled in a grove of coconuts, complete with bamboo “walkways” at the top of the trees (to enable harvesters to move from one tree to another without climbing the tree every time.The room is not exactly new, but clean. It’s conveniently located in front of the swimming pool and a stone’s throw from the beach. No water heater or intercoms, in case you ask. No TVs, either. But you don’t go here to watch TV. You go here to sleep, er, commune with nature and enjoy outdoor fun.
