A week after our Crowne Plaza staycation, we went again for an exciting road trip to La Union.
Thunderbird Poro Point is a resort and casino with a 65-hectare Mediterranean-inspired dream destination in North Luzon. It’s a 6-hour drive from Manila via North Luzon Expressway, Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway and Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway. And since it’s a long drive, make sure the kids are loaded with toys and snacks to keep them entertained. Otherwise, they’ll end up grumpy the entire trip.
We have reached our destination at around 2 pm, timely to check-in. The staff are friendly and welcomed us with a cold glass of lemonade.
While checking in, others were enjoying an amazing view that overlooks the West Philippine Sea. It’s breathtaking! God is truly amazing with his works. Afterwards, we were assisted to our villa.
Welcome to our neighborhood!
We got 2 units of a fully furnished 2-bedroom villa for 12 adults and 4 kids. The place looks very neat and well-maintained.
The first floor consists of a living area, dining area, and the kitchen.
Glad to know cooking is allowed but make sure to bring your own utensils such as induction cooker, pans and etc.
At 4 pm, we went out to check the resort, while some went swimming.
What a breathtaking view!
In addition to the pool area, beach club, and jogging path, Thunderbird Poro Point also has spa and massage services, a golf course, a Fiesta Casino, basketball court, indoor playground for kids and kids-at-heart.
During our dinner time, we decided to try Olives Restaurant that serves Mediterranean cuisine. The food is tasty and delicious but I do hope they have more choices to try out. I find their menu so limited.
The next morning, we had our buffet breakfast with many varieties such as bread, salads and all-time Filipino breakfast faves.
I super love the danggit, tapa, and the fresh fruits served.
While I find the rates a bit high, my family and I did still have a great Santorini life at Thunderbird. It is definitely worth every cent.
