Convenient, comfortable, and capacious – three words that best describe Casa Del Pio. A merely 1 hr. and 30 minute drive from Manila (considering the city traffic/45 minutes without traffic) stands this superb resort in Laguna. Well situated just a few kilometers outside the Metro, Casa Del Pio is your next choice of accommodation for whatever event you may want to assemble.
Fenced with black iron gates, Casa Del Pio will welcome you with ample parking as it has several parking spaces outside. Moreover, you can also park your vehicles right through your doorstep by the guest houses.
The modern architecture combined with simple Filipino structures around the area of the resort gives it a very homey feel. The place can accommodate a maximum of 25-30 pax without the feeling of being over-crowded.
Casa Del Pio offers fully air-conditioned rooms with private bath and shower for each room. The welcoming atmosphere through the entire resort will definitely make you feel like it is your own rest house away from your home in the city.
The resort exceeds anyone’s expectations when it comes to amenities. It has a covered hall which can house roughly a maximum of 50 people, complete with tables, chairs, karaoke, flat screen television, outdoor ceiling fans and modern Filipino-style lighting fixtures. Beside the covered hall is a kitchen-alley where guests can cook their own meals or grill food by the swimming pool. The kitchen comes with a freezer, water dispenser, a single burner gas-range, and cooking utensils. Aside from the personal bathrooms inside each guest house, there are also toilets and shower rooms just beside the covered hall.
Guests can enjoy a dip at the resort’s pool located just behind the covered hall. The resort has a kiddie-pool and a spacious adult pool where you can hangout and have fun with your family and friends.
Casa Del Pio is a complete splendor, a combination of contemporary living in the middle of nature’s beauty. You can enjoy breathing some fresh air by the hammock which are adorably hanging by the trees, or you may opt to sit on the wooden chairs outside the guest houses.
Bamboo fixtures by the pool gives a warm-touch to the resort at night. Lights hanging by the trees allow guests to go for a night swim without worries. Wooden-resort chairs are situated just around the pool-side so anyone can rest under the shade of the trees during day-time.
The resort humbly reflects the love for nature of its owners seeing how they preserved the trees inside the area. I am dearly thankful that I was able to experience Casa Del Pio first-hand. The staff were very accommodating as well, need not to say that they checked-up on us every time. It was just the perfect place for our college reunion, and I couldn’t think of anywhere else but Casa Del Pio. Everyone of us enjoyed the place and the bonding. I highly recommend this resort to anyone who wants a quick escape from the toxicity of the Metro.
