Coco Grove Beach Resort: Siquijor’s Hidden Paradise

It only took us 15 minutes to travel from Siquijor port to Coco Grove. Arriving at the resort, we were welcomed by courteous people and a very cold drink.

Resort and Beach

As its name implies, Coco Grove houses a lot of coconut trees. The entire place was elegantly set with white sand beach and lavish amenities. Offering a very secluded location to stay in, you’ll get that very serene and relaxing feeling that you’d hardly get from the busy city life. And if you plan to really isolate yourself from the rest of the world, no one can bother you here since there is no mobile phone signal.

You can choose to swim in their two big and clean swimming pools, one of which has a floating bar. Whenever you get hungry or simply want to have a drink, you can have your order served without getting off the pool. Better yet, plunge yourself in the beach and go snorkeling with the resort’s own marine sanctuary namely “Tubod Marine Sanctuary”. Probably not as much variety of marine life compared to other renowned snorkeling sites, the thing is you can easily get to the site as it is just a few meters away from the shore. You can rent gears for only PHP 50. Getting off the shore to the sea, you’ll be greeted by aquatic plants scattered almost everywhere.

Food and Restaurants

You’ll also enjoy eating in their two beachfront restaurants. Food is a bit pricey as you might normally expect for a cozy place. We opted to eat at the Sunset restaurant. Food was ok, nothing quite exceptional. Serving time always took a little long. Staffs wore traditional Filipino costumes. For our additional needs like bottled water, we bought in a store outside, just beside the resort as the price there was definitely much cheaper.

Rooms and other Amenities

There is a free internet wifi but only near the reception area. Aside from the pool bar, there is also a garden bar with a game area beside it where you can play darts and billiards. They also have their own souvenir shop and a small massage center. Some of us availed of their body massage for PHP 500.

The whole area is big with rooms quite far away from one another. Rooms were sophisticatedly designed except for some worn out ones, specifically the “Bougainvilla” room. Despite of it being old, it’s located near the beach area (probably the closest). Rooms are clean with basic toiletries. Since it was a peak season when we went there, almost all rooms were occupied and they just tried to accommodate us. As such, we had to change room for our second day. Staffs were very helpful to assist us and transfer our belongings. The only weird thing was that when we opened our room, there was already someone inside it taking a good rest. The foreign guest was surprised to see us as we unlocked the door. According to her, the staffs led her there. She was very nice and apologetic. We then learned that she was part of a medical team doing a mission in the area.

A flashlight was provided for each room because at night, the whole place gets absolutely dark with no lights set anywhere in the pathways.
