The town of Morong became our base of operation during our three-day tour around Bataan and Brizo Resort became our camp. The trip coincided with the province's Pawikan Festival and our accommodation of choice was perfect, being only a few minutes’ drive away from the festival grounds.
|VIEW OF THE POOL AREA AND THE SEA FROM THE RESTAURANT|
|OPEN VERANDA FROM THE ROOMS OVERLOOKING THE POOL|
Brizo Hotel & Resort is a relatively new beach-side resort in Morong. The paintjob still seemed fresh as we walked into its open-aired mini-lobby and were assisted by its friendly crew to our second floor room.
|SPACIOUS ROOMS GOOD ENOUGH FOR FOUR INDIVIDUALS|
We were billeted at their Super Deluxe Pool View Room (Php 5,500.00 per night), one of the four room types in the resort, and it is huge. It sports a flatscreen TV, a fridge, two queen-sized beds and can easily accommodate four guests. It has an en suite toilet and bath with complimentary towels and toiletries. Furnishing and decors are a bit utilitarian, but everything is very clean.
|CLEAN TOILET AND BATH|
My only beef with our room is the connecting door to the next room. The guests at the other side can lock it, but we can't; a major privacy and security flaw which can be easily remedied by a simple metal lock. Good thing our friends were staying next door.
|AFTERNOON LOW-TIDE AT PANI BEACH|
|A FISHERMAN’S BOAT DOCKED ALONG THE SHORE OF PANI BEACH|
Brizo Hotel sits right along Pani Beach which stretches for a couple of kilometers (good for morning and afternoon walks). We immediately checked out the water the same night we checked in. The sand, as most in Bataan are, is gray and a bit course. It really wasn't a problem for us though as we were just too happy we could swim on the sea once again.
|FAMILY ENJOYING BRIZO’S SWIMMING POOL|
For those not really enticed by gray sand, the resort has its own pool right by their Wheelhouse Restaurant. It’s not that large but is good enough for quick laps and a dip. We usually hang out here right after their set breakfast—which is complimentary, by the way—and during evenings, with beer and stories to boot.
