How time flies! It’s was time again for our annual trip to Hamilo Coast. We started going in 2008 when it was so new that we had to use tents and there weren’t any amenities yet. In 2009 the beach club was built and I started blogging. Last year I was amazed how much the whole resort has grown.
Here’s my group of HS friends. Lots of other families and kids who are now grown up were also with us.
The first order of the day was a scrumptious buffet lunch at the ballroom. This year the spread was all Filipino food. As usual the food was excellent.
These trio of spreads are a staple year after year and they are as good as the first time I tried them.
garlic cheese, tinapa and chicken liver spreads
Their Filipino salads were everybody’s favorites.
green mango salad
salted egg and tomato salad
tinapa or smoked fish
pinakbet, monggo, kare kare, pancit luglog and penne carbonara
halo halo bar
I was happy with my diet meal of grilled chicken breast and salad. I cheated a little by getting some of the yummy spreads.
My dessert was super sweet mango and not so sweet melon.
After lunch we went to the Beach Club.
A new boutique, Kultura, has opened right at the lobby of the Beach Club.
There are now many water activities available.
speed boat, banana boat
I finally got some pictures of the Sun Coral Cafe where a lunch buffet was served.
Around 4:00 pm we all met back at the ballroom for afternoon merienda (snack time, the most important 4th or 5th meal for Filipinos). In case you’re wondering I had coffee.
On Friday I will feature the Pico Sands Hotel in Hamilo Coast.
