After having fun at Hagimit Falls, we asked Manong driver to take us to the beach. I specifically asked him to take us to the resort with the giant slide doing to the beach. I am not sure if he understood what I said because he took us to Blue Jaz Resort. After seeing the slide, I told him that this is not the resort I was talking about and he replied – may slide din naman saka mas mura dito.

Okay fine! The place is good enough for rest and it has a swimming pool. I accompanied mamamia in paying the entrance fee and we went straight to the beach. I was still looking around for the pool and bar.

Then we saw the beach. So the water is about 20 meters away from the shore then our ever reliable driver said, low tide na kasi dapat sa umaga dito. I can’t help it, i literally laughed out really hard and left the table. I was joined by mamamia as I went to the pool. So if he knew that it will be low tide after lunch, why would he take us to the falls first? The answer, just like day 1 tour, he is still sober from last night’s drinking. If we could only get a new driver as this point!

From Davao, there are pump boats waiting for guests who are interested in having a day tour in most of the resorts. They have their own ports too. In our case, we could have gotten into a better resort only if our driver is not as sober as manong.

After taking some pictures of the pool, I asked mamamia to transfer with me at the bar. I asked for their menu then I changed my mind and asked the waiter if they have red wine. Unfortunately they don’t so I started reading through their cocktails list and did not find anything I want.  We ordered buko juice and halo-halo instead. We had a great time in the bar until our driver acted up. Yes, just like kids, you would know if he is hungry and throughout our Davao trip I can say he needs to have a dose of combatrin!

We transferred to the shed/ table and had our food prepared. Tito Wally had a drink with our driver and us girls went around,  enjoyed the beach (after hours of waiting) and stayed by the pool. If we would think about our driver, we would only ruin our trip. So instead, we just enjoyed ourselves.

The resort is fine but not the high end resort you would usually see us spending our time. It’s well kept and the people are very friendly.
