Club Fort Med, Boljoon

Posted by Free-Spirited Vixen (Juliefe Cuenca) at 2:59 PM 0 comments

The foremost I can say about Club Fort Med is that it gave me a good impression which didn't quite last.  Upon entering the place, it was quite picturesque but in my personal experience, not worth it. While we were waiting near the entrance, we had to cover our noses and scrambled for fresh air. There was a pile of garbage dumped on the other side of the road fronting the gates! To our misfortune, the wind was blowing in our direction and so we couldn't see how this thing escaped the notice of whoever is running this place.
The Resort's Personnel
    The staff were cheerful and courteous. However, the resort was really undermanned. We had to wait for several hours before the extra beds were delivered. I couldn't help but notice that one personnel was running to and fro just to cater to several guests at the same time. 

    I don't think they are even paying their employees for the latter's overtime services. In fact, the resort's personnel just waited for the last customers in the restaurant, and they were already on their way home. Only one guard was left so if you would be needing some help during the night, don't expect it to be coming from the hotel's staff.

   Their room accommodations are as follows:
1) Casita (with private verada, ref & cable TV, see view)

Interior of one of the resort's Row House Type Rooms
    In our case, we availed three Row House Type Rooms for Php 2,200.00 each. For each room, they only allow a maximum of 2 adults and 2 children. We had to pay 200 pesos for every additional person but the extra bed is not yet included. You have to pay another 200 pesos for an additional single bed to be laid on the floor. Thus, you have to pay a total of 400 pesos for every extra person who will be staying for the night.
At our back are the Resort's Casita Rooms
This is the resort's restaurant and mini-bar
The resort has 3 pools. Two small ones, and one regular-sized pool.
    Shown below is an example of the resort's Japanese Cottage which cost 500 pesos. However, we stayed here for free since we availed of their room accommodations.
   For lack of any other shot, this is us posing by one of their Open Cottages which cost 400 pesos.
The Beach   
      The seabed was mostly rocky. It was summer but the currents were quite strong, and most of us got rashes and red spots presumably from the jellyfishes in the area. 
Karaoke Rooms   
       They also have 2 karaoke rooms costing 400 and 500 pesos for 2 hours, respectively. It was cozy inside although the songbook's pages were already disarranged, and some of the songs' tempo were not quite right.
How to get there:
    Club Fort Med is located in Boljoon, Cebu  and is just beside the road. The most practical way of going there that I can think of is to go to the South Bus Terminal and ride a bus heading to Southern Cebu and tell the conductor to drop you at the resort. It's a 3-hour ride and fare is 120 pesos for non-aircon buses and around P128 for the airconditioned ones. However, if you're in a big group, you can also opt to hire a van for a whole day (usually costing 3,000.00 pesos or more) to bring you there and to tour you to other nearby places as well such as the famous whale-shark watching in Oslob, and churches. You can also choose to chase waterfalls near the area.
