Living in the city is quite exhausting at times. The traffic in Manila is tiring, the pollution amplifies the stress and even meeting deadlines can really drive us crazy. Wait! Pause for a while. Breathe and relax. Maybe it’s time for you to have a break. Go on and take a rest because you deserve it. Looking for a staycation near Manila? Well I have the right place for you.
A Beautiful Paradise at the Heart of Bulacan
This is El Masfino Hotel and Resort, a four-star luxury hotel situated at the heart of Bulacan. It is located inside Royal Northwoods Golf and Country Club in Coral na Bato, San Rafael. Driving an hour or two from Manila can get you in this fantastic wonderland. I think this is the perfect place for a staycation ideal for bonding with friends and family away from the hustle of the metro.
A week ago, together with the other bloggers, we were invited to visit this amazing place and had a blissful experience up north.
This is a 3-part review of El Masfino Hotel and Resort. It will showcase the best attractions of this place, the costs and our experience. Read along and feel as if you’re part of this memorable staycation.

Upon entering the resort, we were greeted with this grandiose pavilion. The staffs here are congenial and they all welcomed us with a warm smile. From here we started checking in to our hotel room and prepared ourselves for the tour around the place.
Our Hotel Room
As we enter our deluxe hotel room, I was amazed on how spacious and cozy it is. Normally, this room can accommodate up to 2 persons. Since we were triple-sharing, an extra bed was provided. The extra bed was small yet comfortable. Even with the additional bed, there’s still plenty of room for other things.
The design is both contemporary and Mediterranean-inspired embellished with warm lighting which amplifies its look and comfort. Our room was located at the ground floor of the hotel and its gigantic window offers a scenic view of the swimming pool with mixed foliage. There’s also a flat-screen television on the wall connected to a cable system which provides entertainment to its guests. A minibar can also be found inside the room offering different kinds of refreshments. The wash room on the other hand has hot/cold shower which I think is important.
The Suite Room
If you want to upgrade your overall experience, a luxurious suite room is available for you. Their suite rooms are located on the 3rd floor of the hotel. It has a living room, dining area, kitchenette, master bedroom and a comfort room.
Aside from its elegant design and generous size, there is also a balcony in this room which provides the stunning panorama of El Masfino Hotel and Resort.
