Touched down Coco Beach last July 11 (2014) at around noon and we were greeted with fresh buko juice and shell leis for our necks. My sons automatically loved the place the moment we walked in.
Our room. It is so homey and cozy.

I and hubby would've chosen the bed in the main floor but the two boys didn't feel like sleeping in the attic bedroom. But we didn't sleep in yet.
After eating the pizza that we bought in Batangas Port (we didn't eat it before boarding since we're avoiding another throwing up scene that might happen in the boat or anytime then), we changed to our swimming attire and went to the main pool.
The kids immediately made new friends with three boys who are playing in the pool. Funny how Gabby say their names coz, well, that's how the boys say their own names and so that's how Gabby call them too- Oscah (Oscar), Bowdy (Bodie), who are brothers and Gregry (Gregory).
After trying out the main pool, we visited the Silent Pool. It's quite a hike up the hill but it's worth it. The jacuzzi was full when we came but we were content with the warm water gushing down from it. I wonder why they called it Silent Pool but when I saw the place, the name speaks for itself. It's so relaxing in here with the pool surrounded by lush trees, bushes and flowers. Don't worry if you get thirsty, there's a bar where you can order drinks from.
By the time, we went down from Silent Pool, it's low tide already. Aaahhhh :( Anyway, there's the hammock to relax.
The kids got hungry for swimming again at the main pool. We ordered bacon, lettuce 'n tomato sandwich and french fries.
4PM is Happy Hour at Coco Beach!
The kids tried the playground before heading up to our room to change for dinner.
Nice view of the sunset from our room
We rode the cable car on the way up to Coco Grill. Their cable car is a one of a kind jeepney being pulled up (and down) on a track to take you to destinations around in Coco Beach.

Hubby ordered Chicken Cashew Nuts while the two boys shared the order of Pork Char Sui. They loved the food. The pork was so tender and yummy and the chicken is so tasty as well. My first order was grilled crabs but it wasn't available so they offered me jumbo prawns instead. I enjoyed the meal, only to get surprised at the end of dinner when we got the bill. I thought it's the same price as the crab and didn't ask before ordering but I was wrong. Anyway, I enjoyed the meal, ATLIT!
After lounging a while in one of the hammocks,, my body is begging me to call it a day. I and the kids went up to our room while the daddy stayed in Carabao Resto where wifi is available.
This is what we saw when we opened our room. The bed was enticing us to lalaland. I slept together with the kids while waiting for hubby.
