Villa de Mercedes Resort - Catigan, Toril Davao City

White sand beaches and resorts in Philippines are usually a busy places during summer. Enjoying summer is fun. Playing with waves and cool water really feels great and refreshing. I been through with many resorts and lately I have visted this high class resort which I instantly listed as my another favorite Davao tourist spots and highly recommended resort for you this summer.

We actually intended to go for a house tripping at Villa de Mercedes located at Toril, Davao City. And as we go around the subdivision, one of the housing agent told us to check out the swimming pool. As we reached the place, it really captivated our mind because of the beauty and modern trend of the swimming pool. Indeed a breath taking place. Actually I though that it is considered as a private resort for Villa de Mercedes subdivision only but surprisingly they allow outsiders to enjoy the resort for a low price.

Let me first describe the pool. Villa de Mercedes swimming pool has a great and super high class designs - a modern one. It is an infinity pool and the beach kilometers away looks like just connected with the pool as you take a look from the pool's sand. The swimming pool's depth is only 5 feet. Diving is not allowed but I assure you, you would still enjoy the place. There is also a kid's pool.

The swimming pool is designed to be a beach like with white sand and shore. You can play volleyball behind the benches near the pool and still it's a white sand. You can do sun bathing using the benches on the side. For food, there is a restaurant near the entrance gate. They serve different delicious meals, pastries, snacks and ice cream. Bringing of foods inside the pool area is not allowed however there's a walking distance cottages outside for free and you can leave your food there and lock the cottage when going back to the pool.

You can stay overnight at the cottage if you wish but swimming pool is only open until 11:00PM. Villa de Mercedes swimming pool has a breath taking view during day time and captivating view when night comes. Different lights are all over the place and underwater lights changed to different colors which adds dramatic view to the place.

I'm sure you will also gonna love this one. Now if you want to enjoy this resort, getting there is very easy. First you need to be in Davao City and then make a reservation to the resort. You can only enter the subdivision if you have access inside or with any Villa de Mercedes agency. You can ride with them if your reservation will be granted and if you have a vehicle, just take the road going to Sta. Cruz. Before reaching Sirawan, you can see a signage pointing you to Villa de Mercedes direction. Just follow the road and give the agency name to the guard on duty on the Villa de Mercedes entrance gate. Guard will check if you really have made a reservation on that day. Swimming pool entrance fee is only PHP150.00 during weekdays and PHP200.00 every weekends and cottage is free. They are very strict with swimming wear. Only silk swim wear are allowed.

Important: Hire a taxi driver to pick you up when you leave at night. Vehicle are hard to catch up when going back.

Saturday and Sunday - Entrance fee (Day and Night Tour) Php200.00

    Yes, you can bring food and drinks, they don't charged for corkage but you cannot bring the foods on the pool area. You can just leave it on the cottage and locked it when you go to the pool, agents will let you borrow keys.

    No overnight rate. You will only have to pay PHP100.00 for the pool.

    ReplyDelete
  19. 100 lng yung entrance fee ng swimming pool. Wala nang other fee na babayaran.

    Hindi ko po alam kung okay lng ba sa kanila if you stay for 6 days. Hindi kasi xa maconsider na open for public talaga na resort.

    And yes, you can kailangan mgpareserve muna sa agency bago pumunta dun. Hindi ka papasukin ng guard if walang nakalagay na schedule para sa inyo.

    Contact nyo na lng po yung number ng agency. Nasa post po. Thanks! :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. I am sorry for not keeping in touch with you guys. Been very busy this past few months. To all who asked about the contact number. The one I provided were just a real estate agency in villa de mercedes. They are not really the caretaker of the pool.

    You can try this number: 09178051460 Leo Moreno

    The van they offer is for viewing purposes on houses there and I am not sure if they'll allow you to rent that. Good advice is to rent a van on a real car rental services.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Opps, I forgot to mention about the food price range. It's a way to expensive when you buy on the cafeteria. Package meal cost around 180.00, ice cream 60.00 per cup. We didn't order much when we got there, we brought are own foods. :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. hi there!, u didnt mention about the exact fee for the entrance, overnight stay, cottages and etc.. kindly tell poh lahat ng pwd mbyaran aside from foods. Were planning to come by april 1 poh sana..pls send me rply here or through email ABMamugay@gmail.com. Thank You!

    ReplyDelete
  50. im confused with the swimming pool with php100 entrnce fee yet, the post above says we need to budget php500-1000 per person..wat does it mean po?

    or is it that, aside from that php100 entrnce fee, there wer still other fees inside or wat?

    ReplyDelete
  51. Hi Ailya, if you read the above post, you'll find that I stated the swimming pool entrance fee which is only PHP100.00 and cottage is free.

    The amount you saw listed under the budget which is 500-1000 is a tentative budget when you go there. Inclusive of entrance fee, fare, and food if you will order from their cafeteria.

    There's no other fee inside, only 100 entrance fee with free cottage, bring your own food as their resto is a bit expensive. Thanks for visiting this travel blog and have fun in Villa de Mercedes. :)

  56. @Badjie: Yup, I can recommend Villa de Mercedes. It's a nice place with modern design.

    There's no corkage for food. Just leave the foods on the cottage as food are not allowed inside the pool area.

    And yes, you can have a program or event there. We once held our Christmas party there last year. Just contact them for reservation. :)
