|El Pescador Hotel and Resort|
|The resort's swimming pools|
After our visit to the town's Church of St. James the Great, we again boarded our van for the short drive to Bolinao Marine Laboratory. Along the way we made a brief stopover at the El Pescador Hotel and Resort, strategically located just 1 km. from Bolinao town proper. Built in 1992 by former town mayor Jesus Celeste, this resort, one of the best in town, has spacious airconditioned one, two and three-bedroom villas with bath, local channel TV and private balcony (PhP1,500-3,000).
The resort also has two huge outdoor swimming pools, kiosks (PhP1,000) and conference facilities and offers boat rental and beach volleyball. Because of its modern amenities, the resort has become a popular venue for fishing tournaments, sunset weddings, family outings, seminars as well as corporate retreats. In front of the resort is a beige sand beach. Spectacular sunsets can be enjoyed while dining or sipping a cold drink at its native-style restaurant.
