In my last visit to this island paradise, I said I would recomend tis resort to friends and relatives. The opportunity arose to celebrate a special occasion so I brought this July the whole family and relatives to Blue Cove, comprising of 12 adults and a 3 year old grand daughter. For 9 family members, this is their first visit to this resort and they love it.
On the day we arrived a Belgian couple, Peter with their 12 year old son were checking out. This was their second return visit to Blue Cove so we were fortunate to have the resort all to ourselves so we occupied seven cottages including the much requested honeymoon cottage by the sea.
By the way seeing the family members enjoy themselves so much by hiking, boat paddling, fishing and snorkeling this resort would be an ideal venue for family affairs such as island wedding or birthday celebrations including one-of-a kind corporate meetings or weekend company team building activities inspite of the long land travel and boat ride from San Vicente. The road leading to Port Barton is close for repairs and one has to travel to San Vicente which is an addition of one hour land travel. The good news for Sunday church goers, there is a Catholic priest now assigned to Port Barton and mass start at 4 PM in the afternoon.
Services have definitely improved and more consistent. This early they have started to hire and train new staff in anticipation of the arrival of new and returning guest for the high season starting October. I am told that the fish cage project which is an offshore attraction will be finished by then.
I would like to thank Sam one of the Blue Cove owners, Joseph a former manager and Angel the current resort manager and the staff for making our family celebration and vacation very memorable. Guys keep up the good work.
We did something new during this visit: island hopping. We visited a nice resort Coconut Garden Resort, a 20 minute boat ride from Blue Cove.
