SunBloom Resort
Reviewed May 31, 2011

Went to this resort last May with my and my brother's family. I was choosing between this and another one beside it which has a pool.
We opted to stay here instead because of the proximity of the rooms to the pavilion that looks out to the sea where Potipot Island lies.
Reception was fast. We were checked in early because we almost had the resort to ourselves. There was no food at their resto when we came in so we ate lunch at the nearby resort.
When we came back from the island later, the dinner that we pre-ordered with them was such a feast! The servings were big and the taste was delightful. We learned later that it was the good owner who supervised the cooking herself.
We were not able to eat everything because of the large portions so we requested that some of it be heated the next morning for our breakfast. This would be on top of a few breakfast items that we ordered for the next day.
The rooms including the comfort rooms were small but they were clean and functional. The airconditioning ran well so we had no complaints.
We returned to Potipot the next day after an early breakfast before checking out for our trip back.
Overall, our stay in this resort was comfortable and relaxing. Again, this could be because it was a weekday when we checked-in and there was just one other group with us in the resort and nobody took the karaoke for a 'spin'. A full-house could be another matter altogether.

Sunbloom Resort in Uacon, Candelaria, Zambales is 5 hours away from Manila.

A 50% deposit is required and the full amount is to paid upon entry for room reservation. The whole reservation process went smoothly because they responded promptly. Kuya Allan, one of the staffs, was very helpful. Likewise, the other staffs were also friendly and easy to deal with. Sunbloom Resort is just a few minutes away from Potipot Island, which is very convenient for Potipot visitors.
For those who want to enjoy a bonfire at night, tell the resort staffs right away so they can prepare the woods ahead of time.
There are more beach resorts around Sunbloom--Dawal being the most popular. However, if you want total relaxation by the beach, Sunbloom is the perfect fit. The area around Sunbloom is so quiet at night, unlike the other resorts that have bars, pools, etc, amenities which don't really mean relaxation by the beach, if you know what I mean.
But, expect no restaurant service here in Sunbloom, but they are working on that. The nearest market is 8mins away. You can rent a tricycle on the highway to take you to and fro the market.

The room is spacious and clean.
