Familiar with box office hit “No Other Woman” the resort depicted in the movie owned by Ann Curtis? That is Thunderbird Resort at Poro Point, San Fernando City, La Union. Going to La Union is a five long-hour drive from Manila or from Bataan (thru SCTEX) where I live but worth the travel. The Santorini inspired architecture of pure white wall with prominent blue dome will greet you as you enter the resort. The staff is great as they will serve you a welcome drink as you checked-in. The room may be a bit costly but you surely love it as it is complimented with small kitchenette with microwave oven, a bathroom with Jacuzzi and most importantly, a free wifi access yehey! The food is absolutely perfect, especially the complimentary breakfast. I managed to return to the buffet table two times! Hahaha. Aside from using their pool and beach, you can also try to bike around you just have to ask the guard at the front desk, its free then you can also use their golf cart to roam around but to certain area only, well the good thing is,.. again free. When you bike, you can get outside the resort premises and you may opt to go to nearby casino so you can see the whole area 360°. Then you can dine-in outside the resort, you may choose to go to ROSEBOWL Steakhouse and Chinese restaurant, believe me its very affordable (they have some sort of value meal) with big serving good to make you full and the taste! Wooow! Tried their patatim! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Then after you checked out to Thunderbird Resort, you should go to Baguio City since it is only less than an hour drive thru Naguilian Road this makes your trip worth the travel. After sun bathing you should try to cool down at Baguio City..haaaay
