“Romantic Getaway”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Casa Consuelo is a diamond in a rough. They have excellent service and personalized tours and packages to meet your needs. The place is tucked away for a nice relaxing getaway. Richard, the property manager and owner took care of us and when he was away for awhile he made sure someone was there to look after us. Whatever we needed they made it possible. A romantic dinner setup on Valentine's Day by the beach capped our last night in Casa Consuelo. Richard and his staff made it possible to have a bonfire by the beach while gazing at Pagudpud's amazing starry night. Overall this trip was well worth it. I highly recommend this hidden cove if you want a relaxing weekend.

Thank you Richard and your Mom for looking after us.... JEN

Casa Consuelo offers great rooms and a wonderful view of Dos Hermanos islands. The place is very clean and has a delightful ambiance. The beachfront is a bit rocky but offers snorkeling opportunities in the summer. We went during the amihan season (northeast winds) which makes for powerful waves compared to that in Saud.

In addition to the good ambiance of the resort, Chad (the manager) and the staff made our stay great by providing excellent service! They even offered us a free guided tour of Dos Hermanos islands and the hill near the resort which has nice views of Blue Lagoon (Maira Ira Cove) and Dos Hermanos itself.

I would definitely recommend Casa Consuelo when you want to stay at Blue Lagoon.

Casa Consuelo is a gem in the clutter of resorts in Pagudpud, especially in the Blue Lagoon area. Though its beachfront is a bit rocky and the strong winds make it quite impossible to swim, the charm of the place is its homey ambiance - its owners and staff really make sure that guests are taken cared of. Its restaurant serves Ilocano dishes, home-cooked to goodness. Rooms are tastefully decorated, with a touch of Filipino elements.

Dos Hermanos island is just in front of Casa Consuelo - you can walk to it if it's low tide. You'll see the meeting of two waves - such an amazing sight! The owner was also kind enough to accompany us to a trek to the hill behind Casa Consuelo, which overlooks the Blue Lagoon.

You can savor peace and privacy since it is located at the end of the road, past the tacky mega-complex of Hannah's. We didn't regret driving that far just to experience Casa Consuelo!

Bring a jacket, it can get really cold!

Room Tip: There are only 5 rooms available, so better book early! Contact the owners through Facebook.

I'm glad that we discovered this resort.

As a photographer, the location is very strategic for photography purposes. The view here is spectacular. It's a 5 min walk from the famous "Blue Lagoon" beach just incase you would like to enjoy swimming.

The owner/manager Richard is very nice. Very hands on to customer and will grant any customer's request if feasible.

The rooms we had is quite small, but clean and comfortable.

Their food is ok, nothing fancy but is good enough to enjoy. The crew is ok. What prevented me from giving this resort a higher score was, the room we had don't have private comfort room, we have to use the common CR. But don't worry, other rooms have their own CR.

Will I recommend it? Definitely! I prefer this place compare to other established resorts nearby.


I'll be back for sure!

Room Tip: The fan room is one of the best rooms they have. It's cool enough for comfortable sleep and situ...

Writing this review while waiting for dinner to be served. Well,this is my second time staying here and will do again for the next time I visit pagudpud. The rooms are tastefully decorated and the owner, Richard personally attended to us himself. Though a little far from town, the place is secluded and great for anyone who needs some break from the city life. Totally would recommend this place to anyone and kudos to Casa Consuelo for an enjoyable stay.

The place is quite simple and clean... the owners are very hospitable... the food was delicious, it was "lutong bahay"... the area is kind of secluded w/c is great because its peaceful and serene and it gives you this relaxing feeling! I was lucky enough to be given a private tour of Miraira by the owner himself... and i have to say that the view from the top was indeed breathtaking...if you're into places that are less crowded and has a beautiful scenery you should definitely try Casa Consuelo!...
