La Villa Francisco Mountain Resort a Relaxation Haven in the City

La Villa Francisco Mountain Resort a stunning mountain resort located in Tacloban City, the economic center and heart of Eastern Visayas, Philippines. It is a great place to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life and relax while embracing the natural beauty of nature, greenery surroundings, dipping in cool water, and breathing in some fresh air. Have fun and enjoy yourself with your friends and family while using their man-made amenities for FREE. 

What to Do in La Villa Francisco Mountain Resort

This 9.5-hectare mountain resort comes with beautiful amenities where guests can use for FREE and outdoor activities you may experience. Amenities include adult swimming pool with pool bar and giant slide, Children’s Water Park with slides, and water fountain. Kids playhouse, swing, seesaw, a short hanging bridge is also there for kids to use. Proper swimming attire is strictly required for those who want to use the swimming pool. Didn’t you bring one? Worry no more, because they are selling swimwear for all ages. Safe and clean changing rooms, comfort rooms. indoor and outdoor shower are also present in the area

A water watcher is present supervises the safety of swimmers, but because of numbers using the pool, it is much better to keep an eye on your own kids.

The Children’s Water Park includes waterfalls, waterwheels and mini slides. What I love in this area is the fantastic big tipping bucket on top that sends liters of water pouring down. It’s not only the kids but parents as well can have fun here with their little ones or relax in the sunbeds that are present around the pool while watching their kids having fun in the water.

Experience a round of carriage/pony and kalesa riding. In that one “lap” of a ride, a resort assistant will guide to ensure your safety. Horseback riding is also one of the mountain resort’s guests can do. Same with the carriage and kalesa, resort personnel is there to guide you along with the one lap of horseback riding, so no need to worry even if it is your first time. A zip line and wall climbing amenities will soon rise in the resort.

There are eye-relaxing scenery and lots of instagramable spots for you to take selfie and photoshoots for whatever occasions.

    The mountain resort looks fabulous for a good few days with family. The amenities that I would love to explore would be horse riding and lots of time in the water. The cottage options are really varied and seems to suit every budget which is a great idea.

    The resort is interesting! You stated a lot of activities that can be done. Sayang it is quarantine kasi so it is impossible for me to visit it in person but the way you made this blog post and gave information about it made me have a glimpse of how staying there would feel like.

  10. Ma. Theresa Martinez says:

    Wow. The place and the activities there are nice but is it open now? My MIL is in Tacloban right now because she went there before quarantine happened. I will show this to her so their family would know about this.
