Affordable Resorts Near Quezon City: List of Places to Beat the Heat 2

Here are possible inland resorts near Quezon City that you can visit for a swim. 

There's no doubt that it's summer. The heat is on and there's no escaping it unless you take a refreshing dip in cool waters. Here are possible nearby places that your family can visit. These places are just about two hours away from Quezon City Memorial Circle.


1. Grotto Vista Resort

This is San Jose del Monte's prime inland resort. It has about 5 (or more) big pools which makes it ideal if you're a big group. The pools are also creatively and uniquely designed so the place is an interesting place to visit. Grotto Vista also has private pools should you wish to have an exclusive outing. The resort doesn't have overnight swimming.

How to Get There:

  • Ride a bus or jeep bound for Tungko or Sapang Palay
  • Drop off at Jollibee Tungko (This is the town's center)
  • Ride a jeep going to Grotto Vista 


2. Tierra Fontana 12 Waves Resort

Tierra Fontana is relatively new compared to Grotto Vista. What's attractive with this place is their wave system. The place is quite spacious but there are some pungent odors since it's located inside Paradise Farm.

How to Get There:


  • Ride a bus or jeep bound for Sapang Palay
  • Drop off at Paradise Farm
  • From the farm's entrance, follow the short walk towards the resort


3. Pacific Waves

Pacific Waves is one of the newest resorts in San Jose Del Monte. Because of this, the place is clean and the facilities are in good condition. But compared to the first two resorts, Pacific Waves' grounds is not that spacious.


How to Get There:

  • Ride a bus or jeep bound for Sapang Palay
  • Drop off at Pacific Waves
4. Villa Celadonia

This is a small budget resort with about 3 large pools. If you're around Caloocan City, this resort would be okay for a simple dip. The resort is clean but you wouldn't enjoy the place if there are too many people. It would also be better if you have your own ride when you visit this place since its in the interior of the city.

Gubat sa Ciudad was once a well-known inland resort but due to negligence, some parts looks dingy and old. I wouldn't really recommend this place although this is more spacious than the nearby Villa Celadonia. 

Other well-known resorts are not included here for two reasons: 1.) I haven't been to those places yet and 2.) They're not near Quezon City and I don't really consider them affordable.

  7. Nakakapag sisi na nagswimming pa kami dito sa Tiera Fontana ( 12 waves) . Napakamisleading ng promo nila. They will give you a lot of discount cards pero pagdating mo dun, they will say na lugi naman sila if gagamitin mo lahat.

    Yung discount sa mga accomodations... may condition pala pero hindi nakalagay sa flyer. Dapat 10people pataas.

    -nakakasulasok ang amoy ng babuyan na katabi ng resort na to. at ang dumi ng tubig.
    -Totoo din na puro bangaw, na para bang nakatira ka sa mismong poulty at babuyan. Kung sanitary lang, di dapat nabibigyan ng permit ang resort nato.

  17. I say Pacific Waves is the best place to relax amomg all these resorts. Well maintained ang cleanliness though maliit ang area, good for photo ops din ang ambience.
