And who can forget about these photos?
Most hotel accommodations im Roxas City are downtown, around the church/market, and in Pueblo de Panay which is a city-within-a-city development while San Antonio Resort is along the Baybay Area which is the coastal area of Roxas. This makes it a little off if you are thinking of downtown lifestyle but this gives the resort an advantage on the quality of location because it is in the quieter and less crowded side of town. The sprawling resort premise is one example. The rooms are scattered in a countryside setup and the view from the pool is one example of the importance of space. Plus you get to retreat by the seaside where lots of seafood restaurants are located. The city's beach is located here and although it is not very suitable for swimming because of the big waves and trash, it still gives a good ambiance in contrast to the city center's orientation. Should you need something downtown, it's only a few minutes commute.
San Antonio Resort has 50 rooms and suites: consisting of 17 deluxe rooms, 6 family rooms, 9 suites, 12 econo rooms, 2 family room - A, 2 family room - B and 2 family suites arranged in clusters around the expansive landscaped gardens with the tranquil view of the lagoon or the refreshing outdoor pool. Designer furniture with their distinct clean lines make the rooms spacious and cozy for a relaxing stay.
Rates range from 1,300php for budget rooms to 5,500php for a family room. The Lagoon Suite where we stayed could be booked for 2,840 php overnight
At first, I was told to check in at a budget room. I was surprised because I was expecting a better space. Found out later that they were preparing the room so I was given a temporary room. Nice to know though that they have budget rooms in the resort for those who are budget conscious especially for large groups. I was then transferred to a Lagoon Suite which is setup you will not easily find in a city hotel. The fact that Roxas City has a resort is in itself a pleasant surprise. The Lagoon Suite is very spacious and the view of course is one that will surely delight you. Imagine waking up to this. Joy!
Shame because I dreamed of swimming at the resort's pool and just enjoy the view. I only achieved the latter.

I was actually given the option to choose between Urban Manor Hotel or San Antonio Resort but no contest, I instantly chose the latter. I am not saying Urban Manor is not good. I saw their rooms and the place is quite classy but I wanted a place with a resort feel and I easily achieved that at San Antonio Resort. Make sure you check it out when you visit Roxas City.
