Policios Waterpark Resort is a quaint property that is tucked in Barangay Sangi, Asturias, Cebu Province. Asturias is located south of Cebu City and takes around three hours travel by bus. Asturias is also known for its human-made and natural travel destinations, especially among nature lovers.
Policios Resort is not a beach resort but a property on land but offers cool swimming pools for your enjoyment. You can stay overnight or for an extended period as they provide comfortable traditional cottages. However, it is also located close to the sea.
The surrounding and environment of Policios are excellent for families, friends, colleagues’ relaxation abode. In addition, the resort can also accommodate social events such as wedding or birthday celebrations among other functions.
The whole resort is well-decorated with endemic plants – flowering plants, non-flowering plants, some trees, coconut trees – that are growing at their specific places to create harmony with their locations.
These cottages are only available for day-users – those who come in the morning, have fun, and then leave in the afternoon. The size is just enough for a small family or few good friends to fit in. However, since the area is quite spacious, you would not feel the small size cottage as the whole area is an extension of your rented facility.
Policios Resort has two swimming pools – one for adults and another for children. There is also a jacuzzi park where you can sit around and enjoy chatting over the bubbling water. Just like most people do, especially in tropical countries, I too love being in the water for long and could stay all day in it until my lips turn blue (most kids do ).
Chairs and Tables
Around the pools area, you can use the chairs and tables while relaxing or drinking and eating your supply. You can also use the parasols available surrounding the pools to protect you from too much sunlight. It is advisable to use sun-cream and other protective products to reduce your risks of absorbing ultraviolet rays to your skin or eyes!
Corner Benches and Tables
Surrounding the pools or nearby, you will find small wooden and bamboo seats (or benches) spread around the gardens. This scene offers you a more candid or romantic and also relaxing corner in the resort. The garden is all over the resort, and this is what the place is supposed to look like.
There are Fan Rooms (4 of them at this stage). They are located wherein you will have a great view over the resort area and the sea in the distance. Fan rooms can accommodate 2 to 6 guests.
These rooms are nicely built in the hilly part of the resort. There are four of them – they are not at the same level. Yes, you can turn on the air-con during a hot day, but it could be fresh or cool during night time. Air-conditioned rooms can accommodate up to 10 guests.
No Corkage Fees for any food and drinks that you will bring in with you. If you stay overnight, the owner will be so kind to offer their refrigerator and freezer to keep your food from getting wasted.
