The long entrance from the guardhouse
And here's the driveway entrance to the lobby
Here's the reception area
Here's the dome ceiling of the lobby. So Greek, right?
And here's the lobby per se. Very simple with a few couches. Nothing too extravagant....
But the view of the beach is breath-taking!
Once you come out of the lobby, there's a pretty open space for a viewing deck, with a restaurant on the right, and another snack area on the left.
And here's the view once you take a peek by the balcony area. Their gorgeous pool! You can come here and have a dip at the pool even if you're not checked in, but there's an entrance fee and it's quite expensive for me. I guess the maintenance is really expensive:
Adults - P1,200 (700 food and drinks consumable + 500 pool entrance
Kids 5-12 years old - P700 (350 for food and drinks consumable + 350 pool entrance.
The beach on the other hand is restricted to hotel residents and members only, but I was able to take a photo. Lots of sea weeds and looks like there are some corals as well, but otherwise, beautiful!
By the right side, a little play area for the kids and what looks like an obstacle course.
Then look further ahead, and you'll see the sea!
Zooming in, you'll see there are what looks like viewing sheds.
Going back to the viewing deck, on the right side is their restaurant. Sorry I didn't get to see the menu. Ooops! Hehehe.
Here's their alfresco dining area where you an have a nice view of the beach
Walk further to the right and there's a green hill with this beautiful view. Walk further up and you will see Love!
Seriously. LOVE! :-)
And beside the LOVE, is a romantic gazeeboo with sheer curtains. A nice place to propose! (Or to get relaxing massage maybe?)
Going back to the hotel and accommodations, looks like these are the hotel rooms that you can rent per night.
Now I'm not really sure which of these pretty houses around the land of Thunderbird Resort can be rented or or which are residential houses. Either way, they're all nice, all following the white and blue Santorini Greece color scheme.
And just in case you were wondering, the casino is a golf car / service ride away from Thunderbird's main lobby.
Instead of entering Thunderbird gate, you go all the way straight until you see this gate.
And voila! Welcome to Fiesta Casino!
There are still lots of empty lots there in Thunderbird and I can't wait to see what else they're going to put up. Even if we just went around the place, I had a great time bonding with my Tita Eva who was in town for vacation from New Jersey. She tries to come home every 2 years and so I was happy that we were able to visit her and my grandmother as well in La Union with the little Rainbow :-)
