Sarangani Beach Resort Series: DOT-accredited Isla Jardin del Mar

Summer 2015 is almost here and we are giving you another instalment in our Sarangani Beach Resort Series.

This time, we are featuring the best and only beach resort in Sarangani Province that has passed the standards of the Department of TourismIsla Jardin del Mar.

Isla Jardin Del Mar Resort Beach

Isla Jardin del Mar which opened on January 2010 is just a 4.5 kilometer ride away from Gumasa, Glan, Sarangani where most of the activities of the annual SarBay Fest are held.  The best way to reach it in Sitio Manando, Gumasa is via four-wheeled vehicles or the local transportation mode called habal-habal.  The provincial government built an access road to it from the National Highway.   See map below.

Just last year though, another access but shorter road was built that will lead to the nearby Sarangani Coves Reyes Beach in Gumasa in a matter of minutes. That makes staying here even better now since it will be easily accessible from the SarBay Festival grounds at the Adarna Family resorts.

Isla Jardin del Mar‘s white sand beach does not have the same texture as that of the beach along Gumasa but the water is still immaculately blue and still safe and fun for wading for kids and swimming plus snorkeling for older people.  (Better wear beach shoes just in case there are sea urchins.)

What makes it superior than the resorts along the Gumasa area is the more number of accommodations that it has.  You can choose from a variety of rooms – the newer air-conditioned suite rooms, De Luxe Rooms (duplex and single native bamboo cottages on stilts) that are either air-conditioned or fan-cooled, or open-type cottages.  Check below for the rates.

Other than these is its fully-functioning restaurant that serves various meals any time during the day and earlier at night (it closes at 10pm). There is also a Pavilion for larger gatherings and sports amenities like  beach volleyball courts, snorkeling and diving equipment among others.  And after personally staying here just recently, I would say that the service here is excellent, the staff are accommodating and are pleasant and eager to serve you.  The owners have been operating a hotel in Gensan for decades (Sydney Hotel) and thus, you would know what to expect plus more.

Isla Jardin del mar ratesEntrance rate for adults (13 years old above) is only P50 and P30 for kids and senior citizens.  These rates are separate from the room rates.

Check-in time is 2pm while the check-out time is 12 noon. Major credit cards are honored and accepted.
