One Summer Day at Club Manila East

Club Manila East - Taytay, Rizal Resort

April 25, 2010 – The very first time we visited Club Manila East in Taytay Rizal. To get there, we took an FX ride (en route to SM Megamall) to Robinson’s Galleria. From Galle we rode a Taytay Rizal bus and got off in front of the entrance gate. At the entrance were several jeepneys waiting to take guests to the main CME resort.

We checked in at around 4pm and met with two of Ray’s colleagues with their families. The villas for overnight guests were decent and homey. Ours was painted in blue and pink. There were two beds and a cozy sofa, dining area & kitchen at one corner, television, dresser, closet, and a bathroom with a bathtub.

The Club Manila East resort in Taytay Rizal is quite big and the place was brimming with guests. They have facilities for team building activities like wall climbing and obstacle courses, variety of accommodations for guests such as pavilions, huts, cabins, cabanas, picnic area, and villas, and exciting pools for everyone. Bringing food inside the resort is prohibited so you really need to bring extra cash. Anyway there are food stalls around like Jollibee, Shakey’s, and Chowking. And if ever you forgot your swim essentials at home, a store near the entrance is jam-packed with swim apparels and inflatables for kids.

I’m quite impressed that the place was maintained well throughout the years. Trash bins were all around, pools were clean, and it seemed that the resort defied “ageing”. I enjoyed kayaking, fighting giant waves, and eating halo-halo after hours of soaking in the water. But the best of all is the waterfalls located at the adult pool. I stayed under it for a few minutes of heavenly shoulder and back massage.

So, if ever you consider spending a day of your summer at CME, the entrance fee is Php 350.00 per person, and children below 3 feet are FREE!

    Looks like fun. I can’t wait for summer. The lazy river reminds me of a place called Water World here in Colorado.

    Worst experience. Someone broke inside our room while me and my family were swimming. Before leaving the room, we made sure that the doors were locked, both from the ajoining door connecting the other room and the main door. When we went back, my camera bag including lenses are missing including my wife’s iPhone. We were only thankful that only these things were taken, but what if my kids are inside the room and someone broke in. Who knows what might happen.

    I wouldn’t recommend Club Manila East, especially if you have with you your cameras or some gadgets. Security in the area is very poor. The only security we saw is in the main entrance. In the area where overnight accommodation is, there are no security in sight. This happened June 18, 2011.

    after reading many blogs, both positive and negative. We decide to give it a try last feb7 (sat). the pools are really nice but you should really manage your time since the pool have schedules. just like the beach pool which some of us did not able to try since its already close, it is only open from 10am to 12pm. you should really try the beach wave pool since its wave is really nice, better than other resorts. meanwhile the ocean wave pool is open only from 2pm-4pm., which is somehow an ordinary wave pool. if you want to try the zipline. it is only open from 2pm-4pm but you should buy the tickets ahead since they usually limit. the kayak was really nice, especially if its your first time. they also have diving area where you can try if you have guts. and finally, the worst is, they dont allow foods at ALL even if they dont have food to offer inside the premises.
