Rock View Resort is within Brgy Patar. It has different types of accomodations like kubo cottage for 2 to 4pax, w/ or w/o cr, A/C rooms for 2-4pax. The room we got is the A/C room w/ cr, with a king bed for P2,000. We just asked for additional foam mattress and blanket free of charge. Aircon is new and very cold. CR is clean and has strong water pressure.
Resort is very clean and well maintained. There is a small store near the resort entrance (Alma's Store), you can buy bread, softdrinks there if gusto niyo mag merienda. Peaceful surroundings. It also has an amazing view of the rock formations on the beach front. Sobrang ok dito mag-pictorial if gusto niyo mag emote-emote haha. Very picturesque. The owners are very nice and puwedeng sila ang magprepare ng dinner nyo. May charge lang for the pamalengke and pagluluto. May provided sila na Distilled water, nagpapahiram rin sila ng cups, plates, etc.
A great option for those who are looking for place to stay in Bolinao. Recommended!
**don't have their contact number though, but if you'll get "Kuya Julius" as your guide puwede niyo sabihin sa kanya na gusto nyo sa Rock View mag-stay. kakilala niya yung may-ari/caretaker kasi ^__^ **
CITY HOTEL - ALAMINOS
City hotel is 10-15 mins trike ride from the Victory Liner terminal in Alaminos. They have basic rooms that can service 2-4pax per room. We got their family room good for 4pax and got it for P1,600. One double bed and 1 double deck bed. CR is not as clean as we would have liked pero ok naman siya. Water pressure is enough, there's a small CRT TV, aircon is cold, and mababait ang staffs. Toiletries and towels were provided. If you're arriving at dawn, advise them para mahintay nila kayo. They also have a bar that mostly caters to foreigners. And its also near CSI (terminal ng mini-bus to bolinao).
Verdict: Good enough for the price.

KUYA JULIUS LAZO
Learned of Kuya Julius via blogs. He gave us a rate of P1,200 inclusive of the tour and hatid/sundo sa terminal ng bus. Halos parepareho lang naman ang rates ng ibang trike guides pero siya yung pinakamasipag sumagot sa queries ko regarding the tour kaya siya na ang kinuha namin. He also suggests resorts & places na ok puntahan na di ka matataga sa presyo. Maayos siya magmaneho and feeling safe kami kahit puro kami babae sa group. Won't hesitate on getting his services again.
Verdict: GOOD SERVICE!
