Anyway, we left Davao a little after 10 am. Took the barge to Samal and travelled more than 30 minutes of more than halfway of zigzag roads to reach Capt. Hook's Red Parrot Inn which was owned by Brock and Cleo Hook. My husband actually compared our short trip to the last one we had at Caraga, Davao Oriental.
Honestly, I wasn't really expecting anything impressive of Capt. Hook's Red Parrot Inn. Quite frankly, the pictures that we saw posted on the internet wasn't really that appealing. At the back of my mind, our Sunday will be spent ordinarily . Much to my surprise, I find the area serene and cozy, just like a typical rest house where you want to enjoy alone time and/or bond with your family.
So, here are a couple of photos I took of the 3 bedroom building of Capt. Hook's Red Parrot Inn which costs at Php 5,500 a night. Like most hotels, check out time is at 12:00 noon. Sorry if the photos I took isn't as good as professional photographers. I'm just an amateur but I hope I'll be able to show you photos of how nice this inn is.
This was what greeted us when we reached our destination.
Entrance was supposed to be at the other door but apparently, the inn was occupied so we had to use this gate here.
The island you see is Talikud. Somewhere in that strip is the famous Isla Reta.
To be honest, this is the first resort I went to that posted a warning at the gate before you proceed to the beach and I highly appreciate their safety precautions for their guest.
The tempting beach.
Their mini bar and store. Although a little expensive, the customer service is superb and they have free purified water for their guests.
The birds that greeted us with their whistles.
The open shower located before the entrance of the inn.
Before you reach the 2nd floor, Capt. Hook's Red Parrot Inn made sure to provide their guests with a fire exit. I'm sure this will be highly appreciated by the guests who are going to check in. Oh by the way, other than the fire exit, they had also provided fire extinguishers in different areas of the inn just in case of fire.
The 3 bedrooms is located at the 2nd floor. The masters bedroom door is at the left side (not shown in the photos).
The master's bedroom with 1 restroom looks this nice.
The inn's living room and kitchen.
A relaxing Sunday wouldn't be complete without fun companions and, of course, food! Thank you sponsors! By the way, my sister-in-law is the one in black and white stripes. Beside her is her husband.
The other cottages that are for rent are located at another area. Other cottages available ranges from Php 1,200 to Php 2,000.
Currently, we're still here at Capt. Hook's Red Parrot Inn. I'm pretty much enjoying the free wifi here which is ultra fast but you have to request for access before you can start browsing.
I'm honestly looking forward to coming back here on December. As early as now, my sister-in-law has reserved the 3 bedroom inn we're staying now.
