Summer is not yet over.  But I already had so much fun😀 The coolest happening was when I went with hubby’s family to a resort in New Washington, Aklan.  The resort is named after a popular character in one of Mexican telenovela aired some time ago starring Marimar.  I’m referring to the beautiful Maria Mercedes Beach Resort.

Here are some photos that will give you a sneak peak of what’s inside the resort.  Come with me and let’s stroll around.

On your way to New Washington, Aklan…

Maria Mercedes Beach Resort

you will see this breathtaking view of a vast ocean with its sparkling waters.

When you reach the resort, you will see this welcome sign.  Personally, I feel that it needs more emphasis.  It must be given more attention so it can attract more visitors.  Near the parking lot is surely something underrated.

This is what you will see beside the Registration Area.

There are various ways through which you can enter the pool area.  But the photo above is my favorite.  The arch is very well accentuated with the polka dots inspired pathwalk.

This is a view from the inside.  This is in front of the kiddie pool.

This one is at the very center of the whole pool area.  It is the stairs going to the slide for the adult pool.

The photos show the big stairs going to the adult pool slide and the smaller one going to the kiddie pool slide.

Now let’s go to the adult pool area…

Although the water looks green (not sure if it’s due to the depth or something else) but just look at the super fun slide!!!  Tempting…

Adjacent to the adult pool area is this cute bridge…almost like a landscaping bridge…that gives you access to one of the cottages in the resort.

At the opposite side is a store (baraka in Akeanon) with this cute landscaping.  You’ll have to see how the trees grow…they look like living umbrellas!

And at the back side is the mangrove section.
