DJ Paradise Resort in Malolos, Bulacan is not as lavish as it name connotes, but for a budget resort, it ain’t too shabby either.
Amenities and the environs are generally well-maintained, and the variety of pools are enough to satisfy those who have a short attention span. There’s the usual lap and kiddie pools, and like most resorts in Bulacan, a wave pool that’s turned on sporadically.
No soul is too rowdy or rambunctious, which is good if you are after a quiet respite from the bustling Metro.We went on a weekend, and we were delighted to see that visitors were on the tame side. By that I mean average families with little jologs sightings.
The resort has two phases, Phase 1 and 2, each with its own attractions to boot . Back in 2006-ish, guests may transfer from one phase to the other to enjoy all the pools in each phase. Nowadays though, both phases can only be accessed on weekends and holidays (P250/head), as only a single phase may be used during weekdays (P200/ head).
While minimalist, the affordable bamboo huts provide ample space for those who come in large groups. Ready yourself with some sunblock though, as the huts aren’t that efficient in keeping you under the shade.
Visitors are also allowed to do their cooking inside the resort, and you will be greeted by the delightful smell of grilled loins everywhere you go.
DJ Paradise is no paradise, yes, but it is reminiscent of good times and happy memories. A neat getaway for friends and families, indeed.
