BLUEWATER MARIBAGO BEACH RESORT is well known for its safety standard, especially during the COVID19 pandemic. It’s recognized by the Department of Tourism and Department of health and safety protocol by implementing BlueCARES and using Staysafe.PH for contact tracing. Guests are assured that they will enjoy a safe stay at Bluewater.

BLUEWATER MARIBAGO BEACH RESORT was first to open in 1989 by the owners who wanted to have a place to relax and unwind. It was then that their friends asked if they could visit the beach as well. The owners then decided to open a resort on their beach and allow visitors to enjoy the beach. Since then, the resort has been trendy to the locals and international visitors, and ex-pats.

Lapu-Lapu is a Filipino hero who defended the Philippines against the first foreigner invader “Ferdinand Magellan”. BLUEWATER RESORT is also famous for its logo, which depicts (7) dolphins. This came from the famous legend that Lapu-Lapu helped save 7 dolphins who swarmed up the beach. They eventually became his pets in which these dolphins would often swim onto the shore to play with Lapu-Lapu.

The resort has three huge swimming pools, and each of these pools is child-friendly. It’s the perfect getaway for primarily friends and families. The swimming pool opens up around 9AM and closes at 8PM. Two of these pools are surrounded by huge comfortable buildings with a contemporary Filipino Nepa hut style on the roofings. The other swimming pool is located next to the restaurant “Delfino” and Älegra” Delfino is an Italian restaurant which serves Italian food including pasta and pizza. Alegra serves mostly Asian and famous Filipino cuisines. Unlike most hotels and resorts, these restaurants at the BLUEWATER MARIBAGO BEACH RESORT are 24/7 open. Food is sent to the guest room or even onto the beach.

The resort is also home to the most enormous tree in Mactan. Unlike most trees, this particular tree is colorful from the bottom to the top. Here is a fun fact. Local fishermen have used this tree as their guide to find Mactan island when they’re at sea.

The resort has over 100 rooms, but the most popular rooms would be the cottages on the beach. Each room has a modern beach vibe with comfy lights all over the room, including under the bed. They also have a picnic table and two seats. The bathroom is just as impressive with its Instagrammable bathtub and shower. Each bathroom also has enormous mirrors with a cabinet complete with a bath gel, beach slippers, and a toothbrush with toothpaste.
