Bolinao proved to be a chore in the way of finding suitable accommodation online in the region of 2000 peso's, but perseverance brought us to Ilog's website and we decided to stay here for three nights early in November 2013.
Located roughly halfway between Bolinao Town and Patar Beach (approx. 15 min trike ride to both), the resort is set in peaceful surroundings along the coast. The beach here is not in the same league as Patar although the view across the ocean is splendid.
Despite what the website quotes, we paid less - around 1300 peso's for a standard room which included breakfast. Considering this scenic resort has a pool too, we found this to be great value. The room itself may have been fairly basic but it was presentable and satisfactory enough.
The owner and staff are extremely friendly and helpful which is always an added bonus when staying somewhere, and an evening meal is optional and added to the room bill if required. Should you have your own vehicle, it's possible to park it next to your room if Its located on the ground floor.
Overall as a resort, Ilog Malino comes recommended, and should you wish to stay somewhere cheaper than some of the other better known advertised establishments in Bolinao, Ilog may be your answer.More
