Papa Kits Marina and Fishing Lagoon: A Review Part 1

I have heard about the many activities that can be done in Papa Kits and I have been curious of their restaurant, so me and my wife decided to go there ourselves and try it out.

The entrance to Papa Kits Fishing Lagoon is near a church and even when commuting, it is quite easy to locate. The entrance fee when you are not staying overnight is 100 pesos, half of which is said to be consumable for snacks.

Just by the entrance is the horseback-riding area and bicycle area. One can rent bikes for a certain period (forgot the rates) and do biking of course with your friends, barkada or sweetheart. Or you can rent a horse for P75 per 15 minutes per head and have the chance to ride it in a certain stretch of the property. Initially the guide will hold the horse by a rope as you all take a stroll then towards the other half of the route, you are given the opportunity to "drive" the horse yourself with the guide beside you.

In some distance from the entrance is the Fishing Lagoon and Restaurant. To get there, you can either walk or opt to ride on their free transport which can bring you to various parts of the property.

So let's talk about the restaurant.  It is located in the vicinity of the fishing area. The fishing area consists of cottages where families can do their fishing and perhaps eat their catch along with other items ordered.

Here is what we ordered throughout our overnight stay and they were all delicious especially the seafoods. You can also have a fresh fish from their aquarium cooked for an additional service fee.

One thing to improve on is the service especially during peak days like Sundays. We went there on a Sunday and the staff is overwhelmed with the big number of diners not to count those who were fishing on the cottages which they ahve to serve also. Plates, spoon and fork were lacking. Perhaps they would have to find a way to meet the demand during these peak times especially Sunday lunch time.

Next part will be on the other attractions at Papa Kits...
