(1) From the Marinduque Airport
From the airport, it’s a 45-minute ride to the port via Bellarocca’s van. By commute, one can take the jeepney going to Buenavista. The jeepneys pass just in front of the airport, but not very often. Probably every 30 minutes.

Bellarocca van is here!

From the port, it’s just a 5-minute ride to the very bella rocca (beautiful rock).

(3) Bellarocca Island Tour
One of the offered activities by the hotel is the Bellarocca Island tour where guests are toured around the island to see the facilities and the villas/terrazas etc. Getting around bellarocca is easy with these golf carts that are at your beck and call.

(5) The Beach
The beach…. well, there was hardly any, and that’s why they have a very beautiful pool. They said that they once had a man-made white beach of sorts here, but of course the waters only swallowed the sand whole and replaced with corals instead. Not to worry though, because they lend water shoes for free! I tried swimming here but… well even with the shoes I can’t enjoy it. We did kayak near the island, which is always fun.

(6) The Pools!
And then there’s the infinity pool! The most wonderful thing about it, aside from having a wonderful view of Mt Malindig, is that the water is always warm!  And oh, the water isn’t deep!

The worst thing about it is that it’s open only until 6pm! (The infinity pool, that is. The lap pool is until 9pm).

sunbathing, anyone?

i can stay here all day with a good book (there usually are umbrellas, except when it rains/drizzles, which is the case here)

They also have a lap pool located in the hotel – only 4 feet! Very family-friendly.

Of course, if you’re in a villa, you’ll have your very own infinity pool.

(7) Food in Bellarocca
Now, I’ve read a lot of complaints about the food. But during our stay, all our orders were fine. And filling. As to how much to budget for food: well, if you won’t order steak or lamb, a three-course meal (starter, main course, dessert, no drinks, will probably be around Php1,000 per person. Without starter and dessert, around Php600 per person, including VAT and service charge. If you’re into steak/lamb, they have it for around Php1,400, VAT and SC included.

If you’re on a really tight budget, they have chicken which can be shared by two people for around Php600. They also have pancit at around the same price, which is good for three people.

We brought chips but we hardly touched them. We were always full just with the meals we had at the hotel.
