Talicud Island | Leticia by the Sea.

Let me start this entry by thanking everyone who watched last night's PopTalk episode. If you saw an overweight, oily-faced, bungisngis person whose tagalog was kinda wonky, that was me! What a fun episode that was! Thank you! :)
PopTalk airs every Tuesday, 10pm over at GMA News TV

Now that the episode has been aired, I am free to write about the resorts we visited. First off: Leticia by the Sea. It is an incredibly beautiful oasis with lovely rolling gardens. The rooms and even the bathrooms are tastefully decorated. Everything in this resort is well-thought out. And the service, impeccable.

Just behind the resort's perfectly manicured garden facade is a secret paradise, tucked carefully between groves of coconut trees.

This is the room where Cherry and I stayed. How charming is this room? There's a ceiling fan, an aircon, a huge bathroom, a day bed which serves as an extra bed for one additional person, and a veranda with a spectacular view of the sea.

The rooms and bathrooms are decorated with antiques and heavy wooden furnitures which makes staying here feels luxurious.

The bathroom is the first thing I check whenever I stay in a hotel. I was glad that our bathroom was big and clean! And I love the pretty little details in it!

The family room is equally charming. It has huge sliding windows which reminds me so much of my grandparents' house. The room is airy and perfect for a family (or friends) of six.

This is one of the two open cabanas with a wonderful view of the garden and the sea. This certainly spells romance. It also has an open bathroom. Imagine taking a bath under the sun or the stars. That is quite magical.

The resort's pavilion is quite charming. Like the villas and rooms in this resort, the pavilion is decorated with old lovely things that would remind you of the comforts of home.

There are so many quiet corners in Leticia by the Sea. Here, you can sit and sip fresh buko juice and stare at crystal blue waters.

This is a perfect spot for coffee, tea, and conversations. Or maybe, bananacues, soda, and lots of laughter.

How fantastic is this open dining and kitchen? Nothing more wonderful than being surrounded by nature while dining!

The people behind Leticia by the Sea are also restauranteurs, so you can be assured that the food here is delicious.

Leticia by the Sea is a perfect place to retreat from the urban jungle. But this is also an awesome place for those who love some water adventure. They offer kayaking, diving, and popparazzi and banana boat rides.

Following PopTalk's criteria (amenities, service, and value for money), I say, Leticia by the Sea gets a perfect score. Oh, I would love to go back with my family and friends. And when I do, I will linger in bed in the mornings, go scuba diving in the afternoons, and stargaze in the veranda at night.
