Jed’s Island Resort Review, Price List and Room Rates

Summer is almost gone, but the heat is still up and you are sitting there dying to splash on a cold pool of water. Swimming pool resorts in the Philippines are a hit even for the beach loving creatures especially when it’s just a 2-hour drive from Manila, like let’s say Calumpit Bulacan ;)

Yesterday, my family went to Jed’s Island Resort in Calumpit. We did a lot of internet research before that of course. And of all the list of Philippine resorts, aside from its scattered tarpaulins, we chose it simply because they allow bringing of food and drinks inside without extra cost. But don’t worry they weren’t famous for nothing. Besides a cheap entrance fee compared to others, this resort has a lot more to offer.

The amenities were good and enticing.

  • 2 kiddie pools
  • 7ft. pool
  • 15 ft diving pool
  • Wave pool
  • Life-sized cartoon figures for photo-opportunities
  • Pool Fountains
  • Slides
  • Live Band
  • Videoke Machines
  • Boating and Fishing
  • Park
  • Hanging Bridge
  • Billiards
  • Horse-back Riding

We arrived there at I think, 9 in the morning. After parking our van, the first thing we felt was shock. There were lots of people! And I mean looots! Well, it was a Saturday on a summer so what else would we expect. After making sure the kids (and the oldies) are within our view and our bags still complete we purchased the tickets. And one by one we entered and followed the usherette to our designated cottage.
We were hungry and tired, but the kids, upon seeing the large ship and slides in the middle of the pool, they went wild. They didn’t even want to eat! So we dressed up and dipped.

Tips:
1. There are carts available for your bags, coolers and food (which we already saw too late) for you to use.
2. Though there were only 12 of us, we ended up renting two cottages because the cottage was really just enough for you to sit. It has a limited space for your bags and extra baggage.
3. Roam around and take pictures before the sun comes up. The resort is big.
4. You can rent the videoke machine so you can use it when the sun is too hot.
5. Don’t forget the free wifi.
Cons:
The only thing that bugged me is the shower rooms. They really have dirty shower rooms. Imagine this: the drainage is blocked, the water is dirty with soap and shampoo suds and is overflowing on the floor. There are sachets and napkins on the floor! Plus there are no place to hang your dry clothes or a shelf to place your things. The sanitation was really bad and there were no janitors around. The showers were of no use.- you can bathe better using a sprinkler. Also, an accident happened when a kid slipped on the floor because their shower rooms use regular slippery tiles. And another thing, the wave pool isn’t that great too because it isn’t the resort’s main attraction. If you are really looking forward to a wave pool, I suggest looking for another resort.
If you don’t really mind the things I mentioned, all in all, I could say that Jed’s Island Resort was really a fun place to be, especially if you are planning to bring kids. A whole day would just go by. It doesn’t really matter where you are right? What matters is who you are with. And in our case, out whole clan was there so there was never a dull moment.
