It was May 15, 2010 that me and my friends decided to go to this place known as Caliraya, it is a mountain with a lake and lots of resort area where people/tourist are able to play some water sports.
Some people reserves this resort with the same name as the area (owned by St. Francis Square group of companies) as a place where they can host several team building activities for those companies with enough resources to hire thousands of employees.
When we arrived at their part you are required to park your car in a given area away from the resort because you'll be riding a boat from there, I was able to go to Caliraya before like when I was in 3rd year high school I think, it's the same murky, scary and very deep lake as before.
The resort offered a few stuff for entertainment such as the giant ball you see in the photo below, you can see me and the ball and how huge it is.
The resort is very grassy and since Caliraya is located on top of a mountain the wind is not that bad but it could use a little boost.
You'll see several grazing animals such as a water buffalo and a horse they're not very interesting animals and they didn't even notice the piece of fruit I've thrown at them
What I really disliked is the 10minute hike going to the cafeteria, they don't even have a restaurant, everything is packaged because you only get three meals breakfast, lunch and dinner or whichever according to your package, the 10minute hike going to the cafeteria is exhausting, when you walk slowly it'll take you 15minutes.
Another which I disliked is the food, it's not bad but it's boring.
Other activities worth mentioning are fishing, swimming at the pool (not the lake ewww) wall climbing, gliding or zip-line and jumping in a trampoline like what Molly's doing in the photo.
The rooms where we slept were ok they're air-conditioned, they have two bathrooms, and the beds are fairly comfotable.
Of course what's important is not the place you go but the people you are with I really enjoyed the company of my friends.
Also would I be recommending this place? Well probably if you are a group consisting of 5 or more people but for couples stay away from this place it's not romantic.
