Larville Resort - Find Solace in Alcoy, Cebu

Life in the city can accumulate stress on us. The everyday routine of waking up early, preparing to go to work, battling the heat of sun and the crowded traffic jammed streets will tire us out eventually. So from time to time, we need to take off and go to a vacation. But if you're going to crowded beaches, you may end up stressed as well due to the noise of the busy coast. At times, what you really need is solace or probably just a company of few friends or family in a place where only few people are there.

Well, there's lot of choices when it comes to that criteria but in this article, I would recommend Larville Pool Garden Resort and Restaurant in Alcoy, Cebu. What's with that resort? Well, read on.

Larville Resort - A Small and Quiet Place

What I found  good in Larville is its size. It was just a small resort with small pool. With that, they can only accommodate few guests. As far as I can remember, they only have few rooms - 6 units? Although the beach is not usable for swimming, the pool and the jacuzzi will suffice to give you the relaxing experience you want. At low tide though, you can walk the extended shore of the beach and pick up shells.

Alcoy is actually in the eastern side of Cebu so you can only see the sunrise. But I'll tell you, the view of the sunrise is beautiful. Combined that with the natural sound of splashing sea at around 5 in the morning and you'll be able to relieve off your stress.

If you want to swim on the sea, you can go to Tingko Beach, an open and free white sand beach. From Larville, it would take about 10 minutes of tricycle travel to reach Tingko. Just pay for the tables you may need during your stay there.

Services at Best

Probably the best thing about Larville Resort is the service. The employees were friendly and helpful. You can ask them to cook foods at a reasonable price. In our case we requested fish fillets, mixed veggies, and fried fish. The foods were cleanly prepared.

Larville Resort also have free Wi-fi internet access.

We actually stayed there for two days and one night but that short stay was really relaxing and memorable.


Larville Resort is located in the municipality of Alcoy, at the southern part of Cebu. Taking Ceres bus from Cebu City (South Bus Terminal), it would take only 2 to 3 hours to reach the place. It was located along the road. You could probably ask the driver's assistant (conductor) to stop the bus in front of Larville Resort.

4 Steps to Replace Stolen or Lost Passbook

My passbook (inside my bag) was recently stolen inside a local grocery store, and I would like to share the steps I took to secure my account and get a new passbook.      By User:Aerous ", CC BY-SA 3.0 , Link The steps outlined here are for a BPI savings account, but generally, the procedure will be very similar to other banks in the Philippines. 1. Call the Bank to Secure Your Account The first and most crucial step you need to do immediately is to contact your bank by phone or personally report it to the branch where you opened the account. This action will ensure that funds will stay put. The bank will lock the account immediately. The big banks have 24/7 hotlines. For BPI, it's 889-100. You have to do this step ASAP after discovering the loss. 2. Go to the Branch to Ask for a Replacement of the Passbook It can mean a simple replacement of the lost passbook, but it can also mean closing the entire account and opening a new one for security purposes. 3. Get an Affidav

Resigning? SSS Will Deduct Your Loan Balance from Your Last Pay

The purpose of this article is to inform the public about this policy of the Social Security System (SSS), the government-owned insurance company for those employed in the private sector. I just learned about this a few months ago when my company announced a workforce reduction program. Among the sad discussions is about this policy of SSS regarding loans in cases of resignation or retrenchment. Section G-2 of the SSS Loan Terms and Conditions (at the back of the loan application form) explicitly says the following: "The employer shall deduct the total balance of the loan from any benefit/s due to the employee and shall remit the same in full to SSS, in case the member-borrower is separated voluntarily (e.g., retirement or resignation) or involuntarily (e.g., termination of employment or cessation of operations of the company)." In other words, y ou will be required to pay the rest of your loan (including the interest) when you change employer or employment statu

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad needs a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. I did a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, it depends on many factors, such as which body part is to be scanned. There's also this technique called "MRI with contrast," wherein the patient will be injected with a chemical to make the scan clearer. For your information, this technique of adding contrast is known as  Gadolinium Contrast Medium . It adds cost to the procedure, but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis. MRI Machine KasugaHuang , CC BY-SA 3.0 , Link So, in my father's case, we had a  Prostate MRI,  and I assume it was without contrast since he was never injected with the "contrast" chemicals. We got it in  i-Scan Healthcare Inc.  here in Quezon City. The cost is  13000 Pesos . Please take note that the amount was just for the scan, and a separate professional will read the result. Some laboratories offer this service (i.e
