Location, easiest way to get there
Address: 80 Buton St, Sitio Labasin, Barangay Sabang, Baler, Aurora

If you’re bringing a private vehicle, travel time would be around 5 to 6 hours. From Manila, vehicle can take NLEX via Sta. Rita exit and head towards Nueva Ecija. Just go straight, passing by Cabanatuan City then take the Camiling-Pantabangan road straight up. Travelers will be passing through several mountains on the way up until it reaches the province of Aurora. Another option would be to pass the NLEX-SCTEX route passing through Tarlac-Zaragoza-Sta. Rosa and continue on to Cabanatuan City, which will lead you all the way to Aurora.

If you’re taking the public transportation, the Joybus would be highly recommended. It is the executive coach bus line of Genesis Transport that goes directly to Baler. The terminal is located at the corner of Edsa and New York Street in Cubao. There are only two scheduled trips: 12 midnight and another one at 2:30 a.m. Reserving a few days in advance is highly encouraged since it gets fully-booked easily.

What makes this hotel stand out
Aside from surfing activities, the location of the hotel is just a few minutes away from other tourist spots such as Museo de Baler and Dona Aurora’s House. There are other destinations that travelers can enjoy such as the world-famous Charlie’s Point, Cemento Reef, Balete Tree, waterfalls, and other coves.

The hotel offers guests a wide range of mouthwatering local and international dishes from their two restaurants in The Beach House and Café Rosa.  Along with the combination of the breath taking scenery of the ocean, the establishment is also the ideal place to hold events in The Pavilion.

The 160 rooms in the resort are spacious, complementing its contemporary design. Instead of the usually safe all-white interiors, each room in Costa Pacifica carries refreshing pops of color such as yellow, orange, and turquoise matched with a display of tropical posters that completes the surfer theme—it’s fun and laid-back at the same time. Aside from the LCD TV and air-conditioning, guests stay connected with the resort’s free Wi-Fi.

What guests are saying
As of October 2013, Cost Pacifica Resort enjoys a “fantastic 8.6” rating.

“My 12-year old son wanted to try surfing. This Hotel is absolutely the best in the area. The lobby is world-class, reminds me of the hotels in the Caribbean. The open space is always wind-swept, since the beach is just in front. Staff is always smiling and seems genuinely happy to serve. Food at the Beach House restaurant is excellent. I’m still savoring the pinakbet. The room was designed with good taste. The bathroom was impeccable. I’ve been here two weekends in a row now. And we will be back next weekend too.”
—Rosauro J, family traveler from the Philippines, October 2013

“Our stay was great. We have a great room with friendly staff. Good food was also served. The best location, just a few steps away from the beach with lots of water sports to choose from. One good hotel for all ages. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back.”
—Vanessa L, couple traveler from Philippines, April 2013
