I woke up in time for breakfast with this view from our room's veranda. If breakfast is not served buffet style, I would have just ordered room service again and eat here. There's a form in the room where you can choose from either Filipino, Continental or American breakfast, hang it in your doorknob and food will be served in your room at your desired time. Spell spoiled and convenient!
Buffet breakfast is served at Olives Restaurant which is located right beside the room below us.
The restaurant was half full when we arrived. We immediately scouted the spread to take note which one's to get first. First stop was the salad/cold cuts/fresh fruits/cheese/yogurt and muesli bar.
The cook at the egg station was so kind and nice. He checks on me every time I pass by his station if I wanted eggs so he'll cook it right away daw.
If you're a heavy eater and likes rice in the morning, there are a lot of viands that you can choose from.

Aside from overflowing coffee and tea, there are available fresh fruit juices and chocolate drink for kids. Beside that are containers of cereals and a bread and pastry tower.
We were able to try pretty much everything in the buffet. The more notable ones for me are
|Chicken Arroz Caldo -- Tasty and had chunks of chicken. I love that I can |
put lots of garlic and leeks in it which I absolutely like.
|Muesli -- I can eat this everyday. Paging Mom!|
|Appetizing Smoked Tanigue, Mushroom Ham and Cheese|
|Scrambled egg with lots of vegetables inside|
|Ultra Crispy Bacon, Tender Pork Mechado and Yummy Daing na Bangus with Rice|
|Refreshing Watermelon Juice|
I slept like a baby the night before then had an amazing brunch at the restaurant before going back to our room to sleep again. This is what a real vacation is, I wouldn't trade this for anything else.
