While other guests were already leaving Bellarocca at 6:30 AM due to the regular flight schedule, we were enjoying an al fresco breakfast overlooking the mountains and the sea. To maximize our stay at Bellarocca, we booked a room at BOAC hotel for an overnight stay so we could transfer in the afternoon after we checked out of Bellarocca. We didn’t want to check out at 6AM for the morning flight since we still wanted to stay for half a day at the resort. But since complimentary transfers are based on Zest Air schedule, we had to pay P600 for the sea transfer after we checked out at 12 noon.
After a hearty meal, we donned our rash guards again for some watersports activities. We tried windsurfing and jet skiing!
Beach- Bellarocca doesn’t have the best beach. It is rocky-corally but forgivable because of the beautiful view and the staffs who will never leave you while doing some watersports activities. There’s always one assigned to teach, help you and to look after you until you finish the activity.
Swimming Pools- I love the infinity pool!
Food-Some were good, some were ok, some needs improvement. There were only a few selection of food on the buffet. I hope they will add more but I understand that they don’t have that much guests yet compared to other high end resorts.
Resort Staffs- Courteous and always smiling! Extraordinary efforts are made by the staffs to ensure a pleasant stay at the resort.
If you can find a good deal, Bellarocca is well worth a visit. Since the deal that we availed includes a Php20,000 welcome value credit, I can say that our stay at Bellarocca was well worth the price we paid. Food is kinda expensive. We actually exceeded the Php20,000 allowance for our food and beverage. Or maybe we just have a voracious appetite reason we exceeded! lol!

Welcome drink at the BOAC Hotel.
We got a family deluxe room for Php2,000. It took an hour before we reached the hotel. It was sunday and most establishments were closed! We weren’t able to visit some tourist spots around the town.
Lunch at Cafe Mamita (Php835) Crispy pata, Shrimp sinigang, ampalaya con carne, sizzling tuna and fried chicken
Trying to get drunk!
Arrowroot cookies are Marinduque’s specialty. They are available at the BOAC hotel. I purchased some for my Mom and Aunts.
