Compostela’s Green Lagoon

I’ve heard so much about Green Lagoon Park in Canamucan in the town of Compostela. They say that it’s a beach resort with a pool and various amenities. I never really got interested, though, because the resort, when viewed from the highway, seemed like a cheap getaway built right smack in the middle of a mangrove forest. Haha. Also, whenever I travel up North, my usual pit stops are Liloan and Danao. Incidentally, my uncles and cousins decided to go to Compostela over the weekend for a little excursion. I was originally against the idea of going to Green Lagoon but they all won me over (simply because they were paying. Hahaha).

Anyway, I’m glad that I went because I was finally able to see the place for my self. And considering that I had a negative impression of the place, I must say that the place wasn’t shabby at all. In fact, I liked the place. So, here are some photos of the resort. If you’ve been to Green Lagoon park, tell us what you think!

Of course, no pit stop in Liloan is complete without the Liloan Lechon!


Of course, there’s the Cebuano favorite – Puso!

This young boy is selling another Cebuano favorite – Masi!


Finally! Green Lagoon Park. Telephone Number 425-6008

Rates for their various rides. They also have calesa rides for Php20 each.

They have a barbecue strips for those who don’t like to bring stuff from home.

Huts usually referred to as ‘cottages’. Php500 each.

View of the coast of Compostela. Nice.

Nice looking beach houses. Wow!

That house looked really gorgeous.

The beach. The sand is not too fine. But it’s all right. The water is cool, anyways. :)

Close up of the cottages.

Green Lagoon Park is a clean resort. Nice.

Kids enjoying the water.

Right in the middle of the property is a big green pond. I think this was how the place got its name. Hehe.

I’m not exactly sure what they were doing. But I have a feeling that they were trying to reclaim it.

The swimming pool. Nice.

Cool! Perfect for the kids.

Water slides!

Pool rules and rates!

Nice looking rooms.

  29. well, gkan mi didto 3 days ago (Jan. 19 2012) to celebrate my ate’s birthday… ok ra unta ang place daku, daghan cottages og rooms…ang swimming pool nice ra cya para sa mga kids kay murag taga paa/hawak raman sa mga adults naa ra cgru sa 3 feet kalawm. then ang dagat bati ka lubog ug lapokon and the WORST is the management. Liman ka ni kuha mi ug 6 rooms (1-6) with 4 extra bed (foam ra diay kay ilang extra bed foam raman na ma fold) then pag morning nanguli na tanan ug kami nlng nabilin sa room 6…the time nga finish nami ligo ug ready na jud to leave kay pangita-an pami sa recibo, unsa ilang gusto mangukay pami sa mga basura nga everytime namo request ug rooms and bed and other services bayad man dayon then nganu mangita paman sa receipt? then mga BOGO pa jud kaau, kay nangita sa key sa room #3 nga ang nkuha sa nag check/clean sa room kay 6 keys man pero 2pcs ang #1 then wla ang #3… pero 6 keys ra ghapon sa 6 rooms… hastang hasola jud ug dli jud accommodating ilang mga tao, mura kay d costumer mura man noon ta ug kawatan ug yawe ani….unsa ilang yawe gold? sus ginoo, dli raba jud worth among nagasto ngadtu nga mag overnight lagi mi sa ilang pool nga taga tohod then unsaon man nga 10P.M. e close nman…

    Ang ako lng jud masulti,kung naa mo lain option nga place ayaw nlng jud mo didto… sayang inyo money!!!

    • mao ba Gan…kayasa gud…ari bya me mag outing unta this sun…good that u mentioned na taga hawak rah ang pool ky dilllllllliiii na lang jud ko maligo ..hahaha!!!!

      pareha jud ni sa amo experience…lami kaau ni ipa bombo ang lugara ky pirme mangayo ug charge…!50 ang charge kada lihok ug avail sa ila mga facilities…oh my gosh, nag abang mi ug room for an overnight, den pabayron pa mn nuon mi ug another 150 sa swimming pool..unsa mn diay nah among gi abangan na room, wala na diay na labot ang pool?haler,common sense kono?unsa gud ni? alangan ra mn pd ng overnyt mi diri unya room ra amo gi ovrnytan..saon! mosukol pa jud ug customers ang mga staff…really sucks jud ni nga place…such a nightmare…mga nawong ug kwarta..bati ra ba ilang place…ipa BOMBO jud tamo..huwat lng!

      • That is why barato ra ila entrance kay you have the option to avail their facilities with charges or not unlike other resorts nga mahal kaayo ang entrance kay dala nman sa facilities like pool. What do you expect man sd tawn sa P20/head uie? And as stated sa pool rules and rates, P120 ra ang night use sa adult. Rooms are good for 2pax and free of use sa pool pero kung ni exceed mu ug 2pax, diha namu mu bayad para sa extra bed ug use sa pool which is P150/head. The staffs are just following the rules given by the management kay sila pud intawn ang makatapal. :D

        • correct!!! kanang daghan reclamo hai naku adto mog waterfront ky accommodating ang mga staff dd2 ug convenient gyod but since green lagon is cheaper yaw namu pag-expect ug sobra….

      • That’s why barato ra kaayo ila entrance fee kay you have the option to avail their facilities with charges or not unlike other resort na mahal ila entrance fee kay dala nman na sa facilities like sa pool. What do expect man sd intawn sa P20/hd na entrance uie, free na sa tnan facilities? Rooms are good for 2pax with free use of pool pero if ni exceed namu, that’s the time you pay for P150/hd for the extra bed and P100/hd para sa pool. Kung dka gnhan ug charges, pwd rman ka dli mu avail sa ila mga facilities. The staffs were just following the managements’ rules and rates kay sila pud tawn ang makatapal. :D

    • Maybe ila ra g.double check ang n.u receipt for some reasons. With regards sa key, g.clarify lang guro sa staff kung naa ba nn.u ang key, di man sd guro bogo ang mu ask lang. And lastly, it was clearly stated sa Rules and Regulations sa pool na mg close jud cla ug 10pm kay ila pman e.treat ang pool. FYI: ang taga tuhod which is 2ft kay sa pang bata and 4ft ang sa may slide dpit. :D

    • it is sounds you are first timer mag hotel, foam lang talaga ang extra. most of the hotels … and bayaran concern talaga receipt is needed if need confirmation. keys it is natural to return to reception asking nothing wrong kong maayos lang na pag uusap.. but the way isa pobliko ang naramdaman u dapat pag isipan mo ng hosto kong tama kaba.. ..wake up…….

  30. thanks for this. i have now the idea on where we gonna celebrate our party. definitely, this place. :)

  31. Evangeline
    I just want to know how per room and it’s capacity and if I take room/s do I need to for the usage of the swimming pool? And I want to know also, if I need to pa the entrance if I only want to rent the cottage.
    Thanks in advance.

    • Hi! as per inquiry… If you take room it costs 1,200 pesos good for 2 persons free use of swimming pool & entrance & 150 pesos charge for extra person exclusive use of pool & fee for entrance. Room capacity 4 persons only. I don’t know about the cottage. :-)

  32. leylander walay ju d motabag sa phone…unsaon pagpareserve?

    Green Lagoon really sucks…it’s kinda a corrupt place. Everything you try to ask and you try to do, there’s always a charge. Hey, what kind of resort is this? The staffs are even unfriendly and always craving for money or charge from the costumers. They don’t have good service and good ambiance. They are just looking after the money from the costumers. If you are fooled by them, then they’ll enjoy your penny. Damn all of them…such a terrible experience to be in this place. Shit. I’d rather not recommend this place to everyone. I thought this was a good resort, but to our surprise…wow, what a nightmare!

  34. mao vah……….hanap nlang kami ibang place……….interesting nman kasi ang name niya……”GREEN LAGOON” oh divah!

  35. nag second thought nah noun ko.. asa inyo lain ika recomrnd nga nice sa adults and children nga resort?

  63. anthony ian // March 27, 2013 at 4:08 pm // Reply

    kaya lng yung mga rooms walang t.v…sayang kaya i look for another place this holy week…

  64. Everything is set already for our summer outing here in Green Lagoon on April 19. The pictures posted here are so convincing, however, when we read the bad comments against the staffs in particular and the management in general, we’re now doubtful to pursue our plans. Supposedly, the reasons in going there are for relaxation, refreshment, bonding and fun- we’re afraid that they might turn into a disgusting scenario because of the staffs’ unpleasant accommodation . Deep in our hearts, we’d like also to try and explore the place and find out more from their resort specially their management. Now, that we’re in 2013 already, hoping for a lot of improvements/developments from their facilities, amenities, comfort rooms and bedrooms with pleasant costumer care and services. “A GOOD MANAGEMENT GAINS A GOOD RECOMMENDATION FROM THE CLIENTS”.

    Thanks Ley for posting these beautiful sights of the resort and everyone who was bold enough to blog on his true feelings and experiences in the said resort.

I thought it would be a great place for a family reunion.As a result the staff greeted us with insults! Couldn’t care less about the douchebags that work there. This place blows stay away and spend your money some where else..
