Thunderbird Resort Poro Point: Santorini in San Fernando La Union

When you're in La Union, you'll notice a lot of posters of Thunderbird Resort Poro Point which will entice you to come and visit.  Since we we're in the area, we Travel Tripsters decided to check it out.

The view of the entire resort from afar is beautiful.  It has a blue and white theme which is the exact color of the Santorini in Greece.  The place is elevated to so you can enjoy a nice view of the pool side, beach and the sea.

If you've enjoined the back view, this is the front with the drive way.  They have a shuttle that brings in guests from other parts of Luzon.  My aunt who is a local of La Union told us that it is better to visit at night because the lights makes this place more exquisite.  They have a wide space for parking for its very convenient.

The lobby area is a non-air conditioned area with a circular ceiling with blue painted sophisticated Greek paintings.  We came at mid-day around 2 p.m. and it was scorching hot.

There is also a cafe but it seems empty perhaps because no one wanted to get exposed to the heat.

The Olives is the only restaurant at Thunderbird Resort Poro Point apart from the two other in the casino.  It is a fine dining restaurant.  It was fully packed when we got there with customers waiting in line on their outdoor bench.  We decided to just come back and dine here next time.

The pool area had al fresco tables and chairs.  There's also a half court and a volleyball area.  There is also a way to the beach which can only be used by their guests and members.  They also have a golf course.

There is a simple outdoor theater which I presume can be used as a stage for a party.

The lots beside the resort is being sold and developed into units like this.  The resort services extends here to.

This is what the units look like from afar.  I think once every unit is occupied, it will look more of a Santorini when numerous structures in the villa will be complete.

Aside from the casino, the facilities are for members.  So if you are interested in more than just sight seeing like we did, better check in.  My cousin says the service is really good and the rooms are grand.  My aunt says shareholders have a FREE stay once per year.  That's a very cool perks. =D

Overall, for us Travel Tripsters, Thunderbird Resort Poro Point is worth checking out for sight-seeing, casino or a luxurious stay.  The beach side they offer is more peaceful since its exclusive unlike the beaches on other parts of La Union.  We saw that there's a huge complex being constructed as their Wellness Center.  We'll probably be back to check it out next time.
