Flamingoes Resort, Marikina City

A perfect venue for night swimming this summer peak season is Flamingoes Resort in Marikina City. We were there two weeks ago for a joint birthday party and we had fun! There were just enough people and enough lifeguards to man the pools.
 Entrance fee is only P150 and the cottage for more than 10 of us was only P500.  They have this big convenience store inside where you can buy a lot of things.  They also charge corkage fees for alcoholic drinks and soft drinks. And please note that they do not allow knives to be taken inside the resort.  They have this table near the entrance where you can do your chopping if needed.
They have lots of cottages depending on the number of people in your group. I just took a photo of the different types of cottages.

Here is the kiddie pool where we stayed most of the night just lying on the water and exchanging stories.
This is one of the big adult pools.  The mushroom has a shower but its turned off when I took this photo. There is also a big fountain of water coming out from the wall of this big pool!
This is another pool near the entrance of the resort, near the private rooms.  The side with the Nemo slide is shallow, while the other side is up to 5 ft.
This is the slide on the middle pool, just across the bridge. 
They also have one area for grilling and washing and you can rent pitchers at the convenience.  Their shower area was adequate for us because there were only a few people when we were there. But I cant imagine if the resort was full.  The restrooms are dirty and littered with shampoo wrappers but I think its the guests who are at fault here.  The cleaners were male and cant come in to clean right away.  There were ample trash cans but the guests just litter. Oh well!  Sorry for the dark pictures as I took them at night with a point and shoot camera.
