Location: Barangay Saljag, Calbayog City, Samar, Philippines

The luxurious beach resort of Mondejares Puertes

This luxurious beach resort has its advantage of its good location with a not-so-crowded place nestled along a prestine beach coast richly shaded with tropical coconut trees in Barangay Saljag, Calbayog City which is just 35 minutes from Calbayog City proper. It caters for a family accommodation, a traveler on a budget or a romantic couple wanting a romantic getaway. Guests here has the option to enjoy a swim on its pool or on its beach front. Its location is more than two kilometers away from Pan Philippine Highway and from there, one needs a private transport. But there is a public transport from Calbayog City which passes from that point of the highway. I suppose, from that point, there might be tricycle for hire to get inside this resort.

You might find this link useful if you opt to travel by bus to Calbayog City

Please note that when you travel by bus, you have to pass through the Pan-Philippine Highway along Bicol Peninsula heading for Matnog Port of Sorsogon province, the tip of Luzon Island. Then, a ferry boat of 1 hour and 30 minutes will take you either to San Isidro or Allen ports, both part of Northern Samar and the bus drive will take you for another 1 hour and 30 minutes heading to Calbayog City. If there are no delays most particular in the ferry boat travel, it will only take 17 hours from Manila to Calbayog City but be prepared for additional money for your meals during bus stops for meals averages to P150 not to include the drinking water. The cost of the ferry fare is already included in the bus fare. However, the terminal fee in Matnog and Northern Samar is shouldered by the passenger.

Or you may also opt to travel by plane where Calbayog has its airport and this link maybe of great help to you.


To avoid costly food during bus stops, take with you food and drinking water. In addition, it is also very cold in the bus as you are boarding an airconditioned one. Thus, take with you a thick jacket.

It is also advisable to take with you additional cash for the crossing in Matnog to Northern Samar sometimes get delays and so you need to spend additional cost for your meals.

It is also cheaper to travel in group as expenses can be shared. Chartered vans are available in Calbayog City and you can even maximize your travel itinerary on a Samar-Leyte-Biliran trips where I tried it in a group of 10 for 8 days and we only spent approximately P14,000 which we opted to take a bus travel from Manila to Calbayog City and going back to Manila we took our route via Cebu City by plane coming from Maasin City of Southern Leyte.

Do not worry, if you spend this amount. There are a lot of places where you can visit in Calbayog but that will entail additional cost. Good luck and enjoy.
