The New Villa (standard Rooms)
Treasures of Bolinao Beach Resort is located in Barangay Patar, Bolinao, Pangasinan. We chose to stay in this Bolinao resort mainly because Patar White Beach is accessible from it. As its name suggests, Patar white beach has fine, white sand although not as powdery white as Boracay sand or Bohol sand. Nevertheless, we enjoyed our stay in Patar beach. It was not crowded even when we went there on the peak summer month of April. Patar white beach is also known as the Boracay of the North but without the maddening crowd.

The resort rates in Treasures of Bolinao are relatively high; the cheapest is the villa room which costs PhP 4000 overnight for 2 persons. We stayed at the New Villa standard room which costs PhP 4500 per night for 2 persons. We also paid PhP 800 per additional person, breakfast included. It would be just fine to pay such amount if only the room was well-maintained. But the room looked rundown and the beds were not comfortable.
We stayed in Treasures of Bolinao resort for 2 nights. On our second day, we went to Alaminos City, Pangasinan for a day tour to Hundred Islands. We were not able to visit the other tourist spots of Bolinao due to time constraint.
The concrete bridge overlooking the sea would have been a great point of intereset in Treasures of Bolinao resort. Previously, it must have been a magnificent sight. But when we were there, the bridge was already deteriorating. The lamp posts and flags adorning it were gone and it looked about to collapse. We still crossed the bridge to have a different view of the sea but the magic of it was gone.
Hopefully by this time, the management of Treasures is already reconstructing the concrete bridge. It would be a waste to leave it in this state.

Patar white beach is accessible from Treasures of Bolinao through a concrete pathway. The waves in Patar beach are really strong. Kids should be accompanied by their guardians in the beach since the kids may be swept out to the sea.

The real treasure to be found in Bolinao is the sunset. It was really stunning! Here are some sunset photos we were able to take in Patar beach:
