Hotel de Susana and Resort, Valencia, Bukidnon

Nothing can recharge me better than a fancy staycation somewhere peaceful and beautiful. The first quarter of 2017 is nothing but full of stress for me, I felt like I deserved some self-loving. I have heard so much good stuff about Hotel de Susana and Resort from friends and I’d love to experience it myself. I’ve only been there a few times to dine but I’ve never got to stay there so I was so delighted when Hotel De Susana and Resort invited me for a staycation. It’s a perfect way to get off the grid for a while after an eventful week.


Hotel De Susana and Resort is situated at Purok 2, Patag - Bagontaas, Valencia City, a few kilometers away from the city proper. The resort is surrounded with nicely manicured garden, giving you a serene atmosphere - Making it an ideal place to stay whether for business or leisure in Bukidnon. 

If you've been wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of your everyday grind with your family, friends or your special someone, why not travel to Bukidnon and enjoy our chilly climate?  

I arrived a bit late in the afternoon; I passed thru the automatic sliding door and was welcomed by the grandiose looking lobby, adorned with lavish chandeliers and the smiling staff behind the front desk. Checking- in was a breeze. I filled up some forms and I was given an electronic key card and was ushered to my room located at the 2nd floor right after that. It was a long bus ride from Cagayan de Oro so I immediately showered and changed to my comfiest clothes.

I got the junior executive suit and boy oh boy, it was definitely huge. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean. It has a king sized bed with clean smelling linens (something I am very particular of. so that’s a plus point! ), huge TV, huge cabinets, a fridge/Mini bar, coffee- maker,  a desk, comfortable sofa, BIG and classy bathroom, and my favorite, a small balcony with a beautiful view of the pool area. I am impressed and happy with the amenities inside the room. It is well- equipped with the essentials needed for a comfortable stay. One thing I felt was lacking though was extra pair of pillows or maybe that’s just me, I just want some extra pillows. There’s a free WI-FI too but I never got to try since I spent most of my time eating and sleeping. 


Complimentary toiletries are also provided (Shampoo, Conditioner, Lotion, and a Dental Kit)

As much as I wanted to try swimming at their pool at night time, I just had to pass and just eat dinner and have some beer AL fresco because It rained excessively that night. Apparently, I ordered so much and wanted to try everything on the menu but my appetite calls a room for beer and I obliged. Although, I was able to check out the pool area during daytime and it is as beautiful. 

A staycation wouldn't be complete without delicious food. Hotel De Susana and Resort also has an in-house restaurant. They serve a wide range of dishes, I only got to try a few but they were all good! ❤ Every booking comes with a complimentary breakfast for two and I availed pancakes the next morning. 

I was told that their best-seller is the baby back ribs. I ordered that and more because I am extremely famished from the long travel, I had Spicy Gambas, Ramen, and Banana Split alongside. 

The next morning, I ordered Pancakes and Crepe. WHAT AN APPETITE. The crepe was crazy good, I wanted a second serving. 

Everything on the menu is fairly priced and palatable. 

I would like to thank Hotel de Susana and Resort for this fabulous staycation. Overall, I had a grand time.

Mad Cow Pizza. The meaning of my life placed right before my eyes. This is tooooooo much to handle. YUM

I have always been a fan of anything with dough; I love quiche, empanadas, pies, and especially pizza. I enjoy pizza so much it’s one of my comfort food.  I got pretty excited when I heard that Pizzarella (Originally from Iligan City) is finally opening and coming to Cagayan de Oro City. No need to ask Iligan friends to buy me a box of Mad Cow Pizza. Yay!

Pizzarella Bistro was opened five years ago by the Portado brood of Iligan City. This business started with a dream and they made that dream into a fabulous reality. They wish to share these mouth-watering pizza products from Iliganons to Kagay-anons. Pizzarella opens it second branch in Cagayan de Oro City, strategically across The Nest along Corrales St. They have four branches in Mindanao, two in Iligan City and two in Cagayan de Oro City. 

I couldn’t count by my fingers at how many pizza places I’ve been to and I am very particular with my pizza standards. I’ve had too much bad pizza and plenty of good ones.  I’m not saying I’m a pizza pro but hey, it’s just me and I want my pizza with good dough. You know a crust that’s chewy but definitely not soggy. I’m no thin crust girl. I am happy to share with you that Pizarrella’s pizza dough didn’t fail me. With just one bite, you can already tell that it is of good quality, surely no weird artificial undertone taste you usually get from other commercial pizza place.

The ambiance of their store is rustic-inspired yet with contemporary cozy sensitivity. 

Their wide selection of tasty pizzas is sure to please even the pickiest eater. When you visit 
Pizzarella, be sure to order the Mad Cow Pizza and also the Chicago deep-dish pizza, Polpa. There’s something about it that I could not describe…  The meat and cheese medley is just so delightful with every bite. It is insanely moreish! I can see myself devouring this pizza when I’m sad, happy or when I’m PMS-ing.

 I got the chance to try a little bite of everything during the pizza party and I can say 
They are ultimately good. Apart from that, Green Jardin and Burgerella would be a bright choice for someone who likes a herby kick with your slice.

You can visit their website: for the Menu, prices, and ongoing promos.

Pizzarella opens today, May 26, 2017 at 10:00am. Grab your friends to their new branch at Corrales St. Fronting “The Nest”. Order the finest and enjoy it piping hot.
