Rencio’s Resort: A Perfect Getaway

Rencio's Resort

Rencio’s Resort

A well established, family owned and operated business where you will always find a warm, friendly atmosphere. Offer a comfortable lodging in the hotel rooms, chinese-filipino-style cooking in their restaurant, and a place to relax and socialize in the Videoke Bar.

Rencio’s Resort was just a big salt-water fishpond located at the heart of the town proper, Odiongan. The owner brought it just to have a place to go fishing with his family and friends.

Sometime in 1997, the idea of developing the place into a resort was conceptualized. A small part of the fishpond was turned into a swimming pool for adults and kids. Then construction continued a building for a restaurant with videoke bar and a second floor for function rooms. Then eight-room hotel for accommodations, two annexes buildings were added and also a native inspired bamboo nipa hut. The surroundings are not only fish ponds but have well-landscaped beautiful gardens.

Business officially started March, 2002.

The place is open for all types of wedding, birthday or baptismal parties, all kinds of celebration, private and government meetings and seminars.

Enjoy their Chinese and Filipino dishes, relax at the pool, see beautiful gardens and have a peaceful stay at Rencio’s Resort, probably the best in the province of Romblon.rencio's

FACILITIES

Rencio’s has around 12 rooms of different sizes, starting at P1200 (air con) or P500 (fan) for two people. The rooms are only of average quality for their price, with aging furnishings, tiny TV (cable) and basic amenities. They are at least clean (smelling of disinfectant) and adequately comfortable for a night’s stay.

 

 

There is a large dining and entertainment area (suitable for large parties), with pleasant outdoor garden seating adjacent. There is a videoke machine and TV also in this area. The restaurant seems to be popular with the locals in the evenings, where people meet for eating, drinking and singing.

There are large fish ponds around the resort, too.
