Want to stay in an affordable beach resort in Misamis Oriental? Take a look at Lagoon Beach Resort which is about a 13-minute drive to Laguindingan Airport. Apart from the convenient concierge service and neat, clutter-free guest rooms, the resort also offers a daily continental or Asian breakfast.

You can unwind in the hotel’s swimming pool after a day of snorkeling, canoeing, or diving. However, do note that extra charges apply for the said outdoor activities. You can also enjoy a peaceful swim away from the crowd at the resort’s private beach area. If you want to experience the typical Filipino party culture, you can try your hand at karaoke during your stay. I highly recommend getting to experience this, as Filipinos love to sing.
