SUNSET SESSION

Club Punta Fuego-18.jpg
Tip #1: Make sure to arrive before the sun sets!

It takes about 60-90 minutes of driving from Manila to Tagaytay, and another 60-90 minutes from Tagaytay to Club Punta Fuego in Nasugbu.

You can choose to allot an optional extra hour stop over for Kainan sa Dalampasigan. Overall, that's a total of 4 hours from Manila with the stop over.

TIP#2: Go on a non-peak day so that you can have the double infinity pool all to yourself during the sunset!

We went on a Friday school day and we got to enjoy this unobstructed view of the sunset from the double infinity pool. :) 

Club Punta Fuego-20.jpg
The kids have their own pool in the Main Club, but it doesn't have a good view of the sunset.

Club Punta Fuego-36.jpg
Tip#3: It's better to enjoy the Nasugbu Sunset with the kids by the Sunset Cove beach below the Main Clubhouse.

Club Punta Fuego-44.jpg
The water is calm and the sand is clean, so it's a great place for babies to take their first steps on the beach. :)

Club Punta Fuego-43.jpg
The beach area is just a bit rocky and shallow, so it's not ideal for swimming. The sand is fine with a grayish brown color when wet.

 

SAN DIEGO RESTAURANT DINNER (MAIN CLUB)

Club Punta Fuego-57.jpg
Tip#4: Don't miss the Filipino-Spanish cuisine and dining under the light of a thousand stars at the San Diego Restaurant in the Main Club.

SAN DIEGO Restaurant Ala Cart Menu: Breakfast | Appetizers | Salad, Pizza | Panini, Pasta Noodles, Vegetables, Paella | Asian Favorites, International Favorites | From the Grill, Kiddie Meal, Desserts

Club Punta Fuego-49.jpg
Croquetas de Bacalao (P305 -15% for members). Bacalao flavored white sauce balls, deep fried.

Order the paella immediately, which they cook upon order, and the croquetas as appetizers while you wait.

Club Punta Fuego-52.jpg
Black Shrimp Tempura (P580 -15% for members). Shrimp deep fried in squid ink tempura batter & served with aioli.

Love the crunch and flavor of this squid ink tempura. 

Club Punta Fuego-61.jpg
Order the sure-hit boneless fried chicken with bacon for the kids.

Club Punta Fuego-62.jpg
✮ Seafood Paella (P900 good for 2  -15% for members)

Tip#5: Make sure to reserve your appetite for the Paella!

The Seafood Paella is worth the wait! Cooked the Spanish way, this is the signature dish of the restaurant named after the San Diego galleon.

Club Punta Fuego-64.jpg
They cook it with a thin layer of rice like they do in Spain, with a good caramelization to give it that crunchy tutong, and comes with generous servings of seafood! 

They use Japanese rice to give it a bigger, more flavorful bite. The shrimp and squid are good, but the mussels were not as fresh as we expected them to be when we dined. 

Club Punta Fuego-77.jpg
TIP #6: Skip the desserts! But if you must, I recommend the Chocolate Eruption with ice cream.

The desserts were just OK. Nothing memorable to write home about, plus eating all those calories isn't really worth it.

 

CASITAS (WHERE TO STAY)

Club Punta Fuego - Day 2-135.jpg
Here's a map to help you get your bearings at the Main Club. #22 is the Double Infinity Pool, #19 is the San Diego Restaurant, and #1-11 are the casitas.

Club Punta Fuego-5.jpg
We stayed in Room #10, which doesn't have a sunset view, but is very near the restaurant and the pool. Reserve this or Room #6 if you can't get the Sunset View Rooms #1-5.

Tip #7: Reserve your massage immediately upon check-in! Since the masseurs don't operate in-house, the last massage slot is only until 8pm. It gets fully booked very quickly.

Club Punta Fuego-6.jpg
Room #10 has a view of the trees covering the neighboring casitas, giving it a more private feel.

Club Punta Fuego-7.jpg
The restroom is maaliwalas, fully functional, and well-maintained even after years of operation.

Club Punta Fuego-9.jpg
It even has Acca Kappa toiletries. Nice! :) 

 

BUFFET BREAKFAST (SAN DIEGO RESTAURANT)

Club Punta Fuego - Day 2-1.jpg
On weekends, they offer a decent buffet Filipino breakfast with tapa, fried fish with egg, and rice.

Club Punta Fuego - Day 2-4.jpg
Unfortunately, the appetizer spread isn't very appetizing. 

Club Punta Fuego - Day 2-6.jpg
Kids have decent interactive breakfast options. 

Club Punta Fuego - Day 2-8.jpg
You can also opt for pandesal and Spanish bread for breakfast.

Club Punta Fuego - Day 2-10.jpg
Better to lower your expectations so you can enjoy the Filipino breakfast.

Club Punta Fuego - Day 2-22.jpg
Enjoy with this relaxing view of the double infinity pool and the bay.

 

PENINSULA DE PUNTA FUEGO ACTIVITIES

Club Punta Fuego-12.jpg
Check out the game room for the kids. The slide is already small for Aidan.

Club Punta Fuego-13.jpg
The air hockey is operational but with a broken scoring system.

Club Punta Fuego-14.jpg
The boys enjoyed the table soccer and ping pong! 

 

LOWER BEACH CLUB

Club Punta Fuego - Day 2-41.jpg
TIP#8: Best to go as early as 9am to the Family Pool at the Lower Beach Club... 

Club Punta Fuego - Day 2-54.jpg...so the kids can have it all to themselves!

Club Punta Fuego - Day 2-48.jpg
This is the beach at the Lower Beach Club, which is rocky and not ideal for swimming, but good for water sports and other activities. :)

Terrazas de Punta Fuego-38.jpg
TIP #9: It's better to reserve your beach time for Terrazas de Punta Fuego, which has nicer sand and better food options. It's located in a separate resort 15 minutes drive from the Main Club and is open from 9am until 6pm.

Club Punta Fuego-24.jpg
It's a good place to play beach volleyball with your barkada.

Club Punta Fuego-23.jpg
Our boys loved playing a competitive 9-hole game of mini-golf!

 

IL JARDINETO (ITALIAN RESTAURANT)

Club Punta Fuego-9.jpg
Il Jardineto is a good brunch option for your second day, located right beside the family pool.

Club Punta Fuego-4.jpg
You can order decent comfort food pastas with prices ranging from P220 (Spaghetti Aglio Oglio) to P357 (Spaghetti Carbonara) with a 15% discount for members.

Check out the Il Jardineto Ala Carte Menu for more details.

Club Punta Fuego-12.jpg
PIZZA BALAYTIGUE (P515 -15% for members). Tomato, mozzarella cheese, shiitake, local pechay, and feta cheese.

The pizzas are a good after-pool snack. I recommend the Pizza Balaytigue, which is like a 2-cheese pizza with mushroom and vegetables.

Club Punta Fuego - Day 2-148.jpg
TIP #10: Attend the 6pm Saturday anticipated mass located at Our Lady of Guadalupe Chapel near the main gate.

Club Punta Fuego - Day 2-149.jpg
The mass is intimate and beautiful, with a mixed crowd of vacationists and Nasugbu locals.

Club Punta Fuego - Day 2-138.jpg
Just follow these 10 Tips and you're sure to have a memorable CLUB PUNTA FUEGO experience. 

Have an awesome summer! :)
