Villa de Mercedes Infinity Pool at Catigan Toril Davao del Sur

villa de mercedes pool davao

While white sand beaches are busy, why not try swimming pool instead? I been through with many resorts and lately I have visited this high class resort which I instantly listed as my another favorite Davao tourist spots and highly recommended resort for you this summer.

We actually intended to go for a house tripping at Villa de Mercedes, located at Toril, Davao City. Thanks to Ma'am Marlene of Moreno Agency. :D And as we go around the subdivision, one of the housing agent told us to check out the swimming pool. As we reached the place, it is really captivating. The beauty of the resort is first class and modern type. Indeed a breath taking place. Actually I though that it is considered as a private resort for Villa de Mercedes home owners but surprisingly they allow outsiders to enjoy the resort for a low price.

Let me first describe the pool. Villa de Mercedes swimming pool is infinity, not typically ideal for diving (if you expected it to be uber deep)  The swimming pool is designed to be a beach like with white sand and shore. There is also a kid's pool.

You can play volleyball behind the benches near the pool and still it's a white sand. You can do sun bathing using the benches on the side.

For food, there is a restaurant near the entrance gate. They serve different delicious meals, pastries, snacks and ice cream. Bringing of foods inside the pool area is not allowed however there's a walking distance cottages outside for free and you can leave your food and things there and lock the cottage when going back to the pool.

You can stay overnight at the cottage if you wish but swimming pool is only open until 11:00PM. Villa de Mercedes swimming pool has a breath taking view during day time and captivating view when night comes. Different lights are all over the place and underwater lights changed to different colors which adds dramatic effect to the place.

How To Get There

I'm sure you will also gonna love this one. Now if you want to enjoy this resort, getting there is very easy. First you need to be in Davao City and then make a reservation to the resort. You can only enter the subdivision if you have access inside or with any Villa de Mercedes agency or if you have a friend who lives in Villa de Mercedes Subdivision.

You are lucky if the agency will offer to tour you and bring you there using their van. If you don't want that, you can take Toril PUJ, stop are Toril proper - exactly in Chowking and take motorcycle to reach the resort. Taxi is also recommended. You may want to get the contact number of taxi or motorcycle drivers to fetch you because no taxi will be there at night.

At the guard house, inform that you have a reservation and give the agency name or your inside contact. In our case, we made this possible through Moreno Agency. You may want to contact them to. They are real estate agency that provides housing tour on Villa de Mercedes and they also entertain people who want's to try the swimming pool.

Entrance Fees

Swimming pool entrance fee is only Php150.00 every weekdays and Php200.00 every weekends and cottage is free. They are very strict with swimming wear. Only silk swim wear are allowed.

Important: Hire a taxi driver to pick you up when you leave at night. Vehicle are hard to catch up when going back.

Updated Entrance Fees Prior 2016

Monday-Friday - Entrance fee (Day and Night Tour) Php150.00
Saturday and Sunday - Entrance fee (Day and Night Tour) Php200.00
The additional was for towel rental.

Hi Lehanemar. I'm sorry but there's no hotel in Villa de Mercedes. The pool is one of their housing amenities which is open to public. Only cottages available, no hotels. :)

Thank you. I was thinking of buying a home at this resort but since they allow anyone in that has P200 I have to say NO! Does not seem all that secure/gated now.

It's indeed a beautiful place to relax. I'm planning on going to this resort around May with my friends. We aren't 18 yet but can we still get a reservation? We're mostly 14 year-olds and we're looking for relaxing inland resorts to bond, since we aren't allowed to leave Davao. I'll wait for your response :)
