Iloilo is known for its famous beaches which mostly are located outside the city. If you wish to have a fun-filled swim-water-fun I am highly suggesting the inland resort El Dorado Water Park!
The El Dorado Waterpark is located inside the Smallville Complex and is also a part of the MO2 complex adjacent to the Westown Hotel along Diversion Road in Mandurriao District.
El Dorado is an ancient South American legend about a lost city of gold which is also the theme of this resort - Pre-Spanish American and Mayan.
El Dorado became one of the most visited waterpark in Iloilo City since it started operations in 2010. It became popular due to its great Mayan temple inspired pools.
Relying on my personal experience with this water park I can also say that is quite maintained and clean.
One good thing about this water park is that you can bring your own food. But if you wish, you can also order from them freshly-cooked foods at reasonable prices. The entrance fee during our visit in 2011 is at Php 100.00 (US$ 2.50) per person.
It also offers fine poolside rooms that you can use for relaxing or overnight stay. Room rate starts at PhP2,000.00 (US$47.00).
Since it is adjacent to the Westown Hotel and the Mo2 bar you can enjoy both fine dining or a drink while listening to one great live band!
We had one great day (and night) with family and friends at the El Dorado Waterpark!
