Zambales is one of the more popular weekend destinations for city dwellers looking to escape the concrete jungle. It boasts natural attractions in the form of beautiful beaches and scenic mountains. Entire families, barkadas, and couples could find a myriad of things to do and beautiful resorts and beach houses to stay at. The province is also easily accessible being a mere 3-4 hour drive from Metro Manila. And if you’re looking for the best place to stay, Sundowners Zambales might just be the perfect spot for you.

The pictures probably won’t do it justice. Sundowners Zambales is a beachfront resort in Purok 5 Barangay Danacbunga, Botolan Zambales.

Sundowners has spacious villas, grand pools, and a strip of beach for all guests to enjoy. The 2-hectare resort is actually the second branch of the Sundowners Vacation Villas group; the first is in Bolinao, Pangasinan.
