    Rates: Daytime – 90 for adults and 60 for children, Night Swimming – 120 for adults and 70 for children, Overnight Swimming – 150 for adults and 90 for children
    My Notes: Rate is affordable, the place is okay but expect it to be swarming with people on weekdays. Flamingoes recently added 3 new pools but these addition has a different entrance and entrance fee.

  • Plaza Del Sol
    Address: #1 Savoy Fairlane Subd, Bgy. Tumana former Concepcion I

    1. Hi. Our church teens frequent Flamingoes all year-round. I haven’t been there myself since the early ’90s (it was still called Igos then I think). Judging on our youth group, I guess it’s great for impromptu outings, no frills.
      I’ve stayed at Villa Ronar. I thought it was strange that renting a room did not qualify us an automatic access to the pool. That didn’t sit well with me.
      I’ll look into the other places. I’ve hardly been anywhere at all this summer. Thanks for the tips.:)

      yes, villa ronar have that rule and their rate is quite high.

      “Thanks for the tips.:)”

      Thanks too for appreciating. 🙂

      Vista al Ciudad has 2 pools. 1 with a slide, goes up to 6 ft, and a kiddie pool. They also have a ballroom, and a playground. Medyo hassle lang pumunta kase pataas yung lugar tsaka, tricycles lang yung pwede sakyan if ever magko-commute ka. Overlooking pala yung place. I’m just not sure how much they are charging now.

      ang igos resort is now the flamingos resort. 🙂
      totally better than the former.

      I’m looking for weddig venue here in Marikina and name it Kapitan Moy, La Veranda Marikina, Water Nymph, Marikina Hotel etc., and the prices are very stiff (high) do you know anything na medyo maganda pero affordable? Thanks

      hi rebecca!

      congratulations in advance for your upcoming wedding.

      i would suggest you try CVJ clubhouse in San Roque or La Tora (i’m not sure if this is the right spelling) Garden located close to the Riverpark, Sta. Elena side. I’m not sure with the rates but I think they’re much cheaper than the ones you mentioned.

      hi ej!

      there are just some private pools located within Marikina. One is Plaza Del Sol (pls see article above for the details), another is located near the Concepcion Dos Barangay Hall. I forgot the name of the resort, it is a thousand more expensive than plaza del sol. There is also a new one located near Fairlane in Nangka, its called Patio de San Juan or San Jose, the pool though is located within the compound where the house of the owners are, I’m not sure about the price. Maybe our readers can help you find other private pools in our city too. Happy Birthday!

      Hi.. i am wondering if anyone knows the rates of water nymph resort. i am planning for a wedding in Pinas but i am working here in Singapore.Their website does not indicate the rates. Thanks!

      hi. venice here, a proud marikeño too.
      i’m looking for a venue perfect for my plans this coming friday or saturday. i wanna surprise my girlfriend, i actually plan to propose given the best chance. could you please suggest a resort or the like that we can spend our whole day(or maybe) with. i prefer a resort but i’m open to other options, as long as we can really enjoy the place. i’ve been to flamingos and that didn’t impress me. i’ve scanned marikina hotel site, almost perfect but but sadly i don’t think i can afford going there. i want to give give my girl a very special day that she’ll never forget in her entire life. i really hope you could help me with this. thanks in advance.

    13. venice says:

      hi mhel..happy to see there’s a site like this. just sent a query, and i’m very excited to hear your response. thanks and warm regards!

    14. cris says:

      edy, water nymph charges 4T for the kiddie pool (3ft deep) w/ access to facilities on that side only….the other pool is 5T (5 ft deep) again, w/ access on that side only. both have bathrooms and rooms that u can rent for a thousand pesos. these rates can cover up to 25 persons. and pay 75 in excess. u bring foods but no cooking inside. no outside catering. the center is a ballroom / reception area. rates varies. but the venue is so nice especially for a wedding… they offers a variety of romantic settings to choose from….thats is good luck and congratulations on your wedding. btw, am not from water nymph. but i’m one of those customers that’s been showed around.

    15. mhel says:


      thanks to cris, he answered your questions very well. thanks cris for your assistance.


      I’ve asked my friends also what would they suggest to you. we have decided it would be Vista Al Ciudad Resort in Parang. The resort is located hig above Parang and has an overlooking view. if you’re options are not limited to Marikina, I would love for you and your girl to see Thunderbird Resort in Binangonan, they have a beautiful pool with an overlooking view and pretty rooms for an overnight stay.

      good luck!

    16. venice says:
