Modern Peak Antipolo and Panciteria Lido

After the chaos of Cristna Villas resort last year, we wanted a place where we could truly relax and so I found some new places in Antipolo. My first choice was actually another place but it didn't really encourage bringing kids 10 years old and below. Good thing i found Modern Peak. I just contacted them and made a 50% deposit and we were all set.

 First we heard mass at the Antipolo church and bought our usual stock of cashews
 then we had lunch at Savory.  Too bad Alex's parents had work so we decide we'd be Alex's babysitters. Modern Peak is inside a private subdivisoon and there aren't many signs so we got a little lost getting there. It really started as a rest house for the owner's family but they decided to open their doors to the public.
 We got 2 standard suites for P2,000 each.  Each room was good for 2 people with free breakfast.  Each room had a TV with lots of high definition cable channels, access to free wifi, magazines, toiletries and en suite bathroom.
 They also have family rooms for 4 people at P4,500 and dorm rooms for P5,400 for 6 people.
 On hindsight, I might get the family room next time because the rooms and beds are bigger. The standard room's beds are so narrow I was afriad I'd fall off!
 The only other downside of our room was that there were no windows. Granted, there wasn't much of a view as we were surrounded by other homes, but a window to the outside world would be welcome if you're a bit claustrophobic. I think only the deluxe rooms had windows.
 The interiors are lovely and the staff are so attentive. Water is free, you just have to ask.
 The best part of place was their pool! We had it all to ourselves! They also have very posh shower areas near their resto. And the gracious owner said the water is not treated with chlorine so it doesn't smell or sting the yes.
 Her daughter is also the chef of the restaurant so we had salmon sinigang and grilled pork.
 We promised we'd come back for her specialty, the buttered chicken.
 For brekafast, we had a thick slice of ham and egg. We then went swimming till noon. There was a pipe that burst so we didn't have water up in our rooms. Our host generously offered the vacant rooms on the first floor which still had water. Top notch service!

 For lunch we tried out Panciteria Lido
 We had the Ho to tay, (P220) which was good
 Chami (solo size P130) this was ok, but it wasn't savory-sweet like the one in Lucena
 Coco-Mango Jello cooler (P65) It was refreshing but mom didn't like the coconut milk
 Their specialty: pugon roasted asado (P285) This was just ok.  But the serving size wasn;t enough for 4 hungry adults so we also ordered
steamed fish fillet with soy (P255) which was healthy but kinda balnd.
