Iligan City: Mimar's Springway Resort
Last May 19, 2012 Iligan Bloggers Society Inc. celebrated their 1st Anniversary with a Summer Party at Mimar's Springway Resort. Last April 20 and April 22, 2012 me and my family was here to celebrate the birthday of my siblings Nique and Kirk.
After seeing my posts, a reader asked me why am I keep on going there when in fact they have lesser number of swimming pools compared to the other resorts in the area. So here's the reason why.

I was younger. Swimming pools doesn't really destress me, but the springs are. This is the only Resort that didn't entirely altered the cascade or the spring. The natural beauty is still there. The feeling of being communed with nature is still there. And the sound of the cascading water is so relaxing and heavenly.
2. If I were to go there for exercise, I can use the Olympic pool. If I want to relax or destress I'll hit the spring.
3. Although they made swimming pools and have diverted a significant amount of water to the manmade pool, they preserved a part of the nature.

4. This resort doesn't get crowdy most of the time. Majority of the Iliganons and visitors prefer to go somewhere with oversized pools, but for me if I where to tour a visitor around,I would prefer bringing them here. Because the beauty of nature is priceless.
I don't mean to downplay the other resorts, if that's how the post sounds I was just saying what I prefer.
How to Get There?
Ride a Buru-un Line Jeepney from the City Proper and tell the driver to drop you off at Mimars.
Fare: 13.00 (as of May 19, 2012)
Not from Iligan? Here's how to get to Iligan.
Do they serve food? Nope. You have to buy it from outside or bring your outwn food. They do sell some chips, boiled banana (linung-ag na saging hehehe) and sweet potatoe (kamote), soft drinks, water and liquor. And yes they also have Ice cream hehe.
Do they sell swimsuits? Yes, they have shorts, tshirts and floating gears too. Expect it to be a bit pricey compared to buying it from a department store in the City Proper.
