So me and my friends (TB Boys) went to Bolinao for an overnight stay and day tour. Basti recommended this resort.
Cocos Beach Resort is probably one of the laidback stays I've ever had.

The whole place is covered by palm trees (where its name probably came from) and has a nice low-tide shoreline in Bolinao.

My Personal Experience
We headed to Bolinao after we had a day tour (mostly morning only) from the Hundred Islands in Alaminos. We took a van ride from a mall in Alaminos to take us straight to Bolinao.
|Signage to Cocos Beach|
Upon our arrival, we had a short walk around the town and visited the Bolinao Church also known as Saint James the Great Parish.
After having snacks and a walk tour, we took a tricycle to bring us to Cocos Beach Resort. We were welcomed by their staff and assisted us to our room.
Most of their rooms are facing beachfront. Rooms are airconditioned and have 2 beds. Each has its own veranda where you can chill or eat at.

The resort is known for having a low-tide beach which kid-friendly and perfect for non-swimmers. The view is spectacular during sunrise and sundown.
For those who prefer a nice swimming spot in Bolinao, I suggest you go to Patar Beach which has enough deep seawater compared to this area. But we prefer solitude since Patar Beach is usually crowded and more expensive to stay at.
And yes, this beach is a good spot for a magnificent sunset viewing!
The room we chose was for P1,500 a night. We checked in the afternoon and checked out at noon.
Here are some of my snaps of the resort:
