Not sure that the Lonely Planet were playing at, making this their "Top Pick" but Kukuk's Nest is absolutely vile.

It's cheap - yes, but there is much better accommodation available for less in Cebu.

The rooms are dark - probably for the best as they are completely filthy and infested. No mosquito nets, insects everywhere, rat infestation (one of the little gits chewed a hole through my backpack!), sheets are dirty and have holes chewed in them. The shared bathroom is filthy and falling apart, oh, and there's no running water in the mornings either. And the wifi doesn't work either (although admittedly the other problems took my mind off the lack of wifi)

For an experience like this I'd expect to pay 100 pesos per night, not 400. It's an absolute joke. My skin's crawling just thinking about the place. There are plenty of other options out there, much nicer and cheaper also. Do yourself a favour and stay far far away from this sh1thole. ...

... than 30 minutes slower than my time in Chicago this past September, but still ranked in the top 30% of all racers that day! (had I run the same time I had in Chicago, I'd have been in the top 5%...just behind the Kenyans...an hour behind the Kenyans, to be sure, but still...).

One positive note about the course -- it went past several attractions that I remember from my first visit, including Ft. San ...

... my gf, for a Massage in a very nice couples room with shower. I was happy as i had a very strong looking women to do massage, and for just over an hour layed, and just relaxed.
Overall we both really enjoyed the experience, going to Sandtrap, and looked at the people in the dirty looking pool. We enjoyed the food, Clubhouse sandwich, tea and coke....
When we arrived home, my gf slept for three full ...

... what was the hotel's standard check in time since that was already 4pm. He said sorry and I asked what could he possibly do now since I badly want to have a quick nap. All he answered was "I'm sorry, but there's nothing that we could do about this and all you could do is just wait for the room." He even mentioned that there's a problem with housekeeping which I honestly think he shouldn't have mentioned for the reason that it reflects how lousy the hotel staff operates ...

Oh how I miss fresh bread and Lurpak :(

... a country where there's an assortment of foods made using mango and pineapple. Pineapple pie, mango shakes, mango cake, etc. Somehow the bananas taste much better here, too. Walking into a supermarket, all you smell is mango in the air. Love it!
