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. ...

... no private cabin. We leave tomorrow, that's all I will say.

The Philippines are beautiful in terms of beaches, but for those looking for a bit more, there really doesn't seem to be anything much. Not only that it doesn't seem to be that easy to travel around. You either take a very long ferry (they don't necessarily run every day) or you pay for a flight, which can be up to 50 pounds, which is not possible if you are on a budget. ...

... the canopy looking down into a beautiful winding river, dotted with bright white breaks as the water rushed over hidden rocks. I managed to tie my Canon 60D to my wrist and record the beautiful river and it's encroaching green jungle as I speed over them attached by 8 thin wires!

Later that day we worked our way over to Panglao, famous for it's perfect beaches. We headed for Alona beach. The sand was beautifully soft, dotted with coconut trees and Filipino men selling ...
