Our list of things to do is reducing slowly but not without extreme demands on our psychic energies. The reason for us being on Mactan Island, just a 40 minute drive from downtown Cebu City, is to give Ivy immediate access to her advocate and the court system. Our long laid plans, agreed with the advocate, had Ivy and the advocate meeting last …
Ankunft im Blue Water Resort, Malapascua
The one thing I will take away with me is the impeccable service that this resort exhibits. Their attention to detail for your needs is tremendous. Butlers Angelo and Raffy go all out to make your stay so welcoming. Cold towels and cocktails welcome you. Sweet treats will delight you every night.

... every couple minutes to pick up/drop people off. I arrived back at the North Bus Terminal and caught a cab down to my hotel: Hotel Pier Cuatro. It was a nice little hotel directly across the street from the Ports, and about a 3 minute cab ride to SM Mall.

How has this hotel rated in the past?
This resort falls short of being altogether sophisticated but depending on the room made available by the booking clerk - the room initially offered us was tired, poorly located and thoroughly uninspiring - the accommodation can be pleasant enough at an acceptable price or somewhat better at a high price. The gardens and new swimming pool are delightful, as is the beach facing the lagoon. A quiet drink at the lagoon bar to the accompaniment of live music makes for a pleasant, dreamy afternoon. The restaurant is more utilitarian than discreet but it "gets the job done". A shortcoming is the lack of immediate access to ocean water deep enough for swimming; the lagoon is shallow - good for kiddies but frustrating for adults wanting to exercise. There are, of course, boat excursions available but if taken from the hotel, they are expensive; if travelers choose, as we did, to negotiate boat trips with enterprising outsiders who seem to wangle entrance to hotel premises, they should be careful to avoid unmentioned add-on charges and unforeseen complications.
