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.

... year is leaving our skins bit by bit. Tomorrow we are leaving Lapu Lapu. Travelling into Cebu to take a ferry two hours away to the island of Bohol. There we intend to stay at the somewhat touristy, but tropical Alona Beach. Bohol is home to the chocolate mountains (think supermarioland) and tarsiers , small primates with huge eyes. Until then, we shall enjoy some more San Miguel and pool ...
... their plastic washing up trays: shells, shells and more shells woven into all kinds of useless creations. We had been successful in escaping harrow and hassle for a time but had lurched into a teeming water-borne market and even brought some of the pestering hawkers with us on our boat! I had a lot to learn about fun in the Philippines.
Get us out of here, we demanded of the snoozy captain. Well we are low on diesel, he mumbled, but we could ...
... ethic is unmatched. They are not lazy by any means. They do a job until its complete! Very focused on the goal but because of closed mindedness sometimes are unable to relax... always working
so, I'm still deciding, but really I think I'm going to spend 9 months in the Philippines and 3 months in Thailand for a couple of years since they are only a 3 hour plane ride apart.
meet u at the crossroads peeps!
... street urchins pokign their heads in, giggling and runnign away after seeing this strange white guy that their neighbour brought home :P I spent the morning chatting with Merly and her neighbour Nova Jean, helping make rag patch pads which they sell to a collection man, who takes them off in bundles to the next stage, a home sewing group like Merly and ...
... After collecting a chicken I paused at a busy crossroads where big billboards where erected into the heat, jeepneys and bicycles raced past. There was a street vendors stand bellowing smoke as if to create an enchanting atmosphere on a theatres stage. I really wasn't ready to leave, but I wasn't there for the right reason. I had promised myself to return to Southeast Asia to continue my cultural high. Not sure if I will ever rid my system of it's ...
