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.

... more tomorrow... 3/6...Kay last night was not a good night sleep. The bed was rock hard and we woke up sweating as the power had gone out. B was not impressed. Went to go and get a refund on our second night that we had booked. They gave us back a 1000 instead of 1400. Managed to find Joe on the road and he helped us to get a taxi to go to the bus station. Must have been an hour till we finally got one. Finally on the road to the station after sitting in loads of traffic, got there at ...
... water around to give you a good laugh. If you have ever attended a pool party, then you know how much fun it can be, and it is suitable for a wide range of people. Be it teenagers looking for a place to catch up with their friends, or a group of people who work together and are having a small get together - you can be sure that the scene at the pool side is an excellent place to be at, regardless of who you are.

... of your choice. Then there is a large BBQ pit in the center of the square with boys/men who grill the meat for you. I ended up picking stuffed squid and red sausage, and got one ball of rice wrapped in a banana leaf. THEN they bring you plastic gloves because you are about to eat them all with your hands! There were 2 "lady-boys" at the next table who were absolutely hysterical. Oh what a night we had. That was a trip! Dinner = 100 php ($2.50) An unforgettable experience = ...
... you would want to leave a dog overnight … unless you wanted a call from the RSPCA. It would seem I'm over staying in budget accommodation!
Since the room was not somewhere you would want to spend any more time than necessary, we headed out to the Golden Arches for a "cheer Ken up" meal. We spent the rest of the day emailing from a coffee shop, and trying to book up ...

I would NOT stay at this hotel again, and i certainly won't recommend it to my friends or family. When you book a room they require a 50% deposit, which incurs a fee when you pay at the bank, so although the room is 950php its then 36php more expensive, 986php. Then they require a scanned copy of the receipt to prove you have paid . . . . . . gosh its a pain ! . . . . There ...
