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.

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 ...
... we were joined in the room by quite an alarming array of creatures. As you might expect a tree house attracts a few rogue traders, mainly geckos, but one night was special:
A lovely meal after a beautiful sunset, a few rums and it was time to hit the sack. We headed back to the room and as the light was turned on, Lucy gasped and jumped back...right next to the light switch was a medium sized gecko...not so much of a problem but this one had a huge cockroach in it's ...

Thailand - Things I like about the country
Infrastructure - The transportation systems are good! of course not exactly up to American standards but certainly higher than most 3rd world countries. I suppose this is because of the amount of tourist they get here.. The living conditions, accommodations, even going through the immigration process is a 'breeze' unlike other '3rd world countries' Thais are ...
... to sleep in the night!!
First impression of Cebu? Poor! It was a huge place ,and not having a clue where to go or what to do i ask a friendly looking guy stood next to me for any advice whilst we docked.
Ten minutes later 'Michael' is walking with us to catch a 'jeepney' ( a cross between a bus and a jeep used as local taxis that do fixed routes from place to place, all with weird holy names and unique decoration) ,towards the ...
... the second time. Along with my lovely and thoroughly missed friend Denise, we rode them into the heart of Cebu with Izzie perched on the back seat filming. Mainly herself making noises. Stopping along the way to visit beautiful white churches with huge murals on their ceilings. Cartoon like statues of spanish influenced figures that people would stick their heads underneath the clothing of to pray. And most interestingly, a tank with jet black catfish and long ...
