Great family orientated place, myself and 2 friends stayed at fat Jimmys over Christmas 2011/2012 and had a great stay...
Ivone was great, got us breakfast every morning and it was included in the price all for like £4 a night....couldnt ask for better. Plus it was great being able to watch a nice happy filipino family celebrate their Christmas eve.. Was quite heart warming considering my friends and I were spending Christmas away from our own families.
Location is just slightly behind all the main stuff on station too, so if any other person complains about it, well my advice, get off your arse and walk less than 5 mins and you'l be rewarded with that white sandy beach.
Granted tis probably is not the best location for the slightly older or those with walking disabilities as the path to the beach is quite narrow and often crowded with passing bikes.
Only negative was the inital greeting as we got off the pedicab thing as there was loads of begging children near the entrance which can be very off putting.

It is regulated by the government so there is no competition, all of the dive shops must charge the same rates. This island boasts an array of dive sites including very healthy reefs, walls, ship and plane wrecks. Unfortunately visibility sometimes drops to only about 10 meters and right now there are a ...
... We no longer stay there so we go up again, and decided to swim to the infinity pool. ALong the passage, you can found the mini zoo. They have different animals there, but not that wild. Some of them are, rabbits, crabitat, monkey, eagle, heron, turtle, guneia pigs and many more.
... Wifi, so i decide to go for a little walkies to get something to eat!
Note to oneself - Next time i get hungry drunk , just go to sleep!! Here's why.......
2 more beers for the walk i go into a place and come out with a 18" thick crust italian pizza and two cokes, and now we have eaten the whole lot and ready to explode!! i had to get the biggest one to impress Miss K.
So now i have come up with my least favourite 5 things here ...
... with stalls of every kind (ie food, gifts, toys, drinks etc etc), while really colourful balloon sellers sold dolphins, dinosaurs and dollies to absolutely delighted kiddies, all dressed in their Sunday best. This was a real highlight, people watching, as friendly Filipinos are just a the nicest, affable folk.
A walk on to Intramuros followed, where the last vestiges of pre-war Manilan colonialism can be appreciated. A ...
