TravelPod Member ReviewsIsis Bungalows Panglao
Isis Bungalows are located in a prime position on Panglao Beach. In a more developed global location, the position could scarcely be bought, such is its specialness. As it is, other accommodation establishments stretch either side of Isis with greatly varied attraction and service. The area has all the typical Filipino mix of loveliness and ordinariness. Be that as it may, once inside the grounds of Isis, travellers can relax in a beautifully maintained garden area with immediate access to a wonderful powder beach and a vista of local boats in a scintillating sea with a reef and distant islands beyond. If that view ever begins to pall, retreat can be made to the small but perfectly clean and practical bungalows or the charming little restaurant where good Thai food is served either in a sheltered area or outside under the palms. The price is reasonable, the young people serving are polite and happy and every client who stays here should leave with a lighter heart and happier disposition.

We woke up early to swim with the whale shark and beat the crowd. The time to swim with the whale sharks begins at 6am and ends at 12:30pm. Waking up early was definitely an advantage. There was only 2 groups on the water. My group of 8 and 2 other people from another boat. If you read OSLOB blogs, you know that it gets really crowded later on the day and especially weekends, when the locals from Cebu City comes down for ...
... this is basically because it's the only place where we have a clue what's on the menu. While we wait for our food a big rat comes running in from outside, why do I have a feeling this pizza isn't gonna be great?
The pizza is pretty **** but probably doesn't even come into the bottom 3 I have had in the Philippines. I had swore to not eat one again on this trip but needs must. The rest of the evening was spent watching TV stuff and sitting in the windy lobby on the ...
... mainland Bohol and a car drove us to Alona Beach on Panglao Island. As soon as we got there we could tell this was going to be a relaxing, low-key experience. The road drops you at the beach and you walk the sand path past the small resorts, dive shops and beachside restaurants to get to Alona Vida. This is the kind of place where you can take off your shoes upon arrival and not put them back on until the day you leave. No ...
... agreed. Saffron's chef was featured in many cooking shows and also recently in and International cooking magazine.
The next morning, I woke up with a horrible sinus infection. I guess that midnight swim wasn't the best idea after all! I spent the day in bed, not on the beach then showed up at the resort, to find Jules sick as well! But, that didn't stop me from eating! It was a great chance to try gourmet Filipino food! We ordered ...
... under Andrews weight jumping up and down to Carly Simon probably did little to keep our profile low. Nothing like a good sober karaoke to kick off the day.
We carried on up the road and eventually came to the top and yet another set of steep stairs (is someone really taking the p**s up there) up to the viewing platform. At the top you could see for miles and the hills just looked like 'Tellytubby Land' to me especially the ones that were still green. The bus ...
