The resort is beautiful; however, the rooms are slightly deceiving. They have not been renovated for some time and could be cleaner. The hotel is currently under construction as they have added some new rooms. The hallways are VERY noisy with people talking and doors slamming. So, if you plan to sleep later than 6:30 or 7am, you may not want to stay here. The rooms/hallways give a "hostel" type feeling. However, the hotel is safe, secure, and in an excellent location...right on the beach and just down from many restaurants, shopping, etc. The swimming pool is small, but really clean and nice. Internet is only available in the restaurant/pool area. The staff are very friendly; however, the service is not exceptional. The breakfast is the same almost everyday and not worth bragging about. There are many other restaurants around, so not an issue. We would definately stay here again as it is one of the nicest hotels for it's price range.

I cleaned two pans until i finally was happy i had two good pots to cook with. I went to collect my girlfriend from Bogo some ...
... you can find a variety of accommodations that ranges from the cheap to the steep. The choices include cottages, guest houses, and resorts bearing such exotic names as Budyong, Kota, Marlin, Hoyohoy, to name a few.
While strolling in the island's white-sand stretches, I noticed some tourists, who were probably on a tight budget, pitching their tents along the beach, renting the area for the duration of their stay in the ...
