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.

Bogo is just simple one massive one way system, which, until you are used to it is pretty daunting. There are no signs like in Dumaguete, indicating the road is even closed to ...
... when there was a loud bang and the engine finally died for good. Some rod broke. We were dead at sea with nobody around us. We finally saw another bangla far off in the distance and managed to hail it by waving. It towed us to a beautiful fishing village on a little island. From the fishing village another boat towed us to Bantayan. Our hour and a half trip took four hours but we didn't get stranded ...
