Such a nice place. Very private set on a hillside with great views and its own private beach. Amarela Resort is a small place with only 24 rooms and suites but feels much larger. The restaurant is fabulous with a good verity of dishes. It has snorkeling gear, kayaks, ping pong, darts and a small art gallery. You can lounge at the pool or take a stroll on the beach its up to you. This place really takes care of you. Visit the gift shop too! It is away from Alona Beach so you need a tricycle to get back and forth if you want to go there. The wonderful staff will arrange a pick-up for you. But to be honest once you get there, there is no reason to leave.

It's not far from the beach has a swimming pool it's very quite and secluded. It was like having my own private villa. I had some friends that I work with come to have a stay for a few days while I was there. I kinda did the leg work on finding the spot for ...
... They were stunning to just sit and look at in the morning light, seemingly going on forever. They are a tourist attraction for everyone who visits this area of the world and as expected, it began to get busy so we packed up our things and headed on to the second main draw for aformentioned visitors to this island, the Tiny Tarsiers of Bohol. Native to the island and only around 10-15 centimetres long, these little critters look like a cross between Yoda and Mogwai ...
... then either wine or water; we find it adds another dimension to congeniality. But that is a detail. Here at Panglao, we are lodged in simple accommodation; it is certainly not a grand house. Ivy can move readily to both the market place and the beach; well, she customarily attends the market while I pass time at the beach. And we eat simply: poached eggs, nuts, sardines, fruit and fish as the day advances, and once the clock strikes 4, (I rarely fail ...
... the water we returned back to our villa to drop off our snorkelling gear. I'd had Champagne on ice and we took it back to toast us and the beautiful sunset on the sand bar - us, sunset, champagne perfect. Engagement dinner was perfect and we were waited on hand and foot and more Champagne too! A day we'll always remember (Oh almost forgot - the spider) The spider on our bedroom wall - I'm not usually too squeamish but this got me and ...
