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.

... city in the Philippines, which I spent the grand total of 45 minutes in while I was inside a taxi that took me to another ferry terminal. I then caught another ferry (this one was much larger!) from Cebu to the main city on Bohol called Tagbilaran. From Tagbilaran I hired another tricycle which eventually brought me to my guesthouse on Panglao island! Whew! I left my hostel in Boracay at 7:30am and arrived at my guesthouse on Panglao at 5:00pm but everything ...
... midnightWe took the ferry departing at 12.00 and it took us more than 3 hours to get to Tagbilaran. We arrived at the port of Tagbilaran at 15.30. There were a lot of tricycles waiting to take us wherever we needed. They offered to take us straight to Alona Beach (where we actually wanted to go) for PHP 200 but we wanted to take a jeepney so one of them offered to give us a lift for PHP 50 per person, but we negotiated and he finally agreed to take us for PHP 25 per person. Later ...
... special and sacred church to the Filipinos, we never would have found it on our own as it was in the middle of nowhere! It was really good to be shown around be local people who could explain everything to us and our driver and his wife were obviously very devout Catholics and I could tell the church meant a lot to them. We saw wheel chairs and crutches inside big glass frames, our driver told us that these were from people who had prayed to 'Mama Mary', as he called her and been ...
... thought it was great, but that feeling soon wore thin. Alternatively, we found a resort that served great food on the other side of the island, and while it was still cloudy and rainy, it was not windy, therefore we spent a couple of afternoons there.
We went one day up the 'mountain' (about 500m) in search of a well known waterfall. It was a climb down to the waterfall of 135 cobbled steps. (to my gym instructors - take ...
... all of which was pretty awful, greasy, tasteless and cold...and the final aspect of the local children performing traditional song and dance on the riverbank was just a little sad. The children clearly had no interest in being there, no interest in who they were performing to and as such no recollection of half the dance moves or words to their songs and just looked bored out of their minds. I felt a bit sorry for them more than fascinated. Well as you can expect ...
