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.

By the way, on day two, the seasoned veteran lady #1 was patiently waiting for the white man who promised to come back on day two. Having shed the other two untrusting capitalist, she had me all to herself and after watching me patiently finish ...
... they are still recovering. 218 deaths, many, funnily enough, in churches as it was a public holiday and the old stone (Catholic/Jesuit) buildings just crumbled. As did the roads. Over a year later not much has recovered and we spent many minutes waiting at roadblocks where non-existent, but waiting to be done, works were happening (or not).
First stop the chocolate hills. Visually impressive, geologically unfathomable. Google them. I did. And I still ...
... iced tea without the tea?' and kept chuckling to himself. This went on through out the whole meal. Loved him lots. We then went to check out Alona beach, which was a slightly bigger resort. The beach was really pretty here and we had drinks by the sea front and a nice walk along the beach, before doing a bit of window shopping an then heading home to freshen up. In the evening we decided we didn't want to go far, just back to our favourite hotel restaurant, but the only ...
... Yes, it is spelled that way, and yes it is a botanical garden, plus mini-zoo, plus art gallery plus spectacular restaurant, covering maybe 20 acres. After an unpromising rough gravel road, and poor directional signing, one enters a very modern gift shop with rather upscale clothing and accessories. There we paid the 300 each admission charge (about $3) and headed out into the garden. The whole place was a puzzlement. Very extensive gardens set out in themes, French garden, ...
