... Alo island) it was pretty good, big room, nice big balcony, but with out electricity it was hot... Very hot! It did have a great family run vibe, no menu just if you want dinner you eat what they eat and when they eat, a honesty system for drinks and a cat that looked like Hitler. After checking in and unloading we went straight out to snorkel and literally within a minute and only a few metres out to sea we spotted our first turtle! And it was huge! We got so ...
After Boracay, we flew directly to Dumegette in Southern Negros. We immediately left the city, taking a really long trike ride to Malatapay Beach. Although only 28 km from the airport, the trike drove between 10-15 km an hour, so it was slow going. From there, we took a public bangka (the stereotypical boat of the Philippines which we've used numerous times now) across the water to Apo Island. This ride was again slow. We could see the island, but ...
... the main road, but it would be hard to get bored in this place with the countless dive sites a short boat ride away, the pool, book exchange, board games and happy hour from 5-7 which the owners always attend.

The morning we left the resort, I was up early to go and check out this muck and I was so glad, it ...
... Truly basic shed type room, it fitted a double bed and a small bathroom with just enough aisle space to access the door which cannot even be opened fully. 250 php a night with free music from the waves lapping at the beach. At this point, I only had a paltry biscuit for the entire day which probably explained the temporary non-movement of my bowels.

The resort it self is beautiful, well maintained gardens, nice infinity pool, The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff are friendly. My only complain is the food way head over hills over priced. I don't mind paying for expensive food as long as its worth it, unfortunately there's nothing special about their food.
