    There are plenty of hotels in and around Dumaguete that are nice to stay at and can arrange for your whale/dolphin tour. They will provide transportation to and from and some also offer a lunch as part of the price. When you email the hotel inquire, you might be pleasantly surprised.

    The part of the slogan they forgot to print

    It is more fun in the Philippines, but sometimes it is just not easy or convenient.

    La Planta

    I have stayed there several times as is it the best of your limited options in Bais. The building is nice, the pool is great, the staff and owners are wonderful, but the rooms leave a lot to be desired. They have no matrimonial rooms available. Every room has two twin beds. And in my experience, those are so uncomfortable, I had to put the mattress on the floor.

    Yep, it is actually owned by some of my family. The La Planta sits where the old power plant of Bais used to be (hence the name, La Planta). It is nice and quiet, wouldn't call it 4 or 5 star, but usually clean and not busy. They have a nice pool for cooling off. Restaurant is convenient, but we have found that they don't usually have available everything that is offered in their menu, but such is life in the Philippines!! You must also take one of the whale/dolphin watching excursions while there. Enjoy your visit!!
