    Arrived Dumagute on Saturday 20th August 2011 and had booked 10 nights at the Monarch Sands Beach Resort in Siaton - not the best choice. So left and booked into a Hotel close to the boulevard.
    Anyone any ideas how to fill my remaining days following on from my disappointment with Monarch Sands?

    Cheers

    Mike

    Hi Mike, sorry to hear that,
    anyway that shouldn't be that hard to fill them, there is Silliman founders week with a lot of stuff going on in the city and a lot of partying in the evening.

    make a snorkel trip to Apo Island, rent a bike to the waterfalls and twinlakes,
    enjoy the reggae night at hayahay and and and

    cheers

    Rhoody

    Mike, if you want to pamper yourself for a couple of days, stay at the Atmosphere Resort and Spa. It is expensive but very nice, great food and I hear the new spa is a treat. Nice pool with bar close by.

    The last time I drifted in to Monarch Sands, there was a blazing row and shouting match going on between the owner and his wife. I quickly drifted out again and went round to the Tongo Sail Inn at Tambobo Bay. Very rustic, but peace and tranquility, a help-yourself honesty bar, and Pilar is a fantastic homely cook, with fish and chips to die for, and probably ( I'm no expert ) the best home made pizza on the island.

    What isn't fair ????? I know that Pilar buys in the ingredients and then prepares all the meals in her kitchen. Nothing is bought in and then rehashed, everything is home prepared, home made and home cooked. So I've described her cooking as homely, and her as a homely cook.

    What point is it that your making ??

    Roger, I think he is picking up on your use of the word, "homely", as in butt ugly. Maybe homey or whatever the UK word is what you probably meant.
