"In Manila , i was at the..." Philippines Hotel Tip by Carlo-B.

Philippines Hotels: 151 reviews and 208 photos


In Manila , i was at the mandarin Oriental an i found it good. The price was resonable. The best Hotel in manila, so far as i know ist told to be the local 'Shangri-Lah'.

At the see, the is many good restaurants on the different islands. One is famous , very isolate and for people who like a vacation in style ' Ronbinson Crusue' and it is on the island of Boracay (famous among divers). The transport is a beet dificult. At fisrt you fly from manila to Davao, from there there is an about 2 hours trip by boat to Boracay, then again, you have to walk about 40 min. in the jungle.
The other one i know, is the Badian island beach resort, which is on the badian island, at the very proximity of the coast of Cebu. To go thre you flight from manila to cebu with the philippines airline (which is really not bad) and then you have two travel about 3 Hours by car through the whole island til you reach the coast at the sound end of it. then 5 to 10 min. by boat. This resort is little, has got no morethan 20 luxus bungalow (but not expensive ad a small but very nice beach. From there you can dive daily to the best reefs. The cuisine of the badian island Hotel is very reach and i found it very good.
