Stayed at the Anika Resort - 3 nights upgraded room $210.00 USD

You paid $70 USD, per night, to stay on Bantayan Island? Am I reading that right?

I went up to San Fernando a couple of months ago to the Bali-Hai resort..right on the beach.(nice beaches there) good restaurant...air-con cabin w/kitchenette..nice pool.. ice cold beers and a good selection of liquor.... bought huge fresh shrimp and fish off the beach in early mornings from locals..and had the restaurant prepare them for us... 3 nights for 2600 P..about $17 a night... if we had not had obligations back here we would have stayed right there....lol

I'm just hoping the $210 was the total bill and not per night.  :frantic: :frantic: :frantic:

ate at a place that came as a complete surprise - looked like sh*t from the street - very charming inside. 

Is that this place?

If per night, he had better go back to get a refund.

Well, he paid $100+ to fly there instead of $8 for ground trans and getting to see the nice scenery on the way.

Like the man said,30 mins sure beats 4 hours in a cramped bus plus a good hour of the bus ride is escaping  the Cebu traffic nightmare..Oh and the the hour ferry ride...I think i would rather have  spent all that time instead in Bantayan...

The scenery is different?

Not green wherever you look?

Been on several hours bus trips before  - one tree looks pretty much the same as the next one - flat land or mountains

The outside looks nice enough to me but I don't expect 5 star in the province.

I live in Liloan so the hour of traffic is pre-escaped.  I'd have to do that traffic to get to the airport.
