I agree ! Sand is very messy and after all many people walk all over it with bare feet !! Ugh !!   I also prefer a beach without water ! We all know what the fish do in the water ! And its got all that gross seaweed in it ! 

So true, DU30 has to close all the sea till the problem solved.

Those are really nice looking resorts, but I'm more into smaller, a little off the beaten path places. My current favorite is the Coral Cay Resort, Siquijor.

My favorite's Coco Grove Beach Resort, also in Siquijor. Great customer service, good food, cold drinks, beachfront, big breakfast, reasonable rate.

I think the Pearl Farm in Davao City is wonderful - but because its so expensive I have never been there. Can one have a favorite if they dont go there ?

https://www.pearlfarmresort.com/

The Pearl Farm searches your bags on arrival because you are not allowed to take any booze or food there [ so they can force you to buy their own terribly overpriced booze and food ! ]

There's a deal you can set up with some boatmen if you just want to be at the beach, not the rooms at Pearl Farm. They can bring you to Malipano Beach for 2k, I think. They'd probably price it higher for you (hehe, sorry.) You can have lunch, drink, swim or do whatever until 4pm or until the tides are still good enough to get you back to the main island.

But if you actually like the Pearl Farm resort. I checked and it's currently at 160USD. Hehe.

I don't need beach and am a budget traveller so I don't need expensive beach resorts. 

But I have stayed at Coral Cay and will be very happy to go back. Especially to stay again in the poolside deluxe room!

For a non beach resort that I have returned to multiple times, it is the Bohol Tropics in Tagbilaran City. Even though it is not on a beach, it is still by the sea though, over looking the bay and Panglao Island. I stay in the Deluxe Horizon Suite with balcony over looking the bay, panglao island and the pool area.

If you want some budget/value for money options for by the sea or on the beach, let me know and I will give info for some of my favourite places.

The post is about a persons favorite beach .

Did you lose the glasses again there old man...:P

The name of the thread is your favorite beach resort. Although it looks like it should have been named your favorite cheap beach resort. 

If a resort chooses to call itself a beach resort, who are we to argue with them. In the Philippines it seems quite normal for a resort to call itself a beach resort as long as it's on or near a shore and there is a beach in close proximity.

Beach: a pebbly or sandy shore...:D

Jamont Hotel, Sipalay Negros.  Decent pool, coffee available early, no beach at the hotel, but several km of 50 m wide beach right across the road (100 feet away) and more close by.  Great place to walk in the mornings.  We have two sons 6 and 7, so kid friendly is a big factor for us.  French crepes and home made pasta priced right at the French owned resto on the beach just couple hundred meters from the hotel.  Ceres terminal across the street, so we'll go by bus in couple weeks.

Presuming you're asking about the Alona comment ..

Sorry can't provide .

1. I've got no idea how to post a link

2. I've read hundreds of various news items on the Boracay situation, and it was mentioned that Boracay is only the beginning and numerous other sites in line .,Alona being #1 . ( I don't save links to everything I read ) ..

Excellent choice, :D for a not on a budget resort. Although, its nice to hang out there and enjoy some amenities, like a massage or the iced coffee.
