bohol trip - day 1, part 3 of 3

been busy and lazy the past few days so i am just updating this post now...

we arrived at our resort - bohol divers resort - at past 4pm and i must admit i was surprised to see that the place is very nice, not quite what i expected at all! i was actually thinking that the place is a bit rundown and may kapangitan, because we like only paid 15,200 for 4D/3N stay plus the tours (so its just 5k plus per head).

according to them, bohol divers resort is the biggest resort in alona beach, they have 2 swimming pools, from the photo above you can see the La Residencia suite they have which is good for families, we thought of getting the Villa room because its big and beach front but then chose the Chateau room because of the water dispenser and they claim that it has the nicest room since it is fairly new.

we stayed at the newly built chateau and i really liked the place, as in. one thing i didnt like in this resort is that they dont have telephones inside the room and if in case you need something you have to go to the reception area, which is why i recommend you stay at the chateau since the reception area is just downstairs

here's their lounge area just in front of the reception desk, you can see the beach from here too. our room is upstairs with a window to see the beach. we're really happy with the service and the staff are very accommodating,

a two double bed, with aircon, tv, ref, and a water dispenser... i have to emphasize the dispenser because i've mentioned before we're traveling on a budget, and the water dispense is very important to us because and we have our baon for our breakfast like sandwiches, cup noodles, and of course coffee! =) (oh yeah, takot kaming magutom noh!)

since there were 3 of us and we only have 2 beds, it was decided that every night we'll do a rotation who's going to sleep in one bed alone, i slept alone on our 2nd night :)

if you're planning to go to Bohol, i recommend you contact Tata Rabe, she'll give you the best deal depending on your budget. her email address is tatarabe@yahoo.com

after settling down and taking a shower we immediately proceed to the beach, a mere 2-3 minute walk from our room, and i was soooo enthralled when i see this scene, sorry the photo doesnt give justice how beautiful the beach is. the water is sooo blue (feels and looks like the water in a swimming pool).

it feels like there is no horizon at all! the blue water reflects the blueness of the sky, its amazing! if not for the bancas it would be really difficult to differentiate the water from the sky.

of course we had picture taking, and im telling you the photos we had looked fake! it seems that we just plastered our face and body in the photos and that the background aint real =)

sorry cant share our photos, censored and horror ang dating hehehehe

simply beautiful. i love sunsets (if you happen to frequent my photoblog, you'll know that my favorite photo subject is the sunset)

after a dip in the water and when it started to get dark and the water becoming chilly, we continued our swim in the pool, stayed a bit then after our growling stomachs protested we decided to go our room and change.

we're thinking of exploring the place and look for a place to dine but then we're already tired and decided to just try restaurant of bohol divers resort, and we didnt get disappointed. the food is great and affordable too.

sorry no photos of the food (PG kami eh hehehe) but i have a photo of their table, aint this table cool?

after dinner, we just head back to our room and recap the days events, transferred the photos and reviewed our pictures (hehehe mga adik). after checking out the photos we had drink in our room (my special mix - san mig light with sprite, parang shandy sya, you should try it) we bought beer earlier from a mall in tagbiliran city.

one thing that surprised me at bohol is the lack of night life, i was expecting the night life to be like in boracay but its different here, at 10pm the whole town seems already asleep. and the bars here aint loud, you have to be five steps away from the bar to hear their music! no i am not complaining, it's actually a welcome relief to us. purely relaxation here, and even the crowd/guests are nice and not rowdy.

at midnight we decided to call it a night since we have to wake up early next morning since our sea tour was scheduled at 6am.

to be continued....
