We were staying at Muro Ami for a few weeks doing research. We were a huge inconvenience to the staff and the hotel overall but they were always very pleasant and provided anything we needed. Besides being cheap the rooms are comfortable. We were building large wire traps inside so the rooms were large enough for that. We had money and valuable stuff scattered all over our room and nothing was ever stolen from us. They even let us use their cell phones to make calls and let us use our x-ray machine in the rooms and bring sea creatures back for our research.
The food is great. I don't know what everyone is complaining about. It's cheap and fresh and delicious. Especially the soups. The portions are huge and the seafood is fresh. Why wouldn't it be? Yes the service is slow but I've been all over Asia and the service is slow everywhere. If you get sick of the food walk left and eat at the resort next door. Muro Ami has a van that can drive you places like the Chocolate Hills or Tagbilaran and there's a few convenience stores nearby.
Other than the feral dogs (which ignore you so don't be afraid), the low tide, and the large amount of sea urchins (bring water shoes) the beach is fine. If you are unhappy with it then walk a few yards away to another part of the beach.
One issue I did have is that karaoke starts there around 8am but it's kinda funny and I needed to be up that early anyways so I didn't mind that. We've stayed there twice already and are going back in June. As far as I'm concerned this is the only place to stay in Panglao.
