We are thinking of going to the Philippines next (2006) with a family of 5 (3 children ages 13, 10 and 4). I would love to take them to a resort where it is family friendly and really away from the crowd but would love to stay beach side. Planning to go there for about 2-3 weeks maybe December of January. People have recommended, Boracay but I don't know if this has been exhausted by tourism already.
Also is there danger - I heard of kidnapping happening. My mum warned me to be careful of taking the kids especially if your from overseas.
Any links to holiday resorts would be appreciated.
