The Panglao Regents Park (next to Charts) was only two months old when I stayed there in January 2010. It is not seaside but is only a 7-minute walk to the beach and there are several good restaurants nearby. It is the nicest hotel I have stayed at in the Philippines and was only 1800p/N (I got a free upgrade to a standard deluxe as all the standards were booked). The deluxe is regularly 2200p. All rooms have a balcony or patio with 2 wicker chairs and a table overlooking a beautiful infinity pool. In the room is a comfortable bed with your choice of large or small pillows (the large are only good for watching cable TV in bed; for sleep you need the small pillows), fridge, writing table, 2 bedside tables, excellent closet and cupboard space, an enclosed shower with very hot water and water pressure that you only find at home. The only drawback is that there is no hot water in the bathroom sink.
Avoid ordering any of their happy-hour drinks that contain tequila, as they use the cheapest rotgut tequila I have ever tasted - el hombre, I think; it is undrinkable.More
