I'm a mid-twenties Brit who fell in love with the Philippines a few years ago. I've been there 10+ times and visited many islands. But Midoro was definitely an unexpected highlight. Taking into account it's proximity to Manila and it's beauty, it's one of the under-rated places in Asia.
As for Sandbar, there is nowhere better. I've been to white beach, sabang, etc and although this place is more expensive than some of the others, it's worth paying the few extra pounds/dollars/pesos/ whatever to make this your base for a few days.
Lovely pool, incredible scenery (in the beachfront room you wake up, look outside and wonder how to make every morning begin so perfectly), good food and friendly staff.
There are more expensive places that won't be as good so I say spoil yourself and head to Sandbar. Take a Kayak (no charge) and row around until you find your own private slice of paradise or play some tennis! Visit Puerto Galera/ Sabang/ White Beach very easily or lounge by the pool. Do what you want, but do it in style.
They even have actual hot water and a real bathtub!! Now that is rare for a cheap place in the Phils!
