After leaving Cebu City a bit disapointed (both the city and the hotel we stayed it sucked) we didn't expect much from Panagsama Beach and this resort. But when we got there it turned out to be the best choice we made so far!
We rented the 'family cottage' for only 1500 pesos per night. The cottage was beautiful, had a nice balcony and a great view of the garden. The airconditioning was a split unit, which means that is doesn't make any noise inside. The bathroom was simple, but clean and the hot shower worked fine.
The best thing about this place, however, were the restaurant and the people who worked at the resort. During our 5 day-stay we ate breakfast, lunch and dinner at the cosy restaurant next to the cottages and the garden. The fish and meat from the grill were superb, and they also have a great choice of Mexican food like burrito's and enchiladas.
If you want to go out just ask someone and they will provide all the help you need (motorbike, massage, snorkling or diving trips). We compared prices with some other people in the village, but they were just the same as at the resort.
All in all: the best value for money at Panagsama Beach. It made our stay unforgettable!
