We chose to stay for 10 days in this little paradise in Southern Leyte for our honeymoon. Looking for a mixture of diving and relaxing, I have to say it was fantastic. We dived most days in the morning with a partner dive operator (Peter's) and were ferried to and from the dive shop to allow us to do so at no extra charge. Our room in the tower was fantastic, and the food excellent. By far the best food we had during our stay in the Philippines. I would thoroughly recommend the half-board option, though don't arrive with tight fitting clothes as you will be fed so much you may very well need an extra hole in your belt by the time you leave!
All in all the place was lovely, the service was impeccable and the whale-shark / snorkelling trip absolutely awesome. I would definately recommend doing the whale shark trip with David, enjoying the fantastic BBQ lunch and not being in amongst a huge crowd when the other dive operators all turn up at once.
All in all, excellent. Thanks David, Delia and Castle's very own resident princess Nikka.
