The hotels that I encountered on Luzon, Negros, Masbate and Bohol were of very good quality, very good value and with staff falling over themselves to assist the visitor. The Camsur Watersports complex for example in Luzon, south east of Manila is a point in case. It is specially catering for people interested in water sports such as surfing and water-skiing which is popular in this part of te world. There are numerous islands and Globe At One can direct you to the best water sport facilities.
Manila boasts many fine hotels, Globe at One stayed at the Celestine Citadel Hotel in the trendy Ermita neighbourhood in Manila, very unassuming, spotless and very friendly staff as Filipinos tend to be.
On the island of Masbate which isn’t a tourist hotspot, accommodation although not having a vast selection will be comfortable as the best places will be sourced for islands off the beaten track.
