Great Villa - continued
July 13, 2015
-Safety: local population is very kind, friendly and helpful (especially in Catarman village where villa is located), of course I assume there can be criminals in some public places like in all other countries but we never saw them; most of local people are more or less fluent in English; supermarkets and ATMs are guarded by police;- Swimming - be sure to have special shoes when swimming because there can be sea-urchins;- Supermarkets/grocery stores: big ones (shopping molls) placed in Tagbilaran only (15 min of driving), but there is small grocery store 80 m on the right by the cement road opened 08.00 am – 09.00 pm, young lady there speaks very good English and is very helpful, you can add money to your local SIM card account (‘to load’) and buy soft drinks, beer, mango, eggs, even washing powder and razor but no fresh chicken/meat; at the same time I guess you can always buy fresh chicken directly from village people; ‘mini-mini’ markets with soft drinks – placed every 50-100 m in the village.In conclusion I would like to say that Daryl Marshal’s villa is ideal for vacation. It has everything you may need during your stay including Internet and Satellite TV (sometimes Cartoon Network is necessary to let parents get some rest from their children :) ). It is suitable for children. Located in very good, beautiful, quiet and save place (Catarman village). Minor disadvantages I mentioned above can be easily eliminated: waiting for too long to get lunch ready – call La Veranda restaurant and order in advance, not that ‘clean’ Alona Beach – go to the left side of the beach where not many boats are at anchor.I definitely will be back next year. .
