The living room of our Hilton one bedroom suite
The breakfast buffet included in the room rate was truly gargantuan and truly spectacular. It had a traditional hotel breakfast buffet (with made-to-order eggs), supplemented by a Japanese breakfast area, a Chinese breakfast area, a Philippine breakfast area (with delicious garlic rice), a Korean breakfast area, a nod to Spain with a different frittata each day, a fresh fruit area and lots of other goodies. It was breakfast and lunch and then some. One day we tried sikwate, a native hot chocolate that was delicious—not too sweet and intensely chocolatey. The rock melon, papaya, Cebuano mango and the watermelon were all very delicious and sweet. The manager of the restaurant was always there at breakfast. His name was Marcel and he was from Indonesia; he was attentive and charming.
The other thing about the Hilton we liked was the gym. It was large and equipped with new machines. The aerobic machines had TVs too. It had lots of air conditioners and it was always cool. Audre went 3 times in 7 days; Dimitri only once because he felt coldy. Dimitri really liked one of the attendants who showed him how to use some of the machines that were new to us.
And so we decided to go to another island in the Visayas after our week at the Hilton. Off we went to Bohol to a remote part of the island called Anda.Our perch on the grass behind the Hilton man-made beach
