Our penchant for diving took us to Victory Beach Resort. Walk in, and to the right is the dive shop with friendly people - who took us wreck diving, on the left is a bar, again with friendly folk - who served us San Migs and some local munchies to nibble. Walk further and you pass by an open restaurant - the buffet in the evenings is out of a thriller novel - clams, scary-looking clams, massive fish staring at you from the tray, some tasty soup, curried pork.... The entrance to the hotel rooms - is after you've dropped pieces of your heart on the way in. A decent reception and a stairway to rooms is what you see. We stayed in the family room. It was clean, had a mini bar, air conditioning, and a good bathroom. You can get a good sleep here when you need it.
Okay, get out of the room, have beer at the bar where you meet fellow backpackers, then step out and turn right... walk to Cocomangas for some groovy music, The Summer Place for some dance music, Epic for commercial dance music, and my favorite Exit bar. Along the way, street food, live music on the beach, the musical cacophony... you keep soaking it in. And when you want some rest, hop back to Victory Beach Resort. All in all, Victory is one hell of a place to stay, eat and partyyy.
Note: My description is from the eye of a backpacker, not from a prim and proper tourist.
