Resort de Alberto Hotel mini-review I stayed at this hotel for three nights earlier this year.  My purpose was to visit Medina, Misamis Oriental.

This place is good if you want to stay close to the Municipal Hall of Medina, but also just one motorsikad away from the Duca White Beach, and Medina's Alibuag Cold Spring.
Rates are slightly above average compared to other options at 2000-3000 Php (40-60 USD).  They serve free plated "silog" breakfast to their hotel guests.

HOW TO GET TO MEDINA, MISAMIS ORIENTAL
I know of three ways to get to Medina, Misamis Oriental:
via Cagayan de Oro City Misamis Oriental by busvia Camiguin by barge and busvia Butuan by bus
I am most familiar with the route via Cagayan de Oro City, which is 2-3 hours away by bus.

Choose the "Portulin" Medina bus stop near Duka Bay resort.  This is the quickest way to go to the beach area. Most bus conductors know this bus stop, too.  But, if you happen to accidentally find yourself at the other bus stop, Fiesta Brand in Cabug, do not panic.  Take the next tip below.
