I will be there for a few days at the end of September (Chusok Break). I have booked my flights but I am having trouble deciding where to stay.

I am a female going alone and hoping for something very near to or on the beach.
I plan on reading, relaxing, getting a massage and little else.
I would like to avoid any place with too many kids or too many adults partying (nothing wrong with either, just not the atmosphere I am in search of).
I guesss 100 USD a night would be the max I feel like spending. I have looked at quite a few places and some that sound great are booked.

I would love any recommendations for accommodations or anything else for that matter.

Flight to TAG and out of Cebu on the return changing planes in Manilla for both.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Alona Tropical for your hotel.
Fan rooms on the beach are nice enough.
Air-con rooms about 25 meters back (2nd row).
Unless there is a wedding at the resort that day things are pretty quiet and laid back.

Unless you want the deluxe with everything room you can expect to pay from $30-50.

The fan room is right on the sand and about (depending on the tide) 30 meters from the water.

Transportation from TAG to the beach should run you 300 pesos for your own taxi (meter + 50%).

Thanks Tom. I have just sent an email request. It looks perfect. Hopefully they have an available room.
