Cebu/Bohol - where to stay, how to see Chocolate Hills

We'll be flying into Cebu (from Hong Kong) on a Friday evening and leaving Sunday night. We'd like to go to Bohol to see the tarsiers and chocolate hills on Saturday, and then spend Sunday at the beach (hopefully get a late check out or access to showers or something at hotel). Should we stay on Mactan Island (closer to airport) or Panglao (closer to Bohol)? I'm thinking it might be best to stay on Mactan since it's closer to the airport and we won't be worried on Sunday about making our flight. If we stay on Mactan, what's the best way to do our sightseeing on Bohol - hire a tour company or go it on our own? Any other directions/advice on how to see the sights (those I mentioned or others you recommend) on our own would be much appreciated!

As for hotel budget, the Shangri-La on Mactan seems to be cheaper than Shangri-La hotels usually are - is it worth splurging a bit? Otherwise, while we're willing to spend US$200/night (give or take) we wouldn't mind spending less if there's another good option out there.

Thanks!
