Our stay with Alona Kew was pleasurable. Staff are attentive and friendly. The location is near the beach.

Very nice. Location was close to the beach.
Location. Staff were courteous and accommodating. Food was great.
It was awesome. Pool was great and very relaxing. Our room was o.k. However, it was quaint. TV was old, also the phone line.

Disappointing, very poor service
It is near seafront
Staff was not helpful at all in our hotel transfer, our expected time of arrival at the port of Tagbilaran was 830pm and they refused at first to provide pick up despite our offers that we would pay for the costs. It was only after a long debate that they acceded, hardly the courteous service we were expecting from a tourism hotel

Crappy hotel room.
Location, friendly staff, access to the beach
Hotel needs to provide more service. I.e. Internet access in the room, hair dryer, better bed, linen & towels.

horrifying service in an overpriced
the one friendly staff member
when we stepped out of our taxi into the dusty, neglected cigarette strewn courtyard..i knew we were home. this was further made obvious by the door staff's complete disinterest in helping us. they actually glared at if staying there was in some way inconveniencing them. "perhaps i'm being too sensitive"...i thought. we then met the front desk staff who instantly made the door staff seem like shining examples of humanity. perhaps it was because 5 of them were behind the desk and only one was working. it may also have been the way they frowned and muttered when we walked in. it might also have been them shouting at and making fun of a large party of korean guests. we got to watch all this in the 15 minutes it took them to even greet or assist us. we were immediately informed that we'd have no internet because had all the limited slots taken. we informed the hotel that we'd called ahead to confirm internet access because we were on a business trip and had been assured it was no issue. we were then told absolutely not by an amazingly rude front desk supervisor. it took everything we could do not to leave that second. this resulted in a front desk employee following us in secret to give us his own internet access information so we could work at the hotel. horrifying. the price alona kew charges for dirty bug infested rooms is also an insult. this is compounded by the fact that we've recently stayed elsewhere in panglao for 1/3 the price and received the sort of service we had expected at the alona kew. summary- terrible staff, filthy and bug infested overpriced tourist trap that could absolutely care less about you as a customer.

Good location, but dont choose this room
The pool, the loaction, the receptionist
Great location a short walk onto the beach or through the hotel to restaurants and bars. However I read a review saying don't get a cottage outside the main hotel and that they had a cockroach. My room was the same and in the first 10 minutes killed my first cockroach. If you're from UK they give you the jitters. Rooms look cool on the outside but inside a small AC is going flat-out, there's no safe in the room, and bathroom is well past its best. Big old chunky TV has limited channels. It's 2013! Receptionist was very cute though and the pool is great, but I would only have a room in the main hotel.
