Noisy, bad location and relatively expensive
The room we stayed in was really noisy. Partly because of loads of traffic just outside, starting in the early morning (6 am or so), and because of the incredibly loud aircon. The prices are overall quite high. Just go to the other restaurants around, they have better food and better price than the on site "art café".
Breakfast is very sparse, you don't even get juice! And you need to tell them to fill up the breadbasket and fruit all the time otherwise there's nothing out.
The staff is friendly and the massage is good though.

nice hotel with great smile
great first impression, nice European feel.
note: ask for hair dryer at the office before it's closed.
walk to the beach (10min) gets boring after couple days.
will choose a hotel closer to the beach next time.
but overall the stay was great.

Quite place, good for relaxing
Walking distance to the beach, peaceful and good to take rest
1. Dont book official tour to island or Bohol city from travel agent, you can just do some negotiation when you are there at the beach, offer is much cheaper
2. If you do not want to get headache, get away from those restaurants near each other with live band!
Go to rooftop and enjoy the night with sky moon and stars
go to watch dolphine in the morning with virgin island
can take bohol city tour in the same day

Nice hotel, bad location, extra charges
clean hotel, friendly staff
This hotel was very small and 10mins from the beach. The rooms weren't very comfortable. The water coming from the shower smelled terrible, but I assume it's because it's an Eco friendly hotel.
However, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was also very good, but that's all that is really available to eat at the cafe.

lovely hotel as home feeling
tropical decoration, outside the crowded beach
We lived in Charts for 2 nights and the hotel staffs are friendly and helpful. The room is full of tropical color and the pool outside the room is really a lovely view. Not too far from the beach and the distance is good for blocking out all the noisy and crowded. But what needs to be improved is the room service. The towels will not be replaced every 3 days according to the rules which makes a little inconvenient. Sometimes the water pressure is not stable at night.
there is an extraordinary italian restaurant near Charts, outside the front door turn left around 500 meters. You cant miss it!!! Taste sooooo well!!

A good place to stay in
the surrounding is really beautiful
I like their breakfast. The coffee, bread and homemade jam are really delicious. The mini bar is really convenient with a reasonable price (close to the price in restaurants).
Overall, this place is clean, cozy, and not far from the beach(about 10 minute walk). I would recommend my friends to stay in this hotel if they want to go to Alona beach.
The "Guiseppe" restaurant (about 400 meters from ChArts) is a really really good italian restaurant. I enjoy their pizza and a relatively wide selection of wine.

Charming resort, clean and friendly
Well located, friendly, laid back atmosphere, well kept
A truly charming little resort, not too near the beach but within easy walking distance. Clean rooms, good breakfast, well maintained pool. Friendly and accommodating staff.
A few small things could be done to make it even better;
1)the wifi coverage is pretty much limited to the reception area and it would be very helpful if it could be extended reliably into the rooms.
2) individual safety boxes in the rooms would feel better than using the common ones provided in the reception area.
3) consider mosquito nets

Great place, Good service, Nice food!
Lovely & quiet place, Very friendly and helpful staff
It was definitely a great stay.
Everything was fantastic.
The only suggestion I have is to add more Snacks/finger food to the menu, such as fries, nachos, nuggets, etc.
