Ottimo cibo, camere non esaltanti...
Cucina, Diving, Piscina, Tranquillità, Cortesia
Prenotato soggiorno di sette notti in base anche alla bella descrizione della camera e delle utilities promesse: bagno con doccia e vasca, tv lcd, wi-fi.
Poi la nostra sosta si è ridotta a sole due notti per gravi motivi personali, ma la delusione per la realtà della struttura è stata tanta!
Le camere standard non hanno affatto il bagno con doccia e vasca, sono solo con doccia e solo alcune con doccia rinnovata (e ad onor del vero bella) ma... SENZA ACQUA CALDA!
La tv lcd non c'è (infatti poi la descrizione della stanza è stata modificata).
Il wi-fi in camera non c'è! Forse in quelle proprio a ridosso della zona ristorante, ma non nelle altre.
Il letto è scomodo, se avete problemi di schiena non vi consiglio assolutamente le camere standard, non so quelle di livello superiore.
Per finire con la stanza va detto che era veramente piccola, tant'è che il letto è addossato a due pareti...
Un'altra nota negativa è la spiaggia, sicuramente ampia ma con un'accessibilità complessa, per arrivare al mare ci sono degli scalini non facili da affrontare se si ha una mobilità limitata.
Ciò premesso il posto è bello, l'area è pulita e silenziosissima, se cercate un posto dove rilassarvi e magari fare delle belle immersioni questo hotel è sicuramente un ottima possibilità, se poi amate mangiare la cucina non vi deluderà, il proprietario (tedesco) acquista personalmente al mercato i prodotti freschi, tant'è che il menù della cena varia secondo la disponibilità quotidiana.
Potrete anche ordinare prodotti specifici, se possibile il proprietario cercherà di accontentarvi.

Comfortable hotel with friendly and caring staff.
Quiet location, pleasant atmosphere, just a very nice place to stay.
We arrived just after the typhoon and had been told that there was no mains power in Bohol. The management and staff had worked hard to provide power with a large generator so there was no problem. It was very quiet in Bohol Sea Resort and generally in Alona Beach presumably due to the media coverage of the recent typhoon but this shouldn't put potential holidaymakers off because to our relief everything was ok.
Upon arrival at Bohol Sea Resort Hanschie one of the managers explained everything about the hotel and what we should expect. The food was excellent. Joy and Joy ran the cocktail bar to perfection. Our bungalow was superb. Large, clean and good decor. We decided to take a discover scuba diving lesson and Neil the instructor took great care and was very patient with us and this resulted in a brilliant first dive seeing wonderful sea life.
We really enjoyed our stay here and would certainly recommend it. Thank you to all the management and staff.

Disappointing. Mildly stressful.
The waiters in the restaurant were very attentive professional. The orchid gardens were beautiful. But, honestly, the best part about the stay was leaving...it was a relief to get away!
Disappointing. We definately did not feel welcome. We would never stay here again.
Despite their genuinely terrific grounds and facilities, the pervasively negative behavior of the staff really made for an unpleasant atmosphere overall. (Though we did appreciate the solemn professionalism of the waiters and kitchen workers.) There was a tangible lack of warmth and hospitality throughout our stay. Key members of the staff were often dismissive and even condescending at times. The services provided were often grudgingly carried out by people who clearly didn't want to be there. Over and over, it was the kind of bad service that just ruins a vacation. Because of the way we were treated, neither one of us ever felt comfortable. And, judging by the demeanors of other guests, it looked like we weren't alone.
Also, their wi-fi access was a frustrating joke. If you need or want access to the Internet, do not stay here.
Please note that I have travelled extensively around the world, this was not my first time in the Philippines and I spent several years living in both Asia and Europe. My significant other is originally from the next island over. I say this to point out that the criticisms written here are not born out of inexperience or naïveté. And I rarely write negative reviews...there is usually something positive worth sharing. But there was such an overwhelmingly unfriendly feeling about this place that it ruined our stay on Bohol and we feel it neccessary to write a flat-out bad review. And we are definately pulling my punches here.
If there are others on this site that repeat these same kinds of complaints we have written here, then hopefully you will avoid the Bohol Sea Resort.

Good value for the area.Away from Alona Beach
Enjoyed a nice quiet time there away from the hustle and bustle and hagglers of Alona Beach only a half hour walk or 5 min if you have your own bike which I highly recommend. Has all the facilities one would expect and kept to a high standard in keeping with the German management whom are very attentive and helpful. Caters for divers , beach is no better than Alona so the swimming pool is very good . Menu limited but good quality and reasonable value for this area. Good air con but check if hot water works , WiFi sporadic . Overall I think it is a good choice if you dont want to pay a lot more in the very busy Alona Beach area.

Perfect for Relaxing and Diving !
The Staff is really nice; People who stay there are also really friendly and the environment is Pleasant
Me and my friend went there for vacation. My friend is not a diver and even if this is a diver hotel, we never felt bored ! People we met there and especially the staff and the two managers were really nice with us. They are attentive to all your need and there is no chance to have any inconvenience during your trip with a staff like them.
The beach is at 30 feet from the room. Of course if you want to party 24h/24 this is not the right place. However, me and my friend were going to Alona beach during the night to party and were happy to go back to our quiet hotel to sleep.
Rooms are more than comfortable and rooms are cleaned daily.
To be honest, no word could describe our stay there, it was just fantastic. Thank you to the guest at that time and to the managers.

Nice and relaxing resort. Friendly staff.
Diving/snorkling, close to friendly lokal people, nice and quiet.
If you prefere to stay in a nice and quiet resort away from the more busy Alona beach this is the perfect place. Very good diving and snorkling. Beautiful surrondings at the resort. Good value for the money. Friendly stuff and good food. Easy to walk in to the restaurants in the evening or take the local tricyckle.

The hotels location is a bit far away from Alona beach and its restaurants and shops. To get there, you have to contact some locals for a ride to the city. Worked pretty well, but a little bit annoying with the "free massage road" every day... it's a hell of a bumpy ride! Otherwise, the hotel's garden is beautiful and the room ok. Breakfast made while ordering, only the smallest one included in Agoda though (the owner explained to us why, they never promised more fore Agoda's price but as a guest you except more for the paid price. Very good dining both times we ordered food!
