overall good for the priced through agoda

excellent price w/bfast included. 600m to regents park gym. 5-10 min walk to beach
overall pretty happy with the hotel and met expectations for the budget price. bed was pretty hard, not too comfortable and subsequently resulted in a sore back.

great location and price

location, price
though it's not closed to the beach, it needs five mins. good price for me.and the wifi and free breakfast are good. if the price can be lower, it will be the best choice.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: walk 5mins to the alona beach

Nice Rooms, Amiable Staff, Great Value for Money

Location, maintained rooms, near attractions, proximity to a variety of food outlets, diverse activities
This is not the fault of the hotel but as one of the tourist attractions of the island of Panglao, Bohol, I think businesses located there should propose to the government steps to improve transportation services around the island, to the city of Tagbilaran and to the gateway like the airport. The owner of the hotel, is quite friendly and hospitable that it spreads to the staffs of the hotel. The hotel is in good shape, it is clean and satisfactory. The food outlet is pleasing. Although not located in the beach-front, It is just around 30 meters away, no sweat actually. I will definitely people I know to stay in this hotel.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Bohol offers a diverse kind of attractions like shopping for native goods; natural landscape like the Chocolate Hills, islands and beaches; endemic creatures like the tarsiers and dolphins; nature like forest, falls and rivers; local heritages like churches, floating restaurant, songs and dances; and of course nightlife from bars and pubs to karaoke and clubs.

Fine for the money

Friendly staff, price
I stayed at this hotel for four nights, and thought it was fine for the money. I'm not really a budget traveler, but I chose this place because I figured it would be quieter than some of the other places closer to the beach. The room fit for the price. You can pay a little extra and do a little better I guess, but I'm not so picky. Staff are very friendly. Would recommend if you're on a budget, or if you're not so picky and want to be away from the noise.

The Blue Elephant

Good breakfast, great restaurant next door, clean rooms, walking distance to the beach
we stayed in a nice bungalow. the towels were changed daily and we didn't have to ask. the room was a little dim, we had to turn all the light on. there is a hidden safe under the tv which you need to get a key from reception for. the breakfast was good, pastries, cereal, toast, philipino, cooked breakfast, etc. the bathroom had liquid soap and shower gel, a nice touch.

great value for money

good free breakfast included , 5min. walk to the beach
i was worried because i only booked the room w/ fan.good thing it rained on d night we stayed so it wasn't really that hot.they have a water dispenser outside the room w/c is good.rooms were basic,no shampoo,soap etc. included but twas ok for us as we always travel ready.the receptionists and waitresses were friendly.they don't have much food tho on their menu but nothing to worry as there are a lot of restaurants along the street.
Restaurant Tip: from le elephant bleu -->> right side: filipino price restos. to the left: foreigner price ;) -->> a tip we got from one of the locals. also, alona beach is nothing interesting. it's not clean nor attractive to swim. heard the virgin islands is a must-see. too bad we weren't able to go there. don't miss the countryside tour too. it's really educational. :)

L’Elephant Bleu Cottages & Rooms

Along the highway
This place is good for backpackers. Its not a hotel but more of a dorm. The stair case is so steep and dangerous for adults like my mom (60yr old)...the room aircondition did not function well, it was hot in our room...well, not hot hot but not cold as it is supposed to be. Bathroom has no exhaust or window... The price is high fir its amenities...theres no amenities! No staff, except for that one lady who was the all around staff...she's the front desk officer, housekeeping attendant, bellboy, room service attendant, cashier, and manaager..No one to even help carry you luggage in your room. And another thing, the mattress was so thin!

Nice clean cottages

Close walk to all Alona Beach food and attractions
This hotel is very close to the beach road, where it's just a 2 minute walk to the beach. We stayed in one of the cottages, which was kept very clean and had everything we needed...hot shower, comfy bed, tv with decent channels, fan, a/c. The wifi did not work inside the room, but it worked fine outside in the common area. The only real downside was that the cottages are located close to the main road, so you will hear the sound of motorbikes all day and night! There are a few other hotels that are more tucked away and comparable in price (not currently listed on Agoda), which I'd recommend checking for availability once you arrive and walk around. We would have stayed there longer, because we were fine with it and didn't want to move our things, but it turned out that we had to move anyway because they became booked before we could add more days there. We ended up finding a place on the beach road that was more tucked in and quiet from the street noise, so that turned out to be a blessing!

Nice hotel with reliable price

Price\quality was good...
We was in this hotel 3 nights. Not bad solution to visit Bohol island and Alona Beach. We choosed fan room, and my friends were in air-con cottage. Both variant is good.

Good location, small rooms and noisy from road

Cottage style accommodation 5 minutes from the beach
Rooms are ok but a little small. Matress is foam based which can get hot and the fitted sheet always came off the bed. The towels are old and often had stains or were old. The room had aircon and fan, tv, hot shower etc. Not much space to put your clothes with two people in the room. Road noise can be noisy at night.
