Relaxing resort
Our stay was very nice and we wish we can stay longer. The sea was very calm with powdery sands and clear waters. The restaurant was a bit pricey but food was good with lots of options. The pools were small but the sea is enough for swimming. Massage was very good. The staff was very accomodating especially the phone operator. The bathroom was clean but the shower head needs to be replaced as water flow was not very good. The surroundings have hammocks and colorful seats and bean bags. You can rest anywhere and experience peace and quiet. Overall, it was satisfactory and can be recommended to other travellers.

New Found Serenity In Panglao
We love the setting and the atmosphere of this place. They offer modern rooms and facility without loosing the feel of nature in the place. They also offer complete relaxation that every guest deserve with their yummy food, massage, sports/beach equipment and peaceful ambiance. The free shuttle to Alona beach was a big plus for us as not all hotels offer this, especially for those who wants to party while in Bohol, however I hope they can extend pick up hours going back to the resort of to up to 11 to 12mn as transport in Bohol is quite difficult. You only have an option to take the tricycle which can be a very bumpy ride. Overall I would highly recommend this resort for those visiting Bohol, we will come back again soon :-)

above satisfactory.
The resort was nice, however communication was an issue with the staff as the resort got 4 of our orders wrong. There was also 4 functions over the 4 of the 8 days we stayed at the resort. One was a business team building which had around 50 people running around the resort playing strange games for 3 days. Finally my girlfriend got food poisoning on the third day, she only ate at the resort. However, they did have an on site nurse who came to our room once I notified the staff. All in all its a great location with lovely views. But in terms of service, food hygiene and the number of functions, the resort could do with some improvement.

Excellent customer service
Excellent customer service but it comes with a rather hefty price. Beach and shore are cleaned daily from seaweeds. Pools are a lot fun. Resto is exorbitantly expensive but food quality is just above average.

How a Bohol Vacation Should Be
Great location. Great service. Talk about pampering, they got you covered. After you experience their hospitaliy, you don't want to leave the place. The resort is so big that you will have the privacy and seclusion you need. Simply the best resort I have stayed in. Resort tips: book their beachfront villa, room 225 to be exact. 😊

My benchmark for this review are similar resorts in Thailand. Compared to that the food was awful (limited selection, uninspired, flawed execution), the service painfully slow (that was a problem everywhere in the Philippines but you'd expect a good hotel to do better) and the room was sub standard (I had no real hot water for most of my stay and very low pressure water supply - I told the hotel five times and they didn't fix it). I left a day early.

Perfect getaway
We love their fabulous white sand beach & sumptuous buffet meals! We googled for the top ten restaurants in Bohol & one of the sites cited Oceanica Restaurant, which is this resort's restaurant, as the number 1 restaurant in Bohol. The staff are also courteous & very helpful. The privacy is a plus since only guests of this resort are allowed to roam its long white sand shores. We have nothing to do but relax, aside from snorkeling which we do love!
