The resort is located at the end of a bay, beach close to your room. The room was nice spacious and clean and had a little veranda where you could sit and have a drink. We had a very pleasant stay. For exploring the environment renting a bike or scooter is recommendable, we had ours at 'Island Rentals' and were very satisfied with service, quality , price and contact.
Pros: -great location -convenient pickup transfers -friendly, hospitable staff -clean rooms -good beachfront -nice pool area Cons: -will have to ask for a towels from the staff (not included upon checking in) -no wifi inside the rooms
Very expensive resort but only the location worth ”
The only good thing about the resort are the location close to Hennan resort Small TV, a lot of mosquitos in the room (no mosquito nets in any windows even in the bad room windows), no facilities in the bad room, safety box didn't work, tv remote didn't worked, aircon very loud
The location is a 10...the room is a 5”
There was so much wrong with our room I don't know where to start. First the water pressure or lack of. The water stopped half way through a shower. But that was probably a good thing since the water was cold. I never had a warm shower on my stay. At night the guests all gathered in the lobby. That was because that was the only place you could get WiFi. The place is a mosquito haven. I had dozens of them hovering around my door just waiting to get in my room. They have a tea kettle but don't provide any coffee or tea. Also you get only two bottles of water on the FIRST night of your visit. Their restaurant served mediocre food at best. Really this is a low budget place on an expensive beachfront. You should be able to find something better.
Relaxing and easy vacation”
Having stayed in this resort 4 years previously I was looking for a few significant improvements. The walkways up and down from reception have been paved and make that journey much easier. The location is beachfront and so sand and mud are always a present. The resort is a good walk from the main cafes and shops. Lighting in the rooms is much improved and the room facilities are basically good. The staff is fantastic and always extremely helpful and friendly. The air conditioner in the room was effective but quite noisy - in-wall style. Sidetables next to the bed would be a great improvement as storage and table space is extremely limited - although all the rooms have a private verandah and hanging bar for wet clothes. TV works but not great reception - but there's always the amazing beach... Two main issues: Hot water pressure was almost non-existent and it took at least 10 minutes to get warm water. No wifi except in reception and the restaurant - really!
This is not a hotel, this is a hostel...”
The rooms are poorly cleaned, the bed linen is dirty even new. Hot water in the shower is often missing. The air conditioner stinks. Hotel's staff from 6 in the morning are talking loudly, shouting to each other - do not allow to sleep. At the reception, security guards constantly discuss something loudly.
Beach property ”
Pros: The property itself is right on the beach. It is next to the famous Henann Resort. We were fortunate enough to be on the 1st floor, close to the resort pool & beach. The room & ameneties were basic but clean & bed was comfortable enough. We did not eat at the restaurant. We opted to eat at the Henann for dinner since they offered amazing Happy Hour food & libations. Also, we ate at other restaurants on the beach for breakfast & lunch. Cons: Wi-Fi was only available at main lobby area. Receptionist did not give us the correct information regarding moped rental. She directed us to go on the main road to rent when the moped rental is literally just outside the resort gates also when asked how much it was to take their resort shuttle she gave us a price of 800 pesos but she could have offered us to take their tricycle for 250 pesos/10 minute ride to airport. My biggest issue with the place was their shower floor, it was very slippery, I slipped & fell backwards.
Problems with Shower and Hot Water.
Good resort on Alona beach”
Alona Tropical Beach Resort is good resort located in the best southern part of Alona beach. My sea view bungalow was very cozy and comfortable. Beach was perfect. Recommend.
beachfront hotel after hennan beach”
pros -the hotel can be accessed from the main road compare to other hotels -room is spacious and with veranda -with pool -with buffet breakfast but Agoda is not offering the breakfast -the choices in the breakfast are ok -friendly and approachable staff -comfy pillows and bed -aircon, tv and water in the faucets are working cons -one time complimentary water -no complimentary coffee -no complimentary conditioner and toothpaste -no standby umbrella in each room -no wifi in the rooms; wifi is only available in the restaurant and reception area -no hot water in the faucets and shower -no telephone in the room so that we can call the reception area
Not worth it ”
It's a nice place to stay but lacking a lot. There's no fridge, they say complimentary water but only 2 small bottles, it also says Wi-Fi in rooms but no and I barely got data internet. The water pressure is just a trickle unless you like cold water and the water temperature for hot water is not very high it's barely lukewarm. Then at the time of my checkout they changed me for an extra mattress which I wasn't expecting because I booked for 7 people so I should have paid for 7 when I booked. This is the first and last time I will stay here. Although the staff are very friendly I don't see the value. Very poor
Great Location, Rooms Basic”
This resort has one of the best locations on the island - beachfront property, direct access to Alona Beach. The grounds of the resort looks great with tall trees and gardens. Only one pool but the beach is just a few steps down so still okay. Staff are courteous. Food pricing is reasonable but Alona beach area is getting more expensive these days. We booked 6 rooms. Newly renovated from the looks of it. But only basic considering how the resort positioned its pricing. You have a bed (or 2), air conditioning unit, TV, wardrobe, a very small safety box. Rooms have limited power outlets available. Toilets are basic providing only sachets of shampoos and soap (they need to rethink this considering the price of the room). Aircon unit could be noisy, not pleasant smell coming out from the aircon unit on my second night. Did not clean the room the next day (could be because we were checking out the next day? wasnt the case in other hotels I stayed before). Limited towels. Overall, was okay.
Review: This place clearly lost its former glory it had as one of the first resort at the Alona beach. There are innumerous negatives, here are mine: - Rooms have no WiFi and only patchy and bad 4G network connection (we're in the year 2019 after all...) - No inter-com (😣) - No hot water during our 6 night stay over New Year's Eve (solar thermal, but backup not working) - Loud air-conditioner - No refrigerator in the rooms - WiFi in public areas but very slow - Loud and noisy people and entertainment - Power sockets and Euro plugs fall out... (even with the US plug there are issues) - No hangers - Room wasn't cleaned everyday and staff had to be reminded The only positive feedback I have is the great location and low prices (at the time I booked). But this place is not maintained and investments in infrastructure have clearly stopped. I won't be back for sure.
overall is good. facilities are good and food is reasonable. my only concern is the toilet, the drainage on the toilet floor is not properly working.the water after bath is not properly flowing done and the floor is a bit slippery as well. but overall it was a good stay. i will definitely good back

Staff was wonderful, food was great, beach was lovely and we really enjoyed out time here. Was close enough to town that you could walk everywhere but far enough removed that it was quiet and peaceful. Landscaping and pool area made you feel like you were in the jungle!

Love the atmosphere, good breakfast, good beach! ”
so many trees on site combined with all the wood accents in the construction of the resort make this a special place with a natural feel. The staff were professional and dealt with problems quickly and politely. I used the laundry service and had no problem getting it back smelling fresh the next day. The whole area had a power outage when I was there, but luckily they had a generator. Would have been a hot sweaty night! The beach is why you should come here. Very relaxing to lay on the beach chairs and listen to the waves. Not too many people on this section of beach. Would definitely return.
Warmth Greetings! Thank you so much for choosing Alona Tropical as one of your vacation destination. We are looking forward for your next stay in our humble Tropical Paradise. God bless and more power to you!
Now this is Value”
I rented this place for my sister and her 11yr old son. Now this room is new, the furnishings and amenities and the bathroom is NEW and the room gets cold enough since the airconditioning unit is definitely good enough for the size of the room. The only comment I have that I wasn't able to include in my review of the pool side suite is that. Their swimming pool is too far from the beach, it doesnt have beach view at all, so its difficult for us to keep watch on our children while lounging in the sand, I hope that Alona tropical will upgrade its amenities, maybe its time for a new pool? one that is in front of the new rooms, beside the restaurant? Now that would be an amazing view. I would also recommend to try other restaurants instead of the inhouse resto of Alona Tropical, their Menu and Cooking needs a lot of work. Try Pyramid Resort when you eat. Alona Tropicals location is optimal for a serene "family" feel, but it needs upgrade.
Warmest Greetings! Thank you for staying with us! Rest assured that your concern will be forwarded to our management for further actions to be done. We are looking forward for your next visit. God bless and more power!
I love the newly renovated De luxe room facing the beach, the staff are kind especially the driver who picked us up at the airport. However, the wifi is only accessible in the reception area , there should be wifi in every room ... it is must for travellers.
Dear Ms. Fe, Greetings! Thank you for your review, rest assured that your concern will be taken for appropriate action for the improvement of our service. Thank you very much hoping to see you again here!
Towels were not in the room and took forever to receive it. WiFi not in the room. See ants and mosquitoes in the room. Poor drainage of the wash sink.
Problem is no wifi in room, network signals is weak, means even data wont work. The only place where you can get a wifi is when you are at the resto. But the good side of it is you can relax. You will able to enjoy the place. Must bring off lotion, since they have lots of trees, mosquitos is expected. They are everywhere! But all in all. We love the place!
Warmth Greetings! We do apologize for your concern, rest assured that it will be forwarded to our management for some actions to be done. However, thank you very much for staying with us. We hope to have you again here soon. God bless and more power!
