          Leaves much to be desired”

          Room is not cleaned. Therefore ran out of toilet paper. Aircon barely works. Bed had an ant infestation. In fairness it appears they have recently upgraded some of the room layout, nice big shower, though no water pressure. Pool is nice. it is just lacking atmosphere. Couldn't find the bar / restaurant. No problem because just go next door or down the street. But staff frankly did not give a poop. Barely acknowledge you. I think there are better places to stay if this is the one and only time you visit Bohol.

          No hot water during stay apparently solar hart not working, very poor water pressure aircon barely worked, was very loud lots of mosquitos in the room due to large gaps around door and aircon, needed regular spraying and use of repellent.

          Above average”

          On the last day of our stay, we were told there’s no water and they don’t have enough supplies. There’s just lack of planning from the management knowing it was the holy week. The room we got also kept losing electricity and had to keep calling the staff to fix it. Staff are accommodating and friendly, but hard to locate if we need assistance. Bar could definitely use some refurbishing of supplies.

          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.

          LOCATION IS SATISFACTORY!”

          Booked this place for our 5th wedding Anniversary. I considered the location because I wanted to stay in Alona Beach. The resort is right in front of the beach and we were thankful that our room is in beachfront. Everything is okay except with these things: - that the water supply in our bathroom is sometimes low and there's no hot water. -There is no telephone in our room so whenever we need something we need to look for some staff outside to assist us. - there are also a lot of mosquitoes everywhere, good thing I brought insect repellent. - the swimming pool is sometimes full of leaves, it is understandable because the pool area is surrounded by trees, however my daughter doesn't like to swim because of that. The restaurant's foods by the way are very cheap and delicious and serving is good for 1-2 persons. We personally loved their banana split and mango split. :) We will definitely go back here!

          Not recommended at all”

          Aircon is very noisy it’s hard to get decent sleep. Plus the cleaners are sweeping the grounds at wee hours like 5 or 6 am, and they talk to each other loudly too. No concierge during the night so when you need something you have to wait in the morning. They don’t give you towels unless you ask for them.

          Not really a 'resort'”

          It's a great location at the end of the beach, so easy to get to everything ....that's about all it has going for it. The pool is freezing because it's used for people learning to dive so very deep--the only way I would get in is with a wetsuit! The resort is kept nice, but the rooms are kind of gross. We had a suite with living room, but the furniture was all wood and old, so not comfortable at all. There were tons of mosquitos in our room, no nets. While it had toiletries, they were those cheap plastic one-use things, so not environmentally friendly at all! I would not recommend staying here.

          A place on the beach, simple beautiful!”

          This place is located at the end of the beach coast and so it provides utmost calm and serenity. You can hear beach waves al throughout the day and night and the water of this beach is lovely. They don't provide room service (phone, etc.) and their air-con took some time to cool the room, but they did ensure they cleaned up the room the next morning. The only drawback of this place is that sometimes during peak season, there could be an event hosted nearby on the beach and this hinders the lovely beach experience. Otherwise, its an amazing place to stay.

          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.

          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.

          Great reclusive location”

          The rooms were basic, but clean. We had to chase for towels a couple of times and the shower was not the best (water wasn't always warm) but wasn't hugely important. There was a big party for the visiting SEA dignitaries, where they had suckling pig amongst other delights. Rather than feeling pushed out, when we were paying to stay there, they encouraged us to (sneakily) try the food. Generally speaking the food wasn't that great, but wasn't awful either. As ever, some dishes being better than others. The calamari was like rubber, but after explanation, they did take it off the bill. The cocktails were pretty good and a couple of the waiters were great at remembering what we liked. The porters were happy to bring out loungers when we asked, but we had to know to ask in the first place. Generally good service! We'd probably stay there again, particularly as it's away from the noise.

          Awesome place to stay!”

          This is a great place to stay. The gardens are beautiful & there's a ton of ambiance. We had a remodeled room near the beach. 2 restaurants & bars. We didn't eat there as there were too many other places to try. They have a new van that took us for $500P back to the ferry terminal. Staff was very friendly. Location right on the beach & the last northern resort on the beach. Nice room with hot water. Pool was nice & clean. Walk along the beach & back.....get a massage for $500P. We loved Alona Beach. We dove with Sea Explorers - definitely a highly rated dive company. Enjoy!

          A little noisy nearby but nice place.”

          It's in a tourist area so expect lots of people, places to eat and drink. The city is about 30mins drive away. Food good but the next hotel has a lovely buffet if that's your thing. Step walk from reception to the rooms. Restaurant at the lower part of the resort near the sea. Pool at the upper part. Plenty of shade for those who need to avoid the sun.

          Your home in Panglao”

          The place is very clean, quiet, a touch of peace and serenity because of the surrounding trees around the pool area. The room rates is a reasonable affordable prices. The room is clean, except that there are mosquitoes that can enter the small hole in the door, and also the smell of the septic tank is very strong during the early morning, hope the management can do something about this. The bathroom is clean and with hot and cold shower. The restaurant serves delicious food at a reasonable price. Will definitely choose this hotel in my next visit in Panglao.
