            Best stay in Alona”

            This is the 2nd time we’ve stayed at Alona Vida. I nearly booked the new resort hotel next door and I was so pleased I didn’t. Alona Vida is a great stay. The rooms are large and clean. There is a small pool to take a dip but not big enough to do swimming. The restaurant area and bar looks out on the beach and a great place to watch everyone walk by. The menu is varied and good quality. In the evening a band plays and good atmosphere. The prices are going up in Alona however this hotel is still good value.

            The hotel is just along the beach line where there are lots of tourists are restaurants. Yet, the rooms are pretty quiet and relaxing. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. They are willing to go extra mile to assist the costumers.

            Almost perfect!”

            The hotel placed at the almost end of the Alona beach. It is really easy to come out and see the beautiful beach and sun rise. Inside of the resort, there was a small swimming pool, was good to enjoy a little. The restaurant, I ate only breakfast at there, was good. The family room was two connected room with double bed each, which means we had 2 bathrooms, so we could save our time while we're using it. I have stayed 3 hotels so far in near Alona beach, and this hotel was the best for the water pressure in shower. The problem, however, the Wifi was very unstabled only in one room. In addition, It is not easy to walk to the resort with a heavy carrier because of the sand. (Perhaps, you can ask the desk, I remember they have a service to bring customer's luggage to the entrance of the Alona beach, not sure if it is free.)

            Great location on beach”

            The hotel is on the beach but there is no tricycle service there. You are dropped off at the end of a beach walk & then follow a beach path to the hotel, less than a 5 minute walk sometimes skidding a bag in the sand. We checked in early which was nice & there are lounge chairs on the beach for guests, very nice. It is located near other hotels & restos. Breakfast was included & ordered off the breakfast menu which was nice. We ate other meals there, all good. Our room, very clean, had a balcony on an inner courtyard which was quiet. The staff were friendly & helpful & would stay again if in the area.

            Just the right kind of hotel”

            I've stayed in 5-star hotels (Hennan) and 2 star places (Lost Horizon) and I can honestly say this one is just right - not too fancy but "luxurious" enough to enjoy staying and hanging out during the day. Decent size room, clean functional bathroom, easy access to the pool, the restaurant and a few steps away from the beach, literally (i.e. you get up in the morning and walk for 20 seconds and your feet are on beach sand). Service is excellent as is typical with many Filipino hotels, food is good and reasonably priced. Band music at night if you want to just zone out after a day's worth of touring. Our unit came with a little patio up front where you could just drink coffee and relax with a view of the pool. For the price, this place is highly recommended. Wifi isn't as strong but that's typical in all these small hotels, maybe just because of the sheer amount of people trying to save on their data plans. I wish I had stayed here instead of the first hotel we stayed at.

            Staff are not so welcoming. There’s even no welcome drinks upon arrival while others do? They didn’t offered any assistance also to carry our luggage when we arrived. Plus, We had bed bugs bite during our first night as well. Though the location is nice because it’s at the beach front. However, money value wise, i think i would reconsider going back here. You guys need to work on your service you provide because one day it might greatly affect your productivity.

            Good location - hospitable staff”

            When you reach Alona beach, you have to walk about 10 minutes to get to the hotel. It may be worth it using backpacks or at least refrain from using strollers as you will pass by the sand area. I like that the resort is close to the beach (about 20 meters away). The beach was okay and lots of seagrass (perhaps the season we went there). There is a small pool near their cabanas and rooms were very spacious. Food was also okay but a bit pricey which I think is at par with all the other restaurants located in this area. We enjoyed the live music which happens Fridays and Saturday nights. Staff are friendly and courteous and attends fast to your needs. Overall, I would recommend this but there may be alternatives you can get for the same price within the location.

            We wanted a hotel just in front of Alona beach. Alona Vida was just perfect! They have a restaurant, too. Food was okay. Not sure if there is a live band that plays there every night but there was one during the nights we were there. The family room we got was perfect as well- 2 big adjoining rooms. The rooms are farther inside so we were able to rest. And the customer service we got was beyond expectations. The staff accommodated our request for an early check-in and arranged a seaport pick-up for us. They also arranged our island hopping and land tours. When we requested for our free breakfast to be packed as we were leaving the hotel very early for the island hopping, they did as we requested. Just perfect! We will definitely go back there again! Thank you so much, Alona Vida!

            We stayed at Alona Vida Beach Resort for 3D2N, The room is spacious and clean, I actually didn’t expect that because it’s actually small in pictures. Location is conveniently in front if the beach and there are a lot of restaurants to choose from. My favorite is the free breakfast, in which, servings are very generous. Some of the staffs are nice and friendly while some are unapproachable, but that’s okay. We’ll definitely book this resort again if we will visit Bohol soon.

            This is a very good hotel located on Alona Beach which is the best beach in the island in my opinion. The hotel had great atmosphere with live music in the evenings, but the food was slightly higher in price compared to some nearby competitors. The staff at reception and in the restaurant were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

            Great location. Great customer service. Clean and spacious room. Its restaurant is good and has a chill environment. Beach shore is so so. Side of Hennan is better as our area is not that well maintaned. Too many rocks. Good place if you will be having tours everyday and will not spend your time in the resort. If you want to chill or spend your holidays in a resort,go to Dumaluan beach area or splurge in Henann or Amorita.

            great! except!”

            A great hotel with nice rooms and perfect beach front setting. Staff are friendly. The "except"? They gave me a recently painted room that smelled awful. I got a bad head ache very quickly. I asked for a change and they gave me another room. After that they had the sliding glass window of the original room opened and had a fan airing the room out. I dont think they should even book out the room. The fumes had to be hazardous. They should not hope that they can get a customer who would acquiesce to staying in that room. Even with this experience, I would still rate the hotel a resounding 5.

            Great resort! Value for money”

            Location is really good. The resort entrance doesnt look impressive but once you get inside, it is quite cool and breezy because there are several trees within the area. Each room also has a patio which i really appreciate This resort is a bang for the buck. I will definitely stay here again if I were to go to Panglao again.
