Alona42 location hard to beat. Good value!”
It was a pleasant stay. The bungalow was comfortable and roomy enough. The bed sheets could have been thicker but the two double beds pushed together were comfortable. Plenty of storage space and the bathroom was clean with the shower facility offering warm water and good pressure. Expect black ants however if you have citrus flavored mouthwash at the sink. My partner wish there could have been a hair dryer but that is not too common an amenity with hotels in the area. We only had breakfast during our brief stay and it was ordered from the neighboring Vanilla sky kitchen. The food served was sufficient. It was unfortunate that the cable company had a technical problem which resulted in no tv coverage for a day and one half. However, the staff was always prompt, professional and friendly. Alona 42 resort's location is what is best about it since it is just about a 3 minute walk to white sand Alona Beach. The Alona Beach restaurants and hotels are within a 10 minute walk along the beach. Alona 42 Resort offers above average value for the expense. Worth a second look the next time Panglao Island is on the itinerary.
They made swimming pool!”
It’s been a long time from last visit! Alona42 made new outside swimming pool. It looks very clean, although I couldn’t use swimming pool for the bed weather. I felt some noisy sound at night for the strong windy and rainy weather. So I used earplug before sleeping. Anyway, this resort was good to stay in reasonable price with good guest service.
Thank you very much for your review.We are glad to hear it from you. See you soonest for your next vacation trip.
Best value in Alona Beach”
The staff at Alona42 is the best service we encountered in the country. Gina in particular was absolutely wonderful to be around and made sure everything was always taken care of. The room was much nicer than any other we stayed at for this price point. We moved around a lot during our stay and this was by far the best. Book it now!!
Hi Morgan, Warm Greetings from us! Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful experience with us. We are very glad to hearing it from you, and your kind words about our staff will definitely serve as an inspiration for all of us to continue delivering our signature service to our future guests. It was truly a pleasure having you and we hope to have the opportunity to welcome you once again. Yours Truly, Alona42 Resort Team
Quiet and comfortable”
We had a fantastic stay at Alona42, everything was above our expectactions and to fair prices. You would need to scoother though to get around as the walk to the mainroad takes you around 15 min. (still ok if you want), but this makes the place really quiet and you can enjoy your holiday. Also the staff is super friendly all the time. By the way, they have the best rum&coke for just 60 Peso.
Hello Michael, Thank you! We highly appreciate your positive feedback. Looking forward to see you again in the near future. Have a great day ahead! Regards, Jessa of Alona42
We loved staying at Alona42. It was one of my favorite hotels. The rooms were spotless and well decorated and the staff was helpful and friendly. The hotel is fantastic for the price. The pictures don't do it justice!
My favourite stay in Alona Beach!”
This was already my 2nd time staying with Alona42, so you can tell how much I love it! It's within 5mins walk from the beach but far enough to stay away from the noise so very quiet. The room is clean and comfortable. The food is also very nice. And most importantly, the staffs are super friendly and helpful! Will definitely stay again for my next visit!
Dear Guest, Thank you for choosing our hotel, and for taking the time to write a review! We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your accommodations. Our team aims to provide a truly unique experience, and we are thrilled that we were able to exceed your expectations. We look forward to welcoming you back to our property in the future.

We enjoyed our stay in Alona42 even though we just stayed for a night. We stayed on a room good for 6. It is not that spacious but just enough. The pool is relaxing and they have a good view for the sunrise. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The only thing I don’t like is the low pressure of water in the shower but overall we enjoyed our stay. The place is budget friendly, clean, comfy and worth what we paid for.
Hi Girlie! Thank you for sharing your experience through Agoda.com. Thank you and we look forward to welcoming you back at Alona42 resort the next time you visit Bohol! Regards, Analou
A lovely resort”
I was here with my girlfriend and we loved it. It's minutes away from the beach and the nightlife. The aircon and fan were working perfectly and there was also the cable TV to watch international channels (not that I used it though). I strongly recommend Alona42!
Management and customer service 5/5. Responsive receptionists and manager. Early bird 8am for available food, no short orders (one serving) for lunch they'll offer the other side hotel menu (Vanila Sky hotel). Maybe an eight to ten min. walk from the hotel to Panglao white sand beach. If night comes rent a habal habal just to go there or risk walking along the dark street. Tour from Tagbilaran port to Panglao Alona42 for cab it cost 300 one way so get someone riding the habal habal for cheaper tour. Be prepared for all things you need, expensive drinks, noodles and even cigar. Rooms - if you're looking for expensive but high quality of room it's check! Wifi kinda weak for getting good connections (fluctuating signal). Quiet place to stay.
We'd definitely love to come back here if we ever get back to Panglao, Bohol. Thank you so much for the great stay. Food may be a little bit overpriced, but overall, everything went well. Thank you!
Was set to book at a different property after reading online reviews and decided to switch to B&B’s and on the site I was looking at Alona 42 came up, it looked like a hotel but was somehow listed incorrectly. Anyways it had great reviews and I booked it and oh how I’M GLAD I DID!!!! First off it is in a quiet area and only a very cheap ride to the central part of town (3 minutes). I stayed in their smallest (which was wonderful) to their top of the line apartment (an absolute bargain), the rooms are bright, clean, well appointed and very near the restaurant and office for any needs. The prices of everything were among the best I’ve ever seen. The free breakfast is on a menu so you actually have a choice which is better than the usual buffet line. The entire staff is extremely warm and accommodating. Now for the best, I had the pleasure of being almost “personally” taken care of by their one “person” show Gina whom almost runs the show, bar tends, takes food orders, arranges transportation, sets up dat trips etc etc! Gina is one of the few Filipinos I’ve met whom has been around the world and can give an “honest” opinion of all things PH and she didn’t steer me wrong in my stay at Alona 42, in my thirty years of world travel I have yet to encounter hospitality on this level, almost like a personal concierge!!!!
Dear Steven, Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We are very delighted to hear that you had a nice, quiet, and relaxing time with us. It was a pleasure having you and we hope to see you again when you're back in Bohol! Gina will of course be notified and she'll definitely amuse when she reads your amazing commends about her. Many thanks and more power! Best Regards, Alona42 Team
Four of us (2 adults, 2 nine year old children) stayed in an apartment at Alona 42 for six nights. The one bedroom apartment was well equipped with a gas 3 burner cooktop, refrigerator , complete with dishes /cutlery for four, good quality pots and pans. Aircon in the bedroom (also a table fan), ceiling fans in both the the living room and kitchen/dining area. Very large balcony with line and clips for drying swim gear etc. Alona Beach is a 10 minute walk from the Resort but do take a flashlight if walking back from the beach if the sun has gone down. The Resort's grounds are pleasant ...grassed and treed. The staff are very helpful; there is a small roofed cafe area for breakfast and other modest meals.....breakfast can be brought to one's room. The place (and our room) is well kept up. We had an excellent stay there and recommend it.. If you want to swim in a pool, one is available at the next door resort for a charge....that resort has a full; service (Italian +) restaurant.
Good for price”
This hotel was quite nice the location is good if you want to be away from the nightlife the beach is close but a quieter area you have to walk down a bit for restaurants and bars etc. We only got bottled water the first night we were there and our room wasn't made up a couple of times I wouldn't order food in their restaurant as its really not very good. We hired a bike from them at 600 a day but it comes from another company so it might be worth looking down the road also we booked the ferry to bohol through them and reception told us it included luggage but it didn't and also their taxi to the ferry port is 400 but if you walk up the road you can get. It for 300
Nice and Clean. No hair Dryer in the room but can borrow from reception. Alona beach is 10-15mins Walk from the resort. If you dun wanna Walk there is tricycle to Alona beach with 100peso, reach in 3mins. Staffs are friendly. You can book the day tour from the resort if u want. The price is same with outside.
Budget-friendly Stay in Panglao”
The location is away from beachfront, but the property is fully equipped and staffs are helpful. The pool is under construction during our stay. Overall, great value for your money for a budget stay in Panglao. Definitely, we'll come back to this property soon.

Neat and tidy and very confortable”
It was a really good experience with comfortable environment. The resort is extremely neat and tidy and the toilet is good. The garden is also beautiful . Staff there are very helpful with the arrangement of our day tour. However the resort is quite far away from the pier but it's close to the beach when using shortcut. The water heater is not strong enough so that we always have to take a cold water bath. Overall very good for this resort!
Great place to base yourself in Alona Beach”
The rooms are spotless and are very well maintained. Fan and aircon in the room. Bottled water replaced every day. Comfortable beds. The staff are very friendly and helpful and there's a small restaurant serving drinks and food all day. The location could be considered "excellent" if you want to be away from the louder parts of Alona beach. To get to the bar & restaurant area you need to walk 10 minutes. But there are other places to eat close by. To get to the beach, you only need to walk 5 minutes to the opposite end of the beach from the main resorts. It's also quieter here and the water is less crowded. Highly recommended.
Amazing place with lovely personel”
We had a lovely stay. It is very clean and calm there. Only few bungalows in the garden and about 3minutes walk to the best beach in panglao. Definately would stay again. Loved it there!!
Cute hotel/ nice staff”
The hotel (resort style) is very cute and well manteined. They are building a pool, that will add even more value. It's in a quiet area, what means you need to walk/ get transport to the busy and crazy Alona Strip (we didn't mind the walk). They should include a little fruit bowl in the breakfast and real coffee (not instant, please!). Staff is very friendly :)
