nice stay in panglao
really nice resort, friendly staff
we stayed for one week at panglao bluewater during the christmas holiday and really enjoyed our stay. the resort feels clean and the staff is friendly. they also offer a good deal of things to do and although it costs a bit more then it does down at alona beach it feels like you get value for money. for example we went on a day-trip around bohol which was almost 3 times as expensive as down at alona. but the difference really was notable. everything was included in the price including lunch, a guide and a driver, entrance fees and much more. compare that to hiring a driver for a day where you pay for everything else separate, which means you will still end up paying alot more then you thought from the start. the only complaints i can think of is getting to and from the hotel. the road really isnt very good and walking down to alona beach either includes a treck along the water line where there isnt really anything but a small dirt trail or walking along the "main" road which is nothing more then a gravel road with alot of pot holes filled with water during the time when we were there. over all though, a really nice resort which i can recommend to other families wanting to visit bohol and panglao.

lovely environment, not good location
te hotel is new, room is big, staff are friendly.
the room is spacious and clean. the staffs are friendly. the swimming pool is very nice. the food in the restaurant is just so so. the location is far from anywhere. there is no beach. it is hard to find a taxi and hotel transportation are expensive. if you want a peaceful and quiet place this is a good choice.

Nice hotel, friendly staff, 4-star price
Two outdoor pools
Booked for double bed and turned out all rooms are twin beds (unless you book a villa) and the bed was a bit small I have to say. Swimming pools are very nice, staff was super friendly and helpful. Food was alright from the menu, but breakfast wasn't quite up to the standard given the price. It's more a family resort than a romantic one, so if you're planning a relaxing holiday with your partner there, try very hard to ignore the screaming kids. No spa is available. Was under the illusion that there's one... Very disappointed. Had a massage there, which was decent, but not sure lying outdoor with no screen or any sort of privacy was ideal for anyone - not to mention the ants that beat me on my face...

Nice facilities, friendly staff, bit of a gouge
Stylish, functional bathroom; nice pools
The first view of this resort is of a huge, inviting pool (8am to 8pm). The rooms are reasonable in size, stylistically designed, and the bathroom is one of the best I’ve seen among resorts, with natural light and river rocks around the bath that give it that island feel – liked the rain forest shower too. A fairly soft mattress on a flat board without a box spring offers little give and so that meant frequent tosses and turns yielding less than optimal sleep. (The pile driver at the adjacent resort construction site precluded a restful weekday afternoon nap, but presumably that will go away after several months or a year or so.) The thatched roof covering adds to that island feel in what would otherwise be a very modern motel design. It’s a 3-4 minute walk to the beach side restaurant along a lighted gravel walkway, and there’s golf cart delivery if the walk grows old. The dining room is also modern and spacious with high ceilings and air circulation fans. The menu is varied with something for most tastes, albeit a bit pricey. (There are other options around, but not really in walkable distance down a gravel road; certainly not at night.) Sadly, the wine menu is a real gouge, however, with most bottles ranging from Pesos 1,800-3,000, including some you’d only pay Pesos 500 for in a grocery store. No matter – they had none of five Australian white wines anyway, for example. (Plus they advised on arrival that no food or beverages may be carried in without a “corkage” charge, a sure sign of a “gotcha” pricing mentality, though this info was nowhere on their website.) A second pool (8am-10pm) and another massage site (there’s also one near the entrance for the voyeurs among us; prices were 3 to 5 times regular city prices and ours were just average in quality) overlooks the nearby seafront. Several thatched cabanas invite sun worshippers and relaxing readers. More below.

Nice amenities but not good beach shore...
Good rooms
This hoel is very popular so we chose to stay here... they have good amenities but the beach is really disappointing. When we saw the Alona beach resorts, we wadmitted that we made a bad choice for this trip...

Great rooms, but still not a 5 star hotel
Pool was lovely and restaurant was good for the Philippines
loved the bathtub and shower, but still lacking in the quality of a 4-5 star hotel. if we had paid full price i would have been very disappointed, but since we got 40% it was okay.

One of the best resort in Bohol
very clean swimming pool, spacious rooms, clean bathrooms,
We found the resort awesome and was very happy with the welcoming staff. After a tiresome, sweaty but enjoyable Bohol countryside tour we were greeted with a very friendly staff and served with complimentary calamansi juice and fresh cold face towels. then we were ushered to our room which was so clean, spacious and romantic. Food was very good though a bit expensive. The swimming pool were so clean.
