Nice quiet resort away from Alona”
Great little resort, great staff, nice pool, loungers & shade for reading at beach & pool. The restaurant is also good. We had a bungalow room with a king bed, fridge, kettle, safe, enclosed shower, AC, very nice room. Large wrap around deck with sliding doors into the room. Another resto down the street & a little shop/bakery for sweet items, beverages & snacks. Away from the busier Alona Beach so a trike or long walk if you want more. If you want a quiet relaxing place, this is it.
Especially taking into the consideration for the price this is a great spot. It is a 100php trike ride from Alona beach and the perk of that it is quiet! They have a small private beach with hammocks, chairs and bean bags. Just be aware of low tide as that can make swimming a little hard. The perk of low tide is that you can walk along the beach to other resorts if you are tired of the food at the restaurant. The staff are all great and helpful and the poolside is nice. You can even get a massage in your room! The standard room is simple but nice and the wifi reaches the rooms. The shower is a little small and the shower curtain could be changed is the only reason for a 4 star on cleanliness but that's pretty common near the ocean.
Nice, quiet place.”
Pros: Nice and quiet. Clean swimming pool. I had a view of the beach from my bedroom. Friendly staff and clean rooms. Mosquito repellant available. Cons: Lots of mosquitos. Beach seems to be permanently low tide. Takes 100 pesos to go to Alona Beach where everything is at if you don't want to walk about 3 kilometers due to being in a tourist area (for a tricycle).
Lovely place to stay close to Alona beach ”
Love this resort, stayed there twice now. Excellent value, friendly atmosphere, helpful staff. Close to the bars and restaurants of Alona beach. The resort will even be reopening its bar soon after renovations. Has its own stretch of lovely white beach, but not so good for swiming off due to shallow depth of the water. Good place to chill by the pool and has a pool side Jacuzzi. Love the place love the staff. Can't say more!
We stayed here for our 3rd anniversary and we enjoyed it. The place is clean and the staff are accommodating.
Excellent place to relax !!!”
The hotel is clean and the staff is super friendly. I had a great time, I was able to enjoy the pool that is was super clean. The food on the restaurant is good and love the huge omelette with the great coffee. The place is quite at night perfect for resting. Is you need to go to Alona Beach you will have to take a tricycle or rent a bike for the whole day for only $7.00 outside the hotel, Alona Beach is just 5 min riding . The hotel has a beach front but is no good for swimming. They have an Amazing Team for Diving the diver instructor is super friendly.
The beach was so ugly (it means its not white and a lot of big stones) if you want a nice/white beach this hotel is not for you. Swimming Pool was just ok not so big. The room was nice and small just good for 2 persons and 1 child but I requested for additional bed for 1 person (750php). There was a lot of mosquito in the room which is not great because I have my son with me. The water was slow especially when using a shower. They don't have free coffee inside the room and kettle but I requested for a kettle because I need it for my son. There TV signal was not good also. Wifi was ok also. Staff's are accommodating and friendly I would give 5 stars for them. If you are up to BOHOL TOUR then these place is good for you because you will not be staying in the hotel for the whole day.
Good dive shop. Mediocre resort. ”
This place has issues. If you are here for diving it’s mostly great. But the grounds and everything else are just wonky. The beach in front of the resort is totally filthy. Most resorts send people out to clean up the beaches every morning. Not this one, though the beach is pretty much muck to the water, during low tide. There are a ton of mosquitos at night. Half the bulbs in our room were out. The lighting in the room was otherwise way too dark. The shower didn’t drain so we had days of standing water sitting stagnant in the shower. The shower head was just a handle sitting on the ground. Check in was buried in the restaurant, so when you first enter you are pretty much wandering around some rooms still under construction wondering if the place is even staffed. There is some sort of abandoned bar between the restaurant and dive shop that doesn’t seem to serve any purpose. They could use some chairs near the pool that aren’t lounge chairs, that you can actually sit up in. Most of their issues really wouldn’t be difficult to fix, but it definitely feels like a lot of things are sorta half-assed (besides the dive shop, which is again is great).
Upon arrival it seemed we are at wrong place, but it was just new color on buildings, from orange on the photos it was turquoise instead. Nice. We got our rooms fast and stuff delivered to rooms. Room itself was a bit small but enought to be in. Nice cute small i think 24" inch tv on the wall. A/c and fan on the ceiling. Latter did not seem to work, but a/c did so i did not care. Room seems to get some mosquitos in due slight openings in window frames and while keeping door open just a moment. I would suggest removal of broken fan and replacing it with mosquito net for the bed area. Toilet/Shower floor is very good, most places I visit have very slippery when wet, but this was opposite and very safe to walk on. Water pressure was non existant, and in shower temp was a bit tricky to set, so i usually took coldly shower instead of trying to get it nice. Our boy decided to break one glass lamp shade with throwing of pillow, which ended costing 3500php, which seemed a bit rip-off just being a small shade (next to bed as night lamp). I wonder how much cost if all of the lamp. I would suggest to put predefined price list of items, so it would not end up in bad feeling. We of course paid, we broke it but handling the issue was really non professional. Considering price of the room per night as well... Anyway we took a boat trip to near by islands, be adviced that noise from boat engine is big and loud, so bring ear protection. Also getting off the boat maybe a bit dangerous, if you need to walk from "nose of the boat" instead of stairs. We had two people tripping and getting bruises. There is also option to use South Palms Resort facilities, except the pool if you stay here, costs around 200php one way with tricycle to get there. Tricycle from resort to alona is 100php, walking works too, but road is dark. This resort has nice pool as well with sunbeds. Also the restaurant has menu for most tastes. A bit hard for vegetarians, but not impossible. They had some
Total relaxation, great food, amazing staff”
The beach is not the greatest but we didn't mind since they have a very big pool. It was also a few minutes walk to Alona beach. The resort was very relaxing to stay at. We really felt like we are on a vacation. The food was also amazing, worth the price! The staff were the friendliest and accommodating, too!
Friendly Staff and Great room! ”
We originally booked one night for our anniversarry, but after visiting alona beach which is near to the accomodation, we decided to extend one more day. They even offered us to check first in agoda to be more cheaper and luckily theres available rooms for the nextday and they managed to give us same room we have and even cleaned it when we left for our trip. We want to thank you to the guard on shift when we had our motorbike mini accident that helped us and immediately called nurse. Thanks to the friendly frontdesk helped us with everything we need. We didnt swim to the beach because theres no where to swim at its better to go to alona beach. We tried the pool cold at first then its so so. We didnt had the chance to try their food because we wanted to try the restaurants in alona. Overall experience is great. We will recommend you to our friends 😘
Very nice place”
The hotel is nice. Room clean, service available and performant. The team is very sympathetic and competent. A good choice for a mix of activities (diving) and rest (swimming pool), not far from Alona.
Quiet, relaxing place.”
FOOD: Tastes great! They market everyday for the ingredients to make sure it is fresh and of best quality the place can offer. Their menu changes everyday, you may place your order in advance so they can prepare the dish as per request. Its a bit pricey but its worth it, the serving is usually for two :) If you are nice, they also give some freebies ;) ROOMS: Well kept, cool, basic amenities, only that the bathroom gets flooded sometimes especially that its hard to close the shower room door. location of the resort will give you alot of privacy and relaxing atmosphere away from the buzz and noise of the city. STAFFS: i appreciate their hospitality! even the owner and his family are very accommodating. keen to respond to requests and always smiling and trying their best to be of service. the security guard is strict. well, hes doing his job :) when you get in the resort, his job starts, and it ends the moment you step out of the gate---even if you havent checked out yet :)
A lovely home base to see Bohol from”
Everything was lovely and peaceful here. The hotel is wonderfully quiet, serves delicious food and the staff are truly kind and helpful. It's close to lots of good stuff to see and beaches to relax on. Our Deluxe Bungalow was fantastic; the bed was very comfortable and the room so cozy. We had a really comfortable 6 night stay. The hotel arranged a snorkel trip for us, a motorcycle, and a transfer to the harbor. Everything was reasonably priced and always organized and easy. Thanks to Henry and his staff for the terrific stay!
The resort wad very quiet and relaxing. ”
The resort was very peaceful. It was great for a romantic or relaxing getaway. It didn't seem like a party resort of that is what you are looking for. If you want lively night life you can go Alona Beach about 10 minutes away.
I stayed here TWICE”
I had a wonderful time here. I found Bohol Sea Resort listed online, read reviews, and sent an email to the resort directly (I also recommend booking with them directly). I was traveling in the Philippines and wanted to see more. Panglao Island wasn’t too difficult to find. The resort’s information and high reviews online all are correct. Mostly, I was intrigued by the SCUBA diving aspect of it. Emails I sent were answered very quickly! Neil, the manager, answered all my questions. I booked a stay. My first stay was great! Check-in was easy and courteous, the room was quaint and comfortable, and the food was DELICIOUS. Bohol Sea Resort offers SCUBA dives and courses; I chose to earn my Open Water certification as a PADI Scuba Diver. Neil, the instructor, was very patient and knowledgeable, and I went into the program with full confidence that the instruction would be sound. The staff here was also great. Very clean rooms and dining area. The swimming pool was pristine and the bar was comfortable. As stated by other reviewers, this resort is quiet. It was a perfect place to relax, learn SCUBA diving, eat great food, and meet a few new people.
Beautiful resort, great food”
We had a nice stay there. I was looking for something nice that I could book ahead of time. It was one of their less expensive rooms, which some couple might find cramped, but since I live in Asia, I am used to that. Most that stay there are divers. The beach is rocky and not swimable.
good location, value, food, rooms and service”
Really enjoyed the resort's tranquillity. It seems to be primarily visited by European dive groups, but should have a much broader appeal than that. The adjacent beach isn't as nice as those east of Alona, but the resort has a sandy fore-shore shaded by coconut palms, on which to catch some rays without burning to a crisp. Service is friendly with the owner/managers being very hands-on. A good alternative to bohol beach club (which is how I discovered the place).
Peace And Quiet”
a very tranquil resort. if your looking for a little peace and quiet maybe a little romance this is the resort for you. alona beach is not so far. short trike ride or why not use your legs. the walk takes 15 to 20 minutes. if you are lookinf for action then maybe this ismt the place for you. this is a sleepy resort but what i liked was away from the busy tourist spot of alona. i could recommend this resort.
Good hotel, nice people”
Hotel is located on Danao beach, some 5 mins motorcycle ride from Alona. Location is very quiet, so the hotel is the best place for couples which want to stay away from crowds and loud music. But please note that you still have to go to Alona if you want to swim, Danao beach is dried up.
