              We enjoyed our stay a lot! My daughter loved her pony ride experience. The family villa is very spacious, its really for a family. The resort is well maintained despite the downturn in the tourism industry. Physical distancing wont be a problem because at 7.5hectares in area and with each villa well separated, Im sure you will find your own private place and space during the entire length of your stay.

              The villa is really good, we had a blast! I haven't heard birds calling in early morning in ages, without any other noise. It's really quiet at night, definitely a good choice if you want to get away from city lives. We all wish we could stay longer for this holiday. However the paths to this villa is quite rough, and it's a bit far from Alona beach. But they provide free shuttle buses to Alona beach, one shift every 2 hours, you will see the timetable at reception. This is our favorite one out of all hotels we stayed on the trip. Overall is excellent!

              I and my daughter are happy to stay in Donatela. Nice cozy ambience, good cuisine, friendly and efficient service... feels at home immediately. Love the nature setting, seeing different species like gecko and different kinds of frogs, waking up in the morning by the sound of chirping birds, watching the horses and ponies grazing the grass, enjoying the sight of the humble fishermen in their boats by the cliff of Paprika restaurant. Nice local/exotic fruit bearing trees. Well maintained surroundings. Nice accommodations of Ifugao inspired villas. Well thought of designs of the villas, very detailed.. May be few distance away from the Alona Beach but was all worth it... The price of menu in Paprika is competitive to the ones offered along Alona Beach, so worth the gastronomic experience. Quality cuisine at competitive price (to Alona Beach front restaurants) It is where we will stay the next we visit Bohol.

              Donatela hotel is good. It has big park, and customer has thier own House. But the location is a little bit far from main beach, and main market. If you want to stay at only your Hotel, It is really good for you. But If you want to enjoy Bohol, I don't know.. It's good or not.

I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the botanical garden in the middle of our property, as well as the hotel in general. The resort is mostly known for privacy and exclusivity, while being centrally located in Panglao. We are not located in Alona Beach, where most of the tourists flock to, but we do have regular shuttles to bring our guests to and from our property. The shuttle will take 10 to 15 minutes to the main beach and the main area. We appreciate your kind words and sincerely hope to see you again in the near future.

              Stayed here for 4d3n this Holy Week weekend at their Family villa with our kids. Requested for a garden picnic setup as surprise bday welcome for my husband and they executed it very well. Love that each villa has its own private garden where we did our Easter egg hunt with the kids. Daily breakfast offerings were delicious. Resort is well maintained, rooms are spacious and the beds are super comfy! (Insect repellants are a must though) Smaller villas had their own pools but our 2 bedroom villa didn’t have one, maybe put a bathtub at least? Anyway, kids enjoyed meeting the mini zoo residents, swimming in the pool and overall we had a lovely stay.

We have a lot of creatives in our team, and we are delighted every time we get requests for a special setup.

We are continuing to find solutions for insects in the property and we have greatly reduced it since last year. We also suggest to try the pool villa aside from the family villa. We have one pool villa and one family villa that are facing each other, so big families can get both rooms and they would have their own private pool.

              Pros: Suites are fabulous. Well kept and all around first class. Cons: No beach, restaurant is sub par, no refreshments at the pool, very difficult to get a smile from the staff (especially at the restaurant).

              Dear Christopher, Greetings! Thank you for taking time to write us a review. We deeply apologize for the service mishaps and we've taken note of your comments and are working on it especially on the Food and Beverage side. We have a small cove just in front of the restaurant, when you walk down the stairs by the cliff face. We try to be as transparent as possible, especially when conversing or emailing with guests, explaining that the cove has a small beach not to be compared to the huge beaches in Dumaluan or Alona. We do apologize that your expectations were not met and hope that you consider us for your next trip in Bohol. Please contact me directly via email if you plan to return so I can personally arrange for everything. Warm Regards, Herve Martin Resort Manager

              Un séjour fantastique dans un lieu qui vaut vraiment le prix. Luxe, calme et sérénités . Les habitations sont très belles, bien intégrées dans un jardin qui nous déconnecte du monde bruyant de Alina pour nous ramener à l’essentiel de la nature
