    A truly unique experience in a tranquil beautiful setting ”

    We stayed for 3 nights with our extended families. The villas are beautifully decorated. The restaurant has a great view of the ocean. The complimentary breakfast was excellent everything made fresh. The pool was beautiful and never crowded. The resort also offers free shuttle service to Alona beach which was very convenient. The private beach area was absolutely stunning! Loved our stay!

    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.

    Dear boree, Greetings! Thank you for taking time to leave us a great review. 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.

    Overall 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.

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.

    Weekend at the Family Villa”

    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.

    Dear Diana, Thank you for taking time to write us a review. It was our absolute pleasure setting up a garden picnic for your husband. We have a lot of creatives in our team, and we are delighted every time we get requests for a special setup. It is nice to hear that you enjoyed your vacation and thank you for allowing us to be a part of it. 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. Please do send us a message when you have plans to return. We would be delighted to have you back. Warm Regards, Herve Martin Resort Manager

Lage ist ca.5 Minuten vom alona beach by shuttle-dieser fährt kostenlos und mehrfach am Tag.

    除了騎馬和SPA不錯以外,其他都讓人很不滿意”

    首先是由於工作需求,必須要有網路,但入住第一晚網路就很不穩,第二天直接完全連結不上,處理到隔天才用好,還是我們打電話狂問才派人來處理。 第二就是第二晚的時候下大雨,不但停電房子還漏水,以這個價錢來說住宿品質實在有待加強。 最後是退房時有請villa幫忙訂車到港口讓我們搭船,車子居然遲到快20分鐘,讓我們真的是在最後一刻才換完船票登船。原本這些我們都覺得算了,直到回來台灣以後才發現villa已經把搭車的費用列進帳單裡,但卻沒有跟我們說,明細還是我們當下跟他們要才給,導致我們在不知情的狀況下,下車時又給了司機800peso,對方也就這樣收下了,寫信給villa卻石沉大海,雖然只是小錢,但真的讓人感覺很不好。
