I am from Australia. I stayed for 6 nights. Excellent. Great room, good aircon, wonderful staff, good breakfast included. Definately one of the best value for money hotels i have stayed at. I will be returning here.
Very good and flexible service. Good value for the money and close to everything. We come back here time after time.
Great service and comfortable stay!”
We enjoyed our stay at El Portal Inn so much that we stayed an extra night before taking a boat ride back to Cebu. The staff were very professional, friendly and kind. The room was clean and had a good amount of space. We were able to order breakfast in bed which was also very convenient. I recommend it to any traveler and would stay here again.
Very good accommodation at island Bohol,”
Very good accommodation at island Bohol, the staff is really fine, and really friendly. Accommodation is located near the harbor, motorbike rentals are nearby, so this is the perfect choice for exploring Bohol
We booked this last minute, and mainly enjoyed our stay because of the wonderfully friendly staff :) Location is within walking distance of the port, which makes this a good base for the chocolate hills and tarsier sanctuary. Facilities were decent. WiFi was better than most of these reviews suggest!
we checked in late bec we’re not able to ride the last trip going home so we have to stay nearby the port. The location was great bec its near the port. The receptionist was really great and accomodating when we arrived the hotel, she’s able to understand pur concerns and explained why they can’t provide our request. However, we dont like the other staff i think he’s the bellman or roomboy bec he always interrupts to our conversation and couldnt understand our concerns. He’s talking as if he knows everything. He said that if we transfer to another hotel we will be wasting our time where in fact, we always have other choice bec we can still book online, if only we don’t have kids with us, we will certainly do that but our kids were sleeping already so we decided to just stay and not look for other place. he even told us not to change the aircon temp because he already set it up. The refrigerator inside was empty. No shampoos and soaps provided. there were ants too. I would not recommend this to families esp if they travel with kids.we checked in at around 9pm and checked out early, around 5am.
They made our stay more meaningful”
I just forgot the names of the wonderful persons we met in El Portal Inn, from May 14 to 16 2019, they are so gracious, accommodating and all smiles. Will definitely recommended this place to our friends and colleagues.
Staff were nice. breakfast was good conviniant. Closer to the port than town center There is marcella supermarket near. Old airport nearby is closed now due to panglao airport opening. Nice basic hotel. Would stay again
Good value and nice staff”
Good location in the heart of Tagbilaran and the desk girl was very nice as was the rest of the staff...very helpful, unfortunately I wanted to book a second night but they were full. Nice tasting free breakfast and a good place to stay.
Amazing people! ”
The staff goes out of their way to fulfill your every need, they have a nice little restaurant with very affordable and good local food. Great location. We left our bags there for a couple of days and it was as safe as it gets. We stayed here twice and would definitely come again!
Great Place Near Tagbilaran Port”
We booked this hotel as we need a place near the port, this is like 3 minutes away to the port (via Tricycle - since its hot day we took Tricycle) we paid like 20 pesos for the ride. Very basic room, bed, towels, TV, private bathroom, the staff - very accommodating. We encountered slight issue with the air-condition, it took time to get it going so we had to request for electric fan, but overall experience it is good for the money you paid for.
2 days in Bohol ”
Very clean and comfortable room in a residential area of Bohol. Near to a large supermarket and a Jeepney terminal. A good breakfast was included in the price and staff were happy to serve it at 6:00 am on our request. The wifi was a little patchy but that was attended to immediately. Location was far from decent restaurants and the area catered more for locals than tourists. Overall the hotel was very good and I would certainly recommend it. The bus that goes to the new Panglao airport is just a short Jeepney ride away. Bus fares to the new airport were 50 peso per person and it is a 30 minute bus trip.
Fantastic Hotel! 10+ Rating”
This is a really spectacular hotel! It is close to the Port, close to the airport, and close to shopping! Cleaner than you ever expected; Well managed, well maintained, friendly, yet professional staff, each and every staff member is attentive, constantly striving to fulfill your slightest need. Located in a very nice area of Tagbilàran, Bohol, Philippines, this hotel truly has 24/7 security guards and a 24/7 fully functioning and staffed Front Desk. We spent the entire week of October 13, 2018 at this hotel, the El Portal Inn. Breakfast, both the included with the room and the regularly available breakfast we're very good. This hotel is great for couples, singles, families, and for business groups and meetings. If you can, try to get the bigger Deluxe Queen Bed, Windowed, room. However, all the rooms are good. I am an American on extended vacation in the Philippines with NO prior relationship with this hotel or any staff member I also have never before posted a hotel review. The El Portal Inn impressed me that much to make me want to share my pleasant hotel experience.
Nice guy staff serving food for breakfast”
I will check some other inn / hotel when I comes back to Tagbilaran Bohol. One guy staff that is serving food is nice and kind. Facilities needs some repairs. There are cracks on the wall, the door knob has corrosion and not in good condition, old aircon that will take time to let your room be cooled, for toiletries only one soap was provided (we are two in that room), no shampoo & conditioner provided (they're selling it the receptionist said). Suggestion: Why not include the cost for this little basic needs in your accommodation cost.
Best hotel staff”
Staff are very professional, helpful and respectful.
The staff are kind and polite. The location is a little disappointing. There are no restaurants near by. However, there is a restaurant and room service at the Inn.
One of the best hotel we stayed in the Philippines”
Staff extremely nice and helpful Food at the restaurant is quite cheap and very good Room is clean, big and AC works very well. It is also quiet
Helpful Staff and Value for Money”
Spacious room with strong hot shower . Breakfast is simple but delicious. I like the pancakes with brewed coffee. The front desk girl is very informative and helpful. She gave us many useful informations about Bohol and helped us to grab a tricycle to Panglao with "Local Price"!!!
10 mins walk from the port. Clean, comfortable room. Slightly noisy from the street, but really not much. Wifi generally good. Staff offered to clean the room each day. Impressed with the breakfast, very good and flexible on time. Can offer Bohol tours too. Staff speak good English and are helpful.
