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.
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.
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!
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
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
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.
Good base for exploring Bohol Island. Rooms facing the street are noisy though. Staff is super friendly and helpful. Optional breakfast is very good and cheap. Television with good channels was a plus.
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!
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.
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.
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.
I have booked this separately for my sister and his parter. They've been placed in a very nice spot with wide window. But still AC was not too cold. And flush at the bowl was not good too. Very friendly staff.
Room was quite big for 2pax, but the shower was really not good due to low pressure. Also aircon is not that cold. But TV and fridge was impressing. They even provided us extension wire because they only have 3 sockets for your electric needs. Few choices of free breakfast too, it's platted btw. We have to arrange airport transfer from them with charge. Instead of they could've offered it for free, adding the fact that it's near from airport anyway. Staff are hospitable and friendly. They've suggested local spots where you can have a cheaper meal.
The most terrible hotel I’ve ever stayed !”
Very damn dirty ! aircon dripping ! dim lights like a cave ! smelly swamp then the toilet bowl don’t flush , toilet basin smells sewage ! dirty floor , itchy bed ! tasteless foods ! the staff is okay but the only thing is hotel stay overall is very disappointing ! I will never recommend this place and will never go back there again! I regretted there are lots of better hotels to stay in ! Not this kind of hotel very very dirty and smelly !
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.
After I checked out the hotel, I lost my cellphone in tricycle. So I came back there and ask staff. The owner of hotel tried to ask all of the tricycle driver in Bohol and tried to find my cellphone. The staff cheered me. Unfortunately I couldn't find it but I was very happy because they efforted to search it for me. Also they told me how to get to Panglao and caught the tricycle. And the breakfast was nice. I appriciate for their kindness. Next time I visit to Bohol, I want stay here again. Salamat.
Good location for all needs”
Bit dated but good all round facilities
