          Very nice resort with a few unusable rooms (warning)”

          Alona Vida Beach Resort, in my opinion, is a very nice place to stay. It is made with a great taste, clean well kept environment with plants and trees, beautifully decorated, lovely swimming pool, clean and nice rooms, the most expensive rooms are beautiful and luxurious. It is also a place where a guest doesn’t get bored, it has diving activities and a bar with music that I personally enjoyed, great music performed by great musicians. However, this resort has a “but”. It is a few standard rooms that are located in the first building closest to the bar and the beach. It is not the resort’s fault that these rooms are unusable. A neighbouring restaurant installed a monstrous exhaust fan and large gas bombs (my guess) right next to the windows of Alona Vida’s standard rooms, these create unbearable continuous noise. I was told by the receptionist that the noise lasts until 10 p.m., however I found guest’s reviews on other travel websites claiming the noise goes on all night (I can not confirm). This noise is something ear plugs will not help you with. As I mentioned, this situation is not the fault of Alona Vida Beach Resort, but it is not a guest’s fault either, and guests, in my opinion, should not be accommodated in these standard rooms (room 10 - which I was given, and all rooms next to this one) until the resort finds a solution to this situation. The standard rooms are pretty and well equipped, it is a pity they are devalued by this industrial installment at this moment. I can not say whether the resort knows about this problem and still puts people in these rooms for quite big money, or they do not know, however the reviews on other travel websites are warning not to book these standard rooms. Before booking Alona Vida’s room I read Agoda’s reviews and visitors mentioned noise from the bar at night, but this is really not the problem, the music stops quite early and the resort was really quiet most of the night. With any other noises, ear plugs will help. Not wi

          Lively, clean and very friendly resort directly on the beach. ”

          We stayed for 5 days here as a group of 12 people over Christmas 2016 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms are big, nicely decorated and have the latest air conditioning which are very quiet. The bathroom was also very modern and shower was always hot at any time of the day. The hotel location is perfect if you want to be right on the beach and close to all the bars and restaurants. The Coco Vida bar has live music every night until around midnight and the food is also very good there. The staff at the Alona Vida were always very helpful and polite often going the extra mile to make us feel welcome. The resort is kept spotlessly clean and the small swimming pool is in a shaded area if you want to escape from the sun on beach. I would highly recommend the Alona Vida Beach resort to anyone visiting Bohol and wanting to stay at Alona beach.

          Very nice hotel right on the beach”

          rooms, location, pool

          I stayed at the Alona Vida Beach Resort with my girlfriend and Dad for a week. The staff were very nice and helpful. They were able to set up airport pick for us and ferry pickup for my Dad. My Dad booked the room but my girlfriend and I arrived a few hours before he did. They said it was no problem to get us a room first which was obviously a great start. We got two first floor rooms across from each other so that was nice for meeting up with my Dad. The rooms are comfortable and nicer than the online pictures. Bed is nice, things are newer, good water pressure, plenty of room, mini fridge. TV is old and small but you're on the beach! Beautiful beachfront and the pool was great and we used it every night. Alona Beach is not huge. So although it is towards the eastern end of the beach, it doesn't take long to walk to most of the restaurants, bars, shops, etc. And dive shop right next door. Restaurant was ok. Some dishes were very good, some were very average. And compared to other places on Alona Beach, it was rather expensive. Was really surprised how the prices went up and down just walking 1-2 minutes on the beach. If on a budget, definitely look around for food.

          We stayed at Alona Vida Beach Resort for 3D2N, The room is spacious and clean, I actually didn’t expect that because it’s actually small in pictures. Location is conveniently in front if the beach and there are a lot of restaurants to choose from. My favorite is the free breakfast, in which, servings are very generous. Some of the staffs are nice and friendly while some are unapproachable, but that’s okay. We’ll definitely book this resort again if we will visit Bohol soon.

          We wanted a hotel just in front of Alona beach. Alona Vida was just perfect! They have a restaurant, too. Food was okay. Not sure if there is a live band that plays there every night but there was one during the nights we were there. The family room we got was perfect as well- 2 big adjoining rooms. The rooms are farther inside so we were able to rest. And the customer service we got was beyond expectations. The staff accommodated our request for an early check-in and arranged a seaport pick-up for us. They also arranged our island hopping and land tours. When we requested for our free breakfast to be packed as we were leaving the hotel very early for the island hopping, they did as we requested. Just perfect! We will definitely go back there again! Thank you so much, Alona Vida!

At that same time one of our Friend injured his leg the staff was very kind and fast to offer first aid to my Friend. We so grateful and feel great staying in Alona Vida resorts.

          Close proximity to the beach, great food, friendly and attentive staff

          Our family immensely enjoyed our stay at Alona Vida Beach Resort. The room we stayed in was comfortable, the bathroom was satisfactory. The housekeeper made sure it was cleaned every day during our 4-day stay there and we were given fresh towels on a daily basis as well. The food may be a bit pricey but the taste and portion justify the cost. My kids loved that the swimming pool, although small,was just a few steps away from the room. We loved that we could eat breakfast right on the beach. One area for improvement would be the shower curtains in the room. Longer curtains will help lessen splash of water outside the shower area.

          Alona Vida Beach resort was lovely. We had previously been in quite quiet and isolated resorts so this was a good constrast with lively bars and restaurants to have dinner on the beach. The room was clean and comforting, and the aircon was good too. The manager greeted us as we checked in and let us know to ask him for any help. The security guard also was very helpful and set us up with tours and transfers to the airport! The pool was inside the resort away from the hustle and bustle of the beach, and nice to relax at. We loved staying here!

          Friendly staff, big clean rooms, just a few steps from the beach

          This was our second time with Alona Vida and it was just how we remembered it. The staff remembered us the minute we checked in, even our names! If you like western food, they have a wide variety of that. They make the best pancakes which goes well with their freshly brewed italian coffee. Very nice location as it is just a few steps away from the beach. If you are into diving, SeaExplorers is there to assist you. Rooms are spacious, my favorite is room A4 (up on the second floor by the pool side). It is far enough to drown the band/bar music if you wish to have an early night, but near enough to join the party again if you change your mind. Bathroom is clean although the shower area is a bit tight but manageable. Fresh towels are given everyday and you can request extras if you needed more to carry to the beach. Wifi is a bit touch and go during the night but great in the mornings. All in all, alona vida is great for your beach holiday. easy, and affordable.

          It was a very nice hotel, very clean, friendly staff and the manager was Austrian which probably contributed to the hotel's cleanliness. I had asked for a room upstairs which had a nice balcony overlooking the beautiful tropical garden and pool. The only negative thing I can think of was that the restaurant of the hotel was rather expensive when compared to the many restaurants and eateries along the beach. Apart from that, I would definitely come back. Keep up the good work Alona Vida Beach Resort!

          Beach front and in the middle of Nightlife.”

          Alona Vida is located at beachfront, about a minute walk from van drop-off. Rooms are spacious (we were on family room) and noticeably clean, also the staffs are friendly and accomodating. Thanks to the manager (German) who is always visible in monitoring staff performance and hotel cleanliness. Our room is very near the swimming pool, the kids enjoyed it and so are the parents. The nightlife in Alona is very exciting, starts at 530pm where beachfront hotels starts to arrange tables and chairs at the beach where tourists starts to have snacks, dinner and drinks. It was truly an unforgettable vacation, almost similar to boracay beach setup. Will definitely recommend this hotel and will stay here again if ever we visit bohol again.

          Beachfront Relaxation”

          Alona Vida is a perfectly located and a well managed beach front resort. Great restaurant and bar with live music until 11 pm or so. My room was one of the rooms closest to the restautant, bar, and music lounge yet I did not find the noise level bothersome. Other than the security check upon check out to ensure I did not steal any coat hangers or remove the batteries from the remote control, most of the traditional Filipino hotel annoyances were non-existent: plenty of toilet paper, the room is cleaned every day, the mini bar is stocked (and the refrigerator is actually plugged in), plenty of electrical outlets to charge your gear, the split level air conditioning unit was quiet and efficient, several controllable lighting features illuminate the room to your desired level. I am a scuba professional but I did not use their dive shop because instructor discount was not offered. Yet there were at least 6 other dive shops a stone's throw away from the resort. I would stay here again.

          Location, staff, food

          I really enjoyed my short stay at Alona Vida Beach Resort. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The bar had a nice selection of fish dishes with vegetables. There is a band that plays in the bar every night. They are pretty good, but either the sound system doesn't work very well or the band is over using some sort of compressor. Sometimes bar patrons get up to sing some songs. I suspect this is an extension of the karaoke culture of the Philippines, as the guest singers sing very out-of-tune versions of the latest bad pop songs. Generally the band seems bored from playing the same standards every night.

          The location of alona vida is great. It is in the center of alona beach. Next to Hennan, this is the second best beach front resort in Alona beach. But unlike with Hennan, its price is lower and affordable. My expectation was exceeded. I never thought the room we get (deluxe)is great. It has ref with drinks for sale, hot and cold shower, tv with cable, cabinet, dim lights, CR with videt, splitter aircon, and strong signal of wifi. Also, it has a bar and you can charge your consumed foods to your room.

          Alona Vida is such a nice hotel with an even greater customer service. I made a request for a very special occasion and they exceeded way beyond my expectations. It was just overwhelming! Other than that, the courteousness of their staff (everywhere) is just a game changer. Their pool is just amazing - I can’t sense any chemical in it. The restaurant serves great food as well and the hotel is just in front of the beach. If anything, our only challenge is getting to the hotel itself - had to walk a couple of minutes on sand which can be a bit challenging if you have a luggage with you. Other than that, the place is perfect, and a great value for money indeed. Would definitely consider it on my return to Bohol.

We stayed in other hotels in Cenu city, but those had so weak water pressure that it took long time to wash my hair. The room was clean and tropically decorated. The hotel located center of Alona beach, so we had a lot of choice for where to eat each meals. We didn't have any meals at this hotel, so I don't know how it is. I really can recommend this hotel.

          Great location right on the beach! Nice pool too, we usually used it to cool off after dinner. Rooms were cleaned every day, fresh towels, mini bar restock. We stayed in a deluxe room at the back (request a 'quiet room' to be away from the restaurant and band at night). The restaurant wasn't the best and a bit pricey, but we still snacked/ordered beach front cocktails and beer occasionally. There are many more to choose from as the location is super central. Make sure you remind the reception if you have an airport transfer, and settle your bill the night before as the process is slow (island time!). WiFi was great for a few days, hit and miss for the rest. Would definitely stay at Alona Vida again :-)

We had booked some diving with Sea Explorers, located on site, which also provided a great, friendly and professional service. When not diving we were relaxing on the beach trying the extensive cocktail menu. One of the best holidays we have had in a while.
