            Great!”

            This place is wonderful, we will return again anytime. The room was small, but it has everything you need to get away from the crowd. The food was amazing, we didn’t eat anywhere else our entire stay! The barlady makes the best cocktails, and the prices are great. This is a little piece of heaven!

            No negatives”

            Stayed in the dorm room as a solo traveller. Loved everything about this property from the staff to the food and facilities. The property is quiet and relaxing but very accessible by public bus or you can rent a scooter from reception for a reasonable price. Great to have the ability to fill up my water bottle with filtered water instead of buying more plastic and and restaurant provides stainless steel straws rather than plastic. Would definitely stay here again. Compared to the craziness of Panglao and Alona Beach, I much preferred this laidback atmosphere.

            Relaxing riverside retreat”

            I stayed in one of the beautifully furnished suites which had lots of space, a great outdoor bathroom, and a lovely balcony overlooking rice fields. While there's no A/C, a fan is provided and sufficient as the cottage is fairly cool once the sun goes down. The food and drinks in the restaurant are delicious and the staff always friendly, some even making a point to call me by name. Relaxing in the hammocks by the emerald green river was bliss. I enjoyed the background noise of the village by day and the animals by night. I would recommend Fox & Firefly to anyone visiting Bohol and would certainly stay here again.

            Nice setting, very clean and you can see fireflies even in the garden of the hotel itself. Stand up paddle activity is fun. Location is easy to find, can just take jeepney from Taglibaran for P27 per person and ask to be dropped off at Loboc market, walk for 10 mins from the main road. Many mosquitos so insect repellent will be very useful. The outdoor toilet and shower room is very exotic and cool.

            Very basic accommodation in standard double room with no aircon. Especially basic shared bathroom with outdoor shower and toilet. Expensive price relative to other accommodation of the same standard in The Philippines. Restaurant also quite expensive, so we walked into Loboc instead (about 1-2km). Disappointed staff didn't help my wife and I get our heavy suitcases to the end of the road (partially unpaved) for a jeepney when we were leaving.

            I don't recommend this place. There are just 2 bathrooms for 5 cottages, no hot water, no pressure for shower. Cottages pretty hot, lots of mosquitos, unconfortable mattress and dirty linen. Very expensive! Stand up paddle 800 pesos per hour, just 1 omelet with just tomato 180 pesos, etc. We thought that would be good for relax in the middle of nature, but it's not truth, lots of noise around, constructions, lot of motorbikes passing in the front street, not beautifull area, nothing to do.

            I've only stayed in the cottages for one night but I think that's more than enough for me to be fully satisfied with my accommodation. The entire place gives off a warm calming vibe, especially with its strategic location in the middle of a natural paradise that is the Loboc River area. The dorm is okay and the beds are each equipped with its own mosquito net. It's very well ventilated as the cool evening breeze comes in as we sleep. It is unfortunate that I wasn't able to make the most out of this place but I hope I could get that chance when I return here in the near future.

            I had one of the most memorable experience here. Accommodation was good. I did not have much problem with mosquito because of net provided and I also used my Off lotion. It was very clean and comfortable inside. There is no aircon but there are 2 electric fans. Location was good riverside to do Stand Up Paddle activity which SUP named after. It was great to be able to rent motorcycle to go around Chocolate hills etc. I really had great motorcycle travel around even at occasional raining too. Staffs are really friendly. I thank to all; Receptionists, Restaurant staffs, Cleaning and maintenance staffs and especially Paddle instructor John Ray. I had great Outdoor experience even I was very beginner of Paddle. I met Troy and he was kind too. It was beautiful surrounding with great nature. I was very happy to find fireflies inside and outside the cottage. I found foods are little expensive but quality is just great. So I think it is reasonable. Thank you everyone at the Fox and Firefly Cottages for making my Bohol travel really wonderful!

            Away from the Hustle and Bustle ”

            Fox & Firefly Cottages felt like an oasis from the hustle and bustle of more touristy areas. At this point in the trip, we had experienced the beaches of the Philippines. We wanted to move inland and experience something off the beaten path. Fox & Firefly Cottages offered just that. Situated right next to the Loboc River and down a dirt path road, we were greeted by staff of the cottages with warm and friendly smiles. They showed us around the premises, pointing out the onsite restaurant (food is wonderful), open air bathroom and showers (beautifully decorated with native plants and one of my favorite parts about this place), and our cottage. We read books in our hammock on the front porch, wrote in our journals while enjoying coffee at the restaurant, and watched the stars on the dock. We enjoyed the night time firefly SUP tour. This was our first time paddle boarding and we did just fine! The tour is peaceful and a unique experience. Being able to rent scooters onsite was a bonus! We really appreciate the hospitality we were shown and highly recommend this place for future visitors.
