          Heaven”

          It's out of the way, it's quiet as can be, and it is probably one of the most relaxing places I've ever been. Activities can be arranged, along with transport to and from the resort. There aren't a ton of food options around, but the chef is SO talented, there's no reason to go elsewhere. The ONLY suggestion I might make is for there to be a book exchange rack. Otherwise, this was paradise and I want to go back ASAP!

          We really like this place and it is our place of choice in the Philippines. The journey from the airport is nearly 2 hours, but it is worth it, as there are not so many turists around, and you have all you need in the resort.

          Only for short stay.”

          peaceful place quite far from everything

          It was a short stop for me on my way from Tagbilaran to Tubigon and back to Cebu, this place is for short term stay only, I guess I will never return there anymore just because there is nothing special to see especially if you was at Panglao Island before. Hotel was refurbished after earthquake in 2013 - the walls of my room had still visible cracks even under new paint. In room I had very short bed - it is definitely Asian size bed - if you are 185cm tall the beds will be short for you. I was laughing a lot because almost on every wall, door, even in the shower you will see so many warnings cautions and prohibitions that you can feel like in a kindergarten... I have to say I never saw something like that before... The hotel is quite pricey - hotel transportation is very expensive, prices of meals are so so, but portions are rather small, hotel is providing soft drinks for "free", but water from big plastic tanks had strange plastic smell so I was buying my own water in Calape town. If you want to get for some reason to this hotel you can travel easy or from Tagbilaran bus station or from Tubigon by bus to Calape town, there is a lot of buses everyday in both directions or you can use also local vans - but there is always a lot of passangers inside a very little room for legs. You will travel for couple of pesos not for thousands :) From Calape you will get to the hotel by trike - it is usually more expensive than bus from Tagbilaran ;) There is mangrove forest around coast so be prepared for thousands of mosquitoes. They were renting there motorbike during my stay, but technical quality of brakes and tyres were not good (hope they fixed it already) so be careful if you will rent it...

          service oriented - and nice and clean hotel.

          When I got to the hotel by taxi, there was no road signs that showed where the hotel was. Big trouble finding the small road to the hotel without road signs. When I approached and saw the hotel I said to the taxi driver wait, I'm not so sure if I will stay here. I need to check, everything seemed leisurely. This was just the first impression. The hotel was absolutely wonderful and run by a very cozy family. The family is very service oriented and absolutely unparalleled. Even 5 star hotel has a lot to learn from this family. This is completely unique, and I give my best recommendations. I stayed in room, great, very delicate and nice and clean. A rare gem in Bohol run by a wonderful family. THANKS A LOT !

          Very nice and clean hotel just in front of the beach. The staff are all polite, accomodating, and very much helpful. There are many varieties of the food provided at the restaurant, I just stayed only 2 nights so could not try many but all the dishes I taken were very nice. If I get the chance to visit Bohol again, I would like to stay in this hotel.

          Overall we had a wonderful stay at Islay Hayahay. It's an incredible, off-the-beaten track location, gorgeous waterfront, and there were plenty of activities. The food was also good and freshly prepared and we enjoyed drinks at the bar and on our porch. We loved walking through the village as well, everyone was so friendly! The countryside tour with Abner was also a highlight. I'm removing one star for staff as the managers directed us to a ticket counter in town that not only wouldn't sell us ferry tickets in advance given the season, but didn't even sell the right route we were looking for. Some of the local staff members ended up helping us arrange the correct transfer, but only after we'd rearranged our sightseeing schedule to make the trip all the way to the town ticket counter and back empty-handed. This is essential information for guests that they should have had on-hand. A few suggestions for facilities: open access for clean pool/beach towels, and for the price it would be nice to have a fridge and toiletries beyond soap/shampoo in the room. I do know the managers are working to improve the property and they have already perked it up with fresh paint. Highly recommend if you are in Bohol and looking for a quiet, relaxing stay with good access to activities.

          Very Relaxing Spot”

          Highly recommended place on Pangangan Island, over the causeway from Bohol Island proper. Clean, well maintained, comfy beds, good food, very nice staff, has pool with waterslide plus sea access, good views, decent wifi, kayak and snorkelling gear hire, Bohol tours arranged. They have eight bungalows, with a restaurant and small bar. I paid 250 pesos to get here by motor tricycle from Tubigon ferry port. Very friendly locals on the island, good to have a beer with at one of the small shops outside the gate. Also a pizza place just up the road. Other than that, Pangangan life is pretty laid back; not party central, but an excellent spot to recharge your batteries.

          Great value, peaceful location, fantastic staff.

          Booked for 3 nights but extended our stay. We thoroughly enjoyed everything about this little oasis. The staff,especially Don Don and Brian, couldn't be more attentive and Scott and Jacqui, the owners, worked so hard to make our stay so enjoyable. There was so much to do should you wish from day trips off the property or relaxing with a massage, fishing or kayaking on property. Once the pool is finished guests won't want to leave.

          Scenery, food, staff

          I wish we could have stayed longer, I booked as last minute getaway for our family and isla hayahay was exactly what I could have dreamed of. Upon arrival we were greeted and shown to our room which was clean and quite large. The place is So quiet and peaceful with some of the nicest staff I've seen and they were great with our small kids. We snorkeled and swam just off the private small beach and also visited another close by island. The food here is amazing to say the least its not fast food pricing but wow it's worth it. I read some of the recent reviews but I think a lot of it was of the guests own doing. If you want a party place this isn't it but if you want a peaceful resort come here. We still had wifi which was good enough. Tv's were in right spot not sure if changed? No power issues (but I'm told by staff that the government recently upgraded main supply to bohol). Insects and Mosquitos were same as anywhere else but the staff did offer off lotion just in case. Transfer from the port was easy as was arranging our island hopping. I will be back especially hearing about some of the future plans here it will be even better. It's a real scenic paradise with old fashioned Philippino hospitality. Wish I could have stayed a week!

          The restaurant by the sea is nice, if you go outside of the rainy season (July-August). The staff is really friendly, and they found us a driver to go wherever we wanted on the island for sightseeing.

          Rooms were clean, no mosquitoes, nice food. The journey to access the resort was really long, since you have to wait for the ferries that always are hours late. The resort is in a remote location, so once you get there, you need a car to get out and do sightseeing. This is obviously a good resort for divers and snorkelers, but for anything else it is a bit remote (chocolate hills and tarsiers are a couple hours away).

          quiet surroundings, ocean at door steps, close to mangrove's and one hour drive to chocolate hills

          nice hotel, staff was good, food was excellent (home made taste), bar menu was good, but the hotel is quite far and there is absolutely nothing in the evening (not a problem with that, unless u r travelling with small children and they fell ill).. i repeat, absolutely nothing. chocolate hills is close to one hour drive from this hotel. this hotel is on an small island which is connected mainland through a two lane bridge. this bridge should be around 2 km's so once you reach the hotel there is nothing nearby in case of emergency. otherwise the hotel is really nice. you can have a mangrove tour which surrounds bridge connecting this island to the mainland, it is just 5~10 mins from the hotel. chocolate hills is one hour drive, you can rent a ca and visit various places like chocolate hill's, man made forest, etc. the only drawback is that if you plan to do dolphin, whale sight seeing then this is not the right hotel, as you can see whale's and dolphin's only in the early morning like 06:30 am and that sight is pretty much far from this hotel (approx 1.5~2 hours).

          Location, outside ambiance, food.

          The curtains were see-through. The air conditioner blew in our faces all night long. The internet wi-fi connection didn't seem to reach any rooms. Had to go outside to the room above the restaurant to get a good connection. Other than that, the place was wonderful, and we enjoyed our time.

          Reef just off the small beach. Service. Free snorkeling gear

          Food was good, but the selection was a little low - there aren't a lot of other choices nearby. Inland tour and island hopping tour was great. Contact owner for a package deal for best rates on these. The couple in the next cabin booked directly and saved about 50% versus what we paid for doing the same things "ala carte".
