Paradise at it's best
We stayed at this resort at the end of our seven week Philippine holiday. The attention to detail to ensure that the guests are comfortable, is superior. Jilo and Ralf make perfect hosts - it's like being part of the J & R family instead of being just a guest at a resort. We shared many a laugh with Jilo and Ralf and of course their lovely staff Ryan and Zen. We highly recommend this wonderful resort to anyone travelling in the Anda area. Should we ever return to the Philippines, J & R Residence is high on our list of places to re-visit.

The best for relaxation on the beach!
Staff/owner, remote water front location, privacy
My wife and I had the most fantastic experience. Ralph and Jilo were exceptional host/hostesses that made us feel welcomed, comfortable and at home. The property is clean, beautiful and feels intimate. The food was delicious and the best we had in the Philippines. Our only regret was that we didn't stay longer and have enough time to try the pork schneitzl.

Nice Location
Location & Quiet
It's a nice place set on a hillside on a very quiet stretch of beach a few minutes (by motorbike) outside of Anda proper. The rooms are newer and the internet fast and mostly reliable. The food is good but over-priced and it can take a while to get orders out of the kitchen. Considering the cost breakfast should be included in the price but that is not a part of their business philosophy.

A home away from home
service, food, private beach
Upon arriving after a long day of traveling we were warmly greeted by the owners and staff. They started off with giving us fresh coconut water. During our time there they really made us feel apart of the family. All of the staff was attentive with splendid, delightful positive attitudes and smiles. Within a couple of days they truly felt like they were friends and family. Jilo and Ralf really made us feel as if we were family coming to visit at there residence, not like a guest at any other resort. If I mentioned that I would like something native, that was not on the menu, they were eager to please. Everything on the menu was absoulty amazing, which is saying a lot since I'm a picky eater. The room was exactly what you would expect and immaculately clean. The property was well manicured everyday. Having wifi throughout the resort was an added benefit. They also have a masseuse that made you feel relaxed at this beautiful getaway. Anything you can think of they can provide. The diver was also really knowledgeable of the area and was a great guide to all the tourist areas. We came during a typhoon and they went out of there way to make sure we still enjoyed our time there and they assisted us in reaching our next destination. Jilo and Ralf care and concern of our time there, and making it to the following destination safely went above and beyond what anyone would expect. She even made the diver at the next place text her upon our arrival. I personally can not wait to go back to J&R Residence with my family. It's location was secluded enough to enjoy true peace and quiet. It's truly and home away from home.

Beautiful & hidden away family-owned resort
Fantastic view, room cleanliness and size, service
This is my husband and I'd 3rd time to the Philippines and first time in Bohol. We had looked through many other hotel choices in Bohol and decided to pick JR due to the location and privacy. When we arrived, the owners Jilo and Ralf was there to greet us which made it feel very warm and feels like coming home. They upgraded our room from seaview apartment to Ocean view villa which was beautiful! We stayed for 4 nights and despite the not so optimal weather at the beginning due to the typhoon, it was still a very enjoyable stay. The resort is located beachfront and it is a really nice walk along the stretch of white sand in the afternoon. The only downfall is there's not much food choices around the place. We had gone in to several of the markets around Anda but with foodies like us, it was disappointing not to have more options. However, the seabreeze restaurant at the resort was pretty good. Quite a lot of food choices. The resort made us feel like home and the owners are wonderful. If I were to go back to Anda, would definitely stay there again!

Truly a place to relax after a long hard work!
If you want rest and relaxation, peace and a quiet place for vacation, this is the best place to be. Food is freshly prepared and always delicious.
I would say we felt truly rested while staying here. The owners and staff were both helpful and so accomodating to our needs. Their hospitality is excellent!!!! I can't complain. No TV in the rooms, therefore my kids stayed outdoor for most of the time swimming in the pool or in the beach. Overall, I would highly recommend this place. Food is excellent! The whole place is clean and well maintained, not crowded with people. We will surely come back here if given the chance.

That place you always dreamed of
Food - Great selection, very reasonably priced, Room - Very Clean, minimal decor but the view from the window, all of one wall was all the decor needed. View - breath takingly beautul
The staff was exceptional, almost too nice to be real. The food was very good, much better than I ever expected given the many options offered. There was no pushing or pressure to do anything, but if you asked they could and did provide anything you could wish for. One thing I would suggest to any visitor, if you like coffee in your room or tea, take something to heat the water with. They are more than willing to bring you hot water, coffee or tea, but I am an earlier raiser and don't like to bother anyone at that time of day... specially my wife.
